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.

Countdown to ‘Madvents’!

I won a £50 children’s shoe voucher this week which I’m pretty chuffed with as I’ve been a bit slow off the mark this month; but I do really need to get myself organised before December hits! Then it will be ‘Madvent’! Yup, advent competitions will soon be with us. So, November for me is all about making sure I am ready for the festive month. Be sure to keep an eye out too SP’ers as we have something up our sleeves for the advent comps; so watch this space!


Now onto a selection of this week’s special awareness days where you might find promoters running accompanying competitions. Today is World Freedom Day, 13th November is the start of National School Meals Week, World Nursery Rhyme Week, Anti Bullying Week and World Kindness Day and 15th November is Blue Wednesday. The best way to search for any comps is by using a hashtag before the named day across social media.


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.
