How often are new competitions added?
Competitions are updated every day at 11am
These will be listed on our Daily Competitions page under the Latest News tab. You can access the latest competitions plus any previously featured competitions.
Social Media competitions will be updated every Friday at 11am. These can be found on our Daily Competitions page under the #FRIDAY Top Social tab. To enter competitions on Facebook and Twitter you will most likely need a free account with the social networks which can be easily created by registering with the site when you follow a link.
Don't worry if you've not been able to get to your computer and enter your daily competitions ; you can check the latest competitions when you log in and view previously listed prizes in the Open tab - that way you won't miss out on any competitions still open for entry!
Can I enter competitions more than once?
Multiple entries are rarely allowed, however every competition has its own set of rules; the number of entries allowed is usually stated in the terms.
When I start entering competitions, will I be bombarded by junk mail, emails and phone calls?
When you provide your name and address details for a competition entry you may be contacted again by the promoter or third party. So look out for the "opt out of further correspondence" clause to prevent this. This often appears in the form of a "tick box" on a competition web page.
P.S. WE HATE SPAM so we don't list competitions from spam generators.
What if a link isn't working?
If you find that a link is not working, it's probably because the competition has closed and the promoter has removed it from their site.
Why do some competitions have entry costs?
Wherever there's a newspaper competition, there's usually a text entry to follow, This can be anything from your standard network rate up to £2.50
It saves the promoters going through bags of post to pick a winner and it allows for those short closing dates that we Coffee Break compers love. Add that to the fact that most people don't bother to pick up their mobiles to enter - and you've got a recipe for success. That's why we like to include them in your daily competitions. So flex those thumbs and text your way to some fantastic prizes.
Why can't I see all of today's competitions?
You may need to refresh your screen to update your page and see the latest competitions.
Do people really win competitions?
YES THEY DO! And I'm lucky enough to hear from winners every day. From small but valued prizes; vouchers, pampering goodies, DVDs and CDs through to the big ones; two weeks in St Lucia, a brand-new Mini and £15,000 cash - they're all happy they won with Coffee Break Winner. Take a look at our prize winners' stories and have a read of some real stories from winning compers!
