Sweeps Success Story: Freebies 4 Mom Reader Wins $500 Cash

by Freebies4Mom on August 19, 2010 2:34 pm

I like it when my readers don’t take my advice, like Kelly who used the  Huggies Enjoy the Ride Rewards Codes I posted to win $500 cash instead of the small prizes I recommend (just because the small prizes are easier to win).  Huggies has a “Cash Giveaway” under the “Sweeps” tab that you can enter for 1 point, and the current sweeps from May 1 to August 31 has a total of 40 winners of $500.  The funny thing about many of the Huggies sweepstakes is that if you win, you don’t find out until the prize arrives at your doorstep – and hopefully the mailman delivers that prize to the right doorstep…

Here is Kelly’s “Sweeps Success Story”:

“Sometimes the nicest things come in small packages – or is it envelopes?

After giving birth to our beautiful daughter this past fall, money was tight.  And I mean tight.  My husband’s company had declared bankruptcy and laid everyone off, I had been on unpaid maternity leave for several weeks and we were scraping pennies.  And then I got a phone call from a realtor across town who had gotten my mail somehow.  In it was a certified letter from Huggies Enjoy the Ride Sweepstakes.  I won $500 in cash! I had been entering the free codes Heather listed through Freebies4  Mom and also from a few packs of diapers I purchased ahead of time for my daughter.

We are unlisted in the phone book because of my profession and apparently the postal service kept delivering that letter to the realtor (despite the fact that my name and address were correct on the front and his name and company were not there).  So he “Googled” my name and contacted me through my church!  Huggies doesn’t contact their big winners and I had no idea I was getting a check!

Despite the strange circumstances, we were ecstatic to receive the money, which we gratefully put towards our hospital co-pay and other necessities.  We owe a big thank you to that realtor and ultimately to Heather who always keeps us up-to-date on great freebies, sweeps and moneysaving tips!”  -Kelly

What a great surprise, but kind of irresponsible on Huggies’ part; not knowing the envelope’s coming means you’re not looking for it, thus you never know if you should have gotten it if someone else gets it. But anyways.
I love the sweeps you post! I actually won a $500 Petsmart GC plus 2 vouches for Iams dog food off a sweeps as a Grand prize winner, and I just found out I won a grand prize in the Milano Share Your Moment sweeps, which is a bushel (24 bags, lol) of strawberry milano cookies. I’m ecstatic!

In the spring, I got a similar certified letter that I had to pick up at the post office. I was actually on my way to buy diapers and decided to pick up this letter from the post office first. I opened it up and found a stack of coupons for free diapers from Huggies. I was too excited to even go and get the diapers, first I had to go and tell someone what I had gotten! It was an awesome suprise!

What an encouraging story, Kelly! Thanks for sharing, and yes, it’s quite exciting to see that some folks still have good ethics and live with an honest lifestyle…and go to odds to find an owner across town! 🙂 Thanks, too, for sharing this with us, Heather!

I love to hear stories like this. It makes you realize that there really are still a lot of good people in the world. Congratulations on a fantastic win (and a great story to go along with it)!

I won a $500 Kohl’s gift card from Huggies last summer and was stunned when I opened the envelope.
