Three Current Sweepstakes December 2014

facebooktwittertumblr

There are hundreds of sweepstakes online and in magazines, which means it can be hard to figure out which ones are worth your time. Here is a look at three sweepstakes that are currently running.

1. The Good Stuff

the good stuff

The Good Stuff are giving away Amazon gift cards this festive season so that you are able to get what you want without breaking the bank.

Entry into the sweepstake is simple as there is just an online entry form to fill in that is good for one entry. You are able to earn more entries by signing up to The Good Stuff newsletter, following The Good Stuff on Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest as well as sharing the sweepstake with friends. For every friend that enters from your link will earn you an extra entry.

There are four prizes. Three winners will receive a $100 Amazon gift card and the grand prize winner will receive a $500 Amazon gift card.

The sweepstake closes on the 25th December 2014.

2. Good Housekeeping

Good Housekeeping is a well-known magazine that is available online and has content for women from recipes to fashion. They also host sweepstakes.

The particular sweepstake I have picked out is there win groceries for a year that has a prize value of $10 000.

The reason I have picked this one is that everyone needs groceries from food to toiletries and sometimes it can be tough living month to month, so imagine not having to worry about one expense for an entire year.

In order to enter you will need to fill in the online form that will give you a free trial subscription to Good Housekeeping.

The sweepstake ends on the 31st January 2015 and is limited to one entry per person.

3. Redbook

Redbook is another women’s magazine that is also available online and just like Good Housekeeping they have a variety of sweepstakes including one where you could win $100 000 in cash which is amazing.

With this amount of money you can pretty much get what you want and more importantly what you need, you can even save it for a rainy day.

There is an online form that will enter you into the sweepstake and you will receive a free trail of Redbook.

The sweepstake is a long running one and only ends 31st January 2016.

If I had to choose from these three sweepstakes I would go for The Good Stuff, amazon gift card giveaway. The sweepstake runs for a shorter period of time so there will be fewer entrants and you can increase your number of entries easily.
