Various Hearst magazines $250,000 sweepstakes
It seems these are offered every year with a sweepstakes for about every particular Hearst magazine. Has anyone from here won one of those?

I think they keep extending the end date another year without awarding the $$ prize.

I really don't think they ever intend to award that money. They're just planning to keep it going forever to get publicity for their website or something.

the contest runs each year for an incredible length of time. it's for all of their magazines so you're competing against 10 times (at least) as many people plus you're only allowed to enter one time in total every day. thanks but no thanks!

Someone here one a lesser prize from one of the creative presentation sweeps last year. I think it was a several hundred dollar prize. I haven't but still enter them.

These are all creative presentation contests...they run probably 30-40 contests with $250,000 grand prize from the same pool--then as a favor to you they run 1,200 or so contests in the same prize pool with thousands of junk prizes like 10 page cookbooks (which as essentially another add for their cooking magazines). This is a total scam in my book. Don't even award the big prizes.
