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 :)

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.

Without the leaderboard, this website is not the same. Even though I never got first, second, third, fourth or even fifth place at the end of the month, I liked to visit this website daily to see how many daily points I would get. Most of the time was under 5 for some reason :(

I also never won anything with the daily guesses, but I still guessed numbers every day just for the sake of getting 50 points in order to accumulate points for the leaderboard score. Now I can't see the point of doing that either because if the tradition continues, I will never guess the winning number anyway.

I am not sure what other members feel like, but I would like the leaderboard to get back......so there is a reason for me to visit competitions' website every day.

volverine, even I don't have much time as I work 7 days a week, I still like to enter competitions during my coffee time :). But there are so many different websites with listed competitions, and I might be wrong, but having the leader-board was what differentiated Competitions.com.au from other comping websites. And also, created some form of 'daily or regular' compers here - at least in my opinion.

Ascompet
03 Mar 7:37 PM

@Ascompet I agree with all that. Member exclusive competitions tend to attract members and keep them active. I have a few regular member exclusive competitions I do. It seems to be my forte/luck picking up a few wins from those this last year.

The leaderboard displayed the most active members and compers and got some great comping buddies from that. They tend to a lot nicer than picking up random social media comping contacts. Yeah, the daily points were something to look forward to an "instant coffee" and pick me up (well some days).

Lemond
04 Mar 8:48 AM

@wolverine Hmm for the quality or number of competitions there's a lot of competition out there from other comp sites. My general opinion there's a bit of delay of at least a few days when most competitions are already well circulated. That at times can crucially affect your chances of winning. For that reason, I don't usually pay that close attention to the competitions posted. Doing the leaderboard at least more likely to notice something interesting I've overlooked.

Eg Has the Eftpos comp been posted? Checking myself I can't see it listed. Entries started March 1st and Eftpos Australia gave a few days notice before it became active for entries. Considering it's enormous prize pool would expect it to be already posted.

For some competitions getting in early before the mass of entries can vastly improve your chances. Plus fully understanding the T&C's helps towards how to maximize your chances or know what's required to potentially pick up a win or two, three......

There's still the guessing game, however, as shown by a lot of winners just do that and don't interact with the rest of site. It did have some attraction with the double guesses related to the leaderboard. Now that even that's lure has gone so it's a lot less attractive to return daily.

The site does have some pluses like it's format, ease of use and the forum for exchanging ideas. The leaderboard encouraged members to return daily and keep active. That in turn, promoted the social aspect to check out the forum. More importantly, it attracted members towards the featured competitions which help the site generate an income. Remember all competitions are about the promoter. :)

@lemond Might not be the place to mention this, but can you recommend any other good comp sites?

@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.

@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

I've Won

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!

Which will also mean no more double guesses. :( Not much to keep coming back for.

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.

Being in points section on the leaderboard once in the last year, won't make a lot of difference to me.
