Purchase-necessary promotions: just one receipt, or one receipt per entry?

    It’s the wee things, I was taking pictures of my receipt and then pics of the product but never together!! no idea why that never crossed my mind lol, so now when I put shopping away I always take pic of both together so it’s easier to find on camera roll!

    This is a really good article. I hadn’t realised that some have 100’s of sim cards to enter comps. Goodness me, thats not fair on genuine compers. I am currently doing the Captain Cadburys twice daily comp and just have the original receipt and pack for the codes.
    I have never been asked for a receipt for a purchase necessary competition win.
    I hardly do any comps now, just the odd local one, and anything that I normally buy thats got a comp on the pack.

    Hi Di, this is a brilliant article, thank you. It is so easy to be a bit bewildered with all the purchase necessary competitions around at the moment. I’ve made myself a list of the ones I’m entering, frequency, codes, competition end dates etc. I’m still going with maybe some of the “older” ones too, i.e. the Budweiser Premier League comp for shirts and Philips PerfectDraft Beer Dispensers with Budweiser Kegs, which my Husband has won one of, which was brilliant. I’m also still doing the Cadburys match and win for the £500 draw. People who don’t understand comping say I’m “obsessed” but I try to explain you have to be persistent and enter competitions regularly to stand a chance of winning. I am, however, shocked to hear that “there are a few compers out there using 100s of SIM cards to enter keyword text comps and claiming multiple prizes for themselves and their family members!” Something like that would never occur to me, nor would I want to do that either.

      It can be well worth persevering with the long running purchase comps, particularly if you hold onto your codes for winning moments, when the flashed packs might be long gone from the shelves! I’ve heard of lots of winners in ‘wrap up’ late entry draws too. Good luck Kelley!
