Has anyone ever won a grand prize sweepstake?
I'm talking about anything from large sums of money, to cars, vacations, etc. I ask because I always read the cereal box when I'm eating and wonder whether people actually win. I also never put my name in a sweepstakes give-away box because I feel like it is pointless. On a similar note, I wonder how many times I actually won something but threw it away thinking it was fake, or i just didn't notice. Please share your interesting stories

Yes...I've been entering online sweeps for 21 years, and over that time, I have won over 3000 prizes...both large and small! However, I have yet to win a car...darn it!

I tried for years to win the 3 C's. I also lacked the car. At the end of 2016, I won a Polaris ATV. Sometimes I'm tempted to count that as a car. lol

Many Wins
I have been sweeping since 1997 and have won more than 10 trips, including the high Arctic, Bora Bora, NCAA Final Four and several cruises. Also TVs, laptops, and $2k gift card.

Unfortunately, my last big win was 2009 ... things have really slowed down in the last 10 years.

Yes, my biggest win was a trip to Los Angeles that came with Universal tickets, Paramount studio tour, gift basket and $1,500 spending cash. However, with social media playing a prominent role, there is more competition and less prizes to win. I still enjoy entering, but wins are few and far between these days.

Many many grand prizes. Last one from OLS, 2019 Evian U.S. Open trip to New York for tennis in September. Bucket list trip! Also $50,000 from SONY, Beijing China for Summer Olympics from Hilton, Hawaii from Dole, Hawaii from Sheraton, Puerto Rico from VISA, a car from State Farm, whew, too many to list or remember. 17 years of sweeping. Last 5-7 years decline in quality and quantity of prizes, sadly from companies. But I sure canít complain!

My Wins

I've won several times and I did win a car in 2014. It is possible to win big but you have to be consistent. I've not won a Hall of Fame in awhile though but I never give up hope.
