If you’re a lucky winner, we’ll email to let you know. Our competition terms usually state that if a winner doesn’t respond within 14 days, we’ll pick a new one – so keep an eye on your inbox!

A list of winners for each competition is available upon request. Please contact us using our online form.

If the competition end date has passed by more than a week and you haven’t received an email from us, you’ve probably not been successful this time. The good news is we have new competitions all the time, so keep an eye out for news of our latest either by email or by checking our site.

If you've received an email from us to say you've won a competition, congratulations! You can either reply directly to that email (which will be from a address) or contact us using the below online form to send your details. We'll send your prize out as soon as possible.

Contact us

No, you can enter all of our competitions without opting in to our emails. This won't affect your chance of winning, or stop us contacting you if you do. 

However, if you want to be the first to hear about all our latest competitions, reading recommendations, quizzes and more, you may want to be on our mailing list! You can sign up easily online, or if you've already entered competitions on our site, create an account (go to 'Log in' and then 'Forgot / create password') to change your communication preferences.

If you're opted in to receive our emails, we'll enter you into a subscriber-only prize draw each month to win a £100/€120 National Book Token. Full details are in our terms and conditions.

No purchase is required to enter any of our competitions. You can view the terms and conditions for each competition before you enter.

All bookshop event and offer listings on our bookshop map are added by the individual bookshop and correct when added to the website. However, on occasion, events and offers can be amended or cancelled without notice.

If you have any queries about an event or offer, please contact the bookshop using the telephone number or other contact details listed on their bookshop profile.

When you search for your nearest bookshops, you'll also be able to view any events or offers they have coming up. To get the latest updates from local bookshops delivered straight to your inbox, just sign up for our emails (or, if you're already subscribed, use the links at the bottom of any of our emails to change your communication preferences).

If you create an online account, you'll also see the latest bookshop updates in your account. You can also edit or add your locations in your profile to make sure you're hearing from bookshops in your area.

Caboodle was run by team at National Book Tokens. To make our website easier to understand and navigate, all the book recommendations, competitions, quizzes, and features that you loved on Caboodle have now moved to this website – we’re just no longer using the ‘Caboodle’ name. You can find everything under ‘Win’ and ‘Discover’ on the website menu, or on the National Book Tokens Discover page.

If you received our Caboodle newsletters, you’ll automatically receive updates about new features and competitions to your inbox – you don’t need to do anything.

If you had an account with a password on Caboodle, you can log in to this website with the same details – there’s no need to create a new account.

We’d love to hear your comments and feedback about our website, emails, or anything else! Please send us a message using the form below. We can also add you to our focus group, if you’d like to take part in surveys and help us to make National Book Tokens Discover even better – just let us know!
