Don't forget there are hundreds of thousands of people, disabled, unwell, housebound, unemployed and lonely who regard a computer and the internet as a lifeline to the outside world. Also the same who enjoy the thrill of comping even though they never win anything. Re winnings; in the last 2 weeks I have won three times on the National Lottery.

Agree with other posters that most of the time only part of a message is printed. Just posting a normal message. nothing fancy.

From another competition site -"Most popular Competition was:Win one of 3 amazing iPad 2s!Total number of entries:792762" Obviously not all competitions are as popular but it gives you some idea of the chances of winning some comps. I enter loads (hundreds per month) and if I win one a month I'm lucky - I read of people who win nearly every day and I am not sure how they do it (or whether they actually do). Best advice is just keep entering and don't expect to win and then when you do, it's a lovely surprise.

Sorry - the number of entries in my previous message should have been 79278 (not as bad as nearly a million but still pretty daunting)

I've returned to comping after a long break - previously it was all slogans and entry forms, when I was quite successful. Now 99% of comps are online and winning is pure chance. I enter around 20 - 30 a day [takes 30 minutes or so topside?] say almost 1,000 a year. I'd be surprised if any comp has less than 10,000 entries. Which means I have at best a 1 in 10 chance of winning anything over the year. BUT that one win might be a 'holiday of a lifetime' or something equally excellent. And so I I'm happy to put in my 30 minutes a day based on those odds. If I entered each one EXPECTING to win I'd be racked with disappointment all day every day!

Just looked on the winners page and some one has won 12 prizes,how can one person win all this,and before the reply is they must be a dedicated comper,I class my self as a dedicated comper with hundreds on the go at the moment but sometimes I sometimes wonder why I bother if one person can win so many.

As mentioned before the winners page is compiled by users informing us of their wins.
The person who reported 12 wins might have won them over 10 years or 10 weeks, they may not have even won them at all, we only have their word for it.
CC is a competition portal, the only competitions we run and have access to winner information are the one that appear under the 'our competitions' section.

All I can say is keep plugging away, we aim to make the task of entering competitions for you as easy as possible so you can enter more and increase your chances of winning.

Good luck.

I just posted a few very nice wins that I had last year smiling smiley

Have also just heard that I've won a fancy music system from a comp I entered a couple of weeks ago from here.

Keep at it - one day your name will be drawn

In April I will have been entering EVERY competition on this site for 2 years and so far won £1000 cash, £25 cash x 2, a holiday to Butlins, Bognor Regis, a two night stay at the Derby Starlights Holiday Inn plus Derby Feste tickets, concert tickets for Olly Murs, Professor Green, Womad, The Wanted, McFly and Richard Hawley, £215 worth of Liz Earle make-up, VIP trip to Manchester Airport for a guided tour of Concorde for 4 including lunch, pair of Oliveira shoes, make-over in London, a £100 voucher for a Florian Tote bag, 4 tickets to the At-Bristol Science Centre, family ticket for the Bristol open-top sightseeing bus, a six week pilates course plus lots of much lesser value prizes. It is a numbers game and I'm sure if you stick at it, your time will come.

no wins for a while - i took a couple of months away over the summer - but it;s still worth doing if you can find the time each day, I suspect having had a few wins early on i am not due one for a while, but if you have the time, and the inclination, there's no harm.

To those of you moaning - just stop entering competitions.

Hi,
I won a £500 watch on a shorlist.com competition about 14 months ago.
1 x DVD, 5 CD's and complimentary tickets to a red carpet premiere in Leicester Square, London which I gave to a friend who lives in London.
I've also had discount vouchers and money off coupons for entering but not winning, which I've found have come in very useful.
I introduced a friend to cc and they immediately won a 12 day Med Cruise which they are enjoying as I type this!

It's a numbers game I reckon, I enter as many as I can and I am certain that one day I will win one (or more) of the really big prizes.

I am just restarting entering comps. In the past I have won a timeshare and several small prizes including a years supply of pasta and a full new playing kit for my husbands cricket team plus a washing machine. Its all about being consistent I believe. Do one or two a day. Find them through here or facebook,mags etc. Good Luck !

Definitely a numbers game, I didn't win anything last year apart from a carbon dioxide alarm, but this year have won 2 prizes this year already, one being a weekend theatre break in London.>grinning smiley<

Hwilko, Yes i am sure it's just a numbers game, i won not a beanmoody smileydoing internet comps last year, and all my wins were postcard entries.smiling smiley But 2014 i have had 3 nice wins to a value of £500 and hopefully more to come. Anyway you have to be in it to win it, and good luck for this forthcoming year smiling smiley

I signed up in November 2012 and entered every available competition as they came on as well as clearing the backlog, in December won a weeks skiing holiday to Bansko, all inclusive. Then a Jaegar handbag a month later, the some olive oil and for the rest of the year nothing at all, I gave up but have started again in January 2014. If you don't do any then you can't win any.

ive been comping over 30 years and only ever won small items once or twice a year

these people who claim they win loads a month well......
Re: DOES ANYBODY ACTUALLY WIN?

I can promise you, Lizziejayne, I have won just over 20 prizes in 23 months - admittedly only about 5 or 6 were 'substantial' but all were welcome. I listed my best prizes in this thread in January. I think if I were to be 'making them up', I'd have come up with a list of different prizes. Do you enter every single competition on this site? I personally think that that is key. I haven't won a thing this year yet but I'm sure it's only a matter of time.
