Enter as many times as possible. The more times you enter, the better your odds. It's as simple as that. Before you send in a million entries, however, make sure you know how many entries the rules allow you. If you send in one too many, you'll be disqualified. Additionally, rules may stipulate "one entry per day" or "one entry per envelope." If you're having to pay postage for each entry, consider your budget, and don't get carried away, especially if the prize isn't worth much.

"Congratulations! You've just won ten million dollars!" Wouldn't that be nice to hear? How about, "Congratulations! You've just won ten pairs of socks!" Well, it doesn't quite have the same ring to it, but it's always nice to win. If you like getting something for nothing, maybe it's time you won sweepstakes. Of course, sweepstakes winners are chosen at random like a lottery, so there's no way to increase your chance of winning. Or is there?

Speaking of overnight delivery: it's just not worth it. Like entering sweepstakes that require a purchase, paying exorbitant postage is a waste of money–money that could be spent buying stamps for a lot of other sweepstakes. If you're entering a contest (a competition based on skill rather than luck), you may decide that special delivery is worthwhile if you've got a great entry.

When you enter a sweepstakes, you run the risk of having your contact information sold to multiple mailing lists. This may be true even if the sweepstakes claims to respect your privacy, because mailing address information is not always considered "private information" such as your bank account number. Unfortunately, the truth is that there really is no such thing as a "free" when it comes to sweepstakes. In this case, you are paying for "free" prizes with your contact information, and though other profit generated by advertising. These kinds of contests are the bread-and-butter of spammers and the chances of winning anything valuable are remote. Even in cases where your privacy is supposedly guaranteed, it's quite likely that your personal information will be sold to a mailing list collector somewhere. When you enter a sweepstakes, you can expect your volume of junk mail to increase dramatically. In addition to a "spam-trap" email address, you might consider using a mailbox drop or PO Box (PO Box is cheaper) if you plan to enter a lot of sweepstakes. However, note that many internet contests now recognize most of the freebie mail services, and disallow them. One way to get around that is to have your own domain, and use an address that is easily filtered. Some contests will disallow PO Boxes, but a mail-drop address ("Suite #, etc.) is not as easily detectable.
