What I Won – Check Out My December 2017 Unboxing

What I Won – Check Out My December 2017 Unboxing

It’s the start of another month, which means yet another review of another month of comping!   For those of you that are new to the blog I’m a comper.  You can read more about my comping and why I do it here.  But the short story is that after having to quit work due to keep up with my sons additional needs I needed to find something that meant we could still afford the nicer things in life!

This month I was lucky enough to unbox £764 of prizes.  My 2 biggest wins of the month worth over £500 were won at the end of December so look out for those in next months blog post.  This month was all about the advents.  Out of 23 prizes I won 16 of them were advent competitions and the remaining ones were mainly one off Christmas competitions too.  To see the prizes that I was lucky enough to win and find out how I won them check out my unboxing video below, or scroll down to see a list of all the prizes that were won this month.

    I won the Donald Trump loo roll too; my kids think it’s amazing and the best thing! Lol!

      It was so well received in our house too, Brooke keeps asking me if we can get some more 😂

    Donald Trump loo roll has got to be the most obscurely awesome random prize in a while 😂

    • December 31, 2017 / 9:29 pm

      I think it’s the most random thing I won all year, but also one of the biggest hits in the household!

    Good work also on the RT comps! I get easily disheartened with Twitter and end up forgetting about it too easily – another New Year resolution perhaps?!

      Twitter was the platform I won the most on last year – it’s definitely possible to improve your chances of winning on it 🙂

    I retweet loads on Twitter but i don’t seem to win many on there, instagram was good to me in December as well i think they ramped up the comps on there for advent which was good x

      I won a lot more on Instagram in December than I did on Twitter. That being said my 2 biggest wins came from Twitter in December- you’ll see what they are in next months blog post 🙂

      There’s always a lot more people entering competitions during December as I think more people become aware of them!
