It's been 9 years - I'm back

It's been 9 years - I'm back

So, my last post was 13 June 2014. Didn't realise it had been that long.

I have been cleaning out my garage, and like a scene from a movie, I found a beaten up old box of stamps and my mind went back to me sitting on my couch 15 years ago, filling out dozens of competition envelopes and sweating over 25 wol's. I couldn't let those stamps go to waste; Do we still do mail in comps?????

I think the competition landscape has changed a bit over that time but I'm excited to get back into it.

I think I have seen some familiar handles so some people might remember mine. Here's something that will make people feel a bit old, I was on Temptation in 2005 and showed a picure of my daughter Piper as she was 5 months old - well, she started University this year. :)

Welcome back.

Iíve been here over 10 years and seen lots of changes. No more postage stamps for me, very few surprises in the mail now, used to get a couple a week but now maybe one a month if lucky. Most wins are digital vouchers and gift cards - really hard to keep track of and use and some for small amounts like $7 in the latest Sprite comp.

I donít enter Facebook or Insta comps so lots of red crosses as there are a lot!

Things are definitely different but still fun to check my emails each day looking for a WEM but itís been a long time since a MWEM or MWPC.

Good luck and hope you still enjoy :)

I'm back after an extended break too. I was originally Kakadu.

Welcome home. I joined 2014 so we were here together in the days of finding forms in supermarket aisles, buying postage stamps in bulk, using coloured envelopes just to break the monotony and hoping they were lucky and expecting prizes to arrive every week.
You will find big changes but this site is the same except for the search. Gone are trip trip and carcar. You need to use the asterix. #car
There are more small, often trivial prizes offered but some good ones. What you want has no doubt changed too.
For me purchase comps that require a WOL are the best.
Good luck!

Prize wins 2014: $37680
Prize wins 2011: $13000
previous years about $25000

The harder you work the luckier you get

A big welcome back. Hope the wins come rushing in for you. :)

Welcome back. :) The entry landscape has changed, and the prizes seem further apart. I don't stalk the postie anymore!
Heads up. Check Lottos before buying those specially marked products for the new 'instant win' comps. (ie: Arnotts) There are new 'winning moment' style comps where you basically have next to no chance for the customer to win anything. You can have as little as 1 second chance to win, and no second chance draw.

Hello and welcome back. Do you lose your previous name when re joining? Thatís a shame.
I miss mail in comps sooo much. Now you can make a purchase in Woolworths and scan your loyalty card And get automatic entry into competitions with certain purchases. So no effort involved and thousands of people entering, without even knowing it. No wonder it is getting so hard to win.
I always liked purchase competitions, but it is now getting so expensive too. Especially when you have to buy 2 items. At least the purchase comps that you have to enter manually request a photo of your receipt to enter, most of the time. Good luck and have fun.
If you are a 25 wol person. You will have better odds. I purchase the product and stall on entering. Eventually it is the day after the comp closed that I try to enter :sniffle: too late!

Welcome back to both Jesstibb and Kakplum , I've been here 20 years in October so remember you both.

Massive changes in that time, I so miss the old mail in entries but we can no longer rely on Aus Post.

"My spirit is free. But I'll always be near. As long as I'm alive in your heart " That you will be my caring sons .

MY LOTTO MOTTO ~ We are here to help each other , have fun & hopefully win a few prizes along the way .~

I'm unsure of my mood right now!

ďPerhaps it is good to have a beautiful mind, but an even greater gift is to discover a beautiful heart.Ē

"Set an intention...make space...surrender the outcome...and open your arms to receive."

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.

Fear is False Evidence About Reality

Some people dream about WINNING while others wake up and WORK HARD at it!

If you rejoin using a new one, you use the new one and the old one sits idle. If you login/renew with your old name, you keep it.

Welcome back Jesstibb. Lots of luck with your entries.

I'm also back after a long break. I had to add a 02 on the end of my original GeelongSally name, as I couldn't sign up with the same name again. Not sure if anyone remembers me.

I've a little more time on my hands now but everything is so different.
