Sweeps Success Story: Take the Time to Enter

by Freebies4Mom on April 28, 2011 2:14 pm

I took a photo of my dirty water after cleaning my carpet and won up to $158 worth of Bissell Cleaning Formula in the Bissell “Give Me a Dirtly Look” Offer.  I honestly didn’t think I had a chance of being one of the first 100 people to submit a photo because I uploaded my photo 10  days after this offer started. But I was one of the first 100 people to fulfill the requirements and now I’m going to have very clean carpets because I won’t run out of Bissell Cleaning Formula anytime soon. This wasn’t a sweepstakes since the winners weren’t randomly drawn, but it was a high-value freebie offer that required you to do something extra to enter (upload a photo of your dirty water) and the first 100 submissions who followed the guidelines received a one-year supply of the cleaning formula of their choice.

This is a good example of why freebies, contests, and sweepstakes that require something extra to enter are definitely worth entering. Very few people will take the extra time or step to upload a photo, create a short video, or write a simple essay. That means those who do take the extra time are more likely to be rewarded for their effort.

I have yet to find a carpet cleaning machine that cleans as well as a professional steaming carpets. =/

I love my Bissell. I got an email last week too that I won this. I actually almost deleted the email because the title was so strange and I completely forgot I entered. Congrats to you too!

I also have a Bissell carpet steam cleaning machine!! It is awesome the way it cleans!! We have a new pup named Marley. She has been so hard to house train. We keep the Bissell Steam Shampooer ready at all times, you would be amazed how much it has helped with keeping my carpet clean! You can’t even tell anything has ever been on it and the Bissell Pet cleaner is the best at taking out the stains and oders! My husband uses it a lot for me and said “that Bissell Shampooer is worth it’s weight in gold”! Thanks Bissell!!!

Today, after coming home from the grocery store, I found a box on my porch. When I opened it, a letter inside congratulated me for being one of the 100 Grand Prize winners in the Arm and Hammer contest. I had forgotten I had entered. The prizes were baking soda (2 containers), 2 spinbrush toothbrushes, 2 globrush tooth brushes, dryer sheets and 2 refrigerator air filters. The best part: a coupon for one free Arm and Hammer product (which we will use for cat litter) and a coupon for one free Arm and Hammer laundry product. Thanks, Freebies 4 Mom!

When my oldest son was 5 years old (he’s in grad school now), there used to be a USA Network Kids’ Club. They had a Kraft Mac and Cheese contest and you were supposed to write a rap telling why you love Kraft Mac and Cheese. We came up with a funny one, submitted it, and I got a phone call telling us that we had won $500!! And when I re-read the Official Rules, it turns out that it wasn’t a judged contest, but a random drawing one…but I guess that most people must have avoided it. So we were so glad we entered!!

Wow! we definitely take the time to enter including writing essays….our biggest win has been the Decades of a Lifetime Sweepstakes by Maytag. We won an entire kitchen appliance package   every ten years for LIFE! Our first package was delivered and setup by Maytag—we chose the appliances from their website and to top things off they removed the old appliances. Our next huge prize was five years ago we were the Southeast winners of the BEST BUY $5,000 electronics prize…..the general manager met us before the store opened, we took pics and we shopped for what we wanted…..this was truly exciting. The final huge dollar amount was won last year, we won an all-inclusive trip to Mexico….we had never been and last year used the trip to celebrate our anniversary. There is more to come …..I just wonder what is next (HGTV, a house, a car, 100 mill lottery) who knows. I will keep on entering.
