This week's successes: 20th August 2023
We’ve heard from two of the most prolific winners in our travel competition group this week - one with a huge win and one with a prize-winning update. And there’ve also been 3 other winners…
First up, Charlotte who’s renowned for entering and winning competitions which require lots of effort (as opposed to just an online entry form). Statistically, “effort” competitions receive far fewer entries so the chances of winning are greatly increased.
“I’m very happy to have won the IHG One Million competition where you had to say how you would spend 1 million IHG hotel points (I submitted a stop motion animation video and accompanying poem about a tour of SE Asia staying at their various hotel brands). The prize of a million points is worth over £4000 of hotel stays, covering 18 hotel brands such as Intercontinental, Holiday Inn and Iberostar so I have a lot of choice!”
Some of Charlotte’s other wins have included a pair of return Business Class flights to the Philippines worth £4,500, a £5,000 holiday to Cape Town, Kruger and Victoria Falls, and a 7-night holiday to Barbados for 2 with flights, hotel and excursions included.
Leah discovered she’d won a Bridgman competition and will be receiving a waterproof Windsor bronze garden dining set and ‘Sparkling Summer Afternoon Tea for Two’ at Piglet’s Pantry.
And two group members won holidays for their friends by nominating them in a Tanrhiw Glamping competition. There were five prizes being given away in total, and Maria’s friend Jodie and Tania’s friend Lucy will be enjoying a 2-night Welsh glamping getaway.
Finally this week, to “extra-lucky” Dan...
“Just got back from enjoying our Leeds List prize, which included a 2 night stay at the Junction. The Junction was like serviced apartments where they had guest rooms so it was a good base for all the other elements of the prize... Which was mainly food!! We had a large meal at a hip Chinese restaurant, drinks and food at a bar, brunch at a trendy restaurant, bowling, pizza and drinks at Roxy Lanes and a Sunday lunch at the oldest public house in Leeds. There was also a shopping voucher for the shopping centre included and then I used another prize that I won recently with Old J Spiced Rum to go axe throwing as they had a location in Leeds. All in all, a fun weekend, but we also got lucky recently with a baby on the way, which meant it was really hard to spend the amount of some of the dining vouchers as my wife couldn't enjoy cocktails, so had to stick with cheaper drinks!”
Congratulations to Charlotte, Leah, Jodie, Lucy and, of course, Lucky Dan. And thanks for the updates, Johanna and Karen. To join our very long list of winners, make sure you've entered all the competitions open for entries today, and consider joining our Travel Competitions Facebook group, where you'll find lots more giveaways posted daily.
