comping whinge corner

posted 12-7-2017 @ 01:37 PM www


Beyond a whinge and almost ready to throw myself on the floor in a full blown tantrum! Moved 4 months ago and barely won anything since. Nothing in over a month despite entering heaps! Time is precious and i'm tied of wasting it!!!!:grind::grind::grind::grind:

i agree with you silver. the only thing I "Won" from Plus Rewards were tickets to a caravan and camping show and the tickets never arrived despite telephone calls . Still received no apology or compensation they could have sent me a movie ticket or something?? . I wont be paying for these rewards again, is a complete waste of money! No communication from them either.

Ha Ha, I thought I was the only one getting fat on all that Cadbury chocolate we have to buy for comps, not winning anything in that department, compared to 10 years ago, winning is the only thing that is slimming

After five years of comping I am finding it hard to bother entering a lot of things, maybe it's just me but a lot of the fun seems to have gone out of it.

Or maybe I just need to win the big trip I am still waiting to win, to motivate me!

totally understand - I feel the same... only win tiny little prizes - need a holiday or a car ..I do keep trying though...It has to happen someday.

I totally relate to what you've written. I used to enjoy the challenge of writing a good WOL, but it hardly seems worth it when you're in the running with 2000-6000 other people for very minor prizes and the WOL is in full view of everybody. I still enter comps for cash, cars and experiences & other things that take my fancy, but I've pretty well given up on Facebook comps & have noticed that many of the fun, creatively designed comps have disappeared. I hardly check my comping phone these days. I regularly check my email because I need to delete so many product related emails on a daily basis. I mainly entered and won great prizes via Facebook when I started comping, but those days are gone. I remember winning a prize on Facebook that was valued at $5000. Winning another prize like that seems almost impossible these days when sooooo many people enter. I won't give up comping, but I've got to the point where I'm pleasantly surprised if I win a free movie ticket these days! I don't put in the effort with WOL entries that I used to. If I won something I might feel a little more enthused. My 'Whinge whinge' is over and out now ;)

Thanks everyone, it helps to know it's not only me feeling disillusioned!

onecanonlyhope I'm so with you re the WOL in public view on Facebook. Also feeling doubtful that my answers which I sometimes agonise over for hours are even read, when submitting them online for purchase comps, I think they skim a hundred or so off the top, and all that effort and money is wasted.

I'm getting sick of promoters who don't abide by their own terms and conditions and the competition closes on the right day but earlier than what it says! This has been happening with the Today Show and Sunrise holiday competitions lately. I'll need to enter a few days earlier so I don't miss out.

I agree with you. I wonder whether all the WOL answers are read. I'm not saying I'm the greatest at WOL answers, but I used to regularly win prizes in WOL comps and some of my winning answers took ages to write. It hardly feels worth the effort these days when you see people win prizes with badly written WOL answers that are well above the word limit. Wow I really AM having a whinge today :lol: I should also complain about the weather and world politics while I'm at it. :rolleyes:

Been quiet for me too, but I keep going, because you have to be in it to win it and I always believe the big one is around the corner!

If a company have run a comp and it has been drawn can we general public know the winner or have to wait for the announcement?

Iíve been out of comping for three years, and starting back about six weeks ago. Have been entering about 10-15 comps a day and so far have won..nothing. Not a movie pass in sight. Comping has really changed in the last three years!

Firstly, I apologise in advance for posting here, I am new and didn't really know where to ask this
Anyway, I am just curious from your experience if a promotor calls you to potentially say you win a prize but you cant answer the call for some reason and reject it, do they just pick a different winner and call the next person instead or would they keep trying you?

The terms and conditions usually spell out how long they will try to contact you. Most big prizes seem to have a reasonable time frame, say from a week to up to a couple of months for you to claim the prize, so they would make more than one attempt but they sometimes do and sometimes don't leave a message I have found.
Some of the smaller ones are much quicker in redrawing, but they are generally up front about it in the terms and they are also probably prizes that you are not really hanging out for, so you might consider it worth the risk of missing the call or the time window. I recently saw a comp that said they will call the winner and if they leave a message and the winner does not reply within five hours they would redraw. I think that is a bit steep. You could be at work in meetings all day or overseas in a different time zone.

Thank you so much for replying.
I was at work the other day and got a phone call but could not answer it as I was on my work phone so I had to click it off but when I googled the number it came up as Sunshine Coast Daily which I had entered a competition for but unfortunately they did not leave a message and when I called back it went to voicemail and I never heard anything again....Maybe it was nothing and just coincidental but it did get my mind thinking about how it all works that's all
Thanks again :)
