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 wonderful Alice in Wonderland Adventure!


I hope everyone had a great Easter bank holiday; a four-day weekend is always nice! We had friends to stay so the kids were shipped off to Grandma and Granddad's to be spoilt whilst my mates helped me drink the case of wine (not quite all of it!) I won a few weeks back on Instagram! But now that the short break is over and with the children back to school today, I'm planning on getting back into my comping routine and hopefully blitzing the last of April with a load of entries. I'm always eager and raring to go after a school holiday as my hobby takes a back seat when the kids are off and I find having the break gives me a renewed enthusiasm to get going again!
Now if you head on over to our competitions section you'll find your brand new competition update, with 150 top prizes to be won. With everything from a luxury break in beautiful Tenerife to a brand new caravan styled by Joules, worth a whopping £20,000, you're bound to find your perfect prize!

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.
