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.

A new chapter for Simply Prizes!


Your October update of competitions has just been uploaded to the Simply Prizes website! You can get started on your entries right now, and this month we've got 425 brand new comps for you, including your chance to win £20,000 cash, the chance to switch on the Blackpool Illuminations, a tour of Vietnam and Cambodia, a Fiat 500 and much, much more. So what are you waiting for!

Your magazine will be with you on Saturday, and with that I have some rather exciting Simply Prizes news. From November we are going completely online, which means this will be your last paper issue of the magazine! With the world of comping moving almost entirely online, by introducing a new weekly service instead of a printed magazine, we'll be able to deliver an even better comping experience for you. And although we will miss bringing you a monthly paper issue, this new format will not only give you lots more competitions, but it'll also make entering them easier and spread the fun of your hobby out over the month.

The new weekly format isn't the only thing we have up our sleeves; we'll be bringing you a weekly exclusive subscriber-only in-house competition, alongside lots of regular blog and video updates from me. As the service develops there will be lots more exciting benefits for all of our customers too. When your magazine arrives, head on over to page 34 where you can read more about this change straight from our publisher, Dave Gibson.

I hope you enjoy this new format; it'll mean extra competitions, and extra content for you, as well as helping to make Simply Prizes the best comping community on the web.

If you need any help logging in to the Simply Prizes website then please contact our friendly customer service team at: info@oxonpress.co.uk or on 01926 298986 and they will be more than happy to help you.

As a quick reminder, if you've not logged in before, your username will be your email address and your password should be your customer number.


Best Wishes

Week six – summer holiday kid’s comps! The end!

That’s it; the end is in sight - the kids are back to school next week! I actually can’t believe how quickly it has gone and it seems odd as we are still on our summer holiday. Back home Saturday though to a mountain of washing and getting the kids prepped for school. Although I was ultra-organised this year and all school uniform was bought, washed and ironed in the first week of the holidays; which is a nice feeling knowing it’s already done!


And to keep them occupied for the last few days, here are a couple more comps for the kids to get stuck into.


Win some Emoji merchandise by helping the kids to upload a fun selfie. Under 16’s must be entered by a parent. You can enter up to three times every day until 30th November although a maximum of one prize per week can be won by one person. More details and info on how to enter can be found here .


Draw your dream dinosaur and have the chance to get it printed on a giant bean bag and a family ticket to the Dinosaurs of China exhibition. Open to entrants aged 11 and under you have until midnight on 30th September to enter. Full details and entry info can be found here .


Have fun with these ones and remember normality is nearly here! Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps too. I may not be around tomorrow evening as will be getting ready to leave the lodge early Saturday morning but I’ll catch up with you all via our Facebook page when I’m back.


Have a great weekend.
