Hello everyone! How was your week, any nice wins to report? Crazy to be saying but here we are in July! Seems like only yesterday we were in March, and now we are half way through the year. The summer holidays are looming with plans of holidays to Spain, camping trips and lots of beach time, so I suspect my comping will diminish over the next few months. I wasn’t a prolific comper during June but I am pleased to say I still managed to win seven nice prizes, so let’s take a look at what I won:
- A large pizza, from the Papa John Euro2016 promotion
- A Just4Baby changing bag set, from the Sudocrem Facebook instant win
- A year’s worth of natural deodorant, from a Twitter comp
- A seven day Slim-Fast starter kit from their weekly Twitter party
- A pair of tickets to the relaunch of our local soft play, from their facebook page
- A surprise Back-roads Bristain book, from Primary Times
- A picnic rug or a National Trust book, from the Britmums Twitter party
As you can see the bulk of my comping efforts last month were with social media comps. Even when I am working hard I still like to try and do as many Twitter parties as I can, as I have such a good success rate with them – I have won seven times so far this year, so on average more than one a month! My favourite win though is probably the Slim-Fast kit, as I am on a bit of a health kick before our holiday and this was something I really wanted to win!
Right, let’s take a look at what some of our lovely members have been winning during June 2016:
Sloopy123 had a nice start to the month by winning a Ramones t-shirt from The Vinyl Shed, and szekeres101 started on the right track too by bagging a £250 voucher for a Farm Stay. Tarnie13 was on a winning streak this month by winning seven comps in two days including a vintage London artwork, some tennis balls, some nail polishes, a loaf of Soreen, some nuts, a bag and a t-shirt – brilliant! Kayaaaa was back in her comping rhythm this month and has managed to win herself such lovely things as a night’s stay in Newcastle, a watch, a B&Q voucher and a father’s day bracelet – well done on your wins and welcome back! Meeman had a fab surprise win turn up of a Morphy Richards Supervac – I do wish companies would add at least a compliments slip in with their prizes, so we know who to thank! AmyLaighF will be festival ready with the great festival kit she won on Twitter, and helen11 is planning an ultimate night in with the kit she won from Closer magazine that includes a wine making kit, a chocolate fountain, disco ball, speaker and game – fab! JoanneMinky had a brilliant winning phone call from Capital Radio to tell her she had won a Nutri-bullet, GoPro Hero 4, Bose earphones and £300 of gym kit – perfect for the pre-summer fitness kick we all have! Hamish666 continued their winning ways by bagging prizes including two DVDs, 200 laundry tablets and a bottle of Coldzyme – what useful prizes you are winning lately! Arfalager broke their dry spell by winning a fab chocolate hamper this month, and I bet Buttons23’s son was pleased with the Euro2016 goodies they won. VillageFox had a steady stream of wins this month including a weekend pass to a jazz festival including camping, some Angry Birds t-shirts, a Frankie & Benny’s voucher, a Q-park, a DVD, a Tesco Filling Station mug, a prize from the Miffy Twitter party and a signed Michael Morpurgo book – great stuff!
I think the title of “Most Prolific Comper” this month probably has to go to a couple actually – Joan and her husband have had a fabulous winning month! Between them they have won such amazing prizes as an electric lawnmower worth £340, some Stella Artois challises and beer, a hamper of goodies, some vinyl and CDs, a Breezy Bed, a Ciccio Bello doll, a laundry hanging Sheila Maid, some hair products and some DVDs – phew what a haul! I love to hear about families all joining in to enter competitions together – my husband and children love a comp too. It’s great when you have a supportive family to help with your comping efforts, and even better when they start inning prizes too! Well done you two!
