I would love to know how many sweeps a day many of the members here
enter. Are they only on this site or through other sites, too?

I
used to enter about 30 a day but have slacked off b/c I wasn't winning
anything, just a few very small. I still do a few big ones a day but am
curious.

How much time do you spend to see a good return in prizes?

Thanks and good luck to all.

Hi,

What is important is for you to enter as many as you are comfortable with. There really is no magic #.

Personally, though, when I'm actively sweeping, that is, not on a "hiatis" as I have been for several months, I typically enter between 200 - 300 dailies on a consistent basis. Then figure in the odd frequency ones and the one timers also.

However, I have heard of some who enter upwards of 600 - 700 per day, but with four kids here and an outside life from the internet, I, myself would find # that hard to attain.  

Do what is right for you. Good luck!

Wow, I would think you'd have to have no job, no kids, and no other life (meaning other activities like sports, socializing, shopping, etc etc) to be able to enter 600-700 per day.  I thought I did alot until I saw that number!

In defense of those who enter possibly 600 sweeps per day..........there are people who are unemployed looking for work as myself who found this site as a great outlet to relieve the stress of a ugly currrent ugly situation and dont have the money to go anywhere else and use the internet to job search as well.  There are also multitudes of handicapped people, wheel chair bound people ,or possibly those who have grown children not near to them  who use gaming as their source of entertainment and socializing especially if they have limited income.  God bless Mr. Sweepy and all at the site who can offer much to many people  and bless all the sweepers themselves for their kindness and encouragement to others.

Probably 200/300 total daily and single entry. Being retired allows me to have more computer seat time than most. In that this part of Georgia doesn't seem to have a Spring or Fall, it's either too hot or too cold to be outdoors. My yard sale days have gone way down since I have found online sweeping, that and I have run out of space for new accumulations. I started by marrying off a daughter, so that I might use her bedroom for toys, filled that, closed in the carport, filled that, built a free standing 2-car garage, filled that, and I'm now filling two prefab storage buildings. But I have done very well with my sweeping, many are Instants, but I've won four trips, 42" TV and lots and lots of lesser prizes.


So it's what you are capable of and comfortable with, all the while being guided by what you want and/or can use.

I enter about 100 to 120 a day..takes about hour and a half if I don't stop and look at comments...Use autofill so it goes quickly...I usually will win a  prize go a few weeks and hit on something.  I have won close to 2000.00 since August of 2006.

 I am new to these sweeps but am optimistic and it is fun to imagine winning and dream? It puts me in a good mood! Thanks everybody for your comments and information. I have never won anything in my life and the lottery is way to much money!

I've been doing about 50 dailies, and have about 50 one timers. I used to do about 100 a day, but I stopped entering the ones that just have too much public exposure-like the bauer sweeps which have the same sweepstakes on 6 different sites and include canada, uk and some are worldwide. Odds are just too high and those are annoying to enter. I used to use 4 sites, now just 2. Now I try to enter the ones with more than 1 prize. I haven't really won much in the past 6 months of sweeping. I just keep on trying as I do see people on here winning and figure my time will come. I hope its soon.

THis is the only site I use.  I enter all the sweeps closing the next day and also closing in one week.  Then I enter all the new sweeps that I'm interested in and qualify for.  Then if I have time I enter some of the sweeps on my lucky list.  Somes days I enter all of the ones on my lucky list but some days just don't have the energy.


 


I spend about an hour or an hour and a half most days.  I try to enter every day.


 


I've won $5500 over the years (I stopped sweeping for a couple of years when I grand-daughter was born and I spent most of my time tending to her).  I just started back in December and have won a few smaller prizes -- tshirts, $200 gift cards, etc...


 


Just enter every day and you'll win some.

I use several sites, although ST is my primary.  On average, I enter between 50-75 per day, spending roughly 1 1/2 hrs, when I enter "in bulk".  I also check back several times per day to see if any new sweeps have been listed and enter those.


I've been actively sweeping for about three years now and have probably won in the neighborhood of $10-15 K, although I'm not in the $10K on this site, since some of my bigger wins have come from other venues.


The best piece of advice I would give anyone starting out is to be consistent.  You can't win if you don't play.  I've been discouraged many times but I still enter every day, religiously, and it surely has paid off for me.


Hang in there and the very best of luck to you going forward.  diane

I use to enter like a hundred a day, mainly daily entry sweepstakes that are quick, like facebook and twitter sweepstakes (i don't really do mail ins unless its a GREAT prize). This would result in a few wins a year, some being small and not always very great. I'm still yet to win something like a TV or big cash prize. 


If you really want to win, just enter sweepstakes that have lots of winners, don't waste your time with sweepstakes that only have a few winners. Maybe enter once, but don't waste your time. Also, make sure you have a form filler like robo form or last pass to speed up the process. If you're really trying to win sweepstakes, you need to be a daily extreme sweeper, but that can take hours of your time.
