I’ve always liked competitions. Ever since I was a young adult. I have been addicted to Take 5 and That’s Life since they came out, partly due to the lure of possibly winning a new car every week.
I would enter randomly on and off then get sidetracked with kids.
It was last year while pregnant I started entering again. Facebook competitions were everywhere. Like a page, go into the draw.
Days before I gave birth I got an email from one of my favourite blogs – I had won a pram – a Mama and Papa Armadillo from www.stuffmumslike.com
I was hooked.
The next big win came in October last year. I was sitting at home and my email pinged. I had won a brand new Thermomix plus $150 cash.
There had been over 50,000 entries.
Since then the prizes have rolled in. $3000 Port Douglas holiday, a $3000 Barbie recording package, $2000 worth of white goods, movie premiere tickets and more movie passes than I can use. Toys, books, DVDs, the total would be at a guess close to $15,000 in prizes.
I often get asked how I win. And the answer is enter. You cannot win if you don’t enter.
My top tips for you are:
The $44 membership fee is well worth it. Lottos lists every competition available.
Read blogs. Blogs often have giveaways. My favourites are
All do regular giveaways.
My other suggestion is buy kids magazines. We regularly win from Total Girl, Kzone, Dmag and Mania.
Join Mouth of Mums – wwww.mouthofmums.com.au – regular competitions.
www.justkidding.com.au – monthly competitions for kids.
And most of all enter enter enter and don’t give up!
