Sweeps Success Story: Reader Wins 2 iPod Nanos

by Freebies4Mom on October 13, 2010 5:00 pm

Kara was a bit discouraged playing the daily Sweeps 4 Mom and was giving up on the sweeps when two iPod Nanos arrived on her doorstep.  She won them from playing the Bic Soleil 100 Days of Sunshine (closed) and didn’t even realize that she won. Now Kara is a highly-motivated sweeper. Don’t give up playing the sweeps if you are having fun, because eventually you will be rewarded!

Here is Kara’s “Sweeps Success Story”:

“This past summer I found out about Freebies 4 Mom. I signed up for many samples, and it’s been like Christmas every day ever since! I entered all the sweepstakes, but didn’t have much luck with them. Feeling a little distraught, I somewhat gave up entering the daily sweepstakes. But this morning I got a plain white box delivered to me. I had no idea what it was. Once I opened it I couldn’t believe my eyes! 2 Ipod Nanos! (Of course- My husband instantly claimed one as his). So now I know not to give up so easily! Thanks Freebies 4 Mom!!!” -Kara

How cool is that?!? Congrats to you!!! I don’t get discouraged, I get down right ANGRY! That’s why I put 3 different sticky notes (which I did get free) One on the bottom and one on each side, each says something different, and I change them often. Just words of encouragement like…Today is YOUR day, or say an ongoing sweep is for ex: an iPod nano, and I REALLY wanted it that sticky would stay up the whole length of the entry dates saying something to the effects like “I am an iPod nano” I know your laughing, but once I cut a picture off the box of Toaster Struedels because my kids go through them soooo fast and taped to the sticky….I WON!!!! A tad crazy? I know, but it makes me feel better and that way it keeps me going because I know one day I WILL hit the JACKPOT!!

Anyways, I played that game every day and did the requirements every week. And then all of the sudden one day and every day after that I tried I would get something like this: “I’m sorry, you are already a winner, you are no longer allowed to participate.”
Well, I never received an e-mail, call, notice – nothing stating I was a winner. I had no idea I won anything or what it was that I won! But I still had the icon on my screen and it was just habit and I still ‘tried ‘ to enter everyday/week, kept getting the same thing. I was hoping they would forget, or at least let me try for the next weeks prize? I couldn’t even get any more little suns!
Anyways…I finally received my prize in the mail!!! Boy was I excited…NOT OMG – Guess what I won?!?

A FREAKING BOX OF BLACK GEL INK PENS!!! Whatever!

I hate using black pens AND I really hate gel pens.

CONGRATS! I just started playing the instant win sweeps and I have a lot of fun doing it too! I haven’t won anything :big: from the sweeps yet- but I have won quite a few blog giveaways as well. I LOVE entering blog giveaways because I feel like I actually have :a chance: to win. I would say overall I have definitely won over $1000 in instant win and blog giveaways over the past 6 months (highest value item I won was the Boon Flair HighChair).

I also surprisingly had 2 iPod nanos show up on my doorstep as well this last week! Congrats to you! I figured in the last year I’ve won about $500 in free stuff!

wow, that’s awesome. It actually gives me more hope in playing the sweeps. I actually got in the mail today the reward certificate for free Huggies training pants, I am currently potty training two kids, and have been playing the Huggies game, I actually used the playing late at night technique and won on my first try.
Thanks for the tip.

Thanks to your site for reminding me to use my Huggies codes, I’ve been playing the enjoy the ride sweepstakes each morning as I feed my 8 month old breakfast. This month alone, I’ve won a $10 Starbucks card, plus Huggies wipes and refills. Then, your site also directed me to a Sear’s Friends and Family sweepstakes where I also won a $20 Sears card. My husband took the $20 Sears card and used it to buy a $25 Applebee’s gift card from our local Sears, so we had a night out for only $5! 🙂

This past Monday night, I won a free movie ticket from MovieFone, then as I was getting ready to go to bed (that same night), I decided to play one more game. I played the My Coke Rewards instant win for a Sears $20 gift card and won! I’ve been playing that game forever and never won anything. So, I agree…if you’re having fun…don’t give up!

I have been entering sweepstakes for about 6 weeks. I finally thought I won a area rug from the Shaw sweepstakes, but apparently I won an entrey in the Grand Prize, I am a little disappointed, but i will keep trying,

I won a free video game (Gran Turismo 5) from the Subway Frenzy game! They were only giving out 7,000. I also won 5 game downloads, a tote bag, and 2 free movie rentals from the same game!
