August is coming -- August is coming!!!

It's that time of year again.  The Freebie Lover's Dream.

Every weekday in August, from 12pm - 7pm, there is a giveaway each hour at Allure.com.  There are 25,403 prizes this year. 


Each giveaway is different, but typically the first 500 to enter will win an awesome beauty product. This takes some skill, and you have to be focused.  I have the attention of a 3 year old, so I usually only bag a few.   But here's how I do it:
  •  If you are not registered at Allure.com - set up your Account/Login ahead of time.
  • Set your preferred reminder for every weekday at noon.  I use my Google Calendar.  I set it to email me 20 mins ahead so I can log in, and get the form filled and ready to submit at exactly noon.  I work every day so I just have to hope that the phone doesn't ring or a customer doesn't come in at that time. 
  • After that first giveaway is over, I check the giveaway calendar for the rest of the day. http://www.allure.com/free-samples/2011/free-stuff-calendar#slide=1
  • There are 6-7 giveaways each day, on the hour.  If there are other giveaways I want to try for I'll set my Google Calendar to send me a reminder email for that hour.
  • Lather, rinse, repeat

Makeup, Hair Products, Styling tools...  they throw in some designer fashion items to keep it interesting.

Set your reminders now and Good Luck!
