March 2019 - It's been a while, sorry!
Sorry we haven't written for such a long time, Christmas was a very busy period for us and then it's just been a crazy start to the year trying to bring you lots of new prizes. So, what's new?
We have some already seen some new products over the last few months including delicious treats from The Black Liquorice Company - have you entered to Win the Year's Supply of Liquorice yet? We never realised quite how popular liquorice is! We also have seen some new vegan friendly prizes from The Friendly Soap Company. And our new Flexi Gift Cards seem to be a hit with everyone - these gift cards give you lots of options on how to spend it - so whether you fancy a coffee and cake break at Costa, new gadgets from Amazon or help putting it towards your next food shop the choice is all yours. As always we love to hear from our members on what products they would like to win, so if there is a particular food or drink brand that you think others might enjoy too then please email us firstname.lastname@example.org and we will try our best to get them on the site soon.
NEW Multiple Winner Prizes - have you spotted the two new prizes that launched this month whereby we have more than 1 winner? This means there is even more chance for you to win a prize. We will be aiming to bring you more of these as the year goes on so keep an eye out for them. The first two prizes end on the 25th March - so watch out in your My Account to see if you are a lucky winner of either a Baby Wow Charlie or a Bloopies Swimming Mimi.
You may have noticed that we had some website issues at the backend of last year and at the beginning of this year. We apologise for the inconvenience this caused and although we have rectified the speed issues (that was causing some of our members to pull their hairs out), we appreciate there are still some glitches that impact a small handful of members. Running websites, particularly one as complex as ours is never easy but we are looking to make some significant backend changes this year so please bear with us.
Once again thank you to all our members for your continued support and we look forward to making lots of happy winners throughout 2019!

The first bit of news - we're giving you the chance to win a car!

Also, our popular advent calendar will be back in a couple of months, so watch out for that.
Finally, contacting winners – we sometimes struggle to get hold off some winners so please add email@example.com to your contact list. If you have won a prize, you will receive an email from us after you’ve claimed so please keep an eye out for it and check your junk folder. We would hate for you to miss out on receiving your prize.
24th July 2018 - Winners
We hope you are all enjoying the glorious sunshine!
We often find that we are chasing responses from winners. Please note that after a winner has claimed their prize we will send an email. We do need winners to respond to these emails before prizes can be sent out - mainly because we don't hold address details on file and because sometimes we require additional information.
All emails are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org - it is possible that these emails may end up in your junk folder. If we can't get hold of you via this email, we will try again via other email addresses or try and seek you out on Facebook.
It would be a big help to us, if you are a lucky winner that you keep an eye out for this email and check your junk folder regularly. You can also try adding email@example.com to your email contact list to help prevent our emails disappearing.
We are currently chasing a few winners so please check your junk folder if you are a recent winner :-)

If you are new to our competiton site then hopefully you have signed up to receive our daily email which will act as a reminder for you to visit the site each day. By entering daily you are increasing your chances to win as every extra entry puts your name into the 'virtual pot' again and again.
Our daily emails come from firstname.lastname@example.org - it might be that your email system is putting these into your junk folder or even blocking them completely. If you aren't receiving them then please check your junk folder to see if you can find previous emails. We then recommend adding email@example.com to your email contact list. If this still doesn't work, then please email us at that same email address.
If you haven't signed up for our daily email they let you know about new prizes, when winners are selected, Lucky 7 updates and any other website news that may be of interest to you. Most importantly they act as your daily reminder!

You’ll also need to select your Google Analytics preferences on the ‘My Account’ page - this is a new requirement bought in by the new GDPR laws.
Google analytics is a tool that allows companies to monitor the performance of their website. It allows them to see how many people are visiting, where in the world they come from, how they got to the site (direct or via another website), what pages are popular and so forth. It does not know who 'you' are, and nor do we know when you are on our site.
We can't force you to say yes to Google Analytics but please bear in mind that it is a very essential tool that we use daily and it would be very helpful if you did allow us to follow 'you' on our site - just remember we still won't know who 'you' is!
Step 1 - Select your Google Analytics choice
Step 2 - Scroll down to the Consent section - under Required where it says 'Creating an Account with us - T&C's' you need to click and tick the box so the tick goes green
Step 3 - Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click SAVE.
PLEASE ENSURE ONCE YOU HAVE AGREED TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS AND CHOSEN YOUR GOOGLE ANALYTICS PREFERENCE THAT YOU CLICK THE SAVE BUTTON AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.

If you haven't read our GDPR update page then please do take a look so you can understand some of the changes coming your way. You will notice a new cookie consent form on our site, where a white box will appear on your page asking for advertising cookie consent (we REALLY want you to say yes as the ads fund this site - if enough of you say no, we won't make enough money from the ads, won't be able to buy the prizes and the site may have to close)

Some of you may have already noticed but for those of you who haven't please note that the Winners List has now moved from the bottom of every page to the top right - located next to your My Account and Lucky 7 Account links.
We apologise for not emailing out the reminder about the Lucky 7 clock resetting in a few days time, it's been a busy month and we forgot! If you are new to the site and to Lucky 7's then please note at the end of each month the clock resets so any stars not converted will be lost.

- You can only gain a maximum of 1 star per day
- When you collect your 7th star, the stars will automatically convert into an entry and your counter will revert to 0
- You can see how many stars and entries you have by clicking on the Lucky 7 link next to My Account and the Winners List
- The Lucky 7 clock resets at the end of each month, any stars not converted will disappear

26th February 2018 - cakes, cakes and more cakes!

This fantastic prize includes their popular Double Chocolate Brownie Mix, a Chocolate Brownie Mug Mix, a Chocolate Brownie Mug Gift Set and 5 x Chocolate Brownie Single Pots - keep it all for yourself or share it this Easter with your friends and family.
Bakedin began life in 2013. Two friends who both loved to cook and had the idea of a time saving baking kit that still gave the full baking from scratch experience but with a little less hassle – and so the Bakedin baking kit was born. Bakedin sell a range of baking kits including Brownies, Cinnamon Buns and Layered Cakes. Designed to be easy to bake, each kit comes all the dry ingredients required plus a step by step guide so yes, even if you novice bakers can create something delicious.
Bakedin are also giving you the chance to save 60% off their Bakedin Baking Club. You can choose from a one off box, a 3 month or a 6 month subscription. Each month they’ll send you a unique baking kit with a recipe by Michel Roux. Their kits contain all the dry ingredients, an easy to follow recipe card and some handy extras like the baking paper. All their flour is local to them in Hampshire and they only use top notch Belgian chocolate. Some of their past boxes have included Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Malt Cake, Cinnamon & Pecan Loaf and Chocolate & Caramel Eclairs. This is a fantastic offer, so definitely worth grabbing it whilst you can!

Here at Competition Towers, we highly recommend Wright’s Baking Mixes – they are so easy to bake and taste amazing, so even if you aren’t lucky enough to win this time it’s worth going down to your local supermarket and picking up one or two of their mixes to try - or check out their online shop.
19th February 2018 - a reminder about Lucky 7's and 'missing stars'
We sometimes get emails from users who think they might be missing stars, but we're pleased to report that there has NEVER been a case of stars actually going missing. The fear that some have gone missing almost always comes down to a missunderstanding about how Lucky 7's works, so we thought we'd post a small reminder.
Lucky 7s is a reward programme. It allows regular users to earn stars and collect entries into a Lucky 7 Prize Draw.
Stars are awarded automatically by our iWon system - all you have to do to earn a star is enter 7 comps in one day, but you can only earn 1 star per day - if you enter more than 7 competitions in one day, you will still only gain 1 star for that day.
Once you have gained 7 stars the iWon system automatically converts them into 1 entry for the Lucky 7 Prize Draw (which is currently a £300 television). At this point, your star count will revert back to zero, but your prize draw entries counter will show 1. You can then collect 7 more stars by entering 7 comps in 1 day, 7 times, and then the system wll automatically convert them again and your prize draw entry counter will now show 2, and so on.
You can click on the Lucky 7 tab next to My Account at the top right of the page to reach your Lucky 7 Account page and on this page you can see how many entries you have for the current prize draw and how many stars you have waiting to be converted.
If you have entered 7 competitions but your star counter hasn’t changed, you simply need to refresh your page, or log out and log back in again.
The Lucky 7 Prize Draw runs for three months, at the end of each month the star count resets, which means at the end of each month any unconverted stars will disappear (sorry!). We do this to maximise the chances of a regular user winning the prize draw rather than someone who came just 7 times in 3 months (and getting just 1 prize draw entry, which we think is fair and in line with what you would expect from a rewards programme.
Sometimes you might see a Golden Star in your account - if you do, this is because we've awarded you a star for free. We do this simply because it's fun to do and we like giving things away for free, and every Golden Star is a little help for you toward collecting another 7 stars and another prize draw entry.
As with everything on the site, we're open to suggestions of how we could improve the Lucky 7s expereince, so please feel free to email email@example.com with your ideas.

14th January 2018 - Improve your digestive health with Simplee Aloe
Have you entered our latest prize to win a fantastic bundle of Simplee Aloe drinks and supplements to help aid your stomach’s digestion? It can be found in our Food & Drink competition section. This amazing prize is worth £138 and one lucky winner will receive a case of each flavour of the Simplee Aloe health supplement (original and cranberry) and a case of each of their aloe vera waters (with aloe pulp and without aloe pulp).
Simplee Aloe was born after two friends, Alex and Ray discovered the goodness of aloe on a trip to Asia. Back in the UK, wanting to continue with their new love addiction to aloe, all they discovered were super sugary and processed juices with very little aloe inside… And so Simplee Aloe was born! Known to the Egyptians as the ‘plant of immortality’, Aloe Vera is the original superfood which has been used for over 5,000 years for its powerful healing properties, even by Cleopatra herself! Below are just some of the amazing benefits of Aloe:
Digestion Support - For those who are looking for good digestive health, aloe vera is a natural prebiotic and therefore helps to establish the natural bacterial flora in the digestive system. Not only that, but aloe vera's soothing gelatinous properties help food move through the intestinal tract with ease, absorbing toxins along the way to aid the detoxification process. Aloe vera’s naturally occurring anti-inflammatory enzymes help those with gut issues such as IBS.
Immunity - The polysaccharides within aloe vera stimulate white blood cells to help strengthen the body’s immune system and support in fighting against viruses, thus making aloe vera a restorative essential and a boosting tonic for those under the weather.
Clear, Glowing Skin - It doesn’t stop there! Aloe Vera’s antibacterial properties combined with its anti-inflammatory factors can prevent and reduce skin inflammation. When consumed, they provide the skin with a natural source of moisture that can contribute to a glowing complexion and the high levels of antioxidants can help combat free-radicals that are known to contribute to the ageing process.
Now you've heard all the benefits of Aloe Vera, why not try it yourself? We have an exclusive offer to save 35% at the Simplee Aloe shop just give us consent on the competition page and you will receive your discount code after this prize draw has ended.

After the melee of Christmas and New Year, we all start to focus on eating healthier and getting fitter, but what about our pets? Bella the Wonder Dog and Rocky the Competition Cat are always asking us to find them food that's of a higher quality and healthier for them (honestly, they do!) so we've found a great brand called Pooch & Mutt who want to lead a pet food revolution - here, in their own words, is what they're doing:
"The majority of pet food sold in the UK is made by the same confectionery companies that are behind the obesity epidemics in our children.
We don't think this is right. We don't think this offers customers the choice and quality that they deserve.
We think that there should be more honesty in pet food, both about the ingredients that go in to the foods and about who is behind the foods. We want customers to know what they are buying and who they are buying from."
So visit them now and check out their offers - Pooch and Mutt
