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 £15,000 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.
Take a photo of your receipt, barcode or unique code
My advice is to take a photo of your receipt (ideally, with the product, unique code or barcode alongside it) as soon as you get home from your supermarket trip.
Save this photo into a ‘receipts’ album on your phone. Then if you do lose the receipt, you still have a photo of it to validate a win – and if you included the product in your photo you’ll be able to locate the correct receipt easily when swiping through your phone’s camera roll!
I then file away my receipts, codes and packaging in an expanding file with 12 monthly sections. There’s more advice in my blog post How to organise quallies, receipts and POPs.
Space in the table is limited, so if you want to find out more details, see a photo of promotional packaging, or ask questions, please do join us in the Lucky Learners Facebook group for the individual chat threads (these are linked in the table too).
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.
- A guide to purchase necessary promotions
- Top tips: Winning on-pack promotions
- Purchase-necessary promotions: just one receipt, or one receipt per entry?
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…
How to use the Compers Shopping List
The product name is a clickable link – it 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 might be a link to view a photo of the in-store display if the T&Cs aren’t yet online.
Click the column headers in the table and you can sort by store, closing date, or product name. I’ll be regularly updating the table, new additions each day will have a NEW icon added and you’ll always see the date of the latest update at the top of this post.
In the final column, there’s a clickable link to the chat thread about that particular promotion in my Lucky Learners Facebook group (you will need to be a group member to see the chat post).
Key to promotion type:
- IW = instant win
- WM = winning moment (a specific type of instant win)
- PD = prize draw
- STW = swipe to win/scan to win (eg. Nectar, Co-op loyalty card prize draws)
- J = judged (usually a photo or tiebreaker competition)
- A ☆ icon indicates that the product you need to buy has specific promotional packaging, sticker or neck tag. If there’s no star, it’s OK to buy the product in regular packaging.
- A thumbs down 👎 icon indicates the promotion is an algorithmic instant win, and less than 5% of advertised prizes are likely to be won – I don’t recommend this format!
- A NEW icon at the starts shows the latest additions to the list
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.
If you’re buying products for a competition and you won’t use them, please consider donating them to a food bank. If you share a photo of your donation on social media before 24.12.21 you could even win a £50 supermarket voucher in my exclusive #FoodbankAdvent competition for SuperLucky readers!
Certain UK supermarkets have prize draws where you’re automatically entered if you add a certain product to your online order – these aren’t included in the shopping list but you can find current comp details in my Facebook group:
…also check out the Asda golden skates hunt, where you can enter the weekly prize draws when you make an online order up until 22 December 2021!

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, or the new trolley.co.uk website so you can see where to get promotional products at the cheapest price!
