Win It Wednesday: Weekly Wins

As you know, I love entering contests and have won quite a few items. This week along with my weekly wins list, I am including a few tips to help my readers enter Facebook contests properly and fairly!

Facebook contests are fun. I have won a Mavea water pitcher, a few gift cards, an Munchkin baby gate and many others things by entering contests on Facebook. The difference is that unlike most Twitter contests, Facebook contests are typically one time entries. Generally the sponsor or company will require you to leave a comment and they will randomly select a winner or choose a winner based on creativity of the answer. Many Facebook contests require you to get votes or likes on your post. Here are a few pointers:

1. When you first sign up for Facebook, become a fan of companies and brands that you like.

2. If friends ask you for votes, vote for them. This way if you need votes, they will return the favor. I cannot stand when people ask me for votes and do not return the favor. I stop voting for them.

3. Look through your feed carefully, it is very easy to miss a contest simply by looking over it.

4. Do not copy other peoples unique answers/comments. This will get you disqualified.

5. Read all rules before entering a contest. Many people are disqualified from contests because they failed to read the rules thoroughly.

I have started the "Win It Wednesday: Weekly Wins" post and will post a new one each and every Wednesday. I will post the items that I have won in the past week and hopefully hear of items that you have won.

With that said, in the past week I have won:
* The Couponizer (Blog win)
* A $10 Dots Gift Card from @dotsFashions
* A Golden Ticket which enters me into the drawing for a trip to Jamaica!

That is my list for the past week. What have you won lately? Please comment below, I would love to hear about your wins!
