List of UK competition websites
As a new comper, how can you tell which websites to trust with your details? This post – which is updated regularly – lists all the major UK competition websites – good and bad.
If you’re a promoter looking for advice on where to share your competition or prize draw, click to read Where to promote a competition instead. If you’re based outside the UK, check out my list of worldwide competition websites!
When people take up comping, their first instinct is to search Google for competitions. Search results will take them to websites and adverts tempting them with fabulous cash and holiday prizes. They sign up, get bombarded with spam emails – and lose all enthusiasm for the hobby!
When you register with a data collection website like My Offers, your details are passed on to various companies (loans, gas & electric suppliers, insurance companies etc.). The prizes are genuine, but the competitions themselves will be featured across many websites and get hundreds of thousands of entries. In this post you’ll find a list of these spam-generating websites – my recommendation is to avoid them!
If you’re new to comping, your best bet is to stick to entering comps from promoters you trust – magazines, products, shops and companies. Enter directly on their websites or social media pages, and check any tick boxes carefully to see if you are agreeing to further correspondence – in particular don’t tick a box that says your details will be passed on to third parties. It shouldn’t make any difference to your chance of winning a prize draw if you decide not to join a mailing list! You should also set up a new email address to use only for competitions (I recommend Gmail) – and have a good read of my Get Started guide for more advice.
You can rest assured the competitions I share on the SuperLucky website (and my Facebook page) won’t generate spam – as a comper myself I only feature promotions and links to brands I trust. If you’re a promoter and would like to feature your competition on SuperLucky, please contact me for costs.
Competition forums you can trust
If you want to be certain you’re not clicking on spam-generating links – which appear on all sorts of websites – stick to finding competitions on forums, where users post up the links. It’s rare for a dodgy promotion to feature, as they are usually quickly flagged up and removed by the admin team.
- Latest Deals Competition Forum features free-to-enter UK competitions, with friendly community members posting over 100 new comps every day, as well as sharing answers and tips. You can earn Latest Deals points for all forum contributions, which can be exchanged for Amazon vouchers.
- MoneySavingExpert Competition Time forum (MSE) is vast and can be confusing for new compers. There’s no way to sort the prizes by category, but you can view by closing date order – if you have a lot of time to dedicate to comping, it’s great. If you don’t, use the forum search to look for specific prizes and competition types. You don’t need to register to access the competition posts, but if you do use it regularly you might want to get stuck in and post competitions yourself.
- Hot UK Deals Competition forum has comps submitted by members, and you can view by category – you don’t need to join to access the listings.
- Loquax Competition forum requires registration before you can access the competition listings on the forum, but it’s a smart and well-organised system. The benefit of a forum which requires log-in is that the listings won’t appear on a Google search – this means less entries than comps listed on MSE or The PrizeFinder.
Competition listings sites you can trust
At the moment these sites don’t feature links to any spam-generating websites, but you might encounter adverts.
- www.rosemaryandporkbelly.co.uk (although not a competition site, this is an excellent resource for travel and holiday comps!)
- www.travelscoop.co.uk/posts/competitions (travel competitions for UK residents – check out the Travelscoop Facebook group too)
Competition listings sites with affiliate links
The sites listed below are funded by paid links and advertising, but can be a good resource for comps. Once you become aware of the spam-generating sites (see list further down), you should be able to quickly spot and skip the adverts and links while comping. Stick to the links that take you directly to a promoter’s website or social media.
- www.theprizefinder.com (if you register your details, you can access answers and the tracker BUT you’re also allowing your details to be passed on to other companies)
UK competition websites with their own exclusive giveaways
These websites host their own giveaways and also list their winners – these websites do feature ads, so be careful to avoid clicking on any ads that link to the spam-generating sites in the list further down this post!
- https://winthedraw.co.uk – enter daily for more chances to win these exclusive prize draws
- www.PrizeDeck.com (register for free by entering your details once and then you can enter all their exclusive prize draws – you’ll ONLY receive emails directly from PrizeDeck and they list all their winners on site
- Checklist – Hurst Media’s Checklist website has quick to enter prize draws, these are advertised widely so get a lot of entries
Daily entry & Click-to-win websites
Most UK magazine competitions are hosted online – you can enter each prize draw every day to increase your chance of winning, and will need to register and sign in for each different website. These are often nicknamed ‘Click to Win’ comps.
Some prize draws feature across multiple magazine websites, and you can enter on every one. Watch out for the tick boxes to opt in for further information – avoid where possible! These prize draws are time consuming, involve lots of adverts and sponsorship, and the chance of winning is low. I recommend you only get involved if you have lots of spare comping time on your hands, and focus on the prizes you really want! Find out more and get lots of tips in my guide to Click To Win Competitions.
www.giveawaytreasures.co.uk run competitions on behalf of some of the UK’s biggest magazines such as Good Housekeeping, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan and many more. All of their competitions are completely free to enter and all the URLs start with ‘comps’. For example, Prima comps are at https://comps.prima.co.uk/ and Marie Claire comps are at https://comps.marieclaire.co.uk/
Paid subscription sites you can trust
No matter what websites might tell you, comping need not cost you a penny – if you do decide to spend money on the hobby, my recommendation would be to join Compers News as you get a printed/digital magazine and chat forum access for £4.95 a month – use my referral link to get your first issue for just £1! Here are some other subscription-based competition sites you can trust:
- www.compersnews.com (subscription includes monthly listings magazine & private forum)
- www.competitorscompanion.com (NOT related to Competitors Companion magazine)
- www.twitaculous.com (you must connect to your Twitter account)
Pay-to-enter UK competition websites
There are also a lot of websites that charge you to enter prize draws and competitions. The prizes are genuine but please think carefully before spending money on these sites as it can be addictive. Examples are BOTB and BnGet (both of these host skill-based competitions, where the closest answer will win – so, if you spend more money and are good at spot the ball you’re more likely to win). Other pay-to-enter prize draw ‘raffle’ websites give a small percentage of their revenue to charity – but it’s still a very expensive way to enter a random prize draw, and can be the first step towards a dangerous gambling habit. I don’t recommend raffle sites – read my post Unregulated prize draws and competitions leading to huge debt to find out why!
Global Radio host paid entry competitions on their Win+ platform – again, I would suggest you avoid these £2 entry draws and instead check the Heart, Capital and Radio X websites for details of the on-air comps that you can enter for free, or for the cost of a standard rate text message! See my post How to win radio competitions for tips on winning radio comps without spending lots of money!
Spam-generating survey and competition websites
The sites listed below do have genuine prizes, but with a tiny chance of winning. If you tick the boxes when entering prize draws, they will generate spam email, junk mail and phone calls, and in my opinion are a waste of your time.
Other advice on competition websites
- If you receive a letter from Wye Valley Promotions – (Prize Directory, or the National Competition & Survey Entrants Register) asking you to make a £9 phone call to find out if you’ve won a prize, make sure you remove yourself from their mailing list – read more here
- Beware of prize draws promoted by Discover365, Optical Express or Thomas Sanderson – they will badger you with annoying phone calls and texts!
- There are lots of ‘tick boxes’ on some online magazine prize draws – Roboform custom settings can help you to tick the ‘No’ boxes, but always double check you’re not opting in to junk mail before submitting
- Most competitions hosted on Facebook timelines, Instagram or Twitter are safe, as no personal details are collected at the point of entry. It’s when you give out your email address, postal address or phone number you should be checking the T&Cs and watching which boxes you tick! Watch out for giveaways on Facebook scam pages though – if there’s no website address listed on their About section, don’t trust them!
- Profile cloning is rife on Facebook and Instagram – be suspicious of long messages with bad grammar, and a link to complete a claim form online for your prize. NEVER give your credit card details or make any payments to receive a prize.
- Learn how to spot a scam email in your inbox or spot a scam text message
- Finally, don’t get tempted by subscribing to Automated Entry Services that will enter competitions on your behalf (eg. Win 24) – most promoters will delete entries from these services so it’s a waste of your money.
These are my own opinions based on my own experiences of these UK competition websites, and the experiences of fellow compers – you can always google a website name plus the word ‘review’ for people’s opinions too.
Please do leave me a comment – is there a new website you’d like me to add to the list, or simply to let me know which website you would recommend to new compers!
Thank you for such a great article some great advice
Hi, Thank you so much for all the great advice and help.
Do you have a list of websites from Canada? Or do you know where I could find it?
I’m living in Canada and most of your sites are from the UK. Which I totally understand since that’s where you live.
If not that’s okay. You were helpful either way.
Here you go Maria (it’s linked at the top of this page in the second paragraph!) https://superlucky.me/list-of-worldwide-competition-websites/ – you should follow @contestqueen as she’s based in Canada!
Do you still use twitaculous now that they charge a fee?
I’ve never used it Karen – and I wasn’t aware they no longer have a free option so I’ve moved it to the ‘paid’ section of my listings here!
Storm competitions seem genuine, I know someone who won a car with them. The draw is live online & looks ok.
I tried to visit the http://www.rosemaryandporkbelly.co.uk website today and I can’t seem to get in as usual. I was taken to a page with the message ‘This site can’t provide a secure connection’.
Have you any idea if this is an on going problem?
Apparently their website host has a big problem and is currently trying to get all the sites back online!
Thanks Di, and to everyone for your concern and understanding.
Our website host says we are ‘in the queue’ but can’t tell us when the problem will be fixed.
It’s so frustrating when it’s not of our making – but we will be back soon, doing what we love!
I hope it’s fixed soon for you guys – what a pain!
Great article. I have recently started my own Raffle website. It has taken a lot of work registering the business, sorting legal documents, making everything legal and legit, terms and conditions, privacy policies etc etc etc . I find it particularly frustrating that all the scams and dodgy sites out there make it difficult for the genuine sites to get noticed. There are so many now that many of us just get looked over as another iffy business or money making machine. Yes, I hope to make a small profit but for me it’s mainly to create a nice community that is fun to part to be part of. I’m now 60 years of age so making a fortune is of no interest to me! Can you suggest ways of promoting my site to the right sort of people? Anyways, I’ve waffled enough. Great article and I hope your followers avoid the bad boys.
Kind Regards Chris.
Thanks for the message Chris. I’m not a fan of pay-to-enter raffle websites which is why I don’t promote them on SuperLucky – I get an email every week from someone who has set up a new site! They’re a rip off and I prefer to direct my readers to free entry competitions, and purchase-necessary prize draws where if you spend money to enter you get a product too.
Thanks for the reply. I totally understand your reasoning and respect your views. I wasn’t trying to attract your readers to my site. Just making a point regarding all these new sites that don’t have any legal set up at all. It gets us that have gone through the correct process a bad name. I have free Raffles and give away a lot of free credit. So in my humble opinion it is down to the user to decide whether it is worth using my site or not. Not all pay-to-enter Raffle websites are the same in their approach. Thanks again for the reply and I hope your readers win plenty!
I won’t bother you anymore, just expressing a point of view! You have a great view of comp sites. Take care Chrid
Hi Di, I have visited the Loquax site and in their house competition section I have been directed to Raffall the competition app as I want to enter the Donegal house raffle via the free route. In the postal entry instructions on the Raffall site it requires that you put your user ID and the RAFFALL ID. I have registered so I know my user ID, but I can’t see where to obtain the RAFFALL ID. There doesn’t seem to be any ID on the details for that particular house. I can’t see how to contact them. And the Loquax forum doesn’t have an answer so far. I’d be grateful for any ideas. Thanks
Fantastic bit of information, thank you! Now I know what sites to avoid and have a decent list of genuine sites to try out. Thanks again
I dont BOTB in your list. Can I trust that site ? please let me know as I dont want to waste my salary on it —- Please delete this if its not appropriate comment
If you read the section titled ‘Pay-to-enter UK competition websites’ I mention BOTB in there!
Thanks so much for this useful advice Di. I do try and avoid the ones you have listed as they ask too many personal details but its really good to have this verified by you. I do most of my comps via Prizefinder having moved from Loquax years ago and find them fine as long as you ignore the offers type comps as in your list which are pretty obvious anyway. I actually won their £50 winners story this month so can vouch for this.
Hi Michelle, I use Loquax – just wondered why you moved? Cheers Neil
I’ve entered a few on Instagram while on lockdown and get this reply

I’ve just ignored them are they scam sites?
Yes, unfortunately this is a very common scam – read all about it at https://superlucky.me/facebook-instagram-profile-cloning-scam/
Fabulous thanks for your help and the link
A really good online competition website is MonstaGiveaways!!! Just look at the amount of excellent reviews they have, that’s what convinced me to give them a try. Low odds or weekly live draws on their social media profiles – check them out https://www.monstagiveaways.com
Many years ago I entered competitions by something called London Calling. They had a group of similar competitions and were constantly emailing me to do more. They were very, very difficult to unsubscribe from as they ignored their own unsubscribe button, and had a lot of alias email addresses, and years later I am still getting some horrible spam emails that I think were because I gave London Calling my email address. I haven’t touched competitions since, other than the occasional one from reputable companies.
Hi – we recently launched a free UK competitions aggregator at https://newcomps.co.uk – we would appreciate it a ton if you would include us in the list of suggested websites in this article!
Thanks for the comment Yannis – feel free to email me about your site at firstname.lastname@example.org. There’s very little content on it so I won’t include in the list above just yet!
Hi Di – would you reconsider listing us in your article? We now work hard daily to bring enough volume of free-only competitions- our traffic has been growing massively!
I still think the site just isn’t comprehensive or user friendly enough with all the ads slowing it down Yannis – it’s just not an option that would compare with the others listed yet. But keep working on it!
Fantastic advice, thank you Di! I’m going to start this hobby up again I think. I used to do them when they were all postcard only comps and you had to pay 19p for the stamp! No excuses now they’re free to do but less chances of winning with 1000’s more entries. We shall see!
Hi Di, I see Iwon-Iwon didn’t make the list? Is that legit, trustworthy or just avoid??
It’s absolutely trustworthy – I probably missed them off this list because they get a mention on my dailies post (https://superlucky.me/instantwins/) and also my click to wins (https://superlucky.me/click-win-competitions/)! But you’re right, their main site https://iwon.iwcomps.com/ should probably be on this list too – I’ll add it in!
I am fairly new to comping, but I often use https://www.likewow.co.uk which runs some nice exclusive competitions and quite regularly.
They also add new ones each day, but they also have ads on the site.
Hope this helps,
Hiya I’ma new comper and wondered if ‘the draw’ web site is safe and does it cost money to enter.
This one? – https://winthedraw.co.uk/ – it’s absolutely trustworthy and all draws are free to enter!
This site is great
Uk deals and giveaways always have good giveaways on their Facebook page and they have them on their website
This post features websites that list competitions from elsewhere Sam, so UK Deals & GIveaways isn’t appropriate for it . It only has a couple of giveaways, which are their own and link to their Facebook page.
Hi Di, have you come across Dream Big Competitions?
Just had a quick Google and it looks like it’s going to be yet another ‘make a quick buck’ raffle type paid entry website. They’ve launched a £1000 cash giveaway on Instagram with no T&Cs at all, so I wouldn’t trust them to honour the prize. https://www.instagram.com/p/CP5mt54hHCd/
I’ve resently been feeling like I needed something new in my life, as a single mum of two and only working part time, I have many night nights when the kids are in bed and I’m sat on my own. I was looking for a cheap hobby to keep me occupied and I think I may have just found it. Comping!!!!. I signed up to Latest Deals a couple of days ago and that got me hooked, having now read your very informative blog, i am now going to look into this as a hobby and best of all it’s free to do and i might to win some great prizes. Thanks for all the advice and tips. Kerry xxx
Good luck Kerry! Don’t forget to join us in Lucky Learners for encouragement! https://www.facebook.com/groups/luckylearners
Hi Kerry, how’s it going? Have you won anything yet?!
I came across prizemaster.net, do you know if this is a site to be trusted or one to avoid please? From what I’ve seen, I don’t think a very good resource as prizes are out of date and they ask for your bank details!!
What do you think?
Thanks for any help,
hello has anyone got any information about whatsupforgrabs.co.uk please ? I cant access their site for some reason ? I woud be grateful for any information thanks
This site is great
Hi Di, I love entering travel comps and usually use rosemaryandporkbelly but have recently come across this nice little site for travel comps https://www.worldtravelcompetitions.com/ looks pretty new but has great listings
Hi Di, please delete if not appropriate, but these two links might be useful for your article. Travelscoop only list verified travel competitions for UK residents at https://travelscoop.co.uk/posts/competitions. Perhaps more usefully though, Travel Competitions UK is the largest Facebook competition group for travel and holiday competitions and can be found at https://www.facebook.com/groups/travelcompetitions/. There is a thriving community of compers there and anyone is welcome to join and contribute competitions that they find.
Hi, great site by the way I just wanted to ask if there was much difference between mse forum and competition database? The layout of competition database is much better
Hi do you know anything about Omaze? It seemed real but hard to tell and seems to be a lot of spam emails.
http://www.omaze.com is a great website which offers unusual prizes (often involving a celebrity!). You pay for an entry into the prize draw, but most of that money goes to charity (minus the admin fee of Omaze). You can occasionally earn free entries into the draw too. They do send a lot of emails though, so you may want to unsubscribe!
Hi Di, I launched PrizeTicker.com last month for listing & promoting competitions – the site has zero ads / affiliate links / sign up requirements & I want to keep it as simple and spam free as possible. I have a few hundred competitions already listed (mostly UK at the moment) and want to add more features for filtering out / reporting the bad ones.
Let me know what you all think – I have some ideas for rating the destination listings so you can see before you click if they require email addresses, payment, show ads etc.
On your website it says:
In your email app, set up your name, address and phone number as an email signature so it’s automatically added to your entries.
I have searched the web for the procedure required to set up an email signature using office 365 and outlook as my email client. However I have only found really complicated procedures.
Is there an easy way to set up an email signature?
This is a good guide Michael! It might look a bit complicated, but really all you need to do is type out your name and address, save the signature and then assign it to your email address as a default signature to appear on every email!
Glad I have read this I do take a brake choice golf Bella grazia if I read correctly they are safe only been doing the comps for about 4weeks and won a prize
Hi, I am new to this. Can yo still organise on the MSE the comps by end date as I cant see how you do it.
Hi am new comper and this information is really helpful thank you
Ive seen this one that looks promising https://www.pinnaclecompetitions.co.uk/product/apple-imac-2017-21-5-inch/
That is a £5 to enter raffle.
This site is great
hi there, lv just joined compers news and its all very intresting lv been with simply prizes for many years
and lv never won any thing and coffee break never won there at all compers news appears to be more
Compers news is brilliant I joined last September, I won £100 for sending in a photo as had to recreate old advert in the mag and then I won again £200 for another they are doing the Bucket list photo comp at moment these are fun to enter Good luck x
Great blog and information on competition websites! I’ve just received a letter from National Competition & Survey Entrants Register and wondered what on Earth that is… But thanks to your blog I’ve seen, some of your readers have got it too and I could also see your advise! Will definitely send them an envelope – no point wasting money on calls or texts if chance of winning is small…
Hi Daromila! I’ve had a few people ask about the NC&SER so I’ve posted separately about this, including details of how to opt out from further communication: https://superlucky.me/national-competition-survey-entrants-register-is-it-a-scam/
Does any one know any thing about, National competition and survey entrants register. wondering if this is a con, thanks.
A few people have received this letter today Carol – please don’t make an expensive phone call! The chance of winning a prize is very small, and if you want to find out if you’ve won, you can send your letter by post (including a Stamped Self Addressed envelope) to the address printed on it – the cost of a couple of second class stamps rather than an expensive text or phone call. To be honest though, I would simply throw it into the recycling bin! You can find out more at https://superlucky.me/national-competition-survey-entrants-register-is-it-a-scam/
Hello, interesting article.
We are looking to promote our competition further afield but are having a problem finding people that do this. Are there people that specialise in promoting competitions? We do have a free entry route or they can pay £5 for an entry – the prize is a 45 room castle in SW Scotland. No strings, furnished,
People seem to think the competition is too good to be true as we are also offering cash if the castle cant be taken up for some reason and donating the profits to animal and children charities.
Any comments gratefully received.
You could contact email@example.com as they now include a ‘win a house’ section in Compers News magazine each month. To be honest though, this type of competition isn’t really popular with my readers – as you say, it sounds too good (or more like, too ridiculous!) to be true, and the hassle and costs involved if you win probably puts people off entering! Who on earth would want to own a castle? A terraced house in Birmingham would probably get more entrants! I’ve been thinking of listing the free entry routes on SuperLucky – but of course, the promoters need people to buy entries so that wouldn’t help you at all! I did recently receive a press release for a similar promotion, on how it was a great way for broke young people to get their first home! Perhaps a press release about owning your own castle might help sell some tickets?
I have recently come across the following website https://www.competitions-time.co.uk/ and was wondering if it was a safe one?!
Thank you 🙂
Ah okay, thank you for letting me know. This is a brilliant page.
Hey do you know the site Winnersville? Is it safe? Is it completely free?
It’s free and safe BUT in order to enter a prize draw you do need to agree to receive emails from Prize Reactor, Big Lotto and Scottish Power so you’ll get lots of spam – I would avoid!
Ok thank you
Do you have any views on About All In London? They ask people to email them for a copy of the T & C’s which seems a bit strange.
They have some general competition T&Cs here – https://www.allinlondon.co.uk/terms_competitions.php – but there should always be extra terms for specific prizes!
Thanks for replying so quickly. They seem fairly standard from a quick skim but I think they should be linked from competitions.
whats your opinion on http://www.psydro.com/competiton
They seem good to me i have checked them out but would like your opinion
Psydro looks fine to me, although I wouldn’t call it a competiton site – it’s a review site, and the reviews are incentivised with a few prize draws. Your details are safe with them!
Do you know anything about http://www.snizl.com? It doesn’t seem to have any purpose but to get people’s details but I have not seen it before today.
Scamadviser says it is ok – but they also think UKPrizes is ok so I don’t think they are much of a guide to data mining.
I think Snizl looks ok – it’s based on affiliate links to offers and discounts so that’s how they make their money, rather than selling on your details. The comps just look like a little extra on top.
Thanks. I’m always a bit wary if I can’t see why they are putting up competitions but that seems ok.
This site is great
Very interesting article, Di, thank you. I found a site called http://www.tomorro.com which I suspect is also one to avoid as it appears to be based in Australia so must have huge numbers of entries. There are big prizes like cars and may well be genuine but the odds are against you. I did most of my successful comping in the 1990’s before we all had the Internet and it seemed more fun then.
Yes – it does say by entering you’ll join their mailing list, but also partner lists and also get great offers and promotions (ie. spam from everyone!). The draw I just looked at is open for a whole year too, and open to countries all over the world.
Hi Di would you recommend ‘luckyoldme.co.uk’?
Thanks 🙂 xx
Just had a look and it’s similar to MyOffers, etc in that your details are passed to many companies including Scottish Power, Prize Reactor & Fix My Finances who will bombard you with calls and spam. I’ll add to the ‘avoid!’ list above.
Whoops! I’ll avoid in the future. It explains the nonsense emails I’ve got now.
Just joined PrizeDeck and entered all the prize draws. Well worth it and thanks for your advice.
Good luck Carolyn! PrizeDeck do a great job of publishing winners names at http://prizedeck.com/winner/. so I hope to see yours there soon!
Thank you Di. I will let you know when I win something.
thankyou for writing this blog very helpful x
Hi, i was wondering if you could add us to your list we are 3Bees Club you can find us at http://www.3beesclub.com we are a new giveaway site, we do not spam your inbox and we do not sell your details on we actually give products all we ask is you share the competitions on social media and watch a short 30 sec video from the giveaway sponsor, we are finding it very hard to get our name out there and need help to tell people we are one of the good guys, we do not charge to enter our site or our competitions, the more people we can get to sign up to our site the better our competitions will be.
Thanks for the comment and link, but as a comper I would consider this format to be a huge waste of time – after all, that’s 30 seconds that could be spent entering comps elsewhere! It just doesn’t make much sense to me…
Hi, Thanks for the reply however the 30 second video is from the competition sponsors, I understand what you are saying, that you could be entering more competitions however I thought the point of your article was to mention which giveaway sites were legit and as you can see if you look at our site or our Facebook page we have real winners that are picked completely at random and fantastic prizes, surely that is what everyone entering competitions is looking for.
So glad you have warned people about “GetMeATicket” – they bombarded me with emails. I got 100 a day for about a week. All at different times of the day. I asked them to stop and even threatened them with legal action after the 10th time of asking! They said they weren’t sending any more but then sent 5 in 2 days. Even denied sending them until I offered to forward the emails back to them. Have had 1 in 3 years now.
hi is this company okay the Coffee Break Winner.?
You have to pay £69 a year to use Coffee Break Winner – it’s not worth it. The information can be found elsewhere for free. I also don;t appreciate that they use my name in their marketing, suggesting I approve of the service (which I don’t!)
thank you Di
There’s a completely free to enter prize draw to win 2 Ed Sheeran Tickets plus hotel and £100 spending money at http://comms.unionbenefits.co.uk/nhs-dental-plan-free-prize-draw-win-ed-sheeran-tickets There is no purchase necessary, you only need to leave your email and I know for a fact that there have (so far) been less than 1,000 entries as of now…
http://www.winningmomentsonline.co.uk and there facebook page https://www.facebook.com/winningmomentsuk are a trustyworthy competition company with lots of giveaways, freebies and competitions 🙂
Yes, Winning Moments is trustworthy – and lots of good comps too!
Thanks a lot Di this is super useful. As a new comper I was starting to feel whether it’s worth it or not because of the spam and endless repetitive filling in of personal infor and being redirected to lots of comp websites. This now gives me new direction.
Have you checked out Free Emoji Lottery? http://emojilottery.co.uk/
http://www.competwition.com seems to be down.
I’ve launched a new site for people interested in competitions. http://www.theprizehub.com. I’m adding competitions now but please sign up and add any you know of, or browse what we have so far. Mostly aimed at the UK for now but hope to expand later. It also includes a badge system, so the more you help share the site and submit competitions, the more badges you can unlock. Would love to know your thoughts on it.
I am trying to get my new website http://www.uploadandwin.com to grow in popularity. Its like a social network but everytime you upload a photo you are entered into the free prize draw which is drawn Sunday at 9pm GMT
Hi Johnathon, how have you got on with raising your websites profile? I am looking to do the same for Theprizehub.com. From what I’ve seen so far Twitter is the best place to get competition based sites out there provided you keep posting periodically. Perhaps you might look at hosting some mini prizes leading up to every Sunday draw, but only via Twitter so people would know to follow you for the random mini prizes but would then be constantly reminded about the main prize draw on Sundays?
All in good time James. Eventually I do intend on having multiple prizes through the week. With regards to Twitter I can’t say I’m an expert at marketing on that site. I tend to focus more on SEO for google and search engines. Its always the same though, so many ideas nowhere near enough time.
Yep it is quite time consuming. I’m still waiting to get properly listed on search engines. I’ve set up Facebook and Google+ pages too but it’s difficult to focus on everything at once. Good luck with it all anyway, sounds like an interesting site.
Good advice .thanks.
Fantastic resources, thanks
Excellent advice as always Di. I’ve been following this advice since I started comping in September and it has been invaluable!
My name is Petr, I am the owner of RevPlaza.com – an online competitions directory. Just wonder if you could add RevPlaza to your list.
I have spent 6 months of full time coding to develop some features which I believe makes entering the online competitions more organized and more funny. For example, there is a loyalty program where users earn credits which can be converted in additional entries for premium competitions. To enjoy more fun, there are users rankings (national rankings and world ranking). And of course, there are tools which help to the users to enter the competitions just in time. RevPlaza uses an intelligent system which displays the competitions only when the user can enter it. This way the RevPlaza members can avoid to be disqualified for entering the competition more frequently then allowed by the rules.
Well, there are also many other features which I believe are very useful for the users so I would appreciate if you look at RevPlaza and consider to add it to your list. Thanks!
Hi Petr, thanks for the comment! It looks to me like you only have one contest that’s open to UK entries at the moment? If you expand to include more then I’ll certainly consider including Revplaza! Thankyou.
Thanks for this. I’ve always wondered about MyOffers and Get Me a Ticket. This is a very useful blog post.
Thanks Di,I am in-indated with loads of spam stuff.Trouble is nowhere on the e-mails is there an’unsubscribe’ &i am frightened to click on the x boxes.I have just got my sister interested in comping & now she’s saying she as never had so much rubbish & not winning she is thinking of packing it in.
thanks so much for this; as a fairly new comper I have been overwhelmed by who or what! to spend my time on….. btw CompersNews is awesome!
