So, we're a quarter of the way through 2012 already - have you been as successful with the comping as you'd hoped when you made your New Year's resolutions? Some of the prizes you've won have been fabulous! On our March wins post, you reported over £17,000 of prizes, including a couple of unusual ones for SavingJane (a trip to Paris with a private fragrance consultation at Guerlain!) and smartykay (a pair of pants signed by David Beckham!)
I was jealous of Budster's £6000 family holiday to Jordan though - I've always fancied walking in Indiana Jones' footsteps… maybe one day!
I was lucky enough to win one of the prizes on my wish list last week - dinner at the best restaurant in the world (Noma in Copenhagen)! It's when you win a prize like that, you really appreciate what a magical hobby comping is. For those of you yet to win a 'biggie' - don't give up yet, you really never know what's round the corner!
Good luck for April everyone - and don't forget to upload your photos and stories on our Winners' Page to enter our monthly £50 voucher prize draw!

My 1st April win - Easter Egg from FB Wonga Easter Egg Hunt
Great start to the month xxlee, well done, by the way how many comps do you enter daily/weekly? Good luck to all for April, n x
Still no joy for me. I did finally get the job I want, though, which frees up about 10 hours a week to split between comping, housework, coursework and sleeping, instead of writing applications.
Good luck with the new job Jane! Fingers crossed for the prizes too - are you trying some of the skill-based, more unusual comps? They don't get many entries and are lots of fun to enter!

Hi, some of you might recognise me from the old prizefinder forum, but as that's no longer available, I thought this was probably the best place to post my comment. I haven't been on the website or entered any competitions since august last year, as I have been very ill, however I am now on the mend, and so I can't wait to get cracking on some competitions! :-) Good luck to all you fellow compers, lets hope for some big wins this month!
going well this month, years worth of contact lenses, baush and lomb. VIP trip to the 02 and the music experience from the co-op, jump 21 street goodies, expert sailing skills book, tablets for the horse. Happy comping and good luck all
