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.

My first winning update for 2016!


Considering I started the month with a bad dose of man-flu (kindly shared with me from the hubby) and entering comps took a back seat; I’ve now fully recovered – health and comping wise! So far I have won two books, a DVD and a case of 9Bar bars. A nice little stash of goodies which gives me a really positive feel for my hobby!


I’m remaining organised and ensuring I stick a few days ahead of closing dates which helps to make sure I don’t miss any good comps out there. I’m keeping a list of my wins (which last year I was completely disorganised with!) and that means I can keep track and chase any lost prizes.


And talking of wins, I’d love to see yours so far for 2016 and don’t forget any that are published on our letters page will bag a tenner. You can send your letters and pics into info@oxonpress.co.uk with Letters Page in the subject line or send them via private message or post on our wall on our Facebook page

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.
