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.

Tuesday Talk!

As I head towards the end of the second week of the New Year I am sticking religiously to my comping routine. And I’m also making sure I clear all my emails at the end of each day too – which I was completely rubbish at last year if I’m honest!


So far for 2017 I have won a shop to win prize from some porridge which I bought on offer in Asda and this morning was notified of a win on Facebook. A prize a week is pretty good and if I can keep that up I’ll be impressed!


Did you see my Facebook post about Heart’s Faces for Florida competition? There are 20 holidays to Florida up for grabs and you can enter four times by submitting a different photo for each ‘entry period’. Each week there are five holidays available to win with a different theme; you can still enter for week one until 9am on 19th January. Then week two opens until 9am on 26th January, week three until 9am on 2nd February and week four until 9am on 9th February. The full terms and conditions can be found here .


It’s a great competition to get stuck into; as the entries are judged based on creativity and entertainment – so you can have some really good fun posing for the snaps! There are stickers to make your pics stand out more too. So my advice is to use your imagination and just go for it! Don’t worry about looking silly as they are looking for the feel-good fun factor.


If you do enter feel free to share your pics in our comping community on Facebook ! 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.
