DS4 Seekers Competition Winner Gets His Car

Posted on: August 26th, 2011 by Jason 6 Comments

The one question a lot of new compers ask is “do people win?”. And despite the various posts you’ll find on our forum, across Twitter, on Facebook and even on other sites there’s always that element of doubt. People even search wanting to know if Loquax is legit (it is, it’s like a search engine for competitions if that helps)! So when we found this video showing the winner of the recent Citroen DS4Seekers competition we thought we’d share it.

It shows a genuine winner receiving their DS4 car prize from Citroen. This was a Facebook come mobile app type competition that was a little bit more involved than your average prize draw. But, there was a nice big car as a reward so well done to Wayne Roberts of Teignmouth for winning.

We quite like seeing video clips like this, that show competition winners getting their prizes and wonder whether more promoters would consider doing it? Obviously for the big prizes (Appliances Online for example could film the delivery to their Smeg Fridge winner!!).

It would (or could) be good publicity for the promoter and perhaps convince more people that competitions were genuine. On the other hand, the winners, unless they were extreme compers, might not like the publicity so there’s a bit of a sticking point there!

Anyway, some good news if you enjoyed the DS4 Seekers competitions! You’ll have another chance to win a car in a new competition coming soon. It starts on 13th September so keep an eye on the Citroen Facebook Page for more details. We hope to see a Loquax user in the next clip to feature Citroen’s car winner!

    Nice post, thanks for sharing.For the record I have absolutely no doubt what so ever that the majority of competitions are fair, general rule the bigger the comp the fairer it is. As for the legitimacy of Loquax, that’s not even up for debate..I was recommended to the site about a month ago and have to say it has far exceeded anything I was expecting, would strongly recommend any comper whether novice or experienced you simply have to sign up. My only concern at this moment in time is with lesser known companies that offer rewards for signing up and receiving a monthly newsletter, please in your own interests as well as your subscribers please publish who has won the prize that you were so keen to promote.
    Best of luck to all compers especially those signed up with Loquax

    I think it’s good to see a winner like this. Giving his score as well shows that we all had a chance though it’s disappointing to know that, yet again, it wasn’t me.

    Fantastic – how brilliant to see that! I love seeing winners, especially for big prizes like that.
    Fingers crossed for a Loquat to win the next one! 🙂

    I certainly wouldn’t want the publicity, many people are jealous if you win something – you can see that on loquax.

    As for fairness – people do win but I have great doubts about the fairness of some competitions. Big competitions are usually reasonable, unless they are voting competitions, but with smaller ones I suspect chances are higher if you sign up to their newsletter or buy something.

    And getting small prizes once they have been won can be time consuming.
