ONE: Always read the rules. This is my #1 entry tip because it’s the one thing people do the least. You do not want to inadvertently disqualify yourself.

TWO: Visit online websites that specialize in the hobby and have links to currently running promotions or sign-up for a newsletter subscription listing new sweepstakes and contests.

American Sweepstakes Aggregates

THREE: Join an online community. The real joy of this hobby is the people. You can find other contest enthusiasts in chat rooms, groups and forums, local clubs [ CAN or US ] and even conventions [ CAN or US ]. They share new promotions, answers, wins and losses. I have made real friends from this hobby and we get together whenever we can.

FOUR: Use all five entry methods: in-person, call-in, mail-in, online (especially on social media) and text messaging. Doing so will maximize your odds of winning.

FIVE: Enter, Enter, Enter. The more you enter, the better your odds.

SIX: Feel like a winner! You have to think you are lucky before you are lucky.
