So a great month, and a great incentive to carry on comping in the
New Year. Good luck for 2014 everyone. x x
Months ago our young son entered a Disney competition by designing an Easter Card. He was lucky enough to win a family ticket to Disney on Ice! Then he had to wait several months till we could go to the O2 Arena for Disney on Ice (all the waiting was rather difficult for a 5 year old).
But it was well worth the wait....we'd done some internet research re: parking and souvenirs. And with free parking, some Mickey/Minnie mouse ears from the internet, and some snacks from the local supermarket, we had the most amazing day. We simply couldn't afford the prices of parking and £8/9 for popcorn/candy floss.
The Show was amazing and the whole family enjoyed it. It was our young son's first show...so Thank You to Disney on Ice, and my teenage daughter is never to old for a Disney show. With Snow White and the Dwarfs, Seeing Mickey and Minnie, Cinderella and the ugly stepsisters, and Rapunzel dancing with Prince Charming being some of our favourite moments.
I posted that I had a bit of beginners luck a few weeks ago and my luck has kept on going :)
Since then I've won;
Portable North Pole Package
Pack Of Peanuts
2 x Championship Boxing Tickets
2 For 1 Sea life Centre Voucher
Elasticiser by Phillip Kingsley
Full Lulu Kennedy Hair Meets Wardrobe Collection (pictured)
Breathless on DVD
The DVD just turned up in the post it was a lovely surprise! :)
I've spread my good luck it seems to some friends who are currently serving in Afghanistan who have taken up comping when they have some free time and one has just won an iPad :D
I've had an excellent month of wins, but am possibly the only member to have been entirely unlucky in the advent comps!
This month I've been lucky enough to receive a beautiful bunch of flowers, some sheepskin slippers (which I now seem to be surgically attached to), a Ted Baker iPad case, some luxury olive oil, a £50 John Lewis voucher and an £80 hamper of Divine chocolate.
I've also had some smaller goodies including a sea monkeys gift set, some beauty products and a breastfeeding set.
My family know me well and on Christmas day when they asked how many of the presents I'd actually paid for, I replied very proudly 'only one!'. I love being able to treat my family to gifts I know they will love and that would normally be way out of my price range. Plus a chocolate hamper to share just tops it!
I always look forward to Advents as they are usually fun and full of stocking fillers. Soon into the Advents I won a Heinz tea towel in a metal Ketchup Tin.
Thinking this was a good start to the advents I went on and entered all I could including a photo competition for American Express.
No wins for many days then out of the blue. "Congratulations!
You are a winner in the 12 Faces of Christmas bonus game, brought to you by American Express® Gift Cards.

A GRAND ADVENT..
2013 hasn't been a winning year for me. Mostly because I've had a lot less time on my hands with the arrival of our first baby. From the start of December I started to get back into comping and have had some nice little wins to show for it. I won two hand creams from a Palmers photo comp on Facebook. I love their stuff and the little handcream is the perfect size for your handbag. I won a knitted hand warmer from trade radiators by finding a hidden image on their website. I won a selection of goodies from the Telegraph Stella giveaway including root lift spray, two hand creams, Topshop highlighter and bath oil. My favourite win of all was an Asda instagram comp. You had to enter a pic of a product from their bakery. I entered a pic of my daughter with their yummy star waffles and scooped £100 in Asda vouchers. A nice win for the end of the year.
I've been comping on and off for years but since April I've been on a mission. I had some lovely wins including lots of event tickets (attending the Premiere of Red 2 was a highlight - see pic) but the big wins eluded me till this month. It began on the 3rd with £1250 worth of kitchen Aid goodies followed by a spa weekend, £100 internet voucher for a homeware site and some smaller gifts. To top it all on the 19th I received an email to say i had won my wedding worth £5000! I am overjoyed and without a doubt this is the best hobby ever! I can't wait to plan my wedding and my aim for 2014 is to win my honeymoon. My advice to anyone feeling blue is stick with it and enter as many comps as you can, I never thought I could win something this big but it does happen! Good luck everyone for the next year. xxx
Well, Christmas time and the age-old question, what to get my husband for Christmas. Well thanks to ThePrizefinder, a fully loaded Worx QBit arrived, courtesy of Argos. Present sorted and hubby surprised and delighted. What to get an older granddaughter? - a set of three classic books - excellent. What to get for stocking fillers for grandchildren who like making things? - a set of 6 mouseloft Christmas cross-stitch kits. Excellent. Everyone happy! Thank you Prizefinder. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas and wishing you a Happy and Healthy New Year, and lots of luck for 2014! Fingers crossed for a win with the Advent calendars.
