I've entered the competition every week and it's driving mad that I don't win. I want those tellies and computers so badly!!!
Yep - without exception it is the one competition that I enter week after week. Those prizes are always fantastic. I watch them reading out the list and I mull over what I'd keep, what I'd give to friends and what I'd sell.
Most of it I would keep!
I wonder how many entries they get each week. I have noticed that if I enter the competition on Monday, when they first mention the competition, the "Thanks for entering" text can take 2 to 3 minutes to come back. If I enter later (if I have to look up the answer) or when it is shown on Fiver then the text comes back within 30 seconds. This leads me to believe they have quite a few entries on Monday. Certainly enough to slow their systems down.
I do think its probably a waste of £1.50 entering this every week and I have a rule that I don't normally enter competitions on terestrial channels (I don't like the chances) but when it comes to The Gadget Show, I just keep imaging having all those boxes delivered.
Anyway, it was the last episode of the series so I will be £1.50 per week better off, at least until October.
