How To Find and Win Car Sweepstakes
So, you want to win a car? Well, you’re not alone in your desire to replace the 2nd most expensive item in your life without having to pay for it. That means if you want to win a car, you’re going to have to be both industrious and creative. Car sweepstakes are among the most competitive there are.
How Hard Is It To Win A Car?
Cars are, generally speaking, a big prize for any business to give away. Sweepstakes that offer cars as prizes will normally run for a period of months, rather than days or weeks, and they will be advertised widely.
We’ve found here at Whole Mom cars will attract 10,000+ entries when compared to around 1,000 for most prizes. That’s a whole lot of competition. Yet, if you work at it – you can still make those odds work for you.
We can’t guarantee that you’ll win a car, of course, nobody can do that but a strategic approach to winning a car is going to yield the best possible results. So, let’s take a look at how you go about finding car sweepstakes and maximizing the chances of winning.
Where To Find Car Sweepstakes
We’d be immodest if we didn’t say the best place to start finding sweepstakes with car prizes is right here on Wholemom. We feature as many cars as we can find and we spend a lot of time looking for them, so that you don’t have to.
Having said that, we also admit that it would be impossible for us to find every single car sweepstakes out there and if you want to hunt around for more, you should.
Firstly, we recommend a walk around your local supermarket or grocery store. Big brands giveaway cars more often than any other source. Grocery brands know that cars tie in with your home lifestyle and they’re very likely to run promotions on packets to win cars.
We also recommend that you read the rules on the packets carefully; some don’t require a purchase (make a note and visit their website later) and some do, and some require more than one purchase to enter. You want to be sure that you’re complying with the rules if you want to win a car – otherwise, you’re going to find that you’re wasting your time.
Secondly, we’d say keep an eye on car-related websites – that is car magazines and lifestyle magazines, in particular. These are the places that car manufacturers and car dealers are likely to run their giveaways – they know they’re reaching a big audience that loves their products in this way.
OK, by now, you ought to have a plentiful supply of sweeps to enter. You’re going to want to go through this process on a regular basis too – you’re unlikely to win the first time you do this, though we very much hope that you do.
We said it before, we’ll say it again. You can’t win a prize if you’re not eligible to enter. You can’t win if you don’t complete all the entry steps. It’s pretty shocking how many people fail to read the instructions.
If it says, “Winner must live in Atlanta, Georgia” and you live in Paris, Texas – don’t enter. They won’t give you the prize even if you do win.
The good news is that the more work you have to do at the application stage, the fewer people who will enter. While most car prizes have fairly simple entry processes – some expect you to do a bit more (complete a survey or answer a few “skill based” questions) and that’s good news.
People hate putting in effort when it comes to sweepstakes and you’re going to find that sweepstakes with tough entry conditions greatly improve your chances of winning – as long, of course, as you follow the rules.
We’ve probably said that enough for now, so let’s move on and see how you can improve your chances of winning even more.
This is the number one game changer at your disposal when it comes to influencing the odds of winning a sweepstakes. Many sweepstakes will give you bonus entries for referring other people. The best of them give you more than one entry for each referral and have no cap on the number of entries you can earn.
Whatever the precise rules are – you want to maximize the number of referrals you can get. Imagine you are allowed to refer 5 friends for 5 extra entries. Doesn’t sound like a lot does it?
But if there are 10,000 entries to the sweepstakes to win that car. 5 extra entries give you 6 times the chances of winning that you had before. It’s not a huge increase but it’s a real and meaningful one.
If it were easy to win cars, we wouldn’t be writing this article – we’d just be winning cars. However, because something isn’t easy it doesn’t mean that it’s not worthwhile.
The number one way to improve your chances of winning a car (and indeed, any kind of sweepstakes) is to enter a lot of sweepstakes. The more times you enter, the more times you give random chance the opportunity to help you out.
It’s important to remember that the prizes in sweepstakes, particularly those offered in the United States, have to be given away as long as there are entries in accordance with their rules.
That means that every day there are cars being given to lucky winners around the country. There’s no reason that shouldn’t be you.
If you want to win a car – focus on winning a car. Track down every car sweepstake that you can find and enter that. Make sure you obey the rules, that you get as many referral entries as possible (if they are allowed) and don’t give up. We know you can do it.
