Best Competition You've Ever Won?!

Ask a Question

Listening to radio x this morning and the competition was to win loads of goodies like a 60 Inch TV, Dyson airwrap hairdryer, brand new mini Cooper! I entered but didn't win and it got me thinking of what success people have had with competitions?!

LouiseGoodchild I enter comps in my spare time. I used to enter loads before my son was born. I still enter them now, but not as many as before. I've saved a lot of money entering comps. I do it because I enjoy it and if I win then it's an added bonus.

I am sure I have probably answered this question on here previously, but as most will have forgotten and lots of newbies, I will tell again.

I won 4 separate trips (in one comp) to concert venues around europe: Switzerland, Milan, Germany and London. Each trip was inclusive of return flights for two, 3 nights in a 4/5 star hotel, concert tickets and Β£500 for each trip. I went to Milan with my granddaughter and it was to see La Boheme at La Scala opera house. The London trip I gave to my son who had just married and went to Geneva with my boss. I didn't manage the German one as my companion let me down last minute......But still got the Β£500!

I have had quite a few nice wins in the past. I once won a beautiful Β£999 necklace from Beaverbrooks. I also won some Frozen gifts from Argos that were delivered to my house by real Reindeers! It was lovely! My nephew and friends children really enjoyed the experience of seeing and feeding real Reindeers.

Thousand pound's from classic fm. Perfect timing. Helped pay for the majority of my holiday that year for a big birthday I was celebrating. I was working a lot of hours trying to pay for it, so it was very handy.

LouiseGoodchild I found it best to enter with the expectation of not winning then when you do it's a lovely surprise and sometimes the win can arrive months after the closing date when you think someone else must have won it already. If you keep entering the law of averages says you must win something eventually. Be lucky. 🐞
