Feedback / Suggestions
I am thankful for all the comps Admin adds but wish they'd take the extra couple of seconds to actually read the comps they post so that they don't say "all states" when it has to be picked up in Perth etc, just like cheesecake shop comp. When short on time I actually quickly look at the bottom of each comp post to see which states can enter and just automatically enter thinking the info is correct where often it isn't. Please Admin could you only say "all states" when it really is all states. Thank you :)

This is the jacket I won from The Epicentre for an international competition. An Arc'teryx Men's Cerium LT Hoody with price tag of ek 299 pounds/$500 AUD. Might come in handy today it's a bit fresh this morning.@Mamma :)
14 Jan 8:14 PM
Great jacket, congratulations!
16 Jan 1:20 PM
Snazzy mate Congratulations!
16 Jan 2:36 PM
Thanks all :) Will come in handy for winter or sooner. Now just need something to wear with it :)
13 Jan 6:48 PM
Received an email. 'hi thank you for entering our comp.. You didn't win but please find he discount voucher inclosed to shop at any of our stores on online'... Would have been a good first win for the year ...
14 Jan 8:31 AM
I wonder if anyone wins at all in these comps and wonder if they are just promotional advertising to send out discount vouchers to entice people to shop on their on line store. I get them all the time.
14 Jan 12:48 PM
@gemini69 was thinking same today. They only gave me 3 days to shop.Now to get linen that the voucher was for, I would have had to add $150, plus would need a quilt cover and thats $250.Gave it a miss
13 Jan 11:32 AM
New to Instagram competitions, how do "tag 3 mates" I don't as yet have anyone to do this, even if I knew how. Please help!!
13 Jan 1:10 PM
Just use the @ sign, followed by their insta name, just like Facebook.
14 Jan 10:02 AM
Hi, you can tag me if you want @fivesmurfs

12 Jan 7:40 PM
so I'm not sure if I'm annoyed or flattered. I entered a FB comp and thankfully was a winner of a oneof 25 double movie passes (so yeah that makes me happy) , But i noticed that someone else used my exact entry (cut and pasted) right below me just 2 hour after i wrote my 25 words or less answer....sadly they won too. Seriously can't they think of their own answer
13 Jan 10:02 AM
@Andieharrie...so true ;)
13 Jan 10:40 AM
lol, thats just stupid. tell the company doing fb comp, they copied your answer, thats not fair
14 Jan 2:09 AM
their account looks so weird - but sometimes better not to complain - i've seen so many companies that get sick of people complaining about the competition their running and then they decide to not do any. Check out how many christmas comps there were this year compared to last year. So many companies didn't do 12 days of giveaways this year when they did last year.
11 Jan 10:12 PM
I keep getting emails saying congrats you won 500 from coles orfree spins no pokiesI click unsubscribe but they keep bugging me.The problem is my phone gets a notification whenever one of these emails come in and as its get in the primary section of outlook
13 Jan 7:58 AM
No, is there a way you can deselect the notifications so you don't receive the notifications on your phone?
15 Jan 4:26 PM
If I get those I don't press UNSUBSCRIBE as this can make it worse. You can either or both, Report it as SPAM through your ISP or set up a Rule in your Email, so when these come in they go straight to your JUNK email box. Every few weeks, I just press DELETE JUNK BOX.
16 Jan 8:20 AM
They go to my junk e-mail to and I have been unsubscribing and its been getting less and less. So sick of getting rubbish e-mails even in my junk box.

I've Won | Glad Australia - Win 1 of 10 $50 VISA gift cards!
A small win thanks to Glad, and a facebook one which I usually never enter, still comes in handy and grateful for the first win of the year.! Took my 4 day Ayres Rock prize in December and it was fantastic, we had complimentary champers on both flights- thanks QANTAS and the accommodation at Voyages the resort and two included tours were wonderful. An incredible prize!

13 Jan 8:38 PM
Always nice to know that Somebody actually wins these things (and that is what my friends tell me). Also the 25 WOL also keeps the old brain ticking over for a unique/quirky/winning answer, and the odd win keeps me keen. Volumes of junk mail is a problem though, really do need to set up a separate account- one day!
11 Jan 9:49 AM
Was someone asking here how long to expect the Eftpos win to arrive? Finally got one today in the mail still expecting another which won a couple of days after that one. The postie and courier were busy this morning. :) 299 pounds jacket from the UK arrived, won exactly a week ago, wines from qld won just before Christmas, and Eftposwin won a month ago. Amazing the bigger the parcel and further away the quicker it arrives.
12 Jan 10:22 AM
awesome post a pic of jacket.
13 Jan 6:51 AM
Well Done my friend!
09 Jan 9:50 AM
Geez ... the UK marketing guy is stupid enough to post himself using his mobile phone whilst driving ... illegal there as it is here I think
09 Jan 12:51 PM
Lol, Have to say I don't think 'marketing in your car' is a safe option for yourself or others while your driving either!

random cool things
12 Jan 5:44 PM
Agree with @Lemond regarding "Anything practically can use or urgently require"! For me, my wish list 'top 5' would be:1. Cash or gift cards for essentials (Coles, Woolworths, Target etc)2. A year's worth of bills paid (E.g., Power, rent, petrol, groceries)3. Car4. Washing machine5. PC/laptopOn a terrible losing streak for a while, so hoping for a better year in 2017! Best of luck!
08 Jan 6:18 PM
I am getting extremely frustrated with the daily bonus points .It is now 5 months since I have got over 5 points and usually get 4 points max. Does not seem to matter what time I do it .Any tips ?
12 Jan 4:02 PM
@shtooff yes that finishes my 2 days in a row over 6 Today was 1 again !
12 Jan 4:07 PM
@Lemond Well that finishes my 2 days of over 6 back to 1 again today. Clearly I am never to be in the top 3 even be lucky to make the top 50 once again ! No birthday this month so I just hope each week to win the guessing game.
13 Jan 8:36 PM
Yay !Another 1 today !

@toxicgherkin :) Argh ISP picked a nice day to disconnect the internet on a public holiday! For some reason they didn't process a payment. Their system must of been a bit hung over. There's a pun there somewhere. lol

Tips & Tricks
Hello everyone, I've only joined this group a month and a half ago but not won anything as yet.I was wondering how to get the best out of getting competition points. I know about guessing comp everyday and viewing all comps but what else is there need to know that can help me out.Happy new year ?
01 Jan 11:17 PM
@toxicgherkin Thanks for passing the buck. IT helpline is temporarily down for the public holiday, Happy New Year Wondercom!You forgot patience, luck may not happen overnight and usually occurs when you least expect it. How long has it taken to win the Leaderboard @toxicgherkin? lol :)
01 Jan 11:36 PM
For the leaderboard competition what @toxicgherkin mentioned is good advice on how to check for competitions you may have missed. On the rare occasion they may be posted with an earlier date or once in a while you might get competitions posted up late which expire the same day. I usually check late and get in early for the guessing game as it's first to guess the weekly number. X fingers one day will guess it right!For winning competitions in general. Well it's either enter as many as possible or find a creative forte. The creative one's are a good way to go if got a passion for a product or promoter. I've notice a few contacts do quite well in that area with some amazing creative work. It's still tough to win however there's plenty of creative competitions out there which generally less people enter.Your Facebook feed can be a good source of comps either built up over time from entering competitions or through comping contacts. If adding comping contacts on Facebook my advice is be cautious it can be a minefield. Could write a book about the pros and cons on that subject. I'm sure you'll get some jumping to "lend" a hand. If you're lucky you might find some nice ones. For finding off the radar competitions with better chances. It takes time to build up those lovely junk/subscription emails which may contain competitions overlooked by most. I hope you created a separate email account for competitions. I tend to source my competitions from a variety of sources and methods. Competitions.com.au is one of many Australian competitions sites. What is displayed each day on this site is a small fraction of competitions out there.I tend to focus on international competitions which sometimes take a bit of hunting down. I know where to find the Aussie ones they get shared around enough. At lot of those I find aren't posted on Aussie sites or even international comping sites. There's a world of competitions out there. :)On that note I need to catch up on my regular first day of the month international competitions. Good Luck.
02 Jan 1:10 AM
Only other things for the Leaderboard your chances are a lot greater for your birthday month with the additional bonus. About a 50/50 chance for the top 3.Also don't miss a day, statistically can almost forget about the top 3 thou might still have a chance for the top 50 for extra entries towards the guessing game for the following month. :)Good Luck :)
30 Dec 8:31 AM
Lets hope 2017 is the year of something big enough of the small wins
13 Jan 10:51 AM

Nice hamper from Dolmio arrived, as a festive gesture. The Dolmio PEPPER HACKERs (x4) are on their way in the New Year, as the Christmas Elves have been inordinately busy apparently!

20 Dec 11:12 PM
@fourleaf Thanks it's nice to know there's a bit of support out there. In the end I didn't finish off today's task as a good friend dropped by. Realistically had to do every day of the tasks and think missed the first day. Was hoping to bridge that gap with a few referrals. X fingers for the next PC competition there's plenty out there :) Merry Christmas.
21 Dec 3:27 PM
Merry Christmas to you as well @Lemond and also to all the other compers...may you all have some luck in 2017

21 Dec 10:05 AM
@Lemond thats great! been trying to win eftpos no luck yet. lets hope big $5000
21 Dec 11:34 AM
@Mamma it seems to be the competition that keeps on giving. I was bit surprised I've won twice in a few days. Was a bit slow on the uptake. I got hint from @bj74 to finally getting around to entering. It all helps and the best prize as can use it however. I could definitely do with $5000. A washing machine and new pc would be the on top of the list. Good Luck!
21 Dec 11:39 PM
@Lemond mine would be clear credit card debt and pay bills . sad but that would be it. Best OF LUCK
18 Dec 8:12 PM
Scoopon - umm, iPad Mini..? awaiting promoter's notification email....unless I have a doppleganger...
20 Dec 4:39 PM
@fourleaf most use all the agencies that I use, but I'm not 20 but its the lies and the rudeness that got to me today.Not sure who to blame, agency often fibs but I think this time it's the company. I was told it till the 30th, now the agency was told it's only till the 30th.Since I was rejected this time I can never apply to this company again.. that gets me as well. This way they are closing the door to a lot of people. Right now 4, but she does it each and every time...Plus she shut the door for me to use this agency again. If I am not suitable that's fine, but no need to be this nasty.
20 Dec 8:55 PM
@Anna2077 so sorry. The New Year will undoubtedly bring new opportunities. Carpe Diem, 'they' say, Stuff that! Carpe EVERYTHING! Wishing you and yours the happiest of times as this year wraps up. Exciting things ahead!
21 Dec 9:10 AM
@toxicgherkin thank you! All the best to you and your family, 2017 has to be awesome...Sorry was Debbie downer yesterday but got hit hard & neararest and dearest told me to deal with it like I always do.... some days it's impossible.
17 Dec 4:41 PM
What's up with these new "profiles" promoting their wares?
17 Dec 6:32 PM
@pizzaman111 @admin They suspiciously don't seem like genuine profiles. If they want free promotion they could place a featured a competition. :)Seehttp://www.competitions.com.au/create-a-competition/http://www.competitions.com.au/add-a-competition/
17 Dec 10:27 PM
I was only joking
18 Dec 5:23 AM
And I was only suggesting they might get more effective promotion if they featured a competition. :) It seems only a small percentage of members actually read the forum. I'm sure we could all squeeze in doing a couple more comps before Christmas or is everyone need a comping holiday?With a few similar profiles appearing recently it's possible they might be all bots. The posts appeared to be formal and similar bit like my spam emails.

@Lemond started upon it tonight - delicious. If you're quick, we'll save a hunk for you... ;) ....though my 18 yo lad has descended upon the house this eve, so, good luck with that! Midnight, muchies!..and then some. He eats me out of house and home! The 15 yo, by comparison, is a sparrow! :( lol
21 Dec 2:20 AM
@toxicgherkin Argh missed out the quick and the dead. Caught up with a good mate tonight had fish and chips. Something haven't done in a while. Well... guess what I've won the eftpos again. I think it's a new email. They must of seen my bank balance. Sigh thou says may take 4-6 weeks to deliver. On Friday it said 10 days so expecting that one soon along with more wine.
21 Dec 6:45 AM
@Lemond yay! Congratulations.
11 Dec 2:36 PM
bah humbug my daily score has been under 5 for the last week.... so much for the merry xmas ... still winning competition remains at world low. Nothing in the last few months.
11 Dec 1:21 AM
@themuzzer Welcome :)Well regarding whatever the your issue is with the Facebook winners group just get the best from it. It's not the complete list of competition results, just a handy group for being notified if you've had a win.Agree with @Alittlebitoffun it's an extremely helpful group especially as a lot of promoters don't tag the winner. The group also can be a resource for sorting out competition issues. Some group members have the expertise and professionalism to investigate issues such as prizes not being sent or questionable judging of creative competitions etc. In the past allegedly the group it's had it's dramas. It was one of reasons I joined as curious about what the fuss was all about to judge for myself. I've had great insight into the voluntary contribution the group provides. You have to understand the ones administrating the group volunteer their expertise and are balancing the Christmas rush of competitions. Their patience might be a bit thin at this time of year. Overall I would say they conduct themselves in professional manner to resolve most issues. Why might it be closed?I guess some conversations would be regarding questionable managed competitions. i.e. not rewarding prizes, questionable judging for WOL, fake/scam competitions etc. Probably wouldn't want to have those debates available to various promoters. I'm not sure why they initially made it private. Maybe it was to slow down the trolls?At times passionate topics come up with various opinions. I just hope that whatever action is taken for an issue it's done in a cautious and diplomatic manner. Jumping to assumptions can end badly which may reflect adversely on all compers. Hmm @themuzzer just joined sounds like someones trolling. Maybe an existing member that doesn't want to own their views. :) Hopefully it's not regarding one member recently been given the flick. From what I briefly read they have the opportunity to sort to out if they wish.Merry Christmas
11 Dec 1:59 AM
@Alittlebitoffun No surprise they deleted the thread. Why I didn't post there.I did still wanted to ask @LuckyNicky if they had written a blog on surviving the Christmas 12 days of "Joy" period.
11 Dec 3:17 PM
I'm honestly getting slaughtered out there lol I have no system and am missing so many daily competitions. I can't keep up, between work and my two little ones, I barely have time to Comp on a normal day.I've had a few small wins, but nothing to write home about. How are you going? You keeping up ok? Would love to hear any suggestions you may have on keeping up lol
13 Dec 10:38 PM
@Alittlebitoffun lol Yeh if only I had prepared. The Christmas tsunami has caused me to reevaluate my organisational of competitions. You might of seen the results today in various groups. :) Been organizing things as part of relaxing of entering them.Well for the daily 12 days of "joy" I created a page to quickly click on them all. Gee reminds me I better to todays lol. It expanded to somewhere around 30-40 at least daily ones. lolWon enough wine for Christmas with a couple of wins. One very nice wines hamper with candles and poster. The La Boheme posters arrived yesterday they look amazing. :)
