    sorry to bump - i won a bauer comp in November (TV worth over 500) so couldnt enter for six months.... this is what it said in the email

    "We’d also like to remind you that as the prize you’ve won is valued at £500 or more, then neither you nor another individual living at the same residential address as you are entitled to win another prize valued at £500 or more for the next 6 months. This is so we can ensure everybody has a fair chance of winning."

    Terms link
    https://www.bauerlegal.co.uk/competition-general-terms-and-conditions-20190304 on which it says
    The prize is as specified in the Specific Terms. Unless otherwise stated in the Specific Terms, each entrant is limited to winning one prize per Competition. There is no limit on the value of a single prize that may be provided to the individual winners of a Competition. However, no person or persons at the same residential address may win more than one prize valued at £500 or more via any of our Competitions in any given six (6) month period.
    If a previous winner (of a prize valued at £500 or more in the last six months) is drawn at random in a subsequent Competition, or subsequent round of the same Competition within six months then they will be disqualified, and another entrant will be drawn. If it emerges after a winner has been awarded a prize that they are a previous winner of a prize valued at £500 or more in the last six months, in breach of these terms and conditions, they will be excluded and the prize shall not be paid or delivered to them. If the prize has already been paid or delivered, this must be returned immediately upon request. For clarity, it is possible to be drawn more than once to play a Competition and if an entrant has not previously won a prize valued at £500 or more in the last six months, they are eligible to play the same Competition again.

    so be careful if you enter within the 6 months they might ask for the prize back!!!!


    Logic will get you from A to B but imagination can take you anywhere!
    Being honest may not get get you a lot of friends - but it will get you the right ones.
    Let your past make you better, not bitter.

    You shouldn't really enter on someone else's behalf and could get disqualified if found out. A lot of these big companies check IP addresses.

    It's a bit annoying to receive an email about a reply to this competition thread, only to see it's general chat which would be better suited in other threads.

    Thanks
