You have more of a chance getting rich doing what you are best at than winning a sweepstakes.

I throw them out, based on a simple test; do they include a postage-paid reply envelope? If not, then that tells me that despite all the "You're already a winner" crap, I'm actually only one of so many recipients that they couldn't afford to pay the return postage on all of them.

I've gotten those things before, but not for years. Probably 15 or 20. It's just junk mail. It goes in the recycling box with the rest of it.

Sometimes I send them in, but most often I toss them. I don't believe I'll win, but it's fun to think about what I'd do with the money if I did. .

Throw them away.

It is SOOOO ironic that this survey came up when it did.... I would have picked "I will never win anything" but I DID win today!! Not a major sweepstakes, but I just got a phone call that I won a drawing for a free recliner. I'm very excited. This will be the first piece of new furniture I've owned in over a decade.

I just keep sending them in and dreaming' that someday I will become a multimillionaire$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ with all the money in the world and become another Martha Stewart and be well known like her with tons and tons of money, and I would help out some hungry people and invite them over for dinner at my home and just party away for a whole entire year and the Feds the I.R.S. they will not get one penny from my winnings dee hell with them

Wow how exciting" and timing is perfect, I have won before from Publishers, a magazine subscription I could not believe it at first

Delete them. I entered long ago and only now am I getting a bunch of "urgent" emails. I went in once and found that they want you to commit to pay a fee each month to play their games. I don't like wasting my time doing this. I have entered my share of "sweepstakes" including long ago when I used to try snailmail entries. What a waste of time, money and stamps. I feel I have somewhat more of a chance when I answer surveys and supposedly get entered into THEIR so-called sweepstakes. Now I just feel it's just too much hassle to bother with.

Throw them in the trash. I am not arsed with that.
Feeding them to the dog does not sound like a win-win situation.

I don't win at anything wry smile except sex with women, kissing up down their neck, damn i do good

I usually throw those away. I do buy lottery tickets for every Wed. and Sat. nights drawing. No luck there though.

I haven't gotten any in a while... but no, I never think that the words on them are particularly honest or that I'm going to get anything from them.

Never even open them. Right into the trash with the other half dozen catalogs and home refi letters we get every day.

Sweepstakes entries? I don't get them.

I absolutely HATE the spam from entering online sweepstakes. Hard copies have postage, time, and paper waste.

I learned my lesson... sweepstakes entries are too invasive, now I ignore them.

I don't remember getting any. Maybe they don't want me to win.
