  • Yeah - that isn't great but generally how would the person running it know? I enter quite a few but just use an old hotmail with my name and numbers at the front. They don't know what else I enter! :wink:

    Haha I saw this tweet too. Thing is.. When I first started comping about 7ish years ago, mine was obviously a comping email and I still won a fair bit.. but I later thought that maybe my entries would get skipped if they knew I was a comper so I setup a new email address which is clearly a 'normal' email address and i've won less. I keep all my WEM's and on my old email I have 94 emails from Oct 2015 - Dec 2020.. and my newer email I've only got 10 from Dec 2020 to now... might switch back!!  :lol:

    This annoys me, not because my time and effort is wasted, although that is frustrating.
    But because I share and enter competitions and I've often bought things regularly after trying a prize and I appreciate every prize.
    I only enter for what I can use or gift to family/friends.
    I've also left reviews because of winning a competition, which I would hope helps a company's business.
    It also goes against the gambling laws and most terms and conditions - yes they say they can refuse or retract prizes where needed, but because they enter a lot of competitions, shouldn't be a valid reason.
    Thank you to everyone who posts competitions and good luck to everyone who enters.

    I once won a competition for a package to see a band. The rep from the company told me they'd checked my facebook to see if I was a fan, or as they put it 'someone who enters everything'. So this definitely goes on. I suppose they mean well?

    This type of post is nothing new, over the years quite a few of this sort of thing has been posted in chat before and basically they are best left to stew in their own juices.
  • Yeh, I saw a few posts on socials saying that they don't give prizes to accounts which exist only to enter comps. TBH I think my social media accounts probably look like this because of low activity and anonymity. But I do uses them, I just lurk but don't post much that's all :D
    Comping for fun! Good luck everyone ❤️
