Contesting takes up a lot of time, Especially if you wanting to get serious about it.
But there’s lots of Programs that you can either purchase or get free trials on to help you on a daily basis ( Especially for all those “daily Contests)
Google Tool Bar – Will remember your passwords and your name, address etc. It’s very basic, but is 100% free to use all the time. If you already use Google Chrome, You will already have this feature built into your computer.
Robo Form ~ Is The oldest and what most contesters use, I’m not saying it’s the best, But I personally own a version. It will save your passwords, Help you create new ones, It will remember how you answered questions, surveys, etc. It will make contesting much easier.
Lass Pass ~ Free to Download. LastPass free version does not restrict the number of people or sites you can use it on like the free RoboForm does.
UPC Machine ~ Free to use. Keep it bookmarked for those times, when you need a upc code for a contest.
There are probably other programs similar to these one’s out there, but these are the most talked about among fellow contesters.
Always be Certain to Read the Rules of the Contest ~ as many contests do not allow you to use “form fillers”. They want you to manually type in the contest.
Some contests are simply designed Not to allow any form fillers, so these contests you will still need to manually.
Reading Contest Rules
There are rules for a Reason. It’s up to you the person entering to read these rules. Even if your on a forum, or perhaps a sweepstakes site, that gives you the basics for rules. Such as Daily entry, Quebec excluded, One per Household etc.
Lots of these sites may have an entering blunder. It happens to anyone ~ only Human
Read the fine lines of Prize Details ~ This happens all the time ~ For a Trip ~ There’s lots of contests out there “Where you can win a Weekend vacation” but when you read the rules, it does not include transportation ~ Also in the rules it will say it’s Canada wide. So if you live in British Columbia and the weekend getaway is in Ontario ~ You need to ask yourself “Are you willing to pay for transportation. Especially if the prize is non transfer.
One I won a week stay at an All Inclusive in the Dominican ~ It didn’t include travel arrangements ~ But it worked out that I was going to pay twice as much for travel direct to the Dominican without purchasing a full package. So this win never got used.
Another Example ~ Win a Trip outside the country for an event And it’s this month for example ~ But you don’t have any holiday time left, and you know you can’t afford to take time off with pay. Then you should simply skip this contest.
Age: What is the age that you must be when entering? The majority of the contests are Age of Majority of the province.
Whom in your house can enter? Does the contest specify One per person or does it say “one per household” or does it not say either way? If it’s one per person, then you can try and convince your spouse to join you in to the contesting hobby you are trying to get into, and let them enter into the one’s that allow “one per person”.
How many times you can enter a contest. Some contests are simply confusing on ways of entering. It may not be clear. Such as You can enter every pin, or perhaps for every UPC code. Or it may be a Total number of entries Like 45 . Another example is There is an entry, then a voting section. You can vote daily, but can only enter once. You may gain Entries for referring friends as well.
