Hello again compers! How is your week going, any nice wins to report? Can you believe we are in July already, how crazy is that! We are already half way through the year and I don’t feel like I have had chance to sit down! Still, summer holiday are almost upon us again, and my youngest will have finished her first year at primary school – scary thought! Comping always has to take a bit of a backseat during the summer months, but it is so worth it in order that we can have some great family time together and build some memories for the children to cherish. As much as the girls and my husband love me winning things for us as a family, I think they would rather actually have ME than the prizes – at least I hope they would haha.
June was a very slow burning month for me, but I did manage to win seven prizes overall in the end. My favourite was a Playmobil set that my daughter won from an online game, and she and her sister had great fun together building it after school and playing with it in their bedroom. Hubby is rather looking forward to the case of Carling Cider I won turning up to – food and drink prizes always go down well in our house!
I can see from the Chatterbox forum that our members have been continuing on their lucky streak during June – let’s have a look at some of the best prizes people have been winning:
- £140 Ticketmaster vouchers, from the Yorkie on-pack promotion
- More members won gadgets and kitchen goodies, from the Onken promotion
- £1,000 voucher to spend on bikes and accessories at Halfords, from Johnson & Johnson
- A luxury holiday to Cancun, from Kankun sauces
- A one night city break including travel money & shopping vouchers, from the Alpen challenge
- £100 cheque from a Puzzler mag competition
- A Roberts DAB radio, from Absolute Radio
- A VIP Wimbledon experience with hospitality and Centre Court tickets, from the Stella Artois text comp
- A Sony Bravia TV and DVD player, from Girl Talk Magazine
- £1,000 worth of Lancome Creams, from Hello Magazine
- A fabulous family trip to Orlando with the M&Ms on-pack comp – a massive coup wining this one, well done!!
My outright favourite win this month though has to go to our member who won a luxury holiday to the Caribbean worth £2,000 courtesy of 99p Stores! This competition was a phone in comp with thousands of entries, and will be paid as holiday vouchers – bonus! The lucky member will be able to use this fabulous prize for a UK break, a summer holiday during 2016 and even as part payment towards a 2017 holiday – comping really is the hobby that keeps on giving!
One smaller prize I still see people winning that I haven’t managed to bag yet is the Juiceburst Blippar comp. If you don’t know Blippar is an app you download to your phone, point it at a specific promotional product and the app launches a game or similar to enter you into a competition. For the Juice burst one it is a simple spin the reels type game where you have five attempts to win a prize – in this instance a case of Juiceburst. I would love to win on this, especially with summer coming up, so well done to everyone who has won so far and blow a little lucky dust this way if you have any spare!
Here’s hoping for more lovely wins this month, and keep telling us all about them on the Chatterbox Forum - I for one love to read all about your fabulous wins!
Happy comping and lots of Lucky Dust to you all!
