Increasingly, you may be asked to sign up on the company's Twitter or Facebook pages. Usually, there's a line asking if you want to have free email newsletters mailed to you. On some sites, the box is already checked, so you must un-check it if you don't want to receive newsletters.
Read the contest or sweepstakes rules carefully before you click "Enter." The rules may exclude certain states, be allowed only in certain countries, and may have a minimum age limit. Be sure to check the time of day the contest ends.CONTEST FOR ADVENTURE TRAVEL: SCOTTEVEST Trip of Your Lifetime
