How to Get the Best Chances of Having Your Giveaway Added to About.com's Sweepstakes Listings

About.com Contests & Sweepstakes does not list every sweepstakes available on the internet. Rather, we aim to help people find free online sweepstakes and contests that are worth entering: the best and most trustworthy giveaways in a wide range of categories.

Here are a few types of sweepstakes that we avoid:

  1. Sweepstakes with Low-Value Prizes. There's nothing wrong with giving away small prizes. In fact, many smaller giveaways are very attractive, with great odds. But there are plenty of sweepstakes directories out there that list every available giveaway. We're looking for especially attractive prizes.
     
  2. Sweepstakes Without Clear Rules. Rules are a contract between the company sponsoring the sweepstakes and the entrant. Without them, entrants lack important information, like details about the prize, who is sponsoring the giveaway, how often they can legitimately enter, when the winner will be announced, and more.
     
  1. Sweepstakes Without a Privacy Policy. The privacy policy lets entrants know what will happen with the information they submit. We don't recommend entering sweepstakes without making sure that they have a good privacy policy, and we do our best to avoid promoting sweepstakes without them.
     
  2. Sweepstakes with a Very Short Entry Period. A quick-running giveaway can be a lot of fun to enter, but it's rare that we'll add sweepstakes to our listings that have a short shelf life. Sandra's About Sweepstakes Facebook Page would be a better place to post those kinds of giveaways.
     
  1. Contests that Charge a Fee to Enter. In America, it's legal to charge a fee to enter contests (but not sweepstakes). However, we only list free giveaways on About.com Contests.

Notification if Sweepstakes Are Added

Unfortunately, we receive too many sweepstakes submissions to be able to respond to each person individually. We really appreciate hearing about all of the new giveaways! You can check the New Sweepstakes List to see if the giveaways you've submitted have been added.
