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.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

 

You’re all in for a treat this week; on Christmas Eve you will find a bumper update of comps for you all to plough through over the festive period. As our next update won’t be until the New Year (January 8th) we’ve amped up the fun to make sure you don’t miss out.

 

As we head into the New Year don’t forget to get your entries in for our Comper of the Year 2015. You can find the full details here and you have until 31st January 2016 to submit them. The closing date was initially the 10th January 2016 to tie in with our print deadline but as we are now completely online we have been able to extend this all for you to give you that little bit of extra time to get your entries completely finalised.

 

Now all that is left for me to do is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from myself and the rest of the team at Simply Prizes. Here’s to a winning 2016!

P.S Although the office will be shut over the festive period you will still be able to contact me via our Facebook page – as you know us compers never rest!

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!
