Hints, Tips & FAQs

If you’re serious about comping then here are some hints and tips we recommend to improve your chances of winning and also to help you apply for as many competitions as you can in the quickest possible way. 

There are some people out there who actually comp for a living without the need to work. Sounds crazy? It does, however, it is possible. But it really is a numbers game and it also depends on how lucky you are, I guess.

There are some things you can do to help your chances in winning though.

Tip 1.

First things first, it is wise that you get free antivirus software on your computer if you haven’t already. Avast does a good free version.

Tip 2.

Second of all. The trick is to enter as many competitions as you can but first before you do that we recommend that you create an alternative email account just for entering competitions. That way you won’t clog up your personal or professional emails with spam. Just remember to check that email account often to see if you’ve won any competitions and also, some competitions require you to reply back to them by email so you might want to check that regularly too, so you don’t miss out. Also always check your spam folder.


Some competitions ask for your telephone number. If you do not feel comfortable giving out your personal number, then a way around it is to buy a cheap sim (or if you are in the UK you can even order a free sim online off giffgaff.com). That way you can just check the voicemails regularly to see if you’ve won any competitions avoiding any unwanted telemarketing calls. Just remember to check it often in case you have won any of them!

Tip 4.

Some competitions are easier than others and some need more information. In order to fill in the required data to enter the competitions we recommend you install something like Roboform, which is a program that automatically fills forms and competitions out for you. You just fill in all your data once and then any form or competition you need to complete it will automatically input it the answers for you. That way you don’t have to enter every field of the competition every time you enter a new one as it does it automatically. So it saves a lot of time and a lot of energy and helps you complete competitions a lot more quickly. 

Tip 5.

Another tip is that the competitions that ask for more info are usually the ones you have more chances of winning. As most people are lazy and can’t be bothered to fill in so much information which means fewer people enter which gives you a much higher chance of winning.

Tip 6.
