General Conditions: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstakes is impaired in any way for any reason, including, but, not limited to, fraud, virus or other technical problem, the Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes in a manner that best conforms to the spirit of these Official Rules; or (b) cancel the Sweepstakes and award the prizes in a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. The Sponsor reserves the right in its sole discretion to disqualify any individual it finds to be tampering with the entry process or the operation of the Sweepstakes or to be acting in violation of the Official Rules of this or any other promotion, or in an unsportsmanlike or disruptive manner. Any attempt by any person to undermine the legitimate operation of the Sweepstakes may be a violation of criminal and civil law, and, should such an attempt be made, the Sponsor reserves the right to seek damages from any such person to the fullest extent permitted by law. The Sponsor's failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision.

You might be following some promising accounts, but there's still a chance you'll miss opportunities amid all the online noise. To avoid this, you can set up pings for keywords that will help filter your tweets and emails. When running a search in Tweetdeck, I generally include terms such as "giveaway," "RT to win," or "win tickets" that are most likely to be included in a social media manager's promotion message. You could also specify a target item, whether it's a newly released book, travel, or electronics.

A Purchase Does Not Increase Your Chances of Winning.  Very important to note, especially when a Sweeps is run by a Magazine.  There is usually a link to click to Enter the Sweeps without Subscribing or Without making a purchase. Also, most Sweeps have an AMOE (Alternate Method of Entry) outlined in the Official Rules.  This usually involves printing your information on a 3x5 index card and mailing it to the sponsor before the Sweepstakes end date. I've won a few prizes like this because most folks do not like to put forth the effort of filling out and mailing the cards.
Trolling is encouraged, and even protected by the moderators, as long as it is done by members whose views they agree with. Even when the person trolling publicly admits they are doing so and openly baits other members in hopes to stir up responses and getting the other member banned. If you are not white, Christian, and heterosexual, you are not welcomed and you will be quickly driven away or banned. And again, any attempt to contact the owner or his girlfriend about this on going problem is ignored.

Let's face it: you're already bingeing anyway, so why not get rewarded for it? Viggle listens for your music and TV shows and recognizes what it hears, giving you points for each song and show it can identify. You can convert those points into gift cards, cash or prizes, but be warned: it takes a while to accumulate enough points to cash out. Rihanna's "Desperado" only merits two points, but it takes 20,000 to get a $20 Amazon gift card.
Among the most popularly known sweepstakes in the United States were the American Family Publishers Sweepstakes (now defunct), Publishers Clearing House and Reader's Digest Sweepstakes, each of which strongly persuaded entrants to purchase magazine subscriptions by placing stickers on contest entry cardstock while promising multimillion-dollar (annuity) winners who will be "announced on TV." The American Family Publishers sweepstakes used paid advertisements during NBC's The Tonight Show to announce its grand prize winners (for many years, its celebrity spokesman was Ed McMahon). All three companies eventually paid fines and penalties to a variety of states who initiated legal actions against them. Of those three companies only Publishers Clearing House continues to use sweepstakes as a promotional device, and as recently as 2010 paid $3.5 million to settle charges that it had violated the terms of a 2001 multi-state agreement for which it was fined $34 million.[14][15]

Stephanie Beaver began sweeping after the birth of her daughter, who required neo-natal intensive care that resulted in a $30,000 medical bill. Breanna Pollard, a college student in Texas, sweeps to offset the cost of tuition and textbooks. But sweeping isn't quite as reliable as a paycheck. "You can't choose what you win," says Lesley Gagnon, a 45-year-old in Iowa, noting that gift cards and prize packages won't pay your rent.
