To be honest I'm a bit disappointed with joining this site. A lot of competitions you have to be a member if not you have to register and to be honest I can't be bothered to keep putting in my details time and time ago .... pain the arse ! thumbs down

Hi Cornwolf. Sorry to hear you feel that way. Entering competitions can be a hard slog. It's true - you do have to register to enter many of the competitions but you only register for each site once and once you've registered, you will find new competitions from the same companies coming up month after month, so that's not so bad. I use Google Chrome which remembers a lot of your personal info (name, address, email etc) which speeds up the process no end. When I'm on a roll, with lots of tabs open at the same time while different comps. are loading, I reckon I can average one every 30 seconds. I've won valuable prizes in the past but I must admit though that lately I've had more success with CCs own competitions than third party ones.

When clicking on ' winners' you only see people who have had minor wins ........................... nothing exciting like cars holidays cash ...................... where are those winners' names ?

Well, this has been a bone of contention with a few members, that the winners list hasn't been kept up to date. Or it could be that winners of the bigger prizes either don't bother to make their winnings public or that they don't use this site.

My biggest win was £9,000 last summer, I don't know if that appears on the winners list but I did submit it for inclusion. Just recently someone posted on the forum a win of a holiday to America and last year I remember seeing another holiday win posted. I've had several weekend breaks and a week long holiday in the UK.

Entering competitions is a great hobby if you have the time to put in the effort. What it isn't is a get rich quick scheme, I'm still searching for that!

Good luck.

That's a thought Deborah .... outsiders maybe winning the bigger prizes not attached to CC
