We could all use a little extra money right now given the current state of the economy. We're giving you three chance every day to win cash! I've had many people ask me what they can do to increase their chances of winning since I have an inside look at the contest.

I've decided to put together a list of tips, knowing what I do, that'll help increase your chances of winning a grand!

1. Download our station app. It's super important that you also opt in for 'contest alerts'. We'll send you reminders to your phone before we give out the code words. This should help a lot.

2. Collect as many codes as you can. Each code is worth $1,000. Someone wins a grand every time a code is given out. You've heard that old saying 'practice makes perfect', right? Well, collecting more codes makes perfect too...or at least helps increases your chances of winning.

3. Assemble your squad. I know we're practicing social distancing, but the beauty of this contest is you can all listen to the radio together (while being apart) and share your codes with your friends...maybe make them split the pot with you if they win.

4. Get everyone in your family to make an account. If mom and dad are collecting codes, why not make your teenager or young adult collect them too while they're home from college? It's the least they can do for you since you've been doing their laundry.

5. Don't wait to plug in your codes online. We all have the best intentions sometimes, but with so many distractions in life, it's easy to forget to enter in your codes that you collected all day. I'd set an alarm on your phone every evening reminding you to plug in your cash codes.

That's it! That's my best advice for you. I hope you win yourself some cash money!
