Micro-PCs are tiny devices that act just like your old desktop computer or laptop would. is giving away one of these devices. This could be a great opportunity to replace your old computer or to get a great Christmas gift for the tech-junkie in your life.

Win the hottest toy of 2014

As I have talked about in the last few posts, autumn is here and the holiday shopping season is right around the corner. Every year there are a couple toys that end up being the most popular children’s gift of the season. I remember back when parents were searching high and low for “Tickle Me Elmos”, but not having children myself, this stuff is not usually on my radar. This year however, I stumbled across what might be the toy of the year.

If you haven’t seen a Xeno Monster toy before, it’s really cool. Essentially it’s a completely interactive toy with eight touch sensors and audio inputs that will interact with your kids. They can play different kinds of games with Xeno using a free app. It’s kind of hard to describe all the things this thing can do in a blog post, so check out this video of a couple kids reviewing it:


Xeno the Monster toy


Pretty neat, eh?  I don’t know what this thing is going to cost, but if it is anything like the Tickle Me Elmo fiasco of years past, I’m sure it will be a pretty penny. Today however, I wanted to share a contest to win one of these toys for your kids.

If you’re interested in entering visit:

Good luck!

Win a Pair of One Direction tickets

Facebook Competition


With the summer nearly upon us, there are a lot of great concerts happening and concert tickets are a great prize to win. When most people think of winning concert tickets, they think of entering radio station contests by being caller 9 (or 100… whatever the station chooses). In my book “The Art of Winning Sweepstakes & Contests”, I talked a bit about how I dislike that style of contest. I much rather enter contests through radio station websites, because it is easier and it doesn’t require the time commitment of being by the radio when the chance to call is announced. In addition to this, you might be eligible to enter in multiple markets, but may not get that radio station locally. For instance, if you lived in Boston, but there was a radio station in Springfield giving away tickets, then you probably are eligible to enter based on the state you reside. However, you won’t get the station broadcast locally and streaming a radio station over the internet often has a delay which would kill your chances of calling in at the right time.

Another avenue to go is Facebook or other social media contests. These can be great ones to target, because they are so plentiful. To kick things off I wanted to share this contest which enters you to win tickets to a One Direction contest in either Washington or London. I’m not a a One Direction fan myself, but kids absolutely love this boy band. The rules state that the winning person will get two tickets to the venue of their choice, though travel and accommodations will not be included. All the same, this is an incredible value because these shows often sell out making the tickets potentially very expensive items.

If you would like to enter the contest, head over to:

Good Luck!

New Sweepstakes Listing Site

Hey Guys,

I’m always on the hunt for new sources of sweepstakes and it seems like places to go for them are constantly changing.  This week I came across a new source I wanted to share. It’s called Sweepstakes 13 and it seems they have a huge listing of various sweepstakes. The site is free to register for and the listing options remind me of other sites I have enjoyed over the years.

Sweepstakes 13 breaks out their sweepstakes by expiration date, prize type, and entry frequency primarily.  Another feature that will be beneficial to those of you looking for sweepstakes outside of the United States is the “location” listing of contests. It seems like there is a lot of sweepstakes listed for our friends in Canada and the United Kingdom under that category.

Sweepstakes 13 is also running a couple sweepstakes of their own that are worth looking at. The first one is a contest for a $500 gift card that they will be doing every month. The second contest and one that I would really love to win is a trip to Vegas!

You can check out the $500 gift card contest by clicking here and the Vegas trip by clicking here.

Good luck everyone and happy sweeping!

Spring is Carnival Season

This winter has been long and snow filled for a good chunk of the United States this year. Some of you reading this might be getting even more snow right this moment if you live in the Chicago area. Here in New England it was pushing 60 degrees and I took advantage of it with a nice jog by my local reservoir.

Photo: Pics from the West Hartford Reservoir todayPhoto: Pics from the West Hartford Reservoir today

As is evident from the pictures, the landscape is still frozen, but as I jogged in a t-shirt and shorts it was clear to me that Spring is finally on the way. Spring brings some great opportunities to enter various contests. There are many festivals and fairs that take place during this time, which usually feature many local contests. While it’s true that you can get a lot of sales calls by submitting entry forms at these venues, it’s well worth it for the the great odds that such small contests offer. Often times, the prizes are pretty big!

One Spring inspired sweepstakes I thought I’d share with you today is from Carnival Savers. They specialize in helping with the planning of kids carnivals and all the supplies that go along with these events. They are offering a lucky church, school, or other non-profit the chance to win a $250 Kids Carnival Prize giveaway to help with putting on a Spring event for the kids. If this sounds like something that would be benefit you or another organization you’re affiliated with, then you will want to check this contest out.

You can enter via Facebook at:

Best of lucky and happy sweeping!

Win an iPad Mini!

Tablet giveaways continue to be all the rage this year.  If you haven’t held an iPad mini before, the thing is amazing! Go to any Apple store and you’ll see crowds of folks coveting these expensive little devices. Apple continues to be the best in show and here’s another opportunity for you to win one of your very own. What I like about this contest is that there are multiple ways to win. The best way to maximize your odds in contests like this is to enter in very way you can. I think creative submissions like the the t-shirt competition can be intimidating to some folks, but I’d encourage you to give it a shot. Flexing your artistic muscles can be both fun, as well as profitable!

If you would like a chance to win your own iPad mini, check out:
