I would never call myself a pro at winning things, but I’ve definitely won my fair share of awesomeness through blog giveaways. Some of the highlights are a Litter Robot II, SodaStream, skin care products, candles, food, snacks, coupons, DVDs, books, CDs, toys, clothes, pens, gift cards, paypal cash and more.
The trick to winning giveaways?
First things first…
Do you have an email you check daily? If not, get one! You’ll want to be checking this email every single day, no exceptions! Most giveaways offer extra points for subscribing to their blog posts. This just means that you’ll get an email every time they post and/or a daily digest of their posts. This can be annoying with some sites, but honestly I enjoy reading the posts most of the time. Usually they’re about coupon match-ups, giveaways, tips, life, funny stories, etc. Checking this email is SO important! That’s how you’re notified if you’re a winner 95% of the time! You have to get that email and reply within a certain amount of time, typically 24-48 hrs. after the host sends the email out with your mailing information and whatever else is requested. Stay on top it! I’m serious… you don’t want to check your mail once a week and realize you’ve missed an awesome prize because you forgot to check your email.
Do you have a Facebook page? If not, get one! And if you don’t have one, I’m pretty sure you’re the last one in the world. (Except my Dad, who refuses to get a “FaceSpace”.) Go… go now! You’ll make tons of friends along the way, and if you’re like me you like to talk and be sociable so it’s just more fun with more friends. Plus, you’ll find out about special deals, coupons, sales, etc. through the blogs you’ll be following.
Do you have a Twitter account? If not, get one! Twitter isn’t as popular to most as Facebook, but it can be just as much fun. You’ll need this to follow bloggers and to tweet their giveaway posts for extra points. Trust me, take the time to do this! Most bloggers hosting giveaways have the “Tweet About The Giveaway” entry option and usually it’s worth extra points (I’ve seen up to 25 extra entries!!). The best part of tweeting about the giveaway is that most hosts let you come back and do this daily! So that’s extra points every dang day!! Sweet, huh? We’ll come back to Twitter in a second when we talk about revisiting sites so stay tuned!
