I recently started entering competitions a month or so ago and its become a bit of a hobby no, so I was very pleased to find out that I had just won for the very first time! It's a very small runners up prize of £1. Although its monetary value is tiny, I was so excited for the fact that I'd won my first prize. It has made me want to enter even more competitions going forward and hopefully I'll start to win bigger and bigger. £1 is definitely an easy first win to remember though and its boosted my determination 😁

Hallelujah for the ADVENT Comps!!
Thursday, January 9, 2020
I love entering the yearly Advent comps on the fabulous Prizefinder, but never had any success with them over the years, until I received an email last week!
I had entered the "FREEVIEW" comps daily, crossing my fingers each time I submitted my entry!!
I am now the proud owner of a 49" Panasonic television, courtesy of John Lewis (whom fulfilled the prize), and the news is still sinking in!
The communication from the Marketing team AND John Lewis regarding delivery was outstanding, highly recommended! I look forward to watching this years Euro's on the new TV!!
A wonderful prize to welcome the New Year! Thank you Prizefinder, you all do a fantastic job!

This is my fabulous Gordon Ramsay Royal Doulton Dinner Set that I won recently with Sterling Furniture and their Day 1 Advent Competition. The quality and style of the dinner set is truly amazing. It arrived in perfect timing for our Christmas Dinner and I have to say it truly felt like fine dining at it's best. on the day This was my first advent competition of the year but an extremely practical one that I love and will use on a day to day basis with a daily reminder of my amazing win. Thank you Sterling Furniture.

I won this prize from Yardleys Advent competition (sorry I no longer have the box it came in which would have made a better picture). Entered every day as is my mission over the run up to Christmas when I am glued to the computer entering like a crazy woman and perseverance paid off in the end and I received this lovely prize of a Radley tote bag, the weeniest hot water bottle in the world and some gorgeous Yardley toiletries. Could hardly believe it when the postman arrived with two enormous boxes which I presumed were yet more plants for the garden that my husband had ordered but they turned out to be addressed to me. Was delighted as it is so much harder to win anything in the Advent comps as more and more people enter than when I first started doing them. See that I have been a member of The Prizefinder for 18 years so it might even have been that long. Thank you for helping me become a winner.

We saw earlier in the year that Best Western was running a chilren's competition, with quite a few different prizes! Your child had to design their own hotel and you then had to submt the photo on social media to enter. Melody made hers out of a shoe box and other recycling materials, as well as bits of Lego to add a bit of extra detail. We were so excited to hear that Melody ahd won a prize! Our prize was 2 nights in one of their hotels with breakfast, and a family ticket to Chester Zoo! We just came back, it was a prefect Twixmas treat! The staff even bought the children a box of chocolates each and they didn't charge us for the meal we had in their restaurant either! It was such a great time! The zoo was a lot of fun and we saw loads of animals, the weather seemed perfect for many of them. We loved the giraffes and the elephants, also the birds and butterflies! We would definitely visit again!

I won a night in Edinburgh before Christmas. I had never been there and had a magical time. We stayed in the hotel indigo and they really looked after us. We had balloons in our room, chocolates and strawberries and breakfast thrown in. This truly was an amazing prize. We went to the castle and explored the markets. The Christmas markets are the best I have ever been to much better than the crowds in Manchester which is where we usually venture. Edinburgh is a stunning city. I can’t wait to see what 2020 brings and where my hobby will take me .

Over Christmas there were SO many Advent calendars it was impossible to keep up! Luckily Prizefinder was amazing at getting them all listed and easy to enter. I was lucky to win one, a pair of gorgeous cotton pyjamas from an Instagram comp. My first ever Instagram win! It was from a small company so there weren't too many entries (hundreds rather than thousands and thousands) and I got this amazing pair of PJS just before Christmas. Thank you Prizefinder and here's to a great 2020 of more competitions !

I searched on Prizefinder for competitions offering a washing machine as a prize and found one on House Beautiful magazine. Whilst entering that one daily, I noticed another competition for a Julian Joseph gorgeous velvet chair. I tried almost every day and was amazed to receive a congratulatory email from the magazine and soon after a phone call from the lovely people at Julian Joseph. They arranged for a speedy delivery and the chair arrived in time for christmas. To say i was delighted was an understatement. So thank you the lovely people at House Beautiful and Julian Joseph and the Prizefinder! Happy New Year everyone

After a really dry run lasting several months I was beginning to wonder is I'd ever win again when I received an email to say I'd won a £200 Tesco voucher from a competition run in conjunction with various childrens' magazines. The publisher's contact was super efficient and the card arrived in time for Christmas shopping. To wander round without even thinking about the cost was a Christmas present in itself.
The Advents then provided me with a £50 voucher for a Michelin restaurant fortunately valid for all of 2020.
A good end to the year. Wishing everyone a successful, healthy and happy 2020
3D printer excitememt
Friday, December 27, 2019
I have wanted a 3D printer for years but have never had the spare cash to buy one. I am fascinated with them and was so excited to find a competition to win a 3D printer from How it Works magazine. I never dreamt I would actually win. My sister and I started a small Etsy shop in the summer and this will be perfect to add more of a range to our shop. It’s been Just over a year since I started comping and what a year it’s been! I can’t wait to start testing out the 3d printer during the Christmas to New Year limbo!! This comping hobby is amazing! Good luck in 2020 everyone
