One of the downsides of entering these competitions is the fact that it increases the amount of junk mail one receives. I now get about 200 such items of rubbish on a daily basis. It has necessitated me arming myself with another email account which so far is free of unsolicited bother. I go through the junk address quickly each day though - just to see if I might have won something - although of course I could easily miss something important. (Not that there is any likelihood that I will ever win anything of course. :-))How do others cope? I would be interested in knowing what you all do? Has anyone missed notice of a win because of having to wade through all the junk?
07 May 5:22 PM
I have two email addresses: one personal; one only for comps. Every few days I do a search on Keywords like congrats; congratulations; winner to see if there is something I have won that I need to respond to.
10 May 3:59 PM
That's a great idea!
12 May 8:28 AM
I usually do that though a lot of spam e-mails I have noticed start with "Congratulations" to hook you in believing that you have won something when you have not, just for you to send back your details...lol

21 Apr 8:24 AM

08 Apr 3:33 PM
That's not so bad @flowerpower98 I have had many times when I have been at 70-90% and then told I did not qualify, getting no points as well!

Anyone copping weird phone calls. I am getting people ringing and then hanging up. I do a search on the phone number to see if there are complaints and most of the time they are multiple complaints.
22 Mar 7:06 PM
I just found that i won the Guessing game 12 games ago but, have received nothing so, what's the go
23 Mar 7:39 PM
Go into the survey section on top of page and it will show you your 5000 compbux, but I am sure you need like 5200 to redeem 50 but for 3400 you can redeem 30, see how u go :)
22 Mar 7:53 AM
hi if you know of new competitions how can you share them on this site? it states only businesses can do that.
22 Mar 11:27 AM
The only section you could do that on this site is in this forum. Some other comping sites let you post direct. :)
19 Mar 1:29 PM
I need some help. Sometimes when I post a comment on facebook. It's only visible to me and my friends. But anyone who isn't friends with me can't view it. I don't know why. It seems to only happen when I write competition answers that are longer.
23 Mar 4:18 PM
You need to go to your Settings which can be found on the far RHS up the top with the arrow pointing down. If you want EVERYONE to read you comment change this to PUBLIC. If you only want the Public to read one of your posts, you need to change the arrow on bottom RHS from FRIENDS to PUBLIC. But fb are tricky, because you will still need to go back into Settings again and change back from Public to Friends.
23 Mar 8:52 PM
It's not a post on my page it's a comment on a business page
24 Mar 8:13 AM
Facebook been doing some strange things of late, could it, for some reason, be marking your comment as spam? I know this has been happening to some friends over the last month or two, and the public can not see the friends comment.
18 Mar 1:50 AM
Anyone love to share Coles's Easter Egg Hunt answaer , Please . I have to searched 3days and only one eggg because log in. Thank you very much. I give up Eftpos code , truly impossible to find it. Good Luck Everyone.
18 Mar 3:06 PM
I'd like to know too. I've just been entering normally. Every time I go to enter the code word is eggs-husted. Probably won't win, but you never know.
18 Mar 4:32 PM
I am still looking three Easter ?? eggs, make me crazy...., please , thank you
22 Mar 9:11 AM
lmao. Yeah it's a bit of a brain teaser it went very quick last week.
16 Mar 1:03 PM
I cashed in my comp points and haven't seen any payment yet. I have written several emails to no avail. Do you ever get paid on this site or is it one of those sites they warn you against?
17 Mar 12:10 AM
@FARMERTYSON Love your style, humble words, good luck mate!!!
17 Mar 8:46 AM
I've never been paid, even though I've sent emails. I gave up. :(
19 Mar 8:49 AM
I am sure admin will be obviously reading these posts and hopefully honour the compbux redeemed, I mean who will do surveys ect. If people are not being paid. I am reluctant to do any if rewards are not being honoured. I will sit back and wait and see what happens!! Happy comping fellow compers!!!
07 Mar 2:12 PM
What's the story with doing Surveys on this site? I just spent about 15mins completing the questions and then it came up saying I was not suitable. Not happy Jan :(
19 Mar 8:53 AM
@admin what about issues with compbux not being paid? Seems to be a few of them, I don't have much incentive to do them if this is the case, I say this with respect and no malice as I really do appreciate the opportunities on this site :)
22 Mar 7:03 PM
I won the guessing game and have received nothing, What's the deal
07 Apr 8:55 AM
I am just about at that point where I will ditch surveys. It seems most of them are run by shysters who ask a lot of questions and then get out of paying the surveyed for their time by telling them they don't qualify. I like it when too when I go to a survey and then before I get a chance to do anything - I am told I don't qualify - how would they know if I ain't answered one single question? Then - there is the reward. What are the average pay rates in Oz per hour these days? Surely more than 75c (or its equivalent in points). My only hope is that I might still be alive to be able to redeem my points after about 35 years.
05 Mar 1:26 AM
Anyone find EFTPOS code , I have searched ove two hours, Website, Twitter and everywhere.
05 Mar 11:11 PM
lmao. For this week it's now exhausted bonus entries for the codeword. They also have an Instagram and Youtube account. No. No. No idea what it was.

Win something? Ha! What are the odds? About ten trillion to one I would venture.
08 Apr 12:22 AM
What members still using the site. :)
02 Mar 4:07 PM
Eftpos comp $100 and looking good for roughly $140 AUD to be finalized Monday morning for my new favourite weekly leaderboard picking Esport winners.
05 Mar 7:27 AM
Lemond nice win there mate!
05 Mar 11:12 PM
@surferboy83 Thanks. That's the 2nd time in about a month won the Loot League. Considering around 350 participants each week I must be doing something right. :)
02 Mar 12:50 PM
Why is the leaderboard discontinued?
04 Mar 9:30 AM
@lemond Might not be the place to mention this, but can you recommend any other good comp sites?
04 Mar 9:58 AM
@wolverine Will start with Ozbargain. I post a few on occasions. Usually, around 20+ competitions a day are posted most times ASAP. Its' disadvantage would be it's based on the voluntary posting by members. Thankfully there some dedicated members. They're a few others eg Lottos site which is paid. I don't like the format of that site. It looks like something out of the stone age. Considering members pay they could direct some funds towards a renovation. I don't use the site. There's a couple of other paid ones I can't recall off the top of my head. Personally, I wouldn't pay for any of them. Freebies.com http://signup.freebies.com/global/refer?refer=196236 my referral gives extra points for the member exclusive comp and its monthly leaderboard. Lately, I not trying hard for that. I play it strategically once in a while. I'm saving up points for a month down the track after a top 10 mid last year. That has some Aussie comps there. I don't pay close attention to those. I.e. too many sources of comps.That's a small list Ozbargain probably the best of the lot. They also have sections for freebies worth checking out regularly.For FB competitions keeping a rough eye on what's circulating. FB is where most probably finding competitions. I.e. most promoters will post competitions there. From there they circulate about. You could do the same for other social media. That process can be bit more legwork. There are pros and cons for all comp sites. If it's listed means it's probably well circulated. In January most of my wins were from "off-radar" comps with relatively low entry. (less than 50). This year I've generally changed tactic and on occasions focus more on those more likely to win. There are tons more including international sites I used to regularly check. It's too exhausting to regularly check them. Some automation might solve that one day. I've just resumed working on that. It helps now that I've got decent PC. It's slow and steady process. Somewhere in my bookmarks probably got dozens to potentially thousands of regular locations could be keeping an eye out. Argh, my bookmarks are extensive and have a life of there own. A rightful mess. That what was mainly working on for "few" months last year. Not just the interface to help manage what I've entered but a system to help collate competitions to enter. If really trying to keep on the ball for competitions of interest it's a lot of legwork checking various regular locations. Potentially could do things like highlight "off-radar" competitions worth entering, that's if they stay that way. Also, things like reminders for daily entries or store my creative entries for future inspiration. Gee I've got a lot of ideas on the back burner. At the moment getting core things required down pat. I'll have to properly go through my bookmarks to see what decent sites/links I've accumulated. Some I might have got around to putting into a database which potentially could be integrated.
04 Mar 8:00 PM
@Lemond and @Volverine, maybe it is worth to mention that Ozbargain's members also use their referral links to gain bonus points when entering competitions. In my opinion, that also create some sort of comping community there
23 Feb 7:08 PM
Has anyone ever found love though comping.I'm trying to find my soul mate.Any single female compers also looking for love message me.
21 Feb 9:04 PM
Ummm..... @LenaAxelsson , @CindyDinh.... are you twins?...... maybe I need glasses or is something being copied here.......

19 Feb 12:18 PM
I am super excited! Since joining this community late last September I have won a $20,000 travel package with Jetstar ($10,000 in flight vouchers, $5000 spending money and $5000 in hotel vouchers) which we have received and booked to go to Hawaii for 3 weeks and Vietnam 2019 for a month! Plus a sprinkler from Gardena and most recently a $100 Salmon Hamper from Huon Salmon in Tasmania. 3 prizes in 5 months isnt too bad I think. I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for this site and making it so easy to enter competitions - I am hooked now!
21 Feb 3:48 PM
27 Feb 12:08 PM
wow Cindy, what a winner of prizes, well done. whats your secret ? pretty amazing wins.
07 Apr 8:59 AM
I am green with envy! :-) I have not won even a brass razoo after years of trying! Boo hoo (please bring on the violinist)
19 Feb 10:39 AM
Bye Bye leaderboard :(It's being discontinued from the end of Feb
21 Feb 11:54 PM
Which will also mean no more double guesses. :( Not much to keep coming back for.
24 Feb 11:20 PM
Hmm and the really bad news to cash out without losing any compbux in the exchange rates at $100, well you need a lot of valid surveys or get lucky on the guessing game a couple of times. If you got a bit of spare Compbux you should be able to exchange for $50. Guess will remove the site from the bookmark bar.
01 Mar 7:32 AM
Being in points section on the leaderboard once in the last year, won't make a lot of difference to me.
17 Feb 7:24 PM

05 Feb 5:42 PM
Did anyone happen to get the code word for "I'm a celebrity, get me out of here" on Sunday night. I watched the whole show and nope, no code word relating to the tenplay competition advertised.
13 Feb 11:30 AM
Were there any code words for this week? I'm sure my local T.V station does not put them up even though we are eligible to enter.
14 Feb 12:58 PM
@SunnyLife The codeword comp is over :( but there is still a car giveaway on TenPlay that you don't need a codeword to enter. Good luck.
16 Feb 4:17 PM
@Smalot11 Thanks :)
04 Feb 11:15 AM
After a slow Dec/Jan here's hoping February will start picking up!
05 Feb 11:06 AM
X fingers you only need one good win then you can bask in the sun for the rest of the year.
05 Feb 2:08 PM

| BYOjet - Win a trip to Singapore, New Zealand or a BYOjet Travel Voucher
Just letting you guys know real people do actually win like and share competitions. I entered this one and found out on Thursday night that I won the first prize -flights to Singapore. Excited is an understatement!
11 Feb 11:40 PM
Wonderful prize, so much to see and do in Singapore
12 Feb 9:24 PM
Congratulations on your win :)
19 Feb 7:44 AM
How awesome congragultaions
01 Feb 7:51 AM
Still just one guess once again - certainly an issue that keeps happening which I hope will be rectified one day soon, It seems to happen every time!I am also missing guessing game points too!!
26 Jan 9:30 PM
Hi all,I have started my 4th 1000 comp challenge. Entering 20 comps a day for 50 days. If you want to follow along I am posting the 20 comps I am entering at this page - https://www.facebook.com/WinAndGrin/Wishing you all good luck for 2018
03 Feb 5:02 PM
@Trevsta Thanks :). Yeah chipping away. Still not bad for a week around $300 in cash/groceries. Think my run of the leaderboard has dried up and need to start looking elsewhere rattling the tin can. Be nice to get one of the decent cash ones however they generally get heaps of attention. There were less than 10 entries, so I better odds at that then decent daily random points today. A bit of luck and made a fair bit of it by doing some legwork scrounging around. That's only half the challenge. Would have won close to $1,000 in cash & Coles/Myer in the last 12 months, a good portion from my sponsors Competitions.com.au and Eftpos :)
04 Feb 9:45 AM
Following ....very interesting....good luck!
04 Feb 10:27 AM
@KittyKat65 Thank you :)
25 Jan 11:57 PM
Does anyone know of competitions on that are on Twitter. All the ones i have seen are all international, i can't seem to find any in Australia.Thank you
29 Jan 11:35 PM
@Smalot11 I chat with a bunch of UK compers will ask them how often they use Twitter. I do notice a lot of USA and UK twitter comps in the feed. Argh sorting through various social media looking for nice international ones takes time.@WillWin1DayHmm for Aussie comps just on twitter. I don't use twitter enough mainly due it takes dedication to juggle competitions across multiple social media. On average just a few exclusive twitter comps each month. I'd probably find more via Youtube then Twitter. Usually, most are run across or advertised on multiple social media, mainly due to they're focussed on funding their Youtube and Twitch channels. Twitch there you go another untapped social media to scrounge for competitions. Also will add Discord. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, Twitch and Discord that's a juggling act. Reminds me got one on Discord to complete ASAP. :)
30 Jan 12:32 AM
@WillWin1Day Probably the biggest factor you don't see many Aussie Twitter comps it helps if you're in touch with what's circulating about. I could go scrounging about and bound to stumble across a few. Most times it's a matter of knowing where to start looking. Following the trail of breadcrumbs usually leads to an ants nest. :)
09 Feb 2:33 AM
Thanks heaps.Twitter seems to be my friend(touch wood) I have won 3 things so far, all from Twitter. $125 on my betting account, and yesterday wanderers vs Pheonix tickets with 3 of my mates in a corperate box! I only started doing comps roughly 6 weeks ago! Just don't want to get to hyped up with comps, because i know, you can't win them all.Although i did have an issue with my twitter account twice, due to improper use, so gathered i was following and retweeted comps constantly for all different things, so just be aware, that don't do follows often, as they can limit your use and potentially ban you.As you said, follow the bread crumbs, and that's what i do now, so definitely good advice there for other people to use!
23 Jan 5:49 PM
@Admin.I cashed in points last week to go into my paypal account. The msg on the screen said will be processed in 1 or 2 days., yet still not received. Last time, it took weeks and weeks for the payment to come through after a lot of emails and messages. Please can you process the transaction asap, otherwise why bother with the point system.
26 Jan 8:19 AM
wow I would love to be getting points often enough to cash them in as regularly as you two, let alone making note of how long it takes to get your money. (not complaining or moaning just noticing, that's all) (or asking for tips EITHER for that matter)
26 Jan 4:21 PM
@wolverine lmao. Well, it took ages to win the first time. With luck, you get your droughts then win in batches at times. I had Compbuxs waiting to reach the $50 level which sat on for ages from a couple of 3rd's. You lose too many Compbux cashing out at the $30 level. It could be while before I reach that level again. You know how it is with bills that need to be paid, they don't wait. Just hope it sorts out quickly for @Try2win. Good Luck :)
01 Feb 11:08 AM
haha, some lucky number guesses @wolverine. Last time when I did cash in, turned out it was just 'deleted', by accident :( and yep have now been paid the latest one, thanks @admin.
19 Jan 10:16 PM
Woot won my first creative competition for a pair of nice $340 headphones. Reading and understand the terms and conditions DOES make a difference as was judged the most "creative" by default. Everyone else answered incorretctly for one part of the question and were either distracted by the prize, copied from the first response thinking it was correct or didn't read the T&C's clearly. I'll chalk down the win to the ability to read the T&C's. Thou if I had read them a touch more thoroughly would of realised it's pick up interstate. It was an Australian wide competition and just didn't notice way down the bottom of the T&C's regarding pick up instore and no stores in my state. Currently waiting back on if they will post or need to organise pickup.There's lesson there somewhere always read all of the T&C's. :)
22 Jan 12:35 PM
awesome win mate!
23 Jan 11:51 AM
Thanks @surferboy83 I'm still laughing at the whole scenario. In future I'll read all the T&C's. lmao@Try2win @Smalot11Woot they will post. They finally got back this morning. "We wouldn't ordinarily post this out, but in this instance we will." :)I thought it would work itself out at least I don't need to worry about plan B for pick up. Now decisions gold or black Apple Beats Solo 3 headphones. Comedy gold might be fitting. Reminds me I haven't seen the illustrious @Goldmember in ages. Happy Birthday @Goldmember for this month. :)
