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.

Brag about your June wins!

I’ve had a really busy week and not much time for anything comping related which means my emails have built up to their thousands again! Annoyed! So, I’ve decided to start afresh on 1st July and spend the last few days of June tidying up my inbox. I do love the start of a new comping month though and I always compile a little wish-list of prizes I’d like to win. As we are so close to the school summer holidays I plan on trying to enter comps that will give me things to amuse the kids; such as tickets for days out and toys. Don’t forget also to let me know how you all did in June; you can email your wins to info@oxonpress.co.uk or post on our Simply Prizes Facebook page and any that are published on our website will bag a tenner.


Every Thursday I include a variety of awareness days for the coming week; where you might find promoters running accompanying comps. This weeks are; today sees the start of the Goodwood Festival of Speed (ongoing until 2nd July), 30th June is National Cream Tea Day and also Wallace & Gromit’s Wrong Trousers Day, 1st July is Canada Day, International Joke Day, International Reggae Day and the Tour de France starts and runs until 23rd July and 4th July is America’s Independence Day, . As always the best way to search for any comps is using hashtags in the search bar of the social media account you are using.


I’m hoping to have a quieter weekend and get started on some July comps seeing as Saturday is 1st! Keep an eye out on the website tomorrow for your new batch of comps and good luck to all of you ploughing through the end of month ones!


Have a great weekend.
