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 text 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!

    Hi is the skittles Poundland competition definitely legit or a scam ? As I win £500 but it asks for my bank details so worried it could be a scam

    • Di says:

      This is absolutely fine Lisa – it’s how they pay winners.! Congratulations. There’s no danger at all in giving your sort code and account number, because the only thing they can be used for is for someone to pay you money – it’s your card details you should never give out.

      • Lisa says:

        Very strange as they emailed me and offered to send a cheque as I raised it with skittles promotion if it was legit to give bank details.after you confirmed it was safe I sent my bank details to them instead of say ok to a cheque they are saying someone with a different name has given bank details and my email and they are the winner not me and have to pay them out …so one way or another I don’t feel skittles are running this comp correctly. I replied to them from the email I used when I won and sent a screenshot
        showing the instant message showing I had won . So not really happy about this

        • Di says:

          This sounds very strange – does your email have your name in it, a name that matches your bank account details?

  2. Lesley W says:


    The link for the Coca Cola Marvel Avengers goes to the Republic of Ireland t&c ‘s and not the UK.

  3. Charlotte says:

    Hi Di, it looks like for the J&J Amazon voucher competition they are giving away 100 x £10 vouchers rather than £50 vouchers

  4. Paula langdon says:

    The problem with the Guinness jumper one not rotating was because my phone wasn’t set to auto rotate in the settings, once it’s set to auto rotate I got it to rotate, didn’t win though but at least it worked

  5. Louise says:

    Just won a Guinness jumper woop!

    • KelleyP says:

      Well done, no wins for a jumper here but entered into the mop up draw if any left over.

      • KelleyP says:

        Thank you for updating this amazing post Di, I’m happy to report a win on the Fibre One competition this morning, I’m really keeping fingers crossed for Man City tickets on the Cadbury’s promotion.

          • KelleyP says:

            Another win here Di, in the Walkers competition. I couldn’t believe it when I saw a congratulations screen. It was at 9.30am today. The good thing about the Walkers comp is it’s limited between 6am to 12 midnight (so no having to enter in the early hours) and as it’s one prize per household, once you’ve won it, you can give up!!

          • Di says:

            I’m dreaming of the day I can give up trying, LOL! Congrats Kelley!!

  6. jodie says:

    Anybody else still waiting for a Brioche Pasquier Minions prize? I won a minions bag & water bottle through a twitter comp end of July. Got the water bottle in Sept but still waiting on the backpack.

    • Di says:

      One of my Minions prizes took 6 weeks to arrive after it was posted, because my sorting office had a month’s backlog of parcels – it might be worth popping into your local delivery office incase it’s still there!

  7. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi, I won a Coca Cola branded football on the Coca Cola app, but I must have missed the email from them telling me how to claim because it has been well over the 7 days. Does anyone know the address of the email I should search for? Thanks.

    • Di says:

      It came from but there was only 6 days to claim I’m afraid! Remember to set rules in your email inbox so any email containing CONGRATULATIONS is flagged up or changed to a colour, then you’ll never miss one!

      • Hazel Lemar says:

        Thank you Di, I took my eye off the ball for this one!

      • Hazel Lemar says:

        Good news Di, I emailed Coca Cola saying that I had searched for the email but couldn’t find it, which I couldn’t. They checked and said that my email had bounced and if I sent them an alternative email address they would send it again, which they now have!

    • Deborah says:

      I found the email in my spam.

  8. SusieT says:

    Still waiting for my Brewdog t shirt. I emailed and confirmed my win. They said sending out in batches last week. Still not received. Maybe postal strikes not helping. Anyone received prizes?

  9. Hazel Lemar says:

    Is anyone getting a Brewdog Access All Areas error message when trying to access the entry page? I sometimes get this message for days on end: “Application error: a client-side exception has occurred (see the browser console for more information”

  10. Tina says:

    I have the same issue with the Listerine competition I am not getting the verification code

  11. Gemma says:

    Anyone else having trouble with the Listerine competition, it doesn’t send the verification code to my email.

  12. Satvinder Billa says:

    I won a Madri, text to win chopping board. Sent them my details but never heard back anyone else enter this text to win comp and received there prize?

  13. Karen T says:

    Unfortunately the date for the Savers/ Lenor competition is wrong. It actually ended on 27th September at 23.59. I just tried to enter and can’t.

  14. Hayley Streeter says:

    Just like to say thanks for such a great website. So far I have won £30 with Snickers, a glass with Brewdog, bottle of 7up & free takeaway and a cricket bat and ball!

  15. Dave says:

    I won £30 on the Snickers/Poundland competition. Thanks Di for listing it.

  16. Jo says:

    Sent a text entry to Wrigleys gum and it replied saying the comp closed in March 2022

  17. Hannah Flynn says:

    Hi, is the Wrigleys comp purchase necessary? Thanks

  18. Miss Jayne Sullivan says:

    Are you aware that the Pink Lady competition has closed a month early ?

  19. Courtney Clarke says:

    Hi! I’ve bought a bottle of Echo Falls and really want to enter but I didn’t actually get a receipt. Do you know if they ask for this if you win?

  20. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di, I wondered if you had heard of anyone having a problem uploading a photo for the non- Instagram entry for the Doritos promotion? On several occasions the site hasn’t uploaded the Image I have chosen and added from my phone photos. I know this because when it says ‘Thank You For Sharing….’ , the incorrect image is shown below this. So my holiday pictures and friends faces appear! Is this a glitch?

    • Lyn Shephard says:

      Hi, I have been uploading my pic everyday as I don’t have Instagram and mind still isn’t shown in the gallery so I also don’t really know what’s going on? I also do it with mentos and my pic doesn’t appear in the gallery so I’m not sure if I’m wasting my time with that one too. Wish you luck!

    • Di says:

      I’ve not heard of this problem Hazel! What I’ve done is moved all my Doritos photos into an album called ‘Doritos’ on my iphone – could you try this? Then you can navigate to the Doritos album when you upload, and there shouldn’t be any other image options to be uploaded by mistake!

      • Hazel Lemar says:

        Thank you for the suggestion Di, it would indeed solve the problem. And a great tip for future competitions.

  21. Sheila says:

    Just entered the Magners comp and won a Amazon dot.
    Thank you Di

  22. Martin says:

    I always winning loads through this website. My latest prizes are a Bacardi cocktail kit and a Coca Cola euro 2020 beach towel

  23. Hazel Lemar says:

    Hi Di, I don’t know about you, but me and my husband have been entering the Mars Win2gether every day, and win a free pack and one for a mate 2 or 3 times a week, so that’s quite a lot between us when we are each other’s mates. However some retailers have a problem knowing how to apply the printed out voucher to redeem against the cost of the packs, and particularly my local small Co-Op which finally the other day told me that they are not accepting them anymore because of fraud. I think that they are making that bit up because they are sceptical of my mono printed vouchers which I am presenting several times a week (with unique codes by the way). Very frustrating. Luckily the bigger supermarkets have no such problems.

    • Di says:

      I’ve not had any retailers refuse them yet, however I do visit a lot of different shops and have never had the same person serve me twice as there are so many temporary young staff at my local Co-ops! I can understand that it puts a lot of winners off redeeming them though, often it makes us feel guilty and as if we’re up to something dodgy which of course isn’t the case!

      • Deb Pettit says:

        My local co op employee didnt know what to do so called the Manager who refused to let me have the offer of 2 for £1.00 and use the voucher. She charged me 75 p each.

      • Suki says:

        My local Esso refused the coupon

  24. Lyn Shephard says:

    Is anyone having problems texting the competitions to the 60163 number? Up until a few weeks ago I was able to text and always received bounce backs but the last few texts no bouncbacks but always ok with other text numbers? Really don’t know what’s going on?!

  25. Gerry Latawiec says:

    Hi I came to just find a link to the wagon wheels comp as nothing seems to get there. However, I entered the Magnets comp and won a Bluetooth speaker – much better than a subscription to a Top Gear mag. Thankyou very much! Can you accidentally point me to a new car comp?

  26. Priscilla Stubbs says:

    Phone call this morning to say I have won £50 in the Mars & Poundland text to win comp. Thanks for letting us know about this

  27. Fiona Cullen says:

    Thanks for the great tips Di,have just won a year’s supply of Mcvities biscuits after buying them last week-good job I kept the receipt!!

  28. Deb Pettit says:

    Thankyou, this gave me the confidence to enter the text comps. Always been scared to because I didnt know the cost and thought i might get bombarded with texts which I have to pay for.

  29. ALYSON SMITH says:

    Hi, I’ve just tried to enter the Mars WINCASH text comp but the text won’t send. My husband tried too but same thing. Has anyone else had any problems please? Thanks!

  30. Hi Di,
    do you think it is still worth entering postcard comps due to COVID etc

    • Di says:

      For the big PO Box draws, definitely. I’m sure the big Handling Houses have processes in place and handle all mail with gloves! If it was a problem, then they would have to make this clear in the T&Cs or temporarily pause postal entries. The main concern is the amount of time Royal Mail is taking to get post to its destination though – so you’ll need to allow more time!

  31. Paul O'Malley says:

    Just won £50 on the Uncle Ben’s red envelope. Thankyou for sharing it

  32. Annalisa Dunham says:

    Can you enter the standard version and co-op version of the Malteser bunny competition each week or just one of them? Thanks.

  33. Stella Holvey says:

    Just won a free 250g pouch of Uncle Ben’s thanks Di

  34. Lorna-Jane Holland says:

    I’ve just won £20 with Uncle Ben’s – thanks Di!

  35. Think everybody’s overloaded the Nectar Points spin & win – both links give a 502 Proxy error & other bits of the site our broken.

  36. Aggie says:

    Hi Di, thank you for your website, I entered Liverpool FC competition last month and today I just received my prize ,it was a football kit for my son, we couldn’t believed it !

  37. Hi Di,
    I’m new to this but I’ve seen a text comp in The Sun to win an electric Corsa.
    Is this worth entering? Texts cost £2

    • Di says:

      Personally I wouldn’t enter by text – it’s widely advertised and is likely to get well over 100,000 entries! If you check the details there’s other entry options – you can also enter by collecting seven Sun Savers codes between 12 & 24 October, and entering them on the Sun Savers website or app (check Money Saving Expert as it’s likely a member may share the codes on a comping forum!)

      You could send a postcard too, which would save you a bit of money as you’d only need to buy a second class stamp! It’s always worth checking if there’s a cheaper option for premium rate text competitions, like this one or the ITV ones. “Enter by post by sending your name and contact number to SUN VAUXHALL COMPETITION, P.O. Box 4445, Colchester, CO2 8GD. Max one postal entry. “

  38. Enkeleda Kamxhiu says:

    Thank you

  39. Karen says:

    Hello! I have entered the perfect match competition for many days now but I still haven’t won 🙁 do you have any tips that could give me some luck. Thanks.

    • Di says:

      I’ve entered every day since it began, at all hours of the day and still haven’t won a prize! Although many of my readers have won all 4 prizes – a TV, soundbar, bean bag AND a snack pack! Unfortunately we just have to keep plugging away. If there’s another household member, get them to enter daily too so you can double your chances. Unfortunately we only have a few days left of this one!

      • Martin garrod says:

        Won a bean bag with Pepsi. 100 pounds with break from bills with Kit Kat. And last year with kp crisps won the top price on lunch at another level which I’m still due to take as it’s been out on hold due to Covid. Going to New York. As well as loads of resturant vouchers. Love these free comps their exciting 🙂

  40. James says:

    Hi Di, love the tips on competitions, i won a tv with the Pepsi comp! I entered at 5am and couldn’t believe i won,
    Good luck everyone, stay safe and keep entering!

  41. Nicola France says:

    Hi, just wondering if the B.O.B Milk competition is a daily entry or once only draw, Thank you

  42. Lidiya says:

    They only announced two winners for the Roddas Competition this week? I thought it was 3 winners every week.

  43. helena denton says:


  44. Katerina says:

    How do you calculate the exact number of your bills. You include mortgage, electricity, water and internet?

  45. James Turner says:

    Hey Di,
    Just to let you know that the Tesco comp ended yesterday.

  46. Catherine Wressell says:


  47. Have you seen the Hairbo 25 years of star mix competition starts 3rd Feb it is one when you have a code on the sweet packet that takes you through to an entry form. Cant find much on the terms and conditions but looks like a lot of prizes this ink give some info

    • Di says:

      Yes! I picked up a few bags yesterday (much to my son’s delight) and will be posting about it soon!

  48. Liz Whitney says:

    Thank you so much Di, I’ve just seen this in time to enter the Asda Innovations Awards comp. Also the Walkers/Tesco one, a nice lot of prizes for these two. Fingers crossed.

  49. Debbie Miller says:

    Thank you.. I am a bit worried about following so many new companies on Twitter at once.. don’t want to receive a ban.. (M&S hamper) ..

  50. Sam says:

    M&S hampers comp completed

  51. Heather Cain says:

    Thank you. Will take a look

  52. Frances Heaton says:

    Thanks Di, have done a couple of the comps, just need purchases for the others.

  53. Mel says:

    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.
