Intro: Radio stations give away thousands of dollars every year in cash and prizes.

Yes, you really can win; it is not too good to be true.


So, how do you win?


Step 1: Always listen to the Radio. No matter where you are, at work, at home, in the car, or even at the beach, always listen to the radio.


Step 2: Listen to the rules and clues. If you have to call at 11:03AM, then call at exactly 11:03AM. You can use your cell phone, computer, cable box, anything that has the exact time. If you never try, you will never win. You will not win every time, but once you win one time, you'll be hooked. Just don’t give up.


Step 3: Re-dial is your friend, grab your cell phone and house phone, use two or three phones at once. Have your family or friends help re-dial. As soon as you hear a busy signal, hang up and re-dial. Don’t just try once and hang up. Keep trying until you hear the winner on the radio.


Step 4: If they do answer, sound super happy and excited. Show some enthusiasm. They are trying to entertain their listeners. They want someone interesting to listen too. Beg or tell a story about how bad you want to win. Sometimes, it doesn’t really matter what number caller you were, as long as you sound excited or have a story.


Step 5: Every station has a website. If you sign up for their mailing lists, sometimes you will get extra clues or times e-mailed to you. Check all the radio stations in your area and see who is giving away what prize; you can switch stations during the day.


One station might have call in times at 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM and the other one might have something between 12-5PM, so after 1:00 PM switch over to the 12-5PM station. Usually, if a contest is from 8:00AM to 12:00PM they are going to give the signal to call, near the end of the time, to keep you listening longer.


Step 6: The radio station and TV stations websites usually have sweepstakes or contests you can sign up for on their websites and you don’t have to be listening to win. Here is a place to check for some stations in you area, just enter your zip code.
