It’s completely free to enter an Amazon giveaway.
The giveaways are like instant win sweeps, meaning you’ll see instantly if you won or not. 

If you win, Amazon will ship your prize to you free of cost.
The person or company who runs the Amazon giveaway will never see any information about you apart from your name.

Even though there are thousands of giveaways, many giveaways only have tiny prizes worth a few dollars.

How to enter these Free Giveaways?

Most of the time, all you have to do is click on a brown box which is jumping up and down on the giveaway’s page. After clicking the box, Amazon will tell you if you won or not.

However, sometimes you’ll have to do a small action to enter. Some of the free sweepstakes require you to watch a commercial, follow the company on Amazon or do some other task in order to qualify to join.

  1. well I an a bit sceptical about Amazon book give aways. Of course it shows up as rising popularity on the sales charts, but lets look at it. If you are given a book then you are not going to buy it, and you may tell a friend but likely as not you will loan it to him/her anyway, so they won’t be buying it. It is not free anyway, the hapless author is buying the books and paying the postage for the giveaways Amazon is making a profit because the author is buying his/her own books. Moreover, the royalty the author receives on a book is probably in the order of $1, or less, So give away 500 books costing probably costing the author about $4500 and he/she gets back about $1, in royalties for each book that they have purchased. So they are still left with a deficit of $4000. So they need to sell nearly as many books again just to break even. However, immediately they have sold them the book starts to sink back down in the ratings and becomes invisible to all except the very eager and people with time on their hands to search for it at No. 756,301, or whatever position, in the ratings .So who makes the money out of giveaways ?….The Answer is Amazon do, of course

    • Thank you, Vernon, for your thoughtful input.
      Yes, we fully agree that for authors it is likely a raw deal to run a print-book giveaway. Just do the math and it is a financial loss.
      Hence authors usually do their promotions with Kindle book giveaways, also known as ‘Kindle Book free today’.
      This won’t cost them for printing and shipping and certainly a Kindle book giveaway can aid their book’s ranking and visibility. When such a promotion is planned and executed in a well thought out way in order to maximize its effects.
      We do know some authors giveaway physical books in return for a review.

      Non-the-less, for some merchants, especially those with stores containing multiple products can find this practice of running giveaways very useful.
      Shopify and other eCom shop owners use giveaways, sweeps and contests as a powerful means to get more reviews, grow a list of prospects they can market other things to, as a viral promotion and so on.

      Small or beginning merchants often focus on giving away low cost items, light weight items, so that their shipping cost and ‘loss’ is low.
      Often in return for a customer review, which saves them hiring services to help them get reviews, find professional reviewers etc.

      And of course, the bigger the brand the easier it is for them to lose money on a promotion, or let’s say, invest or spend on this form of marketing and branding. They can deduct costs from tax liabilities as a marketing spend, while the low earners can’t do this as it is their rent money.
