How to Increase your Chances of Winning Giveaways

Everyone loves to win free prizes, right? After all, isn’t that why you’re here? Winning giveaways isn’t always as simple as clicking enter. It can take time and effort. I’m going to give you some simple tips on how to maximise your chances of winning more giveaways and earning more prizes! Whether you’re a hardcore sweeper or just casually enter giveaways for fun, these tips will help you increase your chances of winning free prizes.

Take Advantage of all available entries

The more entries you have, the more likely you are to win. Although it only takes one entry, the more you have, the better your odds are of winning a giveaway. A lot of giveaways and sweepstakes will have multiple tasks for you to complete to earn multiple entries. Some may ask you to like them on Facebook, follow on Twitter, visit a web page, leave a comment, answer a question,  subscribe to a newsletter, ect. Make sure you complete as many of these tasks as possible to maximise your chances of winning.

Set up Social Media accounts & emails just for entering giveaways

Liking all of these Facebook pages and subscribing to all of these newsletters is bound to take up a lot of space of space in your inbox and in your Facebook/Twitter feed. There is a chance you may not actually want to follow these websites so all they’re going to be doing is littering your feed. I suggest you set up accounts that you use specifically for entering giveaways. Set up special accounts for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Email, etc. You will want to check these accounts periodically as websites will often use them to contact you if you win their giveaway. If you’re truly serious about winning free prizes, I highly recommend you do this.

Bookmark giveaways with daily entries

Most giveaways offer a daily entry option. Sometimes it’s only worth 1 entry, sometimes it’s worth a lot. Either way, you’ll want to take advantage of this option. Make a special folder in your browser for bookmarking giveaways that you will be entering daily. Set a time each day for you to sit down and complete all of your daily giveaway entries. Often times it’s a simple click of a button so completing your daily giveaway entries should be quick.

Enter low entry giveaways

The less entries a giveaway has, the better odds of winning. There are lots of great sites dedicated to low entry giveaways. Super Lucky has some great tips on how to find low entry giveaways that you should check out. Tight Wad in Utah also has a great list of low entry giveaways that are ending within a week which is updated often.

Only enter giveaways for prizes you truly want to win

This seems like a no brainer but there are people out there entering every giveaway in site. Gift cards to places they don’t shop at, trips they’ll never be able to take, cars they’ll never be able to park in their driveway. Entering giveaways is time consuming, especially if it’s your hobby. Spend a bit more time looking through all of the giveaways out there and choosing the ones that you truly want to win rather than entering every single one. You will be more likely to win prizes that you actually want and not fill up your house with a bunch of unwanted junk (which is better for the environment anyway).  Head over to the top right hand corner of our site and make a quick search using keywords for prizes that you would actually be interested in winning.

Share your referral link on all of your social media pages

Often times giveaways will offer you entries for each person you refer to the giveaway. This is usually done by giving you a referral link to share online. You may even be given the option to share it on your Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram & Google+ pages directly from the giveaway page. If this is not the case, you can simple copy and paste your referral link onto your social media pages and share it with all of your friends and family! When they head over to the giveaway and enter, you will receive an entry for their entry. This is quite possibly the best and easiest way to earn entries. I mean, I bet you don’t know one person that doesn’t love free prizes! Avoid being spammy. This will just annoy your friends and they will be less likely to enter the giveaway. Share your referral link once a day or a few times a week. I also suggest adding your referral link to your signature on forums that you frequent if they allow it.

Have Fun

Last but definitely not least, don’t forget to have fun. After all, entering giveaways is a hobby, not a job. If you don’t start winning right away or if you don’t win at all just remember to have fun!
