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.

Charity Challenge!

 

The Mountain Warehouse Charity Challenge is back for its third year and you could be winning £10,000 for the charity of your choice! Now that is a good deed and a half!

 

Alongside that the winner will also get to embark on one of Beth Tweddle’s (Britain’s Greatest Ever Gymnast) bucket list activities with her. What an experience that would be.

 

To enter you need to be taking on an outdoor challenge for charity (and even if you’ve already completed the challenge – providing you have done so in 2015 – you can still take part) and you have until 5pm on 17th August to submit your details. The full terms and conditions can be found here.

 

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!
