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.

I’ve been Instalucky!

Considering comping has been on the backburner these last few weeks due to visiting countless secondary schools with the son I’ve won a couple of great prizes and both from Instagram. A £50 bracelet and an abundance of Kingfisher beer plus a big hardback book on Bollywood. I find Instagram a quick and easy comping platform and because I use my phone to do it I’ve been squeezing a few in here and there and it has paid off. Don’t forget that we have recently started adding Instagram competitions to our social media updates on a Wednesday and Friday so give them a go! If you need any help or advice feel free to drop me a line via our Facebook page .


Now onto a selection of this week’s special awareness days; where you might find promoters running accompanying competitions – today is World Sight Day, 13th is World Egg Day, 14th is Family Learning Festival, 15th is Global Hand Washing Day and World Math’s Day, 16th is the start of My Family Week, National Baby Swimming Week, National Baking Week and also World Food Day. The best way to search for any comps is by using a hashtag before the named day across social media.


Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps. I’ll be around in the evening on the Facebook page if anyone fancies a comping chat! Good luck with the Freebie Friday comps.


Have a great weekend.
