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!!
