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.

Win a two-night stay at a Hilton hotel anywhere in the world!
I am so behind on my competitions at the moment and every time I sit down to do any I end up clearing the hundreds of emails in my inbox and not really getting stuck into anything else. So I've kind of resigned myself to giving up almost completely until the kids go back to school in September. Fresh start for the autumn! Plus we are off on a little mini-break this weekend to Jimmy's Farm in Suffolk (if you've never been you should go - makes for a great day out and the kids always have a blast); so I don't have the time really anyway!
But for all of you still comping your little hearts out check out this belter I have found; Country and Town House are offering you the chance to win a two-night stay at any Curio Collection by Hilton property around the world. Simply enter your email address here before 31st August to be in with a chance. Good luck!
If that comp has got you wanting more head on over to the Simply Prizes website ; there are hundreds of comps listed and waiting to be won including a car of your choice (to the value of £12,000), a holiday for two to Kenya, a Caribbean cruise worth over £7,000 plus plenty more!
For those of you that enjoy a slice or two of pizza did you know that at selected Pizza Hut restaurants on a Wednesday evening between 6pm and 9pm you can take advantage of their evening buffet? It is priced at £12.99 for the adults and £7.99 for the under-12s. You can get more info and see the participating huts here .
If you buy a promotional pack of chocolate you can grab yourself a free ticket to the cinema on a Sunday. You need to buy five small pouches/blocks (100-165g) or two large pouches/blocks (184-300g) to be eligible for the promotion and the packs must have the Sweet Sundays on them to qualify. You need to buy before 19th October and the promotion is valid until 12th November. You can get more information here .
Also be sure to head on over to our Facebook page where you will find a selection of competitions; it's also a wonderful comping community where you can chat to other compers and share your own comping news and advice.
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.
