A Very Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year From SP XTRA

Well this is it; the last newsletter of 2017! I probably say this every year but I can’t believe how quickly it has flown by. I’ve got some rather special comping highlights to remember too which I always like to reflect on as we head to December 31st.

My scrapbook of wins isn’t as full as it has sometimes been but this year by far has given me some amazing prizes which include two winning holidays. Me and the family headed to York to stay in a luxury lodge back in May and then more recently in November the hubby and I jetted off to Sri Lanka on the holiday of a lifetime. So, I am ending my comping year on a high and full of enthusiasm for 2018.

And if you’d like to try your luck next year then make sure you head on over to Simply Prizes where you can take advantage of a free trial we offer to new members. The site lists 1300+ competitions every month and is updated three times a week. So, if your new year’s resolution is to win big this is the place to start!

Win a foodie trip to Greece

Now talking of winning check out this wonderful competition I have found to share with you all; Stokes Mayonnaise is offering you the chance to win a foodie trip to Greece. You’ll get three nights to experience Crete and a personal guided tour to a koroneiki olive grove. There is also a tasty £500 thrown in too. And if that wasn’t enough they are also giving 10 runners up prizes of Stokes Sauces hampers. To get yourself in the draw simply answer the following question here before 31st January; what type of extra virgin olive oil do we use in our real mayonnaise? Suggested answer is Greek extra virgin koroneiki olive oil. Good luck.

Also, if you fancy a bit of a Christmas chuckle check out a selection of Xmas jokes that some of our subscribers submitted for the latest in-house comp we ran. Could be some budding comedians hidden amongst our SP’ers!

Have a glass of wine with me

Do be sure to pop on over to our Facebook page too, over the festive period, I will be there most evenings with a glass of red chatting about all things comping. You’ll also find a selection of competitions that we share daily on the page.

And if you have time for a break join your fellow compers for game of bingo on Coffee Break Bingo, the compers choice.

Finally, I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here’s to a lucky 2018! Cheers!
