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!


Standard rate text entry prize draw – ends 22.10.19
To enter, text MUCHOS followed by a space, the last 4 digits of the pack barcode and your name to 60070 (one entry per person per day)

There’s 100 prizes of a £50 Chiquito voucher to be won in this text prize draw advertised in the Co-op magazine. Buy a 180g bag of McCoys Muchos Smoky Chilli Chicken or Muchos Nacho Cheese at a Co-op and keep hold of your receipt, then text your entry. The text is standard rate (usually costing between 8p and 10p – although sometimes they may be included in your free allowance!). 
Tip: take a photo of your receipt and store in a ‘receipts’ album on your phone – then if you’re asked to show it to validate your win, you can quickly access it!

Tip: take a photo of your receipt, as well as keeping it in a safe place – winners are usually asked to send a photo rather than the original receipt.

    How many times can you enter the swizzels competition?

    • Di says:

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

      • Melanie Walker says:

        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.
