Sweeps Success Story: 40+ Freebies 4 Mom Readers Win $250 Cash Winners from Kellogg’s

by Freebies4Mom on October 25, 2010 11:47 am

Did you receive a check this week for $250 from Kellogg’s?  Lots of my readers did because they entered the Kellogg’s School Year’s Resolution Sweepstakes (now closed) when I told them there would be 333 lucky winners of $250 every week from July 6 through September 5.  On one-time entry sweepstakes like this one, the odds are better that you’ll win if you enter when the sweepstakes first start.  The assumption is that every week more and more people learn about it as the word spreads and they get more entries each week.  Here are what my readers are saying about winning this cash prize:

Monica R. said “I even received the check on my birthday and it was a complete surprise and a very Happy Birthday!

Kara T. said “I think I remember filling out the sweepstakes where you had to tell them your school years resolution on your site… if this is for real I won $250!!!

Colleen said “I too received a $250 check in the mail from Kelloggs..  I am thrilled!

Heidi said “It is such a blessing because we are getting ready to take a long driving trip and it will sure help out! I found our about it on Freebies 4 Mom and I have won a few little things in the past but this was awesome!”

Jaclyn said “I also won the Kelloggs Frosted Mini Wheats sweeps! It was such a surprise receiving it today!”

Lynne said A check just appeared via UPS for $250!!!  No advanced notice, just a doorbell and a paper envelope (made me flinch and think maybe someone was playing a Halloween trick)!  I read a few things online and it seems like a lot of people are seeing these…hopefully a lot of Freebies 4 Mom readers!!!

Caroline said “To be honest, I didn’t even remember entering when my husband called to ask me why he had to double sign and show id to Fed Ex in order to receive it.  I made him open it over the phone and he told me we won $250!

Kim said “I came home today opened up my mail and won a sweet $250 from Kellogg’s Back to School sweepstakes that started in July and ended in September. Woo Hoo couldn’t have come at a better time.

Amanda T. said “Monday I received a UPS envelope that had a $250 check from Kellogg’s (I won a grand prize in the Frosted Mini Wheats School Sweep) and on Tuesday I received my bushel of Milano cookies from Pepperidge Farm! I wouldn’t have even known about the sweeps if you hadn’t posted them, so thank you very, very much!

Rebekah said “My husband has been skeptical about me playing the sweeps – but I proved to him today how worthwhile it can be!

Kelly J. said “Thank you SO much for posting all these freebies and sweepstakes.  This will be SO helpful for the upcoming holidays!!!

More readers who won $250: Caren, Beth, Cristai, Stephani, Bernadette G., Carrie G., Brittany A., Amanda P., Jenny, Suzanne, Hollynn K., Karen, Brandi, Alison M. and more!

Even more winners I found out about after posting this: Louise G., Jade, Karen, Heather, Kristi, Shannon V., Jean C., Larsy, Jennifer, Stephanie M., Kylene, Deb, Stephanie, Lynne, Jen B., Michal and more!

Oh what a surprise! I opened my door last Friday to see an envelope was delivered by FED EX. What a sweet treat to open it and have a $250.00 check from Kellogg’s! I bought my son some new shoes and a winter coat.


Melissa October 26, 2010 at 12:06 pm

I won, too! Didn’t even remember entering and thought the envelope probably had coupons or something like that.

What a wonderful surprise to a stressed out day. I couldn’t believe I was a winner in the Kellogg’s Sweepstakes for $250. I have a 10 years anniversary coming up very soon; so, I think I’ll be buying my husband something very nice to celebrate!


Chandra Morse October 26, 2010 at 8:48 am

Add me to your list of winners! I started an e-mail to thank you and got side tracked with the kiddos. I’m so excited! I’m planning to use this to put my daughter in either swim lessons or a science enrichment program that I learned about recently. She will love getting out and going to “school” and her little brother will get some one on one mommy time!


TopazTook October 25, 2010 at 8:39 pm

I won $250, too! Was planning to email you to tell you thanks, but you beat me to it with this post! I didn’t know what the envelope was either, until I opened it..and found a check for $250! Thanks, Heather!!


Holli L. October 25, 2010 at 8:19 pm

I won the $250 too! My husband got the envelope from the UPS man and opened it assuming it was going to be some pictures or something that I had ordered….he stood there SHOCKED while he read it and then handed it to me! Thanks so much for telling me about the sweepstakes!


Erica October 25, 2010 at 4:09 pm

I got a $250 check from Kellogg’s this weekend also! I maybe entered once or twice, barely remember it. Such a great surprise!!!

I also won the $250 from Kelloggs, and was completely surprised! Thanks so much Heather for telling us about great sweeps like this! And I got my Milano cookies the same day, it was great.


Cheyenne October 25, 2010 at 2:50 pm

UPS left a note on my door today! I wonder it I have one coming? That would be such a great surprise!..But I also oredered a book, now I cant wait to see what shows up! Congratulations to those who won!!


Lynne October 25, 2010 at 2:43 pm

I put the check in the bank so fast…it’s great to feel like I was making a bit of income since SAHM life is not financially rewarding! I wanted to win the Milano bushel but maybe cash is better…it doesn’t end up around my middle 🙂 I’m not complaining, and I’ll keep playing your sweepstakes, Heather!


Stephanie October 25, 2010 at 2:24 pm

I won too!


Dianna October 25, 2010 at 2:11 pm

wow, congratulations to all of you! How awesome, I hope that’s me one day:)


Deb October 25, 2010 at 1:52 pm

I also recieved a ck for $250. It came at a time when I was rebuilding a new life for myself and I couldn’t be happier. Thanks for helping me on my new path to success!!!


megs October 25, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Congrats to all the winners:-)


Kylene October 25, 2010 at 1:48 pm

I won the $250 prize for Kellogg’s too! UPS delivered an envelope to my door last week and I had no clue what it might be. I had to look over the paperwork twice to believe what I was seeing. Thank you so much for your awesome posts on freebies, good deals and samples. I love this blog!!


Stephanie M October 25, 2010 at 1:45 pm

I received one of the $250 checks and was so excited, as it couldn’t have come at a better time… thanks so much Freebies 4 Mom!


Jessica Loves to Save Money October 25, 2010 at 1:36 pm

CONGRATS! I always like to hear the sweeps success stories 🙂


Jennifer October 25, 2010 at 1:22 pm

I won too! When my husband opened it and started reading that I’d won a sweepstakes, I thought maybe it was from Huggies as I play and play and play and haven’t won a darn thing. He said it was from Kellogg’s and I couldn’t even remember having entered the contest. Thanks Freebies4Mom!


Larsy October 25, 2010 at 12:26 pm

I won too, it came in the mail. Saved half and spent half.


Jean Cox October 25, 2010 at 12:20 pm

My husband was getting frustrated with how much I was on the computer. He now says (we’ll see how long this lasts) that he wont complain anymore since the Kellogg’s check for $250.00 showed up at our door while I was at work 🙂 Thank you for letting us know of all these great chances!


Shannon V October 25, 2010 at 12:19 pm

I was one of the $250 winners!!! It was such a shock when I opened the envelope and couldn’t have came at a better time!!


Kristi October 25, 2010 at 12:09 pm

Me Too!! I got one and was totally shocked.. What a nice treat 🙂 Will really help out with the extras. I now believe people do win sweepstakes 🙂


Heather October 25, 2010 at 11:58 am

I too won a $250 check from Kelloggs. This past Saturday morning we were watching TV when my husbands uncle showed up (our old landlord) and said he had a delivery. We opened it and to my surprise was the check. It came at the right time for Christmas =)


Karen October 25, 2010 at 11:56 am

I won too!! I was so excited!! Didn’t win as much as Jade here though but happy to have won the $250. 🙂


Jade =) October 25, 2010 at 11:55 am

I got it too! The UPS man pulled up and honked his horn, then about halfway up the driveway he stopped and said “Oh, no… wrong house, sorry” and proceeded over to the neighbors house with the box he had. I had been hoping it was Milano cookies! Then, he knocked on the door again and asked if I would take my neighbor’s package ’cause they weren’t home. But on top of their box was an envelope for me… it was the $250 check from Kelloggs! Quite a surprise!!! The next day the Milano cookies and the bottle of Similac were left on the porch for me… such a great week!


Florence Cervantes October 25, 2010 at 11:55 am

I won in the frito lay sweeeps over the weekend a $50 giftcard for Cabelo Outfitters. I am getting a pair of the sheepskin slippers. I deserve something too…
