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.

Strut your stuff like a VIP at London Fashion Weekend!
I'm finally back into my routine of comping and ready to tackle the month of September head on! I'm hoping that my enthusiasm and commitment will see some wins arrive. Don't forget to let me all know how you're doing; you can find my contact details here. And if you are lucky enough to have your win featured on our website you'll bag yourself a tenner!
So in the meantime on to this week's comps - good luck!
The Evening Standard is offering you the chance to win a VIP experience for two at London Fashion Weekend. Simply register/log in and enter your details here before 23.59 on 18th September.
Mumsnet is giving away a £500 supermarket voucher of your choice. Register/log in and answer the following question here before 7th October; what's the name of the TV dietician that Princes has teamed up with? Suggested answer - Lucy Jones.
East has an afternoon tea for two, a £300 gift card and a Biscuiteers Fashionista Tin up for grabs as well as offering two runners up a Biscuiteers Fashionista biscuit tin plus £100 to spend at EAST each. Submit your details here before 2nd October.
If you're travelling with Virgin Trains at any point be sure to check out BEAM, which is their new on-board complimentary entertainment service. It gives you access to films, TV box sets plus magazines and games for you to read and play with. Take a look here (link 6) for more info.
Travelodge has up to 20% off London stays; you can bed down from 16th September through to 30th October but you'll need to be quick as bookings must be made before midnight on 15th September. Take a look here.
And if you fancy clutching on to the last of the summer then check out British Airways; the world is on sale. There are plenty of bargains to be had but you'll need to book by 21st September.

Good luck and happy comping!

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.
