Hello everyone! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? Here we are, one month through 2016 already, can you believe it? Christmas seems like it was a lifetime ago already, as January has run way with me in a blur of sorting through junk, planning for my youngest daughter’s 6th birthday and getting back into school clubs and commitments. I really haven’t had much comping mojo the last month if I am honest, but that being said I still managed to win six lovely prizes over the course of the month:
- A surprise six month subscription to Little Passports, from Primary Times
- Some free cheese, form Wyke Farms on Twitter
- A case of 9Bars, from their Facebook nomination comp
- A Peanuts Movie goodie bag, from Tesco Opticians on Facebook
- A Teletubbies phone, from a Twitter Party
- A New South Wales hamper, from a photo competition with Expedia on Twitter
Of the pries I managed to win last month the Little Passports subscription is probably my favourite. The fun programme sends your child activities and interesting souvenirs form a particular country each month, promoting geographical learning as well as some great online games. It is something I have looked at in the past but never been able to justify the cost, so this was a really lovely surprise win to have come through the door – I am sure my girls will love it!
Let’s have a look now at what everyone else has been winning during one of the driest months of the comping year:
Joan had a slow start to the winning bagging herself a DVD and cinema poster from Absolute Radio, but picked up later in the month winning another DVD from Saga on facebook – perfect prizes for the rubbish winter weather! Rudders had a warming start to the year by winning a Vimto cuddle set from their daily competition, and BarbaraEllen had a great first month of the year by winning some posh shampoo from House & Garden as well as a mug and some soup from the instant win comp from Tesco. Kslade won a surprise gift in the Snoopy daily instant win as well as a £25 voucher for Hilton in their instant win Facebook game, and kieranawjw won the second day of the Delicious Advent competition, which was a top of the range food processor worth £199! EmlaPrice only started comping at the end of last year and has already had a great win of two tickets to Thriller Live from Delia Online – what a great start to a fun new hobby! JoanneMinky reported some fab prizes for January including a book from Cheshire Life magazine, a craft kit from Sew Magazine and a case of 9Bars from their advent competition. Goatinaboat had a fabulous sounding January by bagging such lovely wins as a bottle of wine, a reindeer bath towel, a Slim-fast seven day trial, a thermometer and a Teletubbies toy! VillageFox managed to cheer themselves up during a cold start to the year by winning a bundle of novels, a latter cake, a Kiekis set and a MAM breastfeeding and sterilising set – what a fab haul! Dig76 had a prize win this month that I would really like to have won; a weekend in London including hotel accommodation, transport and all food and drink – a prize worth about £1,000, what a super way to start the year!
Seems like lots of people have been winning on the instant win comp from Tesco & Cross & Blackwell this month. You get five chances every day to try and win yourselves a nice microwaveable soup mug and a tin of soup – but I still cannot get a win on this! If you haven’t tried it yet pop over to their page here and try your luck – the comp runs until 1st March 2016 so let us know how you get on!
I think the fastest prize delivery last month has to go to Argos for the fabulous prize Goatinaboat won from them in their Twitter comp. When asked what they needed to enjoy the big year of sport they asked for a bike! This turned out to be the winning entry and Argos promptly delivered a shiny new bike the very same day – now that’s good promoter customer service!
Let us all know how you get on with February’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.
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!

I received an email notification on 26th December from Good Housekeeping competition regarding a prize that I won : festive hamper.
It's February and I still didn't received the prize.
Good Housekeeping claims it's sponsor's responsibility exclusively, so I've contacted the sponsor but I didn't received any answer.
They should choose the sponsors more carefully and assume the responsibility as long they notify the winners and the prizes are on their website.
I am very disappointed and I will never apply to a contest on their website.
Had a good week, won some expensive shampoo, a box of deluxe tea and today a Thorntons hamper. Happy days.
After nothing so far this month... had a WEM telling me that I've won a PS Vita (YES!!!) from a competition ran by the Daily Express back in December.
Won £250 worth of wine in a Christmas competition! Have won nothing since September so this is great.
