Entering and Winning Automobile Sweepstakes

Jul 1, 2008
In the realm of sweepstakes and contests, where there are literally thousands of different ways to win prizes big and small, there are few winnings more substantial and exciting than a brand new automobile. Aside from vacation package sweepstakes or lotteries, automobile sweepstakes are really the contests with the most valuable prizes that you could possibly win. And because the winnings in automobile sweepstakes are so substantial, your chances of winning will always be lower than with other contests that offer smaller prizes. Still, there are a number of things you can do to increase your chances of being the big winner of a new car, truck or motorcycle.

The first is to research the particular sweepstakes program and make some decisions about entry requirements, cancers of winning and how fair the awarding process is. While it isn't always unfair to ask for some sort of fee or purchase to enter a sweepstakes, you need to realize that not all contests, either online or offline, require that you pay out of your own pocket to enter. There are really plenty of opportunities to enter automobile sweepstakes without paying a single dime, and they can be found easily by doing a quick search engine query. Do you really want to purchase an expensive product in order to get your name tossed in the hat for a new car? Luckily, you don't always have to.

Secondly, let's take a look at how likely it is you will actually win anything in a given automobile sweepstakes. In any contest offering a very substantial or valuable prize, it should be taken for granted that your chances of winning will usually be astronomically low. Expecting that you'll win a new car in a given sweepstakes is probably not realistic, but you can research what the chances are and only enter sweepstakes that have a better likelihood. Many sweepstakes do list the chances of winning (although it may be in very fine print), and if at all possible you should try to find this info.

Finally, make sure that you study the legalities of how the prize is actually awarded, who is eligible to win and how the winner is chosen. It may be surprising, but many people who enter automobile sweepstakes never have a chance of winning at all because their entry would be automatically invalidated. The state you live in, your age and even your profession could all have a bearing on whether or not you are actually eligible to enter a specific automobile sweepstakes. Always remember to read the fine print on any sweepstakes program, regardless of what kind of prizes are being offered.

The odds of actually winning a new car, truck or motorcycle in an automobile sweepstakes shouldn't scare you away from entering. Remember, the more sweepstakes you enter, the more likely it becomes that you will eventually win. Remain consistent, never give up, and above all, have fun entering as many contests and sweepstakes as possible. You might be rewarded someday with a brand new automobile of your very own!
