Why Text-to-Enter Is My Favorite Type of Sweepstakes


Text-to-enter is one of our favorite methods of sweepstakes entry. All we have to do is follow the directions and use our cell phones to text a specific word to the ‘shortcode’ provided. This is, by far, the fastest method we’ve found to enter sweeps, so we’ve started looking for them, saving links in notes, and working through them on the fly. We can enter several sweepstakes while waiting at the doctor’s office or commuting on the subway. In some cases, you can even get a winner notification really fast. Doing a couple of these per day saves us time as compared to forms-based sweeps, and especially so over those with long questionnaires. Do make sure you have an unlimited text plan to avoid extra SMS charges, then get on it — you might be able to up your daily entries, and we all know by now: more entries could mean more wins.
