    Oh well done you and good luck

    I don't think I would like to be wearing new trainers for a 6 mile walk though, maybe invest in some blister plasters too

    We don't believe the florescent bit, so photographic evidence is needed

    I went to bed at 10pm last night and got up at 6am, which is a shock alone

    When I went to bed I had cleared all of my emails, 8 hours later when I turned on my computer I had 397 emails again, these aren't even sent by people they are just automated emails.

    They know how to hide those unsubscribe buttons well too, then you get another email to tell you have successfully unsubscribed

    I have spent almost the last 2 hours unsubscribing from mailing lists and they are still coming in as quick as I am deleting them, the joys of comping

    Is it bedtime yet

    Afternoon

    Why bother to delete the emails? Just have them in a separate folder.

    I can see the winning prizes for rooms has already started to lead to the bending of the rules we have come to know and love on here!

    Given that anything we win has to go somewhere it would be really easy to cheat. Not that I'm saying that's a bad thing. I can see all those goodread winnings keeping books in every room in the house mind you ...

    According to Unroll Me I have over 1600 regular subscriptions

    I never bother unsubscribing to emails. I have a separate comping email address so I don't miss anything I need for other stuff. Then I just search emails for winner, won, well done, confirm, congratulations, congrats and if it does not contain any of these terms, I scan down the subject line, then delete the lot.

    Of course, I may miss some, but that is a risk I am prepared to take. (I chanced upon one in deleted once that said "your name has been drawn to receive", but I think most WEMs will contain one of the above terms.

    I have often entered competitions where the company choose a subscriber say once a month to win a prize and I wouldn't want to miss out on those by unsubscribing.

    Just catching up on this thread, been busy with the rafflecopter thread so haven't posted much lately.

    But I have 2 wins to report for May, Broadchurch Series 3 on DVD and a blu ray called Wild Oats. Don't remember ending for either of them though! I going to claim May and W for those two

    Love the room idea for next years thread, I was going to suggest win Christmas (food/drink/presents etc) but I think the room one will be easier
    September Wins:

    Case of GreenKing IPA, A Dark Song DVD

    Do you not need several alcoholic beverages after catching up on this thread?

    I love Broadchurch tis a real shame it finished after only 3 seasons, Wild oats sounds rude

    And well done on the RC/Gleam thread
