Im tired of entering competitions only to find I have a five to ten minute survey to complete; followed by endless calls from telemarketing for life and funeral insurance. Any body else feel my pain??

Ask your question
  • I hear you I hate it also. I have given up on a lot of the competitions. It just just not worth my time. I like to do 25 words or less comps but boy do you have to be creative.

  • I stopped entering those competitions so I wouldn’t get the calls.

  • Yes it’s a pain to receive unwelcomed phone calls because you have entered a competiton!

  • Yes iv’e entered before but now i don’t, as you say to them ‘i’m not interested please don’t call again’ but they don’t seem to listen or remove your details from their list. they just keep calling.

  • That is sneaky . I have been seeing a lot of 25 words or less ones and enter those ones more .

  • yes, I don’t enter them

  • Yes, unfortunately this is how they are able to fund the competition.

  • ýep, don’t enter those one

  • agree totally with you, wish they would be honest upfront so you know what time you need to spend.

  • yes I hate those ones that you enter a comp then they says heres 10 more comps to enter. or people trying to sell tie shares.

  • please avoid those competitions, it is not helpful at all.

  • I try to avoid those types of competitions, they are more hassle then they are worth. :/

  • Oh yeah, definitely stay away from them ones. There are so many scams out there. My other half did a comp and ended up getting calls from 4 different places totally un-related to the competition!

  • I dont touch those with a ten foot pole – they almost always result in some dodgy prize that will cost money or require a face to face sales pitch
