    I gave up after countless attempts. Have filled in their online contact form advising them of the difficulty entering their comps as of late and asked them to look into it.

    I sometimes find it won't go through if I use a form filling software, but if I refresh and type in manually it goes through fine x

    Nope - I've refreshed the page, refreshed the capacha... nothing works. It still won't accept the capacha, and I've tried another ten times. So annoying!

    Had a reply

    Thank you for your email,

    I'm sorry if you have been having issues entering our competitions, I appreciate this must be a little frustrating.

    I usually recommend that customers enter all the required information and then refresh the Captcha code just before beginning to enter it, this will give you the maximum amount of time to enter the code.

    If you can tell me a specific competition you are having an issue with, I would be happy to look into this further for you.

    We’d love to hear your thoughts on how we did today. Your comments are really valuable to us and if you’d like to share your views, please click on the link below to take part in our quick survey. As a thank you, we’ll also enter you into our monthly prize draw where you could win £500 in gift cards.

    Needless to say their recommendation doesn't work - and I am sure it is something we have all tried!
    Perhaps we are all too slow - I'll suggest they install a timer on the page if there is a time limit!

    I have had a response From Waitrose Customer Services re the capthcha isssue
    My apologies for the delay in responding to you.

    I'm sorry you've had issues entering some of our competitions recently. So that we can look into this further, could you please let me know which competition you were trying to enter. I'll than submit your details into the competition and ask our IT team to look into this further.
    Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

    I have after numerous attempts/browsers/refreshing captcha/ not using form filling software, only entering number captcha , keyboard numbers only..... etc. managed to finally enter this competition yesterday so can't send my details now. There appears to be no logic as to why it worked.

    I replied to their response of yesterday asking them to check with their IT department and have had the following back -

    [B]Thank you for your email.

    I'm sorry you are still having issues entering our competitions, I have raised this with our technical team who have advised there are currently no problems with any of our online competitions.

    I have been on to the website and submitted an entry to the Sacla competition for you, to win a two night trip to Milan, this went through first time without issue.

    It may be worth clearing the cookies and browsing history on your web browser, before attempting another competition entry, as this can solve a great many issues people experience on different websites.

    Don't give up on this one. I must have tried 50+ times and it finally went through. Didn't do anything different, so have no explanation!

    For those having difficulty entering Waitrose competitions enter your details including ticking terms & conditions then reset captcha/code until only numbers are showing. Then enter the numbers and hit enter key on keyboard not submit . It may take a few attempts but it seems to work better when only numbers are showing.
