Does anyone actually win these sweepstakes?

Whenever I log onto aa.com they're flashing something in my face - go to the All Star game, win 2 business class tickets to Europe. Does anyone actually win these? Do YOU enter them?

When I did a search with {'sweepstakes"} in the title, I found 27 threads,most of which ask these same questions. Just FYI.

Cheers.

Whenever I log onto flyertalk.com they're flashing something in my face - Does anyone actually win these sweepstakes? and Anybody got the "million mile sweepstakes" email? are examples. Does anyone actually read these? Do YOU read them?

Nobody has won them yet, that is why they are still flashing in your face.

I won a free RT ticket on Delta 13 years ago just by putting a paper entry into a box at the gate at JFK. The ticket was good for any economy RT that Delta flew in the lower 48 with no blackout, and I used it for a free trip to FLL for spring break.

Yes and Yes. I have not won any AA sweepstakes yet but I have won other travel related sweepstakes including one to New Orleans, just last week. If you don't enter them you cannot win .

Yes, winner here in a sweepstakes draw for points.com back in 2005. I won (and still have) 100k Alaska Mileage Plan Miles.

In regards to AA contests, I have entered many and so far, no winnings.

I won two tickets for filling out the reader response form in American Way Magazine a long time ago. Also won 6 tickets on Southwest through a contest in Texas Monthly.

Identifying the thread that answers the OPs question, then using the RBP button to ask the moderators to merge this thread into that one would be really helpful.

To be honest, with a premise like "does anyone win any of these sweepstakes?" I think that any thread on sweepstakes would be appropriate, even if it doesn't specifically answer or ask the same question, so I wouldn't know which thread to list as the most appropriate. Likely most of the 27 would suffice.

Your comment about RBP in a case like this is spot on, and I should have done that, in addition to providing search terms for appropriate threads.

Cheers.
