Hello everyone! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? Here we are again at the start of a new month and a new season too! The clocks have gone back, and Halloween has come and gone; in my books that’s just Bonfire Night to get past before we get to the big one – Christmas! You may have noticed lots of festive-themed competitions popping up all over the place already, and I for one can’t get enough of them! In a month’s time we will be starting the busiest comping season of the year – The Advents – so enjoy the calm before the storm this month before the prize frenzy kicks off!
October turned out to be a good month for me, netting me five great prizes! Let’s look at what I won:
- A family ticket to the local pantomime, from a Facebook comp
- An Odeon Cinema ticket, from a local radio Facebook comp
- A £5 Amazon voucher, from a Facebook comp
- An E45 hydration hamper, form an online comp
- A King Pong board game, from 50Connect online
This has made a great start to my Christmas gifts pile – I have squirreled the board game away as a present for my girls. I am especially pleased to have won the panto tickets, as I was keen to bag those! To be honest it was actually my mum who physically won the tickets, but I found the comp, tagged her in and made sure she knew when she won haha!
Let’s have a look now at what some of our lovely members have been winning during October 2017.
Prodigal got in touch to tell us that they were back in the “comping saddle” after a long break from the hobby. They have already started racking up the wins including a Marston’s’ t-shirt, some batteries and a Monkey Bingo game – welcome back and well done! Szekeres began the month well by winning a FreshPet hamper from a blog comp, and Romsnowden97 managed to win her husband some fabulous VIP tickets to see Arsenal play – what a great treat for him! Hamish666 had another great month winning such goodies as a Teletubbies CD, a Mokuru desk toy, a cookery book, three-months’ supply of Natracare Essentials, a toy storage unit and a children’s music CD – what an impressive haul! Villagefox had another prolific month too winning herself some lovely prizes including a Tiddly Tubby toy, a surprise Moana puzzle & memory game, an Anchor backpack, a pair of Stompeez, a Nerf gun and some action figures – the little people in your family will be having lots of fun this Christmas! The winning husband & wife team of Joan and her husband continued to be a force to be reckoned with this month as they won some top prizes such as an Intempo Vinyl Albums Collection, £200 worth of blinds and some car air conditioning cleaner – the family that comp together really do reap the rewards don’t they!
November is a great time to start taking stock of your comping habits ahead of The Advents! Focus on the kind of prizes you would like to win, what kind of comps you would like to enter and how you will keep track of your entries and wins. Some people like to keep a Comping Wish List (either in a notebook or as a digital copy) to help give them focus with their comping, and this is a good time of year to get one sorted out! We will be giving you more hints and tips for the Advent season in a few weeks, but for new just take a deep breath, enjoy your hobby and do let us know how you get on with your November comping, we love to read your winners’ stories.
Happy comping everyone, and lots of Lucky dust to you all!

Bit of a washout for prizes this November but my husband has just received The Antiques Roadshow 40 Years Of Great Finds book. No card to say who won from but my husband is almost certain he won it in a Mature Times competition.
Another instant win for me with Hobgoblin, a tshirt :-)
My son had a surprise delivery of a bundle of Roblox toys. No note to say where it was from but I assume that it was a magazine win as it was addressed to him.
