Best sweeping tip-take a break from time to time, so you don't get burned out.

A computer is only as good as the person using it.

Give your husband or wife a nice prize that you won ( I gave mine an hp laptop). Then buy them their own OLS subscription. That way they won't mind how long you stay online! And, if your DH is like mine, he will enjoy your new found quality time as you sit side by side sweeping the night away. lol

Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate.

I don't get to sweep as much as I'd like, so I sweep for those things that would mean the most to me, like video equipment, software, computers, etc. Every now and then I try for a cruise.

I think my best tip for anyone that wanted to enter sweepstakes, is to make a commitment to do it and do it consistently. Use the things that are out there to make it easier to do as well. Things like OLS, roboform, and such. It will make it much faster to enter, and hopefully you will win more. More entries means more possibly wins!

Entering Sweepstakes can be a fun and rewarding hobby. If it's not as fun as it used to be to you, take a break or change your way of entering up a bit.

Good Luck,
Lisa

Thanks for the contest!
The best tip I have for anyone who wants to win sweepstakes is enter as many as you can. You're bound to win some of them.

I love OLS! I am so happy that I finally found a hobby that I know I will do forever! I usually like things for awhile then move on to something else. I do get burned out on sweeping, but my excitement usually comes back before long and its just like when I first discovered OLS and the sweeping universe - I was in awe!

I am not sure I have too much advice - I haven't won much, and I haven't won anything over $200, but even with that, the thrill of possibility and hope is what keeps me coming back. If you love sweeping, you have to do it! Make sure you love it! (oh and make sure you read the rules!)

Love Sweepstakes
I love how much sweepstaking has changed my life. We've won a house, four cars, lots of cash, and 30 trips in the past eight years, and this has helped us upgrade our life beyond what we ever had a chance to before sweepstaking entered our lives. We are forever grateful to those who helped us begin this hobby, and for all the sponsors who have helped us get where we are today. I love each and every sponsor we've won from and support them by buying their products, and we will continue to do so. I am so happy to have been blessed with such support from sweepstakes friends and wins and the wonderful memories created by them! I wish everyone wins beyond their dreams!!
