*Expired* Win a Shutterfly Photo Book

by Freebies4Mom on March 24, 2008 6:54 am

Quaker is offering the “Book of Life Sweepstakes” as a promotion for Life cereal. You can enter daily until June 30 for a chance to win an 8″x8″ Shutterfly Photo Book, there will be 5,000 winners! I thought this sweepstakes would be worth entering since there are so many winners. I’m also feeling kind of lucky because I won the Philly Free Breakfast Sweepstakes on the very last day they offered it last week, I was one of 6,000 winners. Update: If you win the free Shutterfly Photo Book, you will still need to pay shipping for it. I just redeemed a free photo book offer I received previously, and shipping cost me $7.99. It was still well worth it for me because I make photo books as gifts for upcoming celebrations like Mother’s Day and Father’s Day.

I’m also curious how you, my reader, feels about daily entry sweepstakes? Are they worth your time to enter? Do you have trouble remembering to enter every day? Do you want me to start telling you about a few of the more special daily sweepstakes out there? Please post a comment or send me an email and I’ll take your lead on this new method of getting great freebies.

I won one of the memory books! I am very excited to do this and receive it. It is really great that we don’t even have to pay for shipping. Thank you!!!

I do exactly what Jenmarie does. I find new sweeps to enter at http://www.sweepsadvantage.com. I’ll only enter daily if it’s a prize worth winning (i.e. something I really want, and worth more than $30-$40).

Thanks for sharing, Alicia. It is definitely more exciting when the prize is a big one! But I find it more gratifying to actually win, and to do that you have to enter the sweepstakes with lots of winners and lots of little prizes. I am always interested in winning a free Shutterfly photo book – because that’s the only way I will get one – I can’t justify the full $29.99 + shipping price tag when I could win one for free with a little effort and just pay shipping.

Okay, here’s my thought. Daily entering a sweepstakes is worth it if it’s the HGTV dream home or even the $1000 Old Navy shopping spree, but it’s really hard for me to see the help in it for a photo book. Not that I’m not grateful to know (and going to enter as many times as I can remember), but that’s my take.

I think it would be great to hear about these sweepstakes. They only take a minute or so- I highly recoommend dowloading the google toolbar- they have an autofill option which has greatly simplified my quest for freebies=)

I personally have a hard time remembering, so I’ll sign up for the company’s email reminder, but contests usually don’t provide that.The other options, I do are:1. Drag and drop the page to my desktop, so that I don’t have to dig for it and it’s a reminder to me to open it (provided you don’t have a ton of other stuff on your desktop)2. Set a daily reminder task in Outlook (with the link in it) and have it set to turn off when the contest is over.

I tend to forget about the daily entry ones, even putting them my bookmarks doesn’t help.

I like contests! ;)I ‘favorite’ them in a contest category. I also have a list of contests I enter….with the date it ends. All I do is go down my list and pull up the site from my favs!

I’ll try to create something for the sidebar to serve as a reminder for some of the daily sweeps! Thanks, Evelyn!

Try to keep the reminder on your page for us to enter daily. The link is great too. Thanks.

Thanks for the comment, Jessie! I’ll work on bringing a few of the better sweepstakes to you along with some tips to help you to remember to enter those daiy wons. After winning several different ones, I’ve decided it is worth it to enter a few – but not to go overboard on it!

My memory is rotten for this kind of thing. I enjoy them, but usually only remember them a couple days a week… also, because I live in the boondocks and high-speed internet isn’t even available to us (except through DISH at $160/month… i kid you not), I don’t really like those games that take ages and ages to load the graphics. Those, I don’t really have time for. But, after all that rambling, to answer your question– I think it’d be great to learn about the “good” ones! You do such a great job bringing a wide array of great freebies to us. : )
