Giveaways: Sweepstakes, Contests, Where to find Winners & More
2019 has more giveaways with hotter prizes than ever! Winning is awesome – there’s nothing like the thrill! There’s no better freebie than a big valuable prize! For example, we find sweepstakes where you can win a Tiny House, a dream home giveaway, money, cars, trucks (our fav was the Silverado!) There’s smaller prizes too, such as gift cards, Amazon giveaways, tickets to sporting games or your favorite team’s jersey, and so much more. Giveaways where only a few will win are sweepstakes and contests. In other words, Sweepstakes winners are chosen randomly, while Contest winners are chosen by merit, such as submitting the best tasting recipe.
How do Giveaways Work?
We find the best free giveaways with Mega Prizes sometimes worth millions! Or, we find the most winnable sweeps, or those with the most prizes. We also love Instant Win Sweepstakes games (IWG) so you can find out instantly if you won! Gimmie fans have won tons of great prizes in sweepstakes, including vacations, money, vehicles, and electronics such as big screen televisions, smart phones and smart home products – to name a few. Others have won new mattresses, furniture, lawn mowers, barbecue grills and other household items in sweepstakes. Even more have won smaller instant prizes such as full-size beauty products, gift cards, clothes, gasoline and food.

Types of Giveaways: Sweepstakes & Contests
First of all, the Giveaways are sponsored by us (we provide the prizes), or by other companies (another company provides the prizes). The sponsor is the one who pays for the prizes. Everything we share is 100% legitimate. For example, we share an Amazon Giveaway, also known as Bouncy Boxes. Those are sponsored by another company (although we’ve sponsored a few)! Some people ask if bouncy boxes are a scam, because they’ve never won one. They’re absolutely not a scam. As a matter of fact, if you want to sponsor an Amazon Giveaway, you have to pay for the prize up front and Amazon handles the rest. There’s literally no way you can scam the system.
What are the Prizes?
There’s nothing quite as exciting as winning a great prize. A Giveaway prize tends to be higher value than traditional free stuff & free samples. And, blog contest or amazon giveaway actually gives you much better odds of winning than buying a lottery ticket. Because, there are fewer entries, so your chances of winning are much higher! Also noteworthy, all sweepstakes and contests have a designated entry period. That means there’s a start date, and and end date. You must enter while the entry period is open in order to be eligible to win the prizes.
What are the Rules?
Due to state and federal laws, every legitimate sweepstakes or contest has a lengthy legal document called its Official Rules. The Sweeps’ Official Rules explain all of the legalities and ensures the laws have been followed in setting up, administering and fulfilling prizes. Likewise, companies such as Rafflecopter Giveaways and Gleam Giveaways act as an administer to receive entries and ensure rules and laws are followed. An administer or administrator does not sponsor (pay for) the prizes, they just handle the entries and formalities.
Where are all the Sweepstakes winners? Is this really legit?
Every legitimate sweepstakes or contest has its own set of legal official rules. So, find out how to receive the winners’ list in the official rules. Look all the way through, because it’s usually toward the end of the document. Sometimes it may involve mailing a self-addressed stamped envelope to a specific address. They will then mail back a list of winners. Other times you need to go to a website where winners are listed, after the entry period is over and winners have been chosen.
Do I have to pay for Sweepstakes prizes?
Absolutely not! If someone told you that you won a huge prize, and you have to pay up front to receive it, they are lying! Prizes valued at more than $600 will require forms to file with your taxes. And, you may be asked to sign affidavits, proving your identity as required by law. Even more ways to keep you safe; learn how to never again fall for sweepstakes scams.
