Tips for entering surveys...

I'm sure most of you have entered a sweepstakes or two in your lifetime and some of this might seem like common sense, but I figure better safe than sorry. After all if there's no such thing as a dumb question, doesn't the same go for answers?

Most importantly make sure the information you are entering is accurate. After all why waste your time filling out the entry form only to win and not be able to qualify for your winnings. If there are discrepancies on your entry form, it could very well disqualify you.

  1. Make sure that you can legally verify the name that you use. Most sponsors of sweepstakes will require a notarized affidavit before they will officially name a winner.
  2. When filling out your address, make sure it's a street address and not a P.O. Box. Most sweepstakes do not allow a P.O. Box. This is for a couple of reasons. One, they will usually use a delivery company to deliver the prizes. Also it is an easy way to enforce rules such as one entry per household.
  3. When required use a phone number that you can be reached at during the day. Many sponsors will not leave a message when making a notification call.
  4. If you are like me and are going to be entering a lot of sweepstakes, I recommend opening an email account specifically for sweepstakes. This will cut down on spam that you might receive in your regular e-mail account. Also it makes it easier for you to notice the win notifications.

I hope you find this helpful.

Good Luck!!!
