SP Xtra: Editor's Blog

Hi, my name's Sammy and I'm the Editor of Simply Prizes magazine. Every week I'll be bringing you an update or two about any interesting competitions I find or any comping news. Plus I'll bring you any competitions or offers I find.

A quick bonjour...

 

The family and I are currently being entertained by the main man, Mr Mickey Mouse! We’re in Disneyland Paris and the kids are having an absolute whale of a time (as are the adults!). Although it is rather tiring (albeit it lots and lots of fun) and I can’t wait to hear how you are all doing with the advent competitions!

Make sure you send in details of any wins you are having either via Facebook (private message or just pop it on our wall) or by email to info@oxonpress.co.uk. And remember any that we feature on our letters page will receive a £10 cheque.

 

I’m back on Wednesday evening and will try and catch up with you all then. In the meantime good luck with those comps; stay lucky!

Tuesday Talk! (And a little prize draw!)

 

There are always hundreds of EOM (end of month) comps doing the rounds and I just wondered how many of you managed to be organised enough to do them? Every month I tell myself to start entering them in the middle of the month by doing a few each day so I’m not so inundated on the last day, but I never do! So tonight I’ll be settling down as early as I can and ploughing my way through as many as I can. (Vowing to myself that things will be different next month, ha ha!)

 

I tend to be quite organised with my comping routine but the EOM stuff just beats me every time. My main comping time is in the evenings but I do try and sneak some dailies in through the day if I can. I concentrate on staying a few days ahead of the closing dates so I can have an evening off every weekend and I keep a spreadsheet of wins to track prizes.

 

So, how do you organise your comping? I’d love to hear from you and I’d like to post the best tips on our Facebook page to help other compers get their game into gear! So you can either post on our wall  or email me at: info@oxonpress.co.uk. And at the end of the month I’ll choose my favourite to win a little something.

 

Chat soon!
