    Before I get excited - Anyone had a Beauty Base Email? 4th Oct 16 at 1:07 PM
    Just had a really short email from Beauty Base with 'Competition Winner' in the subject and in the body it just states

    Hi (and then my name)

    Congratulations you have won the competition Win Top Designer Fragrance Collection worth £700 on the beauty base website.

    Beauty Base

    I think its from the post below, but when I've clicked through to the comp page, it says the winner would be announced on 5th October and says the winner is 'Lisa'. Don't want to get too excited in case they've emailed all entrants by mistake lol! agrance+collection

    Me too! Didn't get the "winning" email, but did get the second one offering 10% off. Can't even get a WEM when it isn't real

    I shall write them an email expressing my utter despair at not being included in their non-winners' club and I shall suggest that the person who didn't send me one should be sacked

    Although, my mum, like you, got the 10% follow up email.....I however, didn't even get that! Time to feel left out again!

    Blummin' heck! I got the email yesterday, went to work absolutely buzzing and slept with a smile on my face...woke up this morning, checked my spam folder and saw the 'sorry, but here have 10% off instead' email! Boo!

    I've had a little win since starting comping a few months ago...thought I'd managed a whopper win already! Oh well, keep trying...

    (They can stick their 10% up their backside...)

    Apparently some people got the "winning" email in their inbox, but the 10% off apology ended up in their junk email - they only found it because they went looking for it, but if you didn't know about it and didn't check your junk then could still be in for a disappointment unfortunately.

    Won 2 weeks ago
    Hi , I won the competition from beauty base , received an email from them congratulating me of winning it. I sent them and email back saying thank you and asking if they have my details or should i forward them my address.. I didn't receive a reply. It was 2 weeks ago when I received the email but the prize has not arrived..
    Does anybody know whether I should wait for a little more or contact them instead ?

    Also it says on their web page a completely different name under the prize I should've won..

    Sorry to disappoint you but beautybase mistakenly sent out a message to all comp entrants (me included!) saying that they had won.

    You probably also had a later message from them saying ...we're sorry... but for some people that message went into spam folders.

    Better luck next time!

    One of several threads

    (If it had been a real win then unless a company says otherwise delivery of a prize should be within 30 days)
