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.

My February update!



February really didn’t come up to much for me! I won a total of three prizes and all of those were from the Walkers Shop to Win comp consisting of two footballs and a sharing bowl! However; I did manage to get a Cadbury’s Easter Egg and a weekend box to try out for free from a couple of review panels I’m on, so although they aren’t really wins I’m still counting them in my round-up for the month.


Considering top of my wish-list for February was a short hotel break I didn’t even come anywhere close with my football themed wins! So onto March, fresh month, fresh start! And this month sees me celebrating not only Mother’s Day but also my special birthday….40!! Eeek!! And I’m hoping that I’ll be able to have a lot more comping time too; last month didn’t quite pan out as I had hoped. There was February half term, my Mum was in hospital and my hot water tank flooded my kitchen so comping was way down on my list of priorities! But March is going to be a good one – I’m keeping positive and hoping to win a short hotel break this month instead so that goes straight to the top of my wish-list.


Now as we head into the new month don’t forget to get in touch with us and let us know about your February wins. You can use the contact us page  here, use our Facebook page or drop us an email at info@oxenpress.co.uk. Any we feature on our letter’s page will bag a tenner.

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.
