Win Free Stuff Australia Review
It’s no secret that we all love winning free stuff. And the number of free things available to be won online these days is at a level it’s never been.
Luckily, there are many websites that make doing this simple by giving you front-row access to countless draws and sweepstakes.
In this Win-Free-Stuff.com.au review, we will look at an Australian website dedicated to bringing you draws that offer plenty of free stuff. We will see how this site operates and how you can join the big list of people who win goodies every day.
How Does Win-Free-Stuff.com.au Work?
As stated, Win Free Stuff compiles all the best free draws and sweepstakes into one place. As a result, you can find them easily without having to spend time endlessly searching the vast landscape of the Internet.
There is no need to register a user account to use the site even though the option is available. There is no noticeable benefit to registering an account aside from one small feature that we will discuss later.
If you want to use the site, all you need to do is log on and start browsing the available draws. There are plenty of prize categories that you can browse to find the draw that is right for you.
Sadly, almost all of these categories were empty while we were reviewing the site. In fact, there were only a total of seven active sweeps listed on the site.
This is highly disappointing considering the size of the website and the number of listed prize categories. We hope that this is a temporary situation and that there will soon be more draws available.
If you happen to find a draw that you would like to enter, the process of entering is incredibly simple. Simply click on the post title or the banner displayed with the listing.
Clicking on either of these will redirect you to the draw organiser’s official website. Once you are here, you will need to follow the on-screen posts to complete your entry.
Is Win-Free-Stuff.com.au Legit or a Scam?
When looking into free sweepstake websites, we generally look at many different aspects.
These include how long a site has been in operation, any terms and conditions the site may have, and the public reputation of the website.
Win Free Stuff cleared all of these checks, and we believe it to be entirely safe to use and trustworthy. In other words, you shouldn’t have any problems if you decide to use this website.
There are several areas that the site could really work on in terms of design and user experience. That is not, however, to say that using the website is awful.
The site looks very dated, and the blue background is not exactly great to look at. However, the biggest problem we have with the look of the site is the images that are used.
None of these images is particularly great in quality. Even the button images at the top of the pages are slightly pixelated.
Things get worse when it comes to navigating around the site. The top menu bar is pretty useless if you want to go to a different page. For this, you will need to use the side vertical navigation bar.
This navigation bar is very busy and will leave you following endless links to find a category with an active draw.
The site works on mobile but is plagued by the same problems as the desktop version. This is mainly because it is not optimised for mobile in any way.
As you have probably guessed, you will not be able to enter any lottery on Win Free Stuff. For that, you will need to visit an online lottery site.
But, as we mentioned earlier, there are plenty of available prize categories available. These categories are:
- Shopping Sprees
- Kitchen Stuff
- Xbox Ones
- Nintendo Switches
- Mobile Phones
- Electronics and Gadgets
- Makeup and Skincare Products
- Home Makeovers
- Bedroom Stuff
- Outdoor Stuff
- Blu-rays, DVDs, and CDs
- Food and Wine
- Free Tickets
- For Mums
- For Kids
- For Pets
- Weddings and Honeymoons
- Bikes or Scooters
- Christmas Competitions
Considering that there are only seven available draws, we are at a complete loss as to why there are so many prize categories offered.
There is only one extra that we can see on the site. This is the ability to mark draws as entered or not interested. To do this, however, you will first need to register a user account and log in.
When viewing a draw listing, you will see a small tick and cross at the top right of your screen. Clicking the green tick will mark that you have entered the draw. Clicking the red cross will mark that you are not interested in the draw.
If you have done this, you can see these marks while browsing the available draws. This helps you identify draws that you have already seen from those that are new or that you have not yet seen.
Considering all of the sweeps listed on the site are free to enter, there are no payment or withdrawal options available.
How to Claim Your Winnings
Each sweepstake or draw listed on Win Free Stuff is run by an external company or brand. As such, each competition has its own process to follow to claim your prize if you are a lucky winner.
The site doesn’t list what this process is alongside each draw listing. You will need to look for the rules for the sweep on the official entry site and see what the procedure to follow is.
As we have said many times before, it is always best to know what this procedure is before entering a draw. That way, if you are a winner, you already know what process to follow to get your hands on your free stuff.
An FAQ section deals with any questions that you might have about how the website operates. Unfortunately, it is not very comprehensive, despite the many questions that are asked and answered.
The only other form of customer support is an online form. There is no mention of how long it takes for someone to contact you regarding your query.
Rules and Regulations
The terms and conditions of the website don’t mention who may or may not use the site. This doesn’t surprise us considering that they were last updated in 2009.
However, considering that the site is dedicated to Australian draws, it is safe to say that you should probably look for another free sweep site to use if you are not in Australia.
Win-Free-Stuff.com.au Review Conclusion
Truth be told, we expected much more from Win-Free-Stuff.com.au, as the site seemed full of promise when we first logged on.
We were even excited about the number of prize categories available when we saw them.
It is very disappointing then to see that there are less than ten active draws available. However, our disappointment runs deeper than this.
There is nothing spectacular about this site. Aside from not having any additional features to really get excited about, even the basics, like making sure the site is mobile-friendly, have been overlooked.
We always try to be entirely honest in our reviews. But if we are completely honest now, we recommend that you don’t waste your time with this site.
There’s absolutely no point when other alternative sweep sites are so much better.
