    I'd say that I average 1 a week, but these are usually just small wins or what I call a really good freebie. I've just had a thought - if it wasn't for winning 1 of a 100 or 1000 then I'd probably never win anything.

    I enter loads of comps. and average about 1 win a fortnight. Had a really good January, reasonable Feb. and nothing in March (yet!). Only small wins thus far, but tend to win a couple of "biggies" most years ... here's hoping :)
    Wins since 2009 = £17,600

  • I'm with the 'not very lucky' club I think! One win of a chocolate bar since I started comping back in January and plenty of time spent on it!:wall:

    I keep looking at my emails and phone in the vague hope some nice competition promoter contacts me...:doh:
    Makes my signature look a bit forlorn really!:(
    Occasional comper, even more occasional winner!

    Normally 2-3 a month for me, generally small wins, but i guess every win is a bonus :) Still waiting on my first march win.

    It varies from nothing for weeks to maybe 2 wins in a day. No pattern of wins, but then for me that's the interesting bit as I never know when a win may come along.
    Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Birmingham Childrens Hospital caring for my tiny and very poorly grandson who was born at 29 weeks. Thanks to them he is getting a little stronger every day.:A:A:A

  • Thanks to OP for this thread!

    Just looked back through my wins since I started almost a year ago and realised I won 33 prizes (worth about £1000) between starting in March 2011 and December 2011 (averaging just over one win a fortnight) and 4 prizes between January this year and today.

    Although I used to win more at the beginning than I do now it was a great reminder of some the the nice prizes I have won (for free!). Plus looking at it overall I have won 37 prizes in the 12 months I have been comping so that can't be bad.

    Reading through this has given me back the enthusiasm to enter more comps which I have been lacking over the past few months!
