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.

Are you enjoying the new and improved Simply Prizes?


So by now I’m sure most of you have got to grips with your new and improved Simply Prizes. I’ve been getting lots of lovely feedback via our Facebook page and it’s great to hear that all my SP’ers are enjoying the service! If there are any issues you are experiencing at all or have noticed any glitches with the website please let our customer service department know via info@oxonpress.co.uk and they will be more than happy to assist with the problem.


I’ve had a pretty good March so far with competition wins – these goodies arrived yesterday just in time for my special day!

Sammy's perfume win

And then this week I topped it up with some tickets to a local show in the Easter hols! Which is one day out planned and best of all it isn’t going to cost me a thing! So I’m now on the look-out for more free ways to amuse the kiddies! And I will be keeping an eye on my local paper and social media feeds of local companies to see if they are running any Easter themed comps. Local comps are a good source of low entry promotions as most are restricted to ‘your’ area so can be a great way of bagging a win!


Now I’m treating myself to a day off of comping tomorrow as it’s my birthday! So I’m off to the big smoke to meet the hubby and have a wander round Borough Market, one of my favourite haunts! I do however plan on snapping away as I find decent photos are a great thing to keep for when an appropriate photo comp comes up! I’ll be back in the evening though ready to chat via our Facebook page if anyone is around and ready to join me with a glass of red!


I hope all you SP’ers have a great Freebie Friday tomorrow – it’s one of the busiest comping days of the week and you’ll have a new batch of social media competitions to enter so keep your eyes peeled for your Friday update.


Other than that have a fab weekend!

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.
