Hello!

I call myself a hobby comper. Whilst at home and unemployed at age 20 I found I was getting disillusioned with so many rejections from jobs and needed to find an outlet as well as a way to pay the bills. A friend of mine showed me an online forum where I could find links to heaps of different competitions and surveys online. So I thought why not and started to enter. A few weeks later I won my first prize – a cd. Over the next few months I won some movie tix, beauty products, and even earnt myself a gift voucher. I was hooked! The next few years I earnt more vouchers, won cds, movie tix, small electronics and appliances and other things. I was able to enter even more after having my first son and being on bed rest for 12 weeks after a ceserean. Two years after my son was born I was in the supermarket and saw a promo on a bottle of cordial. I thought yeah we will drink that and it was an instant win to win thongs, t-shirts etc so I thought I’d have a chance to win one of the small prizes. About 2 weeks after I entered the comp I got a phone call from the company. The lady on the phone said congratulations you have one the weekly prize of a holiday to Queensland!!! I was so excited. Everything was paid for and I got spending money on top. It didn’t seem real at first until I got the information through the mail. Then I rang the travel agent who was organising the prize on behalf of the company simply told her what dates we wanted to go and next thing my husband, my son, my mum (as because it was a family holiday and my son was under 3 they paid for my mum to go as well – which was an added bonus) and I were off to Queensland. We had such a great time flights, buffet dinners, resort room and service, visiting theme parks, going on a cruise. It was an absolute blast. Since then I have won a couple of smaller 2-3 night holidays as well as the small things I was winning before. Next I’m going after to win a car which is the big prize I’ve always wanted but am yet to be that lucky :)

  • Good luck! I would love to win a car too, seen as I can’t afford one but they seem like the hardest competitions of all to win.
