  • I used to be addicted to entering sweepstakes and instant wins. The most that I won from a sweepstakes was $500 worth of gift cards to Kohl's. I bought xmas gifts with that money. I also won $200 worth of movie tickets.

  • My dad won a trip to Brazil, skis, tennis rackets, clothes, etc. He entered every contest out there!

    I've won minor stuff likes some books and water bottles.

  • Yes, a lady I worked with at a grocery store one a Powerball jackpot or millions of dollars and she kept working for years after so she didn't get bored. They are very nice people too. Don't live beyond what they did before. I have won minor prizes at church festivals.

  • Yes I have won many, Last month was my biggest winning I won a $1,000 Gift card to Staples
    I don't enter for real big prizes because i can't afford the taxes.
    My sweep staking is like a part time job, You have to be persistence
    Good luck
    You can WIN

  • On another site i am a member at, a man won the HGTV Great Fall Giveaway, $75,000. And this past week 3 people got notifications that they won cars, I entered two of them, and one expired before I started sweeping. I watch to see who is winning and at what sites to see if the sites I enter are mentioned. I am very new at sweeping and have only won a coupon for Little Debbie Cupcakes and a card from TGIFridays... but by the end of the year I have over two hundred that are expiring... so I will wait to see IF I win ANYTHING that is substantial... Whether I do or not, I DO like entering, and know that it would be a very pleasant and unexpected SURPRISE when I win .....

  • I won 2008 Dodge Charger Nascar Pace Car, a trip to Las Vegas, Richard Petty Driving experience there,, last Jan. 2009 and I am an avid sweepstakes person. I enter alot of the one time entry ones and yes, you can win, just don't give up. Everyone I have talked to said they never knew any one who won a car, much less all the other prizes along with it. So, I am proof that it does only take one time to enter and be a winner. Good luck to everyone who was a disbeliever in the sweepstakes hobby.
