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.

Happy Birthday Heathrow!


See how a previous flight from there could bag you a prize!

Heathrow Airport is celebrating its 70th birthday and is inviting you to share your ‘Heathrow’ stories with them and in return you may just nab yourself a rather special prize! They have 1000’s of gifts up for grabs and with a main prize of the ultimate trip to Australia with Qantas (of which they have 35 pairs of tickets available to win!) you’d be silly not to give this one a go.


There are six different promotion periods; with the final one ending at 23.59 on 23rd August. Each entry will be judged and by the looks of it you can enter one story per promotion period (if you have more than one to share of course!). A copy of the full terms and conditions can be found here.


You can add your story here and according to the T&C’s they are looking for heart-warming stories that have an extra quality to them and that show how Heathrow has played a main part. The entries are judged so it is best to keep to the criteria to be in with a chance.


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.
