March 30, 2015: Search for Contests
Before you ever indulge in a big purchase, I have one recommendation…
There are a TON of websites, blogs and businesses competing for your attention these days…and they’re willing to reward you for it. In fact, you can pretty much win anything you could ever think of buying today.
So before you head to the store to purchase a tablet, TV or even a trip, why not see if you could win one?
All you have to do is Google the product you want, along with the words “giveaway”, “contest”, “sweepstakes” or “win”. Chances are, multiple giveaways will pop up for the item you want, but the key to winning is to find the most local giveaway possible. By finding smaller giveaways, the pool of entries typically decreases, meaning your odds of winning greatly increase!
It’s not a guarantee, but if the item isn’t a necessity, it’s certainly worth a shot at winning before you buy!
