Just what it says. In the United States it is required that any sponsor running a sweepstakes not require any form of financial compensation in order to enter. If they did require you to make a purchase or compensate them financially it would be, technically, gambling. This is, of course, illegal in the US.
If you do find a sweepstakes that requires you to make a purchase you should contact the Federal Trade Commission and report it.
