My top ten prizes

One of the questions I’m always asked in interviews is ‘What’s the best prize you’ve won?’ – and I realised that although I have a list of my prizes, I’ve never actually written about my favourites here on the blog. So here you go – a list of Di’s top ten prizes, as refreshed for 2022!

1. VW Beetle

Back in 2002 I was a newbie to slogan comps, but loved a challenge. My mum had spotted an advert in Ideal Home magazine to win a VW Beetle: my dream car! But entry wasn’t easy; you had to buy a Zanussi washing machine and post off a copy of the receipt along with an entry form printed from their website, complete with a tiebreaker slogan. I pondered for a while and decided I couldn’t justify buying a new washer when my old one worked just fine. But then, a week before the competition closing date, my washer broke down. I hotfooted it to Currys and got a new one on interest free credit: I figured by the time I had to start paying for it, I would have sold my Fiesta and have a shiny new Beetle on my driveway. You know me – it’s all about positive thinking! The lead in for the slogan was:” I wash my clothes in a Zanussi because…”. My response was “from Winter woollies to skimpy underwear, Zanussi technology is programmed to care”. I always had a good feeling about this competition and even when the closing date and notification date had passed I still felt confident. Each night I dreamt of driving my prize Beetle and eventually on 10th January 2003 I got the winning telephone call to say I’d won!

2. £15,000 cash & £10,000 in Brewdog shares

My biggest cash prize was won in 2021 in a purchase-necessary prize draw at Tesco – although originally, the prize was a ‘solid gold’ beer can valued at £15,000 by Brewdog! However, when one of the winners had the can valued, it turned out it was gold-plated and worth a measly £500. After many complaints to the ASA, and my frustrated blog post, Brewdog finally offered each of the 28 gold can winners £15,000 cash for their prize cans. Not long afterwards, I received the other half of my prize – a certificate for £10,000 shares in Brewdog! It goes to show, if you don’t believe the prize you received was what was advertised, it can certainly pay to make a complaint…

3. ‘Lord of the Rings’ trip to New Zealand

This was a huge prize. To celebrate the cinema release of ‘Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’, Ottakars book shops launched a unique competition on their website. Every Friday for 4 weeks at noon a set of 3 literary riddles were published online; you had to note down the first letter of the answers. After publication of the final riddle, you had to work out the puzzle and phone your answer through to an answering machine. The first person to leave a message with the correct solution won the prize. With help from my boss at work we unscrambled the 12 letters to make BILBOS SWORD; we had deduced that one of the letters was a red herring! I phoned through the answer ‘Sting’, the name of his sword. This was about 30 minutes after the lines opened and I didn’t think I was in with a chance. But a few days later I had a call from Ottakars Head Office: I was indeed the first to get the exact answer. He told me most people had left the answer ‘Bilbo’s sword’ or even simply ‘Lord of the Rings!’. The holiday itself was amazing: a 3 week schedule taking in both North and South Islands, visiting film locations, with helicopter and biplane flights, wine tasting, hot springs and bungee jumping. And of course, there was the £1000 spending money, although I did give £500 of that to my boss Fraser who helped me solve the clues!

4. Signed Damien Hirst print

This unusual prize was won in a simple online entry web prize draw on the Observer website. The top prize was the original Damien Hirst skull painting, worth £250,000 – but I won the runners up prize of a signed print. It’s a real talking point for visitors and because I see it every day, it’s a great reminder of my brilliant hobby!

5. Family holiday to Florida

Many compers will fondly remember the ‘Faces for Florida’ competition which ran for four years on Heart FM. I was one of the winners in 2016, when you had to print off a face mask of Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton and then take a fun photo featuring the masks. I convinced Rob and Ryland to join me on Brighton beach on a snowy January morning for a photo shoot, and was super excited to get the winning phone call! My favourite holiday wins have definitely been where I’ve had to think creatively and do something a little bit out of the ordinary – or extreme comping as I like to call it!  Read about our trip to Florida here.

6. Luxury weekend in Milan

This was a real once-in-a-lifetime experience – a chance for my husband to play in a football tournament with Arsenal legends Robert Pires and Tony Adams at the San Siro stadium in Milan. This was a photo and caption competition on Indesit’s Facebook page with more than 30 winners from all over Europe, but unbelievably less than 400 entries! We stayed in a luxurious hotel in Milan, and while the men went to football training, the WAGs were treated to a £400 pair of shoes each, a makeover and cocktails. On the day of the tournament I also won the fun ‘best supporter’ competition and was rewarded with a signed Arsenal shirt which now hangs proudly in Ryland’s bedroom! Read about our trip to Milan here.

Prize trip to Milan

7. Ten day trip to Japan

Japan is on the wish lists of many compers, and back in 2002 I was lucky enough to win two trips there! It’s a particularly appealing destination for me because my best friend Jo emigrated there in the 1990s, so I’m always looking out for opportunities to go and visit. Both the Japan holidays were won from magazine prize draws, and I spent time crafting home-made Japanese themed postcards to enter. This prize, from Good Food magazine, included a week’s accommodation at the incredibly swish Four Seasons Tokyo followed by a 3 night stay in Kyoto, and various day trips too. We even had a business class upgrade on the plane. It was simply amazing and a real taste of the high life!

8. FA Cup Final Mascot package

It’s not strictly my win of course, but I helped my son Ryland to make a video entry for an  Emirates competition when he was 7 years old, and he won a place as a mascot for Arsenal at the FA Cup Final. This was an incredibly emotional experience – we dropped Ry off at Wembley and didn’t see him again until he walked out onto the pitch with Per Mertesacker (his favourite player at the time!). Arsenal were expected to lose to Chelsea, but Mertesacker scored the winning goal and it was a dream come true for Ry. As part of the prize we had a night in a hotel and bumped into Sol Campbell getting late night snacks in KFC  – the icing on the cake! Read about Ry’s day as a mascot here

9. Trip to the Brazilian Grand Prix

I spotted this competition on a bottle of Fernox F1 that my plumber had brought into the house; we were having drains fixed and a new boiler installed so we had plumbers at our house for weeks on end. To enter, you had to post off a Fernox cap with a slogan: I wrote “for Central heating in tip top condition, Fernox is always in pole position!”. There were 3 winners of a trip to the Sao Paulo Grand Prix. When I saw this competition I knew I would win it; we’d only just booked flights to Argentina for our honeymoon and when I checked the dates of the Grand Prix, it was right at the end of our trip so I knew if we won we could add it to the end of our holiday. My husband took the winning telephone call and couldn’t believe it – Fernox even gave us £1400 cash as we’d already paid for our flights! Although the competition itself was open to everyone, the other two winners were plumbers and it was so funny listening to them and the Fernox reps talking plumbing. Although Lewis Hamilton let us down on the day, being at a Grand Prix was a wonderful and thrilling end to our honeymoon!

10. A Butler for Glastonbury Festival

This extraordinary prize is the one people always want to hear about! This was a postcard entry competition in Q Magazine back in 2003, and the prize was a limo trip to Glastonbury, where my then-boyfriend Joey and I were greeted in the VIP area by our butler Wallace (who had even worked for the Royal Family!) and given backstage passes. Wallace looked after us all weekend, bringing us food, drinks and anything we wanted, and I even got to go up in the helicopter which takes the aerial shots of the festival site. This was a hilarious experience and when I talk about it, I’m reminded of why comping is such a magnificent hobby. Who else can say that they sat on their butler’s shoulders to watch the Flaming Lips play the Pyramid Stage?

Glastonbury Butler

Finally, I must give a special mention to the incredible Jet2 Party Plane prize – this was won by Kirsty in my Lucky Learners Facebook group back in 2019, and a hundred of us travelled to Majorca with Rylan for the best party weekend ever! Read all about it here.

I hope this post has been inspiring for you. I’ve been comping seriously (although I never feel ‘seriously’ is the right word!) for 25 years now, so I do have lots of amazing prizes to choose from, and you can see from my monthly prize unboxing videos on YouTube, the small ones can be just as delightful as the biggies! These ten favourite prizes have been won across  radio, phone, online, postcard, slogan, photography and video competitions. I like to give everything a go, and if you’re struggling to win competitions, maybe you could try something different too?

What’s your best prize so far?

I’d love to hear about YOUR best wins too. They don’t need to be biggies – and if you’re new to comping it’s fine to tell me about a small win too. Leave a comment below to let me know!

    I’m a bit late to the party, I know, but love reading about other people’s wins….I’ve been comping for over 20 years, my best win was £10,000, from “I can’t Believe it’s not butter”-a very hard spot-the difference comp, on a t.v ad for the product-there were 10 winners, and it allowed us to finally sell our house and move to a nicer area (we were stuck in negative equity nightmares, and living in a horrible place-this was a life-saver of a win for me, as I was getting very depressed). Another fab win was a £1000 holiday, back in the 1980’s-when £1000 meant something!-which was a competition in “Cosmopolitan” magazine, run by Mills and Boon-“What does Love Mean To You?”-I wrote a humourous poem, and could not believe I won first prize. Another holiday win was a week in Mauritius, in a very swanky private villa, courtesy of a very easy phone in comp in a newspaper-my partner’s mum died just a day after we got there, so we had to turn round and go straight back home…!!!…but the company let us take the holiday the following year, which was kind of them. Afternoon tea at the Savoy, with £100 travel money thrown in, was another lovely prize, no idea how I won that…’s a wonderful hobby!!

    • Di says:

      I can’t believe you won such a big prize in a spot the difference competition – how unusual! It’s always good to hear of compers who have stuck with the hobby – I love to hear about all the creative and skill comps from the 80s!

  2. anthony says:

    awesome post ! at last your top ten wins. that gold can was a good one ! I can’t believe it was only worth £500 ! what if no one had it valued? you’d have a £500 tin you thought was worth £10k lol .. always good to hear you made them put things right in the end.
    I had a prize that I found out was fake from years ago and they were stubborn and only offered me 20% of the value it was supposed to be … I didn’t know that the prize was fake for 5 years until I tried to sell it and a fan of the prize
    told me

    • Di says:

      Ah that’s such a pain! My football and memorabilia prizes have come with a certificate of authenticity, but I know a lot of prizes don’t!

      • anthony says:

        my prize came with a certificate, but that American company now is well known for fakes on Google . shame.

  3. Debbie says:

    I’ve been lucky since I was a wee girl. I’ve won hundreds of competitions! My biggest win was BA flights to New York in 2019 for being the highest fundraiser for Maggies Highlands – fundraising another passion of mine. We took our trip in Ecember 2019… just months before the world changed due to Covid.

    • Di says:

      I love New York! I’ve had 3 lovely visits there thanks to comping. That’s great news that you won it thanks to fundraising too – a win for you and a win for Maggies Highlands!

      • KelleyP says:

        What a fantastic inspirational article Di, thank you. I’ve only been comping since 2016 and whilst there are more people entering competitions, it’s still a fantastic hobby, as you get to do things you wouldn’t normally do or can only dream of. Also I agree with other comments that sometimes you know you’re going to win when you enter. My Best Win so far was a luxury 5 night trip to New York, 5 star accommodation, flights and transfers included, however, I won it in Feb 2020, you can guess the rest. There is a happy outcome however, as I have now been offered vouchers instead, which I’m happy with, as the Covid situation worldwide is still not clear. I also won a trip to Berlin which was also swapped for vouchers (still to spend). Other lovely wins have included a VIP trip to the Cirque Du Soleil, including an overnight hotel in London, train travel and transfers and an overnight stay and theatre trip locally and seeing England v Pakistan at Lords. I’ve won tickets to see Man City this year and because of our concerns re Covid we have been able to reschedule them from February to the last game of the season when they may possibly be presenting the Premier League trophy!!

  4. Lisa says:

    I love entering competitions and have won a fair few medium prizes which have been great. My best prize was 2 tickets to Chelsea Flower Show, a whole RHS collection of gardening tools, a complete Swan kitchen set, Viners cutlery, Comedy show tickets and loads of small things like fancy candles, makeup, wine and clothes!

  5. Nick Board says:

    I’ve had a few down the years, mostly photo ones. A Karmaan convertible 1974 VW Beetle,Bright red with Maynards Winegums decals, it certainly got noticed. Sunday Times/Faber Literary quiz £10,000 books. A Yamaha R1 in Virgin Racing Colours. Trips to USA,Thailand,Singapore,France,Italy,Turkey,Oman,Cuba.
    If some effort is required, it certainly cuts down the odds.
    Thank’s for your blog.

  10. Sharon stanley says:

    I’ve recently started comping (past 2 months) and am happy to say I have so far won a glamping trip to Sundown Festival, a PS4 game for my partner, a wooden plaque, some dolls accessories, some very posh chocolates, some hangover cure drinks, cinema tickets and I’m still going. Even if i don’t win big its lovely to enter the competitions and even started blogging reviewing everything I get to show others it is possible. It’s great to hear that you have done so well and definitely spurs me on to continue my hobby

  11. Jack Conroy says:

    I won a lot of prizes as a child. I tended to enter and win. The prizes were small. Which is why I probably won. That not many bothered entering. Stopped entering them as I grew up and got caught up with other things, jobs etc. Have recently started back comping.

  12. Gemma Thompson says:

    Wow love reading all your wins and what an amazing top ten! I’m a new comper this year and have had some great wins so far.. Holiday to Dubai, £1000, VIP trip to Wimbledon, hotel stay, Go Pro Camera and other smaller wins. It is definitely addictive 🙂 love checking in on your blog everyday for new tips and comps.. Thanks 🙂

  13. Awesome I love competitions too just our fforfree dt net where i have won hundreds of dollars in prizes

  14. Awesome!! I really enjoyed reading that. Its motivational to keep trying. When you have time can you extend it to top 50? Or top 10 quirkiest wins?

  15. emmasfabulous says:

    Some lovely prizes there, I love winning presents for others that they wouldn’t expect, my kids faces with their Christmas Xbox was so worth the effort of trying to win one!

  16. emmasfabulous says:

    Lovely read. That Toblerone vid! Effort wins do make that win feel extra special like your choices. love my fridge freezer from AO, I found the vid entry terrifying but it paid off. My second trip to Florida was won on a radio quiz. I was ridiculously nervous but like you wrote I had that feeling I would win, even when I was on hold I knew that I’d be picked. Mostly my fave wins are days out/trips for the memories, especially when I’ve set my mind to it. Already have a boat trip & Ideal Home tickets ready for Easter hols 🙂

    • Easter holidays! I need to look into some tickets for then too – Ideal Home Show should be fun!

      • emmasfabulous says:

        Looking forward to it, won Grand Designs couple of times but 1st time for Ideal Home, I suspect like you my favourite part is hunting for the comps at each stand 😉

  17. I love reading about your wins. This is a blog of my Courvoisier win – about three months after I started comping.

  18. Anna Birch says:

    Wow Di, what a great top ten!

  19. Stephen John King says:

    I,ve won some really amazing prizes over the last twenty or so years , including 3 cars, 3 trips to Australia, 2 cruises, 2
    x £5k cash , trips to world cups and a cuddly toy,……but 95% of them with slogan comps, which are now so very hard to find ,…..I recently won trip tp the Bahamas with Slimming world slogan comp ………………….and help with slogan comps running now would be greatly in 15 words or less………..”I should help Stephen find some slogan comps because”……..the prize on offer is a dinner date with myself *terms and conditions apply ….you must be single , female and aged between 55-65,……..and not boring!!!!

  20. Le Coin de Mel says:

    Oh my goodness Di, you’ve won some amazing prizes!!! All those trips, the fridge (so jealous), cash and even a car. That’s crazy! My best prize was a trip to the Rocky Mountains when I was 15. I won it on the radio 🙂

  21. Maria Vezenkova says:

    My dream prize is a trip to Legoland in Denmark and Disneyland. I also want to win a trip or vacation almost anywhere in Europe. Finland, Russia and Japan are also on the top of my list. Reading all these lucky winners’ stories motivate me to give my best in the next comp with trip prize.
    My biggest win was in February when I won the 1-at place in a vote contest. I also hate and usually don’t enter such type of comps. But this time I loved the prizes and all I had to do was just to show what’s inside my bag. I won the 1-st place and my prize was a beautiful watch + a bag.
    I’ve also won a photo contest by LCWaikiki. The 4 most creative photo captions about love should win £50 to spend in store. I wrote how thankful I am fom having my little boy and how happy his father and I are because he chose us for his parents.

    1. My entry for “Show me your bag” contest;
    2. My entry for LCWaikikiLove contest;
    3. My prize from “Show me your bag” contest.
    Today I won cinema tickets for a new Bulgarian movie premiere + cocktail afterparty passes. Sounds great and can’t wait for it.
    As I said before you’re a true inspiration to me, Di. Wish you all the best and keep going!

  22. Joanne Welsh says:

    I’ve not really had any BIG wins yet, nothing compared to what other people have gotten (no trips, appliances etc) but won some nice expensive bags and make up stuff that i’d never be able to afford to buy myself

  24. EMMA FURNISS says:

    Fabulous post, loved your toblerone video too 🙂 My best prize was a family holiday for 15 days to South Australia and Tasmania. It was from a sticker on a book and at one point they had over 10,000 entries. I was picked at random! We private tour guides, stayed in the outback and amazing acommodation and travel all in. They even flew us to Kangaroo Island for a couple of days. It must have cost around £20,000!

  25. Rianne De Gelder says:

    My favourite win is a 5 day VIP trip to the Bermuda Film Festival on the Bermuda Islands. We stayed at the most luxurious hotel I’d ever seen, received 500 euros spending money, could see the movies for free of course, and were invited to all the private parties where we could meet famous actors and directors. The competition was a random draw organized by one of the major Dutch radio stations. And despite the thousands of entries, I just knew I would win it. I even checked flight schedules and restaurant menus way before the winning phone call! I’m not necessarily a believer in the power of positive thinking, but sometimes you just know it…

    This win was ten years ago, and I doubt that any other prize will ever top this. But I know now that dreams can come true!

  26. Jessica Cook says:

    Last week I won one of my biggest prizes which is a 2 week cruise around the med, were going in june and cant wait, i’ve always wanted to see Italy! my other faves include my wedding photography, 9k raymond weil watches and a vip night at the classical brits, a forest holiday and a weekend in london to see peppa pig!!

    • emmasfabulous says:

      I won with Forest Holidays too some years back, they let me take it over Christmas it was wonderful. We pay to go now, I didn’t know it would be my type of holiday till we went. Very relaxing isn’t it x

  27. Sounds like you’re doing great Paul – sometimes you see a competition prize and you think ‘it HAS to be mine’ because the timing is perfect! Good luck with the Grand Prix!

  28. That’s fabulous Samantha – all those on blog giveaways? Wow!!

  29. Lucy robinson says:

    Mines got to be a holiday to Fort Myers in Florida with Take a Break Magazine. Came with £500, Everglades trip, theatre and dinner and a trip to a private island. Worth in total £5000.

  30. Elysia Benn says:

    This really spurs me on to try harder. They sound so fun!!!

  31. Caroline Blaza says:

    My favourite win was a day on set at Eastenders (I’m a huge fan) which I won last year via a BBC competition. Had a fab day and met so many of the cast. Got to take lots of pics and really was a fantastic day. Not sure how I am going to top that prize…..but it has made me realise any competition is possible to win.

  32. Tania J Nehme says:

    My favourite prize is a pair of Clodagh earrings my son won me from a local jewellers FB comp last year for Mother’s Day-he was 13 and obviously getting the comping bug! MY best win was a HD/3D TV won from a bag of Doritos a few years ago! I bought them on a Saturday, entered a code and was told Monday I had won! It was delivered the following Saturday! Quickest win to prize ever !

  33. Francesca Jones says:

    I won a Kitchen Aid Artisan mixer in a Christmas Facebook competition run by Florette. I never thought I’d own one as it’s around £600 worth of mixer which I currently could not justify spending. My hubby actually uses it as he is the cook/baker in the house – I just stand and admire my one luxury item in my kitchen…I cleaned my kitchen up ready to put it in there! lol!

  34. kerryann owens says:

    I’m a newbie to the world of comping but some of my faves have been an overnight stay in a lovely hotel with tickets to a show I gave this to my mum and dad and last week I won a product of the year goody bag which I’m over the moon with 🙂

    • Well done! Those POTY goody bags are brilliant, I enter for those every year but no luck yet! Lovely to give a prize to your folks too – I’ve sent my parents on a few nice breaks away!

  35. rosmayes says:

    My trip to Canada was my, 4 nights at Banff Springs and 3 at Lake Louise, cruise on a lake, trip up to Sulphur Mountain on the gondola and a day trip to the Icefields. Superb! And we added on ( at our expense) a trip to Toronto to Niagara Falls and then went to Usa to visit my cousin and our friends….it was a 25 WOL..I wrote a poem, but cannot remember it…sorry! I also took it to coincide with my 60th birthday! 🙂

    • Fantastic, what a treat for your 60th – but a shame you can’t remember your poem! I have notebooks full of my old slogans, and for the last few years I’ve saved them in the Evernote app on my computer. My skills are rusty though, and it’s been a while since I won a tiebreaker/slogan comp!

  36. patricia bond says:

    My best win was about 7 years ago, I won a holiday with Essentials Magazine. It was a text competition and when I got the call I thought there was a catch. The lady was very kind and gave me her number to ring her back. Meantime I scoured my old magazines pile and found the competition so rang her back quickly. I had won a holiday to Sardinia but the time that I wanted to go was out of season so she kindly booked me a holiday to Sicily instead and gave me extra spending money and included all our meals. The cost of the holiday for 2 was about £2,500, I even had enough left out of the spending money to pay for our taxi to and from the airport.

    • That sounds like a lovely prize – I’ve had a few wonderful trips to Italy, but not Sicily! It’s great to actually dig out the entry form/magazine when you win something – it helps you see that the prize is real! It’s a bit quicker these days though – no rummaging through folders, now we can just Google or check for the T&Cs!

  37. sonseyface says:

    Recently it would be my £1800 Fisher and Paykal fridge freezer, I could hug it I love it so much

  38. Debra Etchells says:

    reading this is so fantastic and to see you have won some amazing prizes really does inspire me to carry on with my new hobby. I have only been comping since about august last year. I have had some great wins so far. My latest win is with Interflora and it is a special set tour around the new Coronation Street set, a Manchester hotel stay and a £250 Intu gift card. I am thrilled as I love Coronation st and shopping.x
