Found out last week that I will be going to the SuperBowl. I won the trip through here and the prize package is $16,500!!!! It includes air fare for 2, hotel stay, NFL package to the game and $500.00 spending money. Still trying to take it all in!

I understand very much so on not talking about your win. I have had people I know give me a green face when I shared a win. I usually don't say anything about winning anymore either.

actually, Ginger, I'm rethinking this. There were some people in the forums awhile back, they were mean and snarky almost always. One person actually lost a win because someone saw her post and reported to the sponsor she was a member on a sweeps site.

But a lot of them aren't here anymore, have probably moved on to facebook or other social media. And don't get me wrong, there were some awesome people too. One person still here claims she wasn't so nice, but I don't remember that.

Maybe people are evolving into better people. I realize the people living on my street are nicer than the ones who were here 10 years ago.

Wouldn't that be cool, if we all just kept on improving!

Well my mother always told me that I tell people exactly what I think. I have always cheered for the underdog and I really can not stand people who think they are better than others. She was right . We are made in the image of something spectacular and no one has a right to bring down your shining moment unless it is hurting other people or you are doing it out of spite. Not everyone will win, that is a fact but when someone does and they tell people it's because they want to share their joy, maybe it will give hope to someone who needs that little push to keep going. Trolls who live under the bridge and try to charge tolls just piss me off I will tell them and I won't back down. I have done that a lot lately. I say good for you and anyone else who wins a sweep!
People who make sour comments about someone else's joy will have bad karma hit 10 fold!

GOOD LUCK TO ALL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If that's a concern wait until after you've received the prize and then tell us, I'd love to congratulate you!

I don't think it's anyone's business that you are on a sweepstakes website.. it also doesn't mean you found out about that particular sweeps here either. And I'm surprised that a prize would be denied because of it.

I think most people are happy for those who win.. and knowing people actually can win something gives you hope in winning also.

Especially in these days where the wins are slow for many of us, we need to see there is still a chance and it doesn't all fall to the "social" crowd.

I have won a couple HOFs early on and am very grateful since in my case they helped us out. And everyone has prizes they'd like to win and sweeps they don't bother with.. so it's nice to hear a variety of wins and what it means to someone. I don't want a trip win, but I enjoy hearing of someone winning one and see their excitement and can imagine what they will be enjoying!

unfortunatly some sponsors think sweepers-are greedy people-who just want free stuff- who do not shop their products -and some will not award the prize if they find out the winner is a sweeper-we are sweepers but we also are consumers and for some reason some sponsors just cant or will not understand this

Every entry is a potential Winner -
