Why when you havent entered a sweeps for 24 hours  you get a message you have already entered today ?

Generally that's just due to an error in programming on the sweepstakes site. Try again the following day and hopefully it'll be working.

ON the 24 hr sweeps I skip a day.  For some reason their clocks and my clocks do not count 23 hours the same way.

Marli, your response really gave me a chuckle... No reason to fret, just "skip a day"... that's what i do as well...

The rules will tell you what time zone it's based on - usually eastern.  Look  at  your "my sweeps" list carefully and you'll find the date and time you last you last entered.  For me, Mr Sweepys time is 3Hrs. ahead of my time, so I subtract 3Hrs and re-enter then.  For example, if Mr Sweepys time is 11:05Am, then my time to enter is 8:05AM. The 24 Hr. sweeps usually count time down to the minute and second.  If you're close, keep entering till it accepts your entry. 


Each acual entry (not attempt) resets the 24Hr. clock.


Google time of day and you can get the correct US time (the official NIST time) and use it to reset the time on your computer - right click on the time on your computer to adjust the date and time.
