I know some more will start around the 12th, but thought it might be worth compiling a list of ones to look out for that havent appeared yet, just in case.  So far I can think of these, anyone remember any more?

Superdrug
Superdrug Mobile
Grindstore

    I still have my list from last year and there are quite a lot that haven't appeared this year, but as you say, some often start later.
    So far no sign of Cheval Collection, Handpicked Hotels, Coast magazine, Interflora, Freeview, Divine Chocolate, Cotswold Outdoor, Decathlon, or Boots Photo.

    TOP MONEYSAVING TIP

    Make your own Pot Noodles using a flower pot, sawdust and some old shoe laces. Pour in boiling water, stir then allow to stand for two minutes before taking one mouthful, and throwing away. Just like the real thing!

    I copied the list I had from last year (Although I think Vans ended up being a scam one)
    I know that a few people have posted a fair few that I listed.
    But still many I haven't seen.

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

    Just curious why you'd said that the Vans one turned out to be a scam? It was, I think, the only advent I won something from (though only small things - a promotional tote bag, stickers etc.)

    Your Dog and Your Cat, and there is usually a toy shop that closes at 2pm day, but can't remember the name!

    Ohhh I'm sure someone posted something about it being a scam or I saw it on their Facebook page saying they didn't have one. I know there was some suspicion over it. So I think I stopped entering. I'm glad you won from it and got your prize! Maybe I remembered wrong or there was a fake one alongside the real one. Apologises if I was incorrect hence why I said I thought. I put a marker next to it last year for some reason, which made me think it was that one that was iffy.
