I received a lovely email recently from the Copenhagen Candle company saying I had won a competition they had held on UKmums.tv website. The prize was £100 worth of candles and the email was to see what scents I prefered so they could make sure I got products I would like! I thought that was such a thoughtful thing to do as I am quite fussy with smells! I emailed back with the types of scents I liked and received my prize a few days later. All the candles are lovely and I will definitely use the company in the future! Thank you Prizefinder as the competition was listed on here!

A couple of wins this month
Sunday, June 25, 2023
A couple of wins this month so far! It’s been a slow year for comping so I nearly gave up! However I love comping so I’ve been trudging through the months hoping for a surprise win! I firstly won a family pass to a Legoland discovery centre which my son cannot wait to visit! The second win was this rather unique book Tejai and Mejai by Fenyo, a lovely book full of short stories similar to Aesop’s fables which is also beautifully illustrated . And finally a £25 goldsmith voucher which I used towards a Disney traditions ornament. Good luck to everyone for July!
£10 Costa Voucher

I won a £10 Costa voucher from Everyone’s Travel. Looking forward to treating myself to a nice coffee and cake with a friend. ☕️ 🧁 trying to decide between the cinnamon bun or lemon drizzle cake.
Italian Cookery School Win
Monday, June 5, 2023
Many years ago I entered a Birra Moretti competition to win a stay at an Italian Cookery School, and I won!! This was yet another of my wins when doing tiebreaker competitions and I only wish there were more of these just like there used to be. After an uneventful flight we arrived at the airport and were soon whisked away to a beautiful Villa in the mountains called The Toscana Saporita Cooking School and were shown to our huge bedroom. Furnished in true Italian style the bed must have been at least 7 feet wide and antique. There were just ten of us and the itgers eight were all Americans The days started with a lovely breakfast followed by cookery lessons until lunchtime. Whatever we made in the morning was served up for our lunch and it was always delicious. After lunch we were taken out for the afternoon to various places that tourists don’t normally get to visit, such as the factory that made floats for carnivals, a studio where marble statues were carved and amongst other places there was the obligatory visit to Pisa! We arrived back in time to shower and change in time for dinner which was always a sumptuous affair with such tasty Italian dishes, cooked by the Chefs, and beautiful Italian wines served to match whatever we were eating. On one evening we ate pizza cooked in the outside pizza oven and on another we were joined by one of the bosses from Birra Moretti and we had a wonderful time. All too soon it was time to return home but we learned so much during the week that we were able to take with us to use in our recipes back home. It was one of the most memorable prizes I have ever won and just one of the prizes that I’ll never forget. The photograph shows my husband, hands on, making pasta together with the recipe book given to us on leaving. Thank you for a wonderful week, Birra Moretti, we still love your beer!
Nominated my mum to win a drinks bundle :)
Monday, June 5, 2023
A lovely prize bundle of non-alcoholic spirits by Everleaf with Fever Tree, which you could nominate a winner for.
I nominated my mum as a well done on completing some health goals she had set. It was the perfect pick-me-up treat for her!
It was quite generous with two big bottles and then mixers. So we actually used it as an excuse to get together to celebrate my mum whilst all trying out her prize in the sunshine as a family. It was a great way to try a new drink, which as it turns out is very delicious!
When a prize does not arrive after two months!
Thursday, June 1, 2023
I was chosen by Toshiba Lifestyle as the winner of a microwave in their March draw on Facebook. I dm'd my details and was told it would be "shipped" the next week. After 28 days I began messaging, tagging on the original winning post but no one answered. I emailed the London office and even wrote a proper letter to them but had no reply. When it got to 2 months I contacted the ASA online. The next morning I had a message saying it would arrive the next day! I suspect the social media is done by someone overseas as the messages came at 3am! The winner on Insta contacted me and we both complained to the ASA .I would not hesitate to use them again. I contacted David Smith to thank him and close the case. I will not wait so long next time!
This was a tag a friend comp and I was the lucky friend!
Thursday, June 1, 2023
I usually enter the closing competitions first, we all have our favourite methods. Sometimes I work my way through the "prizes" if I want to win something specific though I seem to win random things rather than things I need!
I won this lovely bundle of patio cleaners, weedkillers and slug pellets by default really. A comping friend won and she had tagged me on Facebook so I won one too! I did have to badger the sponsor as it took a while to arrive ! I always add a pic when an item arrives and tag the sponsor too!
Coronation Street Party at Coronation Street!
Wednesday, May 31, 2023
I want to say a huge thank you to Prize Finder for posting details of the most amazing competition that I won at the beginning of May. It was an ITV competition to win Golden Tickets to their King’s Coronation street party on This Morning live from the Coronation Street set in Manchester. Entry to the competition was by submitting a 60 second video nominating someone for the tickets, so I nominated my partner as he used to serve in the Navy on the Royal Yacht and had a photo of himself meeting Prince Charles. The ITV producers phoned up to say we had won a pair of tickets, and so we attended the Live Show of This Morning, and were sat just behind the famous sofa at the head of the table, and also joined in with the segment from the Rovers Return! We met all the stars of the Friday show - Dermot, Alison and Gyles were my favourites - and it was an unforgettable day. So interesting to see the programme being filmed live too! One of those money-can’t-buy prizes that are so special!
Cetuem SCR gold illuminating skin cleanser and SCR Gold golden glow gel
Tuesday, May 30, 2023
I entered a competition at Cosmopolitan Competitions via The Prizefinder and was lucky enough to win some great beauty products - Cetuem SCR gold illuminating skin cleanser and SCR Gold golden glow gel. I’ve been using them for about 5 weeks now and love the results. I officially won back in Feb and nearly missed out on receiving them due to messages going into spam so thankfully I found the message I needed to reply to just in time!

This lovely blue Hydrangea was bought with A Patch plants voucher which I won from Inch cider. I always find if you have to go to the trouble of buying a product there are usually less entries, meaning more chance of a win .This competition had a very generous prize pot too.
An added bonus was the cider was very tasty, we will be definitely buying the cider again.
Now going through the listings on Prize finder to try to find some children's toys to win for the summer holidays.
Keep up the good work finding us competitions to enter.
