Hello everyone! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? A couple for me including a £5 Love2Shop voucher from a Facebook daily, a t-shirt in the Brakspear daily and a selection of nibbles from Holland & barrett – always handy! So, here we are in May, how did that happen exactly? Did you get through all the April End of Month (EOM) comps – there seemed to be tons this month for some reason! I was actually ahead of the game for a change during April, and managed to get through most of the EOM comps that I wanted to, allowing me to enjoy my comping and not feel pressured by so many competitions closing in a short space of time. April wasn’t too bad a month for wins – 10 prizes for me, albeit most of them were small. The children were at home for the Easter holidays at the start of the month, so quite happy with that. Here is a run-down of what I won:
- A signed copy of “Guess How Much I Love You”, from Netmums
- A pair of Body Shop face masks, from a Comper 2 Comper comp on Facebook
- A little Book of Care, from the Care+ Facebook instant win
- 100 Tesco points, from the Dettol / X Factor comp
- An Aussie shower gel, from the SuperSavvyMe instant win
- A Russell Hobbs mini oven for my girls’ school, from the Anchor Baking Kits for School promotion
- A boater hat and a t-shirt, both from the daily Brakspear Henley Regatta competition
- A £5 Love2Shop Voucher, from the Croggles Facebook daily comp
- A selection of banana themed nibbles, from the Holland & Barrett Facebook comp
As you can see, a lot of my prizes this month seem to have been won from instant wins and daily entry comps. Even when time is short I always try and make sure to do all of the instant win and daily comps, as a bare minimum. I also always do all the holiday and short break competitions from The PrizeFinder website every day, as this is my main competition focus. How about you, do you have competitions you religiously do every day, even when comping time is short?
Let’s take a look at how all our awesome members have got on during April shall we?
Xxme2uxx has been continuing her winning streak during April bagging some MAC lipstick, a notebook, a £50 shopping voucher (from The PrizeFinder!) and a Google Chromecast to name just a few! Sloopy123 had a great start to the month bagging tickets to see Simple Minds from Absolute Radio and a family ticket to see Bugsy Malone – plenty of nights out on the horizon there then! Harlequin56 had a great day out this month too thanks to comping – a trip to Nottingham Forest FC courtesy of Nottingham Building Society, including a signed shirt and a football – sounds like a great experience! Cummings1981 won a bottle of Baileys (all round to yours then – cheers!), and Joan’s hubby had his third win from the Watches2u daily competition – a Paul’s Boutique ladies watch – did he let you have the watch Joan? Lish2013 won her first cash prize this month, £15 from a Take a Break competition, and Joanneminky had a fab couple of wins of a set of metallic pens and a magnum of prosecco – nice! 01zesty01 had a great WEM (Winning Email) this month too – two Merlin passes won from Go Mobile – that’s a lovely win ahead of the summer holidays! BarbaraEllen won a Breville pancake make from a recipe photograph comp, and villagefox had an awesome win of a Whithead’s Design Chair from Period Ideas magazine worth £1,775 – wow I bet that’s one comfy chair!
My pick of the runners up prizes this month are the After Eights people seem to be winning in their daily Facebook comp. The main Daily prize is a fabulous coffee machine, but I think I would actually prefer the chocolates!
My favourite main prize was won this month by cherylai9 who won £1,000 to spend at Woodblock – fantastic prize! She is looking forward to giving her garden a good spruce up and makeover – send us in some pictures when it is done!
Let us all know how you get on with May’s comps by commenting below with your wins. Don’t forget to upload a photo of your wins too for a chance to win a £50 voucher here.

Happy comping everyone, and lots of Lucky dust to you all!
