Has anyone really ever won from a creative presentation sweep? I personally hate those and very rarely enter them. If I had my way, I would get rid of them on OLS and maybe that would initiate a change from those companies and how they handle their sweeps. Plus I just hate them.

If a bird and a fish fell in love, where would they live?

I started sweeping years ago, back in the early eighties lol.
It was through a sweepstake newsletter subscription. I would mail hundreds of entries and hardly ever won anything.
Then I started entering via internet around 15 or so years ago and the sweepstakes newsletter ended.
I've heard all kinds of things that would dq you.
Using RoboForm because they checked for key strokes or if you entered through a sweeps website were the main warnings.
I won tons of great sweeps like $3,500 cash, a Panasonic Tough book laptop, a trip for two to Vegas along with tons of visa/amex gift cards and I ignored all those warnings.
I quit sweeping about 5 years ago because I got burned out on it, but started up again a couple months ago.
Since then, I've won:
$50 Southwest Airline g/c
$50 Amex card
$100 e-code
$10 e-code
basket ball hoop
cell phone holder for you car
This isn't bad for just a couple months.
I have noticed that the sweeps aren't as good as they used to be, but it's still exciting when you win

I used to win Snickers candy bar coupons quite a bit, but that seems to be over now, too.

I don't enter the sweeps that force you to take several newsletters to enter. No Bright Cellars for me. When I noticed that I was getting subscriber only sweepstakes offers from companies whose newsletters to which I had chosen to subscribe, I was very interested. Now every time I see the box that says "Would you like to receive offers, news, etc.?" from reputable companies, I subscribe. I get notice of many new "open" sweeps, a few days or more, before they get posted here. The "subscriber only sweeps" are not of high value, usually $50 - 100 or some branded merchandise. They are fun! These are Big Companies maintaining their customer loyalty with subscribers.
