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 twenty years I’ve won thousands of pounds of prizes in purchase comps, including a car and several holidays.

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.

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 Tesco 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:

Please note that the closing date in the table is when the main promotion ends. Some instant win promos 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 will 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.

Promotions launching soon (these will be added to the list when they’re open!):

Note: The Waitrose Coca-Cola purchase comp that was due to close on 21 January has disappeared from their competitions page! I’m waiting to hear what’s happened to it. 

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!

    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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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 service@crownfield-cereals.com 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.

  5. Neill Johnstone says:

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

  6. 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!

  7. Paula says:

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

  8. 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)!

  9. REBECCA MACBAIN says:

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

  10. Patricia Avery says:

    A much appreciated list. Thank you so much.

  11. 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.

  12. julia linsley says:

    Really useful Thanks

  13. 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

  14. Jonny Price says:

    Great resource, thanks Di.

  15. Tom Morrison says:

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

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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

  19. KRYSTAL Light CUNNINGHAM says:

    Wow! Thank you for all the time and effort xx

  20. james says:

    wow great list Di!

  21. Vicky M says:
