Which Type of Sweeps have you gotten your best wins from?
My Biggest win was $5,000 from Hot Rod Magazine, I believe it was a one time entry online. Most of my wins seem to come from blogs. I would love to know what types you all find you win more at....Daily, or certain companies? especially those that win trips

One time entries for both skilled contests and random luck of the draw sweepstakes, all on the national (not local) level.

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!

The most prizes from instants some very nice but the largest prizes from one time or dailies, much fewer and farther between though.

#1 Trivia
Gourmet Mag, Epicurious, Conde Nast, EPrize
As times change, I don't think they currently exist. My most expensive win was the trip of a lifetime, just under 10k. in 2004. It was answering food trivia, there were only 2 questions a day but the more you answered, the more entries you had and referrals would get you more entries. The grand prize was a trip to Italy but the daily or instant prize was a bright red Kitchen Aid mixer. My daughter was also playing because I referred her, and we wanted that red mixer. I had read the rules, but forgot them until I won. There were plenty of persons here who were referring a whole lot of people. You had to refer to be entered for the grand prize. I only referred one person, my daughter, and won the grand prize.
#2 Recipe
Newman's Own
I don't remember if there was a limit on the number of ingredients but I knew if I could keep it to 6, I might win. I didn't win first prize but I got a lot of nice stuff. Enough that I had to return an affidavit.
#3 Sports Pick
AT&T Pick the final 2 for College World Series 2007
Really nice win. You had to predict the final 2 while the bracket still contained 16 teams. I did pick the final 2, NO PROBLEM! I love any kind of youth baseball, from LL thru College. I didn't win the grand, but I did get a high value gift card and some really nice brand name swag that I am still packing around.

My largest win was from a weekly that lasted less than 2 weeks short of a year.. and no, I didn't enter every week.. I'm sure even though I tried, I missed it at least a few times.

The 2nd largest was a daily that lasted 3 months. Another I know I didn't enter every day... and when I was notified I won, I was told the exact day and time my winning entry was made!


Neither one comes up as an expired mysweeps ( probably lost them when my subscription ran out or not sure otherwise it's not there ). So I can't say exactly how many entries I made.

My best wins ever were back in the old days when magazine sweeps required mailing in a 3x5 card or clipping out an entry form. When is the last time anyone did that?

America: Love it or give it back.

Yep, and I also won a lot from radio call in. My biggest win was a trip to las vegas 25 yrs ago from a drop in card at a department store.

Best wins: Dailies, by far. Despite what many sweepers think, the odds of winning a daily that you religiously enter everyday are generally better than entering a one time sweep. Ask someone who understands statistics for their perspective. Or, ask someone who wins a lot....

Most wins: Blogs, by far. I love it when people proclaim that they hate blogs....it helps my odds of winning.

The types I get the Best Wins from are..
One entry per person. I win a lot of books because I'm always trying the author sweeps for Amazon gift cards.

Instants. Of my trip wins, 3 were instants, including my biggest prize ever. I've also won tablets, big toys, large (& many small) gift cards.

Back in the day, it was Twitter parties, but the prizes & my patience to sit for an hour has gone down while the number of participants has gone up.
