Amazon Giveaway Assistant

By | December 31, 2018

10/16/2019Amazon is retiring their giveaway program, and Amazon Giveaway Assistant has been removed from the Google Chrome Store.

Today we’re introducing a new Chrome extension to make navigating Amazon Giveaways a little easier. While we still prefer Giveaway.City’s interface, this improves the experience for those using Amazon’s giveaway pages. It also offers a few conveniences for everyone, so even if you’re already a Giveaway.City user, it might still be worth checking out.

Click here to see it on the Chrome web store.

Features

  • See if giveaways exist for products you’re shopping for
  • See giveaway odds, dates, and more before you click
  • Track which giveaways you’ve already participated in
  • Open giveaways in new tabs for faster navigation
  • Use navigation table for faster browsing
  • See more giveaways by product or sponsor

Adding to Chrome

Visit the Chrome Web Store by clicking here. This will take you to the extension’s page. Once you’re there, click on the “Add to Chrome” button at the top of the page.

Adjusting the Extension’s Settings

There are currently a few settings you can adjust to customize your experience with the extension. To reach the extension’s settings, look for the Amazon Giveaway Assistant (AGA) settings icon next to the URL bar and click it. It will appear grayed out if you’re not on Amazon.com or Giveaway.City, but you can still adjust the settings.

Select “Options” from the drop-down menu, which will open the settings page.

Hopefully, the settings are somewhat intuitive. If not, I’ll go on to clarify more.

      Thank you for the comment. I realized that the link wasn’t working on the text that says, “Click here…”. If you click on either the graphic or the text below it at the top, it will take you to the Chrome Web Store, and you will see a button that says, “Add to Chrome”.

      It looks like the latest Chrome update broke it. I made a slight change, and it appears to be working again. I appreciate your letting me know.

      I have not made the extension for Firefox. Firefox users typically make up less than 5% of visitors at Giveaway.City, so I wasn’t sure how popular it would be.

    It only gives me an option to add to desktop. What am undoing wrong?

      Hey, Sheila. It sounds like you might be using a phone or tablet that doesn’t support Chrome extensions. The “Add to Desktop” button will install it on your desktop computer, assuminv you have one.

      The lower the number, the greater your chances of winning. Most of Amazon’s giveaways are the “Lucky Number Instant Win” type where the nth entrant is the winner. So, if the number for odds says 1,000, it means the 1,000th entrant will win the prize.

      Thanks for the message. You should not have to restart your browser. When you navigate to https://www.amazon.com/ga/giveaways the extension should kick in and add information to the existing Amazon giveaway pages, as well as start opening the giveaways in new tabs. Also, it should show additional information on the giveaway pages you look at.

      Every once in a while, Amazon makes a change to the pages that I have to account for in the extension code to keep it working. I don’t think that’s the case here, but I’ll keep my eye out. If you’re still having trouble, let me know, and we’ll go through it over email.
