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.

Instant wins!



Have any of you attempted the new instant win with Walkers Crisps yet? I’ve seen quite a few of my comping friends on Facebook saying that they’ve won. I’ve entered three codes but am yet to be lucky.


This is a 24-hour instant win promotion – which means you can be savvy and try and enter at less popular times like early in the morning and late at night. And with over 40,000 prizes to be won it’s worth chancing your luck.


I bought two multi-packs of six this week (as they were on offer in my local supermarket) and each bag has an individual code rather than just the one on the outer packaging so that’s good news!


All entries will be put into a main prize draw to win the top prize of a VIP trip to the Champions League Final in Milan (including travel and accommodation) regardless of whether you won an instant win.


With each code you enter (and you can enter more than once per hour up to a maximum of 24 codes in 24 hours) you’ll find out instantly if you are a winner. And included in the prizes are Final tickets, sharing bowls, t-shirts and footballs.


To enter you’ll need to buy a promotional pack of Walkers crisps or Doritos and register to play at www.game-ready.com. The competition is ongoing until 25th April 2016 and from 26th April – 29th June 2016 there is a wrap up draw where each eligible entry will be put into a pot to win £500.


Don’t forget to let me know if you win (remember my tips on timings) via info@oxonpress.co.uk or on our Facebook page. Happy munching!

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.
