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.

One Word…

Is all it could take to win a 5 star holiday to Rhodes!

Love Holidays are running a competition across social media (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) where entering one word in between love ___ holidays might bag you an all-inclusive trip to the Greek isle!

 

Their requirements? Smart, funny and creative. And the three best entries will grab prizes. First prize is that holiday, second bags a £100 voucher and third will be walking away in a pair of colourful Havaianas.

 

Everyone loves holidays but what is that one unique thing for you? Enter before midnight on 22nd August to be in with a chance!

 

Full details can be found on Love Holidays blog here where you can also find the terms and conditions too.

 

Good luck!

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!
