This comes in handy more than you might initially think. First of all, having a dedicated sweepstakes email address means that all of your mail concerning this will be in one place. You won’t have to sort through all the mail in your other account. Also, this way it’ll be a lot easier to distinguish which emails are spam and which are actually true because you know what you’ve signed up for. Don’t just open any mail that claims you’ve won. They could potentially carry harmful malware that will infect your computer.

3. Carefully Read The Rules

If you’re a seasoned veteran, you know that you don’t always have the time to enter the giveaways and competitions. In that case, you also know that prioritizing and using your time wisely is of utmost importance if you want to win. As you know, there are two kinds of online competitions – a single entry and the daily entry ones. The difference is obvious – in the first case you only get to enter once, while in the second one you get to enter each day the competition lasts. With this in mind, if you don’t have the time on your hands, focus on the single entry sweepstakes. You don’t want to lower your chances if you cannot cast your entry each day.

6. Stay Up To Date
