    Actually good plan too collin - I have been meaning for ages to approach companies that might like people to see their new products or whatever - maybe they want to give them away - we can run them why not

    WTF - this is really my week

    We got another email ....

    I am the features editor of CLEO magazine and we would appreciate it if your members did not post the keywords for competitions on your site as we value our readers actually buying the magazine in order to win prizes. Thanks for your cooperation.

    So please don't post the cleo codes from the magazine either
    Good Luck

    Ack, we've still got loads of comps to enter so I'm not worried

    I think given we're in a recession, any edge businesses can get to increase readership/income is vital right now. If it means codes only available for genuine buyers, so be it. There are hundreds of companies who LOVE compers entering their comps as it increases their web traffic, profile etc, so we'll always have them!

    (I do hope they've equally targetted the 'other' competition sites too though)

    I guess the competitions are to reward people for buying the paper/magazine - I can understand that. Sorry I know that's not going to agree with many people. Most weeks I used to buy all three sunday papers but don't tend to bother so much with the Sunday Herald as I prefer the other two....but even those two I've been a bit slack the last month or two. So I have to confess that yes I have enjoyed being able to access the competitions on here.
    I also buy quite a few magazines during the month (girlfriend, creme,netguid, lucky break among others) and also spend the money on the Treasures Magazine and Oh Baby. LOL yes I spend a bit on Magazines but I don't 'do' anything else so it's my luxury.
    I like how netguide do it now where you have to send in the coupon if you happen to win.
    We just have to accept that these company's are trying to support their supporters so to speak

    What a pity, it sure is a real bummer not been able to enter these comps, but never mind, there is still plenty more that we can all enter. Thanks jo for the information about what we can/can't post here.

    What a can of worms!! Sounds like Fairfax own a lot of competitions. It's a shame that they can't let a handful of people in the back door without getting all het up about it. I mean, what's a few wins here and there? At least we see the value of the magazines and papers compared to our interests and that could lead to new sales. Grrr. Now I'm angry. It's like the movie and music industry complaining that people who download their stuff are hurting the industry when in fact it's the absorbadent salaries of the movie stars and artists that are to blame. I mean, get some perspective!! Sheesh!

    No one loves the little guy anymore. It's all about the money. What about the poor who can't afford these items? "Go suck," that's what they're saying. Grrr!!
