One of my goals for 2017 is to enter at least 200 giveaways.  I’ve been entering giveaways for about three years now.

This post contains affiliate links.  Thanks for your support!

In 2015 I had great success and won quite a few.  In 2016 I only won two, one of them being our Ting phone that finally launched us into modern times with a smartphone that fit our budget.  I’m so glad that was the big giveaway we won because we LOVE the phone so much, my husband got one, too.  You can’t complain about a bill of approximately $35 per month for two people using smartphones.

But I digress.

Why I Enter Giveaways

One of the reasons I set the goal of 200 giveaways is because I’m hoping to win some items that can serve as birthday or Christmas presents or that can enrich our homeschool experience.

My Favorite Places to Find Giveaways

There are a few places that I look for giveaways.

Tightwad in Utah.  On this site, you can find low entry giveaways ending within the week.  I like entering giveaways listed here because I have a better chance of winning since they’re low entry.

Online-Sweepstakes.  This site has a huge list of giveaways.  I don’t use it as frequently because there are really large giveaways listed here, and I prefer to stick with those with fewer entries.  Of course, you may not feel the same as me.  Bigger prizes often have more entries, so if you want to win something big, this can be the place to look.

Facebook Giveaway Groups.  There are many groups on Facebook that share giveaways.  Some of my favorite are Homeschool Giveaways & Freebies, Blog Giveaways – List Yours Here!, Blog Giveaways and Sweepstakes: Come Enter to Win!, and Book Blog Giveaways.

Savings Lifestyle’s List for Giveaway Linkies.  This page has a list of giveaway linkies for every day of the week.  Unfortunately, some of the blogs listed no longer put up their linkies regularly.  That’s a bit annoying, but otherwise, this is a great list to utilize!

Journeys of the Zoo’s Top Linkies to Promote Blog Giveaways.  This is like Savings Lifestyle’s list, only it’s smaller and more up to date.

When I Enter Giveaways

I enter giveaways in my down time, which is usually early in the morning when I’m still trying to wake up or at night when I’m too tired to do much of anything else.  Instead of vegging in front of the tv, I enter giveaways.

I’m curious, do you enter blog giveaways?  If so, do you have a favorite place to find giveaways to enter?  Do you have any luck actually winning the giveaways?
