Just did an extensive survey on gambling on poker machines and spent a lot of thought and spent about 20 minutes on it and finished it in total and was then told I didnt qualify, good way to get opinions and not pay anything for it I guess.
that happens quite often, I and probably many others have told the site admin about this issue
This has happened to me over last couple of days also. I even did the online chat that it says to do if you don't receive the points but haven't heard yet (and that was originally from 13th Oct, plus 1 today). Did you also notice how much the survey points have decreased by over past couple of months?
similar has happened to me on many occasions
How do I access the 24 hour guessing game, it does not appear on my guessing game page. I didn't know it existed until now.
Catseyes, have you tried to scroll down on the Guessing Game page? That's where you'll see notice of upcoming guessing games, with dates.
@toxicgherkin Thank you for that, I must need new glasses.
Twice in the past week including today I have not received the newsletter. Checked spam and junk files but not there. You chat line has not been answered for over a month now and is never attended. Waste of time having it at all. Difficult to enter the guessing game withoit receiving the newsletter so I dont bother with surveys now either.
Just a suggestion. Admin of this site should insist it be a mandatory requirement for companies to have written details regarding when and where the competition results will be published and who the winners are. After forking out over $70 purchasing a product (required for entry) it would be nice at least to have some kind of proof it was a legit competition.
Hello @she-oak! most purchase competitions are legitimate and are governed under strict rules and T&Cs. Sometimes there is a delay before actual winners are drawn. And yes some companies get a little slack in announcing the winners on their site. Maybe contact the company via their 'contact us' screen and ask the question.@admin kindly find and list the competitions but unfortunately don't have any say in how the comp is run by the company. Wishing you the best of luck
@fourleaf Thanks for responding. I have contacted them, twice. Once to the particular outlet I purchased the item from and the other to their head office. Neither one of them have responded. The competition closed around a month ago. It's just disheartening when there are so many scams these days because you never know if you're next when it comes to being ripped off. Anyway I guess it's out of admins control. Thanks for taking the time to respond.
@she-oak, very disheartening for an expensive entry.....if you can find the T&Cs that is usually a wealth of information including whether they have outsourced the competition to a marketing company who will be across it. Keep trying and if necessary make some loud noises on their social media accounts or if you feel strongly enough fill out a form on the ACCC web site. Don't be disheartened, there are a lot of good, well run comps out there.... :)
Hi, @she-oak. Do you recall the name of the Promoter/Store/Competition 'name'?
It was for a Nokia camera and the promoter was ShopMyLocal. By the time I paid for the bottle of Glen Grant scotch (which by the way I don't even drink alcohol at all - I gave it to my sister) and also with postage it came to a little over $70. I just feel a little ripped off. It's not the fact that I didn't win. I just like to see that the prizes offered were honoured. I've been entering competitions all my life and I've never come across one where the winners were not published. Maybe it's what they do now. I would never have normally entered a competition where I had to spend so much - especially for something useless to me (like alcohol) but the camera prize was so appealling. I am an amateur photographer and pensioner and around a year ago my house was broken into and ransacked and my camera was stolen. Like I said I was taken in by the possibility of winning a camera. I love entering competitions I just wish the promoters would do the right thing. Thanks @fourleaf and @toxicgherkin for responding
@she-oak I think this is the winners list?https://www.shopmylocal.com.au/promo/ggnikon
@toxicgherkin sorry, didn't see your reply!
How do you find out whom the winners are? For e.g. would like to find out who the winner was last Tues for the Bonds comp? ;-)
Hi, user_10157047537714177. I know of one competition/promotion winners announcement group on Facebook. It's membership-based. Free membership. Members announce winners here, from mostly Facebook and Instagram. Perhaps have a look, and if you'd like to join, send a request through to the moderator/s. Here's the detail:Competition Winners Australia - https://www.facebook.com/groups/428451857308064This can be handy as many promoters are no longer tagging winning entrants via social media competitions. In many cases the winners names are merely announced. This is where eagle-eyed group members might follow-up, and post the result/s. Hope this helps. Cheers.
Can't see a chat box anywhere and the contact form has vanished too,I redeemed on 14th August and haven't received..any ideas?
Hi, boocuddles60. There's an icon in the lower right of this Forum page. Looks like a stylised head and shoulders, in a circle. If you click on that, it should open a fresh chat session. I tried to attach an image of the icon but couldn't. Another glitch to be ironed out perhaps. Hope this helps. (Mac OS X, Opera as browser).
Thanks found it, sent message, no reply
i have been trying to redeem a giftcard for the last week and it keeps saying that it is going to be accessible within 24 hrs - 48 hrs.i have no response on the chat either anyone else having this problem
yes I have had pretty much the same thing - no response at all! I redeemed points over a week ago and nothing yet. contacted site via chat 2 times and no response as yet!
@wolverine its very frustrating , i havent got any emails or response back at all either
I have recently had a reply and the problem is fixed now - I would suggest try them again
keeps saying flexi gift card site is under maintenance and also you can't choose how much you want to redeem as it automatically goes to the highest points you have available
Apologies everyone, due to fraud, we've had to cap Flexi Card in recent times to ensure redemptions made are legitimate. We take fraud seriously and will be working on improving this system ASAP.
@admin sorry that the site has been misused/abused by certain individuals. Time to Spring Clean your subscribers list it sounds like, and have vetting protocols in place for new subscriber uptake. I'm sure you're on to it. Will be interesting to see the impact on the Guessing Game and the spread of winners. 'Some' seem to be awfully lucky...
has anyone had fb violation for posting a competition to win bikini or lingerer and get an account warning or is the admin of the group competitions doing this? because its happen in one group particular
Attencione, Competition.com.au is a fraudulent webside they don't pay out the redeems I am already missing 240 AUS.This webside is fake be carefully.
That has never been my experience, @Food-Hunter. You can always send a message to Support via the chat function.
Hi Food-Hunter.. I'm sorry, you and your 20 fake accounts are not welcome here. Our community is full of honest and genuine people and we do not appreciate your unethical participation.
@admin It is not illegal to have as much accounts as I want, but it is illegal to pay not out the redeems, Mr. cheater.
I've never had a problem in 8 yrs. Love it
@admin, we support you and your endeavours. Thanks for looking out for this comping community. :-)
I have not had any problems with redemption. This is not a fake website.
never been a problem getting pay outs or gift cards until now
I paid for a year membership but now I can't seem to log in anywhere...not sure what I am doing wrong?
@janiecaroline, are you thinking of another competition website? Here it's free to participate, and you were logged in when you posted this comment from last month. Is it all sorted now for you? Cheers.
Just wondering what has happened to the chat function. Entered a request June 11 and as yet no reply apart from a note to say We are not online. We will email you back.
I posted a question on Sunday and received my reply today, July 6th.
Hi, Just remebered to lot in as it seems I have not received any emails for months! I actually forgot about this site and I was previously a regular.Is there a reason why? Sometimes I thought I received too many emails I could not keep up - but just the opposite now. Previously I had found emails in my junk mail, but I have been checking that fairly regularly and nothing at all there either.Just noticed the website has been changed but not had a chance to look at it and use it yet.
The site has only been changed for about one week. I stopped getting emails too, but when I messaged them, I got emails within two hours.
Was wondering if there is anyway to see what numbers I entered in each weekly guessing game (like we used to always see) as I like to pick the same "lucky" numbers and I can never remember what they were LOL. (I was going to write them down but I can't see my numbers from before the site got updated). I also think the site is very modern now and colourful, really catches my eye. I preferred the Competition pages the way they were as they were much easier to see at a glance so we knew which days they were added etc.
woohoo thanks admin - I can now see my fave numbers that I've previously guessed.
Hi to all, love the new look Competitions.com.au web site, great, easy to navigate. We used to be able to score 5 points to click on the Newsletter, which I did, and again on the web site which I did but no 5 points, is it still active or not?
Hi,. Yes it's on the home page as the blue block..
New look! Slick. :-)
Got a nice email saying I won a $500 visa gift card. 25 words or less. Super stoked time for a new wetsuit!
Nice one, @surferboy83 !
Thanks mate @toxicgherkin
Awesome, enjoy! :)
Cheers @fourleaf :)
bj74 thanks heaps!
Mate,you've still obviously got the touch, congratulations bud
Trevsta just when I thought its been a long while and boom! Back in the game. Cheers
Is anyone else having trouble getting their daily Newsletter from Competitions.com.au? Asked support but still haven't got a reply after a week. I am receiving all my other emails so I don't know what is going on. Cheers Catseyes's
Have the daily emails with extra guessing game link and 5 bonus points stopped working again?
still getting them here
Thanks @admin for a bit of a Spring Clean of spam accounts. Much appreciated! :-)
All surveys seem to be not working wat so ever! Anyone else having issues?
Yes same for me - doesn't matter which one I try to do, doesn't go anywhere and just gives me the 5 points, very frustrating as I had 15 there all of a sudden and thought woohoo I might earn some points and then nothing :(
Yes i reported it the admin guys, so it might help if everyone that has had the same issue also report what has been happening
So who is entering Travel Comps? I am reading the T&Cs on these really carefully because I've seen some that you have to take before May 2020 & others before Sept 2020.
Is there anybody else who can't open the surveys anymore?
Since about 4 weeks I can't open the surveys and don't get the 5 points for non qualifying.
When I go to the redeem for gift cards page, Does the money eg $100 come from my cash or the Combus points I earn through doing surveys and guessing game and bonus points???Kay
Thank you Competitions for the 5,000 points this morning, it was so unexpected but lovely to receive.
Just did one survey and got no points for it, other than 5 points screened out and then did another one and then it said screened out, after answering heaps of questions on climate change. What's the go with that? So I've sat here for 20mins doing this and not getting the points. Geez!!!
I have fully completed 2 surveys today only to be told at the very end that I do not meet the requirements for the survey and was awarded only 5 points instead of the 110 that was listed for this. Not happy
I didn't qualify for a 3 minute survey - clearly aimed at smokers which I'm not - and didn't even get the non-qualifying category 5 CompBux. This system is 'buxted'!
I'm not receiving any emails from you. The last one was Tuesday 21st January. I've been doing what I can through Tuesday's email. I've checked my junk emails and nothing, what's going on? ????????????????????????????????????????????
Does anyone know of any other legit survey sites that I can join apart from Qmee and Vindale?
a fairly good survey site I go to is https://www.lifepointspanel.com/ (hope this helps!)

Anybody else not getting the daily email anymore?
@Zeur Not been getting them for quite some time now
Same here, no more emails, not sure why!
None since before xmas
The last one I received was on the 19th of December :/
update - just had my first newsletter in weeks (maybe it's back to normal now?)
I got one today 9 Jan 2020.
They stopped and then started up again but now seem to have stopped again. I haven't received one since Tuesday 21st January. Before that they were coming daily but they stopped for weeks over Xmas time. From early December until early January. Don't know what's happening, even their Facebook page isn't up to date either. The last post on there was April 2019. Weird way to run a competition line!!
Won the $100 voucher not the mini sadly!
Nice win, congrats! :)
Thanks fourleaf :)
Hi Surfer Boy, Woah, that's luck shining upon you! Congratulations!!
Cheers lizawilson03 :)
I have not seen a newsletter since 24th when it kept saying error 404 and support has been reporting away for 2 months now. I send an email advising this or these issues and never received a reply at all. I go into it every day for past 14 months so I am very dissapointed with it especially the lack of contact. Its like they are hiding or somefhing. No newsletter then no bonus entry but can still enter 1 entry if you go directly to the website.
I received a message that he is changing email providers that's why there's a problem.
Then why not put up a note to that effect on the website letting everyone know?
I received the newsletter today 9 Jan 2020.
It's stopped again with no messages, not a great way to run a competition line.
Can't get on the page from newsletter as it says 404mistake so what's happening? Does anyone know?
Offer more surveys to win rewards. That way it can be more useful for everyone including me.
Does anyone know how long it takes for your redeemed points to be put into your PayPal account? I've left messages but no answers and it's always offline. Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks. ????????
I have had the same issue @carolsomer
Same here ,,,,
I don't think this forum is working. I picked a category/topic but it's not taking me to that section. Also, does it take long to receive a reply from the website? I sent a message a few days ago.
Hi guys,If you would like to make extra cash over the holidays, there is an app called Qmee which you can download on your phone and make money answering surveys. So far, I've made over $50. You also get discounts when shopping online. Join here and start earning today: http://qm.ee/6B63FF94
Why is the blog page not kept up to date? The last thing posted was 2018. It was about craft so why isn't it more relevant and updated?
I totally agree Carol.
Posting on daily on your blog is not a good strategy in any way! Instead, schedule 2-3 good blog posts a week and use the remaining time to share them on different social platforms on different search engines. That will save enough time for your subscribers to come back to read your posts and engage.
Hi Liza. Yes, I agree with that. Posting daily on a blog is overwhelming.
Thank you for sharing this amazing idea, really appreciates your post.Complaint Guide Details
Why is it so hard to win the guessing game? I've seen one woman has won it 4 times so far and a guy 3 times. I know it's luck of the draw but geez!! Wanting to win.
yes @carolsomer that does seem quite unfair for people to win it several times - not too sure how they manage that, the site says you aren't supposed to cheat and you should be disqualified if this were the case.
The unicorn is a new show starting on channel 10 about a single dad whos wife dies and he begins to date again and has a little help from friends who put out his profile on a dating app..he cant believe how many ladies are interested in dating him..his friends nickname him unicorn..a funny,light hearted comedy tune in if you want to watch it..sounds entertaining..thoughts thanks please share will you enjoy this kind of program..?!
