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 stay in Britain's oldest hotel

It was my birthday Saturday as well as St Patrick’s Day and I was lucky enough to win a suitcase in one of the themed comps for myself and a friend. So, that was an extra nice birthday surprise. Keep your eyes peeled across social media over the coming weeks as I’m sure there will be lots of themed comps featuring Easter, Red Nose Day and Sport’s Relief.

Grab your stamps now

For those of you that like dabbling in postal comps you might want to stock up on stamps before Royal Mail increase their prices on 26th March. There are also companies out there that offer discounted stamps (however their prices will reflect the rise), I’ve ordered from here before and every bit you save helps.

This week’s competitions

How do you fancy jazzing up your spring wardrobe? St Christopher’s Place is offering you the chance to win £500 to spend with them. Submit your details here with the answer Flora Starkey. Be quick though as this one closes on 25th March.

Sainsbury’s Magazine has a luxury weekend break worth £600 up for grabs. You’ll get to relax in your junior suite and breakfast and dinner are thrown in on both nights too. Plus, they’ll treat you to an English cream tea on arrival and a chilled bottle of fizz and chocolates in your room. Enter here before 23.59 on 18th April.

Now this one really appeals to me and would be one to tell the grandkids; win a stay in Britain’s oldest hotel. Staying in a newly refurbished room in the oldest part of the Maids Head above ground, which dates from the 15th century would certainly be a bucket list prize that’s for sure. You’ll also get dinner to the value of £60 and breakfast supplied too. Just pop your details in here before 31st March.

Head over to Facebook

Make sure you head on over to Simply Prize’s Facebook page, my team list a selection of comps throughout the day offering you even more chances to win. And I’m around in the evenings if you fancy a chat.

Have a great weekend compers!
