    Congratulations - but.
    Congratulations to kfox92

    Apologies to all who very reasonably are annoyed as its not a comp post, but worth mentioning, any win over 500 means you or anyone from your household can't enter any Bauer Media competitions, thats magazines, radio stations etc. for 6 months, whether from the date of entry or receiving the cheque,(3 emails - no reply from Bauer Media)

    I choose the latter on receiving a cheque for 500. That's a lot of competitions to miss. Still congrats on the 3000.


    Reply to mersey - one sum of 500 or more.
