Entering sweepstakes as a hobby, can be compared to buying lottery tickets. You cannot possibly win if you do not enter. So many companies today are offering their sweepstakes and contests online. Companies such as Ford, Proctor & Gamble, Dole, - Just to name a few.
Have you ever been reading your favorite magazine, and come across a contest to win a big money value prize? Most magazines now have their contests online. I've entered contests for Good Housekeeping, Cosmopolitan, Woman's day, and so many more.
Online contests and sweepstakes is one of my favorite hobbies!
The excitement of having a delivery man drive up and deliver a package (that I didn't have to pay for ) Just tickles me to no end. I LOVE IT!!
I've won DVD's, Books, Makeup, Perfumes, Furniture (a beautiful sofa from maine! recently), Gift cards, a day at the spa ($800 value), clothing and some things I'm forgetting. I have been entering contests & sweepstakes for almost 2 years.
My ever optomistic brother, recently questioned my hobby by asking "and how much time does it take you every day?" My answer is "It depends on how many you want to enter. I spend an hour a day on average." and thats true. Usually I take the early, peaceful morning hour of 7am and enter all the sweeps and contests that strikes my fancy.
Some sweeps are daily entry. I do those first.
Then I browse through my massive amounts of emails, and find the best "One Entry" contests.
I also love the "Instant wins" and do them as I find them, sometimes you can enter more than once a day, sometimes you can ONLY enter once every 24 hours. I've won a lot of free item coupons for various foods, on "IW" games.
One thing is for certain, Before you start entering a lot of sweeps & contests - You NEED to create a new email account, just for this purpose. The reason being, You will start getting a lot of junk mail and emails "reminding" you to enter a daily contest or Instant win game. To me, the junk mail is a small price to pay for winning.
