In the past couple of days I have re-watched some old documentaries about sweepstakes enthusiasts. These include the TLC pilot show High Stakes Sweepers and the Canadian-filmed Winning for a Living. The subjects of these shows range from those who are simply serious hobbyists to those that literally earn their living by sweepstaking. One common theme all the subjects seemed to have was that they were continually receiving prizes!
Now, I enter sweepstakes faithfully a couple hours each day – every day. Yet sometimes days or even weeks will go by without winning high-value packages or letters in my mailbox or e-mail. So, I wondered what would happen if I stepped up my game. What if, like some of the documentary subjects, I entered sweepstakes for 8 hours per day? Would my number of wins go up? Would the quality and value of my wins increase? Will I be able to find enough sweepstakes to enter to fill all those hours?
I am going to take on the challenge for 2 weeks and see what happens. My plan is from May 15 – May 29 I am going to enter sweepstakes for eight hours each day. I am going to keep track of which sweepstakes I enter. Then I am going to wait a month or two to see what and how many prizes roll in from the sweepstakes entered during the experiment time-frame.
Do you have any guesses as to what the experiment results might be?
*For comparison’s sake, from May 1-14 I won 15 small prizes (mostly instant wins) with a value of around $145 total (averaging less than $10 value per prize).
