Hello everyone! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? Can you believe it – here we are in 2018! I sincerely hope you and your loved ones had an amazing Christmas and end to the year and are starting the new year refreshed, reinvigorated and ready to hit the ground running with your comping in 2018!
If you receive our weekly newsletters you will know that 2017 wasn’t a bad year for me at all. I managed to win almost £2,000 of lovely prizes, over 45 individual items. Compared to last year I have won less actual prizes, but almost doubled the prize value. I had some great wins this year including a PS4 from the Walkers Snap n Share, an iPad Mini from BT on Twitter and three tickets to see Ariana Grande with four bottles of perfume from Top of The Pops Magazine. I have been working so much this year that my actual comping time has decreased, so I have had to be much more selective about the comps I enter. I think that explains why my total number of prize wins has gone down, but as I have been choosier about prizes the value of those I have won has increased in line with this.
So, what’s on my Comping Wish List for 2018? Cash, and lots of it for a start as we are trying to buy a house this year! That elusive family holiday is also high on my list, as I still haven’t managed to win one in all these years of comping! I am as always trying to win things for my girls including makeup, Harry Potter items, toys and games. I would really like to win my husband something nice like a football stadium tour or concert tickets, as his own passions have had to take a back seat while we have been so busy working. All in all, my Comping Wish List is pretty much the same as last year, I just need to keep plodding on towards my goals and have faith that my hard work will pay off!
Now let’s take a little look at what everyone has been winning during December 2017:
Joanneminky won a lovely necklace from Mother & Baby magazine and a hamper of England football merchandise including tickets to a match of her choice – what a great selection of wins! Villagefox ended the year well by winning such goodies as a £25 John Lewis voucher and a CO2 alarm, and her son won a colouring competition in which he won a £5 credit for his savings account and a chocolate hamper – yummy! The double act of Joan and her husband continued their winning ways this month, telling us all about their prize wins including CDs, books, chocolate covered peanuts and a luxury hamper – very nice! Mapleacorn’s year ended in a winning way too by bagging prizes such as a fabulous tandem paraglide, an Amazon Dot and a back, neck & shoulder massage – a very relaxing end to the year! Woodsyhere had a great winning email from Jazz FM to say they had won a short stay to see Motown The Musical, and Judefire66uk won the perfect birthday present of a brand new Slumberland mattress in a Facebook comp – super well done! Kslade had some lovely wins during December including a Fitbit Charge, a £30 Smiggle voucher, a £20 Marks & Spencer voucher and a Molton Brown gift set – a brilliant end to the year!
I think my favourite members’ win that I read about this last month must be the amazing trip that TraceyJWhite told us about! After being sick with the flu Tracey decided to make the most of her time off by entering some competitions on The PrizeFinder, and she was stunned to find that she had won a fantastic prize from Top Shop online! She and her husband flew out to New York for a luxury four-day trip including a limo transfer, the full Kylie Makeup Collection, a horse drawn carriage ride, a Broadway Show and a $500 gift card to spend at TopShop on 5th Avenue! What a brilliant way to end the comping year – well done Tracey!
So, what’s on your Comping Wish List for this coming year? Do let us know and let us know how you get on with your January comping too; we love to read your winners’ stories! 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!
I won a bath time bundle with Zimpli Kids on Twitter. My son is looking forward to playing in a bath full of goo!
Most of my wins come from FB however it was nice to start the new year off with a WEM saying that I’d won a feather and down claiming candle. May this be the first of many wins for me and everyone else this year!
In January I won a family break in Sherwood Forest with high tea and tickets to an animal park thrown. Very happy!
A good start to the new year! I won a Delamere Dairy hamper full of goats goodies, including not only cheeses but a bottle of wine and a cuddly toy. Something for all the family!
Also have a baby photoshoot with free print and a Shnuggle Dreami cot which my new baby can enjoy!
My son won a set of HogWars Battle Drones. Luckily he was not home when they arrived so they have been wrapped up and will be one of his birthday presents next week! :)
Great week this week as I've won three prizes, two were from Christmas comps. I have won a lovely hamper for my cats from a Waitrose Christmas comp which is packed full of goodies. I've just won my first Instagram prize of a kettle and toaster from Euronics which I'm collecting next week. Then yesterday I had a phonecall from Heart to say that I'd won a Sonos soundbar in their Christmas countdown draw which my hubby is chuffed about!
Best January ever!
£50 to spend at Button and wild
£40 of hair care products
A Ruby Heart crystal ring
£10 Amazon voucher
I had a pretty good January compared to previous years - managed to win myself a £160 pair of boots and the husband won a nice Sony DVD player. A few other bits and pieces made 9 wins in total - not bad at all for the quietest comping month of the year :o)
