Cowboys, horse lovers, sports fanatics, and more, are all abuzz with the excitement of the National Finals Rodeo looming near. If you love a good rodeo, this is one you won't want to miss!
Today's sweeps offer fans the chance to attend, and to experience all the excitement first hand. The sites, the sounds, the smells... these are things you won't get anywhere else. I'd go just to suck in the aroma of horse sweat and leather, if nothing more! Why isn't this a cologne?
Still, if the rodeo just isn't your thing, plenty of other prizes abound, so there's something for everyone!

I recently received an email from "The Children's Book Review" (listed on the SD Book Giveaways page), telling me I won a runner up prize in one of their giveaways. The prize is a paperback copy of "Risen: The Battle for Darracia: Book 3", autographed by Michael Phillip Cash.
This was pretty exciting for me, so a big thank you to The Children's Book Review, and to Michael Phillip Cash! (FYI, I have no personal or professional affiliation with the site, or with Mr. Cash, outside of that of any other visitor. I have this particular site listed here for book lovers, and because I think it provides a valuable service, and because I think it is so important for children to read... and, of course, for the great giveaways!)
On another note, my youngest son and I had occasion to go out to lunch last week, so we decided to go to McDonald's to play the Monopoly game there. This is listed as a bonus on the "How to Avoid Sweepstakes Scams" post.
We ended up with an instant win of a free "McFlurry" or yogurt parfait, while we were there. Then after I got home and entered the codes through the above mentioned link, I also won a free one day video rental from Redbox! This was fun. Thanks, McDonald's!

Sweepstakes are so very creative. The names are unique from each one to the next, and the words used are just so descriptive. Most often, these things are right on target, when you think about it. Once you do, it is easy to see that talent is abundant in the world of sweepstakes.
Today's sweeps offer descriptive designs that really work. "A perfect holiday prize package" looks to me like just that! "The Ultimate Man Cave" also appears as such, and Disney's use of the term "Adventure of a lifetime" for its Hawaiian resort trip, certainly also looks true. For me, it likely would be one of the top three, to say the least.
So, today's sweeps are with thoughts in mind of those working behind the scenes, to bring just the right touch to this wonderful game, for those who love it...

The rules for this sweeps appear to have a conflict, as they state that you can enter once every 24 hours, then they also state that there is only one entry per person/email address.
