During last year's freebie drought, I picked up two new habits.
- Making nude, moonlight dances to the Freebies Gods.
- 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?
- There are way more total prizes.
- 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 😉
