Wins Compared to last year at this point.
Just hit the 50th win for the year. Less wins this year compared to last year at this point but the value of the wins is almost twice what it was at this point last year. The number of sweepstakes have entered this year is more compared to last year. Good luck everyone!!

My wins this year are dismal compared to any in the past. But.... I just returned from a trip win to Norway that I technically won last year so I don't care too much. Hope it picks up enough for me to win next year's vacation!

Last year was nothing to write home about (around $870). This year has been worse.

I am a bit pickier due to having to find cash to pay back on the health care subsidies on ANY win.. where if it were just taxes, I have a buffer zone.

So far 2017 wins are twice what they were in 2015 or 2016, which isn't saying much. I used to win at least 2-4 trips a year but haven't won a trip in probably 3 years now. Not like it used to be, that is for sure.

It's been 2 years since I won a trip but I had to turn down due to timing. It was a trip to the Disney Radio Music Awards. I use multiple methods to find sweepstakes OLS (of course), Tweet Deck, Google, Facebook, and other sweepstakes directories as well. Have to use Sweepstakes List software to keep track of my entries

Haven't won hardly anything to speak of since a couple of years ago. The sponsors just aren't doing the great contests any longer, there use to be game systems, tv's, so much you could win, now theres nothing great to win, I don't get on contests that have travel wins, I watch my grandsons for my son, they're 3 and 2 7 year olds so I can't go on trips, sometimes there a first prize to them that I would like but never enough that you would actaully have a chance at them. Subway use to give great prizes away, cameras, game systems, games all that good stuff and it was easy to get codes, but now it's just not worth entering for a sub sandwich, just not worth the effort anymore.

I haven't been keeping track of my wins like I used to so I don't know if I've won more or less then at this time last year. However, just two of my wins totaled $400 in free clothes so I'm happy.



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

Looking at the year overall, I have definitely won more this year than last year. It makes sense though since I've had a little more time I can devote to sweeping than last year!
