Beware of scams. There are plenty of sweepstakes scams that require money or a purchase upfront, but there are also scams where someone will call you and tell you you've won a prize but need to pay a fee or give them your bank account information in order to claim it. Don't fall for these tricks. Legitimate sweepstakes will not require payment or personal financial information.

Sweepstakes websites usually give you pertinent information about the giveaways they list at a glance, including how often to enter, who is eligible to win, and when the giveaway will end. Most directories take additional steps to help you find exactly the kinds of prizes you want to win, by letting you sort by the criteria that matter to you, such as prize category or entry frequency.
In den letzten Jahren hat sich das FES-Antriebskonzept nach und nach auf dem Markt etabliert, wurde dabei aber leider wertungstechnisch wie ein klassisches Turbo-Triebwerk betrachtet – zum Zeitpunkt der ersten Motornutzung endet der Wertungsflug. Der Unterschied zwischen klassischen Turbo-Triebwerken und dem smarten Elektro-Antrieb ist jedoch philosophie-bedingt wesentlich größer und bietet viel Raum den Segelflug bzw. den kombinierten Motor-Segelflug neu zu definieren. Eine Arbeitsgruppe der FAI plante daher zusammen mit einigen Enthusiasten einen ersten zentralen Testwettbewerb im sogenannten „E-Glide“, parallel zu der Anfang September in Pavullo/Italien stattfindenden 13,5m WM...

Speaking of overnight delivery: it's just not worth it. Like entering sweepstakes that require a purchase, paying exorbitant postage is a waste of money–money that could be spent buying stamps for a lot of other sweepstakes. If you're entering a contest (a competition based on skill rather than luck), you may decide that special delivery is worthwhile if you've got a great entry.
