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.

Not the ‘C’ word again!

Now I know I’m going to start annoying you all with that C word soon but feast your eyes on this! TGI Fridays are giving you the chance to win £5,000 smackaroonies to spend on whatever you want for Christmas!


Most compers do start thinking about Christmas once the summer is out of the way. We like to win what we can for the most expensive time of the year – so be prepared in the coming months for an onslaught of Christmas themed posts! And if it’s too soon well, bah humbug! But no in all seriousness, it’s good to be prepared in the world of comping!


So how do you go about winning that tasty five grand? Simply tell them in 250 words or less what would make your Christmas perfect this year – best answer wins!


Entries are open until 23.59 on 21st November and the lucky winner will be notified by email on the 23rd!


Good luck!

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.
