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.

Postal comps - your views wanted!

I’m in the process of contacting Royal Mail to ask their advice about the return of our ‘postcard’ comps. I’ve heard from lots of you via our Facebook page and if there are any questions you’d like me to ask on your behalf or advice you would like to leave for other compers you can leave a comment on the ‘postcard’ post here . I think it would be good to have some solid advice from the company that delivers our mail as to whether there are things we can do to prevent this happening; especially as it seems to be a regular occurrence for some of us! So, watch this space SP’ers.


Now onto a selection of this week’s special awareness days; where you might find promoters running accompanying competitions – today is World Values Day, 20th is Wear It Pink 2017, 21st is Apple Day, 22nd is Nut Day, 24th is United Nations Day and 25th is International Artists Day and World Pasta 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 (link 1) if anyone fancies a comping chat! Good luck with the Freebie Friday comps.


Have a great weekend.
