Home » Quick Contest Checklist: How To Start Entering Contests

Today, I wanted to chat about something super exciting—winning awesome prizes. I mean, who doesn’t love the thrill of a good contest, right? Whether it’s a shiny new gadget, a cozy weekend getaway, or a year’s supply of poutine (a Canuck can dream!), the chance to snag something cool for free always gets me pumped.

First off, let’s talk about why contests are so darn fun. There’s this amazing rush of adrenaline when you enter your name and hit that submit button. It’s like playing the lottery but without the risk of losing your hard-earned loonies and toonies.

And let’s not forget the joy of imagining what you’d do if you won. Picture yourself lounging in a Muskoka chair by the lake, courtesy of that epic giveaway you just entered. Pretty sweet, right?

Now, I know what you’re thinking—how do I actually win these things?

Well, here are a few tips from someone who’s entered more contests than I can count:

Follow Your Favourite Brands on Social Media

This is a big one. Companies love to reward their loyal followers with exclusive giveaways. Whether it’s your local Tim Hortons or Robin’s Donuts coffee shop or a big-name brand like Kraft Canada, keep an eye on their social media pages. You never know when they’ll announce a surprise contest! We have extra categories for the ever-popular Facebook and Instagram giveaways right here on our website! If you love Social Media contests as much as I do, you will enjoy learning more in our article How to Win Awesome Prizes Using Instagram!

Enter Regularly:

Consistency is key, my friends. The more contests you enter, the better your chances of winning. Set aside a few minutes each day to search for new contests and enter them. It’s like fishing in our beautiful Canadian lakes—you gotta keep casting your line to catch the big one! And we are making this one easier for you as well, we the addition of out daily entry list on Contestscoop.

Join Online Contest Communities:

There are some great online forums and Facebook groups dedicated to finding and sharing contests. It’s a friendly community where fellow Canadians share tips and links to the latest contests. Plus, it’s a great way to meet new friends who share your love for winning! I have joined several groups and they can be extra helpful if you need to tag friends for extra entries. Unlike some family and friends who may not want to get repeatedly in Social giveaways, fellow sweepers will be eager to tag you in return and better your chances of winning!

Read the Rules:

I know, I know—who reads the fine print? But trust me, it’s important. Some contests have specific entry requirements, and you don’t want to miss out because you overlooked a detail. Make sure you’re eligible and follow all the steps to qualify. Read more about all the ins and outs about What are Common Contest Rules in Canada & How To Follow Them

Stay Positive:

This might be the most crucial tip of all. Entering contests should be fun, not stressful. Keep a positive attitude and enjoy the process. Even if you don’t win right away, the excitement of participating is half the fun!

Alright, those are my top tips today on contesting. I hope this quick checklist helps you on your quest to win some awesome prizes.
