Readers Respond: Do You Use Roboform to Enter Sweepstakes? Why or Why Not?

Responses: 42



I use Roboform (free version) and I also use the autofill on Google toolbar.

Using Roboform

I resisted using Roboform for a long time, but I've started using it now. It saves me a tremendous amount of time, and makes my sweepstakes hobby much more fun.


I use it and have won all my prizes with it. I would not be entering all the sweeps if I could not use it

I use roboform, thanks to you for the info, and I love it! It doesn't work everywhere but it sure save time. Thank you.

I used to use it

I don't use it now because I prefer to use Chrome and couldn't get it to work quite right. I use Texter presently and the Google form filler. I did use Roboform for many years and still won prizes. :)


I have been using Roboform for several years and will continue to use it. I paid for it and it has paid off in the long run by helping me to win many prizes. I enter to many sweeps to sit here all day and type each one in

I use Roboform every day. I have won a few prizes: Nail polish, a $10 gift card, Dolly Madison cup cakes, a $50 gift card... all in the last three months. Thanks Roboform!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why Using RoboForm Does Not Violate Sweepstakes Rules RoboForm is a client-side agent that saves you keystrokes by filling forms for you. Web sites that offer sweepstakes want you to learn about their products and to see their advertising. If you use RoboForm to fill forms on these sites, you still learn about their products and you still see their advertising. RoboForm is completely legal, because it does not deprive web site owners of their page views and therefore their revenue. Many sweepstakes rules state that "Automated Entry" is illegal. What they mean is that if a program fills an entry form and clicks the Submit button for you then you will not see their site and you will not learn about their products. But RoboForm does not do that you still have to check results of form filling and click the Submit button.

yes to robo from

been using it for years got tired of looking up log ins to all the sites I visit just started with the sweeps have not won anything et I will take the chance using roboform to fill actually I did win something a $20 gift cert to HSN u can enter every day and I went back a few times and won $20 gift card but this was b4 I saw the Trya show I saw someone on the Trya show that entered lots of contest and won lots of stuff a freind of mine got me involved in a reading email for cash thing do not know if that will pan out


I enter manually because I don't want to risk being disqualified. Aslo, the hard work and dedication of manulally typing hundreds of entry forms gives me a great feeling...when I win, that my hard work paid off.


I enter all the sweeps using Roboform and have won using it.

I use it all the time and won some nice prizes. I started using it years ago.
—Guest Sharry03

Roboform has it's place

I use Roboform for almost every sweepstakes with the exception of the insistance of hand typing in the rules or if the prize is large and the rules state "no entries by script, macro, robotic or similar means of entry" Why risk forfeiting a big prize?
—Guest 9luckyduck9

No taking chances

Almost every sweeps says in their rules somewhere that micro, robo and other automatic means of entry will be disqualified. Well thats a 50/50 shot that it means roboform right? I dont enter sweeps for my health and typing for hours a day isnt all that fun either. So, when it comes to sweeps why waste your time taking chances. Its not worth the risk to me. And you will never know if your entries are being disqualified or not.
—Guest seriousboutwinning

i don't

I use the google form filler, works good enough for me. Good enough that I don't plan to change.
