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!

    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!

    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.
