What Did You Win in November, 2012?

By December 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Hello, everyone! I'm a little late this month (sorry!), but I'd love to hear what you won in November of 2012. For me, it wasn't quite as good as last November, when I won a $1,000 cash card. Nevertheless, I won some small but fun prizes. They included a free movie ticket, a 12-pack of Coke products from the Merry Minutes of Winning Sweepstakes (which is still going strong), some poker chips, and a number of other prizes.

How about you? Did you win anything in November? Large or small, I'd love to hear about your prize wins. Click the "comments" link below to share your good news.

(2) David says:

Won a $25 gift card from Nestles, but said it will be Jan or Feb until I receive it. Enter about 60 daily entry contests every day and a handful of single entry contests. The grand prize usally ranges from $500 to $100,000 with some being various vehicles.Sandra, I wonder what the odds are to win a grand prize when entering as often as allowed for this many contests? I guess the best news of all is that my wife is expectiing a job offer this week any day after looking since 3/19/12.

$100 I Tunes card from 12 Prizes in 12 Days Luggage Online. Happy daughter in law there

Numerous Cuddleduds and HSN discount codes. If I was ordering anyway, great. But I won’t spend money just to use a prize.

Free Twix and a cute little Dole pin that looks great on my loot shelf.

And that was my November. On the other hand no skunking for Dec. as this morning I was notified I’d won a 3D DS XL in the new Target Dream Big Win Bigger.

So many sweeps ending in December–good luck to us all.

PS–luck and prayers to the comment above about the job seeker. We’ve been on that merry go round off and on since Nov. 09. It’s not fun, and it’s sad to see that plight in the US. I’m old enough to remember there was a time when there was a job for anyone willing to learn and work. Not that I want to get off on a rant here.

Only 6 people won something? I’m getting discouraged as I haven’t won anything and I’ve been entering contests for months.

(8) Carol says:

I will be hoping and praying for everyone to have a good month of sweeps in December, especially those that have not been winning.

My November wins were mostly local contests

Wonderful gift basket from raffle drawing at our church fair with around $150 of movie related items, including movie tickets and gift cards

Tickets from local radio station for food and wine tasting event

JCP Christmas button contest two $5 and one $10 gift certificate

(this is a good one to try for those who haven’t been winning, go to any JC Penney and get buttons at any register (no purchase needed) and then enter the codes (up to two a day) found on the back of the button)

Tickets to a special movie event – another local radio station

Best wishes to all this holiday season and those who are seeking work (I have been out of work due to illness over six months) and sweeping does help keep my spirits up

(11) David says:

Pat, thanks for the kind words and prayers. The prayers have been answered. My wife was offered the job this am and starts next Monday. She just interviewed last Thursday,took a drug screen Friday, and already the job is a done deal. That was incredibly fast. She is excited. Now maybe I will get lucky too and win a nice contest!! Actually, I feel some pressure off me to spend so many hrs on contests. Merry Christmas to all and good luck on the contests.

(13) Beverly says:

November was one of the slowest months for wins that I had for years. I Usually win 7 or a lot more prizes per month. As of Nov. 25th I had only won 2 prizes, a pizza from Papa Johns, and a magnet from Grizzly Man Cave, then Nov. 26, I received an email. I had won a Galaxay Note II ($699.99) from Samsung Smartest Shopper on facebook. So, it turned out to be great month after all.

This was awesome compared to my slow September and October, so I’m happy! I also got some toys in the mail that I had won over the summer, so I have already wrapped them as presents!

The holidays have so many fun sweeps to do, so I am invigorated to keep it going with my entries over the holidays. I spend a few hours a day entering about 200+ and some one-time entries.

Keep the faith everyone!! :)

OK here goes. I hope this encourages those who haven’t won anything.
First I won a complete two and a half hour fully catered tailgate party including liquor for myself and nine others prior to a pro football game. We were 50 feet from the stadium entrance. It was great. Just got back yesterday from Las Vegas because I won the Grand Prize in the NASCAR Unites Sweepstakes. 3 days and 2 nights in a luxury suite. Admission to all the NASCAR events. The banquet was Saturday night hosted By Howie Mandel. It was on Natoinal TV . Met the top ten NASCAR drivers, Train, Natasha Bettenfield and Cirq du soleil performed.It was all fabulous!

(16) CathyB says:

I will say I am really discouraged, I figure I have been entering about 100 contests a day give or take, I first started entering in the morning but found the few prizes I won on facebook were afternoon wins. I usually put the news on in the afternoon while listening I start entering,start making dinner, then finish up on entering after dinner. I have not won a thing this past month. I have been entering contests on and off for years, with some small wins, but decided to really get into entering lots of contests faithfully everyday, I can’t believe the odds aren’t with me! I wish everyone Happy Holidays, I hope we all have wonderful winning 2013!

(33) Katie says:

In 2010 and 2011 I was the happy winner of many wonderful prizes that I entered to win for my soon to be born little granddaughter…I mean a LOT of great things! Since Raffle Copter is the new way of entering contests, and I neither use Facebook or Twitter which add entries for winning, I haven’t been lucky at all in 2012. I really preferred the method of entering where writing a statement, something to do with the product or something personal was the best way to enter. Really miss it, and entering seems mindless and not as fun. Just my point of view (and not bitter apples folks!) Happy Holidays to everyone!

December 10, 2012 at 1:40 pm
(34) Cindy says:

Just got notified I won Weleda Almond Soothing Facial Oil from a Septenber giveaway from Lucky Magazine, My first win, might not seem like much, but I am very excited. Have be entering sweeps for about 7 months. Hopefully this is just the beginning. Thanks Sandra for the great newsletters, I look forward to them every week

(36) Dianne says:

Hi all. I won a year’s lease for my daughter for a 2013 Toyota Hybrid XLE Camry with unlimited mileage. I nominated her Woman of the Year because of a difference she has made in this world and in my life (she donated a kidney to me) and she won! I haven’t entered as many contests this year as I have been helping with my grandchildren and living life. But don’t give up. This prize alone made me so happy that I could win it for my daughter. And there are no taxes to be paid on her end. So don’t give up. I have won so many prizes. It just takes dedication. Just pick whatever it is you want to win and enter it as many times as you can. It works. Just follow Sandra’s advice! Good luck!
