What I won in December and how I did it.

Welcome to 2018!

Another fantastic year for comping in 2017 with £8286 worth of prizes making it my best year yet. I’d love to smash this year by doubling my winnings so I’m going to aim for £16,000 as 2018’s comping goal! There are some amazing compers out there to look up to and one of my comping idols is Di Coke who has won over £300,000 worth of prizes in her comping career and has a fantastic blog over on SuperLucky Di is proof that it can be done so wish me luck!

December was good to me as I got to enjoy a Spa Break in The Cotswolds with 3 of my friends that I won with Chase Distillery. It was a simple online prize draw so definitely a bit of luck involved with this one! The prize was worth over £1500 as we had all our drinks and food included too! We enjoyed cocktails of Chase vodka and gin (my new very firm favourite) some wonderful treatments and stayed in the hotels top suites complete with a freestanding copper bath! We were lucky enough to have snow whilst we there which was just magical (until we had to drive home that is) but this was 100% one of my best prizes ever!

Not bad at all for December which was mostly spent losing my shit getting very stressed over Christmas! I’m so glad it’s over and we can all get back to reality now! On that note please take a look at my blog How I had a £1000 Christmas for just £100. I’m hoping to beat this for Xmas 2018 by saving all my cashback from sites I use throughout the year. I’ve already made £24.82 cash in december via Topcashback! If you sign up to them now you can grab a £5 argos gift voucher to use for next year too. I’m also a big fan of Quidco and GreenJinn so Ill be saving the cashback from them too.

Wishing you all luck for a comping 2018 and please share your comping goals with me in a comment below. Also let me know if there’s anything in particular you really want to win this year and if I spot a comp for it I’ll be sure to tag you in it!

Thanks for reading

One thought on “What I won in December and how I did it.

  1. A fantastic set of wins. I especially like that you include your freebies too. Have you ever used checkout smart? I love that app. I managed to get 8 free tubes of Colgate toothpaste through them thanks to a great cashback deal combined with tesco price match.
