Last year, when I was just starting out this blog, I had joined and won in a lot of online contests. I had won paypal credits, baby socks, fogless mirrors, techie gadgets, jewelry and gift cards before. Is it high-time to go back to the online contests and giveaways scene right now?
I’ve seen a lot of bloggers post and share various online giveaways on Facebook. However, it’s been a while since I last won and I noticed that I never had luck with the Rafflecopter, which is the tool used by contest hosts these days.
Gone were the days when a lot of prizes are at stake in a single contest. Now, you really need to be super lucky to win the sole prize in a giveaway that usually has tens of thousands of participants or entries. Rafflecopter had made it easier to join contests but harder to win too!
I was browsing my FB feeds earlier and some of the contests I’ve seen were iPad giveaways, a flower decoration giveaway from a Quebec florist, giftcards giveaways and paypal credits giveaways. Other prizes were a set of coupons, candles, books, coach bags, magazine subscriptions and chocolates.
Hmmm… I’m still thinking about giving one or two of these giveaways a shot. Who knows, right?
