How to Enter & Win Giveaways ~ Rafflecopter Tutorial


I thought it would be a good idea to give a quick tutorial on how to enter the majority of Giveaways on my site. I have gotten some feedback that a few readers are a little intimidated by rafflecopter. 
Some Info:

  • Any info given will ONLY be used to contact you if you win. 
  • All winners are chosen by 
  • Most entries are simple "follows" on social media for the sponsors. 
  • You can not win if you Don't Enter!
  • Every condition is spelled out. There are NO catches.

I don't know about you, but I like instructions that include pictures. So went through the motions with a current giveaway (Snowman Door Hanger Giveaway from Kute Kuntry Kreations) & took some screenshots. 

Before I get started, here are a few ways to keep up with Open Giveaways on Mommy Needs A Break.
Interested in Sponsoring a Review/Giveaway? Get all of the info HERE

  • Check out the Giveaways tab HERE
  • Follow MNAB with GFC Reader HERE
  • Follow MNAB on Bloglovin HERE
  • Follow MNAB on Pinterest (I pin all of my Giveaways!) HERE
  • Follow MNAB on Twitter HERE
  • Follow MNAB on Facebook HERE
If you find the Giveaway on MNAB's Facebook page, it may be posted with a picture. In the picture's description there will be a link. The links look a little funny because I shorten them. It will still take you to All you need to do is Click it!
The link will take you here most of the time. (Though Sometimes I may be sharing for another blog.)
Scroll down. Before the rafflecopter you will find info about the sponsor and/or the prize.
Log In. (Green Arrow) You can use Facebook to log in.. Easy Peasy. In the top left corner of the rafflecopter widget (Green Circle) is the time left to enter. If the Giveaway is over, it will say "closed". 
Click on an entry option that you are interested in completing. The most common is a Facebook "like". If you aren't already a fan of the page, you can click "like" right on the rafflecopter and become one!
Once you have completed the task, click the green button. You will get however many entries that option is worth. Sometimes there's a manual entry. Once you complete it more options will open up. Also look for Entries that can be done each day (usually tweets) You can come back every day the giveaway is open and rack up more entries by completing that task again.
Look for the Giveaway Disclaimer (usually under the rafflecopter). It will tell you where the Giveaway is open and other requirements to enter like age, etc. 

Hope this helps! Get to Entering & GOOD LUCK! Again, you can't win if you don't enter! If you have any questions email me at

 Pin It!
