Alison Walker wrote in to tell us about her Shopping Spree, compete with Personal Shopper!
"I have been comping since 2006 and after a particularly lean 2012 things have really picked up this year. I’ve won a balloon flight for two, an electric toothbrush along with £200 worth of Arcadia vouchers, Jazz Festival tickets and Fisher Price toys to name a few.
However, last month I finally won what I call a Biggie. A £2,000 shopping spree with a personal shopper at House of Fraser! I received the call on Thursday 12th September and, after calming down, agreed to meet with the promoters the following day to take my prize, which was to be filmed as part of London Fashion Week. My mum came with me and we were taken for a lovely Italian lunch and then my mum was looked after with endless cups of tea whilst I was made up and treated like a VIP! The timing was particularly good as I celebrated my 50th birthday just two days later. I spent nearly £700 on a designer coat, boots, shoes, dress and several smaller bits!
I check my Compers News immediately upon receipt and highlight any comps that I consider unmissable and enter them as soon as I can. Comping is a brilliant hobby, fun and so rewarding when you win, particularly when you can share your prize with family like I did with this great day."
