"Premium is No 1

Congratulations to Jeannine Barrett of NSW who has won $500 in our Exclusive Competition.

The competition was drawn at random, however we'd love to post Jeannine's entry just the same ....

Prize came when I really needed it

I've won a few small prizes over the years and have loved each of them but recently when my old steam mop was on it's last legs I found a comp with a stunning Black and Decker steam mop to enter and guess what I won it. I may have done a happy dance that day from one end of the house to the other.

March 2014 Blog Winner

Congratulations to Brooke, who wins a $100 Grocery Gift Card, for sharing her Outdoor memories with us:

Memories in a moment
Outdoor prizes remind me of my childhood with my extended family. Swimming during the day or rafting down the river rapids on the lilos that we were going to sleep on. Walking up through the blackberry bushes to catch fresh water cray and skim stones across the water. Nights too were exciting as the temperature dropped and mum cooked one pot food over the tiny electric griller while dad held the torch for her. We then lined up with the other kids at the caravan park showers and stood in our own little sanctuaries for as long as the hot water lasted before being allowed to sit around the campfire with the adults and a hot, yet slighty too watery milo. Going to bed smelling like smoke we were absolutely knackered from a big day outside playing with friends. So much so that we rarely heard the possums screaming murderously in the trees above our tent or even felt the cold of the earth when our lilos went down after being caught on a blackberry thorn that afternoon. I want my kids to experience this too and think that outdoor prizes are the only way that some families- like us, can afford to show their kids and create memories with others. Memories like those above that still bring a smile to my face almost 30 years later:-).

 

Tips on Completing Survey Style Comps

Some competitions ask you to complete a survey that poses questions such as; "Are you interested in funeral insurance?", "Are you interested in donating to charities?", "Are you interested in pet insurance?" etc.

If you are not interested in these products or services, and don't want to be contacted about them, then tick NO.

Ticking YES, does not improve your chance of winning and ticking NO, does not decrease your chance of winning.

 

Warning 'Free' Beauty Products Offer

There is an AdChoices advertisement appearing at the top or bottom of our competitions pages offering free beauty products. This is an overseas based offer that requires you to pay a small amount via your credit card for the postage of the 'free' beauty products.

As usual, it has a catch...the products are not free and if you dont return them within the trial period you will be charged full price for them.

Advertising placed by Google appears on our site and is identified by a small blue flag in the top right hand corner of the advert. When you hover your mouse over it you will see the word AdChoices appear.

Please be aware that these adverts are not approved by Competitions Guide and we do not have any contact details for these companies. If ever you are in doubt, google the name of the company or offer plus the word 'scam' and find out what others say before you hand over your credit card details.

 

Warning - $3,000 US Holiday Competition

We are still get enquiries regarding this so called 'competition'.

Firstly, it appears on a Google advertising banner, it is not endorsed by us and we have no say over what adverts Google puts there.

Secondly, it is not a genuine competition...rather a discount offer. You have to pay a minimum of USD $898 to redeem the offer. They will phone you, from what appears to be a Sydney telephone number, and pressure you into paying the $898 immediately via credit card (which they will debit straight away). They will not email you any information or provide access to their website without payment first. There are no flights included, it is accommodation only.

Thirdly, the whole purpose of the 'offer' is that you must present yourself at a least one (and possible several) hard-sell time share presentations.

They have a 7 day 'cooling-off' cancellation policy...but they make it very difficult to contact them within the first 7 days as they only give you their call centre phone number (no email address). As soon as they get a whiff that you are pulling out they hang up or pretend there is something wrong with the connection etc.
