Cindy: I finally won a trip to a great destination Orlando, Florida. I am the Grand Prize winner of the ParentConnect.com Nickelodeon Gillette Sweepstakes. I can take my grandson too see the Minions and Mickey Mouse. Thanks so much for posting the sweep.

Jennifer: Just wanted to thank you – I won the daily prize of $585 from the Gerber 85th anniversary sweepstakes

Leanne (From the Secret Site): I got a call yesterday that I won a 2013 Ford Escape ARV $30k!!! I am still not confident I’m not having the longest heart attack of all time. Couldn’t sleep all night either! I’ve never had a car before, but we’re thinking if we sell it we can be completely out of debt and own our house outright, what a life changer! I hadn’t won anything for about 2 months and was getting pretty down about it, but my boyfriend kept telling me something big was coming, he was so right! This one was ending Dec 31, so you might still get a prize! Stay positive!

Amy: Thank you for your site! Now that my paperwork is all submitted and straightened out, I can happily announce… I WON A TRIP TO SEA WORLD IN ORLANDO!!! Hotel, air fare, sea world tickets and spending money included! Arv $5,000!

A Secret Site Member: I love your site.  I just started sweeping in May.  I joined your secret site 2 weeks ago.  I’ve already won $400 worth of stuff. My favorite prize so far is the Budlight Monster DNA headphones. Just the night before my husband said he needed a new pair!

Tracy: I just got off of a Skype session with the hosts of Hallmarks Home and Family…and I WON the trip to Punta Cana!!!!!! I am excited beyond words!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much Sweetie for the posts and everything you do!!!

Debra (From the Secret site): I received notification by telephone that I won 2 tickets to Kentucky Oaks and 2 tickets to Kentucky Derby, along with some other things. My husband received notification 10 minutes later that he also won the same package. Woo Hoo!!! Entered through posting on Sweeties Secret Sweeps. Two wins worth $2,300 a piece…I think I recovered my $25.00 investment this year. Thanks to the Gang at Sweeties!

What are some of your favorite prizes

Kim: I should probably say the Fiat 500 I won, but since hubby is actually the one who drives that every day, I think my favorite win is the trip to Orlando I won a few years ago.

Heather: $2500 gift card to Poshtots!- and, funny enough…. an inexpensive but fun and Blingy Vaseline jar haha! We have a trampoline on the way, so that might end up taking the best prize ever spot, but, we’ll have to see when it gets here

It had 2 beach towels shaped liked surf boards that were really cool. And lastly 4 tickets to the Pro Bowl. We had an absolute blast.

More winners stories:

The winner for the Brake For Tetley contest was Valerie Degnan who won for her photo of herself enjoying a traditional silver tea service while on a break from her job as an electrician at Pittsburgh International Airport.

Though I am an artist with a degree in interior design, in our current economy, I make my living as an electrician maintaining the airfield lighting at Pittsburgh International Airport. The night hours and weather can be brutal and the work tends to be mind-numbing; but when I break for a piping hot cup of Tetley tea, I am transported to the English countryside, where I am free to ponder roses and design patterns instead of trucks and lighting reports.

Jaimee: The first is of our (HUGE) completely customized sectional that was delivered from Bassett Furniture.  The second photo is a view from our seats from the Rose Bowl game, just as people were coming into the stadium.  Great seats – all touchdowns were on our end of the field.  All 4 of the Rose Bowl trip winners from this sweep were from SSS, so we got to meet some fellow members.

    I have indeed been lucky!. My favorite win so far: A tie – David Cookie’s Cookie of the Month Club for 1 year – 2 lbs of cookies every month for Dove’s Mens Care and two different sets of tickets to Chicago Bulls games. We were there when the Bulls broke the Heat’s streak and again when the Bulls broke the Knicks streak. Both were from AT&T. The largest: Tickets for 4 to Vegas – a $5,000 package we are scheduled to take in March of 2014. Love Sweeties, both the secret secret (sooooo worth it) and the main site.

    I have never had such a fun, profitable hobby as sweeping. I have won over 25K in prizes. My biggest win so far is a trip for two to Sydney, Australia from Dish network. I am going this fall (spring time there) and I’m so excited. I won another trip of my choice with first class airfare and $1000 cash. I went to Florida for 9 days while there were terrible ice storms here in Oklahoma. What fun I had. I won a Vespa scooter ($3299) from 3M, $2000 cash from GNC, $1080 cash from Sanyo, $1000 Macy’s card, $800 Issac Mizrahi designer accessories, iPad, iPad mini, Google nexus 7 tablet. There are so many other things. Too much to even try to list. Lots and lots of gift cards and prizes in all amounts. From $1 to $300-400.

    I did win tickets to the Samsung 500 at the Texas Motor Speedway. I got two tickets to the Victory Lane Club…a/c seats in the glass enclosure with free food, drinks and pit passes. Those tickets were worth $1000. I also got one of 10 keys..to try to start a $38,000 Camaro. It got down to 3 of us. Key 8, 9, and 10. I had key 9. Key 8 started it! I was sooooooooooooo close. Anyways, me and my son got to watch the race in comfort and had a great experience anyways.

    Maybe some day I can post a car win. 🙂

  5. Crystal Merrill says

    Since I started in November 2012, I have won 3 trips (2 that we are taking), a Wii U, a smartphone, a flat screen tv, and countless small prizes like gift cards, jewelry, household items, and toys! Sweeping is the greatest hobby ever! I thank you Sweetie for all of your help in finding sweepstakes!

  6. hi! congrats on all the wins! I don’t have a lot of time to devote, but was wondering if people that win a lot are entering a lot of email/Facebook accounts to win contests…. I barely have time to do one account so wouldn’t wanna waste my time if the only way to win is with several….any suggestions?

    • It’s actually against the rules to enter yourself under multiple email/FB accounts. I highly would not recommend it.

  7. sheila weisel says

    I enter 30 – 40 sweepstakes and instant win games a day. I am wondering how everyone wins such good prizes. I have won lots of small things but I have never won anything big. Is there a secret that I should know?

  8. cole marie mckinnon says
