What I've Won in 2010

This post is meant to inspire giveaway entrants and those who haven't started yet. I don't enter very often and I rarely do daily tweets.Yet I have managed to win an approximate total value of $3525 in prizes (I keep track of all the values, but chose to erase them in the list below)

I underlined prizes I did not receive. Some are a lost cause, but December ones I'm hoping will arrive soon.

Mom vs. the boys said...

wow, you've had some really good months! and a great year overall!

Sweet T Makes Three said...

Nice wins list! Congrats! I need to get back on the sweeps wagon, but have been too busy blogging.

Jen M said...

I love blog giveaways! I've stopped entering big company contests, because I have no luck in those.

Since I've started blogging, I definitely don't have as much time to enter anymore, yet somehow I lucked out in December winning just about everything I entered :D

~Dawn~ said...

WOW...what a list! :)

I have some low entries on my Music Together giveaway if you wanna try your luck and add another win to your list. :)

Marilyn's Money said...

Wow, how often to you enter?

Stephanie said...

Wow, looks like you've racked up!

Jen M said...

I mentioned in my post - I don't enter often at all and I rarely do daily tweets. So it is possible to win with just a couple entries into the hundreds :)

Belinda said...

wow thats an intense list!

Jen @ Blog Giveaway Directory said...

Congrats on all the wins. I had a completely free Christmas the past 2 years because of all the blog wins. Quick question though. Do you follow up on wins not received and how often?

Auqakuh said...

Nice! Thanks for posting this, Jen. It gives me hope that I can cut down on the tweeting and still have good odds.

I won the same Green Beaver lip balm and also haven't received them or been able to get a response from the blog hosts. That had never happened to me before (I'm new at this) so it was also reassuring to hear that I wasn't the only one.

Jen M said...

Jen, I am working on another blog post. I will share what I do when I don't receive a prize. But here's an answer I left for the same massage on Facebook -
It happens once in a while and usually it's because the person who the blogger dealt with has left the company and the prize has been forgotten. I email blogger if I haven't gotten the prize after 8 weeks. Then they usually email the company to ask what happened to the prize. Most bloggers will fight to get you your prize. Some... are not so helpful. If I get no reply from blogger after another month, I email again. If they say they emailed the company and got no answer - I stop right there. I've had a couple not so helpful bloggers and I've stopped entering their giveaways. But like I said, most will be really helpful! So good luck :)

Auqakuh, I wouldn't worry about the lip balm yet since we won it very recently. Only worry if you haven't gotten your prize in 2 months.

Deborah in Atlanta said...

I enter giveaways, but never seem to win much of anything. Maybe I just haven't hit my winners streak yet. Congratulations to you, you are THE BOMB!

Jen M said...

Deborah, make sure you are not disqualified by not following the giveaway rules. I wrote a post here - http://www.mysecrethome.com/2010/12/successful-blogging-101-tips-for.html
And good luck to you! Winning streak will hit you when you least expect it :)

Seapotato said...

wow that's a looot of wins!! so lucky, congrats!

Grocery Alerts Canada said...

Congrats,

Any strategies on staying on top of these?

Rachel R. said...

Very nice, Jen! I've found that I have less time to enter since I started doing my own giveaways, but I'm trying to become more efficient so I can keep up with both.

MrsPhilipswithoneL said...

You should do a blog linky thing for this where bloggers can sign up with the things that they won last year. That is if you want to, I think it would be cool :)

Misfit Momma aka Missy said...

I started a list when I started entering giveaways last year and I lost track of it. For a while I was getting a winning email every day! I have been entering less since I have my own blogs now, but still enter quite a few and win 1-2 things a week. It's really fun to win but I wish I had kept up with my list!

Glad you received the prize from my blog. I'm entering your giveaway now too!
