I buy them every week and send them in (Take 5 too). I've won a few prizes. I find I get really angry with That's Life because I really hate the way they make up words or use them improperly. It really bugs me. I refuse to read our local paper for the same reason - especially since I went to school with their 'star' reporter and if I can spell and write properly, why can't she? She supposedly has a journalism degree too! Amazing what rich parents can buy you.

I used to do the competitions in That's Life magazine until I realized that our state is too far away. By the time we've got the magazine delivered to our newsagencies, they've already picked their winners. Most of the winners are from Qld or NSW, hardly anyone from WA. No wonder they predate the magazines so far ahead. I just wish they'd pick equal numbers from each state as their winners.

Their prizes aren't worth winning most of the time. I'm not entirely convinced that real people actually win the cool prizes like the car or the video camera or even the treadmill (that'd be good wouldn't it?). I've won a really really ugly purse, an equally ugly teddy bear wearing a That's Life t-shirt and a puzzle book. If I added up the cost of stamps and envelopes and the magazines I could probably nearly afford that treadmill on my own!

I know what you mean Serena, My sister-in-law had been sending in crosswords for ages (not sure which magazine it was) and eventually they told her she'd won a tea-set worth $200.
She was so excited until the 4 cups and small teapot arrived (the pot full of liquid wasn't big enough to make tea for the 4 cups. They were badly painted green, yellow, blue and purple blobs and smears over a white background.
She asked my daughter if she wanted it as all of her children and friends didn't, my daughter took it but said she was just being polight and didn't want it either. It's like they have a room of donated reject stuff that stores can't sell or something.
