A lot of prize winnings do come by mail, as opposed to other shipping methods, so even when the UPS man doesn't show up at my door with some surprise or another, my trusty postman gives me a second chance to collect any potential winnings for that day. Recently I have had some nice items come into my home via sweepstakes winnings, and winning anything can be fun. Really, it most always is... I can't deny this.
The majority of the wins that have come into our home recently are for household and/or personal use. Albeit, though the actual dollar amount may not be up there, they are still an enjoyable win, and they do keep the flow coming in, in one sense, for what effort you have been putting into your sweepstaking tasks. In other words, this is one of the ways we keep on getting paid for our sweepstaking efforts.
Some of the items I have had come to my home as of late have been:
A coupon for a free can of Oust deodorizing spray. This was nice for when the three dogs would not stay out of the river in the heat (of course, the air conditioning had been out). It did a nice job with that lingering wet dog odor, so, yes, I will be likely to buy more some time.
A tube of Clean & Clear Steam in-shower face gel, from a postal entry, greets me in the morning to wash my face with. This I like because I have sensitive skin and it doesn't bother it.
A mini mag light was a nice addition to my son's camping kit. It came in its own case, with the batteries included... very nice. This came from a text-to-win game.
The cheerful, brightly colored "Wild Thornberrys" poster I've received from BellaOnline Giveaways is a nice gift for my granddaughter's room. This was a trivia question win.
The five dollars cash I've won from Transitions Optical in their instant win game will buy my lunch out at a local deli. This one was an instant win that is currently still running.
Various one-time music download wins (mostly from instant win games received through postal request) have sometimes offered nice additions to what music we have in the household, and given us a chance to try out new services without obligation. Though I do have to admit, that these at times will go unused, depending upon the compatibility of what service it comes from with what equipment we have.
Along with these items have been various percentages off from certain products with instant win games.
All-in-all, those necessary trips to the post office can also be fun, if not profitable, even.
