Hello again everyone, how is your week going; any nice wins to report? So, own up, who has spent the year up: how can it be July already! I feel as if the year is going way to quickly now, and I haven’t accomplished hardly any of my comping goals! It is coming up to the busiest period of the school year here, full of end of year assemblies, sports days and summer fairs. And then of course the children will be off on their six-week break at the end of month, and the juggling act really starts!
With being so busy at work, as well as planning for our upcoming holiday to Corfu, I haven’t comped as much as I should have this month. This has meant I have only won two prizes during June – a White Co candle & reed diffuser set worth about £65 from a Facebook live comp, and a surprise win of a Fab Labs glitter tattoo & nails set for my youngest from a children’s magazine.
So, as you can see, my tally is rather unimpressive this month, but I am hoping that things will pick bac up after our holiday. Realistically though, things may not get back into a winning routine until the children are back to school after the summer break – feels like a long way off yet!
Let’s see what some of our lovely members have been winning during June 2018:
Joan and her husband continued their winning ways this month bagging both a case of cocktails from Divine Chocolates and a Downsize DVD from HeyUGuys – well done guys! Mapleacorn had a lovely win this month of a trip to London for a secret cinema experience. Unfortunately they were unavailable for the date, so was able to gift the experience to a colleague – I love when other people can benefit from our hobby too! Villagefox had a nice blog comp win of a pair of Heelys for her son – very nice! Kslade told us about two nic e wins for her this month too – an iPad Mini from The National Lottery & Bauer Media, as well as a £50 Amazon voucher from the Boost daily comp. Her son had some success this month too, winning an overnight stay at Blackpool Dungeons – what a great, unque experience, well done!
I think the title of “Most Prolific Winner of Tickets” must go to Lukesmummy. Over the course of June, she managed to win herself tickets to the Vintage Cycling Revival at Herne Hill from Jazz FM, as well as a pair of tickets to see Taylor Swift from List magazine. Her most impressive ticket-related prize though must be from Foodism magazine – a pair of tickets to Black Deer festival, along with a one-to-one cooking lesson, a signed cookbook & a Weber BBQ! What a lovely haul, well done!
Do let us know how you get on with your July comping; we love to read your winners’ stories! 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!
Have just found out I've won a holiday to North Devon. So excited as this is my first month of comping and my first win!
I received an email yesterday informing me that I had won a competition to have a professional chef come to my house and cook a three course meal for up to six people. I am so chuffed as I'll get a night off from cooking the evening meal. The chef brings a waiter with him and they literally do everything from set up to clearing away. I've just got to decide who to invite!
I took a break from comping in June but I'm back for July and my son is pleased with the first win of the month - a Pokémon bundle from a children's magazine :)
Won my first prize this month, It's a Noughty Natural Haircare Goody Bag from a Yours Magazine competition.
I've won a family pass to Paultons Park, my little girl is super excited as she'e always wanted to go to Peppa Pig World. A fantastic win just in time for the school holidays!
I won a saddle cloth for my horse this week. Lucky I checked back on the Facebook page because they announced it and didn’t tag me, I only saw 4 days later. Just goes to show, always look back and check.
Another win for my horse, a fleece show rug. However another one where thy announced but didn’t tag! They announced the winner on Monday and I only saw it last night! Can’t stress the importance of going back and checking Facebook competitions!
Guess what?! I've won more tickets lol - this time for LoveBN1 festival which is part of Brighton Pride in August. Looking forward to seeing Chic and Jess Glynn Excited!!!
Had a month of 'small but very welcome' prizes. Won twice with walkers and now have 2 x sharing bowl with glasses. Managed a pair of Crabbies sunglasses, Irn Bru flip-flops - and what my grandchildren loved the best - FIFA Ultimate Team shirts for their X-box games. Fingers crossed for next month although it's these small prizes that keep us going. xx
