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.

Friday’s Comping Chatter!

This week has flown by, albeit rather expensively for me! My washing machine decided to give up the ghost and my car broke down. So that glass of red wine has my name all over it this evening!


I hope all my SP’ers have had a great week though, and if you’re at a bit of a loose end this weekend then why not think about applying for the new series of Tipping Point? They are currently looking for contestants and applications are open until 14th April.


For those of you that don’t know, I appeared on Tipping Point a few years back and was lucky enough to get through to the final stage where I won £2,300. I love this show as it’s part luck and part knowledge which means you don’t have to be the brain of Britain to win. And also just the experience of going onto a game-show is a fantastic thing to happen and will leave you wanting to apply for more. I’ve done three now and one of my resolutions for 2017 is to try and get onto another one. I’ve not spotted any yet that take my fancy but if I was able to apply for Tipping Point again I 100% would!


If you need some hints and tips for game show applications then take a look at my guide here and don’t forget you can always contact me via our Facebook page if you need any further help. So what are you waiting for? Go on, give it a go and make sure you let me know how you get on.


Have a good weekend!

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.
