Where I find competitions to enter and what I've won in 2020

What is comping?

Comping is entering as many competitions as you can to increase your overall chance of winning something. It is one of my all time favourite hobbies, and I spend around one to two hours every single day doing it, I just love the excitement that it might be me who wins.

How to find UK competitions to enter

I use a combination of different methods to find competitions to enter:

1. Social media: Searching for various hashtags such as #win #giveaway #competition I regularly find exciting prizes up for grabs!

2. Money Saving Expert compers forum: I am a member of the forum and love the community aspect to it, it's a great way to interact with other compers and find competitions to enter.

3. Super Lucky Di: The queen of comping has a great website listing competitions and also fantastic top tips and how-to guides. You are the best Di!

4. Competition listing websites: There are a few of them out there but my personal favourites are Competition Database and Prizefinder, I find them the best for easy navigation and filtering.

5. Keeping an eye out wherever I go! When I do the weekly supermarket shop I search for promotional packaging in all the aisles, when I purchase magazines and newspapers I check all the pages and I listen out for announcements on the radio whilst i'm out and about in the car. After all... “You've got to be in it to win it!”
