1. If you don't enter you can't win. So if you want to win something you have to enter. Now search for that perfect sweepstakes and enter it!
2. Read the rules! Super important a lot of people including me have not read the rules. Read them. I read the rules but sometime we all make mistakes.
3. Create a separate email address that you will check or know that you have a junk email address soon enough.
4. Check the amount of time you have to reply *most of the time it is in the rules sometimes though rules can be vague*
5. If it seems phishy it probably is. Resort to rule 2. If that doesn't work you decide.
6. If it asks for money for shipping it's not a sweepstakes or a giveaway.
7. Credit Cards are never needed!! Run away if you need them to enter!
That's all I have today!
