Cash from national contests can help you pay off debt, fund your dream vacation around the world, or send you shopping in style. But you cannot win the money unless you enter the contests. The odds can be tough, but it’s easy to get online. And someone has to win, right? Why not good people like you?
The contests listed here represent approximately $ 130,000 in prize money and that excludes the Publishers Clearing House SuperPrize. The super lucky person who scores in that contest generates $ 7,000 a week for life, which isn’t bad loot for the few minutes it takes to enter.
The time to enter the cash contests is now
Don’t delay in entering contests to win cash. Some of the 2021 deadlines are April and May.
1. $ 15,000 Love Your Home Giveaway
If your house could use a little love to really feel at home, check out this contest. The Meredith Corporation $ 15,000 Love Your Home Giveaway offers a grand prize of $ 15,000 to one lucky winner. And while the giveaway is marketed as a way to upgrade your home, the prize itself is a check that you can use however you like.
To participate, go to any of the Meredith Corporation magazine websites (including Southern Living, Health, Real Simple, and People) and enter your email address. See the full list of URLs you can enter here. Once you sign in, your email will be automatically posted to each of the nine Meredith Corporation magazine websites.

You can enter the giveaway as many times as you like, but you can only use each email address once. So if you have a few for different purposes, you should be able to increase your odds.

3. Publishers Clearing House Superprize Event
Even if you’re not into sweepstakes, you’ve probably heard of Publishers Clearing House. Instead of just sending you a check, they show up with a gigantic check and put on a great show by awarding it.
You may wonder if this is legitimate; While there are many copycat scammers out there, PCH actually hands out giant checks to real people just like you.
The PCH SuperPrize event is offering a phenomenal prize of $ 7,000 a week for life. To participate, simply complete this form and submit it. The winner will be announced on April 30, 2021.
Even if you miss the SuperPrize event, keep checking the website to see how you can enter to win other giveaways.

In addition to offering hours of entertainment and escapism, the Travel Channel will give away $ 10,000 this spring to one lucky winner.
To enter, go to the official giveaway website and enter your email address. You will then be redirected to a form that will ask you to enter your name, address, gender, date of birth, and cable provider. After that, you will be asked a question to test your travel knowledge. Even if you make a mistake, you can still submit your entry. You can log in here or at InvestigationDiscovery.com (or both) twice a day until May 12, 2021.
The giveaway is open to US residents 21 and older.
5. Zyrtec Go All Out $ 5,000 Giveaway
For some, the beginning of spring marks the end of the blues of the cold winter. But for others, it means that dreaded allergies are on the horizon. If you fall into the latter category, maybe a good $ 5,000 check will help you feel better.
Zrytec has partnered with Thrillist and Popsugar to offer a grand prize of $ 5K to one lucky winner. To participate, go to goalloutthisspring.com and fill out the form. You will need to enter your name, city, state, and email, and then answer the question, “How will you do your best this spring?”

The Frito-Lay drawing awards a weekly jackpot of $ 20,000, as well as payouts of $ 20 per hour. The prize is awarded through PayPal or Venmo, so you will need to have an account with one of those to enter. You will also need to register an account at crunchyourluck.com.
To enter, you will need a Combination Code, which you can obtain on a Frito-Lay product marked for promotion or by calling a toll-free number and following the instructions.

7. Union Home Mortgage – PBR Home Giveaway
Here’s a fact you probably don’t know: Union Home Mortgage is an Official Professional Bull Riders Partner. It may seem like an unusual couple, but cowboys need home loans too!
UHM and PBR have also partnered to offer a $ 25,000 cash prize to one lucky winner. Even if you don’t win the grand prize, you can still win a super cool PBR branded belt buckle in the Instant Win Giveaway. The buckle has an approximate value of 50 dollars.
The giveaway will last until October 17, 2021, so there is plenty of time to enter and win a cash prize. You can only enter the Grand Prize Drawing once (either by SMS or by completing this online form), and you can enter each Instant Prize Drawing once. Each Instant Prize winner will also be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing.
The contest is open to US residents 18 and older, but excludes residents of Alaska, Hawaii, New York, Utah, Rhode Island, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
8. ECS Tuning Spring 2021 Draw
ECS Tuning offers original, replacement and high-performance parts for European cars. And from now until May 31, 2021, you can enter the ECS Tuning Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $ 10,000 ECS gift card.
