    Re: SA Features How To

    Sweepsplus is awesome!

    I look back at my early days of sweeping. I started at a different site that doesn't offer all the tools SA does. Coming here took a little adjusting, but once I was adjusted, the speed of entering was amazing. Sweepscheck alone makes entering so much quicker.

    SA is great on its own. With instants having their own categories, all sweeps being free to all, sweepscheck so I know what sweeps I have already looked at and acted on or chosen to ignore, my personal favorite Sweeps Pop... It is a sweepers dream.

    Now, with the addition of Plus, personal sweeps categories. With all the improvements Ken is making, I can't wait to see what he is going to add to Plus next.

    Ken, thanks for listening to us.

    Trust me, if you haven't tried the three day trial, do it! You will be amazed! :headbang:

    Next, get familiar with SA. There are threads all over the forums talking about all the tools SA offers.

    That said, this is what I would recommend for you.

    1. Enter today's new sweeps. I enter by category because there are some that I don't enter such as blogs. Use sweeps check to mark the sweeps you have looked at and acted on or chosen to ignore. That way, when you are going through your expiring sweeps, you can race right down the list, looking for unchecked boxes.

    2. Enter the expiring sweeps for today and tomorrow.

    3. Pick a category, be it daily, one time, instant... Enter those from oldest to newest. As you enter, check the sweepscheck box. This will let you know you have already looked at the sweep and done whatever you wanted with it or ignored it.

    I say start from oldest to newest so that you don't miss any new ones that come as you are trying to catch up.

    Make sure you are entering the new ones daily. That way, once caught up, sweeping will be a breeze.

    Now, this is where SA comes into play.

    The free version of the site has some great tools.

    1. My sweepstakes. This is where you want to put your dailies, instants, weeklies... Then, each day... you go into your my sweepstakes and enter those from there. To put a sweep into the mysweepstakes, click on the add button at the bottom of the sweep listing in the directory.

    2. Personal note section. Also located at the bottom of the sweep listing is a place you can put notes to just yourself. This includes entry time (for 24 hour sweeps) codes, answers...

    3. Comments. This is where you will find comments from other members about the sweep. If there is a problem with a sweep members will post here to notify other members....

    4. Sweeps Pop. In mysweeps, you will notice a button, at the top of the page, called sweepspop. This is amazing. You hit the button, and a drop down menu will open. Click on check all then launch. All sweeps on that page will open at once so that you don't have to individually open the pages. This really speeds up the process.

    5. Once you are settled, consider upgrading to Sweepsplus. There you can create your own sweeps categories. This is an amazing feature. By organzing your sweeps in a way that makes sense to you, it really speeds up your entries.

    I hope this makes sense. Sweepscheck is the most valuable feature to me as it tells me what I have already looked at and can now ignore because I have either acted on it, put it into my sweeps and/or chosen to ignore it.

    Good luck to you. If you have any questions, please let us know. SA has a very helpful membership. Just watch out for Amyshulk. Her sweeping methods are out of control. :laughing:

    Re: SA Features How To

    I hope I'm posting this in the right place, but just had to let people know (because I had never tried it) that the sweepspop thing that opens all your sweeps that you saved is SUCH A TIME SAVER!!!!! I can't believe I didn't take the time to use this feature before! I have 10 pages of dailies and it could take me all day (between sitting at small periods of time over the day) and I just completed 10 pages of dailies in about an hour and 15 minutes!!!! That's awesome!!! Sweepsadvantage is such an awesome site!!! Oh and if you need help with it theres a help button that explains it in detail!!!

    mmartin030 - it is cool, huh? I posted on it here:

    For the past few weeks we have been working on some new tools that will help
    speed up sweepstakes entry. To address this you will see a new menu option
    in category pages, search results, expiring sweepstakes, my sweepstakes, etc.

    The menu option is called "Advanced Options" . If you click this link you will
    get a drop down menu.

    The first few menu options called SweepsPop will work together and enable
    SA members to quickly launch all the sweepstakes on a page in a new window/tab
    or allow you to select individual sweepstakes to "Pop" open.

    This is how SweepsPop works.

    1. Click the Advanced Options link.

    2. Click "Enable SweepsPop Boxes" .
    ( This will add a check box on the current page for each sweepstakes listed on the page ) .

    3. Click "Check all SweepsPop" .
    ( This will check off all the SweepsPop boxes on the page)

    [glow=red,2,300]* This next step is only to be used if your computer is able to handle multiple windows open at the same time. This may slow older systems down or possible make your web browser unresponsive. Please use at your own risk. [/glow]

    4. Click "Launch SweepsPop" .
    ( This will open every sweepstakes that you have checked off in a new window or in a new tab if you
    use the Tabs feature in the latest version of Internet Explorer or Firefox ) .

    Additional SweepsPop Options

    1. Uncheck all SweepsPop - This will uncheck all the SweepsPop check boxes on the current page.
    2. Disable SweepsPop - Will make the SweepsPop functionality disabled or disappear for the current page.


    New SweepsCheck Features

    On the Advanced Options menu you will find (2) new SweepsCheck features.

    1. Check all SweepsCheck - This option will check off every SweepsCheck box on the current page.
    2. Uncheck all SweepsCheck - This option will uncheck every SweepsCheck box on the current page.

    * These options can become particularly useful for daily entry sweepstakes.

    We hope you like the new features. By the Way... they are 100% Free as always!

    Facebook & twitter contests will not save because they only have a place to be saved in plus - you either save them to that category in the drop-down, or into whichever category you name.


    facebook doesn't run sweepstakes - it's just another sweeps platform - sponsors choose to use it because it is so popular.

    At 1st, it was just lesser known/local sponsors. Now it runs the gamut from those lesser known/local to national/well known sponsors, so we have to make sure we read the rules - some will say you have to pick up the prize!

    Still others will offer prizes to all, but only provide them in certain states, so i *always* check out the sponsor before i enter!

    Change to Access for Expiring Sweepstakes on Sweepstakes Advantage

    This change was 100% necessary to keep the sweepstakes on SA Free. We've rolled out new features and options for free since 1997 and this is no longer feasible
    especially in this economy. It takes many people and costly technologies to keep the site running an updated. All the sweepstakes are still accessible on the other sections of the site.
    The expiring sweepstakes section is being reserved for the Plus members who are directly supporting the site. Sorry for the inconvenience but we have to ensure the site will
    be around for everyone in the future.

    * Please refrain from negative comments on the forum or facebook as these will be removed. Not adhering to this may lead to account termination.
