Win More By Entering Local Sweepstakes for Your State!

Want to win more cash and prizes? Why yes, thank you. Don’t we all? Your best chance of winning a prize outside of entering national instant win games or sweepstakes with thousands of prizes is to enter local, more focused sweepstakes. We call them restricted sweeps because they are only for certain people to enter. Usually you have to live in that state to enter. Entering local sweepstakes will cut down on the competition because less people will enter if the sweepstakes is restricted to a certain state or even a group of states.

How to Find Local Sweepstakes

how to find local sweepstakes for your stateYou can spend all day searching for local sweepstakes and yes, you can indeed find them on your own without any help but why not go to a website that does all of the work for you?

Sweeties Secret Sweeps is your answer for local sweepstakes. We find them for you and post them on our private site.

Why is the site private? To keep the competition down even further. Even though everyone can find local sweepstakes most people won’t spend the time looking for them because it is a laborious, time consuming task.

Does this site cost? Yes. There is a $25 yearly fee to join. It takes a lot of effort to find local sweepstakes and post them for all 50 states. The fee covers all kinds of things from our hosting to paying the people who do the work for you. Most members say they win their fee back and more within a month. You should definitely win it back over the course of the year.

Think of it this way, some people don’t like to clean house so they pay a housekeeper, some don’t want to find sweeps so they pay someone else to find them for them.

Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that each state will have the same amount of sweepstakes listed. We can never promise any specific amount. Our job is to find what we can for your state, give you resources for you to find them and teach you how to find them on our own.

However, all states are represented and all states are searched for equally to make it fair for everyone.

You also have to remember that you will not find 1,000s of sweepstakes for your state at any one time like you will with national sweepstakes because they are for one or more states. National sweepstakes are a dime a dozen and also much, much harder to win. Enter less with better odds and you will win more prizes. It’s that simple!

Can you guarantee that I will win?

Absolutely not! There is never any guarantee that you will win whether you enter a national sweepstakes or a local sweepstakes for your state.

There are many factors involved in winning.

First: you have to be willing to put in the time and effort to enter. We cannot do the work for you.

Second: it requires patience to win from entering sweepstakes. Maybe your state won’t have so many sweepstakes this week but will have more 2 weeks from now. All it takes is one sweepstakes to become a big winner. You just have to wait for the right sweepstakes to enter that will make you a winner.

Third: to win on a regular basis you have to see this hobby as a long term

Fourth: Quality versus quantity. Like I said, you can enter lots of national sweepstakes but you will have a lot of competition because this is a huge hobby with hundreds of thousands of people entering at any one time. The more locals you can enter the better your chances of winning and you won’t have to enter as many.

It’s about working smarter, not harder!

I just got an affidavit saying that I won the Grand Prize in the Ravenswood Winery Giveaway! I’ve only been sweeping since early this summer and I’ve never won anything “big” before. I can’t believe it! Thank you so much for posting these sweepstakes for us, Sweetie. I was hesitant about spending the money to sign up with this site, but I love the main Sweeties Sweeps site so I decided to give it a try. This is a pretty good return on my $25, I think!


Hi Sweetie,

I can’t believe I have another big win to report, but here it is. Earlier this month I won $1,000 through the Ravenswood Winery sweep on your Secret Sweeps site, and I was notified a week later that I won a KLX140 dirt bike in the Kawasaki/ Monster Energy sweepstakes you posted months ago! The ARV is $3,000! I about fell over. My husband is overjoyed.

I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate all the work you put into this site and your Secret site. Money is tight for us right now and we’re trying to save enough to move back home, so these wins come at the perfect time. I’ve only been playing along since June and had never won anything worth more than $80.

Anyway, thank you so much, and please keep putting the good sweepstakes out there for us! 🙂

Whoohoo danced around the house today. I won a $100.00 gift card for the grocery. It was a surprise in the mail. Already went and stocked up the bare cabinets. Its my second win on the secret site. Thank you Sweetie and all the sweepers.


Yay! I won a 46″ LCD TV and a $750 AMEX gift card. This is my first big win…I’ve been sweeping since August and so far had only won two $25 prizes and a cooler. This was from a Georgia only sweepstakes. I am currently unemployed so this money is a HUGE blessing, and we are going to sell our other TV to put some $ in the bank as well.

I was so excited when the rep called that I had to put the baby in his crib so I wouldn’t drop him, LOL…


Since joining SSS, I have been searching for local sweeps, especially local radio station giveaways. In 3 months I’ve won:

  • $25 Wendy’s gift card
  • $75 Made in Oregon store gift card
  • $50 Mrs. Meyer’s cleaning products gift card
  • I also won a 8GB iPod from Coors Lite Bold & Cold listed on this site.

I am so excited about these prizes! They will be used for Christmas presents and make the holidays a little less stressful!

Thank you Sweetie for all your hard work in finding sweeps. You’ve changed my life!


I have been playing the Ice Mountain® Brand Natural Spring Water Back to School Instant Win daily since September, yesterday I got this message; You’ve won Second Prize in the Ice Mountain® Brand Natural Spring Water Back to School Instant Win Game! Your prize includes: One (1) NAMCO BANDAI Active Life™: Extreme Challenge video game for the Wii™ home video game system, One (1) floor mat video game controller

Once again persistence pays off. Also since the last time I wrote I have also won:

  • Movie tickets from Coke
  • A soy candle from Glade
  • Salad from Dole

I have recently joined Secret Sweeps and it’s a great site, I used money that I have won to pay for it. I have also recommend your site to many friends and told them that if they win anything they should join the Secret site. It is worth the money.

Thanks again for the help,



There are no refunds given and the fee is only $25 for an entire year, the cost of one dinner out or a pair of cheap shoes. You will most likely win enough prizes and more to pay this back over the course of the year but this is never guaranteed. Many readers have won thousands of dollars in prizes so the small registration fee is definitely worth it for what you get back.

New This Week:


  1. Is Missouri a good state for secret sweeps?

  2. I think the paid SSS is fabulous and I understand how running a site can be expensive. I’m hoping I start winning some of the smaller giveaways so I will have the extra to pay for a membership! 🙂 I just started sweeping and haven’t won anything yet…but it’s only been about a money…..we shall see what happens and I hope to join SSS in the future…..and crossing my fingers that New Mexico has a good number of restricted. 🙂

  3. Sweetie,
    I have not been on SSS in a very long time and can not remember my password. I no longer use the original email I signed up with, because it got hacked and my whole address book was getting spammed. Come to think of it my subscription might even be expired. Can you let me know how I might be able to retrieve my password?

  4. just joined sss. however i wanted to know how to find just sweepstakes for missouri? do i have to search for it? i cant figure it out

  5. Nevermind, I figured it out. I’m loving the SSS

  6. Hi! I just paid to join yesterday. Do you get an email saying how to sign in?

  7. Anyone else have a problem with the secret sweeps site? I log in and every time I try to go to another page such as the chat room or whatever, it just takes me back to the login page over and over. When I click login again, it says “hello Alicia” at the top so I know I’m logged in. This was a waste of $25.00 if it’s not even gonna work.

  8. Just wondering how Virginia ranks as to sweepstakes availability

    • Virginia is a good state and since I have two children living there and I grew up there for 21 years I tend to look for sweeps for VA all of the time 🙂

      • Hi Sweetie,
        I’m in Iowa. Is this a good state for secret sweeps?

        • Iowa does have sweeps. Actually ever state has restricted sweeps and all it takes is one win to earn your fee back. Iowa does not have as many sweeps as some other states but it is included.

  9. Do you see many for Florida? I see a lot that exclude Florida, so just want to make sure.


  10. I’m looking to find the best source for mail-ins/local sweeps. I’m a member of another site but I feel like I’m not getting all that’s available out there.
    I live in Ohio…do you have a lot of sweeps from that area? Just kinda hesitant to sign up if it’s gonna be duplicate information 😀

    • I was kind of curious about this too – I’m from Ohio, and I really do want to sign up for the site, I just want to make sure there are a decent amount listed. Thanks 🙂

  11. Hey , thinking about joining SSS . Is there many sweeps for Alabama?

  12. Do you often get sweeps for SC?

  13. Hi Sweetie,
    I have been enjoying the free site for a while now. I have not won anything from using this site in particular but have won from other blogs. I am thinking about joining your SSS, but I want to know if Idaho has any sweepstakes to enter.

  14. Hi everyone..I just wanted to address all of those out there who really aren’t sure about joining the SSS. I’ve been a member since last October and it is such a wonderful resource. The 25 dollars is nothing compared to all of the information and knowledge that you gain from it. Sweetie Sweeps are the best and she’s on top of her game with all that she does. I started winning on the Huggies Rewards immediately after just finding Sweeties Sweeps on the web last year, and then found out about her SSS. I joined and have been absorbing in all that I can like a sponge. This past month has been “MY” month. My very first big win to a local baseball game (VIP all the way) ARV 1500.00, then I won tickets for my children and I to go see Yo Gabba Gabba (VIP) ARV 500.00, and I just found out that I won tickets for my husband and I to go a Washington Redskins game this Sunday (VIP once again-he nearly crapped his pants when he found out) ARV 1750.00. Now I’m just praying that I can afford to pay the taxes on all these goodies. Now these are just my wins from September 2010. There have been many other small wins that help along the way. And there is NO GUARANTEE that anyone will win anything but the more you know about how to enter the better the chance you will have at winning.

  15. Are there more trips to be won in the Secret Sweeps than in the regular ones? It seems like a lot of the people I’ve read testimonials on have won trips.

    • there are all kinds of sweeps. In general it seems that companies like to giveaway trips but we post whatever we find for all states, not just for trips

  16. I am seriously thinking about joining, but want to know if Missouri has a lot of sweeps or if its even worth it to join from MO..

  17. Hello, Thought I would give SSS a try, and just joined today. I have received the regular Sweeties Sweeps for awhile, and thought I why not give it a whirl. While browsing, I have found that South Dakota does not have a whole lot to offer as far going to the specified state sweeps. Hopefully, I will be able to find other sweeps that are open to all and I become a winner. Can’t wait to post on the winner’s page.

    • Peggy, Unfortunately South Dakota is one of those states with not that many sweeps in the SD folder but make sure you look through the multi-state because SD is usually included with a handful of states in your area. You can also search by typing your full state name to see where else they may be posted on the site

  18. hello i was wondering if Michigan had sweeps thinking of joining Sweeties Secret Sweeps

  19. Hi I will join if you can tell me if there are a lot in Massachusetts? Please let me know as I would take the risk, but a little more info would be appreciated, thank you.

  20. Can you tell me if there are a lot for the state of Pa? I am just wondering if there is a chance with being from Pa. Thanks

  21. Are there a lot of sweeps for Michigan? I see someone else asked but you never answered..Thanks!

  22. I was thinking about joining but I thought sweeps where free? Why charge for them? Their are so many free sites!! Why should I pay for this one?
