I have subscribed but my magazine hasn't arrived. How can i find out when it will arrive?

If you contact our Subscription Office on 1300 668 118 they can check the status of your magazine order. We would hate for you to miss out on our latest issue!

Yes, we do! Visit Subscribe Today for rates and info.

COMPETITIONS.

 

How do i find out if I won a competition?

We contact competition winners directly, then publish winner's details on the Girlfriend website, HERE.

 

I won a prize but it hasn't arrived yet?

Please allow up to 8 weeks for prizes to arrive - we have to wait to receive them from our suppliers before we can post them out to winners, so it can take a bit of time to work through the system.

 

How many times can you enter a competition on the Girlfriend website?

As many times as you like - unless otherwise stated.

 

I'm trying to enter a competition and keep getting an error message when i enter my birthday, what's wrong?

You only need to enter the YEAR of your birth, not your full birthday. So for example, DO enter: 1997, DON'T enter: 03.05.97

 

When does a competition I’ve entered close?

All dates and info about competitions are listed in the Terms and Conditions on the bottom of the page for that competition.
