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.

Christmas comping box!

We got back from our summer hols on Saturday after a lovely week away in Suffolk. It was actually really nice to have a total break from the comping and emails, but now that I’m back I feel refreshed and ready to go again! September always feels like a bit of a new start for me as I don’t ever get that many comps done through the summer hols. With the kids back to school I’m finally back into my routine.


With the start of a new month I always like to compile a wish-list of things I’d like to win, and autumn is the start of the Christmas countdown for me! I can hear most of you shouting at me for even mentioning that word when the sun is still bright in the sky, but I really like to start concentrating on my Christmas comping box from September. So as of now on I start to enter comps for presents that I want to gift to friends and family. It’s a really fulfilling feeling to win something that I know someone else will love!


Make sure to head on over to our Simply Prizes Facebook page and share your Christmas wish-list with me! I’d love to know what you will all be trying to win for your friends and family. Also don’t forget to let me know how you did in August. Any winning comments and photos that we share via our website will bag themselves a tenner! You can also email me at info@oxonpress.co.uk with August wins in the subject line too.


Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps. I’ll be around in the evening on the Facebook page if anyone fancies a comping chat! Good luck with the Freebie Friday comps.


Have a great weekend.

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.
