Hello everyone! How was your week, any nice...
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!
After a year-long winning drought (despite entering lots of comps), I finally received a winner's email this week to tell me I am one of the winners of the Radisson Blu Social Eyes competition. The prize is a free night at any of their participating hotels worldwide. The competition involved providing travel tips for cities where Radisson Blu have hotels, and winners were picked each week. I entered a couple of tips about hidden cocktail bars in London and Birmingham and was thrilled to win in the very last week of the competition. I'm planning to use the prize to stay in a 5 star London hotel with my best friend and go in search of more quirky cocktail bars :-).
Significant prizes won to date (all from skill-based comps):
- Night in Radisson Blu hotel (Sept 2014)
- All inclusive week in Mauritius (Hayes and Jarvis, 2013)
- £3000 Exodus travel vouchers (2011).
I started comping again 3 weeks ago. I went straight back to ThePrizeFinder as I won my Christmas Kelly Bronze Turkey with their help 4 years ago. Guess what?... An email arrived yesterday from Tastebuds Magazine to say that I have won a three course meal for two and an overnight stay at Mill End Hotel in Devon. Thank you! My husband and I are so looking forward to this treat.
It was on a dark, wet January day this year that I received a call from Paramount Pictures stating I'd won a trekking holiday for 2 to Mont Blanc!
This was a promotional competition for the film Nebraska and was being run by The Daily Telegraph.
I remember entering the competition through Theprizefinder.com and this win was just the tonic, as I was recovering from back injuries sustained from a serious car crash in December 2013.
Getting fit to enjoy this trip was my goal. In August 2014 I took my brother, and we flew to Geneva with Swissair, transferred to Chamonix and began our 14 day trek around Mont Blanc, visiting France, Switzerland and Italy.
It was a superb trip with a challenging 105 miles walked in total over the 2 weeks, with 12 other people in the group. We all camped in tents every night and this added to a great Alpine experience.
Thanks to Theprizefinder.com for telling me about it in the first place.
The old adage that you have to be in it to win it is so true. I have had two more wins, we were having a quite summer holiday at home, though not through choice. So I had been entering every competition going for tickets to the Lollybop Festival at Hatfield House, and got a family pass for a day, there was so much to do. I also won a DVD. I love my rock music, and won: "Don't Stop Believin: Everyman's Journey", the story of how a Youtube singer became the new vocalist for an old rock group, fascinating. I wonder if it could happen to me?
August has been a bit of a lean month really but I did win an Inbetweeners 2 t-shirt from Rollover Hotdogs on FB (loved the film) and also I was one of the winners of the recent Florette #SaladWars competition. I won John Lewis Orb weighing scales which is great, but I'm more excited about the fact that they're going to make my recipe (strawberry and peppercress creme brûlée) and it will be professionally photographed! This is the great thing about entering competitions; the scope to win that elusive money-can't-buy experience!
You can imagine my surprise when I heard that I'd won a year's supply of cider! It was a bit of a shock when 375 bottles showed up on my door step! The lorry couldn't get to my house so they left the pallet in the middle of the road, 25 crates of the stuff. Yum!
This month I won a prize high on the wish list. I am moving house in the coming year so therefore I am focussing heavily on homewear and appliances. I hunt these competitions out specifically and it's worked really well this month. I haven't won just little things this month but fewer really amazing big things.
From my wish list I've won -
An American fridge freezer
A washing machine
Love to shop vouchers
I've also won some cinema vouchers, which is great but getting to the cinema with a new baby is going to have to wait!!
I love the approach of enter what you need, so fulfilling to win and leaves spare time to enjoy the summer.
Thanks to TPF
Because of other things I had to do, I haven't done much comping for quite a while.
I started again just over a week ago, and obviously came back to ThePrizefinder. One of the first ones I entered was a simple retweet on the Argos Twitter page to win a Fisher Price Laugh and Learn House. I was thrilled to have a DM telling me I'd won.
There wasn't a picture of the prize so I was expecting a small parcel, with a little kiddies toy. I was quite surprised when the postie delivered a large box as high as my waist! It turns out to be a kiddies toy that is a bit bigger than I thought and sells at £59.99!
So even the prizes you know you've won can surprise you!
Here's hoping this is the sign of good prizes to come :-)
