Sweeties Sweepers Success Stories

Title Abbreviations Explained Here

While I love to win prizes for myself and my family, I also take great joy in seeing other people win. I have always been this way since I started the hobby. Every person I have ever come in contact with hears about my sweeping stories and I am always trying to convert them to become a Sweeper. You would think I would just keep it to myself but I can’t. I have a need to help other people in some way and I guess this is my lot in life. And, by sharing it has never hurt my chances of winning. I win as much today as I did when I started.

I think it was something my parents instilled in me. My Daddy would help anyone out he met and since he was great at fixing electronics he would go to someone’s home, for free, and fix their TV set. My mother would visit people in old folks homes or bring dinners to neighbors in need. I would always tag along.

From tiny moments like these we learn as children what we become as adults. My gift to the world is the gift of knowledge. When my children were growing up I would teach them every craft under the sun. Then I taught (for 7 years) senior citizens how to quilt. Once I learned how to use a computer I taught that and then went on to teach web design. Now I teach how to win through sweepstakes. Who knows what I will teach next.

No matter what you are given you have a chance to give back to someone. It might not be in the form of money but we all have something we can teach someone else. Why not pass on the hobby of sweeping to someone who could use a boost.

On to the fabulous prizes and stories readers have shared with me over the last few month or so. Have you won something you want to share? Just leave your comment at the bottom of the post.

From Gail:

I wanted to tell you about my win!  I’ve won a bunch of smaller things before but this is the first thing that was this big!  I learned how to enter sweepstakes from your website and you’ve been excellent at keeping me motivated!  Thank you for that!

Here’s what I got in the email: You’ve won $500 Gift Card* by playing the It’s a Spring Thing Instant Win Game.

From Jennifer:

I love going to your site since it keeps me inspired to keep entering sweepstakes.  I’ve been a believer since I won my first big prize back in 2006.  This time, I won 2 KitchenAid stand mixers from Hershey’s.  One is going to be for me, and my best friend who notarized the paperwork is getting the other.  I love to joke that this is her highest paid notary job.

Either way, I am so excited to get these in the mail, and I plan to keep using your site to win more stuff.  Thanks for what you do.

From Erica: Big Win! #2 this year

I’ve only been “sweeping hard” the past month and it’s already paid off TWICE! Earlier last month I won a 50″ Plasma TV from Landau Uniforms (2nd Place) and today I won a vacation to Legoland from a local radio station! The vacation package is valued at $875 and includes money to spend in the park and on gas (it’s just a few hours away!). Over the past month I’ve also won a $25 giftcard to my grocery store, $10 giftcard to Walgreens, $50+ to Amazon.com, countless free music downloads, free product coupons, and other random stuff.

I’m so excited and totally hooked on sweeping!

From Amy:

I just got notified this week that I am a potential grand prize winner in the Kool Aid Facebook sweeps! I was literally shaking when I read the letter. My husband is already trying to figure out how we are going to rearrange the living room to accomodate the 46″ tv, blu ray player and home theater system.  I have been sweeping for less than a year, and this is my biggest win by far!  Thank you, Sweetie, for all you do!

From Malea:

I just wanted to let you know I won my first contest, I have been with you since January, and I won from Just My Size clothes threw Diva Venus..I got three outfits from JMS two pairs of Capri’s  and a pair of jeans and three beautiful tops!! Thanks so much for showing how to do all this!

This will definitely take care of at least one trip. I won from this website called Steamykitchen.com! The crazy thing is the notification went to spam so it’s a good thing I check my spam box at least once a day. Oh and I also won a $25 Visa gift card from American Greetings Instant Win game!

From Jill: 3 instant wins in 30 minutes!

Wow! maybe I should buy a lottery ticket for tonight! {{wink}} I won a year’s worth of Powerade ($250) in the Coke sweeps, a 36 pack of K-cups in the brew sweeps ($45) (I LOVE my Keurig!!) and a $5 Amazon gift code in the Disney/Pixar cars sweeps!

From Susan: My First Win!!

Last night I got my very first sweeping win…..it was on the Bissell Instant win Facebook game…I won a Bissell SpotBot Pet Deep Cleaner!!!!! Today…won a Tassimo Brewpot & cookies from blog giveaways!!!

From members of Sweeties Secret Sweeps site:


From Gloria in Georgia

Thanks so much for all the posts. I just got my affie Saturday that I won one of the 1st place prizes. $100.00 Food Lion gift card….groceries are always welcome 🙂 Just wanted to make sure that all the posters know how very much they are appreciated

Thanks again and Thanks Sweetie for a much more than worth the cost site.

Kim in Minnesota: 1st Secret Site win!!!

Won the first pitch at the IA Cubs game for my son and 4 box seats! Yahoo…so excited to watch him on the live screen in the arena!!!

From Mike in Ohio: Huge Secret Win

I just got a call that I was selected as the grand prize winner! I’ll be getting a new 2010 Polaris ATV worth $9300! The sweeps administrator is putting together the email packet for me, and wanted to confirm my email address for delivery of the information packet! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Update: Great service from the sweeps administrator. I received a reply this morning regardless. There is no cash option available but I actually get a Polaris 2010 Sportsman 850 Touring, which has an MSRP of $10,999

It’s because of SSS I entered the sweep. Without the Secret site I wouldn’t have won the ATV. My membership has paid for itself many times over.

Mike wins an ATV

From Kina: My 1st Secret Site Win! Yay!

I am very excited to report my 1st Secret Site win! I won $200 (two $100 gift cards) to a local grocery store!!! I didn’t know I won. They just showed up in my mail today! I’m ecstatic!!! BTW, I started sweeping in January and joined the secret site in February! =)

From Susan B: $6000 AMEX card !!!

I am still shaking Sweetie from my amazing win I was on a 3 month dry spell and about to give up on sweeping when I received a phone call last week from Matchpoint Marketing informing me I was one of the grand prize winners and the grand prize was $6,000 worth of kitchen appliances but instead they are going to give it to me as a $6,000 AMEX gift card. I can’t believe it i should be receiving it this week! Also I won one of the Blu Ray DVD players in Koolaid sweeps.

Wat a week! I will never think of giving up sweeping again!

From Sandy:

So excited!!! Just got the notification that I am a grand prize winner of $1200. (I’ll edit to add the company once they announce) This has been an amazing run!!! That makes over $3500 in wins in the last 6 weeks, $2700 of which was all cash!!!! AAGGGHHHHHH!!!!!

My husband was grinning ear-to-ear tonight!!!

We won two closet organizers earlier and a $90 FTD.com gift certificate and I was able to send my mom a huge bouquet of flowers and one of the organizers ($420 value!!) She got the flowers today and will receive the closet organizer next week (both are surprises!!) I am so happy to be able to share winnings with friends and family. Our family of six would never be able to give out such awesome gifts without this hobby, so I’m one grateful girl tonight!

Indianapolis 500 Sweepstakes Winners:

There were 6 of these prize given away and 5 Secret members won them. Pretty good odds I’d say.

Tiffany, Nicole, Mike, Paul (all from Ohio) and Kristine (Michigan)

Grandstand tickets for winner and one (1) adult guest to attend the 2011 Indianapolis 500 on or about 05/30/11. ARV: $170.00.

From Maralana: Holy Cow!

I just got a phone call that I was “a potential winner” of a 50″ Plasma TV! The lady said she just needed to verify some of my info since I had entered by text and that they would send out the paperwork for me to return within a week.

This was the sweeps I won 😀 I asked her what “I might have won” and she said after they send my info to the sponsor I will have won a 50″ Plasma TV!

Woot!!!! This is my biggest win to date! I told dh I would reserve most my excitement until the delivery man comes with it and I see it really real!

From Michelle in Ohio: Grand Prize Winner From SS Site!!

I got a call today I’m the Grand Prize Winner from a sweepstakes on this site!! I get 2 tickets to every concert at Blossom Music Center sponsored by Live Nation this summer!! I am so grateful to Sweetie for running this site!! (over $1,000.00 value)! Thanks!!

From Melissa: First win

This is my first win and I just told someone today that I think my first win would come from the SS. Here is what I won!!

You have won a prize that includes general admission tickets for winner and three adult guest to attend the 2011 Music & Arts Festival. Prize also includes one $500.00 pre-paid gift card, access for winner and three adult guests into the Miller Lite VIP area at the festival, one Miller Lite tent, one Miller Lite rolling cooler with MP3 dock and four Miller Lite neoprene sleeves.

My hubby and I haven’t ever taken a vacation and jokingly I said that if I could win a trip we would go. We are so excited!!! Thanks to the Sweeties Team for all your hard work!!! BTW do not know exact date I joined but I think that I have been a member for less than 2 months.

From April: My First Mail-in Sweepstakes Win

I received a call yesterday saying that I was the Grand Prize winner in the Mail-in Sweepstakes. It includes: a 4-day/3-night Premier Global Sports Experience Package for winner and one (1) adult guest to Louisville, KY on or about 05/03/12 – 05/06/12, including standard hotel accommodations (one room/double occupancy), reserved seats for the races on 05/04/12 and 05/05/12, dinner at hotel on 05/05/12 and ground transportation to and from the races.

From April (same as above): On a roll, 2 trips in 1 week

I got home yesterday after a long day. I went to the Chicagoland Speedway with my husband so he could participate in the driving school. I was so tired…but, I got the mail and was certainly woken up.

This is the first time, I’ve received a BIG win in the mail.

I received a letter stating I was a Grand Prize winner. I have won a 3 day, 2 night trip for 2 to Boston, MA and the opportunity to be a Samuel Adams Brewer for the day. We will spend the day brewing a batch of Samuel Adams beer with a brewer at the brewery in Boston, MA. I will assist the brewer in all phases of the brewing process and also receive a private behind the scenes tour of the brewery. Trip consists of round trip airfare and hotel.

This is just so cool, I can’t wait until the time arrives for me to take a trip that I’ve won.

I am so stoked, this is 2 trips I’ve won now but haven’t taken either one yet. This is great for my husband as he has never traveled with me and is looking forward to it.
