Blog Giveaways Galore!

I have ventured into the world of entering blog giveaways and am loving it!  I've learned about so many products I had never heard of and am hoping you will check them out too!

dB Logic Earphones
For all of you who care about protecting your hearing, here are some great sounding earphones. Head over to The Bragging Mommy and read about dB Logic Earphones with SPL2 technology. This technology "intelligently modifies the sound wave to closely match the profile of the original sound wave, while keeping the overall volume level at a level that can help avoid hearing loss."  Last day to enter is February 17th @10:00 am MST.

$90 CSN Stores Gift Card
Who couldn't use a $90 GC?  And this one is good at any CSN Store. I'd never heard of CSN before this blog giveaway adventure.  With over 200 online stores, they have a store for just about anything!  I'm into decorating these days so I'm enjoying the Home Decor selections.  But most of all I love the selections at the store since I am a teacher. to Cuckoo for Coupon Deals and enter to win this GC.  Last day to enter is February 9th at midnight Eastern Time. 

$50 Red Envelope GC
Yet another great giveaway over at Cuckoo for Coupon Deals!  This one is for a $50 Red Envelope GC.  Red Envelope is a great place for all kinds of personalized gifts. Considering the winter weather we are having where I live, it's no surprise that I like the Waves of the Pacific Bath & Body Spa Basket.  

I'll just pretend its summer and I'm on the beach! Anyway, head over to Cuckoo for Coupon Deals for your chance to win!  Last day to enter is 2/5/11.

Veronica’s Treats: Classic Mini Cake Pops
Earlier this year I remember trying cake pops when a child brought them to school for a birthday celebration. They were wonderful. Over at Granny Loves Gift Baskets you can read a review about Veronica's Treats: Classic Mini Cake Pops and enter for a chance to win! The pictures alone will make your mouth water. Head over and maybe you'll win! The last day to enter is 2/14/11. Good luck!

About This Blog

I have really benefited from the advice of my sister-in-law, the queen of freebies! I have learned a lot and have decided it's time to start sharing. I plan to share links to contests and sites where you can win stuff for free. Instant win games have been my specialty so that is what I will share about first. There sadly are people who have found ways to cheat in those games, but I have legitimately won a lot of great stuff (ipods, gift cards, gaming systems, etc.) and it really is possible. I have just begun to enter blog contests and will share links to them, but am not yet proficient enough to share advice on them.

My first bits of advice to those who are new to contests:

1. Create an email that is just for contests
This is the MOST IMPORTANT advice. I say this because you WILL get spammed and your email will be shared. Not all sites will share your information, but many will and you just have to accept that. You must use a real email address and a real street address when you register for games because this is where they will send the prize if you win and the way they will contact you about your win.

2. Be persistent
You win by random luck most of the time, so the more you enter, the better your chances. Enter as often as the contest allows. Also, even if you don't win instantly, there is usually a sweepstakes involved and you are entered in that as well. I've won several times through the sweepstakes end of the game (most notably $100 gift cards to online stores!)

3. Timing is everything
Most instant win contests are based on a set time for winners. Random times are predetermined as winning times. If you sign in to play at that moment (or are the first after that predetermined time) you win. SO...if you wake up in the middle of the night, or get up early, etc., that is the time to enter. I have a bookmark folder called "Enter in the Middle of the Night". In that folder are the contests I really want to win and which seem reasonably possible to win, ie. lots of prizes. I open all the windows in that folder and enter all the contests in a matter of minutes (unless I just really need sleep!).

That is my initial advice. I'll add more ideas as they occur to me. Be sure to look at the sidebar (Places for Free Stuff) for links to sites where you can win! GOOD LUCK!
