Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Just one for me which was a Nick Junior goody bag in the latest UKMums.tv Twitter party. I love twitter parties and have great success in winning with them. If you haven’t joined in with one yet you really should do! I will write a blog about it in the next few weeks and give you some hints and tips on how to participate. Did you get all the End of Month (EOM) comps done for May? I had a super-busy week last week and left the EOMs rather too late, but still managed to get through the ones I wanted to enter.
May was a pretty average month for me, totalling 10 prizes for the month. Again mainly small-ish prizes, but here is a run-down of what I won:
- Hamper of Bear Nibbles snacks, from an Instagram comp
- A pair of walking boots, from Millets on Facebook
- A pencil case, from a Facebook comp
- A box of After Eight mints, from their daily comp on Facebook
- A child’s onesie, from a twitter comp
- A set of gourmet burger relishes, from The Gourmet Burger Kitchen on Facebook
- A children’s book and poster, from Gransnet on twitter
- A family ticket to Ryde Superbowl, from a local Facebook comp
- A twin pack of Spanish sauces, from the Holland & Barrett hourly comp on Facebook
- A Nick Junior goody bag, from the UKMums.tv Twitter party
Safe to say my comp wins this month have been sponsored by the phrase “social media”. When time is short, such as last week with the kids being home, I find that I tend to do lots of quick entry comps, like the social media ones, rather than putting the time in for creative entry comps. I haven’t had much comping time at all the last week or so, so I am gratified that I am still managing to win prizes even though I am not entering the lower-entry more creative competitions. My favourite win last month was probably the hamper of Bear Nibbles sweets, as the children love them and they are perfect to keep in my handbag for summer trips out. The gourmet burger relishes are lovely too, as they are something I wouldn’t normally have bought but am very much enjoying using.
Enough about me, let’s see what all you lovely people have been winning during May 2015:
Sloopy123 had a fab win from Netmums of a My First Thomas toy from Fisher Price, and villagefox had a surprise Kids Cook French book turn up – some happy children this month I bet! Xxme2uxx scored some lovely prizes month including Igloo vouchers, a Geek Girl DVD box-set, a pamper pack, a £109 Brabantia rotary drier and several packs of Drummond Park games bundles from blog comps! Gorts17 will have some happy little people too, as they won a family ticket to go and see Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom during the summer holidays – I love winning prizes that can be used as days out! Cheryla19 will be sprucing up her home this spring with the Xpelair Silent Bathroom fan she won from a Good Homes competition, and annii80 won some lovely items including a Hot Diamonds necklace, craft goodies, lingerie and a Pyrex bundle! Kslade had a very lucky month winning herself a horror DVD and a Kingstone Press t-shirt as well as a super prize bundle from the Onken on-pack promotion. Laurajanes had some lovely wins including Lipsmacker lip balms (am trying to win these for my eldest), a changing bag from oBaby and a Joseph & Joseph goody bag, and Laura44v was a lucky thing winning a baby monitor from Tomy & Netmums, 12 bottles of Kumala wine from a blog comp, a Treasure Houses golden pass worth £300 and a GHD Creative Curls hair styling wand.
I think the title of “most Prolific Winner” this month goes to Joan who had a great month winning such delights as a hamper from Ottolenghi containing fine wines, sherries and foods worth £500, A Kobo e-reader worth £140 and a Sherlock Holmes DVD collection both from Woman magazine and a bottle of perfume from Fragrance Direct! What an impressive haul, keep up the good work in June!
The best useful small prizes that are being won this month seem to be the £4 lunch vouchers that people are winning from the Walkers on-pack promotion. Purchase a promotional pack of crisps and you could be winning £4 to spend on lunch at your favourite supermarket or local store, as long as it also includes a packet of Walkers Crisps – who says there is no such thing as a free lunch!
Let us all know how you get on with June’s comps by commenting below with your wins. Don’t forget to upload a photo of your wins too for a chance to win a £50 voucher here.
I look forward to hopefully being able to share more of my own wins next month, and to reading all about yours!
Happy comping everyone, and lots of Lucky dust to you all!
Had an email yesterday saying I'd won 4 tickets to the O2 in Shepherds Bush to see Gorgon City from Kiss FM, then today a parcel turned up with some Aden and Anais goodies via Anabel Karmel. I didn't know I'd won and had to do some investigating to find out where they came from, but the prize is worth £130! Perfect for my second baby who is due in August. After no wins since my iPad in March, I'm back to winning!
