Share Your January Wins

Hello again everyone, how is your week going; any nice wins to report?  Well first things first Happy New Year!  It hasn’t quite sunk in yet that we are in a whole new year already!  Icelebrated my 40th birthday on 1st January and the children are only go back to school on Monday so I am rather behind with my comping if I’m honest. How did you get on with the advents and comping during December in general?  December for me was pretty much my best comping month, which is what I would hope to be reporting!  I managed to win nine prizes including four advent prizes – let’s take a look at how it breaks down:

  • Barbie Glam bag, from a blog comp
  • Tenson ski jacket & trousers worth £415, from the Ski Club of Great Britain
  • A rose gold hairbrush, form the Denman advent on Instagram
  • A surprise bundle of Ryvita crackers, from their online comp
  • A Disney Lilo & Stitch bundle, from their Facebook tea party
  • A Pair of Muck adjustable boots worth £115, from Country Living magazine online
  • A Mr Men backpack & pencil case, from the Mr Men advent on Facebook
  • An In The Night Garden book, from their instant win advent
  • A premium grilling stone, from the Weber advent online

So, as you can see I managed to get a good spread of prizes across a good selection iof entry methods during December.  Considering I was working so many hours during December I really am very chuffed with my haul of prizes.  This brings my 2018 total to 46 prizes totalling around £3,300.  I know those numbers are quite small in comparison to what some of our lovely members achieve, but I am quite pleased nonetheless!

Enough about me, let’s take a look at what some of you were winning during December 2018:

Joan was lucky enough to be away on a cruise last month so didn’t have her usual raft of prizes to tell us about, although she did return to a winning announcement from House Beautiful magazine letting her know she had won £250 of Taylor Benfield candles, lovely!  Beccyj told us about some lovely prizes she won during December including Start Rite shoes, wellies & a coat for her little girl, and a year’s adoption of a donkey & a £50 Asda voucher – perfect for Christmas!  Caustin78 didn’t have any advents to tell us about but still managed some great wins during December including a pair of sandals & matching bag, a Christmas Joe Brown cardigan, a Real Live fur pet dog toy and some tasty Naansters – brilliant!  Villagefox had some lovely wins to tell us about too including a family ice skating experience from the Robinsons on pack promotion and a bottle of champagne – cheers!  

I think the title of “Most Prolific Comper” has to go again to Mapleacorn this month for her impressive list of prizes.  She managed to win goodies such as a Forelock & Fringe gift box for herself and her horse, a heated back massager, a facial, a weekend break in Devon, a £100 Next at Home voucher, a £50 voucher for blinds and a reindeer decoration made from horseshoes – those horseshoes are sure to bring you even more luck in 2019!

So, it’s a new year and that means comping resolutions and wish lists - what is on your hit list to try and win during 2019?  We won’t be going on a family holiday this year as it stands, so top of my list is trying to win any kind of break for us from a weekend away to a full family sun holiday.  I am also trying to win as much cash and vouchers as possible to fund next Christmas.  Alongside this are the usual bits for the children including Smiggle stationery, Harry Potter items and anything and I mean ANYTHING Disney - if you see comps for any  of these do feel free to drop me a message at to let me know.

Do let us know how you get on with your January comping; 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 Spider-Man: Into The Spider Verse poster in the Cineworld advent - my son is looking forward to putting it up in his room as we watched the film over the Christmas holiday :)

I only started comping at the start of the year so was thrilled to come home from work and the school run to find my first prize on my doorstep - a fab personal journal from Soul & Spirit! Definitely the right way to start the New Year and it’s inspired me to keep going!

I had a very nice surprise this new year when I had it confirmed that I have won the river cruise from a competition I enter last year.

First win of the year, a gorgeous print for my daughters bedroom. She’s due in 3 weeks! It’s been killing me as we moved house before Christmas and we were 4 weeks without broadband and no signal in the house! Comping ground to a halt but I can happily say I’m back in the band wagon and have some catching up to do!!!
