You know those lucky people who always seem to be winning things? I know their secret. I know their secret because I am one of them. For real my most recent win was $200, which I used to buy a new camera lens. Not bad!
Alright, are you ready for the big secret? Here it is – you have to enter. That’s it.
Don’t scoff. I am serious. But entering one contest, one time doesn’t count. It’s all a numbers game, so the more often you enter things the more often your number is going to be called and you will be the lucky winner. Winners enter.
We’ve already established that I am a winner, so it will come as no surprise that I was excited to learn that the Shop You Way Rewards program recently launched a Win You Way portal where shoppers can enter to win prizes and points by… shopping. That’s right, all you have to do to enter is shop online. (I would be rich if someone would pay me to shop!) Oh and by shopping, I mean window shopping – you don’t have to make a single purchase. Sweet!
Here is what you need to know:
- You must be a Shop Your Way Rewards member in order to play. (Easy Peasy, it’s free) If you are not one, you can register here.
- The Win You Way portal is located under the “sweepstakes” tab in the left-hand column within your Shop Your Way Rewards account.
- Most prizes are awarded in SYWR points. (In case you are not familiar with SYWR points, they equate to $$$ that can be redeemed to pay for part or all of your purchase at Sears, Kmart, etc. – 5,000 points = $5.)
- Some prizes are for actual items all prizes and values are clearly listed.
- You can see how many people have entered right there on the sweepstakes. For example I entered one with 388 entries and another with 68 entries – nice odds.
- It’s quick, easy and even a little fun!
There are several types of sweepstakes, all revolving around online window shopping. I entered a couple that were as simple as answering a poll question (prize 5,000 points) and a couple that required me to catalog my favorite items in the SYWR portal under a certain category (like baby) for 25,000 points. I think I entered 5-6 sweepstakes in about 15 minutes.
Check out a few of the sweepstakes currently offered in the image below.
Now that you know the big secret to winning, what are you waiting for. Head over to Win Your Way to start entering and winning!
