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!

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

  3. Char W says:

    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 ;)
