The best tip I know for sweeping is to get that premium membership and keep entering!

The best tip I can give is have patience and NEVER EXPECT to win. Thinking this hobby is going to supplement your income is a huge let down and will make it become boring and frustrating fast.

( btw, I don't need the lodging, I live 7 miles from the convention site )

Even if you can't do your dailies every day, check the New and Expiring daily as some sweepstakes have a very short entry period.

I just wanted to say how much sweepstakes have positively influenced myself and my family since I started entering a few years ago. We have done many things and won many items and even discovered new products that just would not have been possible without sweeps. I am so grateful to have found something I love to do and has a good impact on my life.

I just wanted to say that even when I haven't had time to do sweeps I always check and enter the expiring ones for the week

My best win of last year was a Wii that I gave away as a Christmas present.

It's now my 7th year here and I would love to go to the convention.
Thanks for the great MOC and the opportunity to meet some of the OLS peeps!

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

Sweeping has allowed me to do some great things that money can't buy. I am a firm believer that life is to be experienced to it's fullest. I have won some great opportunities to participate in activities that either I couldn't have afforded or were only available to "winners".

Three tips:
1. Read the official rules before entering.
2. Enter only for sweepstakes that you want or need the prize (e.g., if you don't need a wheelchair, ADHD or diabetes-related sweepstakes prizes (three past examples of specialized prizes), please leave those prizes for those who do).
3. Don't think that entering sweepstakes will make you rich or substitute for a job. (Of course, if it does, lucky you!)

The best way to win an instant win sweep it to enter it as soon as it is posted in the forums. Don't wait until it is validated. It seems to work for me when I catch them that early.

What a thing to do. I enter enter enter. So what if I don't win everytime, or every 100,000 times. Something deep inside me says my day will come. It is a great thing to do.

I think the best sweepstakes tip I can give is enter for things you really want to win for yourself, I think if you // everybody does that your chances of winning are greater and more people from OLS city will have some fantastic wins to talk about.

Thanks Brent // KB for giving this trip away again and for the site.

I always check the new sweeps daily, then do the expiring ones 1 week ahead in case some sweeps were added that I missed out on.

The best sweeping tip is..... Don't Give up ,someone has to win and if you don't enter you will never know if you could of won. Don't miss that window of opportunity

The only people with whom you should try to get even, are those who have helped you................May Maloo
