    Arrow Do you ever hope you don't win the Grand Prize?

    Many times I enter, hoping I just win the 2nd or 3rd place prizes. If I won a boat, I'd have to sell it, but the second place prize is what I wish for.... If you don't enter, you won't win. Mostly I WANT the grand prize, but there are times I cross my fingers I won't win!

    All the time! I entered one sweeps a few years back and I hoped to win either 1st prize (trip to a nascar race) or 3rd prize (a Ipod) and won 2nd prize- a weight loss system. Don't remember what the GP was, but I didn't want it. Yep, you're not the only one that sometimes enters for something other than the GP!

    It happens to me all the time. So far I haven't had to turn down a great grand prize thankfully.

    Yep, the lower tier prizes are usually my objective, and there have to be a LOT of them if the GP is a trip to even entice me to enter!

    I LOVE the promos that have separate entry points for the GP & lower tier prizes, or like the ConAgra Foods, Inc - Hungry for Football Sweepstakes which has 2 different entry points, depending on which prize you'd like to win!

    Add my name to the list of people who usually want the cash or gift cards, not the trip out of the country or the private concert from a celebrity. Experience type prizes are cool but you can't eat them, spend them or use them to pay bills.

    It bugs me a little that sweeps with cash prizes are becoming more and more rare. I think most sweepers would rather have $10 from Kellogg's than a frisbee with the Kellogg's logo or another t-shirt.
