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.

Meet Eloise!



JoJo Maman Bebe loves its teams to get involved with local charities. This season they are looking at going one step further by helping out at nursery or playgroup summer events by bringing Eloise!


Eloise is their fabulous vintage Citroën HY JoJo camper van which is perfect for little ones to explore. They’ll provide helium balloons and freebies and not only that, but they will bring collection tins where every penny raised will be donated to your charity or fundraiser.


You will need to submit details of your event here with your details alongside your playgroup/nursery info too. Entries must be received by 30th April and 3 winners will be chosen.


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!
