What is the biggest prize you have won using RoboForm?
I'm just curious. A part of me thinks the reason why I haven't won any big cash prize (say more than $1,000) is because I use RoboForm on almost every single entry (except for flash entries). I can't prove that sponsors are dq'ing people for using RoboForm...but I sometimes I think they do. All 3 of my trip wins, where either from local tv stations or from sweeps that I had to hand-type the forms in (flash sweeps) and I didn't use RoboForm to enter those sweeps.

I believe the largest prize I ever won using RoboForm was a $500 check from Chase Bank. I wonder if only certain companies dq people who use RoboForm and other companies don't...I don't know for sure.

What are your opinions on RoboForm? I only type out sweep forms if the sweep rules says that only manually key-stroked entries will be excepted. Maybe I am just paranoid. Or maybe I haven't been lucky enough to win a large cash prize. I know there is a lot of more people entering sweeps now since I started entering sweeps back in 2006...that probably has a lot to do with it also.

I've won all my prizes using roboform...unless the rules state no form fillers, I don't think they really care about that.

VERY simple way to make sure you are not filling out hidden fields on entry forms...manually enter the data the first time you visit the website, then save the pass card. Subsequent visits fill the form from your passcard. They can no longer detect roboform through hidden fields. They might have complicated scripts that detect the software...but probably not. If you think they are using scripts to detect software, they are also probably monitoring for internet history to see what sites you are coming from. Then also for IP address. Then again also for software versions on browsers/operating system. The more data they grab the more security they have for their contest. After a while you realize they could DQ you and you would never know for any of the things mentioned above. Best bet is not to worry about it. Leave then to police it themselves and don't look back.

I always use Robo and have won several HOF-level prizes. I won $1000 in gift cards earlier this year and it was a form with a passcard that I usually did with "fill and submit."

Same here, including 3 trip wins, and many, many others (including a $2K gift card win). I know of the controversy surrounding RoboForm, but I believe it is simply considered a form-filler and is not against the rules of the vast majority of sweepstakes.

Anything I ever won, I won using Roboform, or auto fill from Chrome. The only time I don't use a form filler is when I can't because the form won't let me.

I've won at least 4 trips and a large amount of cash using roboform. Of course now days the big wins are few and far between but I've always used roboform and have won quite a lot of things over the years that I've been sweeping
