Winning a Car: How Do You Do It?

Winning a car might sound like a dream, but how can you make that dream a reality? Keep reading and learn more about it here.

Have you been watching one of those old-school TV game shows where they pull back a curtain and see the prizes they can win? Eventually, one of those curtains pulls back to reveal a brand-new car.

The good news is that there are plenty of online competitions where winning a car is possible. You never know where your fortunes could end up. If you want an example, look at this man who won $13 million during his search for a competition car!

Let’s look at the different avenues you have for being able to win a free car.

Are Your Numbers Up?

You could always try entering a lotto like a man in the link above. All you need to do is win a tiny portion of the money with some lucky numbers. Then you’ll have your new car!

There’s even the prospect of making extra. The only problem is that the chances are low, and it’s not quite as exciting as seeing the car you could win.

Enter the Sweepstakes

You’ll often see cars as the prizes in sweepstakes. The chances won’t be as brutal as in something like a lotto, and you’ll also see the exact car you can win!

A lot of these competitions will have the potential to win a vehicle in the $30,000 – $50,000 price range. That dream car that you’ve always fantasied about owning? It could be just a competition entry away.

Where To Find the Best Car Competition

Before you start entering competitions all over the internet, wait a moment. You want to make sure they are legitimate and offer real prizes. You could stumble around on Google looking for answers, but you don’t need them. We’ve got a list of the latest competitions you can check out instead.

Websites like that one are perfect because they give you a comprehensive look at all of the cars available in upcoming competitions. That means you can browse through the cars and see if any of them pique your interest!

What Should I Know if I Win?

We often hear, “How do I win a car?” Never do you hear about what happens if you win a car.

A thought to keep in mind is the tax you might have to pay. Any winnings you happen to make might be included as income at the end of your tax year.

Since a lot of the vehicles are worth well into the tens of thousands of dollars, that could be a significant tax increase. It’s something to keep in mind should you get lucky.

Winning a Car and Rolling the Dice

Even if you don’t need a car, there’s a real thrill in winning a car. You could always sell it if you don’t need it or like it, meaning you’ve won a lucrative little lump of cash.

The thrill of that roll of the dice can be addictive, though. So whatever you do, enter these competitions with a responsible mindset and don’t get carried away.
