With so much to choose from, it's hard to know the best sweepstakes sites to promote your contest or giveaway to. Where do you start? What sites are legit and which ones are scams? Fortunately for you, I've tried them all! Through extensive testing I've found which sweepstakes sites yield the best traffic. As it turns out, really only a handful of them are truly worth your time.
So without further ado, I've compiled a concise list of websites that you simply must submit your sweepstakes too. Let's start!
With over 20,000 email subscribers, 5,200 Facebook likes, 2,400 Twitter followers, and 1,700 Pinterest followers, this is a great place to start! We consistently refer high volume traffic to our loyal fan base.

Giveaway Play gets some of the highest referral traffic of any promotion site around! They have over 30,000 newsletter subscribers, engaged social media, and a loyal fan base. Also, they're the only promotion site with 0 ads. They believe by removing ads the users will be more engaged - resulting in more click throughs. I've used them before and must say it's more than worth your time.

GiveawayPromote is a great place to get high traffic for your sweepstakes! They have a loyal fan base, are very active in social media, and have a high Alexa ranking!

ContestGirl is another great place to get high traffic for your sweepstakes! Linda started the site in 2006 and has built up a very loyal & active fan base along the way. The site gets a ton of new listings every day as well.

Let’s not forget about Reddit! This is an excellent place to list your giveaways. There’s two subreddits that have yielded the best results for me:
Reddit Giveaways – 10,000+ subscribers. Expect anywhere from 20 – 50 visitors on the first day from this.
Reddit Sweepstakes – 3,500+ subscribers. Expect about 20 visitors on the first day from this.
* Be sure to read the stickies for posting format.
SlickDeals has a very active sweepstakes directory! You can expect to get anywhere from 100 – 400 visitors from a listing in their sweepstakes forum.
Simply create an account, verify your email, then post a new thread to the sweepstakes forum.
Be sure to carefully read the rules on how to post. Look at existing listings to get an idea on what the standard is. This forum is actively maintained by admins, so if it’s not compliant with their rules, it sill be taken down. * I’ve found that it’s easier to get listed if you share it to Facebook upon submission (they’ll give you an option after you submit your listing).
