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.

Jet off on a holiday for two to Iceland...

What a great week it has been so far; Ed Sheeran’s concert on Monday was amazing and being a prize winner meant skipping the entrance queues too – which always makes for a much nicer experience. And I met up with my comping pal Mel, who was also lucky enough to win tickets, and we treated ourselves to a scrummy lunch before heading into Ipswich. All in all, a brilliant win.

Plus, I’ve finally won my first ‘baby’ prize for the new granddaughter – a Tommee Tippee nappy bin. And I get to choose the colour which means it will match her bedroom.

End of the month...

I’m planning on spending the last few days of my holiday entering end of month competitions; there are always so many of them around and being August, a lot of people are still away, so generally entries are lower at this time of year. Thus, boosting us ‘staycationers’ chances of a win!

This week’s competitions...

Now onto this week’s comps; good luck!
