@admin I've sent a few messages regarding transfer of Combux to PayPal which have gone unanswered and/or unseen. When will this be retified please?

If anyone else is experiencing this "issue" leave a comment below.

I'm still waiting, no reply, has not even read all my messages, although I am using my cousins paypal as mine was compromised last year and I will never use it again, mmm, still a good site for the mad comps, patience is the virtue :)

@moreofachance Patience is a virtue. Keeps you out of trouble while things sort themselves out.

I have almost infinite patience. Think cricket umpiring and one match batted by day and half 328 deliveries for 43 runs. So patience with a pinch of stubbornness. Lmao

I think the site has had a server move that wasn't smooth. I got a response on FB. Maybe try there as well.

Finally I'm out of my misery as my PC died today. Long long overdue. So... last months win is going to come in handy. Damn one finger typing on an iPad until can get a new PC.

Won a couple of pounds one regular 'sponsor'. Hmm I need to pick some lucky lotto numbers from lottoland U.K.

A warning re PuraChoice washing machine competition on Facebook ...

The competition is layered ie there is more than one step, three in fact, and they don't tell you that in the opening step.

1. Like, comment, share the Facebook page
2. You get a private message to say now you have to enter your name and email
3. Then you get another message and email to say now you have to buy a product and upload a photo

If you are happy doing that, all is good.

But I have a dislike for being asked to jump through extra hoops that were not made clear at the beginning enabling them to harvest contact information when you may be disinclined to complete all the tasks.

@Lemond thanks, I just noticed that earlier today. It looks like it was announced late as I received the email today as well. Now to win something in an external comp as I haven't won anything since movie tickets in Mar 2016!! I don't enter a lot of comps, maybe 40-60 a month but I would have thought that something will come my way soon.

Tips & Tricks

How do you check back whether you have win anything? especially on facebook if they just announce your name and expect you to contact them yourself? and I actually don't have any comping friend on facebook :(

indriasun

30 Sep 4:36 PM

@Lemond Thank you for your tips. You're very very helpful.

Lemond

30 Sep 6:14 PM

@indriasun Doh Richmond won by tooooooo much. Was right on the money for one comp at half time. :(

I think all I read was tips, god I've definately got footy tipping on the brain atm. lmao.

The one thing searching for your name won't find is when the promoter posts an image or video for winner announcements. If someone has shared it to the group usually they will put in the subject "Congratulations XYZ". If members keep to that standard I find easy to spot in the subject headings for my FB email notifications.

I've Won

I've won a $100 coles card. Finally the end of my Facebook comp drought since January.
Provisionally appears the my stars have aligned with a Steven Bradbury effort for the leader board. Contgrats to the other leader board winners. I thought be extremely close finish. Woot Woot.

Now X fingers for Richmond to win by around 9 points for the footy tipping. Go Tigers!!!!

Lemond

30 Sep 8:47 PM

@Smalot11 :)
I don't think much luck with allllllllllllllllll the footy tipping comps I've done over the last week.

Argh I'm footy tipped out must of done about 40+ of them. Bit like doing all the XMAS ones, at least they only go for a few days. You need to on the ball or end up only left with picking enormous margins as most where first to guess closest. If could do that over again would be bit more organised how to locate them.

Damn one was for for $250 cash with only ONE Richmond guess. I was spot on at the half time margin if that counts :( Just had to decide higher or lower then that one guess. Hmmm still can hope they don't claim it in time. "wishful' thinking

So if do a bit of leg work and hunt around you can find the occassional very decent odds off the main comping radar. IMO my impression most of the Aussie compers on FB rarely do any as see the same ones circulating about. Really it's only the first couple times a promoter runs some competitions they are low key after that they become known.

Won $9.33 today from Draftstars free entry comp to add to my run of cash wins. Along with approximatelyr 10,000 winners, virtually everyone that entered that today won. :)

01 Oct 11:27 PM

Lemond

02 Oct 12:47 AM

@surferboy83 Thanks Yeah small wins, I'll have to keep rattling that tin can for luck. :)

Should be another $10 tonight from Draftstars from the free entry comp. Appears you require a balance of $20 to cash out easily, x fingers should just be over that now. Its been nice weekend with 4 wins with either coles/cash :)

indriasun

30 Sep 1:30 AM

I've won $500 Tixstar voucher yay! I love this site and have won quite a bit :) Do you think it's ethical to sell the prize? I'm willing to part with it for $300.

indriasun

30 Sep 12:34 PM

Thanks all, @Lemond thanks for your advice, yeah I find it is not easy to sell things and I'm actually quite afraid of other's judgment when I get it for free but trying to make money out of it. I can see that some people don't think it's acceptable although I believe it's my right to do so, moreover there's some effort involved. I can see that this Tixstar voucher can be given/sold. Let me know if any of you wants to get this $500 voucher for $300. Thanks all. https://www.tixstar.com.au/

Lemond

30 Sep 12:54 PM

@indriasun God I wouldn't worry, at times can be heated debate. When you get to understand the various reasons you can't be too quick to judge. You'll probably find those judging were eyeing off that prize etc :). I wish you could pick and choose what you want to win it's a bit of a lucky dip. Stick your hand in and could be keys to a new car or box of tissues.

Personally I keep (most times) to comps with prizes want to win and lately more focused on cash/grocery vouchers. Occassional some eye candy might lure me off the that path. So overall if win the odds are something really looking for. I pass over like 90% of comps saves wasted time checking back on those.

Reminds me I need to find someone from South Australia or wants to win a holiday 5 nights accomodation without airfares, if it hasn't closed and withdraw my entry. Lasted I checked had few entries. I think if still open be the 2pm i.e. the first bounce of the footy. :)

Great interview. It seems to be getting harder and harder to win these days as everyone is doing it. If you think your entry was the best it seems the less likely to win. I've entered thinking that my entry is fantastic but win on the ones that I don't think are very good. I don't know what the judges are thinking or what they are looking for. Most entries like Rowan's are pretty common these days though as most people do/say the same thing.

@lemond my last win was a good one exactly one year ago...I went to the Melbourne cup on a Carnival Cruise was a wonderful trip, but not a thing have I won in 2017 :(

Lemond

27 Sep 1:04 PM

@KittyKat65 Wow nice one. Sounds like would of been an awesome day. You could use that wonderful day as inspiration for other comps to turn your luck around. :)

That's one great thing about competitions you get the chance to experience things you wouldn't usually do or afford. If really lucky win something urgently need.

Well one great win or a whole lot of small ones.... Hmm hard choice depends on the prize, thou I do prefer winning cash or grocery vouchers lately. This year seem to winning small cash wins. I think would of won around $250 cash from a half dozen comps since Januaary so nothing to complain about. Cash is always king and a nice prize however small.

For why in a drought? IMO depends on how many competitions entering and what things specially looking to win etc. As a few compers have pointed out it seems increasingly difficult to win. It really depends where and your looking for finding competitions and what prizes liked to win. On Facebook for example all the Aussie compers are one degree of separation from each other. Mainly linked via a few dozen with major comping contact lists (for the tagging comps or likes etc). They get shared around very quicklly and your chances get greatly diminished. The pros and cons of even slightly attached to those groups.

Sometimes a random explore to find prizes of interest that might be off main comping radar, might help improve your chances. I should get in the habit of checking for more local comps. Or you can concerntrate on a forte for creative entry comps. Ideally if got a forte and also find off the radar comps your chances start looking great. Some compers do exceptional well just focusing on their niche creative competitions.

X fingers for a decent win by XMAS.

Good Luck.:)

@Lemond - And anyone else interested, 1000 Comps update

A few weeks ago I stumbled across a video that has inspired me to enter 1000 comps, hopefully in 50 days.
Day 16 today (29.8.17) I have managed to stick to 20 competitions a day. I am now finding it harder to get the 20 a day. Stats so far,

Comps entered - 320
Comps Won - numbers 41, 56, 143 and 225
Prizes - 41 - EB Games - DVD Bundle prize pack - Twitter comp
56 - UnityWater - Family pass to KiteFest - Facebook Comp
143 - Max TV - 2 Tickets to Placebo - 25WOL
225 - Woombye Cheese - Cheese Pack - Web entry - best dad's joke
Comps still to be drawn - 214

So far so good, and I like to thank everyone on this forum for your ongoing support. Hoping you have all had some wins this week too

Lemond

08 Oct 8:47 PM

@Smalot11 Well nothing rings of confidence from the email, youtube channel, twitter and facebook found searching for their email and google etc. So I'm highly unlikely to risk paying the delivery cost. For starters the delivery cost given probably won't cover shipping if its USA to Australia. Aussuming USA as that what's info is provided in their youtube details.

I might play along a bit to see what can uncover. Also email gleam etc to see what they think. If indeed a scam gleam should be notified for starters.

The reads:
Congratz! you are the winner drawed from my "PC Giveaway If you cant pay 60$ for shipping via paypal i have to redraw and select another winner sorry! Contact me back when you can! SO we can sort things out and send you your new Product!

Nothing they give any idea who they are etc or more importantly and confidence it's nothing other then a SCAM.

Got a follow up email from them them to provide shipping details and they will cover any additional shipping costs. After paying the $60 to paypal. The first thing came to mind $60 couldn't cover the weight of a PC being shipped from the USA. I've consider that a few times for legitament comps. Also they asked wouldn't I like to know the PC details. Argh you think they would of sent that in the winning email. Of course would of like to know.

So I've sent Gleam an email regarding it. Wow got an almost instanteous response:

We do ever recommend paying for shipping, it's most likely a scam based on the data you've provided.
I would ask for receipts first, we'll look at the account on our end and take the appropriate action.

I think they meant we don't ever recommend etc.

Also done the same for YouTube.

Lesson is don't tease me with winning a PC LMAO.

Trailblazer comp? I think the codeword is still JOURNEY as the comp was meant to end on the 27th but now extended. Good luck :)
