Can I post a comp that is above minimum spend, but is possibly something a lot of people do anyway?

Morrisons are running a competition, with really good prizes, but you have to do an online shop within certain dates, each shop is an entry.

Is obviously way over the minimum spend allowed, if I put Morrisons Online Shoppers in title would that be permitted?
I love this board, have "virtually" met so many lovely people, people I am honoured to count as friends.

    If you had to spend £3 on an item then that would generally not be allowed (although spend of that and above was allowed in the freebies section) presumably whatever the minimum basket value is would count as the spend - There are sometimes competitions for Ocado smart pass holders which are potentially ok (like some for particular Mobile firm customers/AA members etc) if they don't involve a delivery but the £40 minimum spend would presumably rule them out otherwise.
    (firms cannot charge extra just because they are running an on pack promotion so the competition entry is effectively free regardless of product cost but they haven't allowed it in the past)

    I wish you could, as I regularly shop online at Morrisons, and I haven't seen any mention of any competition 🙁🙁☹

    Now you know it exists, you can find details by googling.

    I regularly shop instore in Morrisons and have a My Morrisons account and I did get an email about it so hopefully most Morrisons shoppers will too. Unfortunately I don't like online grocery shopping so no use to me.

    Perhaps you could answer the original question about posting this or not so there is clarity going forwards

    What did you search Google for? I put in, Morrisons online shopping competition, and the 2nd and 3rd results both related to the competition. Also the 4th to 7th results all referred to it.

    Anything over the £2.10 spend should not be posted, as per rules. A maximum is just that and I would assume you shouldn't be able to post any competitions over the maximum, otherwise there would be no need for a maximum rule.
    2. Free Competitions Only. This is a not a place to advertise competitions you have to pay to enter. I will accept limited cost text message type competitons (though frankly they're usually naff apart from in special circumstances) where they cost up to £1.50 to text to enter, but generally I would say make sure they are free.

    MSE UPDATE OCT 2013: Many paid-to-enter competitions now cost more to enter. We've asked Competitions Board users the limit they feel is appropriate in this poll and have increased the maximum cost to £2.10. Please remember we don't encourage forum users to spend money on competitions but if you still feel you absolutely must enter these competitions then that's fine.

    If you visit the Morrisons main website, it is the first on the banner, although I saw it on a Facebook advertisement.
    You'll need your shopping delivered between 14/01/22 - 27/01/22.



    At a push, I'd say it might belong better in the Shopping & Freebies section but then they might say it belongs more over here (Competition Time) as it is a competition, but it wouldn't be allowed.

    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    Hi, if it were to be posted in the Shopping & freebies section, it would indeed be moved to comps board but as it’s not allowed on here either, it would be locked & moved x
