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.

Win a pay packet worth a grand!


Last week I won a really cute little edie & rona set of a travel mug, some sticky notes and a pack of scented ice-cream erasers. I'm keeping the mug but wrapping up the other bits for Abigail's birthday in June. I've got a nice little stash of wins put by already for her birthday; including the full collection of David Walliam's books and a personalised story book. I think it's great that this hobby allows us to be able to gift prizes; and once I've got the kid's birthdays out of the way I will start to think about a Christmas box (eekk....I didn't really say that word!). I find it's a wonderful way to save money for birthdays and the month of December.
Now talking of money have you seen the comps listed on our website this week? You can win yourself a £1,000 personal shopping experience! Plus a whole host of other lovely prizes; including things like holidays, items for the home and garden and lots more wonderful goodies. And you know what they say - you've got to be in it to win it!
And take a look at the comp I've found to share with you all this week; win a pay packet worth a grand! Budgens is offering you the chance to grab yourself a £1,000 Red Letter Day voucher - and they have four to give away. Simply enter your details here before 7th June to get your name in the draw - good luck!
It's getting to that time of year where people start to look forward to their summer hols and for anyone lucky enough to be jetting off to sunnier climes take a look at this ; the Halifax Clarity credit card - it's the perfect travelling companion. You can use it worldwide with no fees and they are giving you £20 cashback on accounts opened by 3rd September (terms apply). And because there are no exchange fees you get pretty decent rates too!
However, if you're staying within the UK and driving to your holiday destination, check out Petrol Prices . You can search by postcode, town or city and they'll find the cheapest prices for that day in your area! You can also sign up here to receive fuel prices straight to your inbox.
Also be sure to head on over to our Facebook page where you will find a selection of competitions; it's also a wonderful comping community where you can chat to other compers and share your own comping news and advice.

Good luck and happy comping!
