So far this year, I received a $10 prize that I won at the end of last year, but I haven't had any wins yet in 2017. I had very few wins last year, and the biggest one was a $50 Discover card.

So far this year I've won 2 pair of Fandango Tix and that's it. But I figure that has covered the cost of my OLS subscription and I've still got lots of time to catch a big one this year. My mantra is that it only takes one entry to win....and this could be the one!

Majority of wins these days come from blogs and Text2Win contest for me. Yes most prizes are smaller but Amazon Gift Cards do add up.

Winning a bunch this past month or so, and waiting on a number of prizes to be delivered. Doesn't quite feel like the good old days of sweeping, but winning is good.

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

I have used Opera for years because my computer seems to like it better. I didn't win much last year but have a few this year. Ex: Cheetos, Tecate, FYE, Rachael Ray, Circle K, Guerrero, lipstick site, and a gift box. All were not the grand prize but they were very nice. The last 4 were from Instagram.

I did win a trip last year. I think you can still win. It just seems to be harder and you really have to be consistent with your entries. I have also won a few little ones. Good luck!!

Been a few years since I've won a really great prize. Doesn't seem to be that many great prizes like there use to be.

Wow! Hats off. This year has been pretty slow. A fit bit, a blue tooth speaker and a baby seat that never showed up. Live in hope......

Sweepstakes win
I used to win big prizes super bowl win and $3000, new 52" TV hundreds of small prizes. Now I spend time everyday and get hit hard with spam.

I have been doing this for twenty years and gone are the good days when I would write thousands of snail mail entries. Now its twitter and facebook. No fun there at all.

I believe budgets are cut, more online entries and social media.

The days of big prizes seem to be gone. Even Publix who I would win major prizes have none now.
