Did anybody ever win anything big in online sweepstakes?
I am new in entering online sweepstakes. But I had thought why not to try!
It would be nice to win anything. We just had a baby so our finances are really tight right now. We could use a trip somewhere...

Please be serious and honest if you ever won anything like: trips, car, big cash etc.

SO far all I noticed is that I am receiving tons of spams in my inbox and a lot of junk mail. I hate both.

Is there any hope?

Thanks,
fidelis1

Just check out the winners circle where you posted this note. Just float around the site you'll see that yes people do win.

Yes
First of all set up a free email account at some place like yahoo. That way you can contain the spam. I started sweeping in Aug 2002. I won $1000 to send my kids to camp last year. This year I've won a trip to Steamboat Spring, CO (which I turned down because my kids were in school and I had been trying for a bike for that sweeps instead of the trip). I won a 4-day trip to Hollywood to meet Ryan Seacrest but traded it for $1000. Then I just won a new computer along with $1000 worth of dvd's and $1000 worth of cd's from VH1. So yes people do win big prizes;however this is mainly a hobby and most likely you will not win enough to quit your job or even pay off the credit card. That being said, I have a closet full of small prizes that really stretch the budget at Xmas time. If you want to see what people win, take a look at the grand prize thread in the winners forum.

Paula!

About 4 years ago, I won a 42 inch plasma TV valued at 16,133 dollars at a site called deliverE (out of business now). They agreed to send me the Cash and sent a check for 16,133 dollars and it came 27 cents postage due. I went ahead and payed the postage. Biggest thing I've ever won.

This place sucks! All I win are trips and cash prizes. I can't even win a stupid poster or a key ring, or even a dumb little stuffed weiner dog. Don't waste your time.

Thanks for your advice. It makes you wonder how much what you see there is T

A lot of people just post things in there just to get free attention to their busniess websites.

Any time you win a major prize you can
roughly figure 30% of the value will be
what you will have to pay Uncle Sam for taxes
Good luck to you

I think you have to consider also the people who don't post their wins - I'd say 90% don't!

We just got back from a trip to Sea World in San Diego in mid-July. All of my dad's brothers and sisters and all their kids came, too, as well as my mom's sister and her kids, and all of my husband's family on his dad's side. It was a family reunion that I won from Busch Gardens and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Everyone got park passes to Sea World, free parking, a two-night hotel stay, two different t-shirts, a Shamu plush toy, dinner at the park, etc.- all included in the prize! In addition, we got a check for $10,000, which we used to pay for everyone to get there.

So in answer to your question...YES! I personally have won quite a few things, and this trip was the biggest! Keep entering, and eventually you'll win big, too! Good luck!
