sweepstakes email addresses?
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but can I get disqualified if my email eludes to winning? showmeawinner@gmail.com is the email I created solely for entering... could that get me disqualified somehow? I sure hope not but if theres the slightest chance I will change the email i use. Id hate to think my 1 hour plus every day entering the last 2 months has been all for naught. Thanks and good luck to all!

It could be worse. willcheat4win@outlook.com would probably be a killer. LOL

I would change it....you just never know.

Entering for just a few months, in the past 6 months was a good time line for entering/winning.

Just give it a little more time.

This has been up for debate before. Mine has bigwinner in it. I win some good stuff, but I will never know if I was ever disqualified because of it.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

I wouldn't change it, but that's just me. I really doubt that if you are picked as a winner through a reputable company that you won't be disqualified because of it. That just seems like it would be way too petty of them to me.

I wouldn't change it either . .I don't think it would DQ you and you wouldn't know if it did.

I do like it. It's a play on an F. Scott Fitzgerald quote, isn't it?

Show me a hero and I'll write you a tragedy or something like that.
Maybe you'll have some wins that are so big they're tragic.

My email has wins in it and though not as plentiful now, they still arrive, so I really don't think it matters.

Some people change their email addy just hoping for a change of luck even if it has nothing in it to suggest being a sweeper.

Funny posts above!

I am switching over to gmail to handle the sheer volumes of emails from sweeping. Don't get me started...

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!
