Hello again compers! Well, there’s no...
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 have had a few wins in July, starting with the usual Pop Chips from Higgidy as many other have also won - well done all. Although I did not win the Miso Tasty comp they sent a link to claim a free pack of soup, for which my husband became the guinea pig (and he enjoyed it too). My best win this month was a Foster Grant Sunglasses 5 Style Bundle from Instyle Magazine which I hope will arrive any day now! However, the piece de resistance for me was the tickets to seats in the best box at Glyndebourne! (Won through Gardens Illustrated in May) Wow, what a night that was, dressed to the nines and opera in full flow. It was absolutely terrific and something that I could not afford to experience - unless I won it. Other July wins include two books from Goodreads, a pack of captive cables, This is Brazil - Cookbook, a bike seat cover and two mystery prizes from The Happy Egg Co, yet to arrive. All this is thanks to ThePrizefinder because without you guys I wouldn't have even entered the comps. You're great. Thank for the inspiration and help you always give.
My initial forays into comping were cut short last year after a month of very modest results when I injured my arm and the doctor placed my computer out of bounds. Six weeks ago I started again and things have been looking up! So far this month I've received a Higgedy quiche voucher, an England football shirt from Carpetright, a heated throw from Dreamland and, perhaps most surprisingly of all, a £20 voucher for the Giftwrapped & Gorgeous pin-to-win comp when the promoter decided also to give vouchers to runners-up, even though the comp was advertised as a single-prize comp. What's more, two other promoters have told me I've won prizes worth over £100, but until I hold them in my hands I'm too superstitious to believe it!
I have been comping now for about a year and a half and haven't won a dickie bird. I don't get very much chance with working full time and having a daughter to look after in the evenings but when she goes to bed I come on this site and try for about 20 competitions a day. I was starting to get a little disheartened when yesterday I checked my emails and had my very first congratulations email from Emmie Boutique to say I had won a £50 voucher for the boutique.
I was over the moon and this small win has spurred me on to carry on and not give up. Thank you PrizeFinder.
After a series of small wins, I won an England shirt for my hubby with personalisation! This was from a Carpetright competition and was only the runners up prize! When I first started comping, I was disillusioned as I never seemed to win anything, then the wins all seemed to come at once! I am holding out for a big win but this one is the best so far! He is pleased as punch about it!!!
I've had a good month, before I went on holiday I won an istrap for my bag and sun mousse. While I was away I found out I'd won a tooth whitening kit, a case of a Blue Nun, Echo Falls make up, 10kg of dried cat food, a Nivea set and a lovely cheese and ale hamper. I've also got some cards through the door for deliveries. I love surprises! With only an hour a day's internet on holiday I can't wait to start comping properly again!
July has been brilliant and it's not over yet! I've had my biggest win of the year, when my dog was crowned UK's Naughtiest Dog from a photo comp. I've included the photo here... I received £500 in vouchers for a store of my choice and £150 towards blinds as the competition was hosted by Direct Blinds.
I've also received some beautiful Daisy London earrings, a £50 voucher for Pizza Express, a die cast VW Campervan toy, a stunning colourful cushion, a Hairy Bikers cook book and a cocktail making kit.
Easily my best month so far of 2014! I'm posting my winning story a little early as I'm off to Indonesia with some of my students for a biodiversity research trip, working in the rainforests of Sulawesi.
Good luck everyone :) I hope the rest of July brings you lots of wins x
I've been comping now properly for a few months but have done it on and off for years. I've entered hundreds of comps every month, with no prizes to show for it. However this month I've finally started winning. This is my short list of prizes for end of June/beginning of July 2014.
-1 year's free travel on the Metro - which I forfeited as I don't use the Metro.
-anklet bracelet from an Accesorize Facebook comp
- and my biggest ever win so far is a recent email I got about winning £500 worth of Wiggle vouchers. Wiggle is a sports website and have lots of things to choose from so I'm looking forward to receiving my £500 voucher code within the next few days. I'm going to treat my family and I can't wait.
My big win has kept me going and I'm still entering lots of comps, hoping at some point to win a holiday. My cousin's husband has won a couple of cruises from comping so there's always the chance, just got to enter as many as possible. I only use my own details to enter competitions, remember some sites may see the same IP address is used so it's best to use just your own details to enter as to make sure your entry is definitely valid - that's my tip to everyone.
Keep comping guys. I was about to give up, but it just shows in the end that you can win big if you keep at it.
My comping career started about ten years ago, but with a full time job it's difficult to put the hours in, so I only enter the comps I really want to win. I'm always amazed by the lists of wins from others, having only won a couple of dvd's and a cooler bag of beer about seven years ago. The last couple of years I've been hitting the competitions as hard as I can and getting a bit frustrated with a prize count of zero! Then just this week, thanks to a simple spot the ball competition run by The Nottingham Building Society I finally got my winning email notification, yeah, so I entered to win the 42" TV but £50 of Love2Shop vouchers is not to sniffed at, and also great timing as my daughter is turning one next month and we had a trip to ToysRUs today :)
So to all those who never seem to win, persevere, it will come... eventually!
