Anyone else enter contests online

In 2003 when we first got our computer,,I found a few online contests that were really good,,then got hooked entering contests online,,,
Since 2003 I have won over $18000. worth of prizes,,everything from electronics, trips, beauty baskets, concert tickets for my daughters, gift baskets to my latest win today of $1000. cash,,,
I guess I would have to say,,Entering Contests is my hobby,,
Just wondering if anyone else here spends time on computer enter contests,,

Last year I voted online for a best singer for a jingle contest-the person I voted for lost, but I won a Leadsinger Karaoke system for my tv--very nice and worth close to $200.00. My grandkids love it . I've not done it again, but I should try again.

CindyLee,

Up until the beginning of this year, I entered hundreds of contests everyday, as I was a stay at home mom. I have won ALOT of stuff, biggest two being my 6 day 5 night trip to the superbowl in Houston TX, a few years ago, and last year won a $3,500 diamond pendant necklace. I have won gaming systems, camping equipment, tons of dvds. cd's makeup. toys, kitchen appliances. LOTS of stuff. I love my hobby, but now that I am working, I just do not have the time to enter them, as much. I still enter and have won a few things since I started working. just not as much!!! it is a fun hobby, isn't it???

Yup, I use ALOT of my wins for Christmas gifts. I just keep a box in the spare closet and everytime I win something, just drop in there.

I do, I love entering contests. My biggest win so far was a $25,000 trip for 8 to DisneyWorld I won last year that we took this April. I have a win list on my blog of my winnings so far this year (well I have to add a few) but it is a wonderful, rewarding hobby. I even blog about it with tips and hints. LOL
I know what you mean about gifts- most of our small electronics are won and so many fun things that I just would not have been able to get without contests and sweeps.
I am not as serious as some (hours every day) but it sure has paid off for me. Even the slower years have been in the thousands.
Hope you win the prize of your dreams.
