Sweeps Success Story: When You Don’t Win the “Mostly” Prize

by Freebies4Mom on June 15, 2011 4:34 pm

Teana thought she won free movie tickets, but instead she won VIP Experience Tickets to Universal Studios Hollywood from the Fast Five sweepstakes

Here is Teana’s “Sweeps Success Story”:

“I wanted to tell you about my recent success story. I know it’s nothing compared to trips and hundreds of dollars, but I’m excited nonetheless! I come to your website every evening and play sweeps…Of course, I doubt that I will ever really win anything other than what amounts to maybe a pack of gum (not that I don’t value that prize either!) But one evening last week, when I played the Fast Five sweeps from Memphis Audio, I saw I was an instant winner!

I thought I was gonna win a couple of tickets to see the movie, which I wouldn’t have minded. Well, I got an email today and I actually won 1 of only 10 VIP passes to Universal Studios Hollywood!! I was ecstatic! It’s value is $250!! I’ve never won anything like this before! I’m using the journey to LA as a postponed 1st anniversary trip with my husband since we didn’t have the funds to do anything on our actual anniversary”

I found this blog last week and started entering the daily sweeps you had listed. One of the first ones I entered was on the NBC site. I actually don’t even know the name of the sweeps. Anyway, I got an email last last week (maybe 2 days after I entered) saying that I had won and to reply with my info. I replied and then tried to find the contest so I could know what I had won. All it said was the contest was over. Today the FedEx guy shows up with a big box. I opened it up and inside was an autographed Jessica Simpson bag and a years worth of Beauty Mint skincare products! I can’t believe I won one of the first sweeps I entered. hahaha So happy I found your blog!

I won a $50 gift certificate to Live Nation from the Coca/Cola Dollar General sweeps.  I also got a coupon for a free Kellogg’s fruit snack when I entered an instant win sweeps by entering a Huggies code on the Huggies Enjoy the Ride site.  I won 40 My Coke Rewards points from the Subway sweeps which was enough to order a free 20 oz. Coke coupon.

At the time I was very new to sweeps. I had got home from school and got on facebook like all my friends do and I had noticed Fox Networks was having a sweepstake on their facebook page called ” House Of Fanitude.” The prizes were: One person would win aWii. One person would win a 32 inch’ flat screen tv. A handful of people would win goodie bags filled with hats/notebooks/shirts. So I was thinking to myself, “I’m not gonna win any of this..” But I entered. A few months passed by and I forgot all about it. Mind you I’m only nineteen, So I was going to school and work. So bout 4-5months passed and I get an surprise e-mail from Fox Networks, telling me I won the grand prize. I scrolled down and it read that I won the Wii! I was so happy I couldn’t believe this, I NEVER win anything especially something this big. In the next few months I received my Wii 🙂 From now on when I enter sweepstakes I never ever doubt myself 🙂

Thanks again for this website!!!!! I wouldn’t have won any of it without this site.  🙂

I found your blog in May and started to playing the  sweeps for about a month. It became to hard for me to sit in my computer chair for any amount of time during the end of my pregnancy so I decided I would need to take a break.  Well a couple of weeks after I had my daughter and on my birthday of all days,  I received a letter in the mail saying I was a grand prize winner in the Walgreens 5 gum sweeps. I couldn’t believe it, I won an Ipad 2.  Since that I am now playing daily again.  I just want to say thanks for posting all of these up here, this is  not something I would have spent money on for myself and I love it.  I was a great birthday present.

You’re welcome – so glad you won an iPad 2 – enjoy your prize!

 A few years ago I saw you on Inside Edition and I have followed your blog ever since. I’m a SAHM w/ 2 kids. I do sweeps because I truly enjoy doing it. I also love freebies who doesn’t. I won many things I can’t even begin to tell you. To name a few Bose wave system, Alienware laptop, irobot, Keurig, Tassimo, Xbox, trips, cash and lots of gift cards. I received an email from the Wendy promo and it said We’re happy to let you know you’re a winner in the Who’s Naturally The Best Promotion! You’ve won a 2012 Ford Focus, which has an approximate retail value of $16,995. Congratulations! My jaw dropped. My biggest win yet. I could not believe I actually won a car. I feel so blessed and happy to have found your blog. Keep on sweeping everyone and remember dreams do come true.

Be prepared for a lot of tax on the car.  It will be reported as MISC Income for this year and the tax on your car might up be up the 1/3 of the value of the car – so if you don’t need the car, you would be better off selling it.

Congratulations! Very cool and exciting! I won a “Jack Sparrow” poster from and was just as ecstatic as her lol It feels good to win!
