Hello again everyone! How was your week, any...
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!
Busy and fairly disillusioned, I had given up comping for about 2 years. I decided to start again and immediately logged in to my old friend Theprizefinder. I entered approx 500-1000 comps a week. After the second week I had a mail to say my £1500 guess for £1523 worth of clothes had been the closest and I was a winner :) Happy days, I'm back addicted to comping again now :)
A dream of mine was always to win one of the fab competitions on Shortlist.com! Then one day that dream came true! I had an email from shortlist to say to ring them so I did! I had no idea what I'd won, and then the man on the phone said 3 nights in a 5 star hotel in Cape Town South Africa!! My jaw dropped. It included spending money too and I had to fly out the following week. I took a comping friend of mine and we loved every bit of it! An amazing place and we even got to walk around the movie studios where they are filming Black Sails! We'll never forget such an amazing win and amazing place!
I posted earlier this month about winning a luxury hotel stay in London. I was over the moon. However I received an email today saying I have won a trip for 2 to Melbourne. This includes flight tickets in business class on a new Dreamliner plane including transfers as well as top luxurious accommodation in 3 different hotels. A tour around Melbourne and a trip to see penguins. I cannot believe how lucky I have been.... excited!!!
I seem to have a "big win" every month and I'm always talking about them when submitting my winners stories for the month. Last month, my big win was my daughter's new bed and this month I won a £1200 Samsung Eco Bubble washing machine. It's out of this world, it's so high tech and absolutely incredible. I won this for submitting a silly dance that me and my daughter did called "Dance of the cycle" to AO.com. It's by far my biggest win yet and has come just over 11 months after I started comping. Nearly a year of comping.. happy anniversary to me :P
I've won a total of 48 prizes in May which aside from the washing machine included a Rimmel make up package, a BizzyBee cleaning bundle, a 2 night break on the south downs, a £50 Amazon voucher, a Morphy Richards kettle, London Retro prescription glasses, circus tickets, beer, icing etc..
I'm very grateful for my continued luck and my moto is "the harder you work, the more you win" so get going guys and good luck to all for June - Here's a pic of my incredible washing machine:) xx
I recently read your article on social media and was particularly interested in the advice about using Twitter.
A few days ago I entered a competition with FashionWorld where you had to post photos of "then and now". I uploaded a recent photo and one of me aged 3 dressed up as a knitting bag! (photo attached)
Only an hour ago I heard that I had won £150 voucher. I had a few problems working out how to direct message on Twitter but have finally managed it! It seems much easier on facebook.
I don't think I would have attempted to enter this comp if I had not read you helpful advice! So thank you very much!
I have also just won a case of cereal on the Dorset cereal game site.
An excellent day!
This month I've won loads of baby gear! Including a £100 gift box from Peekaboo Baby, a nappies bundle from CuddleDry and an NUK Disney baby soother.
I've also won a limited edition book, a T-shirt, lip gloss and a Father's Day bundle from Hotel Chocolat.
It's been such a great month for smaller wins and the £100 gift box really topped it off. Everything I've won this month has been a wonderful surprise. Good luck for June everyone. x
This month has been great, the two main things I've won have been based around colour! I won the Barbour Pantone photo competition, choosing the mans Barbour jacket and T-shirt from the Pantone collection. The second win was a bright red Gorenje washing machine for a photo of a colourful character in my life, I submitted my then baby bumps knitted elephant toy. Smaller wins include Sophie the giraffe teether and a jelly belly machine! Baby bump is now baby and entering competitions is a distant memory as my time and priorities have totally changed. I'll look out for and enter the odd few competitions for things we need or would like for our little family. :)
I'll have little time for effort comps, but my wish list continues to be a holiday, anything for our next home and vouchers/gift cards to help along with everyday life.
I have not had as much time to enter as many competitions as I would do normally in the past few months due to moving house and organising the final bits for my wedding. The last win I had was tickets to the Brit Awards this year which was a fantastic night back in February!
My dry spell was soon over though when I received a WEM from My Family Club/Canned foods saying I had won a £100 voucher for a supermarket of my choice! I straight away chose Tesco as we desperately needed some bits for the new house and the voucher came within two days of me confirming my choice so I was very impressed!
We spent the voucher on new bedding, curtain poles and curtains so it really couldn't have come at a better time for us!
I still always use The Prize Finder for competitions as it is so easy to use. With 4 weeks until the big day though, I think I will have to give up on my dream of winning a honeymoon!
