    People on the comps board introduce themselves 27th Mar 07 at 7:21 PM
    I started to think that we don't know each other at all. We all comp together and congratulate each other on wins but we don't know anything about each other at all. They have a thread like this on the Old Style board so why not on this one?

    So I'll start. I'm a female, almost 37 years old with 2 daughters aged 12 and 9. I'm getting married next year to a man I met on the internet and I have been seeing him for 2 and a half years now. He has a daughter who's 17 so soon I'll be a 'wicked' stepmother. I live on the Suffolk coast about 10 minutes walk from the beach. My hobbies are comping, music (The Cure) and travel. I'm an old goth and I'm on a Travel and Tourism correspondence course (nearly finished). I work from home.

    Hi guys,

    I work in social media, based in London, and sometimes have some cool competitions that I run for brands. So keep an eye on my profile if you want to be the first in there!

    Nice to e-meet everyone.

    Hi all,

    I'm technically a newbie... although I was quite active back in 2012 and won loads. Nice to see a lot of familiar names still, although mine is different. Life's changed a lot since then. Love comping and the 'uncertainty' it brings whenever I get an email. Been comping solidly since the start of the year and have had a couple of nice things will try and chip in where I can!

    Hey everyone,

    I'm Amber, 24 and from Bristol, living here with my two lovely cats. Currently in the (long and frustrating!) process of trying to move to Kent.

    I'm new to comping, I've been doing it for about a month now and I'm hooked! I had my first win today too, which was amazing. Only a small win (the girl with all the gifts on blu ray and the book) but a lovely feeling to get something out of it.

    Loving this site and all the tips and help, made it so much easier for me to get into comping.

    Good luck all

    Hi!

    I have literally just joined this forum as i was googling a bit about comping as i've always been a subtle fan but today i've decided to embrace my obsession

    I'm 19, going onto my second year of uni. I comp because i'm thrifty and i also believe it'll allow me to do the things i want without struggling. I mainly comp for holidays but winning anything gives me this amazing feeling i cant explain but im sure you all can relate to.

    Born Again Comper
    I was very active a few years back. I used to compile and maintain a list of all ITV comps won by members, after getting a small prize from David Dickinson's show myself, but had to give it all up due to new family and work commitments. I'm back now mostly doing postal cash comps, but also we are on the lookout for an iphone for my needy son and a dishwasher to replace ours which is apparently now wanted by the Science Museum. Then a family holiday is also pretty high on the wants list. No luck yet but it's early days really and I don't have time to do many smaller comps.

    Best of luck to all,

    Rich.x

    Hello everyone! First time comper, Just got into this wonderful world. I live in Italy, is there any way to sort which comps are open internationally? I subscribed to a thread and tried to comb through them, but it was soo time consuming! THanks everyone for the help

    Hi everyone. My name is Jason, I'm 39 And I'm a builder in Devon. I'm currently off work for a couple of days due to a minor injury, and thought I'd use my time to try and win a few things.
    I'm new to entering competitions, but am finding it very addictive, so I think I will be sticking with this for the foreseeable future.
    Thanks to everyone for posting the competitions on here, hopefully I'll be able to contribute soon.

    I'm a returning comping addict Thanks to everyone who posts on here ! You have made so many happy moments and memories for people including me! One of the best things I have ever won from a post on this site (a few years ago) was my very first Kindle; it is v standard and v outdated compared to what you can get today but I would never part with it.. All I can do with it is read books which I love! Takes me away from reality for a bit with no social media distractions I'm Trying to get in to the swing of the comping again... Made 2 booboos today already by posting 2 comps which were dupes so apologies for that but every mistake is a lesson

    Introduction
    Hi, I'm Wayne

    New to comping, I have a wife, 2 children and full-time job. Currently, a little injury means a little bit of time is spent scouring the internet for new opportunities and things to excite, like trying to win a prize. Which is interesting because I may even start a company with this model in mind in the future, looking at giving charity as a key element. We have had some help in our lives from certain organisations, and karma dictates wheat comes around.... so I guess try and do things to give back

    Hi, I'm Nikki
    I took a four year break from comping whilst completing my midwifery degree, but I've been back a week or so and am hoping for some nice prizes soon. I'm hoping to buy my first ever house later this year/early next year and so house things would be nice but so would family days out/trips/holidays as money has been tight over the last four years and will be this year too.
    I won some lovely prizes last time, my favourites being tickets for experiences that we wouldn't have normally been able to take part in.
    Sending everyone lucky dust xxx
