Some of the links may be from a sponsor. Advertising Disclosure

Online, there are a ton of giveaways every single day.

And, while a ton of them are often products you probably don’t want, there’s one giveaway that we often can agree upon that is the best — winning CASH!

If you want to enter a sweepstakes for cash but are only interested in cash, I wanted to list all of the websites that help you find these big cash giveaways.  Instead of listing the most current cash sweepstakes options, which would take me a lot of work, I’m going to instead link to some of my favorite legitimate cash sweepstakes-based websites.  All of these websites do the dirty work for you, basically scouring the internet every single day and listing only the best options.

They all work in the same way.  Just click on the link, read the rules and enter your information, usually your name, email and sometimes your address.

If you want to win free cash and have a few minutes to spare, then you may want to enter a few every day.  It’s free and you have nothing to lose!  Eventually, the odds are in your favor and you could find yourself winning a ton of cash.

13+ Big Cash Only Sweepstakes Websites to Bookmark

NOTE:  I highly recommend you create a separate e-mail whenever you enter sweepstakes as a lot of these companies can often send a lot of spam/advertising.

Publishers Clearing House

Quite possibly the largest name on this list, the Publishers Clearing House is always giving away free cash, sometimes in the tune of $5,000 a week for life.  You probably know them from the commercials whenever they show up to someone’s door with a check and a bunch of balloons.  They have been around for quite some time.

Yes, the company is 100% legitimate and always offers a ton of cash giveaways, most of which you can see via the link below.  According to the company, they get its money from the sale of varied merchandise and magazine sales, but no purchases are necessary to win.

From instant wins to a million-dollar dream home, there are a ton of free options you will want to take advantage of.  It’s 100% free to join and only takes a minute of your time.

The Balance Everyday

The Balance Everyday does a great job linking to the many active cash sweepstakes opportunities, only linking to legitimate options.  The page is laid out nicely and isn’t overwhelming with ads.

Just find a sweepstake of interest, click on the “Enter Sweepstakes Directly” and fill out the information on the official sweepstakes page.  You can even find cash sweepstakes ending soon.

The page is updated daily with about 20 to 30 sweepstakes options at any given time, some of which offer more than $25,000 in cash prizes!  It really depends on the time of the year.


Contest Bee only updates once or maybe twice a day, but hey, it’s another option to consider.

Laid out similar to that of a blog, you can browse contests by the blog date and that’s about it.  The one thing I didn’t like was that they didn’t include a lot of information, but it’s an option nonetheless.

Aside from the website, they also have a Facebook page, where they claim to post up to two sweepstakes options as well.

The Lucky Day and Lucktastic Apps

I wrote about both the Lucky Day and Lucktastic apps in the past, and while I don’t recommend them as a way to make money, it could make for a great choice if you want to win money.  They are very highly rated with millions of downloads.

In short, both of these apps work in the same way, wherein you will scratch off tickets just like the lottery offers and win the prize if you match three symbols.  In some cases, you can win up to $5,000 or more playing these games instantly and can even win $100,000 by entering the jackpots.

These apps are no different than the casino, only that you don’t have to use your own cash.  You will earn points even as you play, which you can eventually turn into gift cards and prizes, but it can take some time to do so.  So technically, every card is a winner.  I just recommend you look at my reviews to see how they work.

Infinite Sweeps

Infinite Sweeps posts a ton of sweepstakes throughout the week, some of which are cash options.  You just need to make sure you’re looking at the right category to filter out your results.

The website does a nice job explaining what the contest is about as well as how much you can win, etc.

As an optional option, you can create an account, where you can add comments or even add your favorite sweepstakes to your “MySweeps” list.

Yes, as the name implies, focuses on everything sweepstakes, including cash-only options.  You can also look at the top 30 sweepstakes at this moment, usually what consists of some pretty valuable prizes.

While I was writing this, they had more than 120+ cash options, most of which were doing their drawing in the next 21 days.

With a very nice layout and easy-to-read description, this is one to bookmark for the future.

Sweepstakes Advantage

Out of all the options I list, this was one of my favorites as they did a great job listing all of the cash sweepstakes in an easy-to-read format.  You can view the limits, when it was added as well as when it expires.  Like many of the sweepstakes, you can search for more than just cash-only sweepstakes if you want more options as well.

Just visit the main page via the link below, click on the links next to the number to go directly to the official sweepstake or you create an account and add it to your sweepstakes personal page.

Sweepstakes Fanatics

Sweepstakes Fanatics reminds me of the many freebie websites I talked about in the past.

In short, they post a few sweepstakes options a day, letting you know what you can win as well as more important information such as the eligibility requirements, start/end dates as well as a link to the rules.  You can also sort by category as well as by entry limits in the case you want to enter more than once.

The website is laid out nicely, but you will have to click on the “read more” link to see more information in regards to the sweepstake.   Not a big deal, but it’s a great website bookmark, nonetheless.


At first glance, the website looks a little outdated, but I can assure you that it’s still updated to this date.

While UltraContest offers a “cash only” section to show you only the cash contests, you can also break down the contests into other categories as well, such as “win a vehicle” or even “win a house.”  It’s a great choice if you want to see the many active sweepstakes.

If you want to enter any of the contests, you can simply click on the “Enter Contest” next to each sweepstakes option, but you can also sign up as a member to receive email updates of any new contests that have been added.

Use Google

Google can be quite handy to find the most recent cash sweepstakes, but as a fair warning, you will have to sift through a lot of garbage before you find a gem.

To find the most recent cash sweepstakes via Google, here’s what you do…

Search for “cash sweepstakes,” but instead of scrolling down to search right away, you will want to click on the “tools” tab and then on either the “past 24 hours” or “past week” link.

In doing this, it will only show the most recent uploads with the keywords “cash sweepstakes” in the website’s title.  Again, you will have to sift through a lot of junk, but you should be able to find some options in doing so.

Check out Instagram

Instagram can be used for more than just pictures.

To find cash sweepstakes here, you will want to take advantage of the hashtags, using some such as “#cashsweepstakes,” “#wincash,” etc.   I found the #sweepstakes hashtag to be the most popular one. You can use this hashtag generator to come up with some ideas if you can’t think of any.

In doing so, you should be able to find something, but again, like the Google option, you will have to sift through a lot of spam/garbage before you find something good.

If you do think you find something of value, just make sure you never give away sensitive data, only your email address.

Final Thoughts

At any given moment, there are always hundreds of legitimate organizations that are looking to give away hundreds, thousands and sometimes tens of thousands for life.

As you can see, there are so many great third-party websites that stay up to date daily, showing you only the best cash only sweepstakes at this moment.

I just recommend you bookmark these websites/options and continue to check in daily to see which options you’re interested in.   As long as you make it a habit to sign up for one cash contest at least once a day, you at least have at least a better than chance if you never did it all.
