I'd love to say that winning is easy, but I think we all know that isn't true. It takes persistence, perseverence and patience and lots of other words that start with "P".
I dedicate at least an hour each day to my hobby, and it shows. A partial list of my winnings so far:
$1500 Gift Certificate to Crate and Barrel
$2500 Gift Certificate to Cooking.com
Several XM radios with subscriptions
Many smaller Gift Cards to Target, Starbucks, Boston Market, Burger King, Nordstrom, Smith and Hawken, and many more
My biggest win was a 2009 Toyota Corolla!!!
I'll try to break it down the best I can - how to enter, where to enter and what tools you can use.
My first tip is www.online-sweepstakes.com
Bookmark it, make it your homepage, and visit it daily!!
I spend the majority of my time on that site. It is free to join, but I highly recommend the Premium Subscription. For just $30 per year, it has more than paid for itself for me, just look at my winnings list. :)
2nd tip is www.roboform.com
With this form filling tool at your fingertips, you can enter in a fraction of the time it takes to type out your name and address - over and over One click and it's all filled out!
I'll have many tips and links to my favorite contests to come.
Enter often, and Work to Win!
