How does  Amazon Giveaway work?

Amazon Giveaways are free promotional contests and marketing tactics whereby Amazon sellers give away free products.

It works in two ways;

  • Every X Wins - With this method, you will know straight away if you won or not.

  • Random Selection - This method allows the seller to choose a random winner at the end of the promotion. They can last from 1 to 30 days and you will be notified if you won.

To apply to an Amazon Giveaway, you must have an Amazon account.

Each giveaway will have information of who it is hosted by, any requirements, how many prices are being given away and how you can win. Most giveaways seem to give away 30 prizes and 1 in X chance to win.

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