Twitter and Facebook are social networking websites – a way for people to connect to anyone worldwide. Lately, I am using these two popular social networking sites for another purpose: to look for online contests to join, promos being shared and online coupons (like those tableclothsfactory coupon code) being published or distributed by various stores, businesses and organizations.
During the first two weeks of this month alone, I already joined more than fifty online contests (I am NOT exaggerating). Most of them I found from Facebook although the majority came from Twitter. The prizes range from Paypal cash to Amazon gift cards to books or other random products that were being reviewed by the contest hosts.
I still have to win from the contests that I had entered this year but I’m sure I’m gonna win one soon. I’m kinda lucky in these online contests and giveaways, having my share of winnings in the past. Last year, I won about five times (if I’m not mistaken) and my prizes were products while in 2011, I won Paypal cash, jewelries, socks, salad dressings, mirrors, USB modem and other products.
Do you also join online contests and giveaways? Have you won already? Where do you look for contests to join? Have you tried checking out Twitter and Facebook too?
