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.

Welcome home!

I got back from my hols late Saturday evening with over 7,000 emails to trawl through (gulp!). However, they are cleared and my email address is looking spick and span in preparation for my comping to start properly again. I didn’t win much for August but I didn’t expect to as I was away for the bulk of it on two family holidays, and when I was at home I had two little Fairmans to amuse! The month’s wins consisted of two books and some tickets to a children’s’ play centre.


So on to a new month – September! My wish list from now through to December usually stays about the same as it’s now mission Christmas box time! I will be comping like a mad woman in the hope of winning my friends and family some decent Chrimbo pressies.


And with this in mind I’m going to start a weekly thread on Facebook where we can spur each other on and update our Christmas box wins; so keep an eye on the page!


Finally I’m wishing you all lots of luck for September – fingers crossed for us 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.
