A Guide to Bauer Media Competitions

You may not have heard of Bauer Media themselves, but you will have heard of at least a handful of their brands. They have almost 90 tv stations, radio stations and magazines ranging from Absolute Radio to Zoo magazine. They also run some outstanding competitions, which I’m going to guide you through today.

So, what’s so good about their competitions? Well, firstly, they exist! Unlike some websites that have pages and pages of competitions but seem to never have any winners, these ones have genuine winners, and I’m speaking from experience!

Their prizes range from a £30/40 value movie promo pack to tech and trips away that are worth £600-£700. Good stuff. They also allow daily entries – the more you put in, the higher your chances of winning. They also run their comps over several websites, so you can also get multiple entries per day. If you’re organised enough with daily entry competitions, then this is for you.

The best starting place for Bauer Media competitions is their website, Win Something. At the time of writing, they have 23 pages of competitions with around 7 competitions per page.

Win Something


Hover over the competition you want to enter, and it’ll tell you the prize value and closing date. Click into the competition and you’ll get the entry page. Don’t enter just yet!

Win Something


Firstly, bookmark the page. Then, click on the Official Rules link (circled in red).


Within the rules page is a list of all other Bauer Media websites that are running that same competition. You’re allowed one entry per day on every website. At this point, open each of the links and bookmark them. A good way to manage all these bookmarks is to have a folder called ‘Daily’ and put them all in there. You may even wish to have a sub-folder in there called ‘Bauer’ and put them in there.

Most browsers allow you to sort bookmarks by alphabetical order. It keeps things tidy for OCD folk like me. Browser-wise, I prefer Firefox, simple because it allows you to open up bookmarks in a side-bar, which makes going through daily competitions MUCH easier.

Get your bookmarks organised, get your daily comping on and GOOD LUCK!

Edit – here’s a link to the Bauer Media sites I found, but I bet there’s more….

    They 50/50 fake. Yes, I personally win few times (some cheap things), but you can track some prizes after competition over – they never appear in winner’s list. This prizes just for entice people and showing tons of adverts.

    Gibson, over the last year or so I’ve won one of the £250 cheques that have been on offer, a £250 Leisure Voucher and a few smaller prizes, DVD’s and portable charger etc. So they do ‘pay out’ on the biggies too. I haven’t had the time to commit to doing them lately though, but will start again once the kids are back in school. The more cynical people there are out there, the better chance I have of winning again. That’s the way I look at it. I also expect to win. And I don’t enter for ‘cheap things’ unless I want to win them.

    I enter some of these, and have won a few cheaper things. didn’t know there was this many. Gonna start using as many as possible, but it takes time. Thank you for adding to my ever growing list think I have a few you don’t http://winit.livefortheoutdoors.com/ http://clickswin.eatinmagazine.co.uk/ http://winit.yours.co.uk/sweepstakes I do notice some people win very often, so they obviously enter lots. I aim to be one of these people 😀 haven’t won anything in a while. Last thing I won was a DVD. Also they only post the winners once people have replied so if people take time and they ahve to get in contact with other people then they will not show on winners circle for a while.

    Laura, after you enter a competition on a Bauer Media page you’ll see this text:

    Your entry has been captured and will be accepted in accordance with our terms and conditions
    Come back in 1 day to enter again!

    Click here to see which other sites you can enter this competition on to increase your chances of winning.
    Click that ‘here’ link in the second paragraph to see how many other pages are running the same comp for that specific prize.

    Not the specific list you were after, but it’s a start and I have noticed the lists are short for some non-cash prizes.

    Over the last few years I have won a blueray player with a boxed set of Blacklist, a brewery day where you help to make the beer for two people from the click to win. i entered win £1000 on absolute radio site and won this in November (if you win more than £500 on a Bauer site you and members of your household cant enter any other Bauer comps for 6 months).

    I used to find something I wanted, click to win it then there is a link at the top saying Congratulations you have entered I then click on the link (Other sites with this competition). This is a list of Bauer sites, I dont save them but leave them on the screen, I then press Ctrl and left mouse button over about 20 of them enter these and close them then enter another 20 and so on.

    Hi, iWon have now taken over running 10 of the Bauer sites along with their other sites. They have a 5* rating in TrustPilot. There are different prizes on the Bauer site – although some prizes may be the same they have different URLs if they are separate competitions.
