Winning It Weekends (4/24-4/25) ~ “A MOMMY MUST!” Instant Win Sweeps!


A Mommy Must IconWelcome to the THIRD edition of my top sweepstakes picks! I've scoured the web to bring you the best of the best out there! I've decided to organize these by category and so I will be making separate posts for each major type of sweepstakes. If you don't have time to enter all of the sweepstakes I list, I suggest you enter what you can in the following order:

  1. Instant Win Sweepstakes
  2. Single Entry Sweepstakes
  3. Weekly or Monthly Entry Sweepstakes
  4. Daily Sweepstakes
  5. Contests


Also, you will find some sweepstakes with the designation "A Mommy Must!" These are definitely the most "winnable" sweeps out there and so you should ALWAYS make time to enter these! A "winnable" sweepstakes usually has a very short entry period, or is super exclusive (meaning no major advertisements made about it), or is awarding a ton of prizes. These don't come around all the time, and so you definitely have to take advantage of them when you find them!

Remember, if you have any questions as to how a sweepstakes is run, who can enter, etc., then please consult the Official Rules for the answer. Also, if you come across "A Mommy Must!" sweep, make sure you take the time to enter it because only the most "winnable" sweeps get this designation!

Next week, I will dedicate a post to developing your sweeping routine and methods for entering a massive amount of sweeps in a streamlined fashion. If you are interested in entering more sweeps than what I have listed here, please do an internet search for sweepstakes, contests, etc. and you will have more than enough to keep you busy! Until then, good luck and happy sweeping!
