Do You Often Enter Sweepstakes, Contests and Drawings?

I don't do that as a rule.  And I don't pay attention when I see or get ads for things like.  

 

Do you often enter?  Do you win?  Woman Happy

I enter and keep my fingers crossed . I won on QVC UK a pearl necklace on a draw on the presenters blogs a while go .

I do the QVC sweepstakes daily, but have never won anything.

 

Besides that, the only other sweepstakes I do on a regular basis is Publisher's Clearinghouse.  About 20 years ago I won $50!

I once won a complete set of interchangeable knitting needles (worth about $75) in a FB drawing.  The drew a name from those of us who commented on their FB page.

 

I've won door prizes at various functions.

 

As  a rule, I don't enter contests or sweepstakes ... but I do sometimes buy tickets for drawings for some charities.

We went to see a live performance at Jewish Theater Company a week ago. Much to my surprise, a few days later I was notified my name was drawn and I won two free tickets to my choice of any upcoming performance. 

 

But until I win Powerball or Mega Millions, I don't consider myself very lucky.

Never. Most of these are just trying to collect information about you & sell it. Hate sweepstakes, contests etc.

I enter, especially if it is free.  Used to be pretty good at winning, but not lately.  When I was 18, I won a thousand dollar shopping spree at a local department store.

YesWoman Very Happy If you don't enter, you can't win. Over the weekend, I won a Coleman Portable  gas grill. And a tailgate package with two chairs and a table.

 

I also won a door prize at our local consignment shop. They had their Christmas open house Friday and Saturday.

No, but I do enter the QVC Sweepstakes since it's right in front of me when I come to the QVC website.  So far, I haven't even had two of the same blocks come up on the instant winner spin, let alone all three!
