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.

The journey to Christmas!


If you fancy having a bit of a back seat sing-along you could end up appearing in McDonald’s Christmas Day advert…but, not only that you may just bag yourself a car too!


There is a different prize up for grabs every week and each entry will go into the main prize draw to win a Fiat 500L Pop car.


So if you think you have what it takes to be one of the UK’s best back seat singers then upload your video here.


Tips to help you along the way;

  • Record in landscape – this is for TV!
  • Don’t distract the driver.
  • Put your seat belt on.
  • Add some festive fashion but try to avoid brand logos.


Now the song you’ll need to sing along to is Wizzard's I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day and you have until 23rd December to upload your entry. You can access the full terms and conditions here.


So all that is left to do is clear those vocal chords, don your festive gear and get in the car!


Good luck all!

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.
