Who wouldn’t like to win a bunch of cold hard cash!

So why aren’t more people entering sweepstakes?

Well, the problem is that there are so many sweepstakes online that it overwhelms most of us.

More importantly, most people are worried about scams. And that’s not a baseless worry either. There are countless number of so called sweepstakes out there that while they aren’t outright scam, they are not really fair sweepstakes either.

So how do you find legitimate cash sweepstakes you can enter?

Well, you could either spend hours and even days scouring the web to find a few legit contests, or you could just read the rest of this post.

I spent some time digging around and came up with a rather massive list of cash sweepstakes that are free to enter and require no purchase. Unlike many such contests that require you to jump through hoops to get your entry, these contests are 100% free and very easy to participate in.

These are 2015 cash sweepstakes, meaning most will end within a few months, so be sure to enter as soon as you can.

Note: This list will be updated as old contests end and new ones are introduced. Be sure to bookmark and check back later for new contests.
