    Having looked at the tips for new compers i understand there are many competition sites...do you tend to stick to this site only or do you tend to look at other sites too? x

    Only here, otherwise it's easy to dupe yourself.

    too many comps..not enough time!

    Yeah I use Competition Database too, it is set out so much better than MSE, but MSE has the craic

    If you're going to use multiple competition sites then my top tip is to set up a simple spreadsheet (website, prize, closing date) to keep track so you don't duplicate. There is no need to include rafflecopter/gleam competitions as you can't duplicate them. If you set it out in alphabetical order of website as opposed to closing date as different sites list the same competition with different closing dates for example Sportstylists Headphones listed as 17/07 on Moneysavingexpert and 16/07 on theprizefinder.

    I've recently started using other competition sites because more and more competitions aren't being posted on here because a few members have stopped posting, some blogs have fallen foul of self-promotion in the past and have been banned, some websites contain a word that is banned which show up as !!! which makes posting links difficult. Some competition sites do include websites that result in spam as they earn revenue from them however you can check them against the spam list on here.

    I just stick to MSE - there is more than enough comps on here for me to enter
    A big thanks to all who post and sprinkling lucky dust to all who enter

    Don't judge my path if you haven't walked my journey...
