There is no better feeling in the world than winning cash or prizes for entering simple competitions or drawings. Sometimes, chances to win require nothing more than an email address, postcode, or home address. These free competitions are available all over the web. Here are a few ways to win cash and prizes in the UK.
• Freebie Sites- Freebies and product testing sites have loads of ways to win cash and prizes in the UK. They often list links to win cool stuff like £15,000 in cash, free laser eye surgery, holidays to places such as New York, and often list the best places to play online games, like bingo, where you can earn free cash!
• Free Lotteries- Prize money can come from revue generated from advertisements on each website. There is no cost, catch, or tricks–just free chances to earn money! The Free Postcode Lottery has given away £38,349.91 in prize money to date and was chosen as a 2014 website of the year. By looking at the homepage of the site, you are able to see in plain sight the most recent cash amount won. In 2015, the highest cash prize was £700.59! This webpage requires a post code and email address to join–that’s it!
• Comping- Entering free competitions (comping) can nearly guarantee some kind of a win–if you diligently enter everyday. Just ask Holly Smith, a full-time mum from Norfolk, who has won over £50,000 worth of prizes in the last five years. Some of her biggest wins include televisions for all six of the rooms in her home, a cruise to Gran Canaria, VIP theatre trips, £300 spending money on a family trip to Alton Towers, and even concert tickets to see AC/DC in Germany. Smith enters around 600 competitions per day–which has certainly paid off.
• Forums- No, you can’t win by posting on forums, however, you can find the latest and greatest competitions by searching through forums. Most forums are extremely active, so you do not have to waste any time clicking on dead links. Also, many forums have a “winner’s circle” where winners post the cash and prizes they have won. For example, a forum on Money Saving Expert has a winner’s circle forum. A 50 Itunes Voucher, £5 code for Parcel Genie, A Backstreet Boys t-shirt , cd, poster and badge, £2,500 cash prize from a Doritos competition, Ipad cases, a Sony phone, a trip to the BAFTAS and a BAFTA goody bag worth £500, and so many more!
It’s loads of fun to be able to enter comps, lotteries, and to play games for free to earn prizes!
