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 year's worth of flowers here!
I've got to say the weather has been pretty awful since the kids broke up; all those days of pure sunshine when they were at school and now we're stuck with drizzly rain! Typical! However, we've still managed to do some fun stuff, albeit fun stuff that costs money. I'm hoping that this week brings some nicer weather as we are off on our first summer holiday short hotel break on Saturday to Stratford-upon-Avon. I've never been there before so I'm planning on taking lots of pictures ready to stash by for any future photo comps! Not comping much at the moment but thinking about when I start properly again in September.
 
Now talking of comps, take a look at the one I've found for you this week; Bloom and Wild are offering you the chance to win a Homewings Premium Interior Design Package and 12 months of flowers. And all you have to do is pop your details here before 23.59 on 8th August to be in with a chance. Good luck!
 
Also make sure you head on over to the Simply Prizes website ; there are a whole host of competitions listed including ones like an all-inclusive ski holiday to the Alps, theatre tickets, a home style makeover and lots more! And if you're not yet a member you can trial the service free for 14 days to make sure you like it.
 
Superdrug has brought back it's one million surprises campaign where they have loaded one million of their Health and Beauty reward cards with surprises. When you shop in store and swipe your card you could benefit from extra points or your basket for free! You have until 22nd August to get shopping and win.
 
You can always be sure that companies will offer lots of 'kid's deals' for the summer break. If you fancy going Mexican head on over to Chiquito , download their app and get either £10 off your food bill or allow your little ones to eat for a quid. Not only that but you'll find plenty of other offers once you're signed up too.
 
Hungry Horse also has the offer of kids eating for a quid (terms and conditions apply) but not only that if you do decide to eat there you can enter yourself into their 'everyone's a winner' comp. Add the entry code from the bottom of your till receipt here to be in with a chance of winning 1 of 4 £500 cash prizes, 1 of 8 £250 cash prizes, Cadbury World family tickets, Hungry Horse vouchers and even more. On top of all that entrants will also be entered into a draw to win a grand; closes 3rd September so you've plenty of time to set that dinner date.
 
Also be sure to head on over to our Facebook page where you will find a selection of competitions; it's also a wonderful comping community where you can chat to other compers and share your own comping news and advice.

 

Good luck and happy comping!

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.
