Hello everyone! How was your weekend, any nice wins to report? Managed to win a nice case of wine infusions from a txt competition last week, hubby bagged himself a Christmas jumper on the Budweiser app and a lovely set of Michael Morpurgo books turned up as a surprise win – not sure where they came from! Our Christmas trees and decorations went up this weekend, including turning our daughters’ bedroom into a winter wonderland with woodland scene setters, a stick on fire place and fairy lights – looks pretty magical! So, here we are 1st of December, Advents have arrived! Are you getting stuck in already? I have already been ploughing through some this weekend, trying to find out which ones I am interested in and which ones I can safely “ignore” as something I don’t want to waste time on. Of course there are still tons of “regular” competitions for those of you who don’t bother with the advents, so don’t worry you won’t be missing out!
Looking back over November, and considering it was a really busy working month for me, it wasn’t too bad prize-wise. I managed to win 16 prizes, with the help of hubby winning 2! Here is a little run-down of some of my wins:
- 2 x Heat & Hug Koalas, from the Cushelle on-pack promotion
- A set of Sylvanian Families, from an Instagram Regram comp
- A selection of Child’s Farm hair products, from the “Perfect Ponytail” Facebook photo comp
- A bottle of wine, in a Like & Share Facebook comp
- 2 x Christmas jumpers, from the Budweiser on-pack promotion
- Some car cleaning products, from Ideal World on Twitter
- A toiletry bag, from the Air France instant win
- A case of Arniston Bay wine, from their Infusions text comp
- A surprise set of Michael Morpurgo books, not sure where from!
My favourite win has to the Liz Early Ultimate Christmas Hamper I won though through their Facebook tie breaker comp! This was worth an amazing £200 and really is a very special win! My favourite runner’s up prizes have to be more choccies bars from the Cadbury Win a Banger instant win – am building up a nice stash of chocolates with this comp!
Let’s see what some of our lovely members have been winning this month too:
