    Well, I won something again! Not so long ago, I won $250 cash & I've also won various things throughout the years (luggage set, Roomba Robotic Floor Vac, $500 Nordstrom gift card, 3-wheel baby stroller, & more).

    I'm going to look through the HP site & see what I want! Happy birthday to me! (It's on Sunday the 16th) :D

    I go to an online sweepstakes site & enter through the official brand sites. I also think of numerous random brands (i.e. Kleenex, Sharpie, Hummer, Nissan, etc.) & see if there's any sweepstakes going on. Some sweeps you can enter daily, some only once.

    This one was through Rolling Stones & the grand prize was a $1000 HP Envy laptop, which I don't mind not winning because I already have a laptop.
    There was only one other winner & I got it...the $500 gift card!

    Remember, try to use an educator discount, so you can get things for cheaper.

    Ms I, you've inspired me.

    I just entered a bunch of contests through Woman's Day magazine. We'll see...

    Thanks guys!

    SwOcean Gal, maybe a mini laptop, pocket-sized video camera &/or a couple other things, but I'm not sure yet! (I just got a new 4-in-1 machine & I have a digital camera already.)

    Aliceacc & PCdiva, great. Maybe you'll win something too soon!

    Do you get a bunch of spam emails or mail because of signing up for these contests or why do they have them? =)

    Well, Ms I, you've inspired me.

    I've just entered a ton of sweepstakes, mostly for domestic vacations.

    "Hey, you never know!"

    All it took was a few minutes of my time.

    TennisPlayer, no I don't get spam/junk emails because I check off that I don't want their newsletters, etc. Below are the sites I like, but you can Google more & see what's out there. Also, remember to think of all kinds of brand names & see if there's any promos on their sites (i.e. car makers, food brands, paper products, clothing, stores, etc.)

    I really only enter sweeps for the 3 biggies: Money, cars, & trips.

    I used this to find out about contests...
    http://sweepstakeshunter.blogspot.com/

    I didn't read the terms and conditions and accidently subscribed to Cosmo and Redbook....the Cosmo one was really easy to cancel when I got the email confirming it, the Redbook one I have to wait until I get the first issue. oops!
