    Why haven't I won??? 4th Oct 11 at 11:31 AM
    I've been comping now for approximately 9 months and I haven't won a bean.

    I know it's all luck, and I'm not the luckiest person alive, but is there anyone out there taken this long or longer to win something???

    Dont worry keep on at it- Im not as lucky as others, havent won for about 2 months. but yesterday won 2 tickets to Christmas Ideal Home. Still waiting for a big win, people do it.

    Hang on in or as I sometimes do take a little break.

    Carry on Comping

    Depends what type of comp you enter and how many you enter.

    Remember comps have hundreds if not thousands of entries.

    Keep at it and even the little wins count

    Don't give up, I can go for months & not win a thing even though I enter up to 300 comps a day and I have never won a "BIG" prize. I just do it for fun & don't expect to win so it is a lovely surprise when I do.

    Good luck to you. I have done it for a year now and ALL my wins are in my sig lol... Not going so good despite spending hours each day and lunch time at work doing it too! Don't give in just yet, keep at it. I am giving this till feb 2012 and might give up then as my life is getting too busy!!

    I hope our luck turns soon!

    I rarely win but entering gives me hope and I do it mainly for fun.
    I did win a Fisher Price baby swing about 18 months ago, gratefully received as a present by son's mate and his wife for their new baby.

    I feel your pain - I've been entering lots of comps this year and have only had 2 very small wins. It gets soooooo frustrating when you start to read the 'I've won' forum as it feels like people are winning some huuuuge prizes - and whilst I'm glad for everyone else it does at times feel like my heart is bleeding and aching for a decent prize.

    Best of luck to youl

    Try to enter a mix of competitions with prizes of different values. Your patience will eventually be rewarded!
