New This Week:


  1. is it only 1 entry or 1 per day?

  2. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    Online it is one entry per person total. By mail it is unlimited and it does not give a daily limit.

  3. Sweetie: Good idea to send 10 entries?

  4. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    Yes, 10 entries is good. I have mine already done. I might send 20 but not sure since the lower prizes aren't worth much.

  5. So can you enter online and by mail both?

  6. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    See rules above:

    Entry Limit: one (1) online entry per person and per email address. If a person submits more than one (1) Online Entry only the 1st entry received will be entered into the drawing. You may enter as often as you wish by mail; limit one (1) entry per outer stamped envelope.

  7. Okay…so the way I understand is that you can enter once online per email. But then the same person can send in as many mail in entries as they want to? I'm kind of new at this so I just wanted to make sure I would not be disqualified for doing both.

  8. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    Yes, that is it exactly – once online and then you can mail in unlimited entries. Good luck!

  9. This may be a dumb question, but mailing in entries is new to me. When they say to provide the required info on a card "with postage affixed", it sounds like they're asking you to send a stamp with the 3" x 5" card. Maybe I'm being too literal? It doesn't make sense that they'd want a stamp included with the card (why not just require a SASE), but it also doesn't make sense that they'd tell you to put a stamp on the emvelope (how would it get mailed without one). I don't want to assume, I just want to do whatever they expect. Thanks much!

  10. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    Yes, too literal. They want to make sure you send your entry in an envelope that has postage on it so they don't receive it with postage due. Write out your information on the 3×5 card and the put it in an envelope.

  11. This might be a stupid question but if a sweepstakes doesn't specify "No PO Boxes" in the rules is it ok to use one for your address?

  12. Wendy (Sweetie) says

    Now I am not sure I understand your question. They mean that you cannot put a PO Box address on your entry. You must put a physical address where you live like a house or apartment.
