I signed up last July and had no success until a month ago when I won a holiday in Thailand (through Conde Nast Magazine). I was starting to get cynical about it too but must have entered hundreds (mostly holiday and travel). I think it must be a numbers game so I would hang on in there, no tactics just enter everything you are interested in. I don't do any which involve tie-breaks or slogans - just stick to the draws. I will be renewing my subscription in July and going to see if I win anthing else (however small) by the end of the year.

Have been a CC member for over a year and won nothing.What I do notice though when I look at the winner's page the same names crop up time and time again.How can this be?

Congratulation on the win!

I wound`t discount slogan competitions as numbers generally much lower. Draws area numbers game henceythe low win to entry ratio.

Also, a positive attitude mindset helps to get through the difficult lean periods!

The winners page relies on people telling us they won, so if you won three prizes and told us about them then your name would appear three times.

That is exactly what I mean how can the same people win prize after prize.

I guess they are dedicated to entering a lot of competitions and get lucky from time to time.

I am probably one of them that you see their name quite a lot, I have been entering comps for over twenty years and as others have said its just about doing what you want to win and as many as possible I spend on average fifteen to twenty hours a week ! I know sado but its been very profitable, Rome Austria Gemany(world cup) Egypt loads of other stuff but its luck of the draw and perseverance Good Luck.

Could not agree more. Been doing this for over thirty years and its been very worthwhile. You have lean spells ( did not win a bean over a 12 month period ) and great periods where a won a dozen prizes in one week!
I spend an hour every day doing comps, it's all about perseverance and just plain luck!
As the saying does; You have to be in it to win it!

I am new to Competitors Companion. Over the years, though, I have won lots of prizes,including holidays. I have tended to keep away from free prize draws, because of the time commitment, but now that I have more time I think the site is proving very helpful.
I agree that the prize draws must be a numbers game, so I will stick at it!

Hi. I have been with this company 4hours, entered 30 competitions and haven't won anything:-). Very Dissapointed......Only Joking. True about the membership time though, but hoping to win something eventually. Did win a HD tele last year with another competition company which more than covered my membership with them. Understand you can tick auto entry with this company, but not knowing which ones they have entered on my behalf I could end up entering the same competition twice and forfiet any prize. Is there anyway to find this out? Thanks

thumbs up I joined about 6 weeks ago, and within two days won an iPod, which i have to admit i wasn't expecting - i was very suspicious when i got the phone call, assuming it was a scam - i feel a bit churlish now...

anyway, nothing since then, but frankly i wouldn't expect anything thus far, and have every intention of carrying on.

does anyone think its to do with age when you enter competitions because if you notice so many ask your age and if you miss doing the ones that says age you still have to enter your birthdates when you sign up in the first place. so they have got you there .if so its only the young that stands a chance
Re: DOES ANYBODY ACTUALLY WIN?

I often wonder why they ask your age might be right there,if you are over fifty like me your entry could be ignored.

My advice to rudders is simple. It is not enough to sign up to CC. You actually have to enter some comps as well.

Hi Ukraine32,
What are you trying to post? is it a copy paste? I'd like to know where the forum is failing so I can fix it if it is.

Thanks.

Time for an update - i have been doing CC for 5 months, and enter pretty much every competition.

So far, 5 prizes - as it happens i hav given them all away to various people, but that's not really the point.
