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.

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.
Has anyone been getting the newsletters from here recently, I have not had any in awhile and was just curious if others are receiving them and somehow I was missing them?
Hey All , found a cool survey website. Easy to get points quickly , with points you can buy things already got 800 points only been member for 2 days.https://www.rewardia.com.au/?rs=ref-promo&rk=9PGDMB
Thanks. Tried it. I opened about 10 surveys and didn't qualify for one! Another half hour wasted.
@Donald4564 playing game & activity give you quiet alot points and filling out poll etc
with the survey your points do not show for a few hours i read
pretty easy to gain points and get prizes with it
Any ideas to pay off a maxed out credit card?times a tough at the moment can seem to get a break.What are good survey companies that make a good amount $$Or other online ways to make legit $$$If anyone could assist that be great
Coming Soon!!!! Redeem CompBux to a Flexi eGift Card you can use at Coles and Woolies and more!!
Happy Days. ??
Finally some Surveys that I've qualified for.
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!
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?
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 :)
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.
That's a great idea!
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
Pretty sure people can vote for more than one ...https://whatsinyourshed.com.au/competition_entries/stolen-space/
Voted for sure
Thank you @fourleaf @Delighted @bj74
Voted. Sorry I've been quiet lately on the comping. Good luck :)
Its been very very quiet indeed . full stop. period!!

Anyone get the family feud code word? Watched it, but somehow missed it.
Good luck wolverine, new code BEACH
thanks again smalot11 - I have been watching them via tenplay (I don't get to see them when its on channel 10) and the code words don't seem to get shown watching it this way. Or it might be just me, but I have watched both episodes twice now and still didn't see it.
No worries. Good luck to you. Sounds like a great family holiday.
@wolverine Same here, it doesn't seem to show up some how on the channel. :/
Netrewards always have them listed too
thanks bj74 that's very helpful! (what does bj stand for - I can think of one thing I know it stands for)
@wolverine , lol, get your mind out of the gutter, it's my first/ middle name initials
sorry @bj74 just seeing who's paying attention. Not as much activity on this forum lately.
@wolverine lol, all good. I agree though, it has been pretty quiet on here.
Very quiet *hears cricks* :)
@Smalot11 And it's not even cricket season. :)
@Lemond :) haha hope you have had some wins lately
I haven't had any newsletter compbux posted to me for the past few days, anyone else missing out on them? Very consistent prior to that though.
Same, and just got 1st survey in a while, but was terminated after a couple of questions, got 5pts for that.

Nah, don't think so, yeh nah
@admin I don't think this topic has anything to do with comps
Just not sure if getting your emails as I think bigpond are stating they are spam, I will have to search my spam folder
HI. Are you still having this problem?
Hi All,You can now earn 5 CompBux a day just by clicking the button on the homepage. You can also earn 5 CompBux by clicking the link in the newsletter. This is just the start! We hope to implement more bonus points for rolling consecutive points. Eg. You click our newsletter every day for a month etc.. Let us know your thoughts / suggestions!A
Sounds good, it's a great thing I reckon :)
sounds great! - a few other ways to collect compbux would be even better
I still don't get your emails
That sounds great thanks
Yeh, looks like incentive stuff admin, I like it :)
Great idea, well done!!
The more bux to help feed the cows....well..the better I say, each point counts, now back to sleep
@FARMER-TYSON , don't you mean back to sheep? Couldn't help myself :) lol
Gold @Brokemaree93!!! :)
Sounds good :)
When will surveys start being more then 75 points?
Last 2 surveys I got were 150 each, go figure!! :)
Hey I would just like a survey that doesn't got for 20 questions & then tells me that I am not quite the person they are looking for.
totally agree with gaseja!!!
I absolutely concur!! :)
I just had 2 that were for 150 then. Both times i got 5 points and was over halfway done with the surveys. The emails i recieve are only 75 points, so i think it might only be 150 points for surveys now and then.
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.
Hi there should be some coming through at 150, the 75 points will be bumped to 100. You need to view the survey page for the 150 points ones for now..
started a 150 point survey now, go to 11% did not qualify, not even 5 points!!!
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!
Hi Compers!Here's the latest from our blog: THE MAGIC OF CRAFTY CREATIVE COMPETITIONShttps://blog.competitions.com.au/tips/the-magic-of-crafty-creative-competitions/Have a great Easter Holiday!NicoleResident Blogger at Competitions.com.au
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.
I just found that i won the Guessing game 12 games ago but, have received nothing so, what's the go
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 :)
