How was your comping year?

How has everyone done for wins this year? I've just been looking over my list and it's looking somewhat pathetic!  I had one decent win (£2k from Take A Break puzzles, which put me into Bauer prison till February and exempted me from all the huge radio comps these past few weeks!!!) but not much besides.

My entire year looks like this:
3 x bottles of CBD oil (mag daily)
A "spa night in" gift which was in reality some bubble bath, chocolate and body oil (mag daily)
£2000 from TaB
Final Fantasy XIV download code
£50 Tesco gift card
And a few 80p / £1.30 wins from Topcashback games

And that's it! Slim pickings on the whole, although the £2k did come in handy at the time.  Gone are the days when I'd have 5-10 wins per month!  :'(  How has everyone else done?

    I got back to comping at the end of August after a 6 year break and won an iPhone 13 and AirPods and a fab weekend away in Leeds with dinner on both nights.

    Thanks to everyone who posts and good luck for 2022

    Started back about July/August I think, had a few small wins but nothing major

    Didn't even win anything in the PayPal comp that's loads of people won a few times 🤣🤣

    Advents didn't win a doddle but think some of them haven't finished or the draws have not been made yet so 🤞🤞 hoping for a WEM or even better a suprise from the postie these coming weeks

    No competition wins for me at all in 2021, think I need to take a step back in 2022 as it is now just becoming routine and the enjoyment has gone out of it.
    Thanks to all those that post.

    A few small wins and most of them were Instagram wins......I am spending way too long every day entering comps, so 2022 is going to be a bit different, the hours everyday I enter with no wins are many....2022 will be different :)
