OnlineSweepstakes.com Website Review
Online-Sweepstakes.com (OLS) is a huge directory of online sweeps of various types and value from small to big-ticket prizes. It's a very well-organized site that makes it easy to navigate the thousands of sweepstakes listings. I've highlighted some of my favorite features below.
The index has sections for new and expiring sweeps, listings by entry frequency, type of sweep (i.e. games, contests, instant wins, etc.), and prize type. Naturally, some of these will overlap, but this system helps you easily choose the category you're looking for at a glance.
Each listing has pertinent info about the drawing including the expiration date, how often you can enter, a link to the the sweep and official rules for each one, who can enter, and a space to read notes by members or leave your own. These notes may include warnings about technological difficulties with the entry process or other helpful advice.
Forums and MySweeps
The site has an active and friendly forum community with the usual sweeps-related threads you would expect but also some for prize exchanges, computer info, freebies and snail mail listings and a catch-all thread for many different topics ranging from sports to recipes.
MySweeps is the site's tracking system for your favorite sweeps. Each listing has a minus sign in a red circle to the upper left corner. You can save each sweep you've entered into your MySweeps section by clicking on that red circle. This is a big help in keeping track of sweeps that have multiple entry options.
OLS is one of the oldest and trusted sweeps websites around. It's free to use but you can opt for a paid premium subscription which provides extra perks including access to members only sweeps, a private forum, a chat area and more. The site has Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep up with daily sweeps on social media. For this and all the features mentioned, it's definitely one to keep bookmarked along with your other favorite online sweepstakes directories. For more info, visit the Online Sweepstakes website. Good luck!
