Wow! There sure are some amazing winner stories this week. I’m really impressed! Readers who found my site 3 to 5 months ago are now starting to reap the rewards of their hard work. As I have always said, how much work are you willing to put into this hobby? That is how much you will get out of it. And, how patient are you? If you are patient and persistent you will eventually win. If your turn hasn’t come it’s on the way so stick with it.
I setup a new Sweepstakes Database where readers can submit sweepstakes. Now you will have lots more sweepstakes to enter and you won’t have to wait for me to post them on this site.
There are lots of winnable instant win games that even new readers are winning. Here are some you should be entering right now and you will find a list of winnable instant win games listed on the right-hand side of the screen. Make sure you read how to get started entering sweepstakes if you don’t know where to go first and then join in so you can send me your wins next week.

If you would like to be included in Sunday’s weekly winner post please email me your prize story. I don’t answer every email but I will definitely post your story. If you have a story of how you are now winning locally from radio stations, grocery stores or something else I’d love to share your story. Entering locally is really the best way to win other than instant win games.
The first two stories are quite amazing. This is not how it works all of the time but it is possible. Jodi won a flat screen TV just the week before her last win.

Hi! This is Shirley, who wrote last month after winning 100,000 Skymiles from Delta. I hesitated writing this (I don’t want to jinx myself), but it has been an incredible month.
I won $100 gift card from Arbor Mist (last month), $25 from the Mars Halloween Million sweepstakes, and unbelievably, TWO trips. One was the Vault contest with a private Montgomery Gentry concert in Atlanta, Georgia in October (won locally on a radio station), and last week, the Dollar General Bonus Prize, which is tickets to Trace Adkins concert in Washington DC (hotel and airfare included) and a $2,000 Visa Gift Card. We leave this Friday (turns out the concert is Toby Keith too, yeah)!
Also last week, we were in a local radio contest which was a key to a vault, and my husband won $500 in groceries (awarded as 2 gift cards to our local Homeland Grocery Store).
Yippee!! Again, I thank you for the encouragement, and sweepers, local contests do win!

I received an email today, Tues. Sept. 8th, from Mark Hollingsworth of LoSasso Advertising stating I was the winner of a Wii. He said that there were over 30,000 entries last week and I was one of the four winners for the week. He wanted to verify I didn’t work for Brunswick and said I would receive my Wii in the next 3-4 weeks. The biggest win I’ve had since joining this site in May. Thank You for all the hard work you do on our behalf.
I just got an email that said I won a $25 gift Certificate from GiftCertificates.com! Wow…I can’t believe I won.

Thank you Sweetie and Josh for all the hard work you do on this site.
Won on this 2 times in Three Days! Thanks Sweetie and Josh! $20 gift cards have paid for my membership and then some.
Just wanted to let you know that we won one of the first prizes. We were notified yesterday.
Thanks for this site sweetie.
I won a $100.00 BonTon shopping spree, this morning, in the Goodwill contest. Thanks for the great site and continued luck to all!!!
I am new to your site. I have been winning prizes since 2002. It started with a trip to NY on a local radio station. I was able to meet comedians and see shows and the contest put me up in the “W” hotel which was awesome. I thought I was so lucky. As the days and years went on, I continued to win things. I am trip number 7. I have gone to the Emmys, the Grammys, I have won a trip to Florida to meet Metallica which is my favorite band. I just got back from Chicago where I won a trip to Lallapalooza for 3 days. I am currently planning a trip that I won at the beginning of the year to NY to see a taping of NFL live.
I have won numerous concert tickets, gift certificates and so many other things. My kids win alot of things as well. My daughter has won cash, gift cards and gadgets from radio Disney as well as airline tickets and an Ipod. I think I have won every Ipod out there except for the Ipod touch which I am currently trying to get my hands on.
Today we had a drawing at work and I was picked for a free vacation day. People always say, you are so lucky but….. I think it is 25% luck, 75% work.
I spend alot of time on contests. My advice to people is “you cant win if you don’t try” and by trying, read the rules, study the contest. If it says you can enter as many times as you want , then do it. Hit it hard.
If you are like me Sweetie, and I think you are, you know in your gut that prize is gonna be yours. What a great feeling. I also am very thankful because I would never have been able to afford to do or have the things I won. Some experiences can only be had by winning. I also tell folks that if I never won anything again as long as I lived, I have no complaints. It has been a wonderful ride. My advice is:
- keep trying
- bookmark those contests
- keep a spreadsheet on when contests start, when they end and the passwords that you use (that can be confusing sometimes ; )
- Don’t get discouraged……you will get it eventually
- Don’t gloat. That can bring on bad karma!
- Enjoy your winnings because you worked hard to get them.
Thank you Sweetie and keep up the good work on the website.
I have been sweeping from your site for about 3 months. I have won the following:
- a $15.00 gift certificate from Monopoly
- coffee sample an slim bottle open from Marlboro
- Vintage sign from Redman
- $100 Best Buy gift certificate from Wonka (on the last day)
- coupon for M&M’s from M&M Millions
- $5 Subway card from Coke
Thank you for all of the hard work.
Hey, thank you so much for all your tips and links!! I have won almost $200 from Coke, 8 free movie tickets and a bunch of free pizzas!!!
But I got an email from Wendy’s about an NCAA game that has no purchase necessary and has a lot of cool prizes.
Congratulations! You have been selected to receive a prize in the Linea Pelle Be a Celebrity Experience, administered by ePrize.
You have been selected as the winner of a Linea Pelle Bracelet!
I came across your website a little over a month ago as I was searching for rewards codes for the Huggies Enjoy the Ride Rewards program. I had already won a $25 gas cash card from Huggies, and I thought that was pretty lucky. But since then, I have entered a lot more of the instant win games that you have posted on your website, and it has been fun to win quite a few prizes! Thank you for doing the research and letting us know about all of the winnable games that are out there! Below are the prizes I have won in the last month:
Sprite Back-to-school Cash = $100 and $25
Kohl’s Giftcard from Huggies = $25
Cash from Huggies = $10
Cash from Honeynut Cheerios $5 X 4 prizes = $20
Amazon.com giftcard from Monopoly = $10
Free Pace salsa
Free package of M&M’s from Wendy’s
Free music download from Huggies
Free music download from Coke
Free package of M&M’s from Mars Halloween Contest
Free Starkist tuna
Free 3-month membership to Pogo from Subway
So, most of my prizes have been small things. But I was quite excited to get $100 from Sprite! And, in total my prizes for the last month equal about $200. Not a ton, but a nice a little bonus! And winning really is quite fun! It’s also fun to see the stories of other winners and realize that all of these contests do have real people that win the prizes.
I found your site in Mid May by searching for sweepstakes and my first night won a $25 edo card from Coke. I didn’t win much after that but kept at knowing it would take time from reading your how to’s.
Won a few more little things in July and then wham! Started to win 2-3 times a day in August, candy, gc’s, $125 from Sprite, 4 Best Buy cards, Mt. Dew hoodie and 8 movie passes. Then on the 21st of August UPS delivered an Ipod Nano that was a 2nd prize in Matador Sweep, apv. $350. I hadn’t received any notification that I had won it just showed up! Awesome!
In September the winning continued 2 Chilis cards, 4 Subway cards and more candy (always good). Last week was the best though. On the 10th I received an email from EarthTV asking for my mailing address. I had won a Casio Digital Camera. I had entered a world wide contest and though I didn’t win the contest, everyone who had entered the contest was entered into a drawing for the camera. They only gave 1 camera away and I won! How awesome is that!
Then about 45 minutes later FedEx showed up and I had won 1 of 25 Grand Prizes of 2 Minnesota Twins tickets and a tailgating BBQ grill from a sweeps on Sweeties Secret Sweeps! The tickets were enclosed and the letter said that the grill should be delivered next week. Since then I’ve won a few more small IWG’s, candy and tuna.
Thank You, Sweetie for all the hard work you do and the Great sites you have. Also, thank you to all the Chatroom Peeps who support, encourage and are very helpful to everyone. Oh and make it very fun to hang out there. It can be very entertaining!! I know very wordy, so shut up already. LOL
Thank You Everyone!
Dear Wendy –
I received my first UPS Sweep delivery on Friday! I won the Wendy’s / Sea World Manta Prize Pack sweepstakes from earlier this summer. It includes 2 tickets to Sea World Orland, 2 Wendy’s GCs and a Manta themed Backpack, Key Fob and Notebook. I’m pretty excited about the Sea World Tickets – I plan to take my 3 year old niece.
Do you have a win to share?
Email me and I will add it to my winners post next week.
