Compers shopping list

Purchase-necessary competitions can give you an amazing chance of winning a prize – you buy a product, and as a bonus you’ll be able to enter a prize draw or competition with the packaging or receipt!

Over 24 years I’ve won thousands of pounds of prizes in purchase comps, including a car and several holidays – and most recently a gold beer can plus £10,000 of shares in Brewdog!

The table below shows a list of current purchase-necessary promotions available in UK supermarkets – check it before you go shopping, or print it to take to the shops with you! The promotions listed are ones that I’ve found myself, plus the comps that my blog readers and members of the Lucky Learners group share with me.

For promotions where a receipt is required, it’s usually OK to shop in store or online (but check the Terms & Conditions first!) – a screenshot or photo of your online order qualifies as a receipt. 

Space in the table is limited, so if you want to find out more, see a photo of promotional packaging, or ask questions, please do join us in the Lucky Learners Facebook group and check our photo album of current purchase comps for the individual chat threads. 

Click the column headers in the table and you can sort by store, closing date, or product name. I’ll be regularly updating, new additions will have a NEW icon added and you’ll always see the date of the latest update at the top of this post.

The links in the table will either take you to my own SuperLucky blog post about the promotion, or directly to the promotion website or Terms & Conditions. For some text comps, it will be a photo of the in-store display if the T&Cs aren’t yet online. 

If you’re new to purchase comps you might like to read the following blog posts before you get stuck in – they will help you understand which type of promotion gives you the best chance of a win, and advise on whether you only need to buy a single product to make multiple entries. 

Please note that the closing date in the table is when the main promotion ends. Some instant win promotions have one or more late entry draws (also called mop-up, sweep-up, wrap-up, or catch-all draws) which can be several months after the instant wins finish. These late draws usually just have a single prize so it’s not worth keeping the products listed here, when flashed packs are likely to have long since disappeared off the shelves…

List of current purchase-necessary comps 

Click/tap the column headers to sort – click ‘closing date’ twice to change the order to earliest date first! A NEW icon at the starts shows the latest additions to the list.

Key to promotion type:
WM = winning moment, IW = instant win, PD = prize draw, STW = swipe/scan to win, J = judged. A ☆  indicates that the product you need to buy has specific promotional packaging, sticker or neck tag. A thumbs down 👎 icon indicates the promotion is algorithmic, and less than 5% of advertised prizes are likely to be won – I don’t recommend this format!

Spotted an in-store or on-pack promotion that’s missing from the shopping list?
Let me know in the comments below, and I’ll add it.

Promos starting soon (I’ll add these to the list when they start)

If you do enjoy purchase-necessary competitions, I recommend Compers News magazine (my affiliate link) and its private Chatterbox forum, where you can often be the first to hear about the latest on-pack promotions. Compers News usually costs £4.95 a month, but at the moment your first issue will cost just £1! Members can access all previous issues online, and there’s no commitment to an annual subscription so you can unsubscribe at any time.

I also recommend using the Supermarket Comparison tool on the Latest Deals mobile app, so you can see where to get promotional products at the cheapest price!

    Thanks for this list Di, it’s really useful! Just wondering if you’ve heard of any problems with the One Stop Ben’s rice bounceback emails. I’ve tried texting twice with no response, but the t&c do say that a bounceback confirmation should be received.

  2. HELENA says:

    buy Richmond sausages fom co op text RICHMOND NAME AND POSCODE TO 83100

    • John Ettery says:

      Please may I ask, what is the prize please? I ask because I only enter comps for prizes I really want to win, eg I don’t enter comps for DVD’s Beauty Products etc.

  3. Sue says:

    Thanks for the list. I managed to win a few Love2shop vouchers on the now closed Cadburys Win The Captain competition. Thanks for your efforts.

    • Di says:

      I entered this one daily and won nothing – congratulations! Maybe I’ll get lucky on Match and Win next season.

      • KelleyP says:

        I didn’t win anything on the Cadburys WTC competition either but I have won a £50 Adidas voucher in the nestle competition, I bought a packet of Shreddies from Tesco online and uploaded my receipt and was one of the 3 people drawn for that day. Really pleased. I have to provide ID and confirm my details but that’s fine. I also won a £15 Team GB voucher in the Yoplait competition and have chosen a small microfiber towel to use at Golf, very pleased with that.

  4. Nadia J says:

    Firstly, I have to say a big Thank You for this fab list!
    I wondered if anyone knows if you need to buy a new loaf of Jackson’s bread for each new entry or can you use the same barcode? The Ts&C’s don’t say you need a new code but on the website after you’ve entered one time it says “Thanks, buy another loaf and enter again” but this might just be to encourage you to buy more!

    • Di says:

      T&Cs say “”Please retain promotional packaging and receipt dated within the Main Promotional Period for each individual entry, as they will be required for verification in the event of a win” which suggests you need a new receipt for every entry. I’m trying to find out if there have been any winners yet an if they were asked to provide receipt(s) to claim!

  5. Yvonne L says:

    Hi Di – there seems to be a Robinson comp going on that I couldn’t see on here. Is it one you would usually list?

  6. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di, Looking at the Co Op/Nisa promotion to win a Volkswagen campervan. I keep reading through the terms and conditions and can’t work out whether you can just purchase one Amstel product and enter every day, or whether you have to purchase another product each time before you enter again. What do you think?

    • Di says:

      One purchase/receipt will be fine for this one – there’s nothing in T&Cs to suggest you need a separate receipt for each entry (and it would also be rather irresponsible to request this, with it being alcohol!)

  7. Melanie Walker says:

    For the polo comp can you just purchase once?

    • Di says:

      Yes. T&Cs say you can enter once a day but there’s no mention of needing a separate purchase for each entry.

  8. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di,
    Have you any idea what the ‘Epic Football Prizes’ are in the Sainsbury’s Oatibix swipe to win promotion? It doesn’t seem to mention them in the terms and conditions.

  9. Melanie Walker says:

    The t&c’s for the Odeon comp don’t seem to be working. Can someone remind me of the purchase and entry please.

  10. Jay Gee says:

    Hello Di
    The Vivera Shawarma – Ts & Cs say one entry per pack purchased…no mention of any proof needed nor how many entries per person per day…is there anything to stop people entering hundreds of times and winning?

    • Di says:

      This promotion hasn’t been well thought out at all – and as you say, there’s no mention of the winner providing proof of purchase! I would usually drop the promoter a line with some advice, but as T&Cs shouldn’t be altered they probably wouldn’t take it on board until their next promotion!

  11. Richi says:

    Hello Di? Just to let you know the link for Cadbury odeon £5k promoterms website is not working, can you take a look please.

  12. John Ettery says:

    I used to be on Plusnet, and you can’t send texts to short numbers, and as my contract was only a rolling one I switched to 3, which enables me to enter ALL short number text comps

  13. Lak says:

    Thank you very much for this list..any one tried Oreo text message? Unqble to send it to 60777

    • Di says:

      What network are you on? Some won’t allow texts to 60777! I’ve entered successfully this evening.

      • Lak says:

        Oh is it? I have plusnet May be thats why it was not going through.. sad..
        Thanks for letting me know

  14. Nicola Coveney says:

    Is the Lindor coop one a Text one, not STW?

  15. Elaine Hollis says:

    So much for “unique codes” on Threemills wine, I got the same code on 2 labels. No reply from their customer service either.

  16. elisa says:

    Hi Di,
    questions on the whole earth comp – t&c’s state u can enter once per qualifying product ?? does that mean u can enter 4 times per person as it running across 4 items in their range ??

  17. saffron isaacs says:

    can i reuse the same batch code the next day for the BFL comp or does it need to be a new pack?

  18. Trish says:

    I won £100 & tube of mints on the Trebor competition. Time wise I did it mid morning. Thanks Di for your tips.

  19. Sue says:

    Hi – is anyone else having problems entering the the Waitrose Balhsen competition? The entry form just keeps updating & asking for new code to be entered ‍♀️

    • Di says:

      Sorry to hear this problem is back again Sue – it’s been ongoing for years and Waitrose have still not managed to fix it! I think the only solution is just to keep trying and eventually it should work.

  20. Jo Taylor says:

    Di what is the comp type for Belvoir? It says W< on the list, not sure if it’s just a typo

  21. John Ettery says:

    Once again Di, THANK YOU so much

  22. John Ettery says:

    Hello Di
    Please excuse my lack of nouse, but what do you need to do to enter the “Whole Earth” peanut butter comp, to enter for the £15k Prize.
    I have bought what I think is a special jar, it has ” Win Team GB prizes” on it. I have followed the link, but cannot find out how to enter

  23. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di,
    Can we use the same one purchase of KP product to enter weekly? Or do you have to buy a new one each week?
    Thank you.

    • Di says:

      I think it’s fine to buy once, there’s nothing in the T&Cs to suggest it should be a new pack per entry or that multiple receipts and packaging will be required to validate a win!

  24. Bic says:

    Do we have any t&c’s for the Sainsburys Coca Cola purchase, there doesn’t seem to be any when I click on?

  25. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di, The whole earth peanut butter promotion, I can’t see the terms and conditions. How many times can you enter? And also how do you enter? When I click the link on the website it keeps taking me around in circles. Thanks.

  26. Hector says:

    The Flipz competition is only valid for purchases in Coop or Nisa.

  27. KelleyP says:

    Thank you so much Di for compiling the purchase necessary comps. I saw the Tesco Coke Zero Comp on here & for the cost of a 1.25L bottle, with just the one attempt, I have won a year’s supply of Coke Zero (368 cans) & a £250 Tesco gift card. I couldn’t believe it but am thrilled.

  28. Paula says:

    Cant for the life of me see any limit to number of entries on Rustlers comp, but can’t get a second entry to go in. (I have purchased 5 burgers between 2 receipts…)???

    Anyone else?

    • Di says:

      It’s not clear at all from the T&Cs but Rustlers have told me it’s just a single entry per person, and losing entries roll over to the following draws. Looks like you’ll have to pass your second receipt on to a friend to enter with!

  29. Elaine Hollis says:

    Bought a Feasters from Heron as they were only £1.29 but the comp won’t accept the till receipt. Tried umpteen different photos but it keeps saying “The computer says that’s not a receipt, did something go wrong?Please have another go at uploading a valid receipt.” Surely it shouldn’t matter where you bought the product?

    • andy morris says:

      hi elaine….guess who lol ..its probably just their comuter system not recognizing your upload

      • Elaine Hollis says:

        Hi Andy.
        Tried 3 different receipts and gave up in the end. Nearly as frustrating as that darned Waitrose catcha fiasco!

  30. andy morris says:

    another member of my comp site has just emailed me saying a FitBit from the Pedigree Dentasticks one has turned up in post and hasnt been asked for any proof of purchase..shes the sister of the one that won a lindt hamper from Asda one that didnt ask for proof of purchase

    • Di says:

      That’s correct, no receipts were asked for and no winning notifications were sent. I won too.

      • andy morris says:

        these POP comps are a bit of a joke….you clcarly DONT need to buy their products to enter

        • Di says:

          For most T&Cs it does say a POP ‘MAY be required to claim the prize’ – however for Pedigree/Perfect Fit it does specifically say “proof of purchase WILL be required to claim a prize” so it’s strange that they’ve decided not to ask for it – particularly as Dreamies are owned by the same company as Pedigree (Mars) and they’ve been very strict on seeing receipts before sending prizes. I always think it’s better to play safe and if it says a purchase is necessary, then you should buy the product. But it would be better if promoters did stick to their own T&Cs!

  31. AMANDA COFFMAN says:

    I won a magazine subs with the Wagon Wheels competition!

  32. andy morris says:

    i run a competition site and one of my members has emailed me saying her sister has won a Asda Lindt hamper but they didnt ask to see her receipt

    • Di says:

      To be honest, for a lot of these prize draws you won’t be asked for the receipt. But it’s a big risk to enter without one just in case they do!

      • andy morris says:

        i looked at T and Cs and it says a till receipt MAY BE required …… comps like that run by dumb companies should specify when and when not a receipt is needed ..other wise it takes the P out of saying a purchase is needed to enter

        • andy morris says:

          its the same with the Spar wine one…comp says buy a bottle of wine to enter yet theres nothing in terms that says you have to prove you bought a bottle

        • Di says:

          I agree. It’s frustrating for those of us that make the purchase to find out that the winners were not asked to provide proof of purchase – that’s why I like the Tesco and Waitrose competitions that ask for receipt numbers/photos up front.

  33. Elaine says:

    Having difficulty entering the code for the Lidl Crownfield cereal products for £500. It is a 8 digit number which I found on the side of the packet, but jut coming up error all the time – very annoying.

  34. Elaine says:

    I was wanting to enter the Miami Mimosa Cocktail comp to win a trip to Miami with Waitrose, but none of the Waitrose stores in Scotland stock this item so a bit disappointed that I can’t enter it. I tried to send a note about it on the comp site, but wasn’t sure who to send it to.

    Any ideas?

  35. Mcj says:

    I’ll be going to Asda to buy Nivea Q10 products.

  36. Frances Heaton says:

    I will be buying the Cadbury’s Creme eggs. They have had them on promotion at Tesco, and we all enjoy them. Winning the cash would be a brilliant treat.

  37. Anna says:

    Hi Di just a quick question can you entry the Perfect Fit one daily? I have one receipt Thanks

  38. Linda says:

    Is it worth paying to join simply prizes i did it before and didn’t win nothing

    • Di says:

      I don’t recommend Simply Prizes at all Linda. You really don’t need to pay any money to be successful at comping as everything you need is available for free online on websites, forums and in Facebook groups. If you DO want to spend money on a magazine, opt for Compers News which is much better value because it gives you membership to the excellent private Chatterbox message board. You can subscribe to CN using my affiliate link at and your first issue will be £1 – you can always cancel if you don’t like it!

  39. Harls says:

    Hi di I am trying to enter the one stop quavers comp and it says enter the qr code at the point of sale I have a receipt but couldn’t find a qr code to generate a keyword any suggestions many thanks

  40. Dale Askew says:

    I love this handy shopping list. I check it each time I’m heading out for essentials. Thanks Di!

  41. Carla Fox says:

    Hi, I was looking for some of these products yesterday in the supermarket and quite a few didn’t have the competitions advertised on the packaging, eg. Uncle Ben’s, Hop House Lager, Cadbury Creme eggs, is that because those competitions haven’t been launched yet or do they sometimes not advertise them on the packaging?

    • Di says:

      There’s a key above the table Carla, it explains that a star next to the product means it’s in promo packaging (Hophouse gift sets) . If there’s no star (Uncle Ben’s, Creme Egg) then the packaging is normal.

  42. Jean Vaughan says:

    Di, for the first time ever I’m ready to enter on Day 1 of the Nescafe salary competition but no matter how I try it will not accept my county, it flits back to Cheshire every time I press enter. Is this happening for you or anyone else? And of course it is saying error every time.

    • Di says:

      Yes, lots of people have this same issue! I was able to choose mine, after typing Ea it came up with Ea Sussex, then East Sussex. There’s clearly something wrong with that part of the form!

  43. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di, Is it my imagination or has the Coca-Cola competition on the Waitrose site disappeared early?

    • Di says:

      It has – there’s a conversation in Lucky Learners about this and Waitrose have been contacted! The qualifiers are pricey so I would imagine they will reinstate it this week.

      • Hazel Lemar says:

        Thank you for your comments Di. I won’t rush back to return my purchase if it reappears!

  44. Joseph Harper says:

    Hi, I’ve been trying to enter the competition at Crownfield cereals (Lidl) but can’t input the codes as it is very confusing and keeps coming up with “error”. Can you please check this out and advise, thank you.

    • Di says:

      Your best bet is to email the organiser at Joseph!

      • Joseph Harper says:

        I’ve just done so, so we’ll see what kind of response I get. Many thanks for the info, Joe.

        • Joseph Harper says:

          They did get back to me and instructed that I had to put the first 4 digits in the the first box, and the remaining 4 digits in the second box.
          I had tried this previously without success but have now managed to enter the codes without a problem.
          Many thanks, Joe.

  45. Neill Johnstone says:

    I love that you can sort this by retailer AND by product – you’re a hero!

  46. Psula says:

    Oops. Sorry ignore me. Just noticed London Pride details are further down same page.

    • Di says:

      No worries – Asahi own Peroni, London Pride, Meantime and Grolsch too so all T&Cs should appear on that same page for those beer promotions, it’s definitely worth bookmarking!

  47. Paula says:

    Hi Di, Thanks for the update today but notice the London Pride link goes to the Peroni page?

  48. Julie Scattergood says:

    Thank you so much for doing this Di. Is there anyway I can link to it? (I like to save link to my home screen if poss)

    • Di says:

      What device and browser do you use? On Android you should be able to access the menu in your browser, and ADD TO HOMESCREEN. On an iPhone you won’t be able to do this in Chrome but you can in Safari (tap the share icon (middle of screen at bottom) and scroll down to ADD TO HOMESCREEN)!


    This is brilliant, Ive printed it all out! just clicked on the mudhouse wine link and its saying the promotion has ended though?!

  50. Patricia Avery says:

    A much appreciated list. Thank you so much.

  51. John Ettery says:

    Oh Di, you have given me a new lease of life re comping, I am so disorganised, I have a folder for receipts eg Jan to Dec, but reading your tips, I’m going out today and buy a small stapler, to add receipts to wrappers, and I’ll have a look for something for the bottles etc. I have been quite lucky in the past with some big wins on Free to enter comps, but am going to satrt working on “POPS”. Thank You Thank You….for the excellent advice.

  52. julia linsley says:

    Really useful Thanks

  53. Ellie says:

    Di you’re a star, I wish there was a way to compile such a list for ROI but I wouldn’t even know where to start. I hate feeling how ROI/NI//UK are so divided when it comes to purchase to enter comps. We all use pretty much the same brands and I would love a reason to leave the house lol Thanks for the fantastic list anyway! Much appreciated

  54. Jonny Price says:

    Great resource, thanks Di.

  55. Tom Morrison says:

    A nice quick reference for products with comps on them, many thanks

  56. Gill says:

    That’s spooky, Di. I have literally just written out a comping shopping list, ready to head out in the morning. I decided to be organised for once!! Ha, ha!
    Well, I just put my iPad on to charge overnight, picked up my phone, my comp shopping list and decided to take one last look at my iPad…..and there was your announcement but your new shopping list, on my screen.
    Thanks for setting this up. It’s a great idea and much appreciated.

  57. Rebecca Beesley says:

    This is AMAZING! I had planned to do more purchase necessary this year as I hardly ever do them but it’s been a tricky year for it when its been hard at times to get hold of basic essential foods. Hopefully can use this list as a prompt for shopping. Thank you x

  58. KRYSTAL Light CUNNINGHAM says:

    There’s a great competition on RYMAN’s at the moment. Win a £50 voucher for playing monsters match- entered forfree. Make a purchase instore to get a code to win stationary xxx

  59. KRYSTAL Light CUNNINGHAM says:

    Wow! Thank you for all the time and effort xx

  60. james says:
