My own experience says YES.... you can win awesome prizes but CASH, really? I had my doubts, thinking it must be extremely rare to win once, much less more often. But hold on to your hats because today is the first segment of my interview with Nicole Vosburgh.
In my opinion she is
ONE MEAN WINNING MACHINEand when you get through reading this, you'll know why she is the inspiration that fuels my sweeping train.
First, if your are not a sweeper, you're probably asking who is Nicole Vosburgh? To get an answer to that question and more I went straight to the source, Nikki herself and asked. Lets get started with my interview and see what she has to say. Yeah I'm channeling my inner Ellen today.
Aren't Ben and Nicole the cutest couple.
TS - Tell us a little about you.
NV - I am a 27 year old wife and mommy to our 4 year old little boy, Tyler. I grew up in Bucks County, PA and I'm still living in the area with my family. My husband and I met at Word of Life in upstate New York in 2007 and were married in May of 2009. It's been 5 crazy, but fun filled years already!
TS - How did you get started sweeping?
NV - I became a first time mommy 4 years ago and I've always known that I wanted to be a stay at home mom. With my husband still in school, I wanted and needed to find a way to make money while still being at home full time. I noticed that a friend of mine from college kept posting these small little giveaways for little girls bows, outfits, etc... on her Facebook page and it got my interest. I don't have a daughter, but I do have a little sister (who was 7 at the time I began entering). So, I followed my friends lead and began entering for those little girly things. It worked!
I began winning them and soon my mailbox became full of little girly things! Well, my husband wasn't impressed. We had a boy for goodness sake and here I was spending my time winning girly things. Well, I decided there had to be a way to win bigger and better things, right? I did my research and came to realize that there was this whole, huge community of sweepers and that they really did win...and boy did they win BIG things! I became hooked and a dedicated sweeper ever since.
TS - What is a good month of winning? How many prizes do you win?
NV - A good month of winning for me is anywhere from $10, 000 to $20,000 (you read that right - THOUSANDS) in prizes that month. I would say about 25 - 50 prizes a month.
~~~~~~~~~Wow I didn't even know that people won that much! I bet you'd like to see some of those awesome prizes Nikki has won. Well I've got that covered. Nikki was nice enough to send photos of just some of her favorite wins. Let's take a look.
Nikki's done a great job furnishing her home through sweeping. Setting a table with the dinnerware she won must keep her mind on entering more sweeps, even when she's not.
As if that's not enough to keep her focused on her favorite hobby, the food drives the point home. Look at the huge amount of steaks she won from Omaha Steaks.
Of course Nikki can't feed her family on meat alone. She's doesn't have to thanks to her "Winners Never Give Up" attitude. This
lucky hardworking, positive thinking gal was the Grand Prize Winner of a $250 gift card to a local grocery store.
Lunch is covered with a big peanut butter win from Peanut Butter & Co. You know she has one happy little boy.
Anyone need some milk to wash it down with? Ben must love all the money she's saving him through entering sweeps.
Since she doesn't have a magic carpet she has to buy gas for the trip to the store. No worries, she's won $500 in Shell gift cards to cover that.
When warm weather rolls around, Nikki takes her cooking to the outdoors. There's no shortage of grills at her house. This is just one of many, including the much loved Big Green Egg.
If Nikki doesn't win what she wants she can always go buy it for free with the stack of GIFT CARDS that she wins.
Oh' how much I would love to win a $500 Home Depot Card like she did.
Maybe $500 just isn't quite enough. If that's the case she can always cash her $10,000 GRAND PRIZE CHECK!!
And for those really big purchases she can just break out this bad boy for $20,000 *TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!*
Does this girl rock or what? I wasn't kidding when I said was my inspiration to keep going and never give up.
Now if you are thinking Nikki's story ends here, well you'd be wrong. We're just getting started. Today I concentrated on a few things around the house and $$ MOOLAH $$. We haven't ever talked about things like electronics, adventures and more.
Plus, I'm sure you're wanting to know more about how Nikki wins all these wonderful prizes, but you'll have to come back tomorrow for another segment of Nikki's Sweeping Story. She has an extra special treat for you. Okay, I'll give you one hint:
Nikki is VERY GENEROUS
Wouldn't you love to have boxes backing up at your door like this? I know I would.
I love hearing about other sweepers wins. It's what keeps us all going when we're having those dry periods. I'm really grateful to Nikki for agreeing to share her world of sweepstakes with us. Nikki's not a blogger but you can catch up with her on here on Facebook. Stop by and say hi, she'd love to hear from you and have you follow her. Heck you can even stalk her like I do. She's such a sweetheart.
**Update - you can read the 2nd segment of Nikki's story here.
See y'all tomorrow...
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
