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.

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.
