After what seemed like a very long wait, just like buses three prizes came along at once!! And on a Friday too, a very good start to the weekend.
Firstly I won an instant prize on the All Bran daily, then I had an email to say I'd won a bottle of Lambrini (another FB comp), then through the post I received 2 lipbalms from a Superdrup/Carmex FB comp.
All small prizes but a very BIG boost for comping morale!
Happy comping all.
Last August I was off work with a broken wrist feeling very miserable when the phone rang. A lady asked if I remembered entering a competition on the Carte Noire Facebook page. I did. She said I had won the first prize - a 5* 10 night luxury trip for 2 to Thailand. I nearly fainted! The prize was 3 nights at the Four Seasons Bangkok and 7 nights at the Banyan Tree Phuket including flights and £1000 prize money!
We planned our trip for April and began to research where we were staying. One night my other half said "It looks like a fabulous place to get married" and that was it. We contacted the hotel in Phuket and chose a wedding package. We didn't tell anyone what we were doing and planned everything in secret!
Then on 14th April, on our magical holiday we got married on Bang Tao beach in Phuket. It was magical and it only happened because of this wonderful prize and you wonderful ThePrizeFinder peeps!
It began last June with a simple competition asking me to 'fashion a religion' for PC gamers. It was a curious concept and one that puzzled me, but none the less I piled hours into research and drawing (And I'm no artist!) and come the next month I was the new owner of a £1000 PC. This is where my addiction began.....
Months followed and I was homing in on every skill-based comp there was, in order to fulfill my desire for more prizes. Poems, photos, paintings, stories....I did them all, and whether it was a jar of honey or some new flip-flops, I could not help but feel pleased with myself for my newly-found creative streak.
Of course, I'm too busy now with work to 'comp' as I did several months ago. But I'm still keeping my eye out for those few comps that challenge my creativity (regardless of the prize). Anyhow, here's my latest win from J20. Got some friends to go paintballing and bought £10 of J20 and ouila! - another prize to be proud of.
I've always enjoyed entering competitions occasionally, but I never really entered more than 5 a week, until about a month ago when I discovered ThePrizeFinder! I read all the winners stories and got excited about the thought of winning prizes, but after about 3 weeks of entering tons of competitions and not winning anything I was about to give up, when out of the blue I won some Rise of the Guardian goodies from the National Geographic Kids website! I didn't even know they were coming until the postman delivered them :-) My kids were really pleased!
This is my first win!
I am off to LONDON this Sunday with a friend to enjoy this evening!
I hope it will be the first of many, as I am now entering competitions from the Prize Finder site links daily to increase probability!
This site is fantastic and I am so grateful you give out most of the answers to the questions often asked on these competitions.
I have been entering competitions for about a year now and had a few small wins. I have been on maternity leave, after having my second daughter and found comping a good way of passing some time and having fun.
I was particularly lucky at Christmas Time with the Facebook Advent Competitions - I won a lovely children's story book courtesy of Marks & Spencer and various other small prizes, such as Baseball caps from Weird Fish, they were handy for giving as stocking fillers at Christmas and a year's supply of Salad Cream - Mmmm Lovely!!
And of course a Christmas Hamper from The Prize Finder.
I need to tell you about my latest win though.......

I was so excited when I received the email and did not believe it until it arrived yesterday by courier.
So ..... Keep comping folks and it could be you soon!
I noticed a friend of mine on Facebook talking about winning prize after prize, and when I asked her secret she told me about The Prize Finder. I have now been entering comps for the last couple of months and had the odd small win but nothing to get too excited about. However over 8 days at the start of May I won 5 times.
Firstly I got an email telling me I had won 2 tickets to a secret gig in London, which is really exciting because I am taking my best friend, who I hardly see due as we live 200 miles apart, and also because the friend who got me into comping also won tickets. A couple of days later I got an email telling me I had won a pair of Premier tickets for Ladies Night at Exeter Racecourse, followed the next day by another email saying I'd won the book and DVD that accompany the BBC Africa series.
24 hours later my husband jokingly asked what I had won that day. I laughingly told him nothing but within 10 minutes struck it lucky with a £10 Costa voucher via the Freederm daily play game. Then last but not least I won a £20 voucher which is going on a skin for my Kindle.
One day I'd love to win one of the big prizes, a car, holiday or cash but these are awesome treats that I probably wouldn't have bought myself. It was lovely to take my Mum to the races and get dressed up, something we wouldn't usually have done. I'm definitely a devotee to comping these days!
I’ve won a few things over the past 3 months whilst been unemployed, however the win which has made me smile the most is the cinema tickets from Odeon from the E-ON comp advertised on you Facebook page. It's little things like this me and my partner wouldn't usually be able to afford and now we can go for a treat and even buy some treats as they have also thrown in a £10 snack voucher! Thanks ThePrizefinder for helping me spend precious moments with my partner.
