By now, hopefully, most of you will be aware that the advent competitions have started. This year has been astonishing for the sheer volume of promotions that are running across websites, Facebook, blogs and Twitter. We’ve looked at so many advent competitions we’re now seeing numbers on anything and everything that has a door or window.
First of all though there’s one advent competition you should be entering and that’s our very own Loquax Advent Competition. If you’re logged in to the site entry is simply one click and you’re in our daily draw to win a lovely blue Loquax Mug. This year we’ve been joined by Groupon who have sponsored the weekly prizes. We have 4 Â£100 vouchers to giveaway. If that wasn’t enough then at the end of the competition one lucky person will get themselves a Kindle courtesy of Loquax.
Given that our competition should be your first stop and then your second should be our lovely lists of advents – what to do about the volume? Our advice is don’t try them all – seriously! There are some nice prizes on offer (Barclays, Classic FM, My Daily, Next, Ted Baker for example) and so you may want to focus on them! Facebook fans have plenty to choose from too – and you have your own list– but choose your favourites and go from there.
If you’re on Twitter you might notice there aren’t too many competitions listed – we’ve done the ones we know about but as they tend to be 9am to 5pm it’s tough to catch them all – at least today!
Some compers have remarked that the volume is a little offputting… we’d agree. So head to the usual competition listings (as yes we have been doing them too) and get on with your day to day comping hobby whilst others manically try and do the advents. You will find advents included in the listings so if one catches your eye or has a prize you’re after then you don’t have to miss it.
Mind you, if you feel like we do at the moment, you probably won’t want to see another advent competition for at least another 12 months!
