Win big this Christmas by taking part in advent competitions. Don’t know where to find them? We’ve found the best ones to start entering today.
You don’t have to search very far anymore to find a competition or giveaway.
Whether it be a RT (retweet) comp on Twitter, a comment and like thread on Facebook, or a prize draw run on a website, you’ve got lots of options.
Comping is cash
If cash is king then comping rules the world!
Winning in a competition is a great way to bring the costs down of day to day living.
Perhaps you need a new item for the home. Instead of heading to the shops and parting with your money, find competitions, enter as many as you can and, with a bit of luck, you’ll win what you need, saving your cash for something else.
Even if you don’t need something in particular, any wins you get could be sold on eBay or Facebook Marketplace helping to boost your savings or even your day to day living costs.
Comping at Christmas
What I love about Christmas is all the giveaways that run.
Instead of a one off comp, giveaways are run in line with advent calendars. Instead of finding a picture, a little chocolate or an item of overpriced makeup (did anyone even buy a Zoella one?!) you’ll win a full sized prize.
Advent competitions give away one prize each day in the run up to Christmas.
The trouble I find is by the time I’ve found someone running a Christmas comp, it’s near to the end of the month and I’ve missed my chance to win half of the prizes!
Have no fear!
Not wanting to miss out, we’ve hunted for some of the best Christmas advent competitions running this year, so you’ve got a chance to start entering them sooner, rather than later.
Fancy trying your luck to win some of the goodies on offer?
