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.

Selfie time!

 

If you’re visiting Ripley’s Believe It or Not London anytime soon then get ready to take a selfie. They are offering two free tickets to Ripley’s London and a Ripley’s goodie bag (containing a fun mix of Ripley’s stationary and some sweets) every Friday just for taking a selfie of your reaction to a Ripley’s exhibit or wacky fact.

 

Ensure you like the RipleysLondon Facebook page or follow them on Twitter @RipleysLondon and post your selfie on either their Facebook page or tweet your selfie with the hashtag #RipleysReaction.

 

A winner will be randomly chosen every Friday at 4pm and notified through social media and also announced on the Ripley’s London Facebook and Twitter page.

 

You can get more information and the full terms and conditions here, happy snapping!

 

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!
