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.

Anyone for a Big Mac?



The infamous McDonalds Monopoly starts tomorrow and with over 9.3 million prizes claimed in the 2015 season you’d be silly not to enter!


So from 16th March head down to your local fast food restaurant and buy one of the promotional menu items and simply peel off the Monopoly Prize Choice game piece sticker. There are three ways to join in the fun; instant win, collect to win and win cash online! I happened to win a tenner last year online so it’s definitely worth entering the codes.


McDonalds say there are millions of prizes up for grabs this year and they’ve added some new features too. There are one million medium Extra Value Meals to be won if you collect the two Brown properties - Old Kent Road and Whitechapel Road; new prizes have been added for you to customise and personalise such as a custom MELLO skateboard, and they’ve doubled the number of cash prizes to be won online every minute.


This year’s comp runs until 26th April and the promotional items can be purchased after 10.30am. There is a limit of 24 entries per day and you need to be aged 16+ to participate.


Mine’s a Big Mac; good luck all!

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.
