How To Use Referral Links to Get Bonus Sweepstakes Entries

If you have been entering sweepstakes for awhile you probably know that you can sometimes share a sweepstakes on Twitter or Facebook to earn a bonus sweepstakes entries. More entries mean more chances to win.

There are two ways to earn bonus entries by sharing:

  1. You gain an entry if you share the giveaway on Facebook or Twitter. You actually earn the entry just for sharing only.
  2. You gain extra entries – sometimes unlimited entries – for each person who clicks on your referral link. You only gain the entry if someone clicks and enters and hasn’t entered before.

Look for the Unique Identifier on the end of the link

A┬áreferral link should be unique to you. The first part of the link could be a shortener – goo.gl or bit.ly or some other shortener – but it could also be the regular link to the entry form. It should have something unique on the end that identifies you as the entrant. When you share and someone clicks and enters using your link you gain entries.

Here are some popular giveaway widgets and what to look for to gain bonus entries using your referral link.
