BHG or Woman's World Wins
Tried to post this yesterday, and not sure what happened to my post. LOL

Has anyone on here ever won a BHG (Better Homes & Gardens) Sweepstakes? I have seen a couple of small Woman's World wins on here, but was wondering if anyone had won big on their site?

I'm new to sweeping and these contests are a bit time consuming to enter so I was wondering if it was even worth my time.

Please, tell me your thoughts!

I generally skip them, but as the saying goes, "You can't win if you don't enter."

True, true. I just haven't seen ANYWHERE where anyone has posted a win for BHG. I know the sweepstakes are real, but you'd think you'd see a win posted.

Any clues as to the best sweepstakes to enter?

I used to enter them all the time (never won) but stopped entering when they all apparently became creative presentations with the same prizes showing up on multiple contest sites.

That's the golden question. Everyone has their own ideas and many people track their wins to see if there is a trend for them. I'm all over the place. The more time I spend entering, the more time I win. Like today, I'm wasting time posting on the OLS message board instead of sweeping, so I'm hurting my chances at winning.

Thanks for the info guys. I think I'll stop entering the BHG contests, because you're right. I have seen those same prizes on parents, ladies home journal...etc.

Good luck to everyone!!

I won the BHG daily about 2 months ago. I got the $100 AmEx giftcard about 5 weeks later. Super easy, and great communication.

I've won a few times from Womens World or the sister sites.
Not huge, but $300 - $500 each time.

Thanks for sharing - I'm glad to hear from people who are actually winning some of these things. They have some great prizes. I do like to enter for the BHG daily prizes so this is encouraging news!
