bit confused Sunday I got 2 chances to on guessing game and now ever other day been 1 guess?
Hello @Mamma, if you contact admin via the speech bubble at the bottom, they might be able to help you. :)
@fourleaf thanks Just msg admin thanks
Yes I seem to get 2 guesses at beginning of week. All good though, cant complain, although I still never win. I guess will be discontinued anyway now that leaderboard is going
Why are some competitions giving away flights and only ONE night's accomodation.I don''t get it. The flights maybe delayed and then you can barely enjoy your holiday.I saw one with flights, one nights accommodation and tickets to a sporting event and dinner. You can't attend both.
As my mother says "a sprat to catch a mackerel". A competition to get you in so you'll spend some $
Just wondering. I used to win say 10-15 prizes a month. I'm doing nothing different now but lucky to get 1. Over time do people notice the same thing, is it time to change my email address or are there so many people doing competitions now the golden days are over? Thanks!
Do you enter comps on Facebook and other social media?
Not much to go on apart from not winning as many prizes. You might need to reinvent your "strategy" and sounds like resting on previous laurels and require to find new "hunting ground". Initially a promoter might be off radar thou that doesn't last forever. There can may various reason why having less success apart from increase in participants. With a bit legwork can still find "off radar" competitions, the challenge might be keeping those low key or praying they get overlooked. Not as easy as it sounds with the way social media work and competitions. I've seen that first hand a quite a few times with competitions been off radar then within hours go wild once a few pick up the scent. It all depends what they majority of entry types of competitions doing. Random draws expect a bit of effort entering more competitions to pick up the same amont of wins. Or get smarter about them. They aren't all created equal. eg tagging comps etc etc. Also one of reasons may be harder to win. For random competitions they don't get much better odds then leaderboard with about 1/10 shot each month with around 40ish active members. Shh thou don't let that get out. lolOne good win can be better then dozens of prizes. @Samlot11 might agree that finding yourself a forte to work on can be more rewarding. WOL and creative entries which take more time and effort generally spread more slowly and attract less entries. What you think @Samlot11 , doing your 1,000 comp challenge and the blog post help reassess your successful methods? :)
More people are doing comps as times are hard and everyone wants something for nothing so the odds are just stacked up against you. Plain and simple really. Its hard to win a F.B comp these days as everyone is on the band wagon. At the start of comps appearing on F.B it was easy to win, those days are gone.
@lemond like I tell everybody, if you stick with it long enough and strong enough you are bound to win! I have won prizes on Facebook with thousands of entries where as other times I have done a creative 25WOL entry on Facebook that I thought was a winner with only 20 other entrants and lost.
@Smalot11 Yes, I do
OK thanks, maybe it's just a general trend - you start off strong and it tails off! I do enter lots of comps not on this website. I get the impression either there are many more compers these days or e.g. if you've won once, they might rule you out next time to give others a chance
@bexibex Good to hear your doing social media comps. Just keep with it and I'm sure you will back to winning 10-15 prizes a month.Wishing you good luck for 2018!
@Smalot11 @bexibexI agree you need to persistent and determined. There's luck and then there's statistics and may take a bit of dedication to win consistently some might get lucky a win a few things without much effort on the first few tries ,thou the majority (all the rest the entered that same comp etc) will have to keep trying. It took me a few months for the first prize a DVD and around 6 months before starting getting a few consistent wins and over a year and 1/2 for this site. I won my ipad pro with keyboad with odds arounnd 1/3000. So never let the odds stop you enter. I don't expect that to happen to often. Sometimes knowing the rough odds you can estimate the effort required to give yourself a reasonable chance. One comp comes to mind where that probably helped. Usualy FB comps somewhere about 300-500 about how many active aussie compers about , plus the core fanbase of the promoter. If the majority of competitions finding at that participation levels you need to enter a decent amount of competitons like that video you saw. Then it's pot luck for which prize you win if entering various prizes. It nice to have a few decent odds competitions and X fingers pick up a few consistent wins between long shots. To win like 10 to 15 a month I'd place bets a decent amount were probably from creative competitions where having a forte or persistence with those would help. Either that were finding a lot of low odds draws or stategies to give yourself a decent chance. Yes more might be doing competitions or at least from the popular promoters and if following the masses or what's just listed on competition sites and being "lazy" doesn't help your chances. What I'm saying you sometimes doing a bit of legwork to find specific prizes of interest and/or off radar. Occassionaly will come across a few when go scrounging about. Not something done for a while as takes a bit of time. One factor is not just the growing trend in number of participants but also how easy to find regular competitions and how readily they circulate among the compers, especially on Facebook. You just need to keep an eye out out what's circulating about on FB. Pros and cons with FB easy to find competitions thou if they are low odds that could change in a blink of an eye. Get the impression that a lot dont regularily use the various sites and mainly focus what's circulating on FB. A few times seen competitions listed on sites would of expected a lot more entries giving me that impression. Mixing it up a bit from various sources and search methods might help a touch. The con it takes bit of time to hunt down competitions off radar and no guarantees it will stay off radar for long. X fingers at least long enough to win once. :)
@Lemond Thank you, I'm going to Tri(ton) my best to win it. :) :)Good luck to you Mark for 2018!! and to you too @bexibex
@Smalot11 lmao good luck. :) Strangely seems off the main comping radar quickly looking on FB where I tripped over it doing a mini general explore. Then checked elsewhere if was already posted and sure enough. I'm not noticing the usual suspects which I use as indicators if a competition has gone "wild". Of course will get attention with the value of the prize in the general public . It's amazing say on the JB-HI posts get masses of entries and prizes like that might get a fraction. Sometimes I'll do a quick check of a facebook comp for the usual suspects and guage if gone wild especially if it's low entry. Most times don't bother as it becomes a hassle to remember to get back to them. One of factors for picking up some regular wins is finding a few regular off radar ones. Thou if a promoter is doing regular giveaways they don't stay that way for long.
You used to win what!!!! I have been on this site doing competitions for over 5 years and I haven't so much won a tram ticket! I am an old age pensioner and by doing these competitions is my only hope of ever again going on another holiday.... I suppose I can just hope that something may happen before I'm shuttled off this mortal coil. :-)
@Donald4564 Has the site being going that long? Hmm I haven't seen any competitions for tram tickets I'll have to keep an eye out for you. Best I can do at the moment is some rave tickets or for the tennis. :)
Thanks @bexibex you probably helped me a touch for winning a nice prize, regarding why not winning and doing a few things that should do more often. Sometimes you need to do a bit of scrounging about for nice competitions then pray they go relatively unnoticed.
Hi, not many survey's lately.. and no bonus points anymore...???? anyone noticed.?
I had two surveys come up, just a few days ago.
I had 4 late last week, but didn't quality for any, lol
I think..............................arrived home to find a package with a Google Home thingy, no note, pretty sure I did not buy one for myself, so that's a bonus present. I range Google to thank/clarify, but no joy they did not seem to know anything about it although it was their return to sender address, a real mystery as it is not the usual thing I enter, oh well, it's been a while since a win, so I'm happy.
Congrats anyway, they look like a bit of fun. :)
Congrats on the bonus prize! :)
Great start for the year :)
Nice surprise! I received a prize like that 2 years ago but with no return address so I had to go back through all my entries to find out who to thank.
Receptionist at Google was not helpful at all as I really would like to thank someone for the prize, oh well, I'm stumped as I use the enter, forget and move on system.
Well done, anyway..
@Smalot11, just curious how you went with your comping challenge! I remember that you were well on your way to lots of fantastic wins after winning so many! :) Happy new year to everyone too! :)
I was thinking the same yesterday. Though I know overall you must very happy with some of the great wins. :)
1-1000 comps entered from the 14.8 - 7.10. Won 23. 17 still to be drawn. Biggest prize won so far, new iPhone 7 128GB1001-2000 comps entered from 9.10 - 27.11 Won 30, 42 still to be drawn. Biggest prize won so far, 10kg Whirlpool Washing MachineCurrently working on 2001-30002017 was my first full year comping, won a total of 163 prizes. Didn't start tracking comps entered until after I found the 1000 comp challenge.I have found* 20 comps a day can at times be quite challenging apart from xmas time where it becomes overwhelming trying to keep up :)* By keeping track I actually find it more enjoyable and can easily keep track of what I've entered* I need to dedicate 1-3 hours a day especially towards the more creative (25 WOL) answers to enter 20 per day* The more I enter the more I winAs a stay at home parent comping has provided so many experiences that my family wouldn't have had this year, it also means I can contribute in a small way to the family budget with some gift cards here and there. all of which I am very grateful for.Now to win that new car in 2018 :)Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer
That's a very positive result! @smalot11, Congratulations on all your wins! :) Certainly beats the 4 that the author of that article won. Just one question if you don't mind, how do you track the competitions that you've entered without eating too much into valuable comping time?Yes, every win helps with the budget :) Here's to a fantastic year and a new car :) Happy New Year!
@fourleaf Thank you. Just a simple notebook with comp name, prize, prize value and draw date. Then going back and highlighting prizes won or prizes announced and drawn. I'm not sure if it would work for others but I find it the simplest method for me.As for the 4/1000 wins I think he may have shot himself in the foot with the magazine comps he entered. If similar to That's Life or Take 5 in Australia even though your entering 56 comps you only have a chance at winning one because once your name is drawn you don't go back in the pool.Good luck to you too and Happy New Year! :)
I really like the notebook idea, I often use one as well although I may have to get into the habit of using it again. I like the fact that it's portable as often I go and sit in my backyard (overgrown jungle) :)Yes could have tried to boost his daily total that way, those ones are difficult to win I think. :)
@fourleaf Yes I'm the same I might enter a few comps while I'm getting the kids from school or similar so easy just to make a note. And I think you're right it was an easy was to boost daily numbers :) Great minds hey hahaha
Lucky.. I never win anything.! Ahh well, just keep trying...
@mausie Just keep trying! If you stick with anything long enough and strong enough you will win. Good luck for 2018. :)
@admin ,Pretty sure I would of been in the top 50 but I was only given 1 guess in the guessing game.Thanks
Same here :)
Same, but @bj74 you were in top 3 and only 4th to 50 th get double guesses not top 3
Oh really, cool, thanks for letting me know@purplesp8y
Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to the 'one guess' again, hiccup, yep me too, hiccup!
Happy New Year. Yeah first of the month hangover. I think sneaked into the top 10 with 3 9's for the last few days. My favorite number for last year. Thanks @admin and competitions com au for the great year. :)
@lemond, I was lucky to sneak into the top 40, lol. Got 3's the last few days, ended up with a monthly tally of just over 140 for daily points. New month, new day, always live in hope.
@Try2win Lmao. Top 40 should almost be a given unless there was a slight influx of "active" members. New year, new month, new hope and a new computer. :) Finally got all the components together for nice computer which built Christmas morning. Now I actually read the screen clearly to see what I'm entering.
@Lemond Happy days with the new computer :)
yes still only one guess for me too!!
@admin Appears the same issue as last month with until the previous months winners have been determined, everyone gets the default of one guess.
@wolverine Looks like last months winners are up so... most likely guesses are now fixed up.
Good luck, all..
How does the guessing game winner work.I also guessed the same number as the winner and did it early yesterday morning.
First to guess correctly or closest. They must of guessed that number before you.How to PlaySimply guess the number we have picked and win the prize. Every week, the first entry that picks the number or is the closest, wins! Playing the game is absolutely free.
@Lemond Thanks.I thought that was the case and usually do my guess pretty early and do the rest later but I was obviously not early enough
@ Bozay On one of the last pages of the Fisher & Paykel voucher comp came up as a dangerous site via my antivirus, but thanks anyway :-)
Um, maybe its a dangerous site which it actually is,be careful :)

Thanks @LuckyNicky, Merry Christmas,
Anyone know why i am always last on leaderboards
Ask Anna lol
Keep going Mamma, you could catch me, I am averaging 3.57 per day this month so far, sitting on a massive 50 for daily points, with no days missed :-(
i just have no idea why i am so behind
@moreofachance Lmao that might get you on the naughty list.
@Mamma Well unless your about sitting in around 200+ position you're far from last position.Why not higher on the leader board then potentially could be? It appears you might of missed a couple of days of the guessing game i.e 50 x day of the month it should be 750 points as at Dec 15th. 50 points is a significant amount and missing even one day will almost place you at the bottom of the active members around 35th+. There's approximately 35-45 active members on average each month which varies. You might get away with missing two days of 50 bonus and scrape into the top 50. That depends on how many active members. Active members meaning the ones the do everyday all the bonus and tick off most competitions posted before expiring and/or the end of month. Also including the other profile bonuses. If you don't do those you're don't have a genuine chance.The daily process:*Visit the home screen which generates your daily random bonus (1-10). That sorts out the active members.*Do the guessing game every day (Prerequisite for having a genuine chance)*Click on the enter for new competitions posted within the month before expiring or end of month (Can afford to miss a few thou it may make the difference of winning a prize if scores are tight. I can't properly make out the left side of the screen properly so someone else will have to confirm if you have missed doing any of the daily guessing game. Also possible missed clicking on some competitions posted this month before they have expired. Occassionally there may be glitches with the guessing game bonus not registering. If you notice it best to notify the admin ASAP on that day. Apart from that X fingers and pray for a month of decent daily random scores as the leader board is predominately a random competition aimed at "active members".
@Try2win Oh gee that's fairly low. You'll probably end up around 130-120 random daily scores by the end of the month. It's possible to get lower thou from memory statistically would be extremely unlucky. Hmm (206-55)/16 = about 9.4 for the rest of the month to win. Top 3 about 8.75. So..... you probably already guessed it's highly unlikely will end up top 3. There's still a sliver of hope!Recommendation: You're more likely win the eftpos competition this month. There's still time to get your entries in.I "generally" find when doing crap on the leader board I win something nice in another competition. Congrats on your new phone. Good Luck for next months leader board. :)
@Mamma I've just broken a string of twos with a 4 and a 7 today - one of my highest scores this month.It just happens that way sometimes. Sigh@moreofachance probably not a good time to be teasing Anna about her scores afterall it's coming up Christmas. Good luck with the rest of the Christmas comps.
lol thanks guys, maybe i did miss some days :( oneday ill get to the top leader board. Do you get point for adding comps?
@Mamma I almost missed todays guessing game. Always a first. The hint that might of missed it was sitting in around 30th which is usually around where members who have missed one day sit on the leader board . You get one point for every competition that was posted within the month that you click the enter button on. It then changes to viewed. You don't need to complete entry to the competition just have to viewed it. You should notice your score increase by one for each competition viewed since refreshed the page.Good Luck for the following months.
I thought that was me always last! But actually I think it only shows the top 40 or whatever and then shows your place next - and Ive never been anywhere close to that high! But anyway there prob could be heaps behind you but just does not show that. Im currently no. 107
think i have not been giving allot of the 2nd guesses in the game , i have only been getting 1 guess

Wow the list is growing, top job, good luck
@Try2win Argh I know they're multiplying. I'm still trying to find a few I really like. Haven't even checked my list from last year or done any serious searching. There's a few nice one's there.At least this way it should be quicker if see anything interesting.in.
Thanks, what a legend and thoughtful at this time of year, wow you don't muck around, Merry Christmas Comp GodFather!!!
@Brookemaree93 lmao. There's a lot more about and just adding a few as come across them. There's probably at least three times that circulating about. Only entering the few I'm interested and this year as my heart isn't in the advent comps. I'm feeling the better for i compared to last year. Unlikely I'll be stocking up another years supply of wine from Xmas comps. Plus I've still got a bottle of cognac to pick up won from a couple of weeks ago. :)If I'm really organised by next year it really could be a exhausting list, even for the determined. That involves a integregrating a couple of databases and programs that are halfed baked. That's on hiatus with PC issues making things close to impossible the last few months. That was aiming to at the next stage before specifically for this years advent comps. Still a lot of work to do on that and taking it slowly. See where it is in 6 months time. The various sites help and provide enough to keep most busy. It depends on how selectively looking for specific prizes. If they're well circulated everyone man and his dog is also entering andl doing your own searching can be rewarding. Argh a couple of times this year came close to 50/50 chances for decent prizes. Thou once you start having to reqularily search about the legwork gets time consuming . It's so easy to get distracted by the mass of competitions while exploring.The "GodFather" would be @toxicgherkin. I'm still an apprentice with trying to hack through this jungle of comps. Good Luck.
True, have not seen The Don, sorry, The Tox for a while, Trevsta was my life influence for starting after he won New York Beyoncé trip and stacks of other stuff so watching his mad adventure gave me the bug :) Good Luck
@Brookemaree93 They're still about. I'll send some of that good karma for the eftpos comp. It's been rubbing off on a few nice contacts :) I won the eftpos again. Wow Trevsta 's NY trip win sounds amazing. I had a small adventure today (St Kilda pier) was for a a loot drop for XBoxes etc. They did one for Melbourne, Sydney and Brissy. To my suprise was dropped really close to me. Sadly I was too slow. It went within 10 min. I'm and about 5 away by tram. Well was a exciting change of pace for a competitoin. I havent run down a tram in ages.Yeah comps can be fun once in a while and some amazing opportunities. At the moment I'm happy with the small cash wins accumulated this year. Overall not a bad year it's been majority cash/coles myers vouchers around $600 which have come in handy. Good Luck hope the XMas comps are going well.

@admin. See my message above. Thanks.
Dear AdminI think you're given me too many points. I logged in sometime after 1.00 am and I'm sure I was awarded points for visiting the page. I've just logged in again to check out any new competitions and my score jumped up again without doing anything to earn a point. Can you check for me please. Thanks.
I've never come across that scenerio where thought got too many points. Most likely it was daily random points for visiting the home page which when refreshed the page later on showed up on the your total. I'd place bets someone had a long night and seeing double. :)
@Lemond I did have a long night but I was only drinking tea, next time I'll use only one tea bag :-)
I cant believe it. I'm starting to win things. This product is fantastic and I really had my hopes up. Thanks Competitions.com and Beauty haven. Keep up the entries guys you will win!
Congrats @heidoho73 Keep those wins coming.
Big congrat! Woot spread that good karma about. :)
Congrats @heidiho73, hope for many more
Nice win :)
Congratulations on your win :)
Hi my name is Jo Lee and I am addicted to comping, my first step to sobriety is recognition to this heinous habit, I mean it's now like 1:30am and I'm on this comp site, had my fix, til tomorrow! Like getting medicine each day except its comping stuff, sshh :)
Your secret is safe here :) You know you comp to much when you look forward to Monday and the postman turning up haha
You poor soul. Actually I had the sense to enjoy the weekend. I'll send you lots of good karma and my prayers.
@Smalot11 I get the same feeling when midnight rolls over or the end of the month. Hope everyone is doing well for the XMAS comps. So far haven't got into the groove for diving in for the XMAS rush and will start easing into a few today. Do we have a post for a quick list of any the 12 days of XMAS? Would be appreciated due to some technical difficulties making reading challenging. Good Luck :)
@Lemond I've only done the ones on OzBargain, just search 12 Days Of Christmas. The is a list started on one of the Facebook comps page, I'll look and see if I tag you in it.
@Smalot11 Yeah there's some great contributors that work nonstop there. I struggle to keep up with one in particular. Slowly working a list for the reoccurring ones interested in. With the various sites they get buried in haystack if miss the initial post and If lucky catch catch them on closing day.
Looks like the start of the month hiccups returned, I was only given 1 guess today in the Guessing Game, @admin
me too :(
I as too
I had more 1's and 2's last month then ever, plus missed out on 50 of the guessing game ... and @spyglass you've been in top 3 plenty of times .. I've never been there. They are keeping me at low numbers '2' .. I raised the question and they will keep on giving me low numbers as punishment by the looks of it.. And since the game wasn't adjusted and I missed out on 50 points I only get one guess this month...
@spyglass your daily points are 9 for the day .. so you too what?
@Winner1 daily points 7! what are you complaining about?
This is one of the highest I have got.and definately not my normal points I get
@Winner1 not sure what happened that month.. pretty. sure it will never happen again .. random. means everyone gets a chance not the selected preferred few ... I haven't seen some around for a long time....I've been out of work for eons and every little bit would help ... if this months is same as November was then I'm gone ..
your daily score is 6 ...
I was only only given one guess too.
me too - yet again only one guess!
And only 1 guess again for the 2nd DeCEMBER
Day 2, 1 guess only :-(
@anna2077, this post is nothing to do with the daily random points. I started this post because I was only given 1 guess in the daily guessing game, though entitled to 2 daily guesses. Stay positive, and hope the numbers fall in your favour this month.
@Try2win I have one guess for the second day in a row as well .. I've lost faith .... Since I've joined in 2014 there has been nothing .. not even bonus points on my birthday when it was my birthday ... it's only meant for some not all .. some complain and their points improve .. I mention it and I get mostly numbers under 5....
@Anna2077 this was a thread about only 1 guess in the guessing game, not the lack of points that you get
@admin, still only 1 guess for day 3. Hope this problem is being sorted out. How many others only getting 1 guess instead of 2?
@spyglass thank your for coming in a day later and pointing out something that was pointed out a day ago
yeh still only one guess for me too!
Day 3 and still only 1 guess for me too
Day 4, still only 1 guess. Hopefully @admin trying to sort this out.
Only 1 guess for me as well today
Yeah, got 2 guesses today, thanks @admin for fixing this problem. Now, just need the money to show up in my paypal account that I cashed out of compbux back on the 20th of last month :-(
Still one guess for me, good luck all :)
Hiccups still hanging around, back to 1 guess only today :-(
Same here, only 1 guess as well
Yes only 1 guess again for me today
Surprise surprise, 1 guess only
@adminWas there any news regarding last months leader board winners? I suspect no members in the top 10 from last month received their compbux prize.The issue of one guess for the guessing game seems to be a related with the leader board results from last month that haven't been processed.. That determines for the following month if members have single or double guesses.
It seems that the glitch has been fixed :)
@Ascompet Thanks. :)
All good now, thanks
@Lemond, your a legend, just saying :)
So nice to see both of you at the top again .. how many times this year? Whats the trick you are all using?
@moreofachance I've been called many things when umpiring cricket. I might borrow that comment for a cricket sledging comp. lmao
@Anna2077 I think @moreofachance trick this year is to pull those 10's out of their ... hat. I'm due for my fair share of 10's. After my week 3 start didn't think would make the top few. Had like a total of less then 10 from 4 days in a row. @purplesp8y Must of been real unlucky it looked around a week to go they were going to win by a furlong. Surely this month @Anna2077 your luck will turn around. Well any month soon...Good Luck
@Anna2077 Nice got my favorite number of the year 9. What's yours?
Yep I was well and truly beat in the last 5 days only getting 1 & 2's in points while others were getting higher. Oh well another month of trying.
@Lemond tell someone who will believe you ... if the game was fair then everyone would get a chance .. but since only few always win ... and when you don't get the scores that you are entitled to like guessing game... the game is thrown ... no point in trying... if the game will be fair then daily points will be removed ..
@purplesp8y not trying any more ... if this points thrown to few will continue I will leave ...
Cheer up @Anna2077, I had a second and two thirds in three years and have never had a first on the leaderboard. Scores can be disheartening but try focusing on the comps. Quitx are giving away 100's of free movie tickets, it sounds like you deserve a good movie...Did you send a direct message to admin? Hopefully they'll fix it for you ??
@fourleaf I joined in 2014.. my best in all the years was being at #5. I didn't get all the guessing game scores and the admin didn't''t bother to fix it. I don't enter many comps .. only what I need Some have worked out how to make the game work for them to be always on top .. I get to see movies via subscriptions .. Posted a message in the forum and was ignored and this month I only get one 'lucky' number guess ..
@Anna2077 I am hearing you loud and clear.I am lucky if I even get 1 10 a month and get so many 1,s and 2,s it's rediculouus.I also notice many of the same names are often in the top 10 each month every time.I have been a member for 5 years and never have been in top 5 but did win the guessing game once soon after I joined.I notice my points are always pretty close to yours
@Anna2077 All members get the same chance EVERY month.. Probably one of the biggest influences are the simple "skill" components for the major bonus. eg Complete profile, add a pic and do the daily guessing game. Seems like there're hundreds of "floating" members which don't do that. It's up to them to be active and complete those simple requirements to maximise their chances. It's possible I could of have been top if had been on the ball this month or out of the top bunch if too many slip ups. There wasn't much in it between first and fifth. When you finally get lucky with the daily points to be a genuine chance it helps if maximise your chances as possible. From there you just X your fingers and patiently wait for your lucky daily points to come up.
@Lemond spin it any way you wish.. but you've found a way to beat the low numbers and have advised a few close friends ...
@Anna2077 It's called Karma :)
@Lemond oh you've not met Karma ... Karma is when you will stop winning .. just because you've been greedy
Lemond, I think your very wise and always courteous and diligent, probably should try umpiring cricket! This ain't Rocket Science and it's only a game, although some take it way too serious and to heart, the rulz say every comper has to be a happy camper! Good Luck you legend!!!
Lemond is the Papa Smurf of comping and our adjudicator for issues and advice, everyone Hail The King, for he is a living legend of sound mind and character!!!
@Anna2077 Congratuations on your extraordinary spiritual insight and such ironic comedic timing of your gift. May it result in an infectious mass outbreak of good Karma throughout the comping land. Thank you for providing such a thoughtful gift which becomes pure comedy gold in when in reference to my blessed week. If I wasn't also distracted sharing your enthusiasm, your statement could be interpreted to representate the opposite of the embodiment of good Karma. We can only presume you weren't intentional attempting to offend the antaryami who resides inside us? That would only be contrary to your unqualified wisdom you were trying to protray. You also must of been so overcome with your rush to spread all the good Karma you invertly made some tiny oversights. You wouldn't want to confuse your new followers. Possibly you intended to state "Bad Karma results in you stop winning" etc . To help you achieve your karmic cleanse you'll need to differentiate Karma, good Karma and bad Karma. Karma is a spiritual principle of cause and effect where intent and actions influence the future. It encompass both good and bad Karma. Given that divine knowledge you could soon be on the start and first step of the journey to cleanse any residing bad KarmaWhat masterful comedic timing and exceptional irony and your statement is on so many previous states of existence, which has decided my fate with another unexpected future of a good Karma existence. Either I've been courting good Karma or her twin sister, Fortuna this week, it's impossible to tell them apart! I'll thank them both for the divine week for their well appreciated and timely gifts. The first gift was from one my favourite sponsors, Eftpos. This was due to surprised influx of good Karma and despite only having submitted very few entries an unexpected individual greatly attributed to my fortunate resulting gift. This could of been the result of attributing the last few months due towards their site in my own usual and instinctive way. One thousand blessings in return towards that person . :)The second gift will be from our generous competition site that provided another timely giftThe third divine gift this week was a Laser X 817 Crash Cam. Thou I don't drive this gift may spread untold Karma as coincidental, or was it good Karma?, a good mate that I hadn't heard from for ages unexpected dropped by, of all days the first day Comparmageddon or as I refer to it, forgive me "The 12 days of Hell" I cherish their unexpected divine timing and helping out when most needed. They have exceptiional timing for materializing on the exact same day when I was previously gifted such genourous items.Good Karma and/or Fortuna have been extrermely appreciated this week and possibly sensed how urgently I require a new computer. These gifts will help achive my nobel goal and will enable the continuation of spreding your wisdom.
YAWN @Lemond ... another long winded reply .... too painful to read as you always go on and on and on and it's all me me me You've been crying about a new computer for the last few years .. if you know what to do like you claim , you could have built one by now no one cares about your wins but you ... I don't enter all competitions
@Anna2077 Thank you for your best wishes. You've blessed again in multitudes, beginning with yet another 9 to start my day off. How do you do it? Appologies If I didn't adorn thee soul to your satisfaction. I was overwhelmed by the mass of good karma you sent. The timing of your divine message must of come directly from the heavens to have such a spontaneous result. Shouldn't we share your success and aspire how to obtain such divine powers, so that we all can pass on such good Karma at will?Your wisdom shows no bounds. Is that the third step you're referring to about one must claim responsibility? We would all love to know how you progressesed so quickly in your karmic cleansing.
Lemond, I care about your wins and for that matter anyone else's wins,your wisdom has no boundaries and is clearly superior to others,good luck mate and good luck Anna :)
Yep, another 10 for me today, great Karma, another great day on this great site, keep em Rollin and for the record, try logging on standing on one leg while shaking your head really fast, it gets you higher numbers every time but don't tell too many people, keep it small ssshh, Lemond for President!!! Hail The Oh Wise One :)
Seems I've had the negative karma thrown at me, 1 today and same yesterday :-( . All the negative air needs freshening, so I burnt a candle this morning, lol. Good luck all.
@Brookemaree93 Thanks. Thou I was posting due the timing and comic irony. Just some timely examples of how good karma can be unexpectly returned. :)If wisdom equates to donig way too many competitions there's proabably quite a few lessons learnt. That and observing what goes on in the comping circles. Some of it gets very murky especially voting competitions. The pitfalls they're a hell of a lot of comps about once start digging about. I could spend the whole day just checking various sources worldwide. Sometimes discover some great off radar competitons. I've cut back doing that this year until complete a more efficient way to manage it.It's easy to get overwhelmed by the vast number of competitions. This year I've cut right back and basically was only doing a handful of comps and the leader board for most of year. Only in the last couple of months been lot more active with urgency of requiring to replace my PC which is approching unusable. The wins have helped towards it's budget and currently stuck waiting for components to be in stock soon.There's a few members that have great succes and my i impression they focus on their various fortes. Those usually have lower entries and great prizes. That's something I'd like to work on.Good Luck.
@Try2win I think my New Years resolution is don't mention the leaderboard and daily score . I hope Karma takes that in jest as I mentioned a few days ago my favourite number this year seems to be 9. Had 3 so far this month. @moreofachance lmao. There's probably a few times I've been superstitious with the daily scores. Like do I spoil a nice day and unwrap it early or wait. It can be nice pick me up ... well at least for one day. It can cruel comp with the slow motion draw over a month, especially when it comes to the last few days and have a chance. Good Luck
@moreofachance Lmao I didn't notice it was again. That's you get when you spread the good karma it returns 10 fold. Pass that lucky hat around. :)
@Lemond yep another high score again, mate keep that Karma coming bro!!
@moreofachance Argh I should of waited until my morning coffee. Well looks like your off and running in the Xmas dash for cash. I've stumbled and in danger of being trampled by the oncoming Xmas hoards. I'll try and hold them off as long as possible. Just keep on running and don't look back.
@Lemond oh dear. you think that you are smart and funny... how truly sad... if you aimed to be sarcastic you failed there as well .. keep on trying.. one day you might succeed..
@Anna2077 Was to prompt you to maybe reflect why it appears you default to the need to projective negative karma. Possibly there're some underlying issues clouding your thoughts. It doesn't excuse what could be considered "trolling" at times.Maybe the best XMAS gift could be reflecting and obtaining some insights into Karma and use that knowledge to achieve your goals like your dream job.
@Lemond oh dear ... when you think you are smart and funny it's all and good .. when you get a taste of your own medicine it's considered trolling. That's just funny ... life is too short to deal with narcissistic people ...
@admin my guessing game points weren't added today ...
Today is the 30th.. which means that daily games score should be 1500 and not 1450.. I've played the number game daily..
@Admin, I cashed in some CompBux on the 20th, it still hasn't turned up in my paypal account. I thought it was supposed to only take a couple of business days! How much longer before it is transferred?
Now fixed and received into paypal account, thanks @Admin.
Has there been any competition that you've entered where your email account hasn't been flooded with phishing emails?
Facebook competitions generally don't get them. If only I knew exactly which ones are the result of those phishing emails be great. There are some types I try and avoid, especially the ones involving dozens of yes/no responses. On that note I should clean out my junk folder. I seem to accumulate a couple hundred each day. The trend lately is bitcoin trader ones and the usual other types.
What about phishing SMSs. Getting a few of these in the past 3 weeks.
Those too recently
How do I make the most out of this site?
Hi Compers,heidiho73 has kindly shared her story and love for competitions! Read more below...http://blog.competitions.com.au/tips/the-power-of-positive-thinking-works-for-this-comper/If you would like to take part in my monthly interviews and earn extra points contact me at ncharleybooks.com.auThanks,NicoleBlogger at Competitions.com.au
Great read! Thanks heidiho73 and LuckyNicky
Well done @heidiho73. I'm sure you will have that laptop very soon. :)
Thanks for tips and tricks @heidiho73. I like your 'Positive thinking' attitude. Good luck with winning a laptop :)
@heidiho73 Great tips. I find using bookmarks is a good fall back method for keeping track of competitions entered. Notepads I find are ineffective apart from maybe brainstorm creative comps as virtually all comps are online entry.If stick to using one browser for entering comps and bookmark before hitting the submit then append the closing date in a consistent manner eg "01/09/2017" it helps for checking back and avoiding double entry. i.e. the bookmark will show up when you revisit the page. This has help numerous times. Thou on the odd occassion you might find promoters reusing the same link.For various social media, daily entry etc I separate into separate folders etc month. The limitations are when a new month rolls over and got comps spanning months it gets a bit cumbersome. Also appending to the start of the book a consistent date in the format above allows for sorting of bookmarks easily.Most likely what preference you use comes down to the volume and types of comps entered. Good Luck
I haven't won anything in my life! I don't even have over $50.I get into debt to my parents a lot because of the stuff I buy. (Not always, and I usually just owe them $5-20).So I'm here to have some money to keep in pocket if I ever get in debt again.Cheers,Toby. ;-)
Totally off the wall topic, but does anyone know of any competitions directed at gay guys - I know there have been competitions for gay trip/holidays in the past, but have not come across any recently. Any tips for any current gay guys comps for trips, holidays or gay friendly stuff is appreciated.
I prefer the term homosexual
Marriage equality has finally got the vote, 61.6% Yes to the postal vote, which a record 80% of people voted in, GO HOMOSEXUALITY! GO EQUALITY!!! :-|) So Proud!
I am trying so hard this month to crack the top ten. Even though I entered everything I'm eligible for and used all the newsletter links, no joy. So this month head down, click click clack! I am not aiming too high, just slowly sneak up a bit each month. I need to learn how to add comps to help everyone else. I have read some people are really frustrated at their leaderboard results. Don't give up, then you'll never get there. If there is a state that has a lot of state only comps some months that is hard to beat. Just remember there are a lot of us trying to be on top and don't forget it's fun having a challenge. Good luck this month everyone.
@heidiho73 to get a point for a listed comp you only need to view it, not enter it. So it does not matter what states are eligible to enter the comp for you to get a point.
Hello there @heidiho73! Nice to hear from you! Yes, remember as @spyglass says that you only need to click on the comps on this site so they change colour to "viewed" to get your point. No need to view or enter all the comps in the newsletters to get points as mostly they're comp summeries or reminders of comps already listed here unless you want to of course. :) Hope you do all the other things like updating your profile for extra permanent points as well...looking forward to seeing you on the leaderboard soon!
@spyglass Thanks for clearing that up, I hope to creep up there. Have a wonderful,sunny weekend.
@fourleaf Thanks for going to the trouble of explaining that so clearly, I really appreciate your giving spirit and it's great to hear from you. Your good people. I hope you win something extra special this week, I'll think positive thoughts of luck in your direction. Have an interesting weekend mate.
@heidiho73 As long as you complete the major bonus which are mandatory to have a genuine chance you're in the running.-You will NEED to do every day the guessing game. (50 points)-NEED to click on the email newsletter bonus. (30 points)-Visit the home page daily where the competitions are listed to obtain your daily random points (1-10)-Tick off most if not all competitions posted during the current month before they EXPIRE or before the end of the month. As the guessing game has a bonus worth 50 points each day, if miss a day statistically is improbable for a top 10. Still may/likely make the Top 50 if miss only one day. That depends how many active members. Trend seems can miss one miss day currently.For the newsletter email bonus also virtually mandatory (30 points). It will be fairly obvious when that occurs. I.e. Should notice a jump in the leaderboard scores or a dramatic drop in your leaderboard position. Best to log into this site first the click on the bonus link within that newsletter email. The hard part maybe locating that email.Make sure visit the home page each day to collect your daily random points. Just a note for the first day of the month to activate the points system first click on a new comp posted then refresh the main comp page. That's an annoying feature which catches out new members.Only comps posted this month count towards the comps viewed tally. You can miss a few comps posted without too much effect. Thou could make the difference between few positions at the end of the month. It appears you might of missed a couple of competitions so far posted this month. You can use the filter by entered which will display competitions you haven't clicked. Note if was posted this month and already expired it shouldn't be displayed.Good luck :)
Thank you so so much for that comprehensive answer. I am wondering now about the newsletter bonus. Why would it be hard to find the email?
@heidiho73 Argh ... when you got 80,000+ emails between a couple of accounts finding those elusive important emails, especially the winning ones gets "challenging". Lesson is first create a separate comping account then don't then decide to switch back. You get twice as many spam emails. Thou the advantage is you can spot those easier when get them twice.Yeah found a winning email tonight. Nothing major just a PC game. Now if only had a decent PC to run it on.
A new month and daily number is 3, when logged in thought it would be a 1 .. surprised to receive 3 .. not sure why I even bother ... so many years since I've joined and yet to see myself in the top 3, managed to get into top 5.. must have been blue moon.
You can have back your daily scores that you handball to me last month. :)
Sure can be on the low end @Anna2077, I coped a lot of 1, 2 & 3's, with just an odd 6, 8 or a couple of 10s. I started this month with a 3, lol. Good luck
@Try2win thank you, to you too! that's what my last month was like .. got 3's for the last 2 days .. even on my birthday my daily score was 6... in all the years that've been here made it to top 5 one time... never in top 3. SO I give up lol
@Lemond Considering that you've been in top 3 a number of times you don't get to complain. then again you always complain .. sad really
@Anna2077 lmao I was about last month month for the daily random points out of the members that did all the major bonuses. Probably first in the number of comps ticked off if that counts. Any luck this month I'll bounce back. At least for this month got double guesses for the guessing game to look forward to. Never complaining, I'm just handballing back your lovely daily points enjoy. :) It's way too early to get pessimistic or optiministic for the leaderbarod. At least you could of waited until about day 14-21 when start get a good impression if genuinely still in with chance. You be hoping to be around 90 daily points for 14 days or for 21 days around 135. I look at how a each 7 day period where an average around 45 points for each week places roughly the top 1/2 dozen. It only takes a decent run for a few days to turn things around quickly. If I'm ever complaining it's about my PC. I wouldn't wish it on anyone as it's a form of torture. I won't be handballing that when I finally retire it to the scrape heap. I could do with some nice small cash wins this month to help towards the budget for a new PC. X fingers. Good luck,. :)
@lemond can you please contact me on email@example.com as I want to talk some stats with you
@spyglass will get back. Currently my pc is virtually unusable. It's not up to researching and doing any major reading. Sort of feel I'm using a blinds man cane to use it with major display issues. Hopefully will sort out a new PC by the end of the month. Educated guess thinking your qu might be financial/stock market related. Just remember past performance is no indicator of future performance. :)
A new month and new hopes with the extra guess for the guessing game would be great @admin.

I did not receive any points from the last time this was posted?
@wolverine, I sent them a msg via conversation, I have finally been allocated the points yesterday. Hope you get yours soon.
Thanks for that Try2win I have just done the same and received the points straight away.
Great to hear @wolverine
Pick up my $2 glasses from Hyundai today. Anybody won any of the bigger prizes on that comp?Wishing everyone a winning week :) good luck all
Congrats. Those sunnies are getting some press. Big congrats for your new washing machine, :)
Kids love them so that's good. And I must say how impressed I am with Whirlpool cooking, the new machine was delivered to my door in 2 days after winning. Very happy :) Thank you.
@admin I've sent a few messages regarding transfer of Combux to PayPal which have gone unanswered and/or unseen. When will this be retified please?If anyone else is experiencing this "issue" leave a comment below.
I sent a message last Friday and have not had a reply either. Mine was about being (or in this case, not being) awarded the Compbux for participating in the interview.
@Try2win Argh no good a few worrying signs that someone's not on the ball. I hope that also gets fixed up soon. Also last weeks guessing game winners hasn't been announced yet.
Thanks @admin Finally got the compbux transfer yesterday.
@Lemond: I received an email from PayPal confirming my payment yesterday (21/10/17). Yay!
I'm still waiting, no reply, has not even read all my messages, although I am using my cousins paypal as mine was compromised last year and I will never use it again, mmm, still a good site for the mad comps, patience is the virtue :)
@moreofachance Patience is a virtue. Keeps you out of trouble while things sort themselves out.I have almost infinite patience. Think cricket umpiring and one match batted by day and half 328 deliveries for 43 runs. So patience with a pinch of stubbornness. Lmao I think the site has had a server move that wasn't smooth. I got a response on FB. Maybe try there as well.Finally I'm out of my misery as my PC died today. Long long overdue. So... last months win is going to come in handy. Damn one finger typing on an iPad until can get a new PC. Won a couple of pounds one regular 'sponsor'. Hmm I need to pick some lucky lotto numbers from lottoland U.K.
@Lemond patience was not needed, I was also paid two days ago, just didn't realise it, as I said, I love this site for the mad comps and the leaderboard and guessing game are a bloody bonus, I've had a good run in 15 months, twice won and 3rd and also a guessing game, Thankyou @alex @admin, happy Dayz r here
Happy to say I'm the proud owner of a new iPhone. I must commend the promoter, super friendly and excited and very fast delivery. Good luck to all :)
Great win there! Congratulations!
@Smalot11 It's great when promoters are super friendly and fast at delivering. Isn't it @admin? ....
Thanks all :)
Congratulations, awesome win
Congratulations, great win. I won the Pain Away third prize $200 worth of creams.
@sandi.888 Congrats, that's a nice win.
Well done mate!
Got an email to ask my delivery address so can now actually believe I won a TV!So good to get it as we have been using a borrowed one and this will be fabulous in the new house.
Awesome win !
Congratulations! great win!
That's amazing!! What a prize. Enjoy :)
Congratulations. Happy viewing

Done good luck!
Funniest comp of the year goes to: https://www.facebook.com/UbisoftAustralia/videos/10150912194759991/You've still got time to enter. Lmao
hahaha what a comp!!
@Smalot11 What a little ripper. commiserations to who's sitting next to the winner on the flight there.
This is the funniest ever! I really hope a sophisticated woman wins!
@heidiho73 lol yeah will find comps for everyone's forte if look hard and long enough. I can imagine the inflight conservation. 'Hi I'm a bit nervous for my audition. ..... You get some interesting comps from time to time I think one member won a travel comp where can to handcuff themselves to,a case for an extended period could of been days/weeks. I've done where had to keep a hand on a car and have footballs to catch etc etc years ago.
@Lemond Did you win the car?
@Smalot11 What car? I don't usually enter car competitions. Which comp was that for? There is a slight off chance with someone with the same name. I've come across that recently. I won a inflatible ride on toy designed for toddlers which I've gifted. I had to double check that I had entered that comp. Yeah was bookmarked. Argh rarely would I enter such a comp there must of been another prize in the same comp was interested in.
Where you had to keep your hand on the car. Or was that for an other prize?A wins a win :) Nice of you to gift it onto someone.Good luck on winning a new PC this week!
@Smalot11 lol that's was for AFL Grand Final tickets a few years back. Argh lasted for hours then they favoured someone. Ended up with a a cap I've still got. :) Thought I''ve missed an winning email etc. I still reckon half the luck is finding those winning notifications before it's too late. @toxicgherkin :( I think will end up buying a PC in the next few weeks. I can't old out too much longer waiting for the end of month draws.
