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 then
Grab some of nature's own vitamin D
Go for a stroll and don't think about comps
Look for some markdowns at your supermarkets
Saving money is cool too!

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 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.

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.

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 :)

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.

Donald4564
11 Jun 10:57 AM

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.

Finally some Surveys that I've qualified for.

gaseja
27 May 11:28 AM

Yes! Don't you just hate it when you've waited 5 minutes for a survey to open up, then answered about 25 questions only to be told that you are screened out or the quota's been filled? This morning I had 5 surveys in my box. I didn't qualify for any of them but managed to waste over half an hour on them. Really, saving up a trickle of points for over 9 months or so for the possibility of getting $20 is just not worth it!

Donald4564
30 May 7:45 AM

I love (not) the survey that ask if you about your Business Role - starting from CEO or CFO down to Managing Director or ones that ask your Household Income starting at $150,000. Do the survey companies really think these types of people have time or inclination to do survey to make a living? Ha

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?

Donald4564

Yes, a small win but still a win. (signed cricket bat)
I also nearly missed a trip I had won and the guy ended up contacting my parents (as my number is silent) and rang me.
It turned out to be the best trip ever! So glad he persevered.
Now I try to be extra vigilant scrolling through my endless e-mails. Probably have missed out on others that I didn't know about.
Ignorance is bliss...LOL
I dislike how some comps only require your e-mail. I think I'd rather be rung up and congratulated over the phone :)

SunnyLife

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.

Same here, 2 surveys worth 150 each, heaps of questions than get told I don't qualify, woohoo got 5 points each. This way, It will take years to get enough points to have any sort of cash out. Looking back, in over 12 months I have only qualified for 1 survey and been able to complete it, omg.
