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.

Coming soon to a TV screen near you!



Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway is coming back and NEEDS you! They are looking for people to nominate a friend, family member, or colleague for an amazing surprise.


As you know they surprise people anywhere, anytime, therefore whatever you have in mind please don’t be shy in suggesting it. They need as much information as possible and so ask for anything that will help your application such as photos and videos etc.


As you can imagine they receive thousands so try and make yours stand out!


The one thing they do say is to keep this a complete secret as a surprise only works out if it is a complete surprise!


Log in/register here to get started on giving someone you know the absolute shock (in a very nice way of course!) of their life!


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!
