Pacific Magazines:ALSO Womans Day .... Magazine List for checking as per new t&c's.

posted 2-7-2008 @ 03:57 PM www

These are about the only comps I get anything from and does it apply to runners up prizes, I've had a few movie tix from different mags but does it mean if you win from say Famous that you can still enter Girlfriend or are you out of them all cause if you are then that'll be the end of me winning

Just crazy, I have read this at lightning speed and just think sucky sucky sucky. So if Ive won a book or something so small, Im ineligible to win another thing for 3 months, I just cant beleive that. Yes when I joined I used to see similar names popping up all the time, but all it did was get me more motivated to enter knowing it can happen, and it certainly did for me, 2 holidays in 6 months. So I do find it very annoying.:(

Plus the silly part, now if I get an email or winning phone call, it wont be the same excitement, I will be stressing as to whether I am eligible for it or not. CRAAAAZZZYYYY

Lastly, it would be awful if they dont keep a database, I would rather the promoter actually look and say allio cant win this one, and I would be none the wiser, but to have them call me and say I won a holiday, and then have them turn around and say , Nah you cant have it would be heartbreaking. Thats my GRRRRRR

Must also add that Im happy to forfeit a holiday for a time period due to the fact that I have already won one, theres no probs with that, as its fair for all. Would just hate to not win one down the track due to the fact that I won a set of movie tickets. That would annoy me.

I must admit if I won movie tickets I am NOT going to keep a record of when I'll next be eligible to win from any of them...I'm simply not doing it. and if they don't keep a record, then big deal, is some-one else out there in cyberworld going to be comparing the lists of winners from every mag to see whether that person has won two lots of movie tickets from 2 different mags within 3 months...if they are well they need to get a life.
I simply don't have the time, energy or inclination for STUPID rules. mmmahhh.

To have to give up a major prize because you won movie tickets from another is just plain unfair. Perhaps we should boycott them.

If I won a BIG prize well I would keep a record then, but only then.
Also can you imagine the scenario that someone might won something substantial from one mag and a day or two later, having entered quite legitimately in another, also won? What happens if they were both drawn on the same day? Goodness, how will they sort that out?

It's a total nonsense. :mad::mad::mad::mad:

As promised, the Competitons Co-Ordinator did email me today in regard to Pacific Magazines competitions. Not sure whether he has made it clearer or muddied the waters really?

"Firstly, thank you for your email and your interest in Pacific Magazines competitions.

In regards to your questions about the clause relating to Ineligibility Periods for our competitions, this clause does appear in some competitions, however, it varies from competition to competition depending on the preference of the magazine itself. It is thus wise to always read the terms and conditions of each competition to check.

I also appreciate the feedback about the clause and it's potential to alienate some competition entrants. I will discuss your concerns with those participating magazines to see whether they would like to exclude or modify the clause.

Thanks again for contacting Pacific Magazines. We very much appreciate your continued readership."

If I do hear more, I will let you know. But as of now, make of that what you will. I am just going to enter anyway and let fate take its course. Dum-de-dum-de-dum :P

OCW :)

this what i got back from a lady at pacific magazines after my inquiry.

So it seems the 3 month rule doesn't automatically apply to all their competitions but each individual magazine.

I'm with gibbo & OCW on this , I actually had a CD win in Issue 23 of TL! & got it last week just after reading this thread , now the winners list only came out in yesterdays mag , thought it rather odd at the time , they are usually very slow at getting prizes out(1st win in over a year ) .
And just how are we to know when the draw was held , who has the time to read those tiny details if they are even listed .
As for producing the mag (TV WEEK) , I do the comps browse the mag then off to the doctors surgery , I don't have the space nor need the clutter in my little unit .

I'm unsure of my mood right now!

Well that fits with the Instyle comps, as the last few I have looked at, their T&C's state 12 months.

Means we just have to read the T&C's which is a good thing :)

Is this printed in the mag somewhere Nelke?

I rung the T & Cs line too Thorn and your right it does not say "1 win every 3 mths" so I rung Legion Interactive who do the draws and was told the NEW T & Cs are starting next week mid July) and the T & Cs on the 1800 number will be changed to the new 12 week or 3 mth rule....

Anyone wanting to double check the new T & Cs can ring Legion Interactive on

Without reading through the entire thread can someone tell me, if I win can my husband still enter? and can my son still enter kzone? Is it per person or per household?

posted 11-10-2008 @ 09:13 AM www

do I have this right.....if a comp doesn't specifically state that there is an exclusion period then its okay to enter

example Marie Claire trip to Fiji - nothing I could see in the t & c about having won a previous prize

For some time now this clause has been printed with the New Idea puzzles: "Any persons who have won a New Idea cash puzzle prize in the last 12 weeks are ineligible to enter."

Last week, for the 1st time, I noticed this condition has been dropped and replaced with: "Limit of one prize per person per week except for minor prizewinners who will be entitled to win the major prize as well."

They also no longer have their T&cs recorded on an 1800 phone number & are instead publishing the full T&Cs on their website! Here's the link for last week's puzzles:

I noticed that the 3 month ineligibility rule is missing from the full T&Cs as well!

So just letting everyone know that it appears that the "3 month rule" now no longer applies to the New Idea puzzles?!!! :):):)

thank god act isnt included,im contaly buying mags every a single mother and keep money aside just for the mags and try every week....i would be doing it all for nothing
posted 22-4-2012 @ 08:31 PM www

i am so disappointed in the rule of waiting three months before you can win another prize in those magazines as i buy my magazines every week . I love doing my comps as a hobby i am a person with an illness doing my comps fills my days in . Now pacific magazines will be missing out on my money because i wont be buying them now after learning about this rule .:mad:

Well I have never won a thing from a I will keep entering. And if I did win from a mag, I'm POSITIVE I wouldn't win again in 12 weeks.... Id say a year :D:D:D

So I will just keep entering all the comps in all the mags, and by some miraculous chance I win something, I will write it down.

oh opps, I have won from a mag...A thats life clock, about 15months ago! Woo hoooooooooo. :lol:

Yes I would like to be in the position to be worried about too recent a win with magazines. Entered for years with That's Life and Take 5 and won a tiny fake leather jacket.
I think there's been a lot of publicity on tele; promoters think we compers are all raking it in.

on line or mail in?

Could I just ask if I can do both or which one would be more likely to win a prize?
thanks for advice :)
posted 21-7-2023 @ 06:19 PM www

This seems a bit counter-productive. Many people buying the magazines are compers, so if they win a small prize they won't buy the mag for three months or in some cases a year? Ummm. aren't they shooting themselves in the sales foot?:lol:
