I shared a new sweepstakes with Sweeties Sweeps one day, and the next day she won $5,000 instantly the second day she played it! Of course she is an expert at playing and winning sweepstakes, but I feel like I had a little bit to do with it since I’m the one who first told her that the Burger King BK Big Shots Instant Win sweepstakes existed. Then I heard from Hannah, one of my readers who heard about Sweeties Sweeps through reading Freebies4Mom. Guess what? Hannah won $5,000 also in the same sweepstakes! So there you go, my readers really are lucky! I helped two of my readers each win $5,000.
It’s true! Here’s Wendy’s story about how I helped her find this sweepstakes earlier than she would have otherwise. She goes into more detail about her winning story at Sweeties Sweeps and has a wonderful conclusion about how giving is rewarding.
“Heather sent this sweepstakes to me on March 10 in the evening so I decided to post it the next day on my site, Sweeties Sweeps. When I post a sweeps I always check it out and enter it at least once. I was writing up the rules for my site on one window and entering on the other window. It was around 4:30 am and I couldn’t see straight at that point. I had to blink a couple of times and really think about what was happening because all the screen said was “Congratulations, you are an instant winner“. It didn’t say what I won so I didn’t know. I knew I had won either the $5,000 AMEX card or the $5,000 trip to Florida because they were the only prizes being given away. It took 24 hours before I got the confirmation email that told me I won the $5,000 AMEX card. I just received it today and I’m SO happy.
I wanted to share Hannah’s story with you so we can all congratulate here and with hope it will inspire you! She just started blogging at Frugally Farming Family
“By now everyone has heard of sweepstakes and people winning big. Until recently, I did not believe it would be possible for me to win anything more than a coupon for something free. Little did I know, I was going to win one of the grand prizes in a sweepstakes.
In January a friend of mine was talking about how she went to CVS and spent $0.64 and saved over $200 in one trip! I thought that was amazing. She mentioned a blog which helped her find her deals, so I went home to check out the blog. I had tried couponing before, but it seemed too time consuming as I am a home school mom of six (ages 4 months to 7 years!), and we also have a small farm! The first week I started, it was actually triple coupon week at one of my local grocery stores. Unfortunately, at that time I could not find a blog with deals for that store, so I did the deals myself. I ended up spending less than $45 for well over $300 worth of name brand groceries. Granted, it is not as good as my friend did with her $0.64 trip, but I thought I did well for a beginner.
After that week I was hooked! I started looking for more blogs and more deals. That particular week there was a bloggy giveaway carnival which is how I discovered Freebies4Mom. I started looking at her site and found a post about the”10 Most Winnable Sweeps.” I thought I would try them and see if I could win. At the time I was not consistent in entering. After a few weeks, I finally won an instant win game. The prize was a coupon worth $4 for a free product. A few days after that, Freebies4Mom had a post about how to win sweeps with a link to Sweeties Sweeps. I began looking over her site and reading her tips as well as following her tips for winning.
Until late last week I did not believe it was possible to win a very big prize. On Wednesday of last week, I entered the sweepstakes mentioned on Heather’s and Wendy’s blogs as I have been doing every morning. However, I was only entering the sweepstakes that were listed as “the most winnable” sweepstakes. I decided to look at some of the other sweepstakes. I saw the one for Burger King. I read Sweetie’s post on how to enter and decided to enter. I registered and requested the free entry codes through email. I immediately received the email and entered the first code. Upon pressing enter the screen said I was a winner, and they would contact me within 48 hours to tell me how to claim my prize. I honestly thought I had probably just won a value meal or a Burger King Whopper. The next day, I received an email that I had won a $5000 Value American Express Card with instructions on how to claim my prize. I thought it must be a scheme, and that I would still have to go through a drawing and was only a potential winner. I called my husband and read the email to him. He encouraged me to call the number in the email. I called and left a message, but she returned my call within fifteen minutes. She said I had indeed won, and all I had to do w
as to sign the papers and get a notary signature. She said I could even fax or scan and email the information to her and encouraged me to do whatever was easiest for me to get it in by the deadline. I went Friday morning and had the paper work notarized. I emailed the paperwork on Friday afternoon. On Monday, I received my prize via Fed-Ex!
I am just your every day ordinary person. As I already said, I am a stay at home, homeschooling mother with six children ages 7, 6, 5, 3, 2, and 4 months. We have a small farm where we raise beef and have a vegetable garden. My husband is a Project Manager for a tool and die Company. We are just ordinary people living an ordinary life. God has blessed us. We have also learned winning is possible. Although I have not decided what to spend the money on at this point, we can definitely use the money. Thanks so much Freebies4Mom and Sweeties Sweeps helping others win!” -Hannah
