New This Week:


  1. i cant get text to go thru. pic fails. just tells me “failed mms” then it says “server response error”

    im using Virgin Mobile. saw another sweeper having same problem. been trying for weeks. no help from VM or wrigleys

  2. I took a close up picture of the first image and it worked for me. Thanks sweetie 🙂

  3. Karen Lewis says

    I used the last image of the piece of gum. It went through fine.

  4. The first image worked for me. Verizon. Thank you and good luck!

  5. Becky Kinard says

    I sent the image of the Juicy Fruit gum and it worked for me.

  6. photo #2 worked. Thank you!

  7. pic 1 works for me too!

  8. Laura Harrison says

    Pic worked first day. 2nd day got a text that said already entered. must be a 1 time???

  9. Marilyn H. says

    First image worked for me, using straight talk.

  10. Been over a month, still get “failed MMS” when I try to send the pic. It’s the short code 22639 that’s not accepting it. I can send pics to other numbers fine. Contacted skittles & they haven’t even replied. I’ve sent them several emails over last month as well as contacted virgin mobile. I see others having exact problem with VM but rules clearly state VM is a supported mobile provider.

    I don’t know what to do. Missing out on a great & easy sweepstakes!

  11. I kept getting “not delivered” message. My son showed me that “Enable LTE” had to be on. I had been trying to send it through my Wi-Fi connection. Now I turn on the cellular data and Enable LTE , and it goes through fine. I hope that helps.

  12. The official rules say “take a picture” they DO NOT want stock photos. You must take your own pictures people!

  13. Michelle says

    The rules clearly state to TAKE a photo, otherwise they would say enter a photo or send a photo. Send stock photos if you please. I’m going to do what they are asking.

  14. I won a Second Prize (using a STOCK photo)! Thanks so much for posting, Sweetie! My kids will love this!

  15. Blaire Ruch says

    I won a third prize using a stock photo! Got a text and an email today. Fun!
