Can't enter any of the competitions as you now need a UK post code! Still I never won anything when I could enter.

Hi Sapins There are two types of competitions we run on PC Advisor, those we conceive and host ourselves, and those for which we partner with MyOffers. Why do we do this? Simply, because with a specialist competitions company such as MyOffers we can offer substantially better prizes, but we don't want to lost the ability to run our own. At this moment in time we are - admittedly - running a little low on PCA competitions, but we're about to launch a new photo competition, and have a few others in the pipeline. For these we don't require a postcode of any kind. But for all sorts of legal reasons the competitions run in conjunction with MyOffers do, and if you live outside the UK (and can't use another postal address), I'm afraid you can't enter. Sorry about that, and I hope this clears up your query.

Oh, and if you're having trouble entering the MyOffers ones, drop me a line and I'll get someone to look into it.

When applying for My Offers competitions be aware of the barrage of e-mails you will receive,one of the pitfalls.I eventually unsubscribed. Nothing against PCA,it is just how media enterprise works.

daz60 - I agree entirely. I made the mistake some time ago of signing up with My Offers and the e-mails became a spam deluge.

I won a doll about 15 years ago. It still sits on my bed pillow just to remind me that it is possible to win things. Not bad in 65 years, a doll!!!

Thanks for the explanation Matt, I look forward to the PCA competitions. When you say "can't use a another postal address", can I use my brother-in-laws?
