Sweepstakes you like the most


Sweepstakes you will not spend time on

Ones that have multiple steps to enter such as PCH, facebook/twitter/instagram sweepstakes that require you to tag friends

Tips for fellow sweepstakers

Consistency is the key- enter as many times as the contest allows. Set aside a time each day for entering contests. Use multiple sweepstakes sites to find contests to enter. Another tip for fellow sweepers is to set up a separate email account to use just for sweeping

Trip to Alaska

Cruise to Great Lakes
