18th January 2018 - Create memories with your famiy with these new prizes
Finding ways to keep the kids or grandchildren amused without breaking the bank is an ongoing challenge. It’s hard to believe that in less than four weeks the schools break up again for February half term - it feels like they’ve only just gone back to school after the Christmas break!
Here at Competition Towers, we’re always working hard to bring you prizes that will help save some pennies and give you and your family a great day out. This week we have launched two new prizes in our ‘Family’ section that will give the lucky winner and their family a fun day with their family during the upcoming school holidays.
Enter to win a family ticket in time for February half term. If you haven’t yet visited Drusillas Park then add it to your list of things to do with the kids. With so many exciting animals and attractions you will have a wild time exploring this award-winning zoo in East Sussex. Discover their brand new Close Encounter experiences for 2018! Come face to face with some of the zoo’s most popular residents, from sloths to anteaters, camels and red pandas.
There is so much to see and do you won’t be disappointed. During half term you can see the debut appearance of PAW Patrol’s Skye and Rubble on 14th Feb and say hi to Hello Kitty on the 15th Feb.
Located just off the A27 in Alfriston, East Sussex, Drusillas Park is open daily (with the exception of 24, 25 and 26 December).
Enter to win a family ticket to visit the popular Diggerland, with four locations to choose from in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire. Diggerland prides itself on having something fun for all ages – and with 20 different rides and drives at each park with over 100 machines; there really is something for everyone!
Experience the thrills of spinning around fast in a Giant Digger bucket on the Spindizzy ride, operating a Giant JCB 806 Digger, racing around in a Go-Kart, getting lifted 50ft in the air by the Skyshuttle, whirling around on the Dig-a-round carousel and so much more! Also let the kids drive a REAL car!
Is there somewhere you would like to take the kids or the grandchildren? Feel free to drop us an email and let us know your prize suggestions for things to do with kids at firstname.lastname@example.org
14th January 2018 - Improve your digestive health with Simplee Aloe
Have you entered our latest prize to win a fantastic bundle of Simplee Aloe drinks and supplements to help aid your stomach’s digestion? It can be found in our Food & Drink competition section. This amazing prize is worth £138 and one lucky winner will receive a case of each flavour of the Simplee Aloe health supplement (original and cranberry) and a case of each of their aloe vera waters (with aloe pulp and without aloe pulp).
Simplee Aloe was born after two friends, Alex and Ray discovered the goodness of aloe on a trip to Asia. Back in the UK, wanting to continue with their new love addiction to aloe, all they discovered were super sugary and processed juices with very little aloe inside… And so Simplee Aloe was born! Known to the Egyptians as the ‘plant of immortality’, Aloe Vera is the original superfood which has been used for over 5,000 years for its powerful healing properties, even by Cleopatra herself! Below are just some of the amazing benefits of Aloe:
Digestion Support - For those who are looking for good digestive health, aloe vera is a natural prebiotic and therefore helps to establish the natural bacterial flora in the digestive system. Not only that, but aloe vera's soothing gelatinous properties help food move through the intestinal tract with ease, absorbing toxins along the way to aid the detoxification process. Aloe vera’s naturally occurring anti-inflammatory enzymes help those with gut issues such as IBS.
Immunity - The polysaccharides within aloe vera stimulate white blood cells to help strengthen the body’s immune system and support in fighting against viruses, thus making aloe vera a restorative essential and a boosting tonic for those under the weather.
Clear, Glowing Skin - It doesn’t stop there! Aloe Vera’s antibacterial properties combined with its anti-inflammatory factors can prevent and reduce skin inflammation. When consumed, they provide the skin with a natural source of moisture that can contribute to a glowing complexion and the high levels of antioxidants can help combat free-radicals that are known to contribute to the ageing process.
Now you've heard all the benefits of Aloe Vera, why not try it yourself? We have an exclusive offer to save 35% at the Simplee Aloe shop just give us consent on the competition page and you will receive your discount code after this prize draw has ended.

After the melee of Christmas and New Year, we all start to focus on eating healthier and getting fitter, but what about our pets? Bella the Wonder Dog and Rocky the Competition Cat are always asking us to find them food that's of a higher quality and healthier for them (honestly, they do!) so we've found a great brand called Pooch & Mutt who want to lead a pet food revolution - here, in their own words, is what they're doing:
"The majority of pet food sold in the UK is made by the same confectionery companies that are behind the obesity epidemics in our children.
We don't think this is right. We don't think this offers customers the choice and quality that they deserve.
We think that there should be more honesty in pet food, both about the ingredients that go in to the foods and about who is behind the foods. We want customers to know what they are buying and who they are buying from."

18th December 2017 - 62 UK Competition Winners Last Month
We're always trying to keep things fresh, with new prizes and new sections. This month, we've bought you our Advent and Christmas sections and have put live 51 new, and totally free prizes this month and chosen 62 winners!
We've just launched another new section so you can now find a category for Gift Cards. Everyone loves winning gift card and e-gift cards, so we thought it was time to dedicate a section on the site just for these and hopefully you will be one of the lucky people to win!
To kick the section off, we have added two new prizes today - one to win a gift card for Fat Face and one for a £10 gift card for The Restaurant Group. Look out for more gift cards going live over the next few days.
Remember, as with all our prize draws, the best way to increase your chance of winning is to enter daily - this means your name will enter in the 'pot' every time you enter, so the more times you come, the more chance you have.
All our prize draws are free to enter and drawn by a computer than randomises the selection. This means you can win more than once, and yes, this has happened, so even if you've won, keep coming back to try again!
13th December 2017 - Win a £100 Argos Voucher with Lucky 7's
We only have few weeks left until our first Lucky 7 Prize Draw ends and one lucky person will win a £100 Argos gift card. We will then select a new prize and the next Lucky 7 Prize draw will run from January until the end of March 2018
So, how does it work?
Lucky 7's was designed to reward users who regularly come to the site. If you weren't aware of this, the here's how it works:
Every day that you visit the site and enter at least 7 competitions you will earn 1 Lucky Star
You will then collect stars until you have 7 at which point they will disappear and convert into 1 Entry into the Lucky 7 Prize Draw. Don't worry you can see how many entries you have in your Lucky 7's Account Page (see link on the website, located at the top right above the navigation bar)
Each month the Lucky 7 clock resets so any stars that haven't been converted into entries will be lost. We will send a reminder about this on email (you will need to have said Yes, to receive these - and you can change this in your My Account)
Every now and then we randomly give out free Golden Stars - these can help you on your way to reaching 7 stars.
We will be announcing our next Lucky 7 Prize Draw before the end of the month.

30th November 2017 - A Guide to Advent Competitions
Can you believe it is December tomorrow? How crazy is that, it has come round so fast! So, tomorrow is the big day for all the Advent competitions to go live – and it's likely going to be bigger and better than last year, with so many more companies taking part.
Here are some helpful comping tips for dealing with Advent competitons that we hope you'll find useful
1. Only enter for prizes that you really want to win, you could get swayed into entering everything but believe us, this will help keep you sane!
2. Make sure you have cleared out your email account so that you can easily spot any winning emails that come through – also keep an eye on that junk folder as people miss out on prizes that sometimes go in there
3. Think about warning your non-comping friends that your social media pages may get clogged up with competitions – you want to be winning stuff, not losing friends
4. Bookmark websites – create a new folder, and then put every site in here so Day 2, 3 and so on will be so much quicker
5. Sites like ThePrizeFinder, Loquax and CompetitionDatabase will have lists so use them to help you find prizes but also to track which ones you’ve entered
6. Be happy, this is meant to be a fun time of year, don’t worry if you miss an advent there will be plenty to keep you busy but you don’t have to do them all
7. Remember, whilst everyone is busy focusing on advents – normal competitions will be running – so if everyone else is doing advents perhaps make it your mission to mix it up
8. Be careful for scams and fake companies - use your instincts if something looks to good to be true - then it most likely is. Check the official company website or social pages to check the prize is from them. If a company has only got a few followers, check their profile page and make a judgement call - don't just follow everyone else - be protective of your data and if it's asking too many questions check and see if it's a legit business
Our own Countdown to Christmas Advent will be starting tomorrow – if you have given consent to receiving our emails you will receive an Advent email every day. We have some great prizes – each one will only be open for 24 hours and you will only have 7 days to claim your prize in My Account so don’t forget to check and see if you have been lucky!
Good luck and enjoy the countdown to Christmas
