That’s right… Amazon giveaways help sellers get more reviews, engage with their customers and create a marketing buzz.

In turn, consumers can get free products just by entering to win.

This means that you can sign up to receive a number of free products from a ton of different sellers.

In this article, I am going to show you how Giveaways work, what you can get and how to win Amazon giveaways for free.

How do Amazon Giveaways Work?

Amazon Giveaways are free promotional contests where Amazon sellers can give away free products to customers by a number of different ways:

  1. Every X Wins: With this method, you will know right away if you won or not. For example, every 5000 sign up will win the giveaway.
  2. Random Selection: This method allows the seller to choose a random winner at the end of the promotion. They can last from 1 day to 30 days and you will be notified if you won.

To apply to an Amazon Giveaway, you must have an Amazon.com account and you may also need a Twitter account. Some sellers require that you follow them or tweet them on twitter to be eligible to win.

All you have to do is head to the Amazon Giveaway page by clicking here. This is where you can find thousands of current Amazon Giveaways that are added and updated every day.

Each giveaway will feature the product being promoted, who its hosted by, any requirements, how many prices are being given away and how you can win.

Some giveaways require that you follow the seller or watch a YouTube video while some do not require anything. Most giveaways seem to give away 30 prizes and are 1 in X chance to win.

To register for a giveaway, simply click the View giveaway link and a popup will appear giving you instructions on how to apply to the promotion.

Here is an example giveaway where you must follow the seller before you can apply to the Amazon Giveaway. Simply click the follow button where you will be redirected to Twitter to follow the seller.

Once you follow them, you will be directed by to this page where you can apply for the free Giveaway. You will be alerted if you win, but if you don’t that’s OK… A lot of the time you will still get a discount code or some other type of promotion even if you don’t win the Free Giveaway.

How to Win Amazon Giveaways

To win Amazon Giveaways, you must first be a registered Amazon.com user. You may also need a Twitter account as I mentioned above. It is also possible for bigger items that you may need to enter your social security number for tax purposes.

Winning Amazon Giveaways is a lot easier than winning the lottery. There are a few things you can do to increase your chances of winning a giveaway on Amazon.

The trick is to find Giveaways that have a good amount of prizes and a lower ‘1 in X chance to win’ number. That way the chances are higher than you will be that 1 in X.

Here is a great example of a giveaway that has a higher chance of winning:
