Same here
I personally haven't. Are our odds going down? Are there more people dropping out of the workforce to enter sweeps because they aren't getting hired? (Are there more people out there like me? lol)

I too await more replies to this thread

My solution to very dry spells is to enter more. I have taken breaks before, not my choosing, but it does give you a fresh start. I have found that doing some freebies helps too. It gives me practice for the wins, and I do use the free stuff too. I love trying new products.
You might try changing your place that you enter every day, or at least change it up. Try entering at different times too. Good luck!

I got a hat the other day. Other than that, a few instant wins.

I won a $100 Meijer GC today!

Yes, it happens, but it's been a long time coming.

Not me, but
I was doing really good until 2009. And 2010 was terrible, too. I stopped the Premium membership as I had no time after DH was diagnosed w/Alzheimer's. I still enter a few sweeps from time to time but no wins. I don't really expect any!
I keep thinking about going green again, but time is my enemy. I have so little these days.
Hope your luck changes and you win something BIG!

I feel your pain. I have won a hat in the last year. I enter everyday 200-300 sweeps.

I received a winning email on Sunday. I never have gotten a call or email on a sunday. And of course the one Sunday I go out riding with friends, I get a call and email saying I have 3 hours to respond to win a Kindle HD. Well I was on the back of a bike and didn't hear my phone ring and didn't check it till I got home. I missed out on the prize, so bummed

Biggest prize in the past 3 months was a $5 GC for Dollar General.

I've been entering 900 to 1,011 (I counted) sweeps/entries per day, and no big prizes. I even follow Ron Miller's One-Day-Only sweeps strategy to win daily prizes but even that doesn't cut it. It truly is a matter of luck

But you guys are right, just keep entering!

I enter 800- 900 each day.

My best advice is to enter more sweeps and enter every day.

This year I won 14,000 so far.

It really has been much worse in the last 3 years for me. I haven't changed my strategy from my winning days so it's not that. Don't know why...kinda depressing.

So far 2013 is like back in the sweeps hey-days, with lots of wins. It really dipped when the economy was bad but this year has been fantastic.

Didn't win much the first half the year, but won a TV, $500 cash, $500 GC and a bunch of smaller wins starting around July. Probably about $3000 ARV for July-September. Wins the first 6 months were only about $500-600, so things can change pretty quick.

Good luck to those going through a dry spell, hope you win something in time for the holiday.

This has been the worst year I have ever had. I beginning to think I have been black balled or something. I enter all day long since I have been off work this year.

My son started college last month so earlier this year I started entering extra heavy to win him gift cards for food and groceries and stuff he would be able to use because i knew his money would be tight and my money is tight, so its the only way I know how to help him right now. So far, i've had very little luck winning him any gift cards :/ I continue to try tho.
