I’m doing sweeps by the number of winners this week, you decide where you want to stop on the list. All of them take 1 or 2 minutes each to enter if you follow my tips. An exception is the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter puzzle, so I’ve listed it last.

A Big Winner
Guess what Renee won? Batman: The Dark Knight film cell. ARV: $85.75 Wow! She was one of 100 lucky instant winners of this prize! Congratulations, Renee! Before I know it, one of my readers will be the grand prize winner on one of the sweeps!

How do I remember to enter my daily sweeps?
Michelle sent me this question:
“I have never been a fan of “sweepstakes” until reading about some of the prizes you’ve won. My question is, specifically about the instant win / one a day entries…how do you keep track of them and “remember” to visit again the next day? I find myself entering once, and then forgetting to enter every day after that.” -Michelle

Here’s my response:
Guess what? I’m with you on not being a fan of sweepstakes either – I felt they were too time consuming to enter and very disappointing to feel like I almost never won. But now I’ve found the more rewarding sweeps and instant wins – smaller prizes that are more numerous means it’s easier to win – lots are daily entries and it is a little harder to remember to enter these.

I have a calendar by my computer that is only for Sweepstakes. I check off each day after I’ve entered my sweeps. I enter all of my daily sweeps at one time during the day. I use my own blog to help me. I click on “Sweeps” in the menu bar, and then I go down the list. The first posts I see are any new sweeps that have recently been added. I stop after I get to my weekly Sweeps 4 Mom list that I post each Saturday.

One thing to remember is that if you aren’t having fun entering the daily sweeps – then stop doing it! I want you to spend your time wisely! And to tell you the truth, sometimes I miss a day of entering because the day just gets away from me – but that’s ok! Tomorrow I can try to win again!

What did you win this week? Are you playing the sweeps with me? Please leave a comment!

I won a free bag of subway chips- yummy! Will go this week to redeem as ‘offer’ expires July 3rd. Of course, I’ll buy a sub while I’m there, but healthy and worth it anyways. Thanks Heather!

I created a folder within my bookmarks menu on my browser called “sweepstakes.” Then I just go through each day and enter the sweeps that I’ve saved in the list.The I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter One is time-consuming, but I really like jigsaw puzzles and haven’t done any “real” ones beyond the preschool level for a while now, so I find it fun and relaxing. If I ever win something from that one, it will be a bonus!

How to remember? I like the calendar idea except that I do mine on my Yahoo mail calendar. I also send myself an email that reoccurs daily. I do that for a lot of things though. I am trying to be more organized using my computer rather than a printed calendar, post it notes etc. I’ve linked to this post for my readers. Thanks for the info!Ginger

I keep a list on my blog of all the daily contests I know of, sorted by when they end. That way I can just go down the list each day, and if I don’t have time to do them all (which I rarely do anymore), I can at least enter the ones that end soonest.I’m not sure if you’ve mentioned this before, but there are applications that auto-fill forms for you (such as Fireform, if you’re using Firefox), which makes it so much easier and less time consuming to enter a ton of contests. I tend to skip any contest that uses a flash-based form that I can’t autofill.Hm.. I don’t think I’ve actively won anything this week, but I did receive a pack of Crest Whitening strips that I won previously, and Dove sent me some stuff simply for entering a contest (a *really* nice totebag containing full-sized shampoo, conditioner and lotion, and a tshirt that unfortunately is too big for me).

I won 3-4 bags of chips on the Subway one, plus a free movie ticket. Just took a few days of trying! Haven’t had any luck with anything else.
