This post gave me a smile.  When we were just starting out, I entered Publisher's Clearing House too many times to count.  It did me in.

No longer.  Congrats to the winners.  They deserve it!

Do you often enter?  Do you win?  Woman Happy


 

 

@Sooner. Yes. I have been entering contests and sweepstakes since 1987...everyday. I spend about three hours  a day, everyday, filling out envelopes for snail mail entries....and also  entering online. It is a full time hobby. And I do spend a fair amount $$ on stamps. 

 

i love it. I have won just about everything you can win over the years...no, not a million dollars....yet!🙂 But , two cars and many many other great things! I do not play the lottery....just enter contests and sweepstakes. 

 

My my most recent great win was a new roof and beautiful new siding for my home. It all just got finished being done last week. It was a national contest that I won by sending pictures and writing a story about my home.

You should never have to pay to enter a contest or sweepstakes. That is against the law. People on FB are getting away with it and shouldn't.

I want to a lot, but if you do, your name is sold around.  Which means tons more spam.

@bluehost

 

I rarely enter contests for the reason you stated.  I was entering the Publisher Clearing House Sweepstakes, but didn't complete the form, because the info requested was really personal.  Seemed they were just gathering info for any entity who paid the price.   They didn't get mine.

Yeah, I got sucked into that awhile back, but surprisingly got a check for $10.00.

 

Haven't noticed an increase in spam, and figure playing the 90 million games they send me daily (I'm retired) just keeps me from ordering from other sites (a little). Woman LOL

Re: Do You Often Enter Sweepstakes, Contests and Drawings?

I too enter sweepstakes and contests as a hobby. I enter each day online. I have a

website I use that I joined about 15 years ago. It stores all the sweepstakes and contests.

 

I have won some really great things.

 

Two of my favorites were a $4000.00 GC to Merry Maids!! And I once won Day 10 of Ellen's 12 days of Christmas. The win included a sleep number bed.
