People who have ever won any competitions???

I'm a noob so please be gentle - have some cynicism that any competition giving away nice stuff for nothing (other than perhaps the right to bombard you with emails and phone calls gained due to one's lack of box-checking/unchecking accident) is actually real and wondered if there are any posts on here from any one who's ever won one of these compos... I just wanna hear about someone real that has and thus feel like it all isn't one big fake, fixed spam scam... thanks.

Couldn't find any threads on this but that could just be my noobness in which case, please direct me to some, ta.

I have never been in the "competitions" forum, but I would have a look there.
I doubt it would exist if no one ever won.

Someone won my competition.

My dad won a copy of windows 7 a while ago, it wasn't the main winner though.

Competitions are to get people to the shop to buy things most of the time, but some do it when they have been given something to give away to promote the item.

All competitions are in the Competitions area :thumbsup:

i started comping in august and from about mid october ive had 1-5 items every week coming thru my door. Lots of companies dont tell you, youve won but 6-8 weeks later something turns up and you hmmm musta won it as didnt order it and no invoice ( some dont even send you won letter)

But i enter on average 200 comps a day , probability on my side. And you'd be surprised that ive entered facebook comps where you have to leave a comment. Ive entered at 11.50pm, comp ends at midnight and i might only be the 39th person to comment

I dont actually enter many competitions because I dont have the time, seem to enter loads at once and then none for months!

im SAHM and when LO asleep of i get 5 mins i click a few entries.

http://www.greatcompetitions.co.uk/index.asp

Take the above web site once youve signed up, just login and about 80& require no effort you just click enter me for each one. So in 5 /10 mins you can enter 50+ comps. I dont just enter stuff i like. I enter to win stuff for frineds and family either to just give to them or to save me money and give for their bdays etc

Theres ppl on MSE who on their tag lines have things like wins 2099 £9069 ok thats value of what they won and not hard cash , but that looks about what a lot of mums earn a year working pt

As I have already said, I dont actually enter that many competitions. Most of that has been won over a number of years, have had quite a bit this year though. Not entered many competitions, havent had the time. I will get the odd day when I have time and will enter a load and then wont enter any for weeks or months.

I dont enter as many competitions as DIVA1977 (who you quoted) but I dont get junk mail, well, no more than anyone else does.

Just have to make sure you tick/untick the boxes that say you dont mind them contacting you in future and dont mind them passing your details on to carefully selected companies.
