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.

Hello from the other side of the world!

So as most of you are aware I am currently sunning myself on a winning holiday in Sri Lanka. I keep having to pinch myself as it all seems so surreal. I’d like to say we’ve been sight-seeing and soaking up the culture but, all we’ve really been doing is being waited on hand and foot, soaking up the rays and enjoying the gorgeous surroundings of our hotel. If you want to take a peek check out their website ; it really is the most beautiful place!


Now onto a selection of this week’s special awareness days; where you might find promoters running accompanying competitions – 24th is Black Friday (and judging by last year there were loads of comps around for this!), 26th is Stir up Sunday, 27th is the start of Book Week Scotland and also Cyber Monday. The best way to search for any comps is by using a hashtag before the named day across social media.


Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps. I won’t be around in the evening on the Facebook page for our usual comping chat as we are 5 and half hours ahead here, so I’ll be tucked up in bed ready for an early start Saturday as we fly home. However, jet lag permitting I’ll catch up with you all on Sunday!


Have a great weekend.
