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.

It’s here!

I’m so excited! The advents are upon us!! I’ve had a bit of a break from comping over the last few days so I’m ready and raring to go – no doubt entering until the early hours and using up my matchsticks to keep my eyes open! I always start with such vigour but I know that come the middle of the month I’ll need to take a little break before starting again!


As most of you are now aware the Advent Competitions 2016 website is a free service we offer, and although I am around most evenings on our Facebook page there are certain things I can’t help with as I work remotely from home and don’t have access to customer accounts.


So, for any account queries you will need to contact customer services who are open Monday – Friday 9am-5pm. You are able to either email them at info@oxonpress.co.uk or call them on 01926 298986.


However, for advice and tips and anything else comping related then I can assist and I am more than happy to help out best I can! Don’t forget also that our Facebook page is a great comping community and there are always other compers available with their own advice and tips too!


I want to wish you the very best of luck with the advents; be sure to let me know how you’re getting on!

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!
