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.

My mojo has returned!



My comping mojo has returned- phew! Just in time for the advents too! Two winning emails of a Frozen mural for the youngest daughter and a pair of Italian leather baby shoes for my nephew have seen me get my head back in the game.


I’m pretty chuffed with those in all honesty as the amount of competitions I was entering was down massively on my normal quota. So I’m now remaining positive and getting rather excited about the impending Advent comps!


As subscribers to Simply Prizes you will all have access to our Advent competition site from the 1st December using your usual username and password. And as an added extra this year everyone who ‘tells a friend’ will go into a draw to win a £25 Love2Shop voucher! Also as a thank you to new registrations those compers will go into another draw for a £25 Love2Shop voucher too; so it’s worth telling as many friends as you can!


Any questions about the advents and what to expect feel free to send me an email – info@oxonpress.co.uk or get in touch via our Facebook page.


Happy adventing!

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!
