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.

Forget the General Election - Advent fever has taken grip!

I don’t know about you guys but the advent fever has hit! I’m getting up early, staying up late and entering as many as I can. And oh my goodness, tomorrow another 12 days of comps hit us. More promoters will be starting their 12 days of Christmas Advents. So, be sure to keep an eye on the listings as the team will be updating it throughout the day.

Are you struggling?

But in all the madness don’t forget you can take a break; missing out on a few days here and there is no big deal and in fact I had a blow at the weekend and forgot about the Advents and entered a few ‘normal’ comps. However, one thing to remember is that a lot of people will be feeling overwhelmed, or will need to take some time out for Christmas stuff, so entries generally do start to tail off a bit around this time... just saying!!

This week’s competitions...

Gransnet is offering you the chance to win a bundle of Christmas toys worth over £180. Log in/register here and submit the suggested answer of ‘Spike’ by 11am on 16th December.

Argos has a trip to NYC with Disney's Frozen 2 up for grabs. Enter your details here before 16th December.

Sophie Allport is giving away £600 worth of Christmas table goodies. Pop your details here along with the suggested answer ‘Home for Christmas’ before 12pm on 13th December.

That’s it for this Thursday, I’ll be back next week with some more comps. Stay lucky!
