Boost Your Winning Chances with Compers Update

Hello everyone!  How is your week going, any nice wins to report?  Another few nice wins this week including a Lady Bug night light won from a blog comp and two surprise wins as well of a Wild Pets spider and a kids’ keep calm colouring book, both from online entry competitions.  The spider will make a great Christmas or birthday gift for my nephew and I am going to let my eldest have the colouring book on Friday as she is going into hospital for her tonsillectomy.  I love getting surprise wins in the post, especially when they can be used for Christmas and birthday gifts. 

I am feeling rather well organised for Christmas so far this year and have managed to stash away a few gifts both for my own children as well as my niece and nephew.  The amount of competitions that are available online at the moment seem to have increased sharply over the last month.  I think a lot of people start to ramp up their comping efforts now on the run up to Christmas – I know I certainly do! 

For some people it is all about playing the numbers – the more comps you enter the better the chances of you winning something.  But the other school of thought is that it is better to take more time and effort in entering competitions that are a little different or are lower entry, to increase the probability of your winning a prize.  A lot of people still ignore the humble postal competition which has been the mainstay of us compers for decades. 

I often hear people complain that there aren’t as many postal competitions to enter these days with the rise of online competitions and social media promotions.  However I don’t think I have ever struggled to find postal competitions, and if you are a Compers News member you will probably feel the same!  Every month we offer our members a plethora of fabulous postal competitions that you can enter simply and easily and that are often lower entry too. 

However if you are looking to increase the number of postal competitions you do even further, then we have a fantastic offer for you!  Why not boost your chances of winning by subscribing to our sister publication Compers Update!  Every month Compers News receives word of competitions and promotions that are just too short-life to be included in the monthly magazine: so what happens to those competitions?  Well that’s where Compers Update comes into its own - a newsletter and online portal to tons of postal entry competitions with a short-life and usually fewer entries.  Here is a run-down of what the subscription offers:
