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 group holiday for eight people!
The hubby and I had an evening out at the cinema last Friday with drinks and popcorn thrown in, courtesy of a win from Dover Castle. We watched Dunkirk and if you've not yet seen it, you must; it's an absolutely brilliant film! I've also booked a last minute holiday for us all too, so we're off to the Suffolk coast for the last week of August. I'm actually enjoying taking a break from the comps, but I know come September I will be itching to get going again!
 
Now take a look at the comp I've found for you this week; Canopy & Stars are offering you the chance to win a group holiday (for you and seven friends) to Pembrokeshire. They will even throw in a bundle of Osprey Goodies. To get your name in the draw simply enter your details here by 31st August. Good luck!
 
Now talking of luck, be sure to head over to the Simply Prizes website . If you play your cards right you could bag yourself one of the many wonderful prizes that are currently featured. From a family meal box worth over £600, to a luxury stay and safari trip to South Africa worth a whopping £5,000, to a £1,000 currency card; plus plenty more!
 
Ed's Diner is letting kids eat for free all summer! Until the 31st August if you purchase a main adult meal anyone under the age of 16 will be entitled to a free meal from their hot dog, burgers, diner favourites and breakfast menu. They also have a loyalty app which you can download and then earn 10p for every £1 spent with them. And to top it off when you join you'll receive a free burger or hot dog in your welcome email, a free shake on your birthday and access to exclusive offers. And as a little extra treat they are also offering you the chance to win a family trip of a lifetime to Texas!
 
Now not ones to miss out on the action, Giraffe are also offering a kids eat free deal ; available all day Monday through to Sunday you can get one free kids meal deal (main, selected drink and dessert) per full price adult main purchased. Offer ends 3rd September. And I'm not saying they are copy cats but you can also win a holiday through them too!
 
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!

Ho Ho Ho! Grab yourself a festive spa break with SP Xtra!
With the kids now back to school I'm on a countdown to my winning holiday in Sri Lanka. My tickets arrived at the weekend, so it all feels real now! I've got so much to organise as not only do I need to make sure the hubby and I are sorted, but I need to make lists for the babysitters and jot down the kid's schedules (as they have far busier socials lives than us!). I think by the time I arrive at the resort I'll be ready to chill for the whole week!
 
Now talking of chilling, I think you should head on over to Simply Prizes where you will find some lovely competitions; settle yourself down with a cuppa and get comping. Most take a few seconds to enter and there are hundreds of competitions currently listed featuring tickets for days out, short breaks, holidays, toys, things for the home and garden plus lots more!
 
And I've also found a corker of a comp for you too; how do you fancy a Christmas spa break to Bath? It includes a stay at The Queensberry boutique hotel in a deluxe room, including breakfast, tickets to the real outdoor ice rink Bath on Ice, two Twilight Spa Packages at Thermae Bath Spa, Britain's only natural thermal day spa, a hamper of Bath Christmas Market goodies and to top it off a free pass to many of Bath's top attractions and museums. A nice chance to relax before the onset of the festive madness. Simply enter your details here before 17th November to get your name in the draw.
 
I was hoping to be a bit more organised for Christmas before I jetted off to the sun but then I realised that Black Friday was going to fall while I was away - so I plan on shopping via Wi-Fi with a cocktail in one hand and my iPad in the other! However, I do realise that sometimes the deals can be hyped up so it's best to compare price, especially as a lot of promoters will release their deals before the day itself. But for your reference this year Black Friday is 24th November and Cyber Monday is 27th November. Last year a lot of retailers ran their deals for the entire weekend so if there is a shop or item you're hoping to get discounts in/on then just keep an eye on their website for sale news soon!
 
Also, pop 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.
 
Plus don't forget that tomorrow The Postcard Store are putting their prices up, so if you want to grab a pack of your favourites and beat the price increase, click here to visit their online shop now. 

 

Good luck and happy comping!
