I entered competitions everyday for a month. What did I win?

I’ve always been interested in entering competitions, even as a child I’d try my luck entering competitions to win toys in magazines like ‘Mizz’ and ‘Top Of The Pops’. Although, rarely successful, I did once win a High School Musical bundle which excited me greatly as a 12 year old with a Zac Efron obsession. Last month, I stumbled across an article about a lady who had given up work to become a full time comper, someone who enters competitions regularly as a hobby. In this article the woman explained how she’d won £30,000 worth of prizes by spending just two hours a week entering competitions online whilst watching TV. Obviously, I had to give this a go!

The following day I began my mission. Initially, I used websites such as Loquax and The Prize Finder to scour the web for big ticket prizes such as cars, holidays and gadgets. This became tedious pretty quickly as it was a lot of effort with no immediate return. So, I did some further research. I quickly learnt that I was looking in all the wrong places and the real opportunities could be found on social media sites. I spent the next few days entering competitions on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and lo and behold… The prizes came rolling in! Please see the list of prizes below with pictures.

In 30 days I managed to win over £350 worth of prizes, not bad for a beginner. The whole process has been a lot of fun and I will continue to enter competitions daily! I would encourage everyone to have a go because as they say, you have to be in it to win it and it really doesn’t take much effort! I will be updating my blog each month with a new post showing you what I’ve won, if you’re interested please visit again. Additionally, I thought it would only be fair to host my own competition- please find this under the ‘Competitions’ tab.

Good luck everyone!

  1. How suitable do you think the Hair chalk would be for a young teen who loves changing her looks but has to consider school rules. I am a grandparent who wants to try to point her in the right direction for her to experiment with her look safely.

    I also like entering free competitions and absolutely swear by Magic Freebies for loads of chances to get loads of items ideal for stocking fillers and finding free to enter competitions. Not that I have much luck with competitions but my family have loads of fun with the weird and wonderful gifts I give them every year. Some are just for a laugh but lots are things I know they like and it adds a bit of extra fun to Christmas gifts

    1. Hello Joy, I think it’d be very suitable! It’s wash in/ wash out so you can try lots of different colours which won’t be permanent. It’s great for young girls who aren’t allowed to dye their hair permanent colours due to school rules etc. Hope this helps!

  2. Wow – you did really well. I’ve not done very much on FB as seems a lot of effort for very little sometimes. Good Luck for November!

  3. I’ve just started entering competitions again, a few years ago I entered many every day and won some fab items, particularly toys and games for my son.
