As near top will bump to say thanks for doing all this. I also got failed to save, so will probably do by email one more time. It's prob quicker that way anyway.

Edit: Got usual email confirmation, so my guess is it's fine to still enter that way

it's like when they first got all the other mags online with entering for the first time,
always some blips/problems, expect after a few complaints/emails to the site they'll sort it out & it'll settle down
i got email confirmation for sending in as usual

hi mel, the email entry is still a valid entry method as
stated in the mag,


the new online entry is just like a long time ago when all the puzzle/weekly mags started going online & we had all the bumps/blips/etc then (nothing changes)
& not so long ago the Bella mag & that sometimes is still having it's moments

be prepared for the onslaught

Still getting an error but hopefully it will resolve soon

Is anyone else finding the colours of the form really headache-inducing? My head and eyes now hurt!

Thanks for this.

Just to clarify; can both you and your wife enter at the same address or is it strictly just one entry per household?

What is goin on with the easter mags, no answers have been up online so I am wondering if they are skipping a week? I will go into a shop later and check if i dont get a reply.
