I have been stuck in surveys because I won $100 E Gift Card from Outsiders survey in January but they don't want to give to me . I sent many emails but they kept telling me - you will receive your prize in two days . All emails time we're replying at 3 Am in Australia time. Just be aware it.
17 Aug 9:42 PM
Thanks for sharing, hope it works out for you :)

Hey all just got back from a competition i won to go to China on instagram with Tsingdao beer company. 5 star accommodation flights ect.. even made the newspaper over there. Crazy fun!

How many competitions do you think you enter a day or week?
17 Aug 8:57 PM
@fourleaf Wise words indeed. I like the saying life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.I'm normally the same around 50 max a week. Going on a crazy 1000 comp journey at the moment. 107 comps entered in 4 days so far. I'm surprised too because I've manage to enter that number and stay away from the 'candle' comps.Wish me luck and a few months from now you might see a newspaper saying man enters 1000 comps and wins them all hahahaha :)Thanks for your comment and here's to a winning week!!!
18 Aug 2:45 AM
@fourleaf I agree that prioristing your time becomes an important factor. The online calender sounds interesting is that the one connected with outlook? I might of tied it at one point, however found it didn't quite suit keeping things manageable. It got a bit complex how to use it for reoccuring daily comps etc. @Smalot11 The absolute number of comps entering isn't that important. Like your finding you can easily find lots of good quality comps. There's a whole world of them. There's isn't a rabbit hole big enough to stuff them all in. Be interesting what you learn about what methods for finding and managing you find efficient. You may find it's a challenge for finding comps from multiple comp sites, various social media feeds, emails and FB notiifications, twtter notifcations, instagram notifications, youtube etc etc to check for winning annoucements. You may also consider checking out your local comps which might be off the main comping radar. IMO a lot of compers end up concerntrating on the FB and less so the instagram comps or end up limiting to a couple of comping sites to keep it manageable. You may get away with minimal recording etc of the comps entered. Thou when your dealing with doing something 1000+ times you start evaluating how you can simplify and reduce the effort required. A minute saved/wasted per comp adds up. Time you could doing somthing more fun or entering more comps. I wish could say there's one simple method. More what you find simpliest and effecitive Enter and forget would be great. Lots of small decisions where to concernate your time and effort and bound to be a few lessons along the way. Your challenge is how to have fun with them. :)And as @surferboy83 has shown entering comps can be an adventure. Not just from the trips won also the competition itself can be an adventure whether you win or lose. If motivates you to push your bounarys to be a bit of a "git" and have a bit of fun along the way then go for it. :)@suferboy83 If haven't already done so when's the "fun with comps" youtube being posted?
18 Aug 2:26 PM
@lemond sounds like a great idea. China was great fun. Came home to another win too. I'll post it up soon as well. Cheers

Hi @adminThe surveys don't load for me. I've only tried two as they fall off my screen when I come back to the page and I don't want to miss the points.I get a "Sorry this page didn't load but it is out problem not yours" type of message.
10 Aug 6:41 PM
@admin For @Di_D my only question would be what type of device/Operating System/browser was using incase the issue is related to the browser etc. I haven't tried doing the surveys via my Ipad. I've only been doing them via the PC/windows 10 Chrome. Most likely the admin whould know that from any logs. :)
11 Aug 7:19 AM
They worked for me yesterday - should have said (sorry).
13 Aug 6:18 PM
I tried to do this same survey with another company but I had the same problem. I think the researchers are looking for a particular bank with a particular demographic.
08 Aug 7:19 PM
'interesting surveys' .. first 2 are no go since I don't have kids.. 3rd one because I don't have much money ... hmm
08 Aug 10:44 PM
@Lemond do miss them sometimes if I give myself a day or two away from email
10 Aug 2:28 PM
A lot of these surveys have quotas and limits and expire within 3 days. You're best to do them as soon as you see it or you will be screened out.
10 Aug 6:49 PM
@admin hi! I know, it's not always possible to be online all day and check for surveys and comps as soon as they are published
08 Aug 6:33 PM
Has there been an update with Surveys notifications now appearing for members? @admin I like the idea that can easily see if got surverys uncompleted instead of going to the emails. It would be great to have a log of compbux earned from surverys or combux awaiting to be awarded if it takes time to receive them.
10 Aug 2:31 PM
Thanks for the feedback. CompBux log is coming soon. You will soon be able to earn points entering competitions :) Points will always be instantly awarded as long as the survey redirects back to the competitions site.

Suggestion for a blog post: The Art of losing gracefullyIT Unleashed announced on Facebook that they were cancelling their August giveaway due to the actions of a person who did not win one of the giveaways. I have seen this happen for other businesses who become disillusioned after being the subject of attack and it seems to be getting more frequent.Businesses don't have to give anything away. They do it to raise their profile and, frankly, there are other ways to do this with fewer headaches.Perhaps there should be an new etiquette - one where we remember to thank the business, particularly on facebook, for the opportunity even if we don't win. Where we congratulate the winner. Perhaps a "like" on the announcement post.I know everyone here is likely to be someone that already do these sorts of things and understand that the relationship with these businesses needs to remain positive, so everyone enjoys it, but perhaps we need to lead by example.
08 Aug 10:02 AM
I am not a fan of facebook competitions, they are too public. I always email a thanks and if I get a phone call almost cry with thanks and appreciation :)
08 Aug 5:48 PM
@KittyKat65 I agree with Facebook competitons are too public with one issue when you win may get"fan" messages. I recall my first Facebook win too well. Something that should be a celebration can get distressing when participants get nasty they didn't win. That was for a random draw. It's increasingly hard to limit yourself to non social media competitons as promoters tend to push various social media to increase exposer. Overall thou if trying to avoid the limelight once you win most times your anonymity is gone. I recall one facebook post for a comp which had the winners name on a big check. Hmm I noticed the name didn't match their Facebook profile. When you win enough and put yourself out there its hard to remain anonymous even with "fake" profiles etc.The competition wasn't run on Facebook it was a in person type comp however they published the winner on Facebook.
08 Aug 6:14 PM
@Comp_chick Still think if it's a big enough issue to warrent blocking do that. Will save all the dramas. Also avoids any temptation getting drawn into it. If they are that persistent enough to create fake profiles to continue harassment the best advice is not respond back and just meticalliously log all correspondence. Then if left with no option there are legal options. It's not something you really want and to resort to. Trust me it can be quite stressful. For those thinking that a fake profile will make them anoymous thereare various methods for unmasking the individual. Yeah you try hiding your IP and chuck it through a onion router (TOR) etc however with some clever staticial analysis of Facebook may uncover the indivual. The best advice "own" your comments on social media and think first.

I don't get newsletters either or information of new competitions. I don't recall ever getting anything from this site regarding updates etc.
04 Aug 1:38 PM
I get an email every few day. No bonus points last month (unless I missed that email) but the month prior there was a bonus 30 points in one of the emails.As mentioned above perhaps write to the email and asked to be added if your not getting emails :)Hope this helps

but there are lost thread which claiming that site like http://filehippo.com or https://www.downloadwab.com are little suspicious. even i think downloadwab is much better because they are not selling any crack software but what filehippo have download file on their own server which looks doubt full

Whats the best way to search for competitions on Facebook
02 Aug 8:52 PM
Theres some great groups, if you look up "australian mum competition & review club" I can send you a list.
02 Aug 9:44 PM
That would be great
03 Aug 2:46 PM
@bukfizz just check out any of the comping groups like the winners one and then hmmm you could "stalk"/trawl through some compers FB profiles. That should keep you busy.A lot of the Australian Facebook comps get well circulated. It's probably how a lot end up on this site. :)After a while you will buld up your own feed of promoters the more FB comps you enter. That might come in handy around XMAS time for the next flood of FB comps.
01 Aug 6:06 PM
Did anyone else only get 1 guess in the guessing game when should have been 2
02 Aug 1:33 PM
@Lemond Got a reply back just now to say they are fixing this issue today
02 Aug 4:33 PM
I got two guess entries today :)

Hi everyone, Hope it's ok to post here but just wondering if anyone has a spare moment and wouldn't mind please voting for a photo entry in a competition, would be very much appreciated thank-you... It's on the Hisense Australia Facebook page bit.ly/SeeTheIncredible, search in the competition gallery for 'Jennifer Swift'.The entries with the most votes get to the finals, then a judge picks the winner. (Don't usually enter voting competitions - hate asking for votes!). Thank-you :)

18 Jul 10:29 AM
@Anna2077 yes, I did. I donated the win to a mate. He got a spiffy customised suit and handmade leather shoes out of it. I was shouted a beer. Lol
18 Jul 10:30 AM
Congrats, hope it's a good read @RebeccaElizabethD
18 Jul 11:30 AM
@toxicgherkin oh you are a good kind man and you were taken for a ride :-( Now I know why we never saw the photo :-)
09 Jul 4:12 AM
@admin Here's an idea for the guessing game to "encouraging/entince" the vast number of "missing in action"/non active members. Pinch a few compbux from the guessing game and spread it to 2nd, 3rd etc (ie. bump them up so can cash out more easily). That way those members might get the hint. :)Then again the competition for the leader board might become a touch tougher.

thanks... not sure I'm properly back though! lol I keep forgetting to come back. Life has just gotten far too busy to do the daily comping. Hopefully I can find some time and get back into it.
04 Jul 9:11 PM
I hate when pages choose their winner and then delete their post.On Everyday Gourmet Facebook page I went to check who won and post disapearedIt was for a Tefal Cook 4 Me(I don't think they even chose a winner)
03 Jul 5:11 PM
I had about 6 competitions saved, they weren't expiring for a while, today only one remains.. what happened to them? can they please be restored as I'm yet to enter them.
03 Jul 4:07 PM
Bring back the comments link below the competitions lists. It was a quck way of highlighting an issue for a comp listed for members. Or does no one pay attention to those?I think saw a comp listed today that the promoters link was showing as already ended.
04 Jul 6:09 AM
I liked them, if I found something in T&C's I thought important I'd always leave a little comment
02 Jul 8:14 AM

The ad on the left has got to go.. it's too long and I'm not interested in overseas implants, dating women or anything else it's flogging.
14 Jul 1:47 AM
@Anna2077 lmao. I wouldn't expect thouse offensives adds to appear on this site. That's the root of my point regarding offensive/inappropriate ads and another reason to block them.I think there are options the site may provide to Google to tailour the type of ads dished out according to interest groups. From from memory the ads themselves have options not to display again and provide a reason why which taliour the ads dished out to you. If ony were options for the google ads display only for a selection of interests or don't display at all. Looks like Facebook mobil app is going to added ads. Just what we all need to consume mobile data allowances. http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-40592427Regarding ads if you hate them so much can check out https://saveoursbs.org/ and least keep our Goveernment broadcasters free of unwanted ads. :)
14 Jul 2:46 AM
@Anna2077 Your "browsing" history can determine what ads are displayed. Possibly been redirected by a site visted to an unwanted link at some point why the "browsing" is in quotes. It could be a number of factors what ads are dished out. eg From googles perspective could who pays the most apart from your interests. :)One forum just quickly google. https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=12112352 which gives some users examples regarding ads dished out. Argh I might be getting ads for adblockers if hadn't disabled them.
14 Jul 1:59 PM
@Lemond I am fully aware of that.. then again the only things I do on this browser is comps..
30 Jun 1:20 AM
Congrats @moreofachance and happy birthday month :)
01 Jul 5:18 AM
Was the forum font changed last couple of days? Or I'm just getting used to it. It appears might of been improved. lmao.
01 Jul 12:39 PM
@Lemond looking to same to me but I think I used to it now so may have been a subtle change
01 Jul 6:46 PM
@Smalot11 Yeh it could of just been too early for me or had the browser set to a larger then 100% zoom.
28 Jun 8:27 PM
Can someone help please.The last three days when someone replies to me comments on Facebook I don't any notification. I checked my settings and there's nothing changed. But if someone tags me or likes a post of mine then I get notified. I really need the replies so I can see if I won something or not. Apparently others have this problem too. But some don't. I have reported the problem with facebook but nothing has happened.
28 Jun 9:04 PM
Happens to me too, seems to be a glitch with Facebook I think. I found sometimes it helps to turn on individual notifications for the actual post. You can do this be the drop down arrow. Hope this helps and good luck :)
28 Jun 9:42 PM
But why me and not to anyone else's account. It seems to have suddenly happen as well. I facebook searched Notifications not working and there are a few others with this problem. Is there anyway to get it back working again. If I turn on post notifcations I get notified for every persons comment on a post. It's annoying
29 Jun 10:16 AM
Sorry, I don't have any other answers :( Let me know if you figure it out

I did the Today show selfie and 25 words less to win a TV.But when I clicked submit the page just kept loading for 5 minutes and so I kept clicking submit and then it went to the Today show homepage.I'm worried my entry didn't go through or my picture didn't upload. J don't want to re-enter as it says one entry per person. But is pressing the submit button again will that corrupt the entry
21 Jun 9:53 PM
I decided to re submit and I got thank you the form was submitted successfullyLast time I got directed to the home page
23 Jun 1:28 PM
@Compbee Great and thanks I've got around to submitting an entry. Good Luck :)

21 Jun 4:53 PM
@bukfizz I didn't watch last night. I think I saw it during the add break towards the end on Sunday. It's a bit sneaky when they place them during the ad break. Some shows do that if televised Australian wide and have a state based comp where adverts are local. Usually for CODE words in TV comps I skip to around 35-45 minutes.
