The dollar amount varies with me so much that it's hard to give an average. I seem to win a lot but mostly small stuff. I've won 15 times this month but only two have been worth over $10. One nice win would far surpass my 15. However, I'm also very much grateful for winning anything because it keeps my dreams alive for the BIG one.

I have been doing this since before the internet... started in 1986 with snails. I have won just about everything you can win including two cars. cash, trips appliances you name it I have won it. Now with the age of internet... things are different. It is not as much fun... I continue to sweep as it is as much a part of my day as eating dinner... I never miss a day!

i can honestly say my average has gone down every year since I started. I never won a hof but have won a lot of med sized prizes that add up and i never have to pay taxes under 600.00 so I can live with it!!

I used to win over 10,000 but in the past few years I'm lucky if I win 500. Mostly my fault because I don't enter nearly as much as I used to.

I think it's pretty neat that the poll keeps track of percentage. And I'm surprised that there are as many people doing pretty good as there are! Good luck everyone!

I had my best win ever yesterday! I was setting in the doctors office with my wife, ( My wife had an ear infection) this little girl, about nine years old comes up to me , and said that her dad ordered my book, and they both read it, she knew me by the picture in the book, she said her dad was in Afghanistan now, and she just wanted to give me a hug for what I did for our Country.

So far this year I've won a $40 Birchbox win (which I loved!). My average since 2008 has been around $28K a year. I'm looking for a BIG win soon ROFL!!!!!!

That is a wonderful win, you made a difference.

I did a little math today. I have 50,774 expired sweeps, and I've won $78,664.86 worth of prizes since 2007. (I became a member here in 2005, but didn't really start entering until 2007).

So basically, I've been paid about $1.60 per sweep that I've entered.

My lowest year was around $1,900 in wins, and my highest was $32,400.

I swear that I alternate. AMAZING! year, year I question WTF I'm doing with all that time. AMAZING! year.

Even in the $10,000 plus category, I can keep track. You don't have much choice. I wonder how much I'd have to win to not keep track. When I hit 10K, I watch my wins very carefully, so I don't hit the next tax bracket.

Most years I average around $1,000. My highest year was 2008 with $5,251 in wins. Last year was my lowest year with less than $500 worth of wins but I hardly entered any sweeps last year - I got tired of spending 8 hours a day entering with hardly anything to show for it so I took a long break. Hopefully I can get back into my winning ways this year. I want 2014 to beat out 2008 as my highest year.

My wins for 2013, Grand Total AVR for 2013= 11,926.20 and most of them were small wins. They add up quick when you are winning 15-20 per month or more.

Just in January, Feb and March -I am over 1500.00
