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.

VIP it all the way to Edinburgh with Virgin Money...

After spending last weekend decorating, I am looking forward to devoting some time to entering competitions this coming one; I’ve been really slack lately and family stuff has taken over (which is fine obviously) but I rather fancy winning some things again! I did manage to grab a little win from Twitter though – a BBQ cleaning utensil – one for the hubby; although not too sure he appreciated my winning gift! Ha!

Midway through the year

Around this time, I always like to have a tally up of my wins so far; the kind of half-way mark if you like. And although I thought I hadn’t done that well I’ve actually won some pretty decent prizes; there was the all year-round veggie plant win (for the hubby again!), a luxury glamping stay (we’re going in July), tickets to the official naming ceremony of a new cruise ship (where we had onboard accommodation and fully inclusive food and drinks) plus quite a few other bits and bobs. It was really motivating looking through my spreadsheet and it’s given me a kick to get back into it.

Get in touch

So, if you fancy sharing your wins so far of 2019 drop me an email at: info@oxonpress.co.uk or post on our Facebook page. Sharing on social media is always lovely and shows other compers that you’ve got to be in it to win it!

This week’s competitions...

And onto this week’s comps; good luck!

Virgin Money are giving away a VIP weekend in Edinburgh which includes a three-night stay at the luxury five-star Radisson Collection Hotel, plus VIP tickets to the spectacular Virgin Money Fireworks Concert, return travel and £200.

Littlebird has a £150 Sunuva children's swimwear voucher up for grabs here and Gatwick Airport is offering you the chance to win a £250 holiday voucher here.

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