    Default Sweepers?

    So these people that pretty much make a hobby out of entering online contests and only shine around during them, or show up once they start. Where do these guys get their info for these contests? I don't think I would have known about the contests here had I not been a member of this board prior.

    It seems that there are a ton of these going at any given time. I'm not lying I'd love to get my hands on some more hardware. Or awesome hiking/outdoor gear, there are just as many companies giving away outdoor gear. But I just don't think I have the time these guys put into the stuff. Unless there is some online source these guys are using that keeps tabs on a bunch of these giveaways.

    Just a thought I had after I noticed a guy that won a couple things, on a Campmor giveaway that I got some hiking socks from, has according to his facebook page won a bunch of other stuff.

    Its easy once you add a few choice freinds on Facebook. There are a few of us that are full time members that also fall into the category of sweeper. Sweepers work together in groups. Slacker and I were some of the first sweepers to really hang around on Pure. Then Trak and Jim. Then more stuck around. So when we share something it goes to a lot of peole. Well I dont as much as I used to because I dont have time.

    Add me on Facebook and you will see enough to get you started. Sandy Bruce

    Thanks guys. It makes sense that groups are stronger. I figured there was some sort of catch. I'm not sure I have the time or dedication to put into this, but if you see a friend request on FB, my name isn't far off from my name here. Thanks for the offer guys.

    I don't enter contests as much as I used to these days, but in past years I did and my best win to date was a trip to Australia a few years ago.

    I'd say that's a pretty worthwhile score. I'd love something like that. I'd settle for a hiking trip to the mountains here in the US somewhere too though.

    Oh, I thought it was because unemployment is so high, people sitting on welfare, they have nothing better to do but try and enter contests!
