Hello everyone! How was your weekend, 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!
Thank you so much Theprizefinder!
We have just arrived back from a fabulous holiday in Wilder Kaiser, Austria. A wonderful prize from Twinings tea, entered after finding it on your site!
Twinings & Wilder Kaiser were fantastic, allowing us to pay extra to take our son along too!
This is a holiday that we would have never considered booking, we are normally found on a sun lounger on a hot beach lol, but we had one of our best holidays ever. Best of all it has opened our eyes to a whole new array of holiday possibilities for the future!
We climbed mountains, waded through rivers, abseiled & sang drinking songs in a traditional Austrian pub!
This is a photo of my wife wading through mud in Scheffau on the Kneipp trail, a kind of holistic walk through the forest with various stations, all invented by a doctor to promote well being. Even after all the walking we had done, I felt like my feet had wings after the Kneipp trail!
We even managed a 2 days at the mountain side swimming pool in Ellmau, so the sunbeds were not entirely deserted!
I have only really started entering competitions in the last few weeks while the kids were off school and took over my TV every morning on my days off work.
I never thought I would win anything but today I came home to a parcel a Huge Bag of Palmers Skin Products! Soooo pleased :-) Kids go back to school tomorrow and now on my mornings off I'll still be entering competitions!!
Thanks PrizeFinder, it makes finding competitions so much easier.
I lost my blogging mojo over the summer and had almost given up. I entered the odd competition here and there (mostly on Twitter) and won a couple of good bits - a St Tropez Tanning Set, bluetooth headphones, tickets to the Southport Flower Show and a Tapas Revolution Cooking book.
Then I was checking Facebook when I saw the Rice Krispies Smiler post to win Alton Towers tickets with the addition of a Smiler Fast Track pass - I started my carriage and called my mum, dad and husband to get to and on our first attempt we won!
Spurred on by my success I decided to head back to ThePrizeFinder on Thursday night and clicked on to the Closing Soon page - I entered about 5 competitions before shutting my laptop and heading to bed too tired.
The next day I was shopping in ASDA after work when my phone rang from a London number - It was XFM!! I'd won £1,000 and a crate of Bulmers in their final weekly draw. I had entered it just the night before by telling them my song to start the weekend! I'm ecstatic - you never let me down TPF!!! Now my mojo's well and truly back!!!
I wasn't convinced about the authenticity of doing online competitions until my partner started doing them last year and had a few nice household wins, nothing worth more than about £50 per prize but enough to make me want to give it a go myself! Within my first few days I couldn't believe my luck when I won a case of beer through a Facebook competition that I simply had to like and share! That was in June. And to my surprise a large white van pulled up outside my house last week with a princess musical potty I entered for my daughter who is only 6 months at the moment but it's a nice win to put away! We are hoping that between us we may be able to win something we cant afford ourselves such as a holiday or some cash to help us out. Either way we are fighting over the computer each night now!
I started using the Prize Finder at the beginning of August and have won many prizes throughout the month. I have been lucky enough to win cocoa powder, nail art, hair products, tablet case, bikini and razor, a picnic hamper worth £60, a book, silver bunting necklace, Liz Earle cleanse and polish, face masks, Fudges hamper, £25 Amazon voucher, mascara AND a baking masterclass worth up to £160 + a Whitworths sugar goody bag!
Thank you so much to ThePrizeFinder, I will continue to use this website when I go back to university..it's lovely to win nice things I wouldn't normally be able to afford to buy. I love my new hobby so much! :)
Here's hoping next month will be just as good, or has my beginner's luck run out? Only time will tell!
Here are a few of my prizes (I haven't received many yet) :)
I entered the Casillero del Diablo Ultimate Diablo Burger challenge. They gave 30 prizes away. I made a pork burger with five spice, served with prawn crackers and a hot and sour chilli sauce dip. I was chosen as one of the lucky winners. They delivered the BBQ to my house. It was a rather large BBQ. We had trouble putting it together. They also delivered 6 bottles of Casillero del Diablo wine on the same day. The meat box was delivered the next day. It consisted of 4 burgers, sausages, chicken drumsticks and sirloin steak and also 4 burger buns. It was delivered on a bank holiday. It was a lovely hot day. So we enjoyed a lovely BBQ in our own garden and had plenty of wine to drink. It was a really good prize.
I have had a fantastic month for winning, but cant put it down to anything other than one of those phases!
I've won a Rough Guide and a Footprint travel guide - great because I love to travel. My biggest win was a Samsung Galaxy Tab from Appliances Online via their live stream which was very exciting.
I've won a couple of Amazon vouchers, which I always appreciate, one was from Discovery foods on Instagram. I've won a couple of things on Twitter this month too, both involving for some effort. One was a Mini fridge from Currys PC World for submitting a photo of a unique way to keep cool this summer. The second was travel speakers from Cheapflights.
Finally, I entered a photo into the MARS Milk competition for a summer of play kit back in April, and I won that out of the blue last week. The kit is FAB!
This months effort/creative competitions have paid off for me, but I have been just a bit more lucky than normal. It comes to us all, so keep going if you're in a dry spell.
No big wins for me but just a little CD. It was a CD of Tunes and Stories by The Look, from 50-connect. It has been autographed by The Look. It may be small but it was still appreciated. And you never know, it could turn the corner for some bigger wins on the horizon. They say things comes in threes, and who knows with the end of the month approaching......
