How Do You Track Your Entries?

list taking

Contest Queen,
Can you recommend a good software program to track sweepstakes entries?

I started entering sweepstakes years ago.  Then stopped.  Now I am wanting to start again.  In the past, I used to use Sweep!,  a program that is no longer supported on the newer Windows operating system.

There are some sites (like online-sweepstakes.com) that are subscription sites that list sweepstakes that will also track your entries – only for one person, and only for the sweeps that they have listed. However, since I find sweepstakes to enter from a variety of sites, I am cautious and concerned about disqualifying myself by entering the same sweep twice, or remembering to enter as frequently as needed.

Do you have any recommendations on a good software program that tracks sweepstakes entries that can be used with either an apple OS or windows 10?

Thank you.
Kate


Hi Kate,
It’s why I don’t use a site, but RoboForm to enter. I take my chances with onetime only-ies. That said, the problem with RoboForm is, it doesn’t work well on iOS. You may have to reduce the number of places you cull your sweeps from. Have you tried Sweepstakes Plus? It also has a built-in tracker.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I do have access to computers with iOS as well as Windows 10.  Having the right operating system from that perspective should not be a problem.

Have you heard anything about Sweepstakes Tracker?  I think there was a similar program as well.  However I can not find it anymore.

When I was successful (years ago)  I tried to enter for myself as well as for my spouse (if allowed).  I found that entering at different points during the entry window resulted in more wins.  That is why having a way to track *if* either/both of us entered as well as when is important to me.

I appreciate your advice.
Best,
Kate


Hi Kate,
I have not used Sweepstakes Tracker, but many love it. Why not try it for $40? I think it’s always a good investment to buy what you need for your hobby.

What I did when saving contests in RoboForm was, to use initials to track my ex’s entries and mine. You may want to do try that too.

    I know a lot of sweepers track their entries…I’ve seen some people who say they just keep track in a word document or an excel document (that way they can just search the name of the sweeps to see if they already entered).

    Since I only enter for myself, I don’t worry about tracking them. I’ve noticed that a lot of one entries will just tell you that you’ve already entered and won’t let you enter again.

    Sweepstakes List is the tracker I use. You do have to pay for it, but it is affordable and is a one time charge. I only use it on my computer (W10) so not sure about iOS. Steve d”Adolf has given presentations on this at the convention in previous years.
