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.

Happy New Year to You All!

Well here we are in 2018 and I hope like me you are all ready and raring to tackle a brand-new comping year. In January I reflect back on what I won in the previous year and set about making myself a wish-list for the year ahead. My best win by a mile for 2017 was my holiday to Sri Lanka back in November, that one will be etched in my memory for a long time!

This year however as much as I would love to win another holiday I really need to concentrate on things for the home. One of my New Year’s resolution is to have a massive de-clutter, so out with the old and in with the new would be a lovely incentive for this. We also became the proud owners of a cute little Shih-Tzu pup named Bonnie, so pet comps will be featuring high on my agenda too.


Now seeing as I’ve shared my wish-list with you, I’d love to know what is on yours. You can get in touch and let me know via our Facebook page or by dropping me an email at info@oxonpress.co.uk. I find it a good way to encourage each other by sharing our dreams and it’s a great feeling when you can cross a line through something on your list.


And if you’d like to try your luck this year then make sure you head on over to Simply Prizes where you can take advantage of a free trial we offer to new members. The site lists 1300+ competitions every month and is updated three times a week. So, it’s a wonderful place to begin your comping hobby and start winning big.


Now talking of winning check out this wonderful competition I have found to share with you all; Lonely Planet is offering one lucky person the chance to win a holiday of a lifetime to Australia. It includes flights, accommodation and car hire plus more and all you have to do is enter your details here by 31st January to be in with a chance.

However, if you’re more of a winter break type of person how do you fancy a 48-hour winter escape to the beautiful island of Jersey including flights and hotel accommodation? Just simply pop your details here by 28th February to get your name in the draw.

And if something closer to home is more up your street then how about a 1-night stay at the gorgeous boutique Artist Residence Oxfordshire? Answer the following question here before 31st January; at which location is Artist Residence offering a night’s stay for two in this competition? Suggested answer is Oxford.

Make sure you pop on over to our Facebook page (link 1) too this week. I’m around most nights for a comping chat and you’ll also find a selection of competitions that we share daily on the page.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year. Here’s to a lucky 2018! Cheers!
