Competitions ...?

Are you lucky with competitions? Had any good wins? Or are you like me, hardly even won a sausage! The last win I had was a basket of fruit in a charity shop draw (which was lovely, i might add), but it got me thinking ... you know online draws where you have to give your e-mail address, you often get a link to the donators website, ie ... if it is a night at a posh hotel, the link is to the hotel ... which I often think if you don't click, you don't even get into the draw .. do others agree?

Does anyone know of any 'good' competitions sites, I know of a lot of bad one's .. skill one's or whatever, i'd be interested to know ...

Have you won on-line & was it just the luck of the draw or are there 'secret tips' to be told Come on, spill the beans! I'm interested to know ... Lucy

Lucky you Mini, I've had some bonds bought for me when I was born and I've never won a penny

Competitions of luck ... can't remember when I won one

Competitions involving some skill/knowledge - won a few of those - best one being 100 in Virgin megastore vouchers, next best a Christmas hamper from John Lewis

Premium bonds - still haven't managed to win a prize.
Lottery - had a good year 3 years ago ... was up by 200 (only ever managed to win 10 each time), but haven't won anything since.


.... much more lucrative getting free stuff off the web

I'm not very lucky with competitions

I won a sticker album once for some band that I can't remember. And a soft toy bee
That's it!

You could get those magazines like Woman's own. They have loads of competitions in so you're bound to win something eventually!
Can't help with online things though, I have no idea
