Advantages Quality Prizes. Various Competitions. Shows you what you have already entered.
Disadvantages As with all competition sites, More competitions Please!
This is a great contribution to the competition website theme on the Internet. The site as you may have guessed, has various competitions open with various prizes. The catch is that to enter any competition, a short questionnaire is necessary. All competitions are commercially sponsored, which is a good thing in a way as it ensures that the site has a high number of quality prizes. Questions are basic and usually questions regarding the sponsor’s specific product. At the end of most questionnaires you are asked if you would like to receive any more information from the sponsor or if you would like to visit the sponsors website (while in the MyOffers website frame). When you ask for more information, your email inbox will receive an email regarding the product/service of the sponsor, but from a MyOffers.co.uk email address. This helps to ensure the security of your email address. I am not saying that your email address won't be shared with the organisations that you enter competitions with (which will be clearly stated on the competition page or the simple Terms and Conditions, available in a pop-up on every page), but it is a useful feature which helps keep your inbox from being swamped with newsletters and other commercial email.When entering competitions, sometimes the sponsor is another membership site, which offers membership to its services on the competition questionnaire page. If you don't wish to register with the sponsor’s website, a simple "No Thanks" option is available. Best of all you still receive an entry into the sponsor’s competition at MyOffers.
Also, the website has additional promotions, such as extra entries into special competitions for entering a number of the competitions on the website, or as they have done this year, a year long competition to win a high value prize, with entries awarded for just entering other competitions on the website. Also, some competitions have bonus entries into these special competitions, which are clearly marked.One feature of this site, which I really like is the "Show me what I've entered" feature, which is self-explanatory. A tick next to the link to a competition shows you that you have already participated in it. Another useful feature is the "Competitions I have entered but can now enter again" feature, as some competitions will be shown as completed (with a tick) but will allow additional entries every month or so to the competition (with a new set of questionnaire questions).
Registration is simple, and account information is easily accessed and editable once logged in. All emails from MyOffers.co.uk have unsubscribe links and you can regulate your emails via the website. Their is the website newsletter which you can opt to subscribe to via email, and the "Early Bird" email service, which will offer access to competitions not yet visible on the website.I have been a member of this website on and off for many years (as the site has a "Deactivate Membership" function) and have as yet not won a prize.
