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

Responses: 42

Do you use Roboform to enter sweepstakes? Whether Roboform is a must-have sweepstakes tool or a road to disqualification is a hotly-debated topic in the sweepstakes hobby. Weigh in on your opinion here!

Won Yesterday

First win after about eight days using Rofoform. Twas only a five dollar gas card, I figure that I'll start slow and build. I enter sweeps as a hobby not a business and Roboform gives me a fuller appreciation and enjoyment of my efforts.

Roboform

I use it, but follow the advice of a regular at Mr Sweepy's site who has won many GP's as well as prizes monthly...I fill in with robo then I tab through all the spaces and for one - usually city, I backspace and type in the last few. I agree, sweepers visit the site, learn new things about the sponsers and many times bookmark the page or sign up for mailings.

I wouldn't use Roboform or anything else

I've noticed that almost ALL sweepstakes and contests nowadays state in the official rules something to the effect of: "Use of any automated system to participate or subvert the entry process is prohibited and will result in disqualification and all associated entries will be void." There ARE some that do not state this, but most do. So I hand type all of my entries...

Roboform

I've been using it since beg. of January. I started out nicely (I won two free passes for a 3D movie) but nothing else since then. I spend one hour first thing in the morning and then another few looking for new contests during the rest of day. I'm a bit dissapointed but will keep on trying.

Another game of "craps"

Believe me if I wanted to play craps I'd of moved to Las Vegas. Rather than doing that I have chosen to enter sweepstakes. Why, to enter my chance of winning something, anything and hopefully money or a major prize.. Listen, most of these Sweeps and Contest have a extended list of rules to qualify where by most except learned individuals or lawyers can understand it. Besides all this my chances of winning are astronomical. Bottom line: I use Robo Form for all contests because there are plethorias of sweeps. Who cares if one is rejected the other 100 entries I initiate may win me something. I do at least 10 a day, if only 50% are excepted that's 300 every month. So, believe me there are many factors to winning. Since I think I will win and believe it, then I will eventual WIN!

Roboform

Thanks for info. I've been afraid to use the program because I wasn't sure if it was legal. It would be terrible to win and be disqualified. But my wrist hurts and I already have to use a brace so I'm going to use it. Thanks for info.

Can't do without it.

I've been using Roboform for about 2 years and this year I've won over $12,000 mostly in actual money. But this is a good article to read. It won't change anything I do. After all, if the site says "your entry was successful" that means it was successful. Right? And how on earth can they tell if you used RF? My 2 cents.

Roboform use

I got the free version and have used it a few times. I just started so I don't really know if it is working against me.... By reading all of the comments, it sounds like a 50/50% good/bad thing to do. Better to hand type things in but it does hurt the wrists.... so I don't do too many. Even shoulders start hurting! I don't think it is a bad thing to use... it helps out but I don't think that it works all the time.

Robo the king!

If I could not use Robo I wouldn't bother to sweep. Not ever worth the time nor effort if you have to hand type everything. Odds of winning are bad enough. And I don't want to have to win a wrist brace.

roboform user

Yes I use roboform, in fact I have just upgraded to robform 7 to-day, although I sometimes wonder how many of the sweeps I enter get rejected for using it, even though I check the rules....I guess we'll never know, just another cyberspace phenom:

roboform

I just started using Roboform, and I love it. My wrist started hurting from all the contests i was entering, even with auto-fill. Unless it says key-stroke, I am using it.
—Guest Randi

I Love Robo Form

I love Robo Form! I have been using it for many years and have won some great prizes. I hate to enter sweepstakes that make you manually enter your information - usually skip them.
—Guest JOY

All The Time

I've used it for years & I've won LOTS of prizes ranging from trips & $1000 gift cards down to bag clips.

Rules

I skim the rules, especially for a big prize. I hand type for some, but I think most, if not all of my wins are from entries done with Roboform. One was for $5,000. A recent win on SheKnows.com was by Roboform. I like the number of entries I can make in a short time.
—Guest Terry Bonn

Been using RoboForm for almost 6 months

I've been using RoboForm for a while and it's great. It just helps you fill out your same information in a click instead of typing it all out every time. You still click through each page of the surveys, so it's not an Automated Entry. If you fill out freebie sweepstakes or do sites like PrizeRebel where you earn free stuff for filling out surveys and offers, RoboFrom will save you ridiculous amounts of time. This will allow you to complete more surveys quicker so you can earn more free stuff faster.
