Cool!

The best tip I know for sweeping is to get that premium membership and keep entering!

The best tip I can give is have patience and NEVER EXPECT to win. Thinking this hobby is going to supplement your income is a huge let down and will make it become boring and frustrating fast.

( btw, I don't need the lodging, I live 7 miles from the convention site )

Even if you can't do your dailies every day, check the New and Expiring daily as some sweepstakes have a very short entry period.

My Wins---> 2014 * 2013 * 2012 * 2011 * 2010 * 2009/2008

I just wanted to say how much sweepstakes have positively influenced myself and my family since I started entering a few years ago. We have done many things and won many items and even discovered new products that just would not have been possible without sweeps. I am so grateful to have found something I love to do and has a good impact on my life.

I just wanted to say that even when I haven't had time to do sweeps I always check and enter the expiring ones for the week
Thanks

Sweeping has allowed me to do some great things that money can't buy. I am a firm believer that life is to be experienced to it's fullest. I have won some great opportunities to participate in activities that either I couldn't have afforded or were only available to "winners".

What a thing to do. I enter enter enter. So what if I don't win everytime, or every 100,000 times. Something deep inside me says my day will come. It is a great thing to do.

Three tips:
1. Read the official rules before entering.
2. Enter only for sweepstakes that you want or need the prize (e.g., if you don't need a wheelchair, ADHD or diabetes-related sweepstakes prizes (three past examples of specialized prizes), please leave those prizes for those who do).
3. Don't think that entering sweepstakes will make you rich or substitute for a job. (Of course, if it does, lucky you!)

My best win of last year was a Wii that I gave away as a Christmas present.

It's now my 7th year here and I would love to go to the convention.
Thanks for the great MOC and the opportunity to meet some of the OLS peeps!

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

My favorite win is winning a Million Skymiles! It was several years ago but I still have most of it and still saving up for an international trip. It allows me to enter some no transportation sweeps too. I havent been to a sweeps convention in 5 years and I want to meet Brett and all of you OLSers!

I think the best sweepstakes tip I can give is enter for things you really want to win for yourself, I think if you // everybody does that your chances of winning are greater and more people from OLS city will have some fantastic wins to talk about.

Thanks Brent // KB for giving this trip away again and for the site.
