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.

Final call for our Comper of the Year competitions!

 

I hope everyone’s January is getting off to a winning start – I’ve only managed one win so far but I’m blaming the hubby for that after sharing his man flu with me; which has meant entering comps has taken a bit of a back seat! However, I’m starting to feel better and hopefully by the end of this week I’ll be back into the swing of things. I’m hoping to notch up a few more wins for the start of 2016 so I need to up my game.

 

Talking of winning you haven’t got much longer to get your entries in for our Comper of the Year. You can find the full details here and you have until 31st January 2016 to submit them. The closing date was initially the 10th January 2016 to tie in with our print deadline but as we are now completely online we have been able to extend this all for you to give you that little bit of extra time to get your entries completely finalised.

 

Any last minute queries can be answered by our customer service team via email on info@oxonpress.co.uk or alternatively they are available by telephone on 01926 298986 Mon-Fri 9-5.

 

Good luck 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.
