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.

Blog giveaways – what are your views?

I won a really cute little edie & rona set last week from a blog giveaway. I don’t normally win from those, and in all honesty often avoid them because there can be so many entry methods, that it puts me off! You know what I mean….1 entry via Facebook, 1 via Twitter, retweet daily, leave a blog comment etc etc. And sometimes I’ve seen ones where you can earn up to 50 entries! So I tend to only enter for stuff I really want on the blog comps. How about you guys? I’d be interested to know whether you get put off by the amount of entries that some blog giveaways require. You can let me know on our Facebook post here .

So this week’s awareness days where you might find promoters running accompanying comps are; 18th May – International Museum Day, 19th May – Great British Fish and Chip Supper, 22nd May – World Goth Day, 23rd May – World Turtle Day and then from 23rd-27th of this month is the Chelsea Flower show (there are always plenty of comps alongside this, and there are still ones out there to win tickets too!). As always the best way to search for any comps is to use hashtags in the search bar of the social media account you are using.


Keep an eye out tomorrow on here for the new update of Freebie Friday comps; good luck if you’re planning on entering any. Keep an eye on the closing time of these as although they are predominately daily comps I’ve noticed lately that quite a few run into the weekend now. So if you’re at work in the day and don’t get time there will still be plenty that you can enter once you’re home for the evening.


As always I’m around in the evenings via our Facebook page if you fancy joining me for a comping chat.


Have a great weekend and good luck with the comps.
