Sweepstakes Resolutions

newyearpop

While 2016 was my best sweepstaking year yet, I’m still not sorry it’s over.  During the year I was diagnosed with melanoma, but it was successfully removed.  In fact, tomorrow is my first three month check up since the surgery.  Last year I also submitted a proposal to teach a class on sweepstaking for community education, but it was denied.  So I have some strong resolve for 2017 to accomplish the following:

  • Schedule monthly meetings of the Boise Sweepstakes Club. If you live in Idaho and want to check us out see our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/boisesweepstakesclub
  • Enter even more sweepstakes
  • Reapply to teach my sweepstaking class, and if my proposal is still rejected then hold a free public class at the library
  • Last year I was rattling around some thoughts on writing a sweepstakes memoir. I hope for 2017 that I will finally put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and get it done!

How did 2016 turn out for you?  Do you have any new sweepstakes resolutions for 2017?  Please let me know in the comments.  Hopefully we can help keep each other motivated this year!

Valentine’s Sweepstakes: Looking For Love in All the Free Places

Wouldn’t it be nice to give your sweetheart an epic Valentine’s Day gift?  What if you could do this but not put a dent in your wallet?  Even better, right?  Then be sure to enter the Valentine’s Day Sweepstakes now being offered by many companies, radio stations, and more!

This is an excellent time to check for local giveaways where you have a greater chance of winning.  Local businesses, restaurants, hotels, radio stations, and television stations may be offering the chance to win date nights, gift cards, flowers, candy, gift baskets, and Valentine-themed items.

Here is a national sweepstakes to get you started:

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”

The Gimbal’s Fine Candies 2016 Valentine’s Day Sweepstakes winner will get a custom Valentine’s Day baking set packed with Gimbal’s signature Cherry Lover’s candies.  Plus anyone who enters will receive 10 percent off their next online purchase with Gimbal’s using code VDAY16.  ENTER HERE

Don’t delay in getting entries in for Valentine’s sweepstakes because many of these entry periods will end prior to Valentine’s Day so that you can have the prize in time to celebrate!

One final note is I’m going on vacation next week, and won’t be posting again until I return.  But stay tuned because I have something VERY special coming up for my readers in the next blog post and you won’t want to miss it!

Book Review and Holiday Sweepstakes

Last night I read another book on sweeping called Winning is Not For the Lucky by Tyneisha Fondren .  I think at this point I’ve read almost every book available on Amazon for Kindle about entering sweepstakes.  Most of the books are to help beginners enter into the hobby of sweeping and go through the basics of finding and entering sweepstakes.  So I was pleasantly surprised to find this book was geared toward more seasoned sweepers (although would still be very useful for beginners).

One thing I always want to know is how people find enough sweepstakes to enter in order to do it for so many hours per day.  As it is, I enter nearly 200 per day but only spend 2-3 hours at it.  If I could find more, I would enter more.  So the most useful tidbit I got from this book was how to use social media (which is generally not my strong point) to find even more sweepstakes.

In addition, I think all sweepers at some time or another find themselves frustrated and negative about spending so much time sweeping and then going through a dry spell.  This book makes some very good points about keeping positive and the role positivity has in success.

Have you read any guides to sweeping that you recommend?  If so, please leave me a comment as I would love to know about it.

Now for some holiday fun, here are two sweepstakes I came across that I hope will improve your winter season!

Harry & David’s new social media sweepstakes will award 4 lucky winners a $1000 Harry & David giftcard.  Enter until December 31.
