Are you looking for a chance to win a Kindle e-Reader or iPhone? Prizeloot.com is an online prize site that offers a variety of chances for free to win a bunch of different items or the equivalent in cash. All you have to do is provide your email address and a bit of personal info.
What Is Prizeloot?
Each of the prize opportunities at prizeloot.com offers 5 chances each day to enter. Players simply have to complete a page entry for each chance. Make sure you check out the period of the specific prize you are after as each closes at a different time. Overall, it appears the bigger the value of the prize, the longer the competition – the longest being the visa gift card which lasts 4 months.
Who Can Participate?
Check the small print as only “legal residents” of Australia, Canada, and the United States can play here. Oh excluding people in Puerto Rico (for US residents) and Quebec (for Canadian residents). You’ve got to be 18 years or older and not involved in the company or any of their affiliates or families. Reading through the small print, it looks like if your dad is working for Amazon, you can’t play for Amazon gift cards.
What Are the Prizes Offered by Prizeloot?
Don’t look for any mega jackpots here. Prizeloot.com offers prizes ranging from a $25 gift card for Amazon to a $1,000 Visa gift card. There are heaps of other things to win like a MacBook, Cuisinart Coffee Maker, 50” TV, Acer Chromebook, and iPhone. Most of their prizes have a cash alternative. There is no information on who pays the postage for you to get your prize.
Who Owns Prizeloot?
Does this all look familiar? Well, if you’ve been looking at playing for prizes online through free sites, this is a sister site to Winloot, UWinIt, and RewardIt. Each of them offers a different combination of prizes to win for free. They are owned by Sharestakes LLC, a company out of New York State. There are an online form, an email, and a snail mail address but no phone numbers or live chat.
What Are the Terms & Conditions?
One of the things that are consistent in all the prize opportunities here is the five steps to go through to get your ‘chance to win’. After registration, complete the first entry page and then click the “Enter to Win”. This takes you to the next page… and the next page… up to five entries per day per prize chance.
How to Collect a Prize?
You’ve won and you’re wondering how long it will take to get your prize. So the ‘promotion period’ ends and Prizeloot says they will choose the winner within ten days. Then they will notify the winner within thirty days by email. Then the winner has thirty days to get back in touch and claim their prize. The winner might have to sign a notarized Affidavit of Eligibility and Liability/Publicity Release plus provide a picture. How much does it cost to get something notarized these days? Oh, and any Canadian winner has to answer a skills test.
Prizeloot Feedback and Complaints
There doesn’t seem to be any complaints or any feedback on prizeloot.com, but then again it also looks like it is the youngest site of Sharestakes LLC. Looking at the complaints on Winloot is enough to pause for playing here. The biggest question is whether or not you’ll actually get your prize.

Is Prizeloot Legit?
This is yet another free prize site that wants your email address and your time to look at advertising. They are marketing products which are what pay for the prizes and their operations. If you’ve got the time to sit there and click, click, click, then you might win something.
I get that nothing is really free but I certainly do not want to be the recipient of endless spam. In Prizeloot’s privacy statement, they say that they are going to use your personal information to “provide you with a personalized experience by displaying content and delivering offers”.
Prizeloot.com gets a thumbs-down. If you are a winner here, please let me know and I might rethink this.
