I just recieved an sms message telling me i have won a Toyota Klugger or $50,000 cash and to click on the included link to claim. When I click on the link it takes me to a page that asks me to phone a 1900 number to collect. Problem i have is my Telco blocks all 1900 phone calls. What should i do about contacting the promotor unless it us a hoax.
most likely as spam message , google the number and company.
Looks like it might be a money making scam, any other details on the page?, calling a 1900 number will charge you a fee (here is a extract from the net). A legit company would call or email you for such a large prize I'm sure! ....." A 1900 or 1902 number has a 'tariff' attached and you will be charged the amount set for this service. These tariffs can be 'timed' (per minute), or they can be 'fixed' (per call). The format for these numbers will be 1900 XXX XXX or 19 XX XX.We don't set the costs for calling these numbers, but rather the owner or provider of these numbers does and on-passes these costs.Before you call a 1900 or 1902 number, make sure that you know how much it will cost you to call that number. This cost of the call must be stated wherever 1902 or 1900 is shown. If you notice a charge for a 1900 or 1902 number on your bill and you haven't made a call to this number, call us on 131 999 to help you. "Best of luck to you :)
Thanx everyone this is as i thought. I agree with you fourleaf i should have recieved a call or email for such a good prize. Shame on the scammers!
NEVER click any links given to you via your mobile phone, or even in emails, without checking into it first. A legitimate message should include all information about what it is that you won, and they should call and/or email you with full details about who they are and what you can do to contact them via phone and/or email to claim your prize. There are so many scams right now that it is easy to be hoodwinked. Please be careful. You may have opened yourself up to hacking and viruses.
5000 points.. Competitions.com.au.. Guessing Game... WHOOOOO.!! such a surprise.! Thanks..
Well done. My turn is coming!
Yay! PayPal is back on this site.Looks like it is Processed 1st week of every month. Thank goodness because I was thinking about dropping out from the CompBux & Guessing Game. Did anyone else feel this way?
Thanks, good to know regarding the Combux PayPal option. I'm not doing many comps thou try and remember to chip away at the CompBux most days and do the occassional survey. Slowly chipping away to get the $50 mark. :)Hope you've been having plenty of luck. Merry Xmas
How do you claim the PayPal option? Once you reach a certain number of points, it becomes available to select? I can see the option, but that's all
Pour myself a cup of hot tea and read for a solid half hour while drinking tea before I go to class or work. let's get this par-tea started aye? Terrible joke, sorry, moving on...

Earn cashback from all stores. Use my code "EWY42" and earn 300 extra points on your first receipt! https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/bron-rewards/id1308830302?mt=8I've come across this app and it's great for scanning receipts and earning money!
Does anyone have the "Keywords" aka codewords for the ALL 4 ADVENTURE and unleashed comp for Week 1 and 2?Thanks!
Episode 2: (11/11/18) keyword: - MEDIC | Bonus keyword: SIZZLE
Toluna survey on banking exited after completion of 80% or so and said I did not meet requirements so only 5 points. The screen out mechanism needs review to be made more equitablePlus the description stated it was on mobile phones, Often finding these are wrong
I have to agree,getting screened out at 80% is a cop out :(
I agree, I have near given up doing any surveys, spend so much time answering the questions, get screened out for very little return unfortunately.
Are they bonifide comps with actual winners????
Yeh there is. I've won quite a few. Read the t&C to avoid rubbish. Good luck
There are endless questions and the endless unwanted emails and text msgs. Then when you think you have finished there is more complimentary questions. Arghhhhh
Has anyone won anything from shop a docket or career one. I've noticed that they both have exactly the same competitions going and same entry process and then get rung up about taking "offers" up.
I think that they don't want people get more points , so all important information already collected. Cut everyone out .
I just did a survey in Chinese. I finished all survey and told me that I am not qualified to do it. There has some problems about surveries. I spent time to do all questions and get 5 points.
Nothing worse Good luck 888
The surveys are so frustrating. Just spent 10 minutes answering a heap of questions to be told I was screened out. I was more than 75% through it - how could I be screened out then and not allocated the points?Then others won't run or are broken. Or suddenly decide halfway through they don't like my device. Apologies for ranting
Argh. Happened again!
Happened to me too. :(
Anyone see this weeks code word for the living room comp. Thanks
How to check your compbux used to showbut now not
Just go to the "surveys" page, you will see them there.

Won a $3000.00 outdoor setting!! Biggest win I've ever had!
Awesome! Congrats on your win :)
Great win! Nice to finally hear of a win on this forum. Congratulations!
That's amazing! Congratulations!
Thanks! I'm so excited!
I'm green with envy. Fancy! Actually winning something! Congrats!
Awesome win !
Well done what a great win!!
Not sure if that is the right comp. I won a runner up prize from Hyper X/Sydney Swans - Hyper X Cloud Alpha Gaming Headset
Congrats @Di_D :)

Thanks mate! Great man U r!
Lemond for President!! Hope your winning buddy
Hi on tomorrow.com/au, when you enter a competition it asks a series of about 6 offers/ads, do you have to complete this (i usually press skip to the end) for the entry to go through?
It's a scam, unless you want to be inundated with call centre calls from India...go ahead.
I just skip to the end. It says I have been accepted and entered, so I take it at face value. Mind you, you should open up a special email account for doing competitions. So far in my "special email" I have about 6,500 in the in box and about 5,000 in the junk box. I merely go through each day and enter a search by "congratulations" or "congrats" to see if I've won anything. Having done competitions now for about 5 years I can cheerfully say I haven't won a brass razoo and the shock of actually winning something will probably cause me to die of a heart attack! :-)
Tip of the week for entering competitions:Have a break every now and thenGrab some of nature's own vitamin DGo for a stroll and don't think about comps Look for some markdowns at your supermarketsSaving money is cool too!
Gee, I'm feeling this group/page has lost its spark.
Yeh not many wins being listed - or other helpful information and tips like there used to be
I'm so dubious about competitions that ask just to sign up with your email and no other details. I guess they just want to bombard you with advertising and newsletters. I never see any winners names or announcements. The amount of overseas call centres that ring is just ridiculous too. I guess someone must be winning all these comps as this is the worst year I've ever had at not winning anything. Perhaps more people are doing it now. ??
I've had a few wins. Nothing huge but I'm yet to win a really big one. Just enough to keep me in the game.
1st win in 18 months, tickets to the a show during the Sydney Fringe Festival...took my significant other and we had a good laugh, a nice dinner and a couple of drinks! Reminded me it is not what you win it is how you enjoy the win. xx
20 minutes of my life stolen! Did whole survey but at the end it went nowhere! Grrrr
It happens all the time unfortunately!
I've given up doing the surveys. It's simply not worth the time and effort. You fill out a lot of questions and waste time only to find you have been screened out - then it takes a month of Sundays to have the privilege of gaining a pittance.
just did three surveys each about 15-20mins long, got to the end and no points rewarded at all!! what a waste of my time!!
I won a double pass to WHY DONT WE concert in Melbourne from Girlfriend Magazine. My daughter really wanted to go but unfortunately all the ticket sold out super fast. I said to her well let's find some competitions to try. I got the email today and I screamed for her to come here NOW!! She thought something was wrong haha she couldn't believe it! And balled her eyes out! I cannot wait to take her. It's at the end of the month so not long to wait.
That's awesome, congratulations
Sharing this to Facebook :P Great News!!!
Well done i did that for foo fighter tickets a few years back. Congrats!
How wonderful - you've actually won something. I've been entering competitions here for years and not even a tram ticket! :-) The only reward I have is an email account with 500 spam message daily. Can someone tell me about the Tax angle if one should ever be in a position to win an overseas holiday. I am an old-age pensioner - so a tax bill would mean I'd probably have to sell the house.

My first ever win :) :)
Congrats! Here's to many more!
Did anyone see this on this website?"PayPal (7 days) (Will be phased out by 15/07/2018)"What's the go, does anyone know?I love PayPal and I have found a lot of sites are not doing this anymore
We're still keeping it on, but there will be a 2 week delay.. PayPal processing can be all too time consuming and an accounting nightmare and hard on fees esp with NZD (We're in NZ also).
For those who haven't signed up to CashrewardsNow is the time to do so.You purchase Woolworth's E-Gift Cards save them onto your phone for 5% less of the cost.So if you 100 you pay 95. Then use these as Woolworths Petrol station to get a great discount as you get 4 cents off plus you get 5% off as well!http://fbuy.me/jg8ws
Small win but very thankful- tickets to the Good Food and Wine show Sydney. Have been before and it's a good day out, so pretty happy! Compliments of Secret Bottle.
Nice win mate!
Congrats, have fun :)
Great win and there's always the comps at the show too. :)
Any wins out there guys/girls? Just scrolling through the forum and it looks very sad :( hope your all still comping up a storm dont quit get better at it! Have a good one! (Win) :)
It is very quiet now isn't it, no wins here unfortunately.
Bj74 i have started up again after a few months off. Hopefully soon there's a winners call or email for you :)
Hey @surferboy83, biggest prize for me so far this year was $2000 worth of Noritake tableware.Good luck for a winning call or email for you. Sure you will add a holiday or two to your prize list :)
Hey @surferboy83 glad to hear your still entering those trips! Largest win this year for me has been an iphone 8 ($1079). Congrats on your win @Smalot11 :)I've seen some of these surveys before so I doubt I will be eligible again and I don't know how the third parties involved will use this information so I don't access this site much. A lot of hard work for points and I'm normally time poor. (Personal opinion only).Anyone on here is quite welcome to send me a friend request or give me a follow on insta and I will follow you back. Not entering as many now ( because of time) only the 'bigger' ones lol. Good luck to everyone and looking forward to hearing of your next big win @surferboy83 :)and yours too @Smalot11 :) and crossing my fingers for you @bj74, you can have a loan of my fourleaf clover. :)
Thanks @fourleaf Congrats, an iPhone is always a great win. :)I tend to be comping more over on Ozbargain these days, same username, happy also if you wish to connect on FB or insta. Instagram is still a work in progress for me.
Smalot11 and fourleaf cheers back and what great wins! Here's wishing you many more too! Well done!!
@Smalot11 sent through a friend request to you :)
A $250 voucher at my local shopping centre for me.
@Jrob71 Congrats, nice prize :)
Nice one! @Jrob71 :)
I am winning bits and pieces sporadically ,will always enter comps, can't stop now,the bug is alive and well, and once you taste that winning wine,it's addictive, good luck everyone,@surferboy,your a great example as to what can happen....and happen and happen again,and again, lol
Cheers Trevsta. same as you I'll just keep going and going :)
Never. Stopping either mate. Can't stop now, come too far!!!!
I get an email telling me there is a new survey for me.I click on the email to open up the survey.I get to the website to immediately be told I don't qualify - without having to answer any questions!1. Why do I get sent an email to tell me I have a survey when there really isn't one?2. How can a person be screened out before going anywhere?There is something screwy here if you ask me.
Hi @Donald4564,If you're screened out right away it could be a number of things including the quota for the survey being full. Surveys need X participants and if they are met they will close the survey off. It's important to attempt the surveys as they are sent when possible.Admin.
They must close them before they send out the email asking you to participate! That's all I can say.
