Winning Sweepstakes Stories from Sweeties Readers

I know you love hearing what other people win. It encourages us and shows that real people do win sweepstakes. Prizes can come in all shapes, sizes, values, and types. Some make us smile while others help to change our everyday lives. Read just some of the many winner stories that I get sent to me and you will see what I mean.

From Jennifer:

This is my first big win from the FedEx College Basketball Championship sweepstakes. Grand Prize – A 65’ HDTV and $900.

My husband and I went on our first vacation in 4 years (Not a sweep win). We were on our way home and to make things cheaper we took a flight that had a three hour lay over. Well during my flight I received the call from FedEx, thank goodness they left a message. I have a Google phone (Sweetie’s suggestion) and I have received some calls on it, all have been sales calls so I really didn’t get my hopes up. They left a complete message stating I was the potential winner and they would be overnighting me an affidavit to sign and mail back.

I was so in shock that I really didn’t listen to a complete message I had to listen to again after about 30 minutes to really understand all the things she said but she never said what I had won. Since I was at an airport and just had my phone I didn’t really have a way to research what the prize was I could only guess. I was going through some of the things it could be; a trip to the Final Four basketball tourney which could be for this year or next, a TV, or cash. The whole time my husband is saying could it be a box of Wheat Thins, I bet it’s a box of Wheat Thins, I told him they didn’t overnight packages for that type of win. I got home about 5 hours later, researched what it was, and I was in Shock. I have won some pretty exciting things but this is definitely by far the best (it was on my Hope to Win List).

Thanks Sweetie for all you do.

From Christie W:

Well if I haven’t said it enough Twitter is amazing and you know why?…….I won a trip for Two to TURKEY (airfare and hotel at a 5 star hotel for 5 days 4 night) All from from one tweet!!!! I almost fell off my chair when I got the tweet that I had a one in four chance being picked, and then when I won I was jumping up and down in my office. So amazing!!! Looks like there are some black out dates, but we can take the trip any time this year. What a great 40th Birthday this year is going to be.

Here’s my win posted:

From Jessica:

Oh.My.Gosh. I’m shaking. I was just informed that I’m the grand prize winner in the “Save the Date for the Royal Wedding” Twitter Sweeps by UK Style/Sears!

Prize includes air, room and $600 spending cash for trip to London for three days. Short, but still worth it. It is for the time of the royal wedding, Apr. 27-30th. (Thank goodness my hubby and I already have passports!) All I had to do was retweet the message once every 24 hours. Looks like I’ll be doing more tweeting contests from now on!

Did I mention that I’m literally shaking.

From Jane:

My BF was just notified that he won the first prize in the “Coke Zero 400 Victory Lane Celebration” Sweepstakes which is two tickets to the Coke Zero 400 in Daytona on July 2, 2011. I don’t really like NASCAR, but he does, and he has wanted tickets to a race for a long time now. He is super happy with the win. I entered for him, so I consider it my win as well.

Ahhh, what to pick! I know it won’t be Tuscon, but between the other two is a tough choice!!

I’ve been kind of down lately b/c I haven’t won anything big in awhile, but I felt like something big was coming!! To anybody out there in a slump, let this be encouragement, don’t be jealous! It really is true that if you stick with it and keep on entering, you’ll win eventually!

We are definitely leaning towards Costa Rica, that is really a once in a lifetime opportunity! I just read the rules more and the ARV is $7000! Wow, definitely the biggest prize I’ve won so far! And my boyfriend is one of 20 semifinalists in a sweeps tomorrow to win an $1800 travel voucher. And I won a pair of movie tickets this week, luckiest week ever!

Thanks to everyone here for all the support and fun environment, I love this hobby!

New This Week:


  1. Jamie Herda says

    Congrats to all of the winners! Lots of trips!!!!

  2. Just wanted to let you know that I asked a friend sometime ago why she took so much pride in what I would call “gambling” and she sat there quiet for a minute thinking, and she replyed “Because it gives me something to look foward to.” and I thought she’s exactly right having some-thing to look forward to can make your life more fun because that’s what life is about, right?

  3. Congratulatons to the winners thats awesome ! I get excited winning a coupon for a free item and its great when you get items in the mail you dont expect like a box of sweettarts from nestle !March has been a slow month for me so I hope others win big !Lastly I agree sweeping always gives me something to look forward to but what I dont understand is why people get so excited about gifts in farmville or pogo that have no value but i suppose as long as its fun for them and makes them happy thats good !Ill stick to sweeping !always pay it forward !sweeties site rocks !

  4. Congratulations to all you winners! Your stories really inspire me to continue plugging along & entering all I can.
