The Steps to Enter the Giveaways
Most giveaways need you watch a marketing video to enter. Some have no entry requirements at all. Some giveaways have more steps such as following the seller on Amazon.

Scrolling through the listing can be tedious. Especially if you only want to win certain things. Somebody has made a helper website. Giveawaylisting lets you filter giveaways with multiple options. This website also shows you the odds of winning in these giveaways.
Are Amazon Giveaways a Scam?
Do You Really Win Anything?
It is easy to be skeptical when promised free things online. Some people may wonder if Amazon giveaways are scams.
Amazon Giveaways Are Legitimate
Amazon giveaways are not a scam. The promoter must pay the cost of the items and the shipping charges to hold a giveaway. Amazon handles the process of shipping of the items to the winners.
Why Would People Give Away Free Things?
This Is a Marketing Tactic
To understand why this system works we need to think as a seller on Amazon. They are giving away a few products to a few people in return for getting many views. This is a marketing tactic.
People Can Grow Their Social Media Presence
People can require Twitter follows to enter the giveaways. Doing this grows your social media presence and gets your more views.
Giveaways May Lead to Sales
People also have the option of providing discounts for entering the giveaways. Somebody who enters something they wanted to win may end up buying that item instead when given a discount.
The Odds of Winning Are Very Low
Often many people enter the giveaways, and few people will win. You should think of these giveaways as digital sweepstakes and scratch-off tickets.
How to Win Amazon Giveaways More Often
Enter as Many Giveaways as Possible
Enter as many giveaways as you can. The people who win sweepstakes the most do them consistently and as often as possible. Doing this won’t dramatically increase your odds of winning but as some gamblers love to say, “You can't win if you don't play”.
Enter Giveaways with Better Chances of Winning
You could also only enter giveaways with better odds. At the bottom of every giveaway, the fine print lists your odds of winning, how you win, and how many people will win. The website Giveawaylisting also shows you this information.
Try to Win Free Books
Kindle books seem to easier to win if you want to win anything at all. But keep in mind most of the authors doing giveaways are newer or lesser known authors. This is a potential way to get free books if you are very patient though.
Are Amazon Giveaways Worth the Time?
Do You like Sweepstakes?
Do you feel like sweepstakes and raffles are a waste of time? Then I would not bother with the giveaways. This depends on if you want to spend the time entering and win nothing.
Don’t Forget About the Discounts!
One thing to keep in mind is the discounts you get from entering giveaways. Using these discounts is a great way to save some money. I have got some ideas of things to buy doing this myself.
What Are My Opinions on the Giveaways?
I Entered Many Giveaways and Did Not Win Anything
When I first found out about Amazon giveaways, I entered many. I did not win a single giveaway.
I like the Discounts
I am interested in the discounts entering giveaways offer. This seems to be a good reason to use them instead of expecting to get free things.
