    Well after all the problems I have been having with the Waitrose comps, and being told by them that their IT dept. had checked and found no problem so it must be a problem with my browser - this went through first time!!!
    I did clear my cookies again after failing to enter the Aveeno comp this morning - so I don't know whether that helped or whether this entry was a fluke.

I found last time I filled in the form manually rather than use autofill and bingo, I managed to enter. I will try free entry ones for a bit rather than go and buy something I don't usually buy - but their IT department is "useless"!

    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 not submit . It may take a few attempts but it seems to work better when only numbers are showing.
