Best time to enter one time sweeps
Hey there,

For those that have been Grand Prize winners, is your routine to enter one time entry sweeps is when they are new or expiring. I know it is luck but statistically speaking I am sure there is some kind of average within this group.

I am awake right now so I guess this must be a good time, insomnia has set in, used to have no problems sleeping.

Everyone has their own way of entering, just find the time that works best for you. But I do definately agree with those who are saying the best time to enter is when you're awake!

ive tried early, middle, and late. usually not the very last day though because some end early or the end dates on OLS dont match up. ive never really tracked my winning frequency against when i entered.

my thinking is, as long as im in there i have a chance and thats all that matters.

I usually enter as soon as I see them because you never know if they'll end sooner than expected.

However, one time I entered a one entry only Radio Delilah sweep the last possible minute, that was ending on a Sunday at midnight and they were calling me the next morning telling me I won a trip! I really think I was the last person that entered and here they were calling me at 9 am telling me I won! Go figure.

Whenever I see them posted.. whether it's in the new sweeps, the expiring sweeps or under a category.. I figure I may not find them again.. they'll just get lost if I put them in my sweeps with all the ones I've already entered!

Time to win, win, win!!

I enter most everything the day after they're posted. Some things I don't catch until the day before they expire. I've won from both, though all of my biggest prizes have come from daily entries.
