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.

Starting that Christmas box!

It’s been a busy week in the Fairman house and I’ve not had overly much time for comping; squeezing it in here and there where I can. But as the kids are nearing the end of term, school becomes extremely busy with things like sports day and meeting new teachers. I did however have some lovely prizes arrive; a gorgeous lace dress with a hefty price tag of £150 (which I knew about) and some very girly crafting bits (that I didn’t know about) which I am putting by in my Christmas box for Abigail. I always like to start my Christmas box around this time of the year, so things I win that are suitable for friends and family go in there for pressies! It saves money and I love having a sort through at the start of December deciding who gets what.


Now, onto this week’s variety of awareness days, where you might find promoters running accompanying comps; today is Embrace Your Geekness Day, 14th July needs you to don your beret as it is Bastille Day, 16th July is The British Grand Prix, 17th is World Emoji Day and the 19th is Ice Cream Day. As always the best way to search for any comps is using hashtags in the search bar of the social media account you are using.


I’m off to London on Saturday for a sneaky hotel stay and a visit to The Shard where I will be partaking in a glass of champers. Look out for some pics on the Simply Prizes Facebook page . I’ll be back Sunday to catch up on my comping and emails. Have a good one and enjoy the brand new comp update tomorrow.


Have a great weekend.
