The Devil is In the Details: Be The Winner When Others Get Disqualified


The rules of sweepstakes are often outlined in a block of small print on the entry page. Not all entrants are willing to sift through the details to avoid getting disqualified. For instance, some sweepstakes will disqualify a winner who entered too often because they weren’t aware of the entry limits. Many mail-in sweepstakes have rules about how to enter, like requiring a postcard of a certain size, and missing that rule would be a disqualifier. Increase the odds of winning by giving careful attention to these details. Create a clear checklist of the rules outlined in small print and only hit “submit” once you’ve crossed each item of your list.
