Our Tips For Entering & Winning Contests

Entering contests can be a very interesting, exciting and profitable activity.  Millions of prizes are given away every year and now through the Internet, it has never been easier to share in the bounty.

As any contest enthusiast will appreciate, ya gotta be in it to win it! However entering and finding contests on the Internet can be a daunting task.

Here are a few tips to help get you started.  They’re aimed at saving you worry and headaches in the future, so take your time and have fun!

  1. Setup Free Email Accounts Setup some free email accounts and use those to enter contests. Any one of these will do, Gmail, Hotmail or Yahoo. However, make sure you always check these email accounts for notifications of any wins.
  2. Read the Rules Of Contests Carefully You don’t want to disqualify yourself because you entered a contest multiple times, when you were only allowed to enter it once. Even though some information about the contest is listed on here still read the rules on the contest’s website, we can’t guarantee all the information submitted to us is correct.
  3. Enter As Many Contests As Possible The more contests you enter the greater your chance of winning.  It’s better to enter 100 contests once rather then 1 contest 100 times.
  4. The More Prizes The Better Go for contests that have many prizes to win. If there are 100 prizes in the contest, you have 100 more chances to win something with each entry.
  5. Enter Contests That Have Fewer People Entering Them Those contest that ask for pin codes, UPC codes or anything that makes it harder to enter will have fewer entries.
  6. Enter Real Details I suggest you always put your real details in when asked. How else can they verify who you are when you have won something?
  7. Share The Knowledge If you know about a contest that isn’t listed on Enter it.ca, use the “Submit A Contest” button to send us the details about it. Also if you ever find a contest is listed incorrectly, let us know about it and it will be corrected as soon as possible.
  8. Register For Our Contest Notifications This will help you know when new contest have been added to the site.
  9. Have Fun! The most important rule is to have fun! Remember you do this because you love it.  If it starts to feel like work, take a few days off and come back to it later.  There will always be more contests waiting for you when you return.
