Hello everyone! How is your week going, 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!
I recently won a competition with Giovanni Rana to visit their London flagship restaurant for a pasta making class and a 3 course meal for Valentines day! The trip included train tickets and overnight accomodation, and was the perfect way to spend a romantic weekened! It was something that we couldn't have afforded to do otherwise, so was such a treat. We can't wait to make pasta at home now, lets see if it comes out anywhere near the same without professional guidance.
I've often maintained that our comping hobby gives us things we would never dream of. We are just back from a night away in the very plush Rosewood Hotel Covent Garden (5* luxury)where we had a gorgeous 3 course meal at the BT Tower and Q & A with Rio Ferdinand. Back at the hotel, they have a fleet of chauffeurs and low and behold there was this Aston Martin Rapide, which one of the drivers got the keys for and let hubby sit in it and revv it up. For once in a photo I didn't have to tell hubby to smile!! Now they are looking for a new bond.....
This month has brought two lovely wins for me.
The first was a portable PlayStation Vita console from the Daily Express competitions. This was a great surprise!
Then I received an email from The Lady magazine saying I'd won £50 of health food products in one of their competitions. Absolutely wonderful!
During February half term we enjoyed the short break to Cumbria that I won a few months ago with Smooth Radio and NS&I. It was so lovely, the prize was a dog friendly holiday and we had lots of long walks and a beautiful barn conversion with log fire.
Definitely some time spend enjoying some of my best wins this month. Good luck in the Easter competitions everyone!
February got off to a bang this month as on 2nd Feb I won a holiday to Marmaris, all inclusive for my family :) We're going at the end of May.. we're completely thrilled and the picture I've attached is of the resort we're staying in :)
I also won 39 other prizes in February but to me, this is definitely the best! Thanks to Thomas Cook who are providing the holiday :)
I've had four wins in February. Firstly a face mask from a Twitter comp, there were a 1090 to giveaway, then a kids book called Aerodynamics of Biscuits from Primary Times, then my first blog win, a snazaroo face painting kit (see pic) and a hobgoblin thirst from an instant win.
I have been doing comp on and off for a number of years, previously won some fab prizes, met the Stereophonics, been to London and Paris. This prize is my first Facebook win and the first win of the year, a treat for the hubby and I £25 cone world voucher, cinema and popcorn can't wait, let's hope it's the start of more to come.
I won a Tapas experience from a simple Twitter competition. My husband and I joined other winners and food bloggers at the New Town Cookery School in Edinburgh. There we met TV chef and restaurant owner Omar Allibuoy. We were taught how to make meals incorporating olives. My Steve became an olive convert! We had such a fun evening and yet again experienced something we otherwise would not have done thanks to comping.
I had already had quite a few nice wins this year and was pretty pleased. I had won a bonsai tree from a gardening comp, a £120 sports watch from a jewellery comp and a divine chocolate hamper from OK magazine (which my husband and I devoured in a weekend!)Then two weeks ago I had a phone call from a lovely man from Magic FM informing me that I had won a grand from a competition that I entered with McCain. All I had to do was write about the good stuff that happened at tea time. I just wrote honestly about what had happened and the conversations that took place over my families tea time that weekend. I never dreamt that I would actually stand a chance of winning and I still can't believe it even though the money is now sitting in my bank account. My family have also been asked to submit a short 5-10 second video of us all sat round the table at tea time enjoying our tea for McCain to use in their next TV ad. I am still trying to convince all of my family to take part!
