No More Amazon Giveaways. Now What?

By | October 24, 2019

As you surely know by now, Amazon has retired its giveaway program. It sure was a lot of fun while it lasted. Am I the only one who can’t figure out what to do with his downtime now?

Giveaway.City began as site dedicated to simply displaying Amazon Giveaways in an organized, filterable fashion. The idea was to take what was a static list and enhance it to maximize participants’ chances of winning.

Now that there are no more Amazon Giveaways, I’m still working to determine the future of the site. Though I have some ideas, I don’t have as much time to work on them as I’d like. I’ve received a couple of emails from parties interested in acquiring the domain name, but I’m not ready to give it up just yet.

So, while I’m brainstorming and working on things, I’m doing my best to keep the site alive by offering gift card giveaways. The majority of these are the random instant win variety, meaning that every participant’s chances of winning are exactly the same. Others may require a specific entrant number, just to mix it up a little.

Thank you for continuing to use the site.

Here is a giveaway just for people reading this blog post. The odds of winning are 1 in 50. It may not last long…

    I don’t have computer/sales/website experience- but it seems to me companies would welcome a site like this that exposes people to look at new iitems that they might not ordinarily look at or search for. The companies then get a higher volume of traffic.. so if its still what you want to do- keep trying

    I’m with Frida. I learned about thousands of new products while playing Giveaway.city. I purchased many items that I learned about. I cannot imagine why Amazon ended the giveaways. From the looks of it, the advertiser is the one who incurred the cost, and it brought more traffic to Amazon. Maybe in all their glory they don’t think they need it. Too bad for them. Honestly sometimes I feel guilty for not buying local, or supporting smaller businesses. Maybe Giveaway.city could be a site for something entirely different. Think Nation of Makers for example.
