Competition Discussion

    As the competition thread is just for posting links, starting a thread for related discussions/questions.

    As per the post that opened the original thread, it is for posting competition links. Recently, there's been more chats than links making it difficult to check if a competition has been shared already. This results in duplicate competitions being posted and way too many email notifications.

    The likes of Gormal and others very kindly put in a lot of time and effort collecting, checking and sharing competitions. We don't want to make it harder.

    Most seem to be happy with posts saying thanks to OP if you win. Nothing stopping you adding a link to a competition with it though :) Afterall, it doesn't work unless ppl contribute.

    It'd be great if we could keep questions on delivery of prizes/t&cs/answers and chats here. Only share links and wins on the original post.

    Hope this works for everyone!

    I love winning stuff so always up for a chat about what's been working and what's not.

    Ah very good. Anything that's been working for you?

    I only ever win small things, either on local radio, twitter or Instagram. I gave up on Facebook competitions years ago. Wins a win though and it's still lovely when a prize arrives. Magazine competitions where you have to email in seem to be easy enough to win as well. The dream is to win a holiday :D




  • I think Twitter is one of the best social platforms to try win competitions. You can search for specific things you want to win

    Mind me asking how you search? I switch between ppl you follow and local filters, with general search terms like "rt win" "giveaway" etc. I'm not living in Dublin so probably missing most of the Irish competitions.

    Theres definitely more results in the people near me when in Dublin alright. I also type in specific terms like win kaleidoscope, win rds and click latest and all/not restricted. It's good for winning tickets e.g. bloom, taste etc. I'm also sneaky and if you come across someone who does a lot of comping on twitter and I search their twitter handle, making sure not to like or rt their tweets as that's really annoying.

    Does your Twitter need to be on public to win on the competitions?




  • I won on the New York bagel competition. First win in about a year of entering everything. Everything except Facebook and instagram.




  • Instagram seems to be where i'm getting wins from havent won much but got a BBQ from Insta.

    Must revisit Twitter as seems to be a lot of success.




  • If only all the competitions were like the Coke one!

    Almost every competition will ask for a retweet so needs to be public alright.

    Yes. The cost of entering is free marketing for the brand on Twitter.
