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!

Maybelline mascara & eyeliner - Facebook video comp
£20 Nottingham Contemporary voucher - local magazine comp

Oh, that's WONDERFUL news - I watched your entry after you posted it on our March wins thread and I'm delighted you won. Don't forget to upload a photo from the trip to our Winners Page, we'd love to hear all about it. South Africa is on my prize wish list! :)

Just got an email today to say my 13 Year old son has won the grand prize of his perfect day up to the value of £5,000. Amazing! He is super excited. The competition was so long ago though he can't remember what he said - the closing date was in September, so not sure why there was such a delay.
I remember this one! I can't believe it's taken them so long to let you know about the win. I wonder what your son said - how exciting!!!
Capri-sun called me today to confirm the arrangements for my son's perfect day: he gets a £500 shopping spree in 'Game', lunch for him and 9 friends at Planet Hollywood and he's taking me and his gran to see Shrek the musical in a box with Champagne for us and Capri-Sun for him! He also gets a limousine for the whole day and a morning in a games arcade with his friends. What a fabulous prize! We can't wait to enjoy it.
Oh wow, that's an amazing prize - make sure you take lots of photos!!!
Wow that's an amazing prize! I hope you all enjoy! I bet your son is ecstatic!
