Avoiding Junk Mail

Sweepstakes entries are one of the primary ways companies build their email lists. If you don’t want to be bombarded with junk email, try to opt out (if possible) from any mailing list sign-ups they are offering along with the contest entry.

It’s also smart to create a “junk mail” address through a free Web-based email provider such as Gmail and use it for all sweepstakes sign-ups. However, be sure to check that mailbox at least every couple of days, since winners are frequently notified by email.

We only list the following types of sweepstakes:

  • sponsored by Disney
  • major company/organization offering major Disney prizes
  • major company/organization offering trip to Central Florida (Orlando, Tampa, Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral)
  • major company/organization offering trip to Southern California (Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego)

We sometimes choose not to list specific sweepstakes for various reasons. Some of those reasons include:

  • no official rules
  • promotion seems misleading/questionable
  • sponsor is obscure or known/suspected to be problematic
  • primary prize is negligible, such as a low-value merchandise item, video or pair of tickets to a show
  • rules suggest major privacy issues (seems possible your data will be sold to a telemarketer or spammer)
  • Facebook sweepstakes that requires you to authorize an app (potential privacy issues)
