Do you know somebody who is always winning online instant win contests and sweepstakes but you don’t know how they do it? First step: You must enter to win. And not just once'”as many times as the rules allow. Instant-win prizes can vary from a music download to a brand new car! You just never know what you can win until you try!
But what if you don’t have a code to enter the sweepstakes or contest and don’t want to buy a product to get a code? Thanks to the internet, a free entry code is almost always just a search away. There are many contest and sweepstakes sites on the internet and some are better than others. My favorite is www.slickdeals.net. Slickdeals.net is filled with codes that other users contribute and sometimes even tips for winning that particular contest. Forum posts on Slickdeals can be filtered to the type of contest/sweep you want to enter such as instant win or Facebook. I have won numerous online contests/sweeps using the codes listed on the Slickdeals site. Registration is free at Slickdeals and once you register, you will be able to view all of the forum threads and post questions or other comments.
Another great site that almost always has free entries to instant win games is www.mycokerewards.com. Most recently, I won four tickets to Six Flags MyCokeRewards using the free entry method. On MyCokeRewards, the free entry can be found under 5b or 5c of the rules and most MyCokeRewards instant win sweeps will let you enter up to five times a day. Every sweepstakes and contest has its own set of rules so be sure to check for the entry limits. Many other contests/sweeps also have a free entry method that either requires you to click on an alternate entry link that is within the rules that will either email you a code within seconds, generate a free code that automatically fills in on the instant win entry form, or lists a free code in the rules to use to enter the contest.
Most instant win sweepstakes and contests are set up like games where you are throwing, scratching, or spinning something and a screen will appear telling you if you have won. If you don’t want to play the game but just see if you are a winner, click on the “can’t see the game” link which is usually above or below the instant win game. Game winning times are predetermined and how well you score on the instant win game has no bearing on whether you will win or not. When entering, you usually only fill out the instant win form information once so repeat entries are a breeze because only your email/user name and password are needed to enter again. Often for instant wins that require a one-time use code, the company will list an alternate way to get a code for free'”usually by mailing off for a code that is either emailed or mailed to you.
Remember that no matter what type of contest or sweepstakes that you enter, always check the rules. Some let you enter more than once a day, others are a one-time entry, or even a weekly entry. And some let you win more than one instant win prize while others limit prizes to one per household. It’s always a great feeling to see the winner screen followed by a confirmation email. Glitches do happen and sometimes you may get a winner screen but no confirmation email. When this happens, the potential winner can contact the organization putting on the contest to find out if they really won. I had this happen recently on an instant win game where I never received a confirmation email after the winner screen. It took a week but it got straightened out and I received the tickets I won but this is not always the case.
Now that you have the basics of entering instant win sweepstakes — start entering and you may be a winner soon!
