Top 5 competitions to enter right now!

It’s easy to enter competitions – but of course, it’s much harder to win them!  But knowing the right type of comps to enter will give you a better chance of a prize.

This blog post will be kept up to date with current prize draws or competitions where I believe you have a great chance of winning a prize. These are likely to be creative, purchase-necessary or comps with a LOT of smaller prizes – and I’ll try to include a range of different types of prize promotions, so you can start learning which ones are the best to have a go at!

Good luck – let me know if you win any of my top competitions!

Magic Pays Your Bills

The winner is called after 4pm – you have to answer within 5 rings and give the correct cash amount to win it!

    • Di says:

      I’ve asked them and they replied ‘as many times as you like!’ – good luck!

        Brill thank you for checking. I take it they didn’t say that you was limited to one a day like the pringles one?

        • Di says:

          They didn’t say, Melanie – just ‘as many times as you like’ – I think if it was random winners then they would put a limit on entries.
