This winner’s list has been a month coming. I have been so busy from dealing with my bulging disc issue (still waiting for the neurosurgeon to even call me), having family visiting for the last two weeks, upgrading the Secret site forum and recording instructional videos, launching a new blog, and getting a new bed (to deal with my neck issue and it’s been 30 years since we had a new bed), the winner’s list has been at the bottom of my list.
I have received a lot of stories over the last month since I wrote the last winner’s list so I am only going to put some of them here to give you a good indication of the prizes being won and that yes, “real people do win” from sweepstakes and some are winning daily or even weekly. If you have a winning story and don’t see it featured here just leave it in the comments below or email me and I will include it in the next winner’s list update.
The last time I posted a winner’s list it was the beginning of May. I may only be updating the winners monthly now but if I have time I will post a few featured winner’s stories as they come in throughout the month.
This is a very long post and that is not all of the stories that were sent to me. I had to cut it off at some point. You will want to read through the whole list though because there are some amazing stories.
Congratulations everyone – good job! Aww, my children are growing up!
Need more sweepstakes to enter?
If you are looking for even more sweepstakes to enter visit my Sweepstakes Daily Digest. These are sweepstakes that I do not post on this site because they are not considered as winnable. I just post a summary of the rules and prizes and give you the link to enter, nothing pretty. I also posted sweepstakes on my Facebook Fan page daily that aren’t always posted on either site and readers are posting sweepstakes there for you to enter as well.
On Twitter I post Twitter contests I get from other readers and sometimes I participate in Twitter parties so when you see me join in. I will be posting videos soon on how to enter Twitter contests and participate in Twitter parties to help yo understand it better.
If you don’t know how to enter sweepstakes and win consistently then join my free Sweeping 101 e-Course to learn how. Sweeping 101 members also receive exclusive sweepstakes from time to time that will help to win even more prizes.
Here are some new winners from the Secret site:
Many readers are finding the $25 yearly fee for the secret site is definitely worth the cost and while I can’t promise there will be a plethora (don’t you just love that word) of sweepstakes for your state you should definitely win your subscription fee back and then some. Click here for more details.
I won a 7 night stay in St Maarten at Sonesta Maho Resort. I came from Laura Murphy- I almost deleted it. So be very careful when you go through your email. I could have easily deleted this win it is a $3 K valuie I would never have afforded this, but I DO have to pay airfare and meals. We figured it out and we think is is okay with paying taxes on win.. I think it has been turned down several times, because of this. I am very happy. I love all Sweetie’s sites and appreciate her so much. She looked at it and told me it was a true win, it looked bogus to me. Thanks again!
Both were from the same sweeps.
We received our first certified Letter! We won a Dell mini netbook from A SSS! Thanks Sweetie and Thanks Tesoro!
Congratulations! (I’m mailing my affy today too!)
All of these winners were from the same sweeps.
Well, it took a couple of months, but I finally broke the slump with a flatscreen TV win from Bernie. Thanks for the site, Wendy!
Just received an email that I won one of the TVs. I’m so excited. I am off work on Monday, so I am going to Ocala to pick it up.
I just won the TV, Thanks!!!
Me Too!! Was very surprised!
My husband won one too!!!
Thanks for the post Sweetie, I just won the tv!!
I received an email also that I won the tv! Very excited! Thanks sooo much for posting and Congratulations to all the winners!
I won a TV too!! Picking up tomorrow, does anyone know the brand?
04/13/10 Just picked up my TV from the Marion County Chamber of Commerce. Thanks for submitting and posting this contest. Great TV!
I won two tickets to the screening in Pleasant Hill IA. At the screening we were given a large popcorn and 2 large Dr. Pepper sodas. At the screening they gave out gift bag with a coozie, ink pen, magnet, and two QT free sandwich coupons. I had two tickets for prizes. I won 4 movie tickets, and 4 more QT sandwiches.
I ALSO WON A 700 DOLLAR VALUE BLUE RAY DISC HOME THEATRE SYSTEM! Woo Hoo! Thanks so much! The movie was great also!
I have just won 2 tickets for a prescreening of Shrek Forever After, a local newspaper. I joined SSS on the 5th May and this is my second win. As both wins have been for the prescreening of movies I had been able to receive my prizes quickly. Wishing everyone the best of luck.
All of these were from the same sweepstakes.
I just received my check in the mail. I won $50.00 in their weekly drawing. First win for me over $10.00. Thanks Sweetie, love this site!!!!
I just got a check in the mail April the 6th for $50.00 also. Thanks for including this topic. For those still entering I used the pre-stamped postcards from the post office. Kinda hard to get all that address on the front, but well worth it :). Thank you again for all the work you folks put in to this.
I got my $50 check today!
These winners were from this site
I just received notification that I’ve won $10,000 and tickets to see Gloriana in concert through the Milk Rocks contest (www.milkrocks.com/contests/gloriana-papermate-giveaway). Needless to say, I’m very excited!
Thanks for all you do!
I want to share my story with you about how I truly am winning what I can’t afford. I came across your website last month and since then I have made entering sweepstakes my nightly hobby. It’s fun to play the instant win games – kind of like gambling, but with nothing to lose! Since March I have won a Kikoman silicone basting brush, dentene gum and a $25 Discover card from M&M’s.
I was also impressed by many of your readers who have entered and won local sweepstakes so I found a few in my area and entered them as well. I won a pair of tickets to opening night of a local musical and was thrilled that I can take my Mom for mother’s day. Two days after I received the tickets, the radio station that I won them from called me back to let me know I had won the Grand Prize drawing – A TRIP FOR TWO TO HAWAII!!!! I was speechless. My fun little hobby has started reaping some major rewards all in just two months! Thanks you again for sharing all of your helpful information and success stories! Because of Sweeties Sweeps we’re off to the islands!!
On 4/22/10 I was notified that I am the Grand Prize winner of the San Francisco Ballet Little Mermaid Sweepstakes. It’s a 5-day/4-night trip for 2 to The Banyan Tree Mayakoba Hotel & Resort which includes round trip coach airfare for 2 to Cancun, Mexico, and round trip ground transfer to/from resort and airport. The prize is valued at $5,000.
Wow Wendy, I won TGIF again…can you believe it? What a blessing..I was the weekly winner from the American Idol sweep. I was just trying to win a GC…holy smokes…when the screen popped up that I won! I had to read it a few times to make sure I was reading it right. I just want to thank you for the umpteenth time..what a great day!
Jodi actually won $5,000 in cash and not a trip.
I’m in complete shock, but after a frustrating morning, I opened my email & found a notice from a Sears Chefs Challenge Sweepstakes (in my spam folder) than I was the Grand Prize winner.
I get my choice of one Kenmore Appliance (Refrigerator, Range, Dishwasher, Microwave or Hood) valued at up to $3,800!!!
It was a 2 week long sweep that I didn’t even enter daily. But as several have said if/when you’re meant to win, you will!
Thanks for letting me share!
I had been sweeping for several months and hadn’t won anything so I stopped. Then within two days I had two wins! I was one of the grand prize winners of the 7th Generation Million Baby Crawl sweeps. I won a trip to Washington DC including airfare, hotel, car service. and $500 spending money. The next day a letter came in the mail with a $100 Skymall gift cert from their sweeps. Thanks Sweetie!
I’m so excited – my first Twitter win & my largest cash prize! It couldn’t come at a better time!
I am happy to inform you that you were one of our seven runner-ups! You have won $300 cash.

Hi Wendy. This is Hideki in Minneapolis. I have just posted on your website about this, but thank YOU so much for my win in the Outdoor Channel’s Spring Fever Sweepstakes. We’ve just won an Grand Prize for an Alaskan adventure worth $6,500.
Ever since I discovered your sweeps site, my wife and I have won more than my and her lives combined previously. I know that without your positive encouragement on your website, I would not have bothered with this or any other sweeps. Well, I did bother and am winning, and winning big.
So THANK YOU WENDY!

I just started entering sweeps about the middle of March but I have already had several small wins.

Not bad for about 6 weeks worth of trying. Thanks for all the work that you do, I am so excited to see what will be next.

I entered a video contest with my Shih Tzu, Chloe of her doing a celebration dance for Science Diet Simple Essential Treats. She was a 2nd Prize winner of a $900 Tailgaiting grill.
