I just won 2 free six flags tickets! Thanks to this thread it renewed my hope in winning some day!

I tried and tried for the Universal back in May I think it was when a few dis people won. I won a $25 Publix gift card 3 or 4 years ago. I use my free entries only! I won on the 5th try tonight, first time trying for the Six Flags!

I did get some Universal tickets last year.....4 to be exact. I also just won some of the Six Flags tickets the other day. It does work it all depends on how you go about it. The sweepstakes I tend to stay away from. The odds are so slim.

Sure folks win. I have won quite a few 15 dollar best buy cards in the past and this year I won 1,000 dollar visa gift card. Also in the past have won 6 25 dollar master card gift cards on the text to win promo they run every year. (that one is also able to be entered with out a text which is how I entered) just takes patience/ also on the disney tix and southwest tix it is only one winner a day so try the ones that have multiple winners throughout the day. better odds. I save my points for when they have a great deals for free 12 packs. so just scroll thru the official rules for the alternative method of entry link

I only see instant wins that cost 3 points. Where do you find free instant wins?

Thanks so much for the help!

Log in. Click on the rules for an instant win contest. Scroll down to rule 5c and you will see a link that says click here. Put in the code and get a free entry. You can do this 5 times per day. I do all 5 in a row, then play the game. I never win, but one day I may.

Wow - thanks so very much! I don't like using points for sweepstakes, so the free entries are a great way to have some fun and (maybe) win some prizes! I didn't know that feature existed.

Oh, and when you go to the game, choose the option to use your free entry instead of your points.

Most of the instant win games give away only one prize per day. Is there a way to know if it's already been awarded for the day, so you aren't wasting an entry? (Says the person who just entered at 6pm today without thinking about it...)

Thanks DisneyEater! this is why I love this website. I've only entered the contests occasionally, and I'v eonly won the 10 bonus points, but I am so happy to be able to enter 5 times when I log on to enter points. I usually redeem my points on the free 12 packs, but I got my daughter the retro toaster for Christmas.

I won two instant wins this year.

4 1-day passes for Universal Studios

2 AMC movie passes.

One was won by using points to play, the other was won with the free instant wins entries. Totally worth playing!
