Great Christmas gifts for compers to buy

Are you wondering what to put on your Christmas list this year – or what to buy for family and friends? There are several ‘purchase necessary’ promotions around at the moment that would make great Christmas presents. With most of them you can keep the receipt, order number or neck collar to enter the competition yourself – then gift the product! With golden ticket comps, you probably want to ask for the gift yourself to make sure you’re the lucky winner if you do find a ticket! 

I enjoy entering purchase-necessary promotions because they tend to get far fewer entries than free prize draws, meaning they are easier to win! If you enjoy this type of competition, check my tips for winning on-pack promotions and my Compers Shopping List too.

    Did anyone else enter the LG Earbud competitions? T&Cs say winners should be notified by 11th Jan just wondered if anyone had heard!

    Had a look at the Candy Kittens Gourmies Sainsburys comp in more detail, and it looks like the prize is a one night stay in a London hotel with an Italian name – Baglioni’s!

    • Di says:

      Yes, you’re right! ‘5* Italian staycation’ is a rather weird way to advertise the prize isn’t it? I feel like it should be ‘Win a luxury Italian-themed stay in London’!!
