Did You Win Any Sweepstakes Prizes in June, 2013?

By July 1, 2013

Follow me on:

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a very lucky month last month, and I'd love to hear about it! I only won a few small prizes, so I'd love to get more motivated by hearing about yours. Big or small, click on the "comments" link below to share your good news!

If your month wasn't all that lucky, it's not too late to turn that luck around. First of all, make sure you know how you'll be notified if you win to make sure that you don't overlook any win notifications (that's SO frustrating!).

Next, check out my tips for improving your chances of winning.

And finally, if you're feeling frustrated, I have a large collection of tips about how to beat sweepstakes frustration. I hope they help. Good luck!

June felt rather frustrating. But in retrospect, it may not be so bad.

6/18- live like the king (still don’t have a clear answer what this prize is)

No winnings in June, but hopeful to hear on about 36 that I had been entering that ended in last half of June. I entered 7 diffferent She Knows contests that ended on 6/30 a lot. They have unlimited entries and entered those 7 contests at least a total of 6,000 or more entries to have maybe decent odds. Best news is this guy, deaf in one ear and close to deaf in the other, got a part time night janitor at a new Cracker Barrel opening on 7/22. Not many jobs I can do with the hearing loss and been applying and trying to find one for 3 years !!! Finally will not keep my nose in the computer as much so will have to cut back on the contests some.

I won a $5 amazon credit. Better than nothing! :)

The odd thing is that I don’t have any idea which sweepstakes I won it from. It came in an email from ePrize and Tango Card. I’m pretty sure Tango Card wasn’t the sponsor. I wonder if anyone here won this same prize and knows who the sponsor was. Oh well.

I won a $50 visa card back in April. It’s amazing how long it takes to get your prizes. 8-10 weeks after the contest ends. I’m still waiting. Congrats to all the June winners.

Didn’t get skunked, but didn’t exactly have a banner month either.

Won a BIC pen!!

Also got my Skittles coupon from some long ago sweep.

Better things are on the way.

Luck to us all.

A month or two ago I had been complaining about my recent sweepstakes luck… and unlike in real life that always seems to work. :D

I (tentatively) won a $3,000 Visa Gift Card! Returned the affidavit recently and all that… don’t want to specify the exact sweep until the prize arrives because that feels a little bit like a jinx, but quite exciting! It would be my biggest prize to date.

Well I didn’t win anything this month. I will keep trying. Congrats to all the winners. It is sort of nice to hear that someone is winning the sweeps I enter, it may be my time soon.

Congrats to David on your new job. It can be really frustrating to find employment when you are disabled. I hope it works out well for you. 6000 entries, whew you are dedicated. No wonder I haven’t won any of the sheknows contests :)

July 2, 2013 at 12:11 am
(17) David says:

Chelle, thanks for the comment. She Knows notifies winners in 2 business days after their contests close so should know this week if entering them over and over and over pays off. .

David, congratulations on your job!!! That’s a really big win.

I had a very slow start to the month, but things pick up towards the end. I won a number of instant wins, my first Pinterest that was more than a coupon, and a really HUGE box of chocolate from Lindt – a true sur-prize that arrived last Thursday. So not nearly as much as last month, but I are grateful all the same. Thanks to the sponsors and to Sandra!!!!

So, I won:

Gift Box of Lindt Hello Chocolate ($115) from the Lindt Hello Chocolate Pleased to Meet You Sweepstakes

Coral (embroidered) pillow from the Interior Design and Style Comfy Heaven Pinterest Giveaway

International Delight® Iced Coffee tumbler in the International Delight Hey America Q2 IW Game

Variety pack or tumbler in the Keurig Brew of Ice Sweepstakes IW

Golf Umbrella from the AC Delco Garage Sweepstakes IW

A Stainless Steel Digital Pocket Cooking Thermometer from the Food should Taste Good Let’s Summer IW

HOT TAMALES® candy from the HOT SLOTS game IW

Free Mike and Ike Candy from the Mike and Ike Spin and Win Game IW

Sample of Lever from the Pull the Lever IW

I won a $5.00 Subway card. That is it, but I have a feeling I am going to win big soon.

I’m new to sweepstakes entering. How often does everyone enter? I’ve been entering on all the daily sweeps with no luck. I’ve tried SheKnows too. Since it’s unlimited, how much should I enter?

(21) Ambar says:

Annie, from what I’ve read everyone has their little strategies that they feel pay off at some point in time. I have won a few decent prices but I really only enter contests that allow one entry per person only. I have young children at home and well, not too much leisure time to sit and enter all the sweeps I’d like to. I focus on sweeps that are giving away family trips and gift card or cash. I guess it just all depends on how much time you dedicate to entering the sweeps. Good Luck this month!

I entered the “Ram Ultimate Hunt Sweepstakes” plus over 100 other sweeps, had hopes of winning a Ram truck (I think that was the grand prize) I did win I did win a set of Caribou Mossy Oak Binoculars.

Actually, I now have 3 pair of binoculars now, on pair I bought in the early 70”s another pair I was given that was prob from the 40′s or 50′s and this pair I just won, and I don’t hunt, hey, I won something, maybe next time a truck!!!

Thanks Ambar. Also don’t have too much leisure time doing so. Good luck to you too!
