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.

It’s here!

I’m so excited! The advents are upon us!! I’ve had a bit of a break from comping over the last few days so I’m ready and raring to go – no doubt entering until the early hours and using up my matchsticks to keep my eyes open! I always start with such vigour but I know that come the middle of the month I’ll need to take a little break before starting again!


As most of you are now aware the Advent Competitions 2016 website is a free service we offer, and although I am around most evenings on our Facebook page there are certain things I can’t help with as I work remotely from home and don’t have access to customer accounts.


So, for any account queries you will need to contact customer services who are open Monday – Friday 9am-5pm. You are able to either email them at info@oxonpress.co.uk or call them on 01926 298986.


However, for advice and tips and anything else comping related then I can assist and I am more than happy to help out best I can! Don’t forget also that our Facebook page is a great comping community and there are always other compers available with their own advice and tips too!


I want to wish you the very best of luck with the advents; be sure to let me know how you’re getting on!

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.
