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.

Fancy five grand in your bank account tomorrow?


How was everyone’s long weekend (providing you didn’t have to work of course!)? We had a lovely one, saw some old friends and ate and drank far too much! But all back to normal here now in Kent; kids went back to school Tuesday (much to their dismay), hubby went back to work and I got back into my comping routine. Considering the kids have had over 2 weeks off and the comps took a bit of a back seat I’ve had 4 win notifications over the last few days; a sleepsuit, a personalised book for Abigail, 2 burgers and chips at Honest Burger and a case of breakfast cereal. So all in all now April isn’t doing too badly.


Have you had chance to look at the update of comps that went live Tuesday yet? My favourite by a long shot this week has to be the £5000 that could be in your bank account by Friday! It closes at 8am tomorrow so there isn’t long left to enter. I rather fancy a cash win right now; we’re in the process of adding a conservatory to our home and although we managed to get a bargain by buying it off EBay all the little bits add up! And I’d like to deck it out with some nice new furniture without having to budget too much.


Don’t forget that tomorrow is freebie Friday, so there will be another batch of great competitions going live on the site. And the best thing about those is most will have short closing dates, thus increasing your chance of a win!


I’ll be around in the evening if you fancy a comping chat via our Facebook page ; you’ll find me there with a glass of red!


Have a great weekend and good luck with the comps.

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.
