Question How To Win Lots of Prizes
I have been entering about 7 hrs a day for over a year and have only won 3 things. How in the world do you win so many good prizes. I enter about 100-125 sweeps a day. Are the Better Homes any good? How about the magazine sweeps that run for about a year?

If it takes you 7 hours to enter 125 contests, perhaps your entry method is outdated/flawed...I can enter 400 contests over 3 hours time using roboform.

1) Magazine contest are generally awful...because A) high entry rate in first place means long odds and B) a lot of them are creative presentation, meaning they don't even award the prizes in the first place since so amny of the prizes are not drawn for.

If you are entering 7 hrs. a day and only enter that small of an amount, something's not right. I enter many more then that in half the amount of time and I win often (sometimes a prize or more a day).



Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

If you're putting that much time into it you should get a premium membership.
You'll have access to more and better sweeps.

I use robo but still can't enter as many as some here.. I can do average of maybe 1 - 2 minutes per sweep depending.

A form filler of some type would surely help you.

I agree, there are more choices for sweeps for premium members.. and time is saved from searching the web for the sweeps. You can always try a 3 month subscription to see the difference.

Time to win, win, win!!

I spend between 5 and 7 hours sweeping most days. That includes going through email, looking for sweeps, lots of facebook and pinterest entering, then dailies, OLS postings, etc. It would be impossible for me without a form filler. And even though I now use sources other than OLS, I depend on my premium membership here to keep me organized and on top of things. If you are going to spend that much time, I would recommend a 3 month membership to see if it helps.

7 hours and only entering 125-150 sweeps a day? I enter about 3 - 3 1/2 hours a day and enter about 1,500 sweepstakes a day. I have 3-4 wins a week. I use to enter 700-800 sweepstakes a day with 1-2 wins a week but purchased some new software at the National Sweepstakes Convention this year and have been able to double the amount of sweepstakes I enter in a day.

wow.. I guess I am a newbie.. I don't get anywhere near that kind of volume in 3 hours. Is it that blog sweeps are just more time consuming?

Yes! Most of the blog sweeps are ridiculously complicated. I tend to avoid them completely unless there is something really enticing.

All of us have bad luck and good luck. The man who persists through the bad luck - who keeps right on going - is the man who is there when the good luck comes - and is ready to receive it-

May I ask what the name of that software is? I Haven't been able to find anything as efficient as Roboform + Firefox "open all in tabs" option in my years of sweeping.

I've found that I win more between October and January than any other time of the year.

Probably because there are more sweeps. I would definitely get a subscription. Almost all my wins come from Premium sweeps. Money is real tight in my household, but this is one expense that pays for itself.

I enter at least 2 hours a day and rarely win a thing- some people are just luckier. I haven't won anything more then trinkets (small gifts/ gift cards, lotions, shirts, samples) in years.... .
