I only started comping properly at the beginning of December when I decided to throw myself into the advents! I have won some great prizes in the last few weeks including a Ted Baker iPad case, Frozen DS game, Amazon voucher, Step 2 ride on motorbike, 007 aftershave and many more. My best wins however were afternoon tea at the Beaufort Hotel which also included a £50 Harrods voucher, and dinner for 2 at Armadillo at the O2. I decided to combine the two and treated my mum for her birthday in London. What a treat when we were presented with a voucher for £100 when we got to the restaurant! We had so much fun trying all the different cocktails and stuffing our faces! My friends keep asking how I do it!!! Thank you theprizefinder.com!
I started comping in Jan 2012 and had a great year. 2013 however was insane and I have given my friends and family some of THE most amazing experiences through prizes.
For my husband I won a VIP tour of the Formula 1 Red Bull head office and factory. For my children I have won show tickets and meals to their favourite places.
With my £11,500 cash prizes and various vouchers I have paid for my sisters 30th birthday meal, a trip to Greece to see my friend get married, a trip to Orlando later this year and a hen weekend to Barcelona.
Clothes for weddings and parties, 13 tickets for Alton Towers, weekend breaks for us all and £500 worth of gift vouchers for Christmas!
I don't expect to ever have a year as amazing as I just have, I am just so grateful for the lovely things I am able to give my loved ones..all thanks to comping!
You may remember my post on your Facebook page around October/November. I was saying that I was spending hours comping and hadn't won a thing since the summer. It was so nice for other people give ideas and spur me on and I kept at it.
December is my favourite time of year for comps as I love the advents. I made sure I put aside an hour a day (at work, don't tell my bosses) to do the advents and the 1st week in December I won a £25 One4all gift card and a ZTE Smart phone. I was bowled over and I gave the phone to my daughter for Christmas. I would never have managed to afford to buy one like that.
Then came the big one. I had an email from the National Lottery saying that I had won a handbag in their advent comp. I was so pleased to win such a lovely treat. Imagine how I felt when I discovered it was a Mulberry handbag worth £1,600.
It's my biggest win and I couldn't believe it. The girls at work were both jealous and pleased for me.
I'm hoping for a great 2014 comping. Good luck everyone. xxx
Back in November I was sat on my sofa checking my messages on Facebook when I came across one in my inbox asking me to call a number and quote 'winner'. I was very sceptical and wasn't sure if it was spam. After 10mins I decided to ring it. When I rang and said winner they said "Congratulations, you've won a corner sofa and we can deliver it tomorrow." I was in shock. As the day went on I was in disbelief so didn't think too much about it. The next morning I was waiting for in for a few deliveries when I answered the door. The guy said, "Miss Pawson?" I said "Yes?" He said 'We've got you down for a sofa today." I nearly fainted, couldn't believe my luck. I'm over the moon.
I was chuffed to receive an e-mail letting me know that I'd been selected as a runner up in the Rough Guide competition. When I got home from work to find one of those exciting missed delivery notes from the post office I knew it was my Journey Latin American water bottle. Imagine my surprise when I collected the package only to find out it was a completely different prize that I didn't know I'd won! My son loves his new dinosaur backpack AND I`ve still got the other prize to look forward too.
It was Christmas Eve and there was a knock at the door. My husband went to open it and when he returned he had a rather large parcel in his hands. It was addressed to me but I hadn't ordered anything so I was rather excited when I opened it. I had every right to be because I had just won £300 worth of Paul Mitchell hair products. What a fantastic Christmas present, especially as I don't receive presents very often. This would have been quite enough but a few days later I was reading through my email and found the email from Grazia regarding the prize. I had won the top prize and had also won a haircut/colour in the Headmasters flagship salon in Mayfair. Merry Christmas to me :)
You know when you enter those competitions knowing you won't win it, well I did that but I won it! It was a Rafflecopter competition for a £350 bangle! I would never spend that much on a bangle and it isn't that bad either! Now all I need is to find an excuse to wear it! Happy new year everyone.
I have been entering competitions like crazy and managed to enter 300+ comps a day all throughout December, on top of advents! December was amazing but January has started off even better! On 2nd January I won a £150 Monsoon gift card. On 3rd January I won a £100 spa voucher and 8 tubs of lovetub sticky toffee pudding! Also on the 3rd of January, I won the Ultimate LG Gadgets in the Wuaki Christmas countdown. I am still awaiting to here of the exact details but it contains a 55" LG SmartTV, 3D Home Cinema System, G2 Smartphone, and G Pad Tablet! Then, on 7th January I won 5 tickets to a Chloe Howl gig in London plus a Nokia Lumia 625, Nokia Purity stereo headset by Monster, and JBL Playup Portable speakers. Also on 7th January, I won a £200 Virgin Experience Days gift card! The best start and most amazing first week of 2014! Good luck everyone!
