Love free stuff? Try winning some at myRobinHood

Love free stuff? Of course you do. It’s basic human nature.

Now, you can get free stuff from myRobinHood, a brand new lifestyle giveaways platform that claims to be doing the impossible — giving away free stuff that you actually want, like deals from Netflix, Kylie Cosmetics, Birchbox, Nasty Gal, Revolve, Boohoo, and more.

How does it work? Apparently, all you need for eligibility is to sign up for the platform via Facebook, Twitter, or email. From there, users are able to sign up for  daily, monthly, and yearly giveaways, simply by clicking “join.” Promising a user-friendly design, myRobinHood claims that its “clear and simple layout” helps users “browse quickly through the latest giveaways, ensuring that they will never miss out on an incredible opportunity.”

So what do brands get out of the deal? According to the company’s latest press release, “myRobinHood provides brands with the opportunity to increase exposure and convert users into loyal brand followers.” Because every giveaway contains a promo video, social media link, and a shop now button, each entry serves as something of a marketing campaign, encouraging users to explore other product offerings.

Our company’s goal is to give everyone an opportunity to win the latest and hottest products,” said Oren Salmon, CEO of myRobinHood. “With our newest lineup of giveaways, we aim to become the go-to app in the rewards market for millennials.”

Right now, the exclusive August giveaway features two tickets to the otherwise sold out iHeart Radio Music Festival in September, which features the likes of Britney Spears, Drake, Sam Hunt, Florida Georgia Line, One Republic, SIA, Cage the Elephant, Zedd, Tears for Fears, Pitbull, Usher, Sting, and more.

Be warned, of course, that if you do win one of these prizes, you’ll be solely responsible for reporting and paying any and all applicable taxes related to the prize. Because as ever, there’s no such thing as a free lunch.
