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.

Get whisked away to the Isles of Scilly with this week's SP Xtra

The end of each month always sees an increase in competitions as many promoters use the final day as their closing date. So, let’s all keep our fingers crossed for some winning notifications. I heard yesterday that I’d won a comp that closed on 31st December which seems ages ago. I find that where some promoters use marketing firms for their comps it can often be a good month or so before you hear anything at all.

Find out what your fellow compers have been winning

Now talking of winning I’d love to know a final round-up of your advent wins 2017; while they are still fresh in your mind. It will be a great way for us to let other compers know nearer Christmas this year how fun and fruitful the advent comps can be and also for the team who spent hours finding them all for us. Email me at info@oxonpress.co.uk or leave a comment on our Facebook post, where you can also have a nose at what others won too.

Win a trip to northern India

And if reading that post has got you into the mood for winning then check out these belters I have found for us all this week.

The Radio Times is giving away a trip worth £3000 to northern India. The lucky winner will receive two places on the Exodus Travels Highlight of northern India tour, including flights from a London airport, airport transfers, accommodation and a guide in India.
