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.

Keep an eye on your emails!


It’s been a long old week here in the Fairman household but its Friday and actually this month is shaping up to be a pretty good one! The wins are rolling in so far (I reckon it’s because it’s my birthday soon so luck is on my side!) and we have a case of wine, a £15 River Island voucher, a gorgeous lace tablecloth and a necklace and Marc Jacobs perfume set to report so far! All in all a rather smashing start to March. Just need my numbers to come up on the Euro tonight and I’ll be sorted!


Now for all you SP’ers out there we have something rather exciting up our sleeves at Simply Prizes HQ! So keep an eye on your inboxes and you may just find a nice little surprise there!


Have a great weekend!

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!
