Everyone likes free things, don’t they? Well, Amazon Prime members have the opportunity to receive tons of free content through Amazon Giveaway, because Amazon is just a constant gift.
The Giveaway program has been around since 2015, but for some reason, it’s flying out of control. The goal is to help sellers get reviews, help them interact with customers, and create marketing buzz around their products. In return, customers can win products for free. Sounds too good to be true? It can’t.
Here’s how it works
Sellers can donate free products to customers in two different ways: random selection, in which the seller randomly selects a winner at the end of the promotion; or the “every X wins” method, in which every 500th person (or any number the seller chooses) wins. The promotion can last from one to 30 days.
Some contests require you to follow sellers on Twitter, others require you to watch 30 seconds of YouTube videos, while others don’t require anything. If you don’t win, you’ll usually get an incentive bonus that’s some kind of discount for the items — anywhere from small discounts to s pretty big discounts.
Pro tip: Better things seem to be at the top of the list, but that doesn’t mean you won’t find what you want deeper. The more you play, the higher your chances of winning. So keep clicking —and hopefully you’ll win something interesting.
