I'm feeling a little bit blah this week! I've had no new wins since pretty much the start of the month and January is definitely beginning to drag for me. I'm trying my hardest to keep at the comps but am actually starting to feel quite de-motivated; entering lots and winning nothing! I know this hobby has its highs and lows and that I need to persevere, but isn't it hard when you're not reaping any rewards? If you're on the same wave-length as me, head on over to my blog
where you will find some hints and tips for beating the 'dry spells' of comping.
Anyway, on to this week's pick of the comps - no point sitting wallowing; time to enter and hopefully change our luck!
My cousin is currently travelling around Thailand and is soon heading off to Australia; all of her pictures she keeps sharing on social media are making me yearn for some sun! Capital FM is offering you the chance to win a family holiday to Rhodes. Just log in/register and answer the following question here
before 23.59 on 5th February; which artist has a song titled 'Treat You Better'? Suggested answer - Shawn Mendes.
Summerdown Mint is giving away a spa breaks voucher worth £199; which is sure to perk you up. Simply submit your details here
before 23.59 on 31st January.
Fancy a week on board a luxury catamaran in Bermuda? Of course you do! Square Mile has this great prize up for grabs for you and a mate. Just answer the following question here
before 3rd February; what edition of the America's Cup is being held in 2017? Suggested answer - The 35th.
It's back! Ikea's Swipe a Surprise
promotion that I've mentioned the last few times it has run, is on again. Every time you make a purchase in store and swipe your Ikea Family Card
you'll be guaranteed to win something. Prizes range from vouchers for a hotdog to a family holiday in Sweden. On your till receipt will be a special barcode which you can either enter here
or take to the Ikea Family kiosk in store and get it scanned to find out what you have won. The promotion started on 16th January so any receipts you have from then will be valid; and it's running until 12th March so there is still plenty of time to get in on the fun.
I find the dull winter months a struggle to amuse the kids without having to spend a fortune, but if you have a local Pets At Home near you then check out the workshops that they run. They help teach children how rewarding pets can be and how to care for them. They also offer a fun-filled set of activities that include products and pets for a hands on approach to pet care. And above all they are free! You can find more information and your nearest workshop here
As always keep an eye on my blog
over at Simply Prizes
for more competition news and videos. That's it for this week, but I'll be back next Wednesday with some more great comps and special offers. Stay lucky!
