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.

Holidays are coming!

With Halloween well and truly out of the way we are now on countdown to that magical month of December! And Coca Cola would like to make that even more special for you. This Christmas they are offering you the chance to win a visit from the Coca Cola Christmas truck along with a special delivery of Christmas goodies (valued at £5,000)!

 So to enter simply grab yourself a promotional bottle of the fizzy stuff and then enter the promotional code and that’s it – you’re in the draw.


Now for the boring stuff – you can enter up to 20 times per day per person with entries closing at 23.59 on 4th December; however only one prize per household can be won. And if you happen to miss the closing date and still have promotional bottles hanging around you can enter yourself into the bonus draw from 5th December until 23.59 on 12th February 2017 for the chance to win another £5,000 worth of goodies.


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!
