    Do you set up an email just for the contest? If so do you find one email domain better than another such as gmail? Thanks!

    Congrats on your big win! Oh by the way, anybody having problem with the "Glamorama" contest from Macy's? I've been having problem with the entry page not loading (for 2 days now). Please let me know what to do, thanks.

    Some sweeps won't take "throwaway" addys - at least that's what I've heard, my guys use MSN & Hotmail & they've never had a problem that I know of.

    TIP: Use an addy you plan to always have - some sponsors only ask you to register 1x & pick a user name and password, which will work for all their FUTURE sweeps. If you change your addy mid-sweeps, it will look like you are trying to enter with multiple addys to them.

    It works in Firefox for me, but since it's a very resource intensive sweeps, perhaps you should update:

    Mine is with Yahoo... I LOVE yahoo.. I also have a Live.com & Gmail account. The Live.com is new (used for my business)...and I am impressed!
    A TIP - I have a email account for home.. that is everything day to day. I also have an account for the Yahoo Groups I belong to, a junk mail account, my business account and now my sweepstaking account. IT IS OKAY to have different email addys!!!!!!

    Yes, like you noted, OK for different purposes {ie: business, home, AND sweepstaking} it's NOT OK to have them ALL {or more than 1 per sweeps} for sweepstaking

    Re: NOT WINNING ANYTHING? Tips on WHY:

    If you enter at the same time every day and haven't won in a long time, change up when you enter - or even in what order you enter.

    Keep in mind that while winning is the goal, interacting with other sweepers in the forums and comments is a side benefit that will make you feel like a winner!!!

    Dry spells CAN be broken, so don't give up!!! However - if you are starting to feel burned out, take a break - sweeping should be fun, not a chore!!!


    I save winning pages to paint, so when I'm blue, I can revisit past wins and reaffirm that I AM a winner - you'd be suprised how such a simple thing can really lift your spirits!!!

    Re: NOT WINNING ANYTHING? Tips on WHY:

    Thank you. On a side note, I've always wondered about the recommended way to enter a phone number in an entry form. I was told the best way is with dashes between the area code and phone number and no parentheses around the area code: 123-456-7890. I don't know if that's important but I just wanted to share it.

    Re: NOT WINNING ANYTHING? Tips on WHY:

    All good and true tips and I have just one more from personal experience -
    Sharing advice, codes, tips etc., doesn't raise the competition as much as it creates the wind of good Karma that blows right back in your direction...... :headbang:

    We are all winners because we believe we can be!
    Go forth and win, friends! :wave:
