Contests are great, aren’t they? Who wouldn’t want to win one? Only thing is, they’re completely chance and usually there’s not very good odds at winning. Which still stands true, but I’m gonna tell you something. I’ve won a few. Ya that’s right, I’ve won some contests in my time, 2 within the last 6 months actually.
What Types of Contests Are There?
Well for me I’d split contests into two categories, ones with paid entries and ones you can enter for free. I would consider the lottery as an example of a paid entries type contest. I don’t really like those. I like being able to win stuff for free, so that’s what I’m going to focus on with this section of my site.
Then you could differentiate the contests even more by the types of entries and by the frequency allowed. The type of entry could be as simple as submitting your name and contact info or it could be as fancy as writing an essay. Frequency can also vary, anywhere from you’re only allowed to enter once to you can enter as many times as you like.
With any and all contests though, make sure you trust the brand/sponsors who are holding it. There are many scams out there that are just trying to get your contact info. All of the sites I share in this section will be legit and will be from my own personal experience, so you can at least put your faith in them.
Who Can Win Contests?
Well it all varies depending on the sponsors themselves. For the majority of contests I come across you need to be at least age of majority where you reside. For me in BC that’s 19.
If you’re younger than the age of majority, you can possibly still enter though because sometimes in the rules it’ll say you just need a parent/guardian to accept the prize on your behalf. I recommend definitely reading the eligibility section of the rules with and before every contest you choose to enter.
How Can I Win?
You can check out any of the methods I’m sharing in the drop down menu under Contests. Orrrr you can select one from below. (Giving you the choice, but they’re identical btw)
