Melissa Cunningham spends 32 hours a week sweeping, often staying up until 3am and rising at 5am, taking a mid-day nap between self-imposed shifts. She's accumulated more than 200 wins for the year so far. "If you want to take a break for a few days, that's fine," says the Pennsylvania sweeper. "But if you're gonna take a break for two weeks, then you can really expect your wins to go downhill."
For sweepers, the time and energy investment can be staggering. "There's certainly no black-and-white textbook for sweeping," says Arena Thompson, a 33-year-old in Oregon who has been entering sweepstakes since 2010. "A lot of it is you have to develop your own radar for scams and proper etiquette. I think there's a strong learning curve for learning the ins and outs."

Claim it! is a product giveaway app that offers you the chance to enter weekly sweepstakes. The app offers localized giveaways that change each week, which users can enter by selecting a product and clicking "Claim it!" The app lets you know the chances of winning each giveaway, how many people have entered and the value of each item, but just like in a lottery, your chances vary: I had a 100% chance of getting a free coconut water, but less than a 1% chance of winning Powerbeats 2 headphones.
With big-ticket items on the line, competition can get fierce. "I've gotten swear words said to me when I've won stuff," admits Audrey Bernhard, 35, who has scored about $11,000 in prizes this year. On Twitter especially, overly aggressive sweepers can come out of the woodwork. "You'll get direct messages—they'll chew you out and they'll blacklist you," adds Arena Thompson. "A lot of people that win big, they maybe get too addicted to it. It's very addictive to win constantly and have FedEx and UPS show up at your door. They get too deep into it and lose perspective that it's a game of chance."
3. PRIZES: One (1) winner will receive $10,000 in cash from Sheplers. Prizes are not redeemable/exchangeable. No prize transfers. No substitutions are allowed. Prize will be awarded in the form of a check. All decisions made by Sheplers are final. Maximum retail value = $10,000. Odds of winning depend on the number of people who enter the giveaway.

To streamline things, some sweepers are more selective about what they go after, as well as what they accept. "The first year I got into it, I entered everything and got a lot of stuff that was like, 'Eh, what am I going to do with that?'" says Gagnon. "I'm pickier now." Sweepers have also been known to turn down prizes they'd rather not pay taxes on; taxes are mandatory for prizes with values over a certain amount. Jennifer Joyner, a 31-year-old sweeper in South Carolina, explains, "If it comes down to a trip, it's got to be something that's once-in-a-lifetime, because the value of most of them is just not worth the taxes. I can plan something myself for a lot less. It's got to be something like a trip to Antarctica, something crazy."

Contest managers want a winner who promotes the brand, is excited, and will spread the word to his or her followers after winning. For social media contests especially, there's a big benefit to choosing a winner who has a decent personal following. Often the rules favor those who best represent the brand by meeting some arbitrary criteria for the "best" comment or entry.
People often call Carolyn Wilman and others "professional sweepers," because they put so much time, technology and strategy into it, but she rejects that label. "I wish I could earn my living winning sweepstakes," Wilman said. "But I couldn't pay my rent if I had to rely on prizes. Winning just enhances my life." Sweeping is also a popular hobby with people who aren't working, because it provides them a path to possessions and experiences they couldn't otherwise afford.
I've been using their site daily since 2007, and I've hated the site the entire time. The people running it, especially in the forums, are a bunch of inbred, uneducated rednecks. If you dare criticize the site and ask for improvements or complain about issues, you are openly ostracized on the site and put on their blacklist. Many of the bloggers who advertise giveaways on their site are part of the clique, and if OLS blacklists you, you are also blacklisted on these blogs.

Even if you type something like "get free stuff no scam", or even, "free stuff online without surveys" you still might end up spending hours looking up and visiting websites offering freebies by mail just to find out that the offer that you recently found is yet another scam. Without a doubt, this can get old and frustrating, and in the end, you will find yourself at your nearest retailer paying full price for the item that you initially set out to get for free.
6. GENERAL RELEASE: By entering the giveaway, you release Sheplers, its vendors or promotional sponsors and each of their respective affiliated companies (including parents, affiliates, and subsidiaries), directors, officers, employees, representatives, and agents from any liability whatsoever for any claims, costs, injuries, losses, or damages of any kind arising out of or in connection with the giveaway or with the acceptance, possession, or use of any prize (including, without limitation, claims, costs, injuries, losses and damages related to personal injuries, death, damage to, loss or destruction of property, rights of publicity or privacy, defamation, or portrayal in a false light). Sheplers will not be responsible for typographical, printing or other inadvertent errors in these Official Rules or in other giveaway materials.
This is obviously a bonus for the seller, and at the same time the consumer (you) will get to try and potentially keep all sorts of great free stuff. It's a win win! Now this may sound appealing and it should, but if what you are truly looking for is free stuff online, using coupons may not even satisfy your needs completely. This brings us to the solution that you've be looking for.
Sweepstakes must be carefully planned to comply with local laws and curtail forms of entrant fraud and abuse. Before home computers were popular, a common method of entry was a mailed, plain 3" × 5" index card with the entrant's name and address. Massive computer-printed entries resulted in a new requirement that entries must be "hand-printed".[citation needed] Laser printers which can mimic ink pen writing are also a problem for sponsors. In most sweepstakes, entrants and their relatives must not be related to the sponsor or promoter.
Though the internet has helped the sweeping community diversify, there remains a large contingent of sweepers who are stay-at-home mothers. For them, sweeping starts off as a way to pass time, occasionally growing into a noteworthy source of income. "When I started hardcore sweeping again in May, part of my goal was winning Christmas presents," says Thompson. "But the other part was to show my husband that this is a viable work alternative, because my four-year-old's going to go into kindergarten next year."
