Christmas comes but once a year, so dig out the selection box, dust off your Santa hat and enter (drumroll please)

THE MUMSNET 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS COMPETITIONS!

tchshock

For the next 12 days, on our Facebook page, we'll be giving away a FANTASTIC prizes every day, including a Kindle Fire HD, a £100 chocolate hamper, £250 of theatre tokens, £350 kids clothing voucher, a £250 beauty hamper.

And that's just on Facebook. There are even further delights to be found on MN, where, to double the fun, we're running ANOTHER 12 Days comp. That's right: two prizes, everyday, for the next 12 days. You're welcome tchgrin

Don't worry about your Mumsnet nickname being linked to your Facebook profile; there's no way the two could be linked from entering our competition. You can enter both competitions, FB and on site, and try your luck every day - so please don't hold back tchwink

All together now

bah humbug!

Personally I've always found the dulcet tones of Slade soothing when hungover tchsmile. brew to revive you.

RussTDaviesBear Sun 01-Dec-13 11:15:53

I just entered on my iPad, but the page just blinked at me and stayed the same - no 'Thank you for entering' or anything, so I don't know if I've actually been entered or not....

DameDeepRedBetty Sun 01-Dec-13 11:16:48

Already on my third brew thanks KateS! Might be able to face breakfast soon...

Hm, give it another go Russ? If you've been entered you'll get a message saying only one entry per day.

HarkTEEHeraldAngelsSing Sun 01-Dec-13 11:40:20

I mentioned this on FB, but have had no response.

Aren't the 12 days of Christmas from the 25th to 6th January?

I'm Jewish, so I could be wrong...

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 11:43:16

I was going to point that out, Hark

but I'm scared to

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 11:44:10

And do I really have to join FB to enter?

AuditAngel Sun 01-Dec-13 11:45:28

Russ, it didn't let me into the competition until I "liked" the page.

Ragwort Sun 01-Dec-13 12:30:35

What about those of us who don't do understand FB <sob>

Is this discrimination against Luddites? grin

It does say that the competitions are onsite, as well as on FB - I assume they are on the Competitions page.

CrewElla Sun 01-Dec-13 13:32:41

Click on the MN in the original post to enter the onsite comp

Is there a way to enter other than having to join Facebook? Twitter?

I'd like to play along, I entered a comp via MN site (It's a different prize though.?)
Hate Facebook sad

Also MNHQ

Is namechanging to a new name allowed for purposes of competition entering?

ExitPursuedByAChristmasGrinch Sun 01-Dec-13 14:43:46

RTFT! Honestly.

Bah Humbug.......

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 15:25:40

I do like your name, Exit.

I can't see it anywhere on the main site hmm so it is definitely discrimination against gimmers.

HarkTEEHeraldAngelsSing Sun 01-Dec-13 15:29:38

There is a FB comp and a MN comp.

Yes you have to be in FB to enter the comp there. That's why it's called a FB comp.

It's not discrimination. Being a unable or unwilling to be on FB is not a "protected class".

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 16:13:40

Yes, but the prizes aren't the same <sulks>

Us non-Facebookers are second class citizens.

The main prizes should be for people who are on the main site.

<sulks more, in Grinch-like Gimmer fashion>

Did I mention sulking?

HarkTEEHeraldAngelsSing Sun 01-Dec-13 16:28:51

Yes. And it's not attractive. tchgrin

On another note, did you see the thread with you in the title?

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 17:09:27

Oh, God, no shock

What have I done now?

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 17:14:50

Found it.

HoneyD, what a surprise grin

rpitchfo Sun 01-Dec-13 17:35:34

Will you announce the winners in this thread?

I have entered on fb but I use a diff name on fb than I have put in the boxs my fb is a shorten version of my birth name and surname is diff on fb (stops family and ex finding me) is diff but my email is the same as my mn log in does it matter

ExitPursuedByAChristmasGrinch Sun 01-Dec-13 17:59:57

Yes Maryz. But you liked my Dr Who name too. And that came to naught. You and I clearly have more style.

<judges everyone>

PuhpullPlaylow Sun 01-Dec-13 18:07:59

I too have entered via iPad on Facebook.

How do we find out who's won and when? wink

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 01-Dec-13 18:56:25

Sorry if the OP wasn't clear enough, but yes, we're running a Facebook version AND an onsite one - here. You can enter both, neither, or one or the other, whatever tickles your fancy. The same prizes aren't the same on both, but they're equally delightful, and variety is the spice of life tchsmile

If you win one of the competitions on Facebook then we'll email you, using the email address you submitted on the form. So don't worry too much about NN or full names, as long as it's an email address you regularly use.

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 19:01:15

Oh, thank you Kate.

But be fair now. The prizes don't appear to be quite the same - a trip round Moshi-ville vs a Kindle Fire?

<continues to sulk in Grinch-like manner mostly to annoy Tee >

KateSMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 01-Dec-13 19:27:47

Maryz

Oh, thank you Kate.

<continues to sulk in Grinch-like manner mostly to annoy Tee >

Ahh, but who knows what is coming on the OTHER days? I did know, but can't find the email tchblush It's some pretty awesome stuff though, promise you that.

Mulled wine anyone?

IamtheZombie Sun 01-Dec-13 20:43:39

FB won't let Zombie enter her MN nickname. May she still press the ENTER button?

Ooh - mulled wine - don't mind if I do!! <<hic>>[thcconfused>>

tchconfused

Maryz Sun 01-Dec-13 20:59:20

Oh yum, yes please.

Better than a kindle any day.

You might want to edit the GLTC blurb to reflect the actual name of the company...

Maryz Tue 03-Dec-13 18:45:53

So far we have had moshi hq in London, a free sat thingie that won't work here and TGLTC which I refuse to order from because of their astronomical delivery charges to Ireland hmm

You really don't like us over here do you sad?

Sorry about that FairyJen - we'll try to unbugger this now

I managed to get round it on iPhone despite no submit button. After entering email address I pressed enter on the iPhone keyboard and it submitted.

...is today's competition available on the initial Mumsnet page - I get a message displayed to say that it is private ???

nannynick Sun 08-Dec-13 16:16:39

No, the link on Mumsnet home page is wrong. Just tried that myself.

You can get to it via the Mumsnet 12 Days Competition page.

connburt Sun 08-Dec-13 18:08:24

Hello I'm new on here.... Merry Christmas!! Happy New Year....

lookoveryourshouldernow Sun 08-Dec-13 18:09:10

..found it - thank you for replying....

poorbuthappy Mon 09-Dec-13 15:39:16

I haven't managed to get to the right competition from the right link yet!
Everytime I click on either the FB 12 days, or the MN 12 days link telling me the prize, I always get taken to a different prize. Tis very confusing. Then of course there is the private message too.

Has tech finished early for the hols and Elf taken over? fwink

nannynick Mon 09-Dec-13 18:04:26

The competition links seem to work fine when using Facebook App on iOS.

If it is any help, this is today's Facebook link (NoMoreSugar)
and this is today's Mumsnet.com 12-days competition (Butlins)

It may depend on the time of day you click the link... the Facebook one seems to have each day as being 10am-9:59am GMT.

On the Mumsnet.com home page, one link (On the 9th day of christmas mumsnet gave to me) works, but one link (day 9, win a vip butlins trip) does not.

For the Mumsnet.com 12-Days competition, probably best clicking the link from 12-Days Competition Page as that seems to work.

With luck TECH will take a look and fix things.

JulieMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 09-Dec-13 18:07:31

Hi, nannynick.

Many thanks for flagging this to us. We've passed the details on to tech so fingers crossed.

nannynick Mon 09-Dec-13 18:31:18

Thanks Julie. Feel free to delete my post if you do not want the Facebook link to be accessible from here.

For those who get to the right page but do not see the form - I find entering the competitions works best using Chrome browser on PC, or using Facebook App on iPad. Not sure what the code does but I think there may be something that can upset some browsers, so if you get to the right page but then can't seen the entry form, then use a different browser if you can.

Thanks for that v helpful post nannynick - you have seen to the heart of it!

As there is a different competition everyday, both on Facebook and onsite, sometimes links might get a bit skewiff, but we'll do our best to keep them updated.

To be sure you're going to get today's comp - check the onsite landing page, and our Facebook page. Today on Facebook we're giving away £250 worth of theatre tokens fsmile

Ahem, we feel duty bound to tell you all that today onsite you could win A CAR!!

We'll be giving away another one on Facebook tomorrow, so you can try your luck twice!

minsmum Thu 12-Dec-13 19:43:40

the link to the answer doesn't work well at least it doesn't for me

ZombieFromTheRealmOfGory Thu 12-Dec-13 20:57:07

It didn't work for Zombie either. Hint: try googling each option + vodka.

CassieP79 Fri 13-Dec-13 00:20:50

I can't click on the Christmas Pages link for the hint...

Jinty64 Fri 13-Dec-13 10:25:24

Comps not working for me!

zipzap Fri 13-Dec-13 10:32:35

Is it just me - for today's facebook competition - is there no link to it?

There's the link from yesterday's competition but no link for today's competition as there has been for all the other competitions on your facebook page...

ISawNannyPlumKissingSantaClaus Fri 13-Dec-13 10:51:24

Comp for the car says its private sad

DecorKateTheXmasTreeMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 13-Dec-13 11:05:10

Morning everyone,

So, we got slightly over-enthusiastic about the number of cars we have to give away and there's in fact only one, not two. Anyone entering the Facebook competition to win the Ford Fiesta (there definitely IS a Ford Fiesta to be won, honest!) are entering the SAME competition that was on Mumsnet yesterday.

So there were two ways to enter: once through the entry form on Mumsnet (although that was only open for 24 hours and has now closed), and once through Facebook today (here: http://bit.ly/JbiLg5). Those who have already entered via Mumsnet are very welcome to enter a second time via Facebook today. But there's only one car to win, not two. We're very sorry about that. We've taken away everyone's gin flowers

ItsAWonderfulCervix Fri 13-Dec-13 17:46:06

The car one isn't working.

fsad

Ragwort Fri 13-Dec-13 17:56:01

I couldn't enter the car one either fsad - if we don't do FB how can we enter?

ZombieFromTheRealmOfGory Fri 13-Dec-13 19:55:23

The car competition here on the site was yesterday. It closed at 10:00am today as Rowan says in her last post.

Charcoalbriquettes Sun 15-Dec-13 22:44:06

Have the winners of these 12 days comps all been informed already?

OMGIwonacar Mon 16-Dec-13 21:36:26

Ive had an email- its me. And now the hunt for the driving licence starts so I can claim it!

Ive name changed but ive been here since 2007!

ZombieFromTheRealmOfGory Mon 16-Dec-13 23:04:04

Awww. Congratulations!! grin grin

DDF3 Tue 17-Dec-13 13:39:58

What brilliant prizes!

I do not want to win the chocolate hamper though (well I do!), I will eat it all!
