    I can’t get the actual entry form to come up

  2. Not I pad friendly

  3. Made the page on my PC and found the next button

  4. Is anyone having any trouble entering this sweepstakes daily?
    Each day I enter a message comes up saying that I can only enter once per day which is what I’ve been doing. I have also waited 24 hours before trying to enter again.

  5. Mindi Eden says:

    Today’s Answer is: Stone Cutter

  6. Karen Mendheim says:

    I tried to enter the sweepstakes Sunday, August 9, 2015 through your link as well as via the website and got the message, “We’re sorry This promotion is no longer available.” both times. Anyone have an idea why it is no longer available?

    I always save a copy of sweepstakes rules on my laptop. I just looked at them and the information on Sweeties Sweeps agrees with the official rules. There are supposed to be 6 entry periods July 26th and ending September 3rd. Am I the only one getting the message that the sweeps has ended?

    • I got the same message at 9:15PM Eastern time today.

    • I got the same message about it being over. I’ve seen this happen when a show is cancelled and there will be no more trivia questions, but as far as I know this show is still going strong!

    • Karen Mendheim says:

      I successfully submitted my entry today. Since so many others said they got the same message I did I assume the site was not functioning properly.

  7. Answer for 8/9-8/15 is that he owned 80 acres in 1881.

  8. Karen Mendheim says:

    I just got the message, “We’re sorry. This promotion is no longer available.” I guess they ended it before schedule.

    • Karen Mendheim says:

      I tried again and the sweepstakes IS AVAILABLE. What’s the deal with that? Did anyone else have trouble on Sunday, August 23rd?

  9. Tonya Atkinson says:

    Answer for week of 8/23 is American Civil War

  10. Today I am getting “Only One Entry Per User is Allowed”.
