    Re: SA Features - tips to get the most out of them

    I am a newbie.................is it worthwhile to enroll in the Sweepstakes Plus feature? 30 dollars a year is reasonable if it really helps with entry efficiency.

    :wave: bobfitts - it is to me - I value the hard work Ken & Diane put into making this THE best sweeps site for the serious sweeper!!!

    This thread discusses why:

    So, you heard about the AWESOME new Sweepstakes Plus Beta Launch???
    http://www.sweepstakesplus.com/smf/s...-t61527.0.html

    Being able to set up the categories the way I think they should be set up is worth it alone!!! :laughing:

    I also have a 1x, weekly, and monthly category for IW's

    Magazines are in form and login.

    Those daily sweeps with 1x registration and login re-entry are separate from the daily sweeps daily registration.

    Re: SA Features - tips to get the most out of them

    I go by category, sort by date added, C&P Entry Date to FIND and only look at the ones that don't have SweepsCheck marked off.

    Then I just go down the page and add the ones I'm interested in by category only, and when I'm done with the page, I hit save.

    THEN I go to SWEEPSPOP, selecting Check all SweepsCheck to mark all sweeps as entered/looked at because I don't save them for later.

    fyi - I've found sweeps that were moved from the wrong category that I would have missed out on by doing it this way. Plus, I don't have to remember which day I last looked if {when :whistle: } I fall behind! :crazytongue: :laughing:

    Sweeps Check is a tool to show that you have looked at a sweeps. In Sweeps Plus, after you enter a sweeps, you can save it to a category by selecting from your drop-down menu, then when you are all done, clicking on Save.


    If you only check Sweeps Check, they should still show "Select Custom Category" when you pull up a category, such as One Entry. They should not show up in your My Sweeps at all, and not as "One Entry" if you did not select One Entry.

    Re: SA Features - tips to get the most out of them

    SWEEPS COUNT:

    There is no limit to the number of sweepstakes you can have in your My Sweepstakes - whether SA or SP.

    ***HOWEVER - If you have any sweeps saved that run longer than one year, they will automatically be removed. ALL sweeps will only stay saved for one year from your save date, so if you have any saved that run longer, resave them at a later date to ensure they don't drop off.

    Your individual My Sweepstakes will tell you the total of active and expired sweepstakes you have saved.

    Example: if you go to a specific category, and it says you have 33, but you only see 13, the other 20 are in your expired.

    While in any category, look up top, and you will see: Alert! You Have Expired Sweepstakes: Show My Expired Sweepstakes

    If you wish to have an accurate account of just active sweeps, remove your expired, your count will then show active sweepstakes only.

    Please periodically remove your expired sweepstakes when they have served their purpose, thank you.

    Re: SA Features - tips to get the most out of them

    SA only lists the sweeps, SA does NOT run them. See Error Type {below} to see what SA ^can^ try to fix.

    Steps to try *before* reporting:

    1} Read the COMMENTS - it's possible others already reported/posted about your issues and how to correct them.
    2} Try to contact them directly: For Site problems, use their contact us form. For Facebook problems, post to their wall.

    Issues SA can't fix:

    1} Issues with the form; won't take captcha codes/UPC codes/zip codes, etc.
    2} Site runs slow, or won't open a link on their page.
    3} Scroll bar doesn't scroll.
    4} Submit button doesn't work - try tabbing through the fields and hitting the enter key.

    *If you seem to be the only one with this issue? It could be on your end. Is your computer up to date? Is your popup blocker preventing the form from loading?

    *Most issues with sweeps forms can be resolved by updating - links to test and update here:
    Adobe - check Shockwave & FLASH Player: http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome
    JAVA: http://www.java.com/en/download/installed.jsp

    Wrong Category
    Blank Page - No Sweep Found
    Wrong Date
    Error Message
    Form Won't Submit

    Re: SA Features - tips to get the most out of them


    Ken {SA owner} doesn't wish to create more categories, since the PLUS members can create their own, so this is my workaround for increasing my chances on DP/WP/MP sweeps:

    IMHO, DP/WP/MP sweeps {Daily Prize, Weekly Prize & Monthly Prize} are akin to IW's, but the editors have to go by the rules, and if the rules don't say "win instantly" {or similar verbiage}, they get listed by entry frequency.

    However, the editors will put Daily Prize, Weekly Prize, and/or Monthly Prize in the listing, so I use Daily Prize, Weekly Prize & Monthly Prize from the search box on the home page to find them.

    Since most sweeps are listed by entry frequency, that way I don't have to look through hundreds of listings in each category!

    PLUS members - Just create your own category for Daily, Weekly & Monthly prize sweeps so that, when you are short on time, you'll get to them for sure! :sunny:

    TIP - sort listings by Date Added before you start, if you have been up to date on checking the newly added listings {I usually open any category to sort, save, then I use the search terms} then I type Entry Date in FIND and only have to look at listings I haven't already checked off.
