Another contest where you'll need to wait to hear from them before you can "Register."

Posted by: JBRITTAIN2 on February 1, 2023

NOT a sweepstakes when you can purchase entries under the cover of donating. Sad.

Posted by: DWLB1952 on February 1, 2023

This one started in Sept. 2022

Someone on the comment thread on the one posted in August said they won a Porsche doing 88 non-donation entries

I try

Posted by: stlclipper on February 1, 2023

how many of these donation/lottery sites exist? seems like a new one every week LOL

Posted by: mastodon on February 2, 2023

I have always been skeptical of these sites, but, in March 2022, I was notified I won, a Mercedes AMG G 63 Wagon, I took the cash option paid as Monthly payments of $1000 for 220 months, I admit, its not as nice as a lump sum payment, but having the extra $1K every month is a real help with bills

No email ticket yet!

Posted by: botlskru on February 2, 2023

They say it may take up to 24 hrs to get your ticket.
Mine arrived at 1 am Thursday (I entered Wednesday morning).
I guess patience is important here.

olwen29 darn, can't find the link but I copied the above from their website....sorry

Posted by: Platform on February 2, 2023

Congrats cranndrew! Thats pretty amazing. Thanks for sharing

Posted by: Funnyfarm on February 2, 2023

WoW cranndrew, that's fantastic! Does that work out to $1000 a month for 18 years? What happens if you don't live that long, just curious?

Posted by: ddharris42 on February 3, 2023

wow, congrats crandreww!
Someone from Canada won one of their sweepstakes a few months ago, so it isn't just US only.

Posted by: mrdoopey on February 3, 2023

Once you get your ticket # where do you enter it? Thanks in advance!

Posted by: SUZIEQ on February 3, 2023

@anyddharris42: If, heaven forbid, anything should ever happen to crandreww, I look forward to seeing your comment featured prominently on an episode of Dateline NBC.

Posted by: Tuor87 on February 4, 2023

Great won crandreww! I wonder if they all give a cash option?

Posted by: Kmn711 on February 4, 2023

Out of the 14 sweepstakes listed on the site currently, I noticed 12 state Cash Prize value.

Posted by: contestsweep11 on February 4, 2023

I am so confused - can someone help? I got my ticket number vis email, but when I go back to the site using this link:


I enter the ticket number in promo code and it says it's not valid. This has happened 2 days in a row. What am I doing wrong?

Posted by: wrxchic2002 on February 11, 2023

wrxchic, you don't need to do anything with the ticket number. You're already entered. That email is the confirmation of your entry. Read the email carefully. You'll see that your ticket number will be placed in the pool for you. Its like a raffle, where if your number gets called then you hand them your part of the ticket with the winning ticket number. Its a weird way they do it but don't worry, you're entered and this is just your receipt. But save the emails with these ticket numbers.

Posted by: Kmn711 on February 11, 2023

Super helpful, Kmn! Thank you!

Posted by: wrxchic2002 on February 14, 2023

How many entries are you all getting per week? I just added more of these contests to my list tonight, but some I've been doing for several weeks now. I'd say I'm only probably getting 3 or 4 entries a week despite completing the requests every day.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on February 26, 2023

I get an entry a day for each of the giveaways. Right now there's 10 we can enter. I requested tickets for each of these 10 this morning. They start to issue tickets after midnight each night. In the morning, I redeem the tickets and enter the 10 giveaways. Then I immediately request 10 more tickets. The next morning I do it all again (redeem the tickets then request new ones). You must redeem the 10 tickets and enter the contests for those 10 giveaways BEFORE you request tickets for those 10 giveaways again. If you request tickets before redeeming a ticket you already have, they will not send you another one. You should wait til you have all 10 of your tickets (usually by 3 a.m. each night), redeem all 10 of your tickets at the same time, then immediately request 10 more tickets (then you'll have the additional 10 tickets again by 3 a.m. the next day).

Posted by: Kmn711 on February 27, 2023

I will have to scroll the site again because I currently have 9 on my list. I've been requesting tickets between 1:15 and 2:15 AM except for the PST since that is when I am on my lunch break. I then claim the tickets when I get home around 7 am. I don't typically request a new one right away because I've technically done so for that day.

I need to mull over how to use your method in a way that fits my schedule. Perhaps I will leave them all for when I get home from work and make sure I claim tickets before requesting again.

Thanks for the info

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on February 27, 2023

I think it was down to 9 today.

Posted by: Kmn711 on February 27, 2023

Thanks Kmn711. I just need to figure out my plan for entry. I loved getting them out of the way at work since I have an hour to kill, but that isn't working out for me actually getting entries every day.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on February 27, 2023

The EST Tapkats links hit my email just after midnight and I requested my tickets then requested more. Frustratingly I've only received one of the three MST links.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on February 28, 2023

GRRRR didn't get the PST link either

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on February 28, 2023

I don't know what you're doing wrong. I requested 10 tickets this morning. I received my first ticket at 12:01 and the 10th ticket at 2:59 a.m. Now that I have all 10 tickets, I will redeem all 10 tickets now. Then I will request new tickets for each of the 10 current giveaways. Then tomorrow night I will receive my 10 tickets between 12:01 and 3:00 a.m. just like usual. Its the same thing every day, like clockwork. I've been doing it this way for awhile with no problems. I always wait til I have all 10 tickets (or however many I requested) before I redeem any of them. And I always request all 10 new ones at the same time. I never redeem them as I get them I wait until I receive them all before redeeming them. I don't know if that makes a difference but I've had no problems whatsoever in getting all my tickets every day.

Posted by: Kmn711 on February 28, 2023

The only thing I can think of is that I might have requested some of them before claiming the tickets. Since I didn't receive a link for some of them, I should get all of my 9 tickets early in the AM (based on your experience). I will hold off this time and do them all at once when I get home from work around 7am tomorrow.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on February 28, 2023

This morning went MUCH better but I was still short one. I got 8 of 9 with the ticket for the Shelby Super Snake for KC Aviation missing.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 1, 2023

Weird. I got all 10 of mine again like usual. Try it again today. If you keep to the same routine I'm sure it will start working the way mine does.

Posted by: Kmn711 on March 1, 2023

Thanks. This exchange has been helpful. It also forced me to check out the site to figure out which promotion I was missing since you keep mentioning 10. Perhaps there was one added since you entered today because there is now 11.

I added the National Sprint Car and a Shelby American Automobile Club. I think the Shelby one is new. Similarly name but different organization than the one I was entering.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 1, 2023

Yes, I saw this morning that its up to 11 but I appreciate you letting me know anyway. It usually does stay between 10 and 12 on average. Glad this helps. If you keep to the same routine of redeeming all tickets at the same time, then requesting new tickets all at the same time, it should go smoothly every day for you.

Posted by: Kmn711 on March 1, 2023

Up to 10 ticket links in my email this morning. 1 short but making progress.

Posted by: sweeps2021 on March 2, 2023

I only recd 10 too. Not sure why. I haven't redeemed them yet so I don't know which one I'm missing. They stop issuing tickets for ones that are about to end soon, so it could be that. No big deal.

Posted by: Kmn711 on March 2, 2023

I figured it out. The promotion for Shelby American Automobile Club is not accepting non donation entries via email. You have to request it, and then they give you a form to print and mail in. Definitely moving that one to my skip list.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 2, 2023

Thanks. So everything is working fine for both of us. Good to know. We are back down to 10.

Posted by: Kmn711 on March 2, 2023

Thanks again for your help. Nice that it is working properly for me now.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 2, 2023

No problem. Hope we win one day!

Posted by: Kmn711 on March 2, 2023

Me too. I'm really big on taking cash options whenever available, but some of those cars are really cool.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 2, 2023

Just got an email regarding the Bronco promotion that ended in February. Pretty cool how they draw and announce the winner. I wouldn't love my name broadcasted as someone winning a big prize, but compared to the companies that never announce winners this is a breath of fresh air.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 4, 2023

Ah, the price of fame. It's weird to see your name announced as a winner (on OwnerWillCarry). Can you pick me out of the "crawl" of winners?

Posted by: JBRITTAIN2 on March 5, 2023

Hey, I just saw you Jo B! Congrats on that win! Starbucks is great. I don't like coffee but their hot chocolate is awesome. My niece is addicted to Starbucks coffee. I always enter contests for them but never won. Congrats again, and enjoy your Starbucks beverage of choice!

Posted by: Kmn711 on March 5, 2023

My teen is a Starbucks lover as well. I've won some stars but never won anything big.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 5, 2023

Thanks! Talk about EASY entry! I just lucked out on this.
(I plan to try their bagged coffee beans.)

Do you know which of these have a cash option? Unlike Omaze
(which is gone, sad to say), that info is not as clear.

Posted by: JBRITTAIN2 on March 5, 2023

All of the promotions I'm entering with the exception of the Ford F-350 Truck have a cash option listed.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 5, 2023

Thanks, Sweeps2021 - I'll just have to search better.

Posted by: JBRITTAIN2 on March 5, 2023

Found the message board that I created years ago. It definitely died off.


Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 5, 2023

Kmn711, I'd like your insight on the users in the Salem Media referral chain. Those promotions typically show your referrals when the link is actually used. It's definitely a promotion that states that there is a bonus.


Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 7, 2023

In other news, if you wondered why there hasn't been a Rural King giveaway this month I received confirmation that they have discontinued their monthly giveaways.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 7, 2023

Kmn, check sweepstalk

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 11, 2023

Looks like they might be going to the mail-in option more moving forward, wonder if it has to do with the Omaze debacle.

Posted by: celzao on March 15, 2023

celzao, not sure what happened with Omaze but I think you're right about Tapkat moving to mail in amoe. Just noticed they added two more promotions that are set up that way.

63 cents an entry is definitely cheaper than the $2.50 per ticket cost for the minimum donation of $25 (10 tickets), but I have no interest in paying to obtain entries.

Posted by: Sweeps2021 on March 15, 2023

I never understood how mail-in entries were considered a "free" entry when you still have to pay postage. It looks like I won't be entering these anymore if they switch to mail only.

Posted by: celzao on March 17, 2023

In the olden days, all contests were mail in entries. I remember getting books of stamps as gifts so I could mail in my contest entries. Now the younger people don't even know what a stamp is. We are all spoiled with our smart phones and computers now. There's pros and cons of the olden days before computers and our current times with our smart devices. I'm really glad I got to experience both worlds. Back to the contest, I won't mail my entries or spend money on stamps anymore either. Yes, I'm spoiled now!
