Enter To Win Contests

Do you ever wonder how people are winning giveaways. How they get all sorts of nice things for free? How contests really work? Well, I am about to tell you how you to, can enter to win contests. Entering to win contests is super easy, now it does take some time, but the rewards in the end are so worth it!

I have been entering to win contests, and giveaways for almost two years now. I have won things such as shoes, camera, mixer, gift cards, and even great gifts for the holidays. It is always a rush when you get that email saying you won.

I remember the first giveaway I won, I emailed the person asking if it was real. I was very shocked.

Anyways, let me give you a few tips on how I do it, and ways you can also enter to win contests.

First, set up another email account. This email account will only be used to enter giveaways. You will want to check this email daily, when you enter to win contests and win, you are only given about 48 hours to claim the win. If you fail to claim it in the given time frame you lose, and it goes to someone else.

After you have a new email set up, you want to make sure you have a twitter account, and facebook account. Now these are not needed to enter, but when entering to win, you want to get as many chances as you can.

After you are all set up, you can search on many different giveaway linky’s, to find which contests/giveaways you want to enter. I have had all my luck entering giveaways on blogs.

Below you will find a few of my favorite sites to enter at:

MommyPR – They always have some awesome giveaways going on!

Our Ordinary Life – Another great place to find some awesome giveaways!

Eighty MPH Mom – Has lots of giveaways going on.

Simply Stacie – This is a great blog to follow, she always has some sort of thing going on.

That is only a few of the ones I love.

After you have found that giveaway you are wanting to win follow the directions. Read the review, towards the end you will find out what is needed to enter to win the giveaway.

After you have followed the Mandatory entry, you can now start entering your extras. Not all will offer extra entries, most will though, and for these you need to leave another comment for each… If the giveaway states 2 extra leave 2 comments. Make sure you also leave your email address. If you don’t when the winner is drawn there will be no way to contact you.

Good Luck, and I would love to hear about some of your wins!
