Places To Enter Contests Online

Updated on November 19, 2013

Online Contests Being Updated Now

November 2013

Sorry, I have been away a long time, very ill with Guillain Barre Syndrome. I am still recovering, almost two years after being hospitalized but at least now I can type. So, I'm trying to whip up a bunch of current contests for you to enter and end your 2013 with a lucky bang!

Wishing you much winning luck!

You're A Winner!

No More Snail Mail - Enter Contests Online

Many years ago, I would enter contests if the prize was of interest to me. That time predated the world wide web, and required filling out a form, perhaps clipping a UPC or two, and mailing it away. Nowadays, contest entering is quick and easy, thanks to online opportunities.

Back in those snail mail days, access to unlimited categories of contests didn't really exist. Now, there are countless opportunities to try your luck, and the number of categories seems staggering. There's something for everyone and every interest. For that reason, the listings are broken down by subject matter to make it a little easier.

The contests had only two criteria to meet before being listed in this hub. They had to be open, and they had to be free. Give any of these that interest you a try. You've got nothing to lose. Just be sure to read the rules before entering.

Good luck!

      Oh, Lgali! Thanks, I'm glad you left a comment - I forgot that I have to get the new 2009 contests listed in here.

      Ah, man! I only just caught up with these two weeks ago. Most of the contests end the end of the year, so I may not get some new ones until after Jan. 1/09. That Regis one isn't mine, but I think I'll play it safe and just delete that capsule until the first of the year.

      Thx for bringing my attention to it, CW!!

      Shirley, the KFC contest expired Dec 11, and I'm pretty sure the Regis Philbin (I love this guy!) baby contest is over.

      Oh, I'm sad....Canadians can't play....not fair.

      That's a great link, cgull8m! I think all the U.S. hubbers should take advantage of it, it's so easy it's crazy. Thx for that.

      I am not lucky with contests all I win is a T-shirt or a dollar or two :). I try Circuit City Sweepstakes here, they always have at least one sweepstake a day. They just need an e-mail. For entering contests we should use a different e-mail to prevent spam. Here is the link. http://tinyurl.com/2no59w
