Spring is in the air! And with my plans to makeover my garden in...
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 received an e-mail on Friday 22nd November at about half 5 to say I'd won a PS4, a Braun shaver and £300 worth of Boots vouchers, I entered the competition on The Telegraph website on Tuesday and thought nothing of it! I was having a really bad day but that soon cheered me up. Guess where I'll be doing my Christmas shopping...? :-)
Had a few nice wins which will help in the run up to Christmas... books, and vouchers being some. I won a tablet that I can give the other half and a few nice chocolaty prizes. I also won a cheese knife which I'm quite pleased with as mine had broken, so this is a handy replacement. There are so many competitions around at the moment it is just nice to be able to win a few. I am looking forward to the advent competitions, but expect to be inundated, so will attempt to do them all. Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work and to share my prize details with you.
I have had a break from comping for about 3 years. Work, health, wifes health, kids and life all seemed to get in the way but just recently I have had some spare time in the evenings. Found myself on ThePrizefinder website while wilfing one night and thought I'd give it a go again. 2 weeks in and I have won a pair of tennis socks! And a Kindle Fire HD :-) Good luck to everyone out there.
What do you do once the kids have flown the nest? Go back to what you did before! For me that was comping, and two weeks ago I took it up again after breaking off for a few years.
With Daughter Number One at University and Daughter Number Two enrolled in College I started comping again on the 31st October 2013, courtesy of remembering that ThePrizeFinder.com was a great resource for keeping me busy 24/7.
Last time I was comping I won the Best Christmas Ever with Hasbro quite early on: Decorations; Hamper; Drinks and a 2-week Holiday for 4 anywhere in Europe. This time around? The Currys/PCWorld Promotion Daily pulled my name out of the virtual hat exactly 2 weeks after I started comping again.
So that's 2 Laptops, an XBox One, an i-Pod Touch and a Galaxy 10.1" Note Tablet on my first win! They're in the picture above sans the XBox One, those are in high demand, they will deliver it when they get more stock.
This was all delivered today, and today just happens to be my birthday :)
I'm under no illusions that wins like these are rare, for me maybe once every 18-24 months, but they and all the little wins in between are what make comping so worthwhile for me. But what really keeps me going is reading about all your wins - I check the Blog daily for updates and smile for all of you as your prizes turn up - and that inspires me to keep pressing on with more form filling, captions and battling with Captchas.
I thank ALL of you for all your help and inspiration. If you're thinking of taking up comping for the first time there's only ONE very important rule to remember: "You gotta be in it to win it!"
I was recommended theprizefinder.com by my comp queen sister and as I knew I could definitely make time for fun things to do I decided to give it a try.
I registered last week and after reading lots of the useful tips and suggestions began comping. So many competitions but I heeded the wise forum words and just entered the ones where I wanted to win that particular prize. A day later success... I received an email congratulating me on winning a 1 night stay for two at a lovely London hotel plus tickets to see Josh Osho perform. I am here now and just met Josho Osho himself. Checkout my room.......AMAZING!
Comping is fun and the rewards a bonus. Why didn't I start this years ago! I'm definitely a convert now.
Starteding comp in July and had some small wins like a Cook book, Rastamouse CD, pencil set, THEN came a big one which was the BT movie night comp which included an iPad 4, popcorn machine with bowl and seasonings, 24 bottles of Peroni beer, Star Trek DVD with ears, Pizza Hut voucher and a selection of sweets an chocolates. I love my hobby, I never know what could be next
I've been doing competitions on and off for while. I recently won two items, one being season 4 of the Modern Family, which is such a funny show. I also won a £50 voucher from justanother.co.uk, I bought two t-shirts with that from them.
I'm still hoping to win something like an iPad or a PS4, soon hopefully :)
There's a few instant win competitions that last a long time, and one of them is the Juice Burst spin game. You have to use an app called 'Blippar' on your phone, scan a bottle (or picture) of a juice burst and a spin game comes up.
I've been playing this game for quite some months now, nearly everyday, until the last day of October when I got 3 in a row and won a case of juice! They also give away an iPad every month.
The good thing about these type of competitions is that some people may not have a smart phone to use the app so you have a better chance of winning if you keep at it!
So never give up on those seemingly hard to win daily instants!
