Get a premium membership and enter as much as you can, but keep it fun and take breaks when you need to.
Great contest!!

Keep on entering! This year I won my second car, plus a not-quite-HOF trip for my family that will be an "only in sweepstaking" experience. Thanks for the great contest, I've never been to a convention or to New Hampshire!

My favorite win was trip to Deadwood, SD. Deadwood rocks!

Remember that this is suppose to be an 'enjoyable' hobby.

By constantly complaining about lack of sweeps/lack of wins and the very sweep sites that make the list of sweeps available for you to enter is a negative behavior that reaps negative rewards.

So keep entering, no complaining and keep counting the wins!

Hey KB! Long time no see! Best tip....go to a national convention if you can afford it. It's so fantastic to meet all the OLSers in attendance. Fun times! And, keep entering...you never know! Good luck all!

if you like to enter alot of the email type contests, where in the body they need your info etc, then set your signature to have all the info
email (yes include your email addy)
phone and
DOB (and yes you should give your real DOB esp if they ask for ID to confirm)

when you go to enter the contest, put your mouse into the body of the email
click your signature link
and presto
fast and easy and no worries about typos (esp if you have a fairly complicated email addy )

The best tip I can think of is this: Don't worry if you catch a daily entry on its last day, don't worry about how many other entries people can get... just remember that it only takes ONE ENTRY to win! You can't win if you don't enter, so never get discouraged and think, "Oh, I'll never win." Just enter!

I'd just like to thank OLS for having such a terrific site! I've only been sweeping for a little over a year now, and OLS has been a tremendous help in locating available sweeps! Thanks for having the Convention giveaway and keep up the good work!

Don't enter for things you can't use/don't want/don't even know what it is.
When there is one prize and you have to ask what did I just win it probably isn't something you should have been spending your time on.
