Newsletter v. Spam

Simone's Thoughts - A question I always get asked by new sweepers is 'Don't you get a lot of spam?' and I always answer 'no.' Spam is completely unsolicited and many times dangerous phishing style emails. Entering safe sweepstakes will not generate this type of email for you. Now, what you will most likely get is massive amounts of newsletters and that is because even though you 'opt out' of many communications while entering sweepstakes, some require you to receive their newsletter and are just too good to pass up. This sweep is a case in point. I handle this by just unsubscribing from everything every January and by having a solely sweepstakes email.
