Share Your Wins for May, 2008!

By June 1, 2008

Follow me on:

May was a good month for me, and for many of my friends in the Sweepstakes Forum! I won prizes including:
  • 400 Microsoft Live Points from 7-11 Slurpee (daily instant) (ARV: $5)
  • National Treasure 2 Commemorative Medallion (daily instant) (ARV: $75)
  • Mini Photo Album from Kodak (daily instant) (ARV: $6.99)
  • $50 cash from Taco Bell/Mountain Dew (daily instant) (ARV: $50)
  • $25 Glass gift certificate from The Maids (daily instant) (ARV: $25)
as well as some little things like a chocolate bar and a music download. How about you guys? Did you receive word of any wins in May? Big or small, I'd love to hear about them! It always makes me feel more motivated to enter when I hear about your wins, and I'm sure many of my other readers feel the same way.

I won a candy bar in May. Considering the time I spent entering, it probably works out to 1.2 cents worth of winnings per hour. But it’s not going to stop me, I’m going to win something good… really… I hope…

So far, the only thing I know I’ve won for the month of May is a coupon for a loaf of bread from the Sara Lee contest. I’m hoping to get some news on other possible wins.
Congrats on all your wins, Sandra! I played the Maids every day and never got an instant win.
What is the biggest prize you’ve ever won and how long have you been sweeping? Thanks!

Congratulations, Erin! I always tell myself when I go for a long time with only little wins, that my luck is storing up for something big! :)

I don’t know if it’s true or not, but it keeps me charged up to keep entering :)

Missy, congratulations on your bread win! It might be small, but it’s the kind of win that keeps us all going. I hope that you’ll receive more win notices in the next few days!

I’ve won a lot of things, but some of my favorites include shopping for free Prada shoes, a shopping spree at Cargo Kids, and a huge batch of toys from ToysRUs that kept my nieces and nephews supplied with presents for a long time :) How about you?

And I won a phone call to a child from a Disney character from the Ella Enchanted instant win game, and a free music download.

I won a Blockbuster rental and a loaf of bread. I also was notified that I won something, but I don’t know what it is. It wasn’t an instant win. I’ll just keep watching for the mailman.

I won an instant win for a free movie from Blockbuster. Locally I won a $500 Visa card from my credit union for a short essay on how they helped me reach my financial goals over the years, and I won free movie tickets from a local radio station and now have a chance to go to Mohegan Sun casino for a concert with the announcer and another winner in a stretch limo (to be selected in the next few days) – here’s hoping!

(15) Danielle says:

I won a loaf of bread. I didn’t win any instant win games. I read the article about doing them at weird times of the day (mostly in the middle of the night), but I can’t stay up that late. Is it a problem that I enter mostly during the day?

(16) Jackie says:

I won a $50 Gift Certificate for Limoges Jewelry from Fabulous Savings, a call from a Disney character, a gift basket from the Maids (ARV. $150), and a free rental from Blockbuster. All were Instant Wins.

I won the Kodak camera and printer from pizza party like a pro and a blockbuster rental. I tried the weird hours at night a few times but no luck with all those other instant wins and I must have tried them all!!! but I am happy with my camera that was my first big win.

I won a 7-night Royal Caribbean cruise from the GMA Winter Concert Series sweeps! I got a loaf of bread certificate… I had won this MONTHS ago and rec’d it but it was for a brand not sold locally. I just said ‘oh well’ and threw it out. Then lo and behold, they somehow realized the error and sent me a replacement for a brand I CAN get here. I’m impressed! Also got a $5 Blockbuster cert.

I won the loaf of bread and a chocolate bar that many of you guys have also won. Then I won the biggest prize to date for me (and I’ve been doing this for several months!). It was the X-Box 360 Guitar Hero Aerosmith Game, ARV $70 I think. Not the grand prize (which included the game unit) but one of the First prize winners. (instant win, 7-11 Slurpee contest). So, I’m pretty excited!

Wellthe month of May I won the I pod skin from orthoevra patch site, sara lee loaf of bread, and xbox points at the slurpee 7/11 site.
