What Did You Win in January, 2014?

By February 1, 2014

Follow me on:

So January kicked off the first chances to win in 2014. How did it work out for you? Were you happy with the prizes you received? Are you still plugging away, hoping for a big prize? Or are you starting to get discouraged? Whether your January was great or disappointing, I'd love to hear from you. Click on "comments" below to tell us how your month was.

There are some exciting chances to win this month, too. The 2014 HGTV Dream Home Sweepstakes is going to come to a close this month. There's a big contest looking for fabulous moms. And there are many more chances to win on my new sweepstakes list.

And if you're starting to feel a little discouraged, I have a lot of tips for dealing with sweepstakes frustration that I hope will help.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

I didn’t realize how little I’d won until I actually checked.

Just some Snickers bars.

Well all sweepers have months like this.

See you next month.

I won four snickers bars and a $10.00 coupon for PJ Organic Burritos. I guess it is better than nothing.

January wins -

My friends/family and I won several $50 Heineken Debit MasterCards in their holiday sweepstakes. At the end of their sweepstakes, it felt like one in three entries would be a winner. My daughter told her friends, and today was like Christmas for all of us. Some girls are buying diapers, others…wedding favors. Their Thank You sentiments for sharing the intel were very sweet. It is nice to see prizes going to the newly engaged and young parents, who can really use them.

Won a couple Skinny Cow coupons from their Resolve to Indulge Sweepstakes. Mommy Likey!

A Colander ($13) from Progressive’s Try, Share, Win Sweeps

A $250 Fresh & Easy Grocery Gift Card from Avocado Lover’s Club/Chile

2 Movie Ticket codes from Ore-Ida Family Holiday Giveaway

$5 Amazon Credit Code from Orville Redenbacher’s Game Day Contest

And, received a daily winner Cayman travel pack (a bag with beach towel, journal, about a dozen items) from “12 Days to a Cayman Christmas”

Two HBO Vice Hoodie Sweatshirts are en route.

Thank you for all your good work, Sandra! I love your informative, easy-on-the-eyes directory. I like reading your personal feelings about the sweeps. You are appreciated!

January was kind to me, I won a Trina Turk workout jacket ($140), a pair of Levi’s ($20), 4 Snickers bars, overnight lodging and lift tickets for ski resort, a Green Tea moisturizing lotion, and a Coors Light $25 gc. 2014 is much better already than 2013…
