Sweeps Success Story: Freebies 4 Mom Reader Wins $30,000 Cash

by Freebies4Mom on December 6, 2010 10:30 am

It happened again – a big prize winner from a sweeps with lots of little prizes.  What would you do if you won a chartered plane trip when you expected to only win a bag of cough drops?  And then what would you do if you were given an option to take that prize in $30,000 cash instead of the actual prize?  This is one of the reasons I share the sweeps for you, to give you a chance to win some really big prizes to make your dreams come true – it happened for Ali. Keep playing Sweeps 4 Mom and maybe it will happen for you too.

Here is Ali’s “Sweeps Success Story”:

“I came across your site over the summer and started playing sweepstakes you posted.  I won a few small prizes (big in my eyes) like $20 at KMart or a free movie ticket from Moviefone.  I would take about 30 minutes at night and go through your list, usually getting “sorry, try again” messages.  Well, all that changed back in October.  I won the first bonus prize in the Halls Pop a Drop sweepstakes. I won the chartered plane vacation. The vacation would have truly been wonderful, but my husband and I decided we should be responsible and opted for the cash payout instead.  I waited to say anything until I actually received the check and deposited it. My check for $30,000 came in the mail Thursday. I am more emotional now, now that it is really happening, than I was when I won because I didn’t believe it.  I have never known anyone who won a large prize like this, nor did our families know of anyone winning.  With my husband’s hospitalization in ’08, our baby being born in ’09, and our baby needing kidney testing this year, we accumulated a large amount of hospital bills and doctors’ bills that we can pay off now. I still keep expecting to wake up from this dream. Thank you for everything you do on this site.  I never would have known about the Halls sweepstakes (or the free UPC codes to use) if it hadn’t been for you.

-Ali

I have won a year of credit monitoring, which I didn’t need to my regret, A bag of Hall’s Drops, a 5$ Wendy’s Gift Card, and I just won 3 free pairs of DearFoam Slippers! Floating on air! Merry Christmas Freebies4mom!

That’s wonderful! Here is my story:
I started playing the sweeps a couple months ago. At first I wasn’t winning anything and when I did it was just small stuff (Xeko plushes, 4 boxes of Toaster Strudel). Then about a week ago I got an email that I almost missed as it went to my junk mail. It was from the USTA (a sweepstakes I found from your link to Sweetie’s sweeps) telling me that I had won 4 junior tennis rackets. I have 3 boys so that’s great!
But the real surprise came 2 days ago when I opened my email to find that I had won a digital camera, a digital frame & photo printer (in the form of a $350 GC) from the Sear’s Wishbook Sweepstakes! Thank you so much for your blog, I wouldn’t have been able to find any of these on my own!

Oh wow. That is so awesome. I am so excited for Ali. I am hoping my big day will come. I love playing sweeps. I did win 7 bags of Halls in the Halls Pop & Drop though. Just in time for the winter. : ) But my most recent bigger win was at Digital Photo Magazine. I entered there Tamron Sweepstakes and won a Tamron SP AF70-300mm Di VC USD lens for my camera. The list price for the lens is around $1,000 but it is selling on Amazon for $450. I am so psyched because I really wanted a news lens.

Oh Ali! God bless and congrats! That is such great news! Now see…I need to see this more often as I have little or no faith in contests as I too am online for….like….EVER filling out online forms and sending in submission forms to enter contests, and I’ve yet to win a free movie, much less a nice chunk of change. I am so proud and happy for you, girlfriend!

Well, my faith isn’t too off as a friend of mine last year won a trip to L.A. for the second “Twilight” premier and met the actors, so I shouldn’t give up….every, right?

Hugs to you all, good luck and God bless, esp. you, Ali and Heather, for such an awesome site!

What a fantastic story. I am so happy for her and her family and it just shows– there are winners! I was one of the $250 winners for the Kellogg’s sweepstakes and my check showed up in the mail one day. I was so surprised. We put it to use and bought a laptop during WalMart’s Electronics sale event, and so I ended up only putting $40 out of pocket toward the new computer for our family thanks to the sweepstakes winnings. Thanks for putting these opportunities out there for us!!
