How do I know if I've won prizes?

Larger prizes you will usually receive a phone call or mail from the promoter. Smaller prizes will normally be by email.

We always suggest keeping a close eye on your emails for winning notifications (especially spam box) as often this is the only way a promoter can contact you.

You can also take note of the announcement dates of each competition and follow up. Make sure you save the competitions in your Favourites area, as it will stay there for three months after closing.
