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.

Week Three - Summer Holiday Kid's comps!

I really haven’t comped much at all over the last week, doing a few here and there and making sure I keep on top of my emails is about as much as I have managed. I did get a nice little prize bundle of Palmer’s goodies through the post to pamper myself with though, which considering the boredom of the summer hols is now kicking in a bit with the children I feel I need it! And we don’t go away until the last week of August; so we’re trying to fit in a few days out here and there that don’t cost the earth!


However, as it is the summer holidays I am trying to get the kids to get stuck in to the children’s comps that are doing the rounds. I’ve included a couple this week that the kids can enter; if you missed last week’s newsletter you can check it out here where you will find some more comps for the kids.


Joules is running a design a lunchbox promotion to win a family holiday and a £2,000 gift card. Now although you have to be over 18 to enter there is no harm in letting the kids loose with this one; just make sure you put your details on the entry form! It’s open until 3rd September.


Claudi & Fin are calling all lolly lovers and asking them to design their own! Let the kid’s imaginations run wild and dream up their lollies! The more colourful the better according to Claudi & Fin. Entrants need to be aged 3-10 years and comp closes on 3rd September. Once they’ve designed it they need a grown up to take a photo and upload it to the Claudi & Fin Facebook page including the child’s name and age. Full terms and conditions can be found here .


Have fun with these ones and I’ll include some more next week for the little terrors! And for the rest of you keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps. Also I’ll be around in the evening via our Facebook page if anyone fancies a comping chat.


Have a great weekend.

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.
