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.

May the Fourth be with you!

May already; wow! This year is just whizzing by. However, the start of a new comping month means a new wish-list and totting up our wins from April. Make sure to let us know how you did by sending us an email (info@oxonpress.co.uk) or posting on our Facebook page , because any winning letters that we publish on our website will bag themselves a tenner.


Now today is Star Wars day, May the Fourth be with you! And you will probably find plenty of accompanying comps doing the rounds across social media. Using hashtags are the best way of sourcing any. You’ll also come across National Doughnut week starting on Sunday, Sun Awareness week starting Monday, Europe Day on Tuesday alongside National Lost Sock Day and Bike to School Day on Wednesday. All of these awareness days may encourage promoters to run competitions alongside them so keep your eyes peeled across the web.


And you’ll find a nice new batch of comps from us tomorrow too for Freebie Friday; I’m hoping to get stuck into some myself! I’m also on the lookout for any local comps in Yorkshire too as we are off there in May half term on a holiday I won last year.


Finally a big congrats to Mel Brolly; our Facebook winner for the £20 John Lewis/Waitrose voucher. Make sure to keep a check on our Facebook page for more in-house comps soon.


Have a great weekend and good luck with the comps.
