Hello everyone! How was your week, any nice...
Meet Our Competition Winners
Read how we helped these lucky winners win their dream prizes. And if you'd like to read about the BEST EVER wins that PrizeFinder members have had, check out all the fabulous comments on this blog post!
I entered a Lion Guard, Disney Junior competition in March on Facebook that I had spotted on Prizefinder! It was just a photo of us all roaring along with a description of why we are stronger together. To my amazement I had a call on the Tuesday asking if I was able to accept the prize and travel to London that Saturday with my family. Needless to say we dropped everything to accept! Saturday morning we travelled down to London on the train to be whisked off to a studio and have photos done. The rest of the day we had free, so after checking in at K West in Shepherds Bush, we squeezed a trip to Hamleys in and a meal before picking up our tickets for Lion King at the Lyceum. It was the most amazing thing we had ever seen, my boys just loved it from start to finish! The photos that we had taken were sent off to a guy in USA who digitally transformed us into lions. They were released to the press in early April and we featured in New Day, Daily Mail Online and our local papers too. We really have had our 5 minutes of fame as well as genuinely a unique experience we will never forget, all thanks to my hobby!
Really pleased with my wins this month-got a lovely bouquet of flowers from Homeland Florist with a twitter caption comp,a Breville sandwich toaster for National Sandwich week,£50 Argos vouchers,an oven glove from Clover and £25 red letter day voucher also from a caption comp.I won first prize of a Silent night hippo too but missed the facebook status saying who had won (grrr) so they sent me two smaller ones instead-Also had my weekend away in Devon that I won last year so all in all a really good month-can't wait to see what happens next!
I had entered the odd competition before, but started comping in earnest when I discovered the Prizefinder website a year ago.
My very first prize were VIP tickets to the Taste of London Show incl. a hotel stay and throughout the year I managed to win some really lovely prizes, strangely all but a couple (deodorant & a crime novel) food related, despite entering all sorts of competitions for household goods, furniture, clothes, electronics and holidays. But I’m not complaining! I’ve won an afternoon champagne tea, a meal in a Cuban restaurant, a tea bundle from Teapig worth £200, an ice cream make, a bag of dairy products, a tub of ice cream, a bar of chocolate and six cookery books. I had a complete dry spell from November to May, but persevered and won three prizes on one day this month: invitations to a supper club, tickets to the BBC Good Food Show and the mini cheesecake in the photo!
I was delighted to win a low entry competition on Twitter recently. To enter, you had to tweet a picture of where your wellies take you, which is the title of Michael Morpurgo's new book. Are used a lovely picture of my two children on the beautiful island of sky last year, wearing wellies to go for a walk. It was a short run competition and rather lower entry and, to my delight, we were picked as a witness! The price was two tickets to see Michael Morpurgo's new show and a copy of his book. I decided to go with my son, and we were thrilled to be able to get a selfie With Michael after the show. The book is beautiful and we had a very happy day out together. It does show that it is always worth entering Twitter competitions where photographs on needed, especially if you keep photographs from special occasions and unusual locations!
When I started comping I always had a wishlist and at the top of the list was something that finally turned up two weeks ago. Some people wish to win a car, a holiday or a vast amount of cash, but for me, rocking up to play group with my little boy on this dream-machine was my ultimate win :) . Thank you ThePrizeFinder for making all our dreams come true...
Last year I've won a 3 night hotel stay in Devon with Coastal Magazine. We're going this weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and I'm so excited!!! We will be treated to champagne afternoon tea on arrival, plus breakfast and dinner every day. The hotel has just opened a brand new spa, so whatever the weather, we're going to have a lovely time for sure! :)
This month I began trying some daily entry competitions after reading about a winner who had won all her prizes this way. I used to think I'd never win anything in a daily entry comp for some reason. Managed to bag 4 AA batteries from Battery Force! Not my best win to date but it's something! Hopefully the start of more wins in general - been a pretty lean year. I too am amazed when I read how many prizes some people win - lucky them!!
In January this year I was delighted to hear that I had been picked as a winner in an online competition on the Amarula liqueur website. The prize was a luxury night away in a 'Handpicked Hotel' , a 3 course dinner for two and a bottle of Amarula Liqueur. We excitedly accepted the prize and opted to travel in April 2016. Our choice of hotel was Crathorne Hall in Yarm, North Yorkshire. We upgraded our room and were given the luxurious Maltby deluxe suite complete with balcony . My partner and I had a fabulous time, the staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. We plan to return in the future and would highly recommend this hotel to you all. :-) Natalie x
