Do people really win these things?
Im a newbie but I think this sounds a little too good to be true. Has anyone ever really won anything and how many sweepstakes have you won?

Yes, we win sometimes and it's wonderful! It's certainly not too good to be true, because it requires time and effort and sorting through lots of junk mail, but to many of us, myself included, it is well worth it.

There are winners lists in the forums where you can see what OLSers have won.

If you stick around, I wish you much luck!

We do win. I've won a 10 day cruise in my son's name (He took cash instead $7500), a $1,000 custom bicycle, a laptop, and many small prizes which I can always use or give to a friend or family member. It's a great hobby but never be certain of winning and you may be surprised by the great prize that comes your way! Good luck!

I just got my latest win from Better Homes and Gardens today. $120 worth of Sophyto skin care products. Just depends upon your luck and how much time you are willing to put into it.

Hello and welcome to OLS! I have won several prizes over the years, some with a small value and some with high values. People post about their wins here every day. Have fun and good luck!

to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

People really do. I won $100,000 a few years ago, trips, and gift cards to name just a few of my favorites!

You will find that the more you enter the more you win. If you only enter a few, then you may or may not win anything. If you enter a LOT you will win something.

You really have to jump in with both feet!

I find the $30/yr subscription to be well worth it!

I am a very practical person and need to make sure my hobby pays for itself. I have never won less than $30/yr and mostly I win well over $200.

I win a lot of practical things. One win this year was 5 boxes of Fiber One cereal. Right there that paid for my subscription.

Good luck! The key to this is to keep with it! I would suggest 'going green'. This is one of the best websites out there for sweeping!

People tell me I'm the luckiest person they know, because I win a few things. I would never say, I'm lucky. I work at it and I work hard at winning. Lots of time consumed.

I have won 5 trips, cash, ipod, candles, bicycle, shot chiller, T-shirts, gift cards, make-up, etc. etc. etc. I have been doing this since 2004. The wins are far and few between now, not as good as years ago, but with some patience, every now and then a nice win shows up. Must enter alot and be patient!!

No people don't win. Don't take up this hobby....

Seriously, if they didn't win, do you think they would do this for years and years?
