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.

Fancy a million Euros?


If you’re yet to go through all of the new updated comps on here then make sure you check this one out pretty soon! Papa Johns are offering a million fans for a million Euros! Now there is a slight catch and that is a million fans must sign up before they dish out the dosh and it is only on until 10th July. However if they don’t reach that number, five lucky people will still bag themselves a 42” HD TV.


So what do you have to do? Well, it’s simple, sign up here either by email or Facebook by the closing date with your name and email address and basically keep your fingers crossed!


If they do reach that lucky million then one person will be chosen randomly on 13th August and the winner will be invited to a central London location to take part in a game (up to £500 of travel and other expenses will be paid too). The game will involve the lucky participant choosing a series of prize boxes that each contain a cash amount of between €10,000 and €1,000,000 with the minimum guaranteed prize a tasty €10,000. The full terms and conditions can be found here.


So what are you waiting for? A simple registration could see you playing in possibly the biggest game of the year!


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!
