I always read the advice given from The Prize Finder, and try to take notice to improve my comping. One great tip was to look locally for competitions. I had always wanted to go on an old fashioned steam train, as my late Dad loved them, so this was a prize on the wishlist.
I scoured the small free newspapers, and saw that there was a text draw for a day trip to York on a vintage steam train with dining included.
I made my text and forgot...about 3 weeks later the company rang me and told me I had won! A day trip to York on the train and back with 3 course breakfast on the way there, and dinner on the way back. We had a wonderful time - the food, service and views were wonderful (and the free Champagne!). A real treat that I wouldn't have bought for myself, but that was out of this world!
I enter all sorts of competitions through this site, always with the hope of winning something. When I entered a competition on the Pukka Pie Facebook page I didn't think anymore of it until I received an e-mail saying that I had been picked as one of their 100 Pukka Pie-oneers. I was sent 30 pie vouchers and part of the deal was you had to post a picture of your pie dinner on their Facebook page and your details would be sent to your local newspaper as part of the promotion. My local newspaper did get in touch and ran a story with a rather cheesy photo of me biting into a Pukka Pie! Cue the "Who ate all the Pies" jokes from everyone at work when the newspaper was printed. The great thing about this prize was that I was able to give some of the vouchers to friends and family so they could enjoy the pies as well.
Slightly belated HNY to all. I entered the ASUS 'Spot the Orc' Comp a little while ago (can't remember exactly when, or how I found it). Basically, for those that didn't find this comp, it was a picture from the game (I assume) with a tiny little Orc hidden in it, and you had to give the grid reference it was in. I had completely forgotten about it, as I had no record of entering. Received a WEM last week to say that I had won a copy of the Shadow Of Mordor game, so I was expecting the usual Jiffy bag to arrive. I was puzzled today, when I returned home to find a largish, soft package. When I opened it, you can imagine my surprise when it contained not only the game, but a Hobbit 'Battle of the Five Armies' tote bag, cap and bookmark, along with an ASUS pen and jotter pad.
Not a bad start to the year, with a win, and a better than expected prize. Happy comping and good luck to all.
I never usually win much but luckily I kept comping. December/January have been the best months for me as I won a fair few prizes. I won an Oreo treat box from Cupcakes.co.uk which was lovely and didn't last very long.
I also won a DyeForYarn bundle from Letsknit. It had 4 skeins of yarn worth around £20 each. Now I just have to find something to make for them but there to nice to use!
My best prize which was from the December advents was a Magnitone Lucid Exfoliator brush by Pixie Lott worth around £60 from The Hut which has been the biggest prize I've won so far.
Won these fab trainers in December! They are amazing and are very comfy too, and I love the fab colours on them :)
These awesome new trainers will deffo help me stick to my new year's resolution to get fit. lol
Good luck for the rest of the year people!!!
January has been a very poor month in wins wise, but I'm going to stick at the comps and see what Febuary brings!! Hopefully a nice big win.
I've never won anything really and started entering competitions seriously just after Christmas. Today I won two tickets to London Fashion Week and then an hour later I won a Cath Kidston lunch box! I'm delighted - such a buzz! I was starting to wonder if I was wasting my time but I'm definitely going to keep entering competitions now! And all thanks to ThePrizefinder.com .
Although it takes a lot of time and effort, comping really is a worthwhile hobby. I've been entering competitions for a year or two now, and only ever use The Prize Finder to find competitions to enter as it's trustworthy and so easy to navigate. One of my first wins was a KitchenAid toaster worth around £170, and since then I've won numerous books and DVDs, a £70 squash racket, false eyelashes, two storage/laundry bags, and other smaller prizes. My most recent win arrived today which is a Homedics Shiatsu Massage Cushion and a relaxing bath box of Aromatherapy Associates worth around £70 altogether - feeling very lucky! My best advice for any new compers is to not give up, keep entering and you will get something. After all, somebody has to win!
Having. Returned to work after maternity leave I have had to be seriously picky about what I Emter due to time being short! It has reduced what I win but what I have won recently has been perfect!
I have won 2 pairs of tickets to the football so have been able to spend some quality time with my dad andmy boyfriend too.
I won a £100 voucher for an online food company called cook food.net this meant I could fill my freezer and not cook for the week! How amazing!!
That's why I love this hobby. You find new products and services, get surprises through the post, the odd voucher means I can have guilt free treats!
I'd love a holiday (who wouldn't?!) and anything house related as I'm moving house this year due to fast outgrowing our one bed flat!!
Thanks for all the work on prize finder.
