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.

Mother’s Day comps!


*updated 3rd March

It seems like we’ve only just got over Christmas, New Year and Valentine’s Day and we’re already rushing straight into Mother’s Day! But I love this time of the year for comping; there are always lots of promotions around these events and generally they are fairly short-lived, where a general prize draw might run for a few months, so you can find out if you’re a winner a lot sooner. I’ve selected a batch of Mother’s Day competitions for you all to get your teeth into. Keep an eye on this blog as I will update it with more as I find them.



I can’t see a closing date for the following comps so I would recommend entering these as soon as you can:



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.
