Best Sweepstakes Sites

I have had sort of an off and on relationship with online sweepstakes over the years. The daily entry sweeps can hook me for a week or so, while I prefer the single entries so I never have to return. I subscribe to the site email newsletters only to cancel after awhile when I feel I am wasting my time. After some time passes there I am, entering sweepstakes again.

I have read that the key to winning sweepstakes is to enter as many as possible.
When I do get on a sweeps jag I use RoboForm to quickly fill out the forms. One other tip is to use an email address exclusively for your sweepstake entries because you could end up with a lot of spam. While I have not won anything substantial yet, you never know. And unlike the lottery, they are free to enter. In no particular order here are my top five favorite sweepstakes sites. Good luck!

CashNet Sweepstakes – A huge directory of contests and sweepstakes.

Sweepstakes Advantage – They offer a free newsletter. Become a member and you can participate in their referral rewards program.

Online-Sweepstakes – This site has a large directory as well as an extensive forum for members.

Sweepstakes Today – Visit Mr. Sweepy and his Lucky List, among other features on this list.

About.com Contests & Sweepstakes – Sign up for the free newsletter and check out the articles on how to avoid scams and their tips on how to win more prizes.

  4. Add Win.ly ( http://win.ly ) to the list. They're relatively new but a great idea. They actually analyze promotions and estimate your chance of winning. They also have fantastic tool for tracking your favorites, when you've last visited, when you need to visit again, etc.

  5. Just wanted to mention a sweepstakes website I found that is really great. It is called Instant Cash Sweepstakes. They have hourly and daily drawings. The way you enter is by doing simple three question surveys. Filling out the survey can earn you tickets, coins and cash. When you join and finish the tutorial they give you $1.00 and cash out is at $2.00 through paypal! It's worth checking out but honestly I love this one. Good luck to you all!

    1. excellent sweep site because you can eliminate the social media sweeps from your search and they have most of the same sweeps as the other biggies. They also have a presto button which automatically open all your saved contests, making it faster to enter daily. Has become my favorite.

  10. Agree with above post, www.contestgirl.com is a great site. You can keep track of the ones you've entered, and categorize them as well.

  17. contestgirl.com is by far my favorite site - extremely user friendly - separates the sweeps into categories, allows contestant to save entries in those same categories, which allows for easy reentry at the appropriate times for dailies, weeklies, and monthlies. There is an option to sort sweeps by expiry date so contestant can hit the sweeps close to expiration when time is at a premium. Now has a newsletter that gives most popular, least popular sweeps, and some good ones that may have been missed. Oh, I almost forgot one of the best things - on a contestants saved sweeps pages there is a "presto" button that allows all the sweeps on the page to be opened at once which saves a great amount of time - such ease. A well designed site!!!!!

  21. Hey guys! Check out this new site that just launched www.freebutton.com . It literally let's you enter as many times as you want without ever having to give your email address or any contact info (unless you win). It is totally legit, and awesome.
