Entering giveaways is a GREAT idea. There are so many online giveaways around, from giveaway gift cards, cash, cars, trips, gift baskets, books, movies, and more. Giveaways are a great way to stock up on many different prizes!
Tips for entering giveaways:
1. Be sure to read all rules for giveaway.
Some giveaways require a “mandatory” entry before you can enter the “bonus” entries.
2. Enter into giveaways you are truly interested in.
There are so many giveaways offered so don’t try to complete them all just because they are there. Focus on the ones that you really want to win. They do take time and there is no reason to get overwhelmed with entering giveaways you really don’t want.
3. Complete as many entries as you can.
Some giveaways require one entry and some giveaways let you enter in as many as 10+ times. The more entries you submit, the better chance you have to win.
4. Pay attention to low entry giveaways (and enter low entry giveaways the day of or night before)
You have a better chance at winning a giveaway with low entries than with high entries. (Example: 30 entries vs. 350 entries), especially if 10 of those entries are your own! I like to check giveaways that end soon the day of or the night before to see if it is worth my time to enter.
5. Complete entries before leaving comments.
To save time, go through and complete all entries possible before you comment. Once you finish the entries, then leave your individual comments. This will save time and the headache from going from entry to comment, entry to comment, etc. Write down on a sheet of paper the entries you have completed so you don’t have to scroll up and down to remind yourself which entries you completed.
6. Leave separate comments for each entry with your email address spelled out on each entry.
Most blog giveaways require separate comments for each entry. Be sure to leave your email address on each entry so you can be contacted if you are the winner. Some ask that you spell them out to prevent spam such as: thefrugalfreegal at yahoo dot com.
