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.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from the Simply Prizes team!

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from myself and the rest of the Simply Prizes team.


Although I will be around over the festive period and contactable via our Facebook page the offices will be shut from 24th December through to 2nd January. There will be some checking of emails on 28th and 30th from the team but if you do happen to email in for any reason please don’t expect a response before 3rd January.


Also because I work remotely from home I don’t have any access to customer accounts so will not be able to help with any subscription queries over the Christmas break but am always around for comping advice!


Once again Merry Christmas and a big thank you to our subscribers for your continued support over the last year!

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!
