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.

Jet off to the Big Apple with this week's SP Xtra

I’m off on a little spa break this weekend with the hubby, courtesy of a gift from the eldest daughter. So, I’m hoping that the sun will be shining as we’re heading to Marlow and I’ve heard that the walks and boat trips along the Thames are lovely. I’m also planning to get ahead on the comps today and tomorrow. I was a little slack in April so need to up my game for May!

This week’s competitions

Now talking of comping check out these beauties I have found for us all this week; there is the chance to win a trip to New York, a Champneys stay and a VIP trip to Efteling.

National Book Tokens is offering you the chance to jet off to the Big Apple staying three-nights in NU Hotel Brooklyn, New York. Included are flights, breakfast at the hotel plus a five-course meal and cocktails at the renowned Battersby Brooklyn. To get your name in the draw enter here before 23.59 on 2nd August.

Evans has an overnight stay for two at Champneys up for grabs. You’ll be treated to breakfast, lunch and dinner plus full access to the spa and fitness classes. Just submit your details here before 23.59 on 20th May.

Family Traveller is giving away a VIP trip to Efteling; including a two-night stay, Eurotunnel travel, VIP tour, Efteling character meeting, lunch at Polles Keuken pancake restaurant, dinner at Raveleijn restaurant, photograph and meeting with rollercoaster operator, presentation and discussion of their award-winning entry with members of the Efteling design team and a specially created ‘Efteling Head of Wonder’ badge! Wow! And to enter you need the kids for this one. Efteling would like your child to tell them what ‘wonder’ means to them, whether it’s an idea for a new ride, something based on the most wondrous experience they’ve had on holiday, or a concept from deep in their imagination. Submissions can be in the form of photo, drawing, writing or video. Full details can be found here which will include where you submit your entry. Entries close at 23.00 on 12th June. Good luck to the kids!

We've had a great response to the launch of the Complete Comper, thanks you to everyone who has written in saying what good value it is, readers like Marilyn, who said, it's "too good an opportunity to miss." Trica S agreed saying "The offer price, including all your goodies, is amazing."

We were only allowed to offer 100 places, and these have been filling fast. When I spoke to Lizzie, earlier this week she said that over half had already gone, and I'm sure lots more will have gone by now. So if you don't want to miss out, read more here.
