The Christmas Advent Calendar Competitions Are over - Thank Goodness!

That was a long 24/25 days. I couldn't wait for those to end. It was a real chore towards the end. Anyone win anything?

Didn't win anything this year. I didn't enter as many as I used to. I just entered the ones that I saw.

I had a folder all set up for them. Entered every day. Apart from that something and nothing piece of A4 to colour in from in the night garden, I won nothing. A lot of time every morning doing it. Not sure if I will next year. I did in 2017, had 2018 off from them so I might leave them in 2020.

ShellyAnn I used to win loads in the advent comps, but not had anything for the last 3 years.

I didn’t win a bean this year despite spending several hours a day entering them all 😔

At present I’d say that I won’t do them next Christmas, but I know in reality I will get sucked in as I am such an optimist!

I had it down to about 1hr 15mins. I was really really quick. But it still was the first thing I did every morning as soon as I woke up, I grabbed the laptop and started when still in bed. So glad not to have to do it now 😌

I haven't won anything and this year is my first time trying. The walkers one is still active for a few more days but I doubt I'll win anything on there

I am still trying with walkers but I haven't won anything yet on any of their comps. They do these quick often, not just for Christmas. Still I started shaking the filipo berio tree back in 2017 and every time they bought it back out and finally I did get a receipe book. I won't be giving up with Walkers either. 🤣

I was thrilled to delete the links from the folder set up under bookmarks. A weight was lifted from my shoulders 🤣

Yes I did, an In the night garden colour in picture, which I could have printed myself, waste of postage and all they were doing were promoting stage show.

That's what I got too. I didn't even class that as a prize! Like you say, we could of all printed those off ourselves. Very disappointing.

I took part nearly everyday well tried to as much as I can. A nice notebook arroved from a Brioche company, about a week ago, didn't know I'd won, so hoping something else might just turn up

As far as I know I won nothing from Brioche. I tried with them as well. Well done on getting something. Looks like we didn't do well collectively here at latest deals on the advents. 🤣 🤣

ShellyAnn thanks. There didn't seem to be as many companies doing it, and some of the prizes I wasn't keen on so didn't enter

KirstyW I felt the prizes ranged from brilliant to rubbish. Some days it was almost 'here's a used tissue we found on the office floor' type of prizes 🤣 there was no consistency. 😂 I did want a McDonalds jumper though - more than I want to eat their food 😀

ShellyAnn that's hilarious. It did feel that way and some wanted you to enter in so many ways such as sign in using Fb, and Insta, tag 3 friends, follow the page and share, I couldnt be bothered

I am a sucker for the advents - and this year I was a bit more organised so was able to enter quite a few more than I usually do. £250 theatre vouchers (not a specifically advent compo though), a Christmas jumper, Berrio cookbook (well more of a leaflet really) and a lot of Belgium chocolate goodies so was more than worth it! Best haul for many years.

I find the number of them overwhelming, so only enter them after I've done the other competitions.

The only advent calendar competition I entered was the jet2 one because who doesn’t want to win a holiday! Gutted I didn’t win obviously but wasn’t expecting it either. well done to those who did 👍🏻

I've just read on facebook that after tomorrow some of might get notifications of wins as some advents don't close until after 31st dec. Here's hoping some of do win something after all.
