Many companies sponsor sweepstakes on a regular basis.

Listen to the radio for local giveaways, fill in ballot boxes at the mall, or check out contests offered on products at the supermarket. Local restaurants often give away free lunches or dinners, while the magazines at your dentist's office are usually chock full of prize promotions.
