Our August Wins

Submitted by SuperluckyDi on Thu, 2013-08-08 10:32

We're already a week into August - sorry I'm so late getting the wins post up! I moved house last week and have had a bit of trouble getting online. Still, we're all settled in and now I need to get winning a new bathroom, kitchen, carpets, blinds, garden makeover… that should keep me busy for a while!

Thanks to all the compers who told us about their fab July wins on last month's Wins post. Paul408091 had a surprise Blu Ray player delivered, dnevers had a win of a £400 camera from Stylist, The Tigster joined Twitter and won Alton Towers tickets and a Filofax, Melsiebug won a VIP Goodwood trip with Marie Claire, emmat1988 won a holiday to Majorca, Hello Clare won a Eurocamp holiday, Scolyn1 had her first win of a £150 Joe Browns voucher, Abrajules won £500 of beauty goodies. Frilly Tilly won £1000 with Heart, and HottubDave has even won a starring role in a TV ad! And jjandmattybb won Mr Tumble's hat (yes, I'm jealous again!).

Good luck for August everyone - post your wins as a comment below, and don't forget to upload a photo to the Winners Page too for a chance to win a £50 voucher in our monthly prize draw - congratulations to Sharon Taylor, our July winner!

Won an xbox with defiance and a signed copy of the game a week ago, then today I had a phone call from heart saying I'd won a £100 IKEA voucher. Last week I had a map of the world worth £120 delivered. Also won some sea monkeys and a book as well as wagamama goodies. I forget what I win!

I have been using this site for a month, no win's so far but love the site.

I had a look in my junk mail (checking for win) and was happy to see a message from M&S BANK regarding £500 Vouchers.
So thought I had won some vouchers......I clicked on the link as they needed to confirm my information to send me the vouchers then :( It turns out that they wanted my bank details.

I decided not to give my information, but was wondering if any of you have had the same email and what was the outcome?

You need to be very wary of this type of email supposedly from a big company - check the email address it's come from carefully, and if it's not from @marksandspencer.com then it's usually dodgy! You can always spot spelling and grammar mistakes in the email content too, so read it carefully before clicking. Hope you get your big win soon!

I get lots of spam winning emails into my junk folder, most of them have spelling mistakes and ask me to 'confirm my informations'. The link is often things like coffeeoffer or berryoffer. I also have a lot of emails informing me that my address has won a prize, again wanting me to 'confirm informations'. I just delete them. If you're in doubt you could call M&S bank customer service, even if you've not won at least you'd be informing them of a scam email going round using their brand identity? x

I agree with linda1949 about tv competitions.
I enter Daybreak, This Morning,and other tv comps about six times, never won. I think if you do it through telephone you have more chance .Is there anyone out there who has won doing online tv comps.

I think this has been my slowest comping moth ever, just three prizes. Special K cereal and bars and ecover washing liquid, from their respective instant wins, and a bottle of Olay moisturiser from goodness knows where as there was no note.
