I gave up on these Meredith & Hearst sweepstakes after 20 years of entering to no avail!

Same here.

Same here, For the first 10+ years, I entered them religiously every day. Many of the sweeps were running for over a year. I finally came to my senses a few years ago to just not bother.

Me too. Glad to see I'm not the only one!

let's all of us who feel the same way meet under the big clock in Grand Central station at noon on Labor Day and have lunch!

I have an allergy for Meredith & Hearst words, nonsense multiple entries with no real chance to win. They get your email address and it took me months fighting with them to get rid of their spam. Really bad experience. No more their crap.

The worst. They add me to various magazines' emails that I haven't requested: Confirmed: you're in! over and over.

Hahaha, elliott! I think we all agree that there are other contests more worthy of our time!

They spam/email the heck out of ppl even when you unchecked notifications before you submit entry. Still email ppl after tell them to unsubscribe ur email.

You all have summed up how I feel about their sweeps/contests.

I don't enter anything you can enter daily on multiple websites, but I won a fantastic trip to Orlando from Hearst in 2019 and they were very easy to deal with, but I think it was from a single entry contest.

Not worth the time. I know someone will say somebody got to win, maybe. Has anyone ever seen a listing of winners in the past. I know I haven't.

If you are entering these contests check your logged-in status. I see that I enter one and move on to another of the same magazine and I am logged out! This happens once in a while, not all the time! Sneaky. I am beginning to get the attitude of those commenters above.
