Win Prizes AND Get Fit!

 I've just come across a fab new app that's perfect for us compers!


And maybe an even bigger bonus if you're a fan of the Pokemon Go and fitness!

Snatch is a fab app I've just come across that let's you walk around whenever you're out & about (or you could go out just to do this!) and collect virtual parcels.

You have to try and keep hold of your parcels for 6 hours - if you manage to keep hold of them without another nearby member snatching it off you, then you get to open it - the boxes contain prizes - anything from the in-game coins which help you get & keep hold of parcels to things like flights, cash, games consoles and more!made

It's a similar idea to Pokemon Go, except instead of catching virtual made up pet-like creatures, you're getting parcels which might contain amazing prizes!

Not to forget the potential health benefits... An excuse to get you out of the house and on the move - you'll be getting fit as you walk around finding parcels and trying to snatch other peoples parcels!

You can buy coins in games that give you benefits - you can use them to snatch other peoples parcels,  you can use them to defend your own parcels from being snatched, you can make yourself invisible from people trying to snatch parcels and so on and so forth...

If you like the sound of it and want to give it a go, why not download the app on your phone and please use my referral code (CTM1XW) as then I will get some free coins to use in game.

2017 Comping Wish List

Well, for the first year ever, I didn't do a very good job of keeping track of my wins in 2016, so I've no idea of my totals.

I'm guessing it was significantly down though as I just found I had less and less time to enter competitions. Not that I didn't win some good prizes though, so I'm not complaining.

I managed to tick off a wish list prize last year - I won a PlayStation 4 from The Football Pools on Twitter - I'd be wanting to win one for ages!! And best of all, it came with FIFA 16 and being football mad, that was just perfect for me!!

Not my win exactly, but another wishlist item was a family holiday abroad. The Walkers Spell & Go promotion bought us this win - both me & Paul (hubby) were entering maximum codes per day, I know we spent a lot on crisps, but it was well worth it as it was a cheap price to pay for a family holiday abroad! Paul was the one who won, he won Budapest, but we chose to go for the £1,500 voucher alternative so we could decide where we wanted to go. We haven't yet booked, but we are very much looking forward to our first ever family holiday abroad in August!

Well, what's on my wishlist for 2017...

1. Bed - we really, really need a new bed, our is beyond broken and extremely uncomfortable

2. Cash - we always seem to have so much to pay out and so little left, so it would be nice to win a cash prize to take a load off us for a while

3. DSLR Camera - I love hobbyist photography & I would love something more than a plain old digital camera to step it up a notch

How did you year in comping go for 2016? Did you win any wish list items? What are you hoping to win in 2017?

Good luck in 2017 everyone!!

Win Your Dad His Own Pub For The Day!

Fuller’s Inns across the south of England are celebrating Father’s Day this year by launching a competition, called My Dad’s Pub, where Dads can win the ultimate Father’s day present – his own Fuller’s pub for the day.



The winner of this competition will have his portrait on the pub sign, his favourite dishes on the menu and a delicious meal on the house surrounded by up to 20 of his family and friends.

Entries can be made here, http://www.fullers.co.uk/fathersday, where photos of your Dad, or anyone in your life who is a father, can be uploaded into a selection of pub sign styles. All that’s left to do is to explain in 140 characters why your Dad deserves to win and then share on Facebook and Twitter.

Jonathon Swaine, Managing Director of Fuller’s Inns and a Brentford Dad, said; “This is a brilliant competition - I can’t wait to see all the entries.  What a better way to say thank you to a Dad on Father’s Day than to give him his own Fuller’s pub for the day.”

Fuller, Smith and Turner P.L.C. is an independent traditional family brewer founded in 1845 and is based at the historic Griffin Brewery in Chiswick, London, where brewing has taken place continuously since 1654. The Company runs 190 Managed Pubs and Hotels and 202 Tenanted pubs, with a focus on outstanding cask ale, great wine, exemplary service and delicious fresh, home-cooked food. The Company also has 649 boutique bedrooms in its Managed estate. The Fuller’s pub estate stretches from Brighton to Birmingham and from Portishead to the Greenwich Peninsula, including 172 locations within the M25. In 2014, Fuller’s acquired a 51% stake in The Stable, a craft cider and gourmet pizza restaurant business. The Stable has 13 sites in the South and South West of England.

The Fuller’s Beer Company brews a portfolio of premium beers including London Pride, ESB, Organic Honey Dew and Frontier Craft Lager. In June 2013, the Company acquired Cornish Orchards, a craft cider maker producing a range of award-winning ciders and premium soft drinks. Fuller’s is also the UK distributor for Sierra Nevada, the premier US craft beer.
