Enter to Win Mail-In Sweepstakes!
You may ask, "Why enter sweepstakes by mail?" The answer will be, "For numerous reasons, but mostly because you love to play the game!" Entering sweepstakes by mail is one more way to increase your chances of winning, but it really is so much more. It's an enjoyable pastime, a fun hobby, a craft, a relaxing way to spend some free time... whatever you want it to be!
Though there sometimes are sweepstakes that only offer entry by mail, that's not the norm. Many mail-in entries are an alternative way to enter a sweeps, without having to make a purchase. This is the case in today's first two sweeps.
Often you can send for game pieces by mail, for things like instant win games - that you might otherwise only get by purchasing a sponsor's product, for this same reason.
Sometimes this form of entry just offers an alternative, to give all a fair chance (such as those who wouldn't normally be online). These are just a few reasons. The list might be endless!
For today's sweeps:
You can go out to eat at Cracker Barrel, then use the information from your receipt to take their survey and be entered in their survey sweeps. Or, you can mail in your information as per the rules, and be entered without having to buy the meal or take the survey.
You can take the designated cruise with Holland America Line to enter the next sweeps. Or, you can mail in a post card, per the specs in the rules. For these types of entries, I usually buy standard pre-stamped post cards at the post office, to have handy at home whenever I need one. I'll certainly send a post card out, for my chance at that hunk of real gold!
For today's final sweeps, you can text the key word MANGIA to short code 60856 to enter. This will also subscribe you to text alerts from Bertolli. What? Wait! No need to pay for those texts, if your cell provider charges you for them, just mail your entry in, instead!

I'll have to look through my stash of articles, and see what I can find on mail-in sweeps. I know I had a number of articles on this, however, I'm afraid that at least some of them were lost to storm damage ruining some of my electronics. I'll post what I can find at a later date!
