Sweepstakes Ninja Review

I've been sweepstaking for many years now. I view it as a numbers game. If you enter enough times, you hope to win something. Obviously, there are no guarantees. But as long as you enter in sweeps with better odds than the HGTV Dream House, eventually your number should come up.

One of the things I learned early on in my sweepstaking career is to log my wins. I don't win much, but little things add up, and if you think you haven't won in a "long time," you just look at your log and typically see you really did win something just last week, or last month, or who knows when. It might be just a $10 iTunes gift card or a DVD, but it is still a win. We can't all win cars or trips, though we can certainly try.

January for me was another story. For the first time in a long time, I didn't win anything (or missed logging the win if I did). 2013 ended well though. Every few weeks at the end of the year, I won something of value close to $200 or more, probably like 5-6 in total. It started when I won a pillow off a tweet. The thing retailed for close to $250, for a pillow. I also won a night vision monocular (single lens binoculars), a wireless speaker, and a few other things.

One tip I offer people getting started, or just those begging for a win... If you want to win something now, anything, you don't just enter random giveaways. You enter giveaways ending today or tomorrow. That way you'll learn of the win sooner than if you enter a giveaway that ends in six months. It might be easier to enter that giveaway that ends in six months, and you might just win it, but it doesn't solve the problem of winning now. So, the sooner a giveaway can end, the better to enter, for the quick win at least.

Why do I mention all this in a review article? As I said before, its all a numbers game. And how can you improve those odds? Enter more sweepstakes, more regularly. There is a tool out there called Sweepstakes Ninja to help you out with that.

After the initial setup, Sweepstakes Ninja will go through each of the sweepstakes in its directory and enter you. It maintains a database of sweepstakes for you to enter, and you can supplement it with your own giveaways. Startup setup involves providing the data that would typically be entered into a form, like name, address, and phone number. As the ninja goes through the entry forms, your data is entered into the forms in just the right places and the forms are submitted. If you are familiar with RoboForm, Sweepstakes Ninja works in the same way, with the extra part being the directory.

The directory of giveaways Sweepstakes Ninja provides is constantly being updated. Many giveaways will stay in the directory day-to-day, to give you a chance to enter daily, while others will rotate out. The tool also provides you with the ability to ignore an entry. If you see a sweepstakes prize in the directory that for some reason you aren't interested in the prize, just uncheck the Use? option for that directory line. Want to see more about a giveaway, just click on the Click... option for the details

Here's a quick video that shows how to get started with the tool:

In addition to the main directory of giveaways, there is a secondary set of giveaways that are only available to Sweepstakes Ninja's members. Yes, I said members. You must pay a monthly subscription service to get the updated databases. The monthly price is $29. When you pre-pay for a year, it is just $249.

Overall, a great way to get more giveaway entries in more easily
