Competition Wins 2016

I have been entering competitions on and off since the 1980`s and I have won some amazing prizes during that time.

Here is a link to my Pinterest Board which shows some of my wins 

https://uk.pinterest.com/chrismse1/my-winning-hobby



My best win this year has been a £300 Disney Store Gift Card which I won from a Mumsnet Survey.  All spent on these two little darlings and being a canny granny we went to the store when everything had 20 per cent off.


Isabella and Alice

  Another lovely prize this year was a weekend camping at England Medieval Festival worth £250 and won via a blog competition.

My neice Chris and her family enjoyed the camping trip win
Rugby tickets, Theme park tickets, a £75 Marks gift card and a few gift cards from twitter parties. Not bad considering I have hardly been comping at all this year. We sadly lost my daughter Katrina to mouth cancer in August 2015 she loved coming on my prize wins with me. I took a year off comping and most other things after that.


Henley Regatta Festival win Katrina and me



My best places for finding competitions are Theprizefinder.com and Di Cokes amazing site superlucky.co.uk

Moneysavingexpert.com is good to but I prefer the comps in date order. I find theprizefinder easier to use. 

I also like Cora Harrison for pure comping determination see her 2 people, five hours, 1000 comps entered here.
