Macfarlane Packaging Unboxing Survey 2022 – win five fabulous prizes!

This post has been sponsored by Macfarlane Packaging.

If there’s anyone out there who loves unboxing as much as I do, it must be Macfarlane Packaging! Macfarlane is the UK’s leading packaging distributor and they’re on a mission to ensure your online shopping ends with a good unboxing experience.

Macfarlane Packaging host an annual packaging survey, inviting people to share their good and bad experiences of unboxing their online buys. This year five lucky survey respondents will win prizes, including a £250 One4All Shopping voucher and an Apple Watch.

I’m sure most SuperLucky readers know that my son Ry and I do a lot of unboxing – and I receive an awful lot of non-recyclable packaging in those parcels! From huge cardboard boxes filled with bubble wrap, to the t-shirts wrapped in multiple layers of packaging. Much as I love to open a surprise parcel, some of the deliveries I receive simply aren’t sustainably packed at all.

The Macfarlane Unboxing Survey is designed to get an idea of the type of packaging people receive in the post when they make online purchases, and how efficient and environmentally friendly it is. In previous years the survey has revealed that people want to receive their purchases in packaging that’s easy to open, easy to return and kind to the environment – so ideally it should be fully recyclable. Personally, I’ve noticed a lot of retailers have switched from plastic bags and padded envelopes to cardboard or paper packaging lately.

The prizes on offer

This year there are five fabulous prizes up for grabs – winners will be selected at random from everyone who completes the Unboxing Survey.

  • £250 One4All Shopping voucher (or you can donate all or a portion of this to a charity of your choice)
  • Apple Watch Series 3 worth £179
  • £100 Spabreaks.com Gift Card
  • The Sustainable Foodie Gift Box from Social Stories worth £46
  • £30 Love2Shop voucher

How to enter the prize draw

In order to enter the prize draw, you will need to choose one recent parcel you have received, take a photo of the packaging and then complete the survey questions about the parcel and its packaging.

Note that items from auction sites (eBay etc.) or Amazon are not valid – and competition prizes are only valid if they’ve been sent directly from a retailer, rather than a fulfilment or marketing agency. So for example, I recently won a BOSE speaker that was ordered by NDL directly from John Lewis, so that would be a valid item.

  • Complete the Unboxing Survey here – you will need details of what you bought, where you bought it from, and details of how it was packaged
  • At the end of the survey, upload a photo of the packaging
  • Add your name and email address, and submit!

Make sure you get your entry in by 21 August 2022 – you can enter multiple times, completing a new survey for each package you receive (as long as it’s from a different retailer). Each new survey and photo completed is another entry into the prize draw.

The prize draw is open to all UK residents aged 18 and above.

Below is a parcel I received recently which is ideal to use for the survey – festoon lights ordered from Currys. There’s minimal bubble packaging inside, but I didn’t like the vast amounts of plastic tape used to seal the box!

    Can we enter as many times as we like and also do we need to show just the outer packaging in the pictures or the items as well? Thanks!

      Yes you can enter multiple times with different parcels. Your photo should show the packaging, but depends on what it actually is. My parcel had so much tape on it, that was the photo I uploaded rather than showing the small amount of plastic packaging inside.
