I had heard a lot about this magazine and so wanted to try it for myself. I purchased a subscription through unique magazines and eventually after a 2 month wait I received a copy of simply prizes magazine. I was very disappointed as the issue they sent me (which I had paid for) arrived half way through the month so nearly all the competitions inside had ended.
That aside I do actually think the magazine is a waste of money anyway because although there are quite a few postal entry competitions all the other ones are easily found for free by going onto websites like theprizefinder.com . There is nothing "secret" or hard to find about the competitions listed in the magazine - they are all listed on free to use websites.
What I also found frustrating is that with the magazine came leaflets advertising other competition listing subscriptions. They claim to find all the best competitions that are not well advertised and that have short durations so you have a better chance of winning. This is obviously a service you pay for but erm.....isnt that what I just bought this magazine for????
I have had great success entering and winning competitions for free on competition websites like theprizefinder and regret wasting my money on this magazine. I would not recommend it as I could have found the same information inside it just as easily and for free elsewhere.
