View Full Version : Do you join mailing list when entering contests?

Does this increase your chances?? I haven't won (yet) but wanted to know from those who won the bigger prizes if you subscribed to the site's mailing list?

I started joining all of them. I opted out of most of them before, didnt win alot. Most of my wins are instants.

Now that Im joining...I am hoping that helps.

Good luck!

I do if it's something I'm interested in. I don't think it makes any difference. I've won lots of contests (big and small prizes) when I didn't opt in for their newsletters.

Good luck to ya!

opt out always unless required... have actually purchased an item or two through seeing something I liked while sweeping...

I do when it's something that interest me..otherwise, I don't subscribe. I tend to stay away from the ones that opt you in automatically w/ an entry.

Joining the mailing lists doesn't help your chances. It may help you find out about future contests at the site before you normally would though :drip: . I opt in for mailing lists of sites I have an interest in--definitely not the majority of them.

they say it does not increase your chances, but I subscribe to all of them. I want to help out the sponsors. :cool2:
