Share Your May Wins

Hello everyone, how is your week going; any nice wins to report?  Well, haven’t we had some unexpectedly nice weather over the last month, and during Easter too, unheard of!  My girls enjoyed their two-week Easter break and despite the eldest having to revise for her mid-term exams and me and the hubby still working we managed to enjoy some of the sunshine and did some fun family activities too including a ride on the South Devon Steam Railway as part of a prize - more of that to follow.

Despite the Easter break and working long hours I still managed to win three nice prizes last month which I am really rather chuffed about.  Let’s take a look:

  • A Devon mini break & tickets, from RIverford Farm Veg Boxes
  • Disney Mary Poppins backpack & umbrella, from Glopipe on Facebook
  • A Laurel & Hardy apron & tea towel, from The Foodie feed on Twitter

My girls both love Mary Poppins so the bag and umbrella will make lovely gifts for them.  My Laurel & Hardy apron and tea towel have already arrived and my husband, who is a huge fan, was over the moon with them.  He says the tea towel is too nice to use though and will just have it on display in the kitchen LOL.

Obviously, my favourite prize last month has to be the Devon prize from Riverford veg boxes.  It included a £500 cottage break voucher, tickets for a milking experience & the South Devon Railway, a £200 restaurant voucher and year of veg boxes!  As we don’t live too far from Devon we are splitting the prizes up and using them over the course of the year.  We have already been down to the railway and had a wonderful day with the children riding the vintage steam train – my idea of bliss!

Enough about me, let’s take a look at what some of our members have been winning during April 2019:

LouiseM has been a busy bee the last few months and wrote to tell us about her wining streak with magazine competitions!  Over the last few months she has managed to win such goodies as £50 of tea products, marzipan testers, wax melts and other treats – well done you, can’t wait to hear what May’s wins will be!  Joan’s hubby was having some more comping success in April as he managed to win two tickets for the Coronation Street tour – first round at the Rovers Return is on you then!  Digger30 had a lovely win last month of a yummy toffee hamper – sounds delicious!  Dandiggler was recommend to us by a friend and thought he would have a go at comping himself - he has already had some success!  He wrote to tell us that in his first week he had already managed to win four tickets to Thornton Hall County Park and a tub of green tea supplements - what a great winning start, keep up the good work!  After a very busy month in April mainly due to the birth of her baby Mapleacorn was back to her winning ways during April and wrote to tell us what she had won.  As well as being chosen as the monthly PrizeFinder winner of a £50 voucher she also won a £50 M&S voucher, a house plaque, tickets to Devon Attractions and an Easter egg – that’s super impressive with a small baby at home, well done!

So, May is the month of bank holidays with the first of which being this coming weekend – do you have any plans with your friends and family for the three-day weekend?  Whatever you get up to make sure you take some time to have a browse on The PrizeFinder to see what great competitions we have for you.  Whatever you are trying to win at the moment - from holidays to cash, toys to furniture – we are sure to have something to tempt you.

Do let us know how you get on with your May 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!

My son has won a bundle of NERF accessories from a children's magazine.

It's our first win in a while after a mini drought! Fingers crossed for a few more wins in May. Good luck everyone!

My husband has won another great prize, unfortunately he has no idea who from as no accompanying letter. The prize is a collection of skin and face care products from Heaven by Deborah Mitchell, there is about £200 worth. He has given them to me so I am delighted to receive them, he normally wont enter prizes for ladies but he thought I would appreciate it if he won.

Yay I've won tickets through Absolute Radio to see the 90s band Sleeper in London next week. Time for me to relive my youth and let my hair down a bit
