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.

Brag about your wins and bag yourself a tenner!

 

June proved to be a pretty lucrative month for me in terms of wins. I managed to bag some great prizes and after a rubbish May it just goes to show that you should never give up! My June brags are; a book, some granola, a Virgin Experience Paintballing day for four, a bottle of Mon Paris YSL perfume, £200 worth of Primark vouchers, £5 Love2Shop voucher, 2 tickets for a preview screening of the new Ab Fab film, some sandals of my choice, a top from Select Fashion, a DVD for the kids, a DKNY beach towel and some Givenchy aftershave for the hubby! And needless to say I am extremely chuffed with all of those.

 

June is by far my best month for 2016 and it has given me real motivation to carry on comping my heart out for July. As the summer hols will soon be upon us I only have a few more weeks to get as many entries in as possible before the competitions take a back seat. I’m hoping to nab some tickets for days out or toys for the kids that will help me through the long six weeks!

 

So, I’d love for you to get in touch and brag about your June wins; no matter how big or small we love to hear from our readers about what they’ve been winning. And don’t forget for any that we feature on our website you will bag yourself a tenner. You can email me at info@oxonpress.co.uk with June wins in the subject header or let me know via our Facebook page.

 

I look forward to hearing from you and I’m sending you all lots of luck for July! Happy comping all.

Ho Ho Ho! Grab yourself a festive spa break with SP Xtra!
With the kids now back to school I'm on a countdown to my winning holiday in Sri Lanka. My tickets arrived at the weekend, so it all feels real now! I've got so much to organise as not only do I need to make sure the hubby and I are sorted, but I need to make lists for the babysitters and jot down the kid's schedules (as they have far busier socials lives than us!). I think by the time I arrive at the resort I'll be ready to chill for the whole week!
 
Now talking of chilling, I think you should head on over to Simply Prizes where you will find some lovely competitions; settle yourself down with a cuppa and get comping. Most take a few seconds to enter and there are hundreds of competitions currently listed featuring tickets for days out, short breaks, holidays, toys, things for the home and garden plus lots more!
 
And I've also found a corker of a comp for you too; how do you fancy a Christmas spa break to Bath? It includes a stay at The Queensberry boutique hotel in a deluxe room, including breakfast, tickets to the real outdoor ice rink Bath on Ice, two Twilight Spa Packages at Thermae Bath Spa, Britain's only natural thermal day spa, a hamper of Bath Christmas Market goodies and to top it off a free pass to many of Bath's top attractions and museums. A nice chance to relax before the onset of the festive madness. Simply enter your details here before 17th November to get your name in the draw.
 
I was hoping to be a bit more organised for Christmas before I jetted off to the sun but then I realised that Black Friday was going to fall while I was away - so I plan on shopping via Wi-Fi with a cocktail in one hand and my iPad in the other! However, I do realise that sometimes the deals can be hyped up so it's best to compare price, especially as a lot of promoters will release their deals before the day itself. But for your reference this year Black Friday is 24th November and Cyber Monday is 27th November. Last year a lot of retailers ran their deals for the entire weekend so if there is a shop or item you're hoping to get discounts in/on then just keep an eye on their website for sale news soon!
 
Also, pop on over to our Facebook page where you will find a selection of competitions; it's also a wonderful comping community where you can chat to other compers and share your own comping news and advice.
 
Plus don't forget that tomorrow The Postcard Store are putting their prices up, so if you want to grab a pack of your favourites and beat the price increase, click here to visit their online shop now. 

 

Good luck and happy comping!
