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."
Sweepers figured out long ago that there's no particular trick to winning beyond volume: enter as many contests as possible and you'll win something. "It's kind of like the gym in January," explains Carolyn Wilman, who runs the site Contest Queen. "To win steady, you have to enter steady. You can't go to the gym three times and go, 'Wow, I haven't lost 20 pounds.' People do that. They go, 'Well, I entered three contests and I didn't win.' Really? I entered 3,000 this month and I won five prizes. You do the math."
Referrals also play a role in some contests, meaning you have to be strategic about your alliances. "I have learned the hard way that you really gotta pick and choose who your sweep friends are," says Melissa Cunningham. Still, sweepers are quick to point out that some online spaces, including the aforementioned Sweeties Sweeps, have reputations for being positive and encouraging. "It doesn't stop me from winning," Wendy Limauge says of educating aspiring sweepers with her site. "I've taught everything I know about sweepstakes to the public and it still hasn't stopped me."
Twitter proved to be an interesting new venue for contests. I entered nine contests there. Most seem like ploys to get more followers, including some very legit-looking contests from designer Vivienne Tam, and a Web site I know and like called DealsPlus. But many Twitter contests looked completely bogus, including one offered by a guy with 72 followers and a page rife with typos.

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.

She's not alone. There are "sweepstakes clubs" all over the United States and Canada where sweepers meet to trade tips.

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!

Almost SIX years! I’ve gotten everything from household items such as laundry soap to personal care items like deodorant and shampoo, clothes for me and my kids. I even got a free mattress – twice!! Many freebie sites such as GOFreebies give the runaround and claim they’ll send samples when in reality they DO NOT. Gofreebies does list some real samples, but it’s so hard to figure out how to actually get them and they mislead us into believing they have “warehouses full of free stuff to give away.” That is just not true. That’s not how freebie sites work. Real free sites may do giveaways (such as sweepstakes which have a limited number of prizes to random winners), but mostly they aggregate offers from real companies who are offering free samples or free things, or they may figure out ways to get free things in stores using specific coupons on items on sale so the item ends up being free. In short, most of the websites on this list are not actually very good!
Then there is the problem with the forums themselves. Full of increasing negativity and crackpots. Racist jokes are allowed, anti-gay, bigoted comments are allowed, and if reported for being offensive, the person reporting them are told they are aggressively attacking the racist and that they will be banned. Over the last 18 months, it has only become worse, reminding this member of websites like Stormfront. Any member who publicly challenges those members, is immediately banned, as are their spouses. It does not matter if you are a paying member. Any attempt to contact the owner about this development has gone unanswered.
In the United States, sweepstake sponsors are very careful to disassociate themselves from any suggestion that players must pay to enter, or pay to win, as this would constitute gambling. Sweepstakes typically involve enticements to enter a consumer promotion with prizes that range from substantial wins such as cars or large sums of money to smaller prizes that are currently popular with consumers. There should be no monetary cost to the entrant (although some sweepstakes require entrants to subscribe to a promotional mailing list, potentially exposing the entrant to an increase in junk mail, spam email, or telemarketing calls) and sweepstakes winners should also not be required to pay any kind of fee to receive their prizes.[12]

Thank you for a great article. I have been interested in “Free” things from the internet. One day, I was thinking to have my own website to broadcast ” freebies” but I don’t know how to start getting the information. Is it ok to just post the freebies that I get from subscribing from other websites in my website or I need to get permission from the company who own the freebies.

I have a freebie group on facebook. I only post direct links to the sample or freebie and I always test it out before I post. So when members click the link they just have to fill out the form and press submit and wait for their samples/freebies! I’ve gotten hundreds of things! II’m also a member of bzzagent, smily360, influenster, crowdtap, reviewkick ect. Busy mom lol !
