In store promotions and competitions - UK

When I am walking round my local supermarket, I not only keep an eye out for bargains, I also look for the word WIN! You would be surprised how many times you see it - and it usually catches your eye on some bold colourful packaging. When I am in the shops with my little cousin, we play a game to see how many times she can spot that winning word - keeps her occupied and her little eagle eyes tend to spot comps that I miss!

On this post, I will be regularly updating it with comps I have seen in store, along with the occasional unbelievable bargain. I will post pictures of the product, so you know what to look for, along with some key points of the T's & C's such as closing date. If these are on sale anywhere, I will try to point that out as well!

If you see any that you would like me to feature (I'll be sure to give you a shout out thanks!) tweet me (@LaurieBeat) or comment below! Happy hunting!
