Sweepstakes Info

(1/22/14) I received a call informing me of  probably the biggest win I’ve ever received!!!  I am the GRAND PRIZE winner of the Swarovski Passport to Sparkle Sweepstakes!!!!  I won $1000 worth of Swarovski jewelry AND a 5 day trip for 2 to Rio de Janiero, Brazil!!!  Included in the trip is a jeep tour of the rainforest, $1000 worth of spa services and $1000 spending money!!!!  I’m grinning from ear to ear!!!!!

Yet another Goodreads win!  (7/22/13) In today’s mail, I received “Grocery Makeover – Small Changes For Big Results” by Julie Feldman, MPH, RD.  Goodness knows I can use the reminder about healthy eating.  Her book gives some great facts and doesn’t just talk about which foods we should be eating, but what specific benefits each can provide.  Hooray for Monday wins!!  (It’s a bit of a superstition, if you may, in the sweepstakes community that a Monday win guarantees another win sometime later in the week.  I’m pretty sure it’s always worked for me, even though sometimes the following win is something as small as a candy bar.  So, I’m looking forward to whatever the rest of the week will bring!!)

Sweepstakes Websites

SweepSheet – A fantastic resource with very helpful information and tips for winning!

I Win Contests – I Win Contests website.  Amazing source of information.  The website owner, Tom, offers a well organized site and also offers classes to teach how to submit winning entries on various social media sites.  I haven’t used so many of the options here, but love the ones I have.  There is an awesome sort feature so you can list only the contests and sweepstakes eligible for your state.

Sweepstakes Mania – I haven’t had a chance to really explore this site, but it’s well organized and visually appealing and had a good listing of current sweepstakes.

    Lucky! I just sent Mrs. Atheist this page. It should serve as inspiration or jealousy. I cannot predict anymore. 🙂

      Ha ha! 😃. It takes a bit of effort to be “lucky”, though 😜. It is definitely a fun hobby, though. I love the unexpected surprise aspect the most!

      • Mr. Atheist says:

        I wish I had the patience. I have only won a handful of things in life. Nothing worth mentioning. I won a free ice cream in second grade. I gave it to Tara. That is how you show your love in second grade. You give away your treat. 🙂

What do you think? Thanks for visiting! Have a positive, productive day!
