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.

A new month - a new start!



After a fairly good March, April didn’t really live up to much - I had only one win for the entire month. But what with one thing and another I didn’t enter that many competitions and so really only have myself to blame for the lack of prizes.


However, new month, new start and I am planning on keeping very busy throughout as my poor old hubby is away on business for the best part of May and I’ll be lost without him. So I have decided that there is only one thing for it this month – Sammy’s marathon compathon! I’d love for you guys to join in with me – I’ll be posting regular updates on our Facebook page with how many comps I’ve managed to enter and whether there have been any new winning emails! I’m hoping that maybe we can all spur each other along for a winning month of May.



Top of my wish-list for this month is family tickets to attractions nearby. I’ll be keeping my eye out for local comps but I’d love to win Merlin passes. Living where I do in the South East I’m pretty close to major theme parks so a win of this kind would be fantastic.


Do get in touch and let me know what’s on your wish-list for this month and of any new wins of course - email me at info@oxonpress.co.uk or via our Facebook page.


Good luck!

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.
