Are You Entering More Competitions because of Lockdown?

Ask a Question

Hi all,

Just wandering if you think you're entering more competitions now than before due to lockdown? I definitely am! I have so much more time!

Yes same as you said, I've got more free time so find I can spend more time entering competitions as well as doing survey sites

I think I'm entering about the same amount.

But whereas before I was maybe a day or two behind, now I'm right up to date with them.

Pjran I also only enter those that I would use. I think it would be unfair to enter otherwise. No point entering for dog treats when I have no dog!

mhancomps unfortunately whether I enter for myself or family I’ve not been lucky yet but it does while away the time.

I've never signed up for competitions. Where do you find these competitions. I know there's some shared on here but are they shared anywhere else. I feel like I won't win (as I never win anything) so don't sign up

SalmaS if you don’t enter you don’t win. I only go through this site and although I’ve entered hundreds I’ve only won one. But it is worth it because I love thinking about all the things I could win

I have been entering about the same as normal. I have the same amount of time as before lockdown so I do my normal activities and then enter comps and do surveys when I have the time.

I would,but now I've got more time,there seem to be way fewer comps,or at least decent ones,to enter.

mhancomps The magazine comps for one, but there also seem to be less competitions generally right now.Which is understandable I guess,with companies/people being unable to go to work.

If anything, I have been entering less lately. Due to having a long dry spell I currently do not feel motivated enough to continue entering around 100 a day like I usually do. It's winning a competition that gives me encouragement to continue.

But come July I will start entering 100 a day again.

RegularComper90 how many were you winning before? Out of curiosity?

mhancomps I would say on average around 1 or 2 small to medium prizes per month when I was at my best. Sometimes more if I was extra lucky.

I enter around a 100 competitions a week,I can't wrap my head around entering a 100 a day,mostly because a lot of the prizes aren't that appealing/useful.I've only been entering comps since Feb 2020 and I've won 3 prizes so far,which is ok I guess.

I think I range from very few to a LOT! It depends how busy I am at work, I use this as downtime when I need a 5 minute break!

3 since Feb seems a lot to me! I've been entering 2 years and only won 1!
