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!
