    Pringles Take A Bite Win A Flight was amazing. My husband won first, then I won, then my daughter won and my son who refused to take part decided if we had all won he’d have a go, and he won too! Booking was super easy and Cloud Nine were amazing, getting us all sat together on the same flight. Because of the free flights, we were able to have our first family beach holiday abroad and had an amazing week in FuerteVentura

    I won a nutribullet with belvita. I love when comps are open to ROI residents too as there are so many closed to me. Well done on all your wins guys, here’s to a lucky 2019.

    I won in the Pepsi/Dorito, nutribullet and the bonne maman flask comp, can’t complain!

    Four. Did best on Carabao, a total of £435 and about £350 of that profit, won 5 x £5 on Doritos plus loads of crisps but we have printer problems, wish they would send a code to the phone, my husband won £57 on Heinz, and I only won once on Freddo but we went to Go Ape at Dalby Forest – tho my 2 said it was a mighty long journey and they’d prefer Matfen next time. We had to go there because it was a Junior Go Ape experience and Matfen doesn’t have one. Still, they had fun when we got there.
    Don’t think i entered the others except for the Auto Trader car comp.

    Congratulations to all who won. It just shows that these types of purchase necessary comps can be very lucrative.
    I don’t enter many, mainly because living in a small town in rural Northern Ireland most promotional items don’t appear in shops sometimes for months after the promotion begins.

      Do you look for the NI ‘No Purchase Necessary’ route in the T&Cs Vanessa? Quite a few of my readers have won with that – particularly for the more expensive qualifying products!

      • Vanessa F says:

        Always.
        I had great luck in the recent VISA Great British High Street comp, winning 4 x £100 prepaid VISA cards, all through NPN entries.

  6. Anna Lord says:

    I didn’t realise the Pepsi codes for the Perfect Match codes weren’t unique! Was this clear in the ts & cs?

    • Di says:

      It wasn’t clear in the T&Cs – and there have been several similar competitions this year. T&Cs suggest that ‘batch codes’ are unique, but of course it’s a ‘batch’ of products that get printed with the same time code so they’re not unique!

  7. Mr George Williams says:

    I won £57 with Heinz, and had a huge pile of Doritos in the cupboard by the end of their competition.
    Would loved to have won (but didn’t) the Carabao competition, having entered at different times of the day and night!

  8. Rebecca Beesley says:

    Love this round up. To be honest, I don’t really do many purchase necessary comps unless it’s a food product I’m going to need/eat anyway – might look out for a few more in 2019. Missed the pringles one altogether so did an entry into the wrap up draw for that – although didn’t win. The Ribena one was also good this year – by entering late each night we did end up with lots of coupons for those ready-to-drink ribena bottles.

  9. Kellie McIntyre says:

    Won 2 x Pringles flights, 2 x Heinz £57, bowls/glasses a plenty, Freddo – 3 x trampoline experiences, a nutribullet, mountains of doritos and ended up £50 up on Carabao -can’t complain! 7/10

  10. Debi Gillard says:

    I have never bought things just to enter comps. I entered the pepsi / doritas a few times (using codes from the net) and won 2 or 3 small prizes. I invested in 2 Freddo bars right at the end of the promotion and won twice. I might try a few more next year but certainly not going to spend loads in the hopes of winning. Good luck all.

  11. Sandra Clarke says:

    I won on four of these comps – the best being Doritos where my family netted £2000! Plus of course loads of free bags – all our visitors went away with a bag full of Doritos! The Kelloggs Elf on the Shelf was a good one too – there must be loads of happy children with one of the lovely boxes of goodies.

  12. Kevin says:

    never won any Oh well heres to a better 2019

  13. Clare says:

    I only won on the Doritos pepsi comp. I have a cupboard full of glasses and bowls lol.

  14. Derek Wilson says:

    I won 5 out of those 10 comps – not bad going!
