It seems to me that even though there are millions entering these sweeps, with them offering monthly prizes besides the extra long time big prize that someone on ST should have won something.  Has anyone ever heard of a winner?  Does anyone know where you can find the winners?

I just wonder if your entry goes straight to trash when you click on "don't want to subscribe" and then every once and a while they send you a subsciption notice anyway as if we are just going to take the subsciption.

Have you tried going to rules, requesting winners list, and following thru to determine the winners?  If you find a sweep that is not playing fair, then check your state rules regarding sweeps.


Now, that noted:  If any of those people are trashing our entries report them.

 Don't you think there should be one winner from here by now?

I don't know of any cheating - I'm just being paranoid I guess.

Thanks for the idea of how to find out.  First I checked the $250,000 and found http://www.winnerslist.hearstmags.com  

Then I checked the $1,000,000 one and surprise suprise..... that sweeps is run by Reader's Digest and you can get a winner's list mailed to you but of course not for another year when it ends.  Strange

I won 3 times from Red Book, it has been awhile since I won, last time was july 2007, which I might add, I never received, but before that I had no problem.  The winners list for that is right there for u to see, for the last 5 years or so. I don't enter as much as I used too.

I know what you mean Hosta, and they go on for YEARS!  I guess I wonder why they aren't on ST if they are so honest????
