Free Sweepstakes Roundup

Free Contests to Try Your Luck, January Week 3 🥇

I'd like to point out something regarding gift card prize. Even if the prize is for a brand or store you aren't interested in, you should still enter! Gift card prizes are easily swapped out for straight cash money with only a tiny drop in value. For instance, if you won a $1,000 gift card for a store you'll never shop at, don't worry! You could sell it on ebay or Raise and put $950+ in your pocket!

In other occurrences, you can get a check in place of the prize! You'd be surprised how many contest fine prints offer to swap out the prize in place of an easy check.

With that said, let's get to this week's Try Your Luck contest roundup!

As always, we keep an updated list of free instant win sweepstakes you can enter as well. These are different types of free giveaways where you find out if you won right after you enter! Also, if you've won anything form this series, please let us know! I'm dusting off our page of lucky winners 🙂

Like freebies, you should use a separate email address for entering giveaways so that your main email isn't spammed. Just make sure to check it once a week to see if you've won anything!

The recent HIF giveaway was so popular – congrats to Hiffer Renee for winning! – that I'm back with another.

The folks at TikTech have offered to give away this great Hohem iSteady Smartphone Gimbal Stabilizer worth $70! 🤳

With this gimbal, you're able to record amazing videos while walking or moving without any excess choppiness or “shaky cams.” Even better, the gimbal one-hand controls allow you to zoom, rotate, and change camera modes all without touching the phone. It also has a cool face-tracking feature for solo videographers and can easily flip between vertical and horizontal mode with the push of a button.

Winner will be contacted by email on Tuesday, December 1, 2020.


HIF Giveaway: Complete Nonstick Cookware Set GiveawayComplete Nonstick Cookware Set Giveaway

HIF Giveaway: Free Complete Nonstick Cookware Set 🍳

Free Cookware Giveaway

BOOOO! Wait, don't run off, I was just trying to be festive and announce a new HIF giveaway!

The kind folks at KOCH SYSTEME CS have offered to give away this free complete nonstick cookware set!

This giveaway includes the following prizes:

  • 8″ frypan
  • 10″ frypan with lid
  • 5qt stock pot with lid
  • 3qt sauté pan with lid
  • 3qt sauce pan with lid
  • 1.5qt saucepan with lid
  • 5 black nylon cooking utensils

I don't know about you, but I started cooking a heck of a lot more when the pandemic hit. I could have really used these pots and pans a few months ago when I was struggling to cook an egg without scorching it!

This cookware is incredibly solid with a double layer of nonstick coating for amazing food release and unbelievably easy cleanup. I love the speckled red look as well, which has a much nicer appearance than my all-black cookware.

Another nice feature are the Bakelite handles, which stay cool while cooking. They're both ergonomical and have pre-punched holes to make hanging & storage easier.

Winner will be contacted by email on Friday, November 13, 2020.


Free Instant Win Sweepstakes Giveaways

Free Instant Win Sweepstakes

During last year's freebie drought, I picked up two new habits.

  1. Making nude, moonlight dances to the Freebies Gods.
  2. Entering free, instant-win sweepstakes.

Only one has produced any positive results! But that didn't stop me from compiling a full list of instant win contests.

Since I originally started this, I've won 14 different contests for about $440~ in prizes! It's not a lot, but I only do it a few minutes each day, like while I'm watching TV or waiting for something to download. Over $400 in winnings isn't too bad with such a low investment.

With instant win contests, you can enter at least once a day, usually with nothing more than an email address. The trade off is that instead of winning a car or a house, you win a gift card or a prize pack.

However, I've had better results with these types of contests. If you think about it, companies never have trouble getting people to enter contests for mega prizes. Everybody and their cousin wants a free vacation, duh. But when companies offer multiple smaller prizes. every day, your odds go way up. Why?

  1. There are way more total prizes.
  2. There are less people entering.

So try your luck with these instant win contests and see if you can't pad your stocking a little this Christmas 😉

$100 Checks in the Mail Giveaway

Checks in the Mail Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post and giveaway on behalf of Savings.com and Checks in the Mail. However all opinions written below are 100% my own. I ate a bug once in the 1st grade. I also had a huge crush on Christine Taylor when she was in Hey, Dude. How much more do I have to share here?

Actually, let me share one more thing. I used to hate checks. Like, really, I hated them. It wasn't for the typical reasons though. Sure, I thought they were antiquated and I couldn't understand why anybody in their right mind would use, let alone prefer them.

It probably didn't help that my typical interactions with them always involved giving away money too. Making a car payment, insurance, probably a few repairs in there as well. Bills, which apparently come every month. Students loans! HAHA! I paid how much for what exactly again?! I still don't know.

No, the reason I grew to hate checks was because they were forced on me. Some bills could only be paid by check, because that makes sense. Others weren't as macabre, but they charged a few dollars to pay by card.

As a broke 20 year old, I didn't just pinch pennies, I named them and there was no way I could justify giving away Frank, Yolanda, George, Stephanie, Little P, Maryanne, Sir Elton of Dover, Little P Jr., and Winkin' Lincoln as punishment for rejecting what I considered dinosaur technology. “Fine,” I meekly mumbled to myself as I paid $30 I didn't have for a box of checks I didn't want, “I'll buy these, but I'm drawing the line at faxing in my payment!”

Flash forward a decade.

I don't know how it happened, but I developed a habit of saving. I squirreled money away, got a steady job (or whatever the heck this is!), and even *gulp* drank cheap liquor. When my lease ended in August, I kicked around the idea of getting my first apartment alone. I'd always had some sort of roommate situation, be it friends, family, or strangers. (There've been some characters. Remind me to tell you about Phil one day.) It was never a huge deal, but hey, I like walking around naked after a shower or drinking milk from the carton as much as the next guy. Unfortunately I learned the hard way both are activities others frown upon.

The lease I signed last month only had one signature when I submitted it for approval. My new apartment isn't perfect by any stretch of the imagination. Drop a ball in my living room and I know the exact spot it'll end up. The guy next door loves blaring the television at volumes most high orbit spy satellites pick up. Oh and windows are apparently optional!

But it's all mine 🙂 It's my first “home” that I get to make completely my own, something that excites me, and that is something I never saw coming in a million years.v

Landlords are probably one of the biggest holdouts in the “Vive la Checks!” camp. However when I pulled my checkbook out last month while signing the lease, I wasn't filled with hate or annoyance or even apathy. There was happiness and pride and excitement and holy crap it felt stupendous!!!

I'd never had that experience while holding a check. I'm thrilled to say those emotions carried over to the first of this month as well. I guess you can say I don't hate checks anymore.

 

Discount Code

I've never personally used Checks in the Mail and I'm not in the market for more at the moment, but I've bookmarked them and will use them next year when I run out. They've got good reviews online and an A+ rating with the BBB to boot. If you happen to need checks now, you can't go wrong with their current offer. New customers get 60% off plus free shipping via code GET60. Sounds pretty rad to me.

 

Awesome Giveaway Details

Most of us get monthly Valpaks stuffed with coupons, which is already great enough. However Checks in the Mail got in touch with them recently and offered to place $100 checks in Valpaks across the country. So make sure to open your Valpak ASAP the next time it arrives

As if that wasn't enough, Checks in the Mail has teamed up with a few bloggers to give away $100 to 10 of our lucky readers. You can enter via the widget below and the fine print can be found beneath it.

I hope all 10 winners are Hiffers. Okay, I'll settle for 9. So go enter, good luck, and just for fun leave a comment saying what you'd spend your winnings on! Just a warning: if you say Macallan, we might become best friends.
