This is the want review – Designer handbag competitions

This is the Want review

This is the want derives it’s name from offering luxury fashion raffles with the opportunity to win some of the most desirable brand name handbags such as Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Dior. These stunning collection of prizes make it very appealing and it’s easy to see why they are a very popular site.

Is This is the want the best handbag raffle site

Given that we specialise in providing independent reviews of lotteries, competitions and raffles, we would have to say there are better alternatives to This is the Want. In our opinion, the better option is Odurn, who offer a better choice of designer handbags (over 100 to choose from), as well as cheaper pricing, and a lower number of maximum entrants meaning that you have better odds of winning.

Why don’t ThisistheWant let you choose your own bags? This is a good question! They prefer to package them up in a bundle, and whilst these are pretty special bundles (previous items have featured the latest designer bags from Chanel, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Prada to name just a few), it does remove the option of personal taste and preference. Hopefully this is something the guys at ThisistheWant can address in the future.

Both Odurn and This is the Want are incredibly trustworthy, investing in independent adjudication of their draws to ensure they are fair. In this game trust and reputation are everything, and both brands do a good job. However, we would say the live Facebook show Odurn run to announce their winner, using professional presenters who also hand deliver the prizes to winners, edges it over This is the Want who use a pre-recorded show.

When it comes to website design, usability and experience, again we feel Odurn just edges it. The overall branding is a bit slicker, and their range of payment options and quick checkout process is a little more professional than that of This is the Want, although there isn’t much in it.

The final area where our review of This is the Want identifies a weakness compared to Odurn is the choice of raffles. Whilst This is the Want only runs a single raffle at a time, Odurn add new competitions on an almost daily basis, many with fixed number of entries offering great odds. These prizes range from small prizes such as £300 to spend on designer trainers, right up to £10,000 to spend on anything you want in Chanel. We hope this is a feature that the guys at This is the Want can introduce soon, as it makes for a much more compelling proposition, and offers customers many more chances to win – which is what it’s all about!
