Hey guys! Currently I’m writing from 1st October 2019, a whole year ago! I thought it’d be really cool to do a little experiment. I thought I’d do a whole year of entering giveaways and competitions DAILY to see how much I’d win in a year (if anything!)
I’ve recently seen a lot of compers (someone who regularly enters competitions) on TV shows and YouTube saying about how much they win in a year and honestly, it’s incredible!
I did some digging and thought I’m going to try to become a dedicated comper for a whole year and see if it actually works and if luck is on my side.
From the digging I did, it says you have to enter roughly about 100 competitions DAILY. My mouth dropped when I first heard this because I was going to go for 5 or 10 a day and thought 100 competitions in a day would take hours upon hours but it really doesn’t.
I checked my phone activity before and after entering comps and I honestly can say there’s no difference and you’d be surprised how quick you can enter and find competitions.
I mostly only used free competitions and I used websites and only two social media platforms: twitter and Instagram.
First of all, I dabbled in this experiment from July but I didn’t start properly until October but I did win some sweets prizes that I must include.
Here’s what I won:
£50 Missguided voucher
This was a twitter win, just took one simple RT and then I got DM’ed a code to spend £50. I chose a Bardot body suit, a jumpsuit and a Barry M face mask.
£150 Virgin Experience Days Gift Card
I won a virgin experience days gift card worth £150! I was chuffed as nuts with this. It was just from a website called RCI and although I needed to do a bit of chasing via email I then got it in 2 days with express delivery.
I chose a box of hotel chocolat chocolates and a spa break for 2.
Here’s my hotel chocolat goodie:
Total worth: £200
Lonely Planet – Ultimate Travelist Book
I was so, so thrilled to win this book. I’ve wanted this book for a while and I’m such a fan of travelling and making lists. It came with a lovely map too. This whole blog is about my bucket list so this book is so fitting!
This was a simple tweet and they were giving away loads of prizes so a really easy to win competition!
This book is £19.99.
Wordery – £100 worth of books
This is definitely my favourite win so far. This was twitter win and all I had to do was share a book-ish moment so I posted a picture of me holding a book by the pool on my holiday. I then got to spend £100 on Wordery’s website (which is amazing, btw!)
The books came in incredible condition and the delivery was SO SO quick.
Here’s all the books I chose.
Hidden Fashion Item of Choice
I choose these trainers which were £7.50 and actually pretty good quality for the price!
Ego boots! These were a twitter win and are so wacky! I’m thinking of taking these to Coachella next year possibly! Worth £42.99.
