Winners and Sweeties

Sweeties SweetieCheck out this picture of new granddaughter, Paisley (she’s almost 4 weeks old now). She thinks she’s Sweetie too! Okay missy, who told you that you could steal my thunder 🙂 I guess you can say she is the littlest Sweetie of them all.

Thanks to everyone who notified me that I was a winner in the Compusa Mini Notebook Giveaway. Without everyone contacting me I might have missed out. I’m happy to have won but now I think I need stronger reading glasses to see the screen. Those things are tiny. You can still have a chance to win because it is going on until September 30, 2009.

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.

Winners from Sweeties Secret Sweeps site:

I won a Beatles Memorial Plaque. The promotions director said there are only 75 made and it will be engraved with my name. Too funny! Thanks Sweetie!


Thanks to you, I won a $149.00 Visa Gift Card from Hyundai, which came in the mail today! I also received, out of the blue, a $100 Publix gift card from the Publix Go Green for Summer Sweepstakes. And, if that wasn’t enough, I received my coupon for a free bottle of tea from the “How green is your tea? ” Sweeps.

Thanks for sharing and encouraging all of us!


Hi Wendy!

I stumbled across your site at the end of May and started entering a few sweeps. I won some small prizes, so I decided to step it up and see what I could do. I’ve won so much stuff now that it’s almost embarrassing to list it all. I was waiting to email you until I won something really big, and I think this qualifies: I am the grand prize winner in the Best Buy “Chickenfoot MI Flyaway” Sweepstakes and my wife and I will be flying to Universal Studios in Hollywood to see Chickenfoot at the Gibson Ampitheatre with $500 spending cash, 3 nights in a hotel, and a custom Ibanez guitar, shown here: Total ARV $5,250.00.

I am indebted to you for your informative articles, and for turning me on to Sweepstakes Advantage where I enter about 20 sweeps a day. The most consistent wins are the “Sweeties Picks“, no question about it. If someone new wanted to prove that sweeps are winnable, they should consistently enter the sweeps on that list. It’s very possible to win some prizes, small or large, within the first few weeks.

They should realize though that many of the grand prizes in the instant wins won’t be drawn for months (or daily entries, or single entries) so they won’t really know how successful they have been until they have been at it for quite a while. I’m still having a blast with sweeps, win or lose, but this big win really increases the fun factor. The notification phone call was quite a thrill. I hope all your readers get to experience that kind of excitement!


Hi Wendy,

I am happy to write to you about a few more wins. $50.00 from At&t’s Breezin through Summer. My daughter won 2DVD’s from Girls Life Magazine. From Blog contests: Totino’s pizza rolls, Pillsbury toaster strudel,Avery glue Sticks, Avery highlighters, an Emily Osment gift package. I love entering blog contests because not only have I won a lot, but I’m learning about a lot of new and interesting products too.

Thanks for all your help,


Wendy..I totally love your site..I just won the holiday rug from the Shaw co..I am so excited..This is my first big win, other than winning 2yrs of pogo memberships..Have a Blessed Day.


I won the Avondale area rug from the Shaw’s instant win game.

It is my biggest win yet. Thank you for the great work and the best site on the web.


Oh my god- I won! A Kosher Salt Cellar. Wow! This is my 1st win!



Silly, I know, but I am excited cuz I just won my first prize from the Wendy’s NCAA Football Big Score Promotion – a $5 Wendy’s gift card!

I haven’t been a member very long, so I am going to take this as a good omen that your system for winning is something I should stick with. Just this week I was feeling a little doubt set in, but figured I would stick with it for at least six months. It only takes me about an hour or so per day to enter all the sweeps that appeal to me. The first week was the hardest, because I had to read the rules for every contest and quite literally, review all the info on your website including links, etc. I am not very techie, but I’ve managed, using your tips, to set up a fairly good system for myself.

Again, maybe it’s just an omen of bigger things to come! I don’t even eat hamburgers, but I know my teenager will like getting this in her stocking this Christmas!

I see you posted the restricted sweep I sent in too! If I see anything else, I will be happy to pass it on.


Hey Wendy…this is Pilar. How are you?

Did you hear the great news? I won 2nd place on the Carefree Fresh Start Fund sweeps. That’s $5,000 cash and a trip to NYC. I’m ecstatic.

I am positive that the votes from your site helped just as every other vote did but most of the votes came from family, friends, old college schoolmates, ex-work colleagues and many from total strangers. I was invited by a news reporter friend of mine to speak on his local radio broadcast, which is the station’s highest rated and most popular time slot segment and many of his listeners contacted me and the station to help me with the votes. In addition, a local Hispanic TV station heard my story over the radio and contacted me to invite me to a TV talk show. They wanted me to help them with a story they were covering regarding the health insurance crisis in Miami and said that they would put a banner on the screen with the Carefree voting website to help me gain some more votes. After checking and clearing it with the Carefree prize promoters, I went in for the taping of the TV show and was amazed that my story was given over 15-20 minutes of airtime. I later learned that the show was mobbed by callers wanting to give me their support and votes. I received over 100 emails from total strangers wanting to know how they could vote for me. So to answer your question, yes, every single vote, including the ones from your site’s chatters, helped me win second place and I thank you for allowing me to campaign on your site and for opening the doors to this fun world of sweeping!!

Thanks again for all your votes!!


So anyways, I was picked as a top 10 finalist because the judges ranked my essay in the top ten out of the over 1100 essays submitted. Then they opened up the site for the voting phase and the voters picked me in second place. As a top ten finalist, I was in essence already a winner because the rules stated that all the top ten were guaranteed at minimum $1K. Click here: so you can see the top three recipients.

I already mailed back my affidavit and was contacted by the sweepstakes promoter because they are considering shooting some local marketing ads in the top three winner’s hometowns. I am expecting another phone call from them to coordinate all the details of my NYC trip, which should be on or around Oct 17-20. As a second place finalist, I get the $5K (wooohooo!!!), a private consultation with a change expert/motivator, the all-expense paid trip to NYC, and a debit card for food and incidentals. While in NY they are going to shoot pictures and video for their print and TV campaign ads and will also host a celebratory event.

Wendy, you’re the best and your site is my most favorite trusted advisor with regards to the ins and outs of sweeping!! I’m so lucky to have been watching the Tyra Banks Show when I discovered you not too long ago.

Best Regards,

Hi Wendy,

I won the Grand Prize in the Best Buy Back To School Sweepstakes,won an cooler from Budweiser ticket to summer sweepstakes, won two downloads of Rascal Flatts, won some free coffee.

I started Sweeping in Feb, and have not stopped! This is so addicting. Thank you for your tips, and encouragement. This is so cool, and I believe if you think negative you will attract it. Never give up, be patient, and be kind to others. My twin daughters told me that I was crazy, and I was wasting my time, and I said I’m going to win an laptop – and I did with some other things – now they’re entering sweepstakes!

Thank you,
