What Did You Win in February of 2012?

By March 1, 2012

Follow me on:

OK, we have two full months of 2012 behind us now. How is the year shaping up so far in terms of sweepstakes prizes? For me, February was slow, in part because I've been sick for part of it (I'm recovering now, no worries!) I did receive a $25 Red Envelope gift card, a $5 in KFC cash, some music downloads, and some other small prizes.

How about you? Did anyone have a lucky February? Tell me about your wins, big or small, by clicking on the "comments" link below. I'm looking forward to hearing your good news!

Not winning enough? Maybe these articles can help:

Sweepstakes winnings have been very slight last year and this year.
Last year I won an HP 3in1 printer.
So far this year I have won the HODGESON GRAIN BASKET…$85.
So at least a little.

February was good! lots of little wins: candy, pizza, bbq sauce, dunkin breakfast sandwich and juice, raspberry airborne, uncrustables. Last, and best: a $250 gift card from a local facebook contest (“share your best “worst” valentine’s day story).

Glad to hear you’re feeling better, Sandra. February was a winning month for Jason Clark of Pocahontas, AR, who won a life-changing $1Million SuperPrize from Publishers Clearing House on 2/29/12. When the PCH Prize Patrol surprised him, he was so stunned, he just said, “Oh, whatever!” Click here to read about Jason Clark’s PCH SuperPrize Win or to watch the video of Jason Clark’s PCH winning moment.

I had several small wins: candy, pretzels, a Tee shirt, shampoo, pizza and two gift cards for the NFLshop.com . It is always exciting to get the email or message on the instant win games that says…Congratulations, you won! Thank you Sandra, for all your hard work!!!

Another month of nothing after entering many Sweeps every day. Starting to lose enjoyment of entering Sweepstakes.

Can’t recall that I won anything this month. There was even that extra leap day! So I have no excuse.

Yay! We won the Amtrak/Tin Tin trip to the Greenbrier Resort! We have scheduled the trip for September. The fulfillment company and Amtrak reps have been wonderful. Makes the effort (going back to the days of 3×5′s and licky stamps) worthwhile. The first sweepstakes I ever entered was sponsored by an antifreeze company (Zerex, as I recall). The grand prize was a new Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, valued at the time at $17,000. I didn’t win, but I’ve been hooked ever since.

Starting this year off the same way the last 3 have ended. I’m luck less……..
Good luck to the rest of you!

February was a boring month as far as sweepstakes go. I won nothing, but I will not give up. One never knows what one may win.

Hey everyone! February was nice. I won a one-year subscription to SiriusXM Internet Radio (supposedly- still waiting on a confirmation), Ever Style Strong Hold Styling Spray, Pizza & Pepsi Max (from Papa John’s Superbowl Giveaway), $25 Live Nation Cash Code, a Wonder Bread Lunchbox, box of Jollytime Popcorn, $25 NFLShop GC, a Thomas English Muffin Product up to $5, $25 Mastercard GC, a box of pasta, $50 Mastercard GC, and a bag of Lindor Truffles. Lots of little wins, but I like that!! :) Good luck to everyone in March!!!

After winning the Super Bowl trip in Jan., Feb. has been a total letdown. I think that’s the way the sweeps gods work!!

Just some music downloads, a daily ‘zonk’ prize from Obierto, some candy bars in the sweeps leftover from Jan., $1 Subway card for a cooke, and that’s really it. It was a pathetic month but I have no plans to quit.

Congrats to all the winners and luck to us all for March.

Just a small win, but I came away with a $50 Victoria’s Secret Gift Card in their Valentine’s Sweepstakes! I am very happy! Thanks Sandra for all you do every week for us “sweepers”!

In February, I won one of the TCM January Book Corner Sweepstakes prizes…the book “Thomas Ince: Hollywood’s Independent Pioneer”. I was really puttin’ my love on those entries, as my boyfriend’s daughter is studying Film at college…a little gift for her.

And, the ubiquitous Better Homes and Gardens Magazines started rollin’ in. We have a household of Sweepers, and our mailbox runneth over with three prize subscriptions. We gifted our neighbors with the extras.

Thanks for all you do, Sandra. Feel Better & Stay Cozy!

I did win in the Chevy Time contest a set of Bridgestone Tires worth $600 and a $25 Red Envelope gift certificate from Lindor/Lindt chocolate. I know it’s the persistence that pays off and the excitement of what is going to appear in my email or at my front door!

Very small wins for me, 2 candy bars, a hat, scratch ‘n sniff sticker, and a pen. Total let down for me, February was worst than January and March is not looking good either. Good Luck to everyone and hope you are feeling better Sandra.
