Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Well, here we are in August – can’t quite believe it! We are more than half way through the year already now, and time seems to be rushing on quicker every month! I have already started to see Christmas themed competitions starting to creep onto my social media feeds – yikes! I am not complaining though as Christmas is my fave time of year and the sooner I am allowed to start to get excited about it the better! July was a very slow starting month for me and was punctuated by quite a lot of little wins, considering I didn’t really have very much time to comp during it. I managed to win 17 prizes during the month, and here is a run-down of what they were:
- Travel ticket wallet, from the Yazoo instant win
- Udo’s & Debbie & Andrew’s goody bag, from their Facebook comp
- Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish, from Emerald Street
- Can of Red Bull, from SoPost
- WorldSim data card and £20 credit, from their daily photo competition
- 5 books from Goodreads
- Sylvanian Families cards, from their Twitter competition]
- £25 John Lewis voucher, form a Twitter party
- £50 Fayre & Square food voucher, from Bella on twitter
- Dancing “Oh” toy, surprise win from Sparkle World Magazine
- “Stud Muffins” horse treats, surprise win from Horse & Countryside Magazine
- Football sweets, from the Sky Sports daily
- Inside Out brush time kit, from the Aquafresh text comp
Having written it all down it looks like quite an impressive haul, considering I wasn’t able to comp as much as usual due to having the kids home and having to fit work around them too. I think my favourite win this month was the little pack of Sylvanian Families playing cards that I won. I am keeping them back for my eldest at Christmas – she is a massive collector and I have been very lucky to win her quite a few Sylvanian bits over the last year or so and I know she will be chuffed with these.
Right, enough about me, let’s take a look at what everyone else has been winning over the last month:
Despite the school holidays xxme2uxx still managed to have a great comping month winning herself such fab prizes as a £25 PayPal cheque from a blog comp, a place on a “Mentor Me Off Sugar” programme worth £140 from Netmums, a pair of pillows worth £80 from Social Discount Network on Facebook, and an InvisiBra worth £47 from a blog comp – great work! Danielle.cribb1990 managed to break her winning dry spell this month by bagging herself a seven seas goody bag, and Sloopy123 won a brilliant Lego Pitstop set in a Twitter comp – great prizes! Several members won prizes with the Zoflora instant win including xxme2uxx, and kylie1dw managed to win one of the coveted hampers that Cartridge Save give away across social media every week – well done! Gorts17 had some lovely wins this month including a Johnsons’ baby travel pack from Emma’s Diary and a luxurious golf break at Celtic Manor – think someone’s hubby will be rather pleased! Laurajanes had some great comping success this moth too winning prizes including £20 John Lewis voucher from Florette, a car care kit form Twitter, chocolate orange from a co-op swipe to win comp and a £65 Trespass suitcase from an Instagram win – a great mix of prize entry routes there!
I think the title of “most prolific comper” this month has to go to Laura44v. Over the course of the last month she has managed to win such wonderful prizes as an all-singing, all-dancing fridge freezer worth £419 from ao.com on Facebook, a pair of Bang & Olufsen headphone worth £120, a child’s bike worth £300 from Mojomums, a cross-stitch book, a healthy eating book and 2 bottles of Ace washing liquid – phew! That’s quite some haul Laura! I must remember to steal some of your lucky dust when you aren’t looking, haha!
