Hi everyone

This question is for anyone and everyone to answer if you'e won anything online from comping. I'm sure you can remember that first time you found out that you'd won a competition, so I'm curious to know what was your first (no matter how big or small) win?

Thanks
Abby

I've won too many things to remember online, but my first ever prize was from a local butcher. I had to name their mascot. My entry got picked and I won a huge breaded ham, which was delicious and was shared amongst my family.

My first ever win long before online was a pair of roller skates. I had to make as many words as possible from MCVities chocolate biscuits. As I was home ill and bored I made hundreds. I was not able to use them at the time so my mum persuaded the local toy shop owner to swap them for a game of monopoly.

I also won a table cloth in a coronation draw when I was a toddler but I don't think I was very impressed with that.

Not from comping but when I was 12 I won an arcade game competition at a car dealership. The prize was a track day at silverstone and because I was too young they gave me a cheque for £100. It felt like a fortune.

6 bottles of Moet from a job site just before Xmas many years ago. This was ironic as I had worked for a local company for 2 days and hated my boss so much I had to resign - he was a complete tool.

I know this post is a couple of months old but I remember my first win - it was in 2008 and it was a £100 TK Maxx gift card. Then 2 days later I won my biggest ever prize - an entertainment package worth £4k. Haven't won anything as exciting since, but then I don't enter the competitions any more.
