What are your thoughts on the magazine sweepstakes like Better Homes & Garden, Family Circle, etc.? There are quite a few good ones online but I wondered if they are legit & worth the effort. Has anyone here ever won a magazine sweeps? Thanks,


Maria

Glare


  I would not waste my time with them.  They are very hard to win. So many entries in those.

I'm not a "lucky" person but I have won Better Homes and Gardens, All You, and Instyle.  I wonder about the Martha Stewart and Bob Vila sweeps.  Great prizes but does anyone win them?

This is all new to me and I have been entering Better Homes & Family Circle. I just recently entered 1 All You contest & 1 Bob Vila. I wonder too but I'm optimistic.

I've spent a lot of time and effort entering BHG and others from the Meredith group. Woman's Day too. Just today, I decided to take them off my rotation. It got too fatiguing.  


But I'm glad to hear that some of you have won.  Has anyone won the magazines prizes that pay real money -- $25K, 10K, 5K?

It IS a lot of work. That's why I wondered about these. I enter the big money ones & would LOVE to win.

I've ben sweeping for over 15 years and I've never seen someone post a win for one of the larger dollar amount magizine sweeps.  Other large dollar sweeps yes, but never any of the magazine sweeps. Sure, people post wins from the magazine sweeps, but they're for smaller prizes.  The $5,000, $10,ooo and up magazine sweeps just don't have winning posts, and I have to believe there's a reason for that.
