Pros: It is easy to use and allows me to duplicate old giveaways and then change only the bits that are different. Great options and I love the template terms and conditions you can use with your own data to create a proper T&C for the giveaway. Works on different platforms and can be added to Facebook.

Cons: The price for the next level plan is quite expensive. Especially when I only want the viral sharing option - the other options are not something I need. I wish they had a mid level plan, or the ability to purchase the options we need individually. Also, it would be helpful if the terms and conditions duplicated over from the giveaways we 'duplicate' - then we would not need to refill it all in each time - and only make changes to the bits that have changed from giveaway to giveaway (when we have the same person sponsoring the giveaway).

Overall: Reliable giveaway hosting software to pick random winners.

Pros: It's free! There are upgraded options available, but the features you get with the free version are robust and easy to use. I especially like the "create your own" option, so you can have people perform whatever act you'd like in order to enter the giveaway. The widget looks great on most websites and is very easy to use.

Cons: I wish there was a way to test the giveaway buttons before going live. As it stands, the only way to test is to have the giveaway start and then go through the steps as though you were entering it, then disqualify your own entries. It is a bit cumbersome. However, this is a very minor complaint all things considered.

Overall: Overall, this is a tool I use several times per year and love recommending to others. The ease of use and variety of features, even with the free version, make it a must-have for me.

Pros: I have used this for contests on both my old personal blog I used to run, as well as on the facebook page I run for my employer. It ensured that we were following any rules and regulations, as well as being very easy to understand from both our user-end as well as our patrons; well worth the per month $;

Cons: Sometimes can be a little glitchy, but this is rarely, and with a quick log out and log back in, it usually fixes itself.

Pros: I've used Rafflecopter a lot and it's always super easy. I like that I can save templates so I don't have to duplicate my efforts. It's user friendly both on my side and the entrant's side.

Cons: There are other programs that provide more options, but the user friendliness of Rafflecopter makes it worth the limited options. I wish their pricing was cheaper for their higher plans.

Pros: Rafflecopter is super easy to use. You can just jump in with the free version and set up a giveaway or contest in a few minutes.

Cons: You need to use one of the paid versions to get most of the really useful features. This is ok, but it depends on your budget and needs. Also, some users (the ones entering the giveaway) might not be familiar with using Rafflecopter and get nervous about trying something new.

Overall: I've used Rafflecopter for about 6 years to host giveaways of products for sponsors, agencies, clients and brands. It has features that let the contestant enter the giveaway by sharing on social, subscribing, answering a question, and several other methods that help spread awareness and increase engagement.

Definitely brings customers!

Pros: I love the ease with which you can set up a giveaway for a blog tour, for example, and get others to share your links, sign up for your newsletter, promote your product or virtually anything you want. Every rafflecopter draws many more visitors to my site than ever before

Cons: Many of the best options cost money. For example asking for newsletter signups.

Overall: I've used it both as a recipient and as a prize giver. I will continue to use it for some time, because it keeps track of my entries and even chooses a winner. It is fast, accurate, and makes promoting easier

Pros: Rafflecopter is so easy to use. No reading a manual to try and figure out how to use the program. Every time I've used it my response are great!

Cons: The only thing I had problems with is blogger sometimes gives me a hard time with the code and doesn't want to display the rafflecopter properly. I'm not sure if that is a blogger issue or a rafflecopter issue.

Overall: As I said above, it is so easy to install. I love the program and would recommend it to anyone with any budget as it has a free version!

Pros: What I like most about Rafflecopter is how simple it is to set up raffles to give rewards away to my followers (I'm a writer as my part-time job).

Cons: Sometimes it can be difficult to see stats about how many people have entered my raffles.

Overall: With Rafflecopter I have an easy way to give away gifts (such as gift cards, books, etc.) in exchange for people taking certain actions (like Liking me on Facebook or visiting my Bookbub page, etc.).

Pros: They offer a free version to create a giveaway, which is nice when you're first starting out. It's also very simple to set up and select your options.

Cons: I can't speak for any of the paid plan options, but from my experience there isn't a way of changing the entry method point value to anything above a 5. There also isn't a way to hide the number of entries, which can sometimes prevent people from entering if the number of entries seems a bit too high. The Viral Refer-a-friend option level seems priced a bit high compared to competitors.

A simple raffle tool that gets the job down effortlessly.

Pros: - Easy to setup raffles without doing much, enabling you to engage with users more.

- Integrate with social media platforms like Facebook.

Cons: - I don't really have anything that I didn't like about Rofflecopter. I used it more for small prize giveaways at a previous company, so didn't fully use all of its features.

Overall: Good at what it does, prize giveaways and sweepstakes.

Works well for what it does. Doesn't have bells and whistles other services do.

Pros: It is relatively easy to use, and it has all the basic features you'd expect from a sweepstakes software. It offers white labeling on its most expensive plan. Really drop dead simple integration to popular mail services like Mail Chimp. They make it super easy to choose winners and report them to your audience through their service.

Cons: It lacks some of the advanced features other similar services have. If you want to do competitions instead of just sweepstakes, you should look elsewhere.

Pros: I liked that there was no cost to use it and once I did get it set up it did get the job done. I was able to conduct my giveaway with a good outcome.

Cons: At first, this was very confusing to use. I had the hardest time to get it set up. I also could not get any support for my issues or to get my questions answered. I did finally get it set up, but only through trial and error on my part.

Overall: I liked that once I got it up and running, it did do the job it was intended for. Though it was somewhat difficult and confusing to use, at least it was free to use.
