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!

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.
