Was notified of winning a sweepstakes on 1/13/21. I'm told I can't win another for a month (whatever that is, be it a calendar month, or 30 days from winning day, or maybe even notified of winning day.
Would like to know when it is thus smart to start collecting sweepstake entries again based on whatever restriction there is on eligibility to win. Seems like if I acquire sweeps entries today, 1/14, it would be a waste. So when is it not a waste.
Guess all sweep entries acquired "recently" are a waste based on this "month" restriction.
Thanks for your specific question! We just updated the Tip to reflect the answer to your question. You can only win one per sweeps so you can win more than one sweepstakes per month just not the same sweepstake!
I can't find a clear answer in the forums or Official Rules. Hopefully, the end of the "Promotion Period" (from the official rules) will be the date used to determine the month of a win. Recently, the last day of the month is the last day to enter a sweepstakes (also referred to as the end of the "Promotion Period"). End of Promotion Period date = Last Day to Enter Sweepstakes.
The end of the promotion period and the drawing date are available for each of the sweepstakes in their Official Rules. (This page does not include the instant wins, but, the instant wins are unlimited for the month.)
I'll admit, there could be an advantage to some rewards members that the win is counted in the following year for a December sweepstakes, maybe tax purposes(?) or the following month if they already had a mid-month sweepstakes win. However, I would hate to see wasted sweepstakes entries.
