Leite Culinaria
Is anyone else having trouble with the new Leite Culinaria sweep entries? I find they load very slowly and hold up all the other sweeps lined up with Shazam. It takes me double the time to enter the same amount of sweeps from only a couple of weeks ago. Is it just me?

I just entered mine. No problem but I enter manually. I DO NOT have high speed internet. It took about 1 minute for each one. Is technology slowing you down?

They are SOOO slow, sometimes I give up waiting for them to load, makes no difference which browser I use or if I clean my cache and sometimes the computer simply freezes up. So frustrating because I really love the prizes, the books and the site itself. But it has become an odious chore to attempt to enter.

The only thing that I've ever found that quickens the pace of entering the Leite's sweeps is to do them ONE AT A TIME whether it's a one time daily entry or a 3 time daily entry.
If you open more than one sweep's worth of entry form windows at a time...as with Shazam it just spins and spins.

You CAN open 3 entry windows at the same time if it's a 3 times daily sweep...as long as it's the same prize.
Once in a while it will still spin a little entering this way...but most times it's a LOT quicker!

If their prizes weren't so nice and actually "winnable" I'd probably stop entering...
...but I've won some great stuff from them and they ship the prizes out to you fast...unlike the slow pace of entering to win them

For me, I think it's because they have so many ads. It takes forever for all the ads to load before I can actually input my information. They do have such great prizes so I only enter for the ones I really, really want to win.

No problems here, and I won from them again a couple weeks ago.

I've never had any problems. Went to a few today, and was able to enter each in under 15 seconds.

I wonder if the folks that are having problems have ad blockers.

I think they have slow computers. Mine is a fast quad core and Leite's sweeps load very quickly. There are problems only when I try to enter one before the other has finished.

Think my problem is ads always take longer then main page to load, so page continually shifts while you are typing in entry fields...
