Let Us Introduce Ourselves

Gildist started in early 2018 as a sweepstakes company aimed at changing the way people win money.

We designed our sweepstakes to be quick to enter and easy to win without countless pages before the entry form, costs to enter, emails from dozens of promotional partners, surveys to fill out, games to play, or apps to download.

What we will do is provide you with as many great prizes as we possibly can while keeping this all enjoyably simple.
