In late 2016 I read an article in the Daily Mirror about a lady who had won thousands of pounds worth of prizes by entering competitions daily. She had won money, holidays and thousands of pounds worth of other prizes She was winning so regularly that it became her career.
So on January 1st 2017 my New Years resolution was to a enter at least one competition a day for one year. Now the lady in the article was entering hundreds of competitions a day, so I knew I wasn’t going to be reaching her level.
For the whole year I entered at least one competition a day. I only entered free to play competitions.
For the first few months I didn’t win anything. However by month 3 I had won 2 theatre tickets, by month 6 I had won 4 theatre tickets and by month 12 I had won 4 theatre tickets (2 nights out) and £100 gift voucher.
In short, if you can spare 5 minutes or so a day, it is worth doing, If not, its probably not worth your time.
There are quite a few websites out there that list competitions. The best one that I found for the UK was Competition Database. You can change the view from ‘Competitions Ending Today’ to ‘New Competitions Added’. Depending on which one meets your needs best.
Good luck and happy comping.
