Are you wondering why people love the sweepstakes hobby so much, even though they haven't won a new house or million dollar prize? Entering sweepstakes isn't just about the big wins; it's fun even when you are only hitting smaller prizes. Find out why!
1. Enter Sweepstakes for the Thrill of WinningBig or small, it's exciting to find out that you've won a prize. Opening up your mailbox to find an affidavit inside, or reading a "Congratulations!" in your subject line can brighten up your whole day.
2. Participate in the Fantastic Sweepstakes Community
Sweepers are a tightly-knit community who love to help one another win. Although it might seem counterintuitive, since more people participating lower the chances of winning, the fact is that more sweepers also means more benefit to sponsors, and therefore more great contests. By joining the sweeping community, you can make friends from around the country who share your hobby and celebrate in your wins. Get started today by visiting the Sweepstakes Forum
3. Sweepstakes Prizes Offer New ExperiencesSometimes you win prizes that you never thought you'd want or need - only to find out that you absolutely love them. A new fragrance, a DVD of a television series you've never watched, or a book from an unknown author can quickly become favorites. If it weren't for that win, you would have missed a cherished experience.
4. Share Sweepstakes Prizes with Friends and Family
Wins can make fantastic gifts for friends and family. Imagine being able to give a gift that you'd never be able to afford, such as an iPod, a pair of Prada shoes, or a vacation with a friend. Entering sweeps makes gift-giving holidays and birthdays easier and more fun. For more tips, see How to Use Prizes as Presents
5. Dream about Sweepstakes Wins to ComeMost people will never have a million dollars, a new house, or a new car fall into their laps without having to pay for it. For a sweeper, it could happen at any time. That possibility, that potential for something amazing to be just around the next corner, is one of the best parts about entering sweepstakes.
