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.

Win £500!


Cash wins are always rather attractive to everyone and unless you get yourself on a game-show or win on the lottery, the types of legit cash competitions can often be few and far between.


But head on over to Twitter and follow @VisaGoldenSpace and you could be in with a chance of grabbing yourself a cash prize.


They are looking for your pictures of something new you tried on holiday abroad, accompanied by the hashtag #MyHolidayism. And because it’s got a hashtag linked to it you can be nosey and check out the competition too!


You have until 23.59 on Sunday 19th July to get your entry into this week’s draw and make sure you keep an eye on their Twitter feed as this will be an ongoing promotion until 16th August with a different theme each week. You can enter more than once but can only win once through the whole competition. The full terms and conditions can be found here.


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!
