Keeping Track of Your Sweepstakes

Let me start off with saying there is no right or wrong way to keep track of your sweepstakes. I am going to share the method that has worked best for me. Whether you have found your sweeps at online-sweepstakes.com, bigsweeps.com, from your own searches, or from right here I suggest having a really organized favorites/bookmark list. You will find that there are many sites out there that have multiple sweeps and contests that you can enter. Also, there is one time, daily, weekly, monthly, and even quarterly. It does break down even further with contests – essay, photo, recipe, etc.

Sweepstakes to Enter
*** this is my newly discovered sweepstakes folder. Inside nothing has been sorted or entered and official rules have not been read. The one time entries found in this folder will be entered and then moved to a Done subfolder.

Below are a few examples:

Daily Entry
***Subfolders for sites with multiple sweeps that contain direct links to the entry forms
***Individual daily entry sweeps out separate

I repeat this method with 24 Hour Entry, Weekly Entry, Monthly Entry, and Quarterly(there isn’t many of these). With 24 hour entry, I find it helpful to constantly change the name of this folder to include the time of entry each day.

Expired
***This one explains itself

Recipe Contests
***One Time, Weekly, and Monthly. There is also a Done subfolder.
I use this for all the categories of contests(photo, essay, craft, etc.)

Depending on how into sweeping you want to be you may want to add subfolders for entry per person/email address and per household. I hope that this will help you get on your way to winning! I can always answer questions. Organizing in this way has made entering hundreds of contests and sweepstakes per day only take a couple hours and not an all day annoyance!
