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.

Share your Park Plaza moments for a chance to win big!


If you’ve ever stayed in a Park Plaza resort or hotel then take a look at this competition. They are offering you the chance to win a six-night break in Croatia in return for you sharing your #ParkPlazaMoments!


So what do you have to do? Just share a favourite photograph from your Park Plaza stay via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ParkPlazaMoments. Or you can upload your photograph here. You have until 6pm on 1st September to enter so even if you haven’t been yet but are due to over the summer months then you’ve still got time to enter.


There are three prize tiers, all of which are chosen at random. First prize grabs that six-night Croatian stay, second prize gets to enjoy a two-night break and third is a £100 ParkPlaza gift card.


Good luck all! Don’t forget to pack me in your suitcase!

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!
