    Some great photos and well-deserved wins.
    This year has been average for me, quite a few voucher and gift card wins, from Amazon, Waterstones, New Look, John Lewis, and others. I particularly love winning Amazon vouchers as I record them on my account, and have had enough credit to ‘buy’ two iphones in the past couple of years, – one for me and one for my husband.
    Have also won several cheques, the highest amount was £500 from Heart Radio, very pleased with that one.
    During Spring I had a fabulous selection of meat delivered, and we all enjoyed tender steaks and other foods. Also won a selection of bits and pieces for my dog Barney, and outside bird feeders and accessories for the garden.
    We won an entry in Thompson & Morgan’s unusual fruit and veg photo competition, and have been given £50 credit to spend on their website.
    I won a fantastic Ipad Mini from Sudocrem, and several items of jewellery throughout the year.
    Some of my favourite wins have been meals out locally at a couple of locations, and was thrilled to win one year membership to The National Trust, one of the Sunday Times hourly competitions. We’ve enjoyed a couple of visits to local properties, and hope to explore more during Spring and Summer.
    Have been comping for a considerable number of years now, and find that things can go quiet for a while, then you get the loveliest surprise.
    Happy comping everyone!

    Probably not my best comping year but I nevertheless managed 38 prizes. Some of these have been tickets that I have passed on to others,, but I did manage to win a Stanley Gibbons stamp catalogue worth £84 as a runner up prize on their mailing list. I also won a Tastecard which I gave to my son and a juicer which my husband took over but which is now sitting unloved in the kitchen. Finally I had a phone all from Oxfam saying I had won a hamper which arrived the following day in time for Christmas.

    I had a lot of wins my most favourite was a trip to Runnymede as I could take my friends. I had a successful year considering I work full time as well.

  5. Wow what a great year for wins. Well done

    I love reading about your fantastic prizes Di and it has inspired me with more photo comps. Three years ago, before I finished working, I would never have dreamt of walking in a shop dressed as an elf for a selfie – like I have done twice this month! This is the first year I have done a spreadsheet & prizes total just under £9000. I spent hours doing advent comps with very little return, which was disappointing. Good luck for 2017!

    A true inspiration! Such unusual prizes and well worth the effort you put in. I am blown away by your vibrant selfies, mine are pathetic but I’m persevering. Every good wish for your success in 2017. Happy New Year to the Cokes and all Compers! X

    • I blogged about some selfie tips at http://superlucky.me/2015/03/selfie-tips/ Anna – but my favourite tip is to take a photo, and open Instagram to add filters to it. It smooths the skin and adds vibrancy. If you turn your phone onto flight mode, you can add Insta filters and then save the improved photo to use on Facebook, Twitter or web comps without actually sharing on your Instagram feed! Good luck for 2017!

  11. Fantastic – I love your bar charts! And well done on that Turtles photo, I love it!

  12. Fab year for you as usual Di ! I’m heading in to my 15th year of comping and really excited to see what it may bring. I’ve had a fabulous year winning £8000 worth of prizes from Dreams and lots of other lovely things it’s no wonder more and more people join in every year. One of my comping highlights from this year was meeting you at Blog On, you are just as lovely and helpful in real life as you are on your blog. Best of luck for 2017 !

    • It was great to meet you too – I loved Blog On, Laura did an amazing job with it! And well done on that fabulous Dreams win! Wishing you lots of luck for 2017…

    Impressive- I think I need to change my strategy – won about £1k in prizes but nowhere near your level !

    • Well, I have been comping for 20 years now, so I’m definitely aware of which ones to go for to have the best chance of a win! Good luck for 2017 Karen!

    wow – I plan to start comping again this year after a few years off. I am mighty impressed with a cleaner for a year. That would be my dream prize!

    • It’s an ace prize isn’t it – I remember winning £300 of cleaning products from Asda when Ry was a baby which I was really excited enough about, but a cleaner – wow! Good luck when you start comping again Emma – join us in the Lucky Learners Facebook group!

    I’ve had some good wins this year, my favourite was £200 of Love2Shop vouchers with OK magazine. In 2017 I’m determined to win even more and work out how to use Tweetdeck!!

    I didnt keep a record of my wins this year. After last years Advents (which totally confuddled me) I completely lost my mojo for about 4 months. This year I just entered for things I wanted to win. Ive had a few good wins like a bluetooth speaker, a brilliant sleep corrector thingy lol and some smaller bits. Funnily enough, I had a brilliant advent campaign this year with wins totally over £650!! I’m looking forwards to your tips on how to set up a Google spreadsheet. I’m sure you have done it but I need to find out how to unsubscribe from most of the emails I get coming over to me. Its so stressful to go thru them 1 by 1 and unsubscribe! Thanks for all your hints and tips this year. Ive loved every unboxing vid and love to see what you have won (My favorite being the win to Florida entry … Brrrr!!) Good luck for next year and all the best for 2017 🙂

    • Thanks Marsha! I use unroll.me to organise my subscriptions into one daily email, but not everybody likes how it works (you give it access to your account, so it can file everything before it hits your inbox)!

    Wish I was as lucky as you this year, I’ve had a quiet year on the competition winning.
    The only things that I’ve won is a bottle of wine, a bottle of champagne and a candle!!!
    I’m hoping my winning will improve in 2017!!! Xx
