Patience and persistence. It happens to everyone who enters contests. There can be looong stretches of no wins. Keep at it, it will pay off.
I have been entering contests for 25 or more years and know well the 'dry spells'. I have also won a trip AND washer and dryer in the same week, so it does happen.Smiling Face With Open Mouth
I had a dry spell from Jan-April...ended up winning a $250 Visa Prepaid card from a contest. Like kaffy1 said...Patience and Persistence. It's all about luck and chances. If you don't enter, you lose out on the chance. And without chance, you won't even be able to exercise any of your luck.

I won a "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2" movie ticket from this contest. Many thanks, erikarowe!
I just won this also. It's funny, I found the empty bag in the park. I haven't seen the movie yet.

I also won this too -is it for 1 or 2 people? I won it from buying the chips for the first time yesterday (bought all 6!)

Thanks for the motivation to stay persistent :). Just as a side note, do you guys think signing up for the mailing list (if not required and without extra entry bonuses) boosts your chances in any way?
One bonus of signing up for mall newsletters (CF or Oxford malls for example) is besides contest news, the malls also send out survey links and put a gift card or a prize incentive draw for all the participants who complete the surveys. Have not won yet but I like those extra chances to win. I'm not as huge a fan of clothing store emails because so many promotions can put several emails into your account each week. But their contests usually require newsletter signup to participate, and first timers sometimes get a discount offer for their first purchase. I deleted my subscriptions from several clothing stores except a couple that I have loyalty cards for or do shop at sometimes-I could not take the email barrage.

Great to see lots of Valvoline winners, I won a $15 gift card too. 2016 and 2017 are looking like super bad years for me.

There was no Desjardins RRSP-TFSA quiz this year! I'm interested in the Manulife cash prize in their contest, but do not want to have to invest it with them.
Cash prizes are scarce.
Saying that, the occasional travel prize comes with prepaid card or cash along with the airfare/accomodations and sometimes meals-so there are some Electric Light BulbdiamondsElectric Light Bulb in the contest postings.
