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.

Bon Voyage!

I’m off on my hols this week – Eurostarring it down to the South of France and then departing on a Med cruise from Marseille. Needless to say comping will not be happening in the Fairman household; the only thing I plan on doing is eating and drinking to my heart’s content (cue fitness comps when I return!) and having some much needed family time.


However; I will keep in the loop with all of you via our Facebook page but just please bear with me on responding to any messages as this will be Wi-Fi dependant and so I may not be as quick off the mark as I usually am; if you have any urgent queries then please contact our customer services department either via email – info@oxonpress.co.uk or telephone - 01926 298986. They are open Monday – Friday 9-5.


I hope you all have lots of luck whilst I am away over the next few weeks and I look forward to catching up properly when I am home.


Good luck all!

New game show alert!

Spotted this whilst doing my regular browsing and wanted to share with you guys! There is a new BBC daytime quiz show and by the looks of it there is a jackpot of £15,000 to be had!


Applications need to be received by 4th September so I would recommend doing it as quickly as possible.


New shows don’t generally get as many applicants as ones that are in their second or more series run. Often because people don’t know what they are letting themselves in for!


You can apply here and you’ll need to register or log in first. Registration is free and easy. If you need any tips or pointers about what to say on the application form take a look at my game show guide here.


Good luck!

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.
