She's not alone. There are "sweepstakes clubs" all over the United States and Canada where sweepers meet to trade tips. At a sweepstakes club meeting in Reisterstown, Md., members listed everything they had won since the last monthly meeting: Twelve Lindt chocolate bars. $30 worth of free makeup. Three movie passes. A one-gallon tailgate jug. And the biggie at this particular meeting: $500 in cash. The club awarded that member a prize . . . for winning the biggest prize!

"A lot of companies don't like sweepstakers. They think they make for poor engagement," says Contest Queen's Carolyn Wilman. Thompson says she has seen giveaways on Instagram banning sweeping-only accounts. But sweepers argue that they're consumers too, and are just as likely as anyone else to try new products or pass on recommendations to friends.

Swarm, which is powered by Foursquare, recently introduced Perks, which give you discounts on purchases just for checking in. Right now, the app only partners with national retailers, but users can get discounts at stores like Famous Footwear, Calvin Klein, and Toys R' Us. Participating retailers will have little bags of money next to their name when you check in on the app, so it's pretty easy to find discounts. Swarm also gives you the option to participate in challenges, like checking into three summertime locations (like beaches or amusement parks) to win a $10,000 vacation.

Plus, real-life, non-sweeper friends and family members can get a bit concerned. "My parents think I'm a little crazy, because I do have a degree and I'm not really using it," says Ambrea Kuhn, a 25-year-old in Utah. She cater-waiters part-time and is able to cobble together a living through that and sweeping. A fast typer, she manages to enter 1,500 "dailies" and 200 new contests a day, all in about two hours.

A sweepstake is a type of contest where a prize or prizes may be awarded to a winner or winners.[1] Sweepstakes began as a form of lottery that were tied to products sold.[2] In response, the FCC and FTC refined U.S. broadcasting laws (creating the anti-lottery laws).[3] Under these laws sweepstakes became strictly "No Purchase Necessary to Enter or Win", especially since many sweepstakes companies skirted the law by stating only "No Purchase Necessary to Enter",[4] removing the consideration (one of the three legally required elements of gambling)[5] to stop abuse of sweepstakes.[5] Today, sweepstakes in the USA are used as marketing promotions to reward existing consumers, and to draw attention to a product.[2] By definition, the winner is determined by luck rather than skill.[6]
9. Release and Limitations of Liability: Except where prohibited, by participating in the Sweepstakes, entrants agree to release and hold harmless The Coca-Cola Company, Coca-Cola bottlers, HelloWorld, Inc., and their respective parents, subsidiaries, affiliates, promotional partners, prize partners, agents and agencies, and the officers, directors and employees of them (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical errors related to computers, servers, providers, printers or telephone or network lines; (c) printing errors; (d) errors in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries; (e) late, lost, or undeliverable mail; or (f) injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt of any prize. Entrant further agrees that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees. Entrant waives the right to claim any damages whatsoever, including, but not limited to, punitive, consequential, direct, or indirect damages. If, for any reason, an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another Sweepstakes entry, if it is possible. If the Sweepstakes, or any part of it, is discontinued for any reason, Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any prize offered herein. No more than the stated number of prizes will be awarded. In the event that production, technical, seeding, programming or any other reasons cause more than the stated number of prizes as set forth herein to be available and/or claimed, Sponsor reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, un-awarded, eligible prize claims.

Adds Clarke: "I see some people on these sites who enter everything, and I'm like, 'Why are you doing that?' One time I think it was for a beach towel. You're spending all your time on a beach towel? I'll go get you a beach towel." Not to mention, sometimes sweepers go after a grand prize and end up with a much less appealing second or third-place options. That's how Ambrea Kuhn ended up with her worst prize: "It was one of those fold-up Frisbees. I had no idea what it was, and it flipped me in the face." Sweeper Dawn Dodge's oddest prize was a bacon-scented alarm clock iPhone accessory. (She doesn't own an iPhone.)
Sweepstakes websites usually give you pertinent information about the giveaways they list at a glance, including how often to enter, who is eligible to win, and when the giveaway will end. Most directories take additional steps to help you find exactly the kinds of prizes you want to win, by letting you sort by the criteria that matter to you, such as prize category or entry frequency.
