#PointlessPropertyPurchase Competition: Win a £100 or £50 IKEA Gift Card


Move over summer, it’s Back to School time! Students will be flocking to the UK from all over the world, going on manic shopping sprees to find various items for their new digs; be it cutlery, crockery, bed linen or even a poster or two…

What we’d like to know is whether you’ve ever bought something for a new place with loads of ideas for what you’re going to do with it…

And then when you finally move in… NOTHING comes of it. It could be that smoothie maker  you dreamed of getting your 5-a-day with or that bedside cabinet you thought would really improve the feng shui. We like to call this a #PointlessPropertyPurchase.

We’re so intrigued by your Pointless Property Purchases, in fact, that we’re offering a prize for the best ones in a competition; we have a first prize of a £100 IKEA Gift Card up for grabs and a runner-up prize of a £50 IKEA Gift Card to make up for that pointless purchase of yours!

There are two ways to enter:


1. Follow us on Twitter (@placebuzz)
2. Tweet us your #PointlessPropertyPurchase, making sure you include the hashtag (and a photo if possible!)
