How to Win Postcard and Internet Competitions

Never underestimate contests on the web, advertisers promote their products through them and real people receive these real prizes and you can too when you learn how to win competitions online.

Kerching and Win will reward you with large cash competition entries when you use their links to shop online as you normally would.

Help me to choose a competition prize.

While there is no secret formula to winning competitions I'll explain what resources I use. Generally I get three prizes a week. I like to get my entries in as early as possible to ensure they are in the draw bag. Some people leave theirs as late as possible but some close earlier than the described closing date, particularly those on the internet. Never be tempted to cheat by filling in multiple entries nor doing them for other family members. This will lead to automatic disqualification if caught: and many sites have specialised software to monitor such cheating.
Do ensure you comply with the site rules and regulations and fill out the entry form out correctly. An online automatic form filler like Roboform is handy to help you do this quickly.

I am selling at eBay due to ill health. This is a rare chance to buy a 10 character domain name that has been live since 2002 and the current bid is low.

I can also transfer the live files on the ftp hosting upon request and the host company provides great support if needed.

Thank you all for the fun we have had over the years, especially running the Born To Loaf competitions where I have given away cash prizes and branded merchandise. It would be great if a Borntoloafer took over the site.

Best wishes to you all.

Competition Postcards

Competition postcards can be obtained from some cinemas and coffee shops and other retail outlets. They usually have an advert from a sponsor on one side and the other side has room for your entry answer and contact details with space for the address. Some sellers on ebay bulk sell them specifically aimed at compers. Their listing usually include a photo. Do ensure with the seller that they are unused and not sold for their collecting interest. Some believe that by using bright and interesting looking ones their entry is more likely to be picked from the hat. There could be some truth in this because many organisers ask a third party to pull a postcard from the mailbag. In some cases they ask children to do this to add a bit of fun. The kids may be more likely to choose a brightly coloured one.

Other people who analysis how to win internet and postcard competitions think that if you cut a serrated edge onto your entry postcards with special crimping scissors this brings more luck. This could be because some organisers put their hand into the mail bag without looking and an unusually feeling one is more interesting to pull out.

Winning Competitions

I sometimes make extra cash by selling unwanted prizes (usually the runners up prizes as I don't enter them unless I really want the prize) on the auction sites listed at the auction websites page where you can read more tips and information.

Visit the Born To Loaf competition websites page with information about the many sites. celebrated its eight birthday in August 2010. Since 2002 have been entertaining, helping users make money or save money and teaching people. We celebrated one birthday with a writing competition and here is one entry which one user sent in the form of this lovely poem:

Dear Chris, I had to write to you,
to tell you what I think.
Since I joined your brilliant site,
Well, I've been tickled pink!
There are lots of competitions,
(Hey, I've even won a few!),
advice on mystery shopping,
how to earn a bob or two!
I've used a lot of discount codes,
and saved both time and cash.
I have you on my favourites list,
so I can find you in a flash!
I've sent for lots of free goods,
played bingo games for free,
I've even tried your recipes,
you're such a help to me!
I love your sense of humour,
you always make me smile.
The advice you give is excellent
and delivered in such style!
What makes the website special?
Why is Borntoloaf the best?
It's what you do that makes it
so much better than the rest!
Sue Reaney
