Another great month with £740 worth of prizes, I had a dry spell the first 2 weeks of Jan but that just fuelled my comping passion even more and I entered loads of comps, probably around 100 a day and it paid off. This month I also had a decent amount of freebies and products to review which made up for the initial lack of wins. I hope January has been kind to you all. Here is January’s haul.
A block of Wyke farms cheese. They run regular #FreeCheeseFriday comps that I’ve been entering for ages, this is definitely one of my most wanted wins. Sometimes it doesn’t matter how small the prize is, it’s just the thrill of the win!
A leisure club pass from hallmark hotels using their online scratchcard game they were giving away meal vouchers and hotel stays. I entered every day of the month only winning 30% off a meal each time but I finally hit a good one at 9pm on a Sunday.
A winter car survival kit on twitter, a simple retweet to win.
One of my favourite wins was a kids scooter that I won via Aptimils purchase necessary draw, you had to buy 3 packs of toddler milk and upload your receipts to win 1 of 100 scooters, I spent £30 on milk and the scooter is worth £60 so a prize with £30 profit in my book!
A toppsta kids book. Sign up here Toppsta and enter their monthly giveaways. You win the book in exchange for a review. I’ve put this is in my wins rather than reviews as I actually won it on their facebook page where they ran a separate draw to the online one. You just had to comment saying what book your little one was currently reading.
Another of my fave wins was the starwars bb-8 robot worth £130. I bought some Duracell batteries for £7 in Tesco as part of their purchase necessary draw which are always handy with a toddler so again a great profit on my prize.
A bottle of Shloer soft drink on their facebook page, you had to like and comment your favourite curry, I chose sweet potato and coconut and they chose my comment as the winner.
Some hedgehog food from Spikes on facebook, a simple like and comment. I’ve donated this to my little boys nursery as its also a forest school that attracts lots of wildlife.
A Tonka truck from ukmumstv that I’ve won twice with now. I had no notification that I had won – it just arrived through the post!
A hamper from Listers farm shop for choosing the next Great British Pork Slogan! You can read all about it here NPA Slogan Winner this won me a hamper worth £100!
£10 on the postcode lottery. You have to pay each month to enter and I only signed up in December after one of my friends missed out on £13,000 when her area won the millions draw! That was motivation enough!
A fab freebie haul this month, the best one being meal kits through Simply Cook. They usually cost £9 a box but you can get your first one for just £1 with code RM2053 then just cancel after your first one is delivered or refer your friends to get free boxes, this is what I did and 10 of my friends signed up which meant I was delivered 10 free boxes worth £90! They contain all the spices, herbs and sauces to cook delicious dinners, you just add the meat and the veg. They do veggie aswell as Gluten Free options. The box for just £1 really is excellent value. Sign up here Simply Cook and use code RM2053 at checkout to reduce the price to £1.
Toothpaste via boots app. Download and enter you boots card number to see offers and freebies tailored to your shopping habits. I got a free toothpaste when I bought a kids toothbrush. The price is automatically deducted at the till. Don’t forget to pick up your free magazine whilst your there with your card too!
Baby food free via checkout smart. Download the app and upload receipts to get cashback on your purchases making them free. You need to get £20 worth of cashback before you can withdraw without a fee. I’m saving my cashback from all my apps (Topcashback, Quidco, Clicksnap, GreenJinn, Shopmium – enter code AACGAFEN to grab a free chocolate bar on me) for Christmas 2018 to make my Christmas shopping free
I got this watch free via jewellery bank. You had to pay postage and you can choose various freebies (only one per transaction) check out their freebies here Jewellery Bank
All these freebies were via Shopmium app. Since I found out about it I’ve had £74 worth of food and drink for free using my credits. There is always a couple of freebies in the app aswell as great offers on big brands. This month I got all these for free. Don’t forget to use code AACGAFEN when you join to get your free chocolate bar!
Graze boxes. I got 2 free boxes delivered, one via a voucher that was sent to my inbox and one via their sign up offer. You get your 1st, 5th and 10th box free when you sign up here Graze and use code RODERI9JP. You can cancel at any time even after your first free one if you want to!
Other freebies I found on Latest Free Stuff and Magic Freebies which included baby toiletries, wipes and coffee pods.
Free Products in exchange for a review
The Boots Review Panel has been kind to me this month, I’ve received £152 worth of beauty products to review! You get to keep full sized products in exchange for a review. Sign up here Boots Volunteers here are the products I was sent.
I was also sent some elemis face cream from Glamour Beauty Club to try which was worth £24.
Next months goal is to attempt to win an Ipad as ours has recently died so I’m on a tablet mission! Wish me luck and happy comping!
