And the winner is…me! What I’ve won after four years of sweeping

So I was recently convincing my best friend to start entering sweepstakes (a.k.a. sweeping), and she asked me what I had managed to win in my time- so I decided to write about my wins here. Unfortunately I haven’t won anything big like vacations, cars, or giant TV’s- but I have one some pretty neat stuff. So here’s my list of wins, and right down at the bottom of this is a list of the sites that I use to find giveaways/sweeps to enter. Remember, sweeping takes a lot of time and effort 99.99% of the sweeps that I enter I don’t win, but the one’s that I do make it worth it. Anyways, I still have my fingers crossed for that dream Ireland vacation win!

Best Sites for Sweeps:

Online Sweepstakes (OLS)

Sweeties Secret Sweeps– There is a yearly $25 fee to join, but you get access to hard to find sweeps (like local sweeps, which are hard to find and have less entrants which means you have a higher chance of winning). If you decide to sign up please use this link, and type KristaK2 in the comments box when you pay- it’s a referral, and I’d really appreciate it.

Sweeties Sweeps

Twitter- search “giveaway” in the twitter search bar and you’ll get loads of results

Happy Sweeping!

      Thanks- but I’m a lightweight compared to major sweepers out there 🙂 Still hoping for that trip though…

    Ah…lots of interesting things….isn’t it exciting to open an email that says you’ve won something?!!

      I love when that happens! lol! I get the feeling you know what I mean 😉

    That is awesome! You seem to have won a bit. Sometimes I have to decide what to enter because it takes time to enter giveaways… It is exciting. I have won a couple of things, which is cool.

      Lol! It takes me a while to decide too- sometimes I’ll get so caught up with reading bloggers posts, checking out the actual products, and deciding which one’s I really would like a shot at winning – that I’ll only end up entering two for the whole day!

    Awesome! I haven’t won any major sweeps yet, but I did recently win a free bottle of Torani coffee syrup, a prize pack with a book, a can of European hot chocolate and a Starbucks gift card, some shell earrings, a beach towel, a beautiful glass float, and a few other treasures. It is fun to enter, and a great surprise when the prizes come.

      Wow! You’ve got some pretty great wins yourself (totally jealous of that starbucks gc)! It is super fun to enter- and better when you win 😉
