Listen to local radio stations and sign up for all their online newsletters. Often they will email you details of "members only" contests that are never announced on the air.

My favorite trip and was to the Playboy Mansion I won here. I took my daughter whose birthday was July 4th, she turned 21. It was something she will never forget. Never give up, keep entering.

My favorite win
My favorite win was a DVD player from a survey site.

Our DVD player has just stopped working and we didn't have a VCR. This was over 5 years ago and it still works perfectly!

My sweepstakes tip: Only enter for items you would use or can give to family for friends. Sweeping to sell your wins takes an item that someone else may really need.

The win that wasn't...
Lately, alot of folks have gotten notices of wins- only to find out they got the wrong prize, it wasn't the grand prize- or worse, no prize at all...

Chances are- if you have been sweeping a while- it will happen to you if it hasn't already. It DOES stink (from the folks that have been there- I took a poll last time it happened to me & my whole house agreed, it SUX!!! lol.)

Anyway, do NOT give up, despair- or worse. Just take it like a sweeper and keep on sweeping.

Chances are- the real thing, is just around the corner. I also took a poll on this & my family agrees, it gets MUCH better!!!

Here's hoping breakfast is NOT early...

one thing I recommend is BELIEVING you will win~
If you have a negative attitude... its not as fun!
Besides...its just a HOBBY!
I just started sweeping here on OLS in January and have won over $3000.00 worth of items!
one was $1,000.00 CHECK from Lifetime TV!!

This is so kind. I've always wanted to visit one of these conventions.
My best tip is to enter, enter, enter....the more you enter, the better your chances.
Thank you so much for having this contest.

Don't be afraid to enter recipe/essay contests. The pool of entries are so much smaller and the odds are so much better!!!

Thanks for having the contest!

Play to Win
You have to play to WIN. You can't win it if your name ain't in it!

Winners never quit and quitters never win!

Bottom line....HAVE FUN! Sweeping is a hobby....get the whole family involved in entering. It makes the wins so much more exciting when you get the reward together.
