Don’t panic, it’s not the Advent Comps starting early! We still have a couple of weeks to prepare for those…
BUT to get you in the Christmas mood, this year there are a few prize-winning opportunities on real, printed Advent Calendars from Kellogg’s, BonBon Buddies, IKEA and Greggs…
Kellogg’s Variety Advent Calendar
Buy a Kellogg’s Variety Advent Calendar (only available at Tesco), and not only will you have a little cereal box every day but flip the box over and you can take a #CoCoSelfie. In case you’re wondering, the calendar itself is a traditional cardboard calendar with pictures/jokes behind the doors, wrapped around 3 regular Variety 8-packs of cereal!
Snap a photo with Coco’s mouth and share your selfie on the Kellogg’s UK & Ireland Facebook page, or on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #cocoselfie, and you could win one of 24 daily prizes:

Bon Bon Buddies Advent Calendar
Buy a Bon Bon Buddies chocolate calendar (just £1 in both Poundworld and Poundland) and you have the chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 every day from 1st to 24th December. Take a selfie with your calendar and share on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with #LoveMyAdvent to enter. It’s open to ROI, Germany, France & Poland as well as the UK.
The calendar directs you to bonbonbuddies.com/LoveMyAdvent for more info – but there’s nothing there yet, so I’m unsure if you can enter every day with the same photo.
IKEA Advent Calendar
If you’re near an IKEA store (sadly I’m not!) then grab one of their advent calendars – according to the thread on HUKD, prices vary (but start at £2.50), and you may be able to get it cheaper with a Family card.
As well as a guaranteed £5 off voucher inside (which you can use between 1.12.17 – 28.2.18), you might be lucky enough to win an additional voucher. 4,000 calendars will include an extra £5 voucher, 1,000 will include an extra £100 voucher and one will include a £1000 voucher! There are 30,000 advent calendars so that’s a reasonable chance of getting a higher value voucher – good luck!
Greggs Advent Calendar
Along the same lines as IKEA, the Greggs calendar contains a £5 voucher plus 24 more vouchers worth up to £60 in total, plus a unique festive Greggs scene behind each door! If you’re lucky, you might get a £25 voucher instead of a fiver. It’s not cheap though – it’ll set you back £24 and there are only 500 available from Monday 20 November. Find out more here.
Let me know in the comments if you spot any more Advent Calendars offering the chance of a prize!
