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.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year from us all at SP Xtra...

Wow, happy new year! I cannot believe how quickly 2018 flew past. And now we’re into 2019 and I have some very happy news to share with you all – I’m going to be a Nanna! My daughter and her boyfriend surprised us with the news on Christmas Day. So top of my wish-list for prizes this year is anything baby related!

Wish-list of wins...

I always make a wish-list at the start of each new year as there is nothing more satisfying than putting a line through things you win. Alongside baby related prizes I am hoping to win some things for the house. Me and the hubby have a new year’s resolution of de-cluttering and that includes some major DIY work in our lounge/dining room. So, to win things that would help with that would be gratefully received. If you have a wish-list and would like to share it with me feel free to drop me a line at: info@oxonpress.co.uk or post on the Simply Prizes Facebook page. It’s lovely to share our dreams and even lovelier to be able to say we’ve won!

This week’s competitions...

And now onto our first batch of comps for 2019; fingers crossed compers!
