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.

Mother’s Day comps 2017 - updated


With Mother’s Day not far off you will soon start to see a flurry of competitions celebrating this. And with the big day falling on the 26th March you’ve got plenty of time to get yourself organised; typical questions promoters may ask will be things like – What is the best advice your Mum has ever given you? And why is your Mum so special? Some might want you to upload a pic of you and Mum, so if you don’t have any recent ones get snapping! And dig out any retro ones your Mum might have hiding around as they always prove popular too!


The majority of these comps will be on social media - Facebook and Twitter. I’ve already seen a few starting and have included those below – there will be more so keep an eye on this blog piece and I’ll update it as I find them.


Make sure to hunt out any local ones too; so listen to the radio, buy the newspaper and keep an eye on the social media feeds of local businesses (shopping centres and similar).


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.
