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.

Caution! Naughty word below!

Now I’m going to get this out of the way and mention the C word! Don’t shout! I know we are only in July and to be honest shouldn’t even be thinking about Christmas but…Lapland UK over the next few weeks are giving away the chance to name the newest Husky puppy, copies of Lapland: The Untold Story of Father Christmas and best of all invitations to Lapland UK for this coming festive season. This is all to celebrate Mid-Christmas; which is the point that is 182 days since last Christmas and 182 days to Christmas. All you need to do is keep an eye on their social media Facebook page where they will be letting you know about these special Mid-Christmas surprises.


So now that I have got that out of the way (phew) onto this week’s variety of awareness days; where you might find promoters running accompanying comps. Wimbledon has started and is ongoing until 16th July, 5th July is National Bikini Day, 7th July is World Chocolate Day and 11th July is World Population 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.


The Fairmans are off to Chessington Saturday so there won’t be much comping here but good luck to all of you that are hoping to get some entries in over the coming weekend. And don’t forget a lovely new sparkly batch of comps will be added to the website tomorrow for you to get your teeth into.


Have a great weekend.
