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.

Watch out for tomorrow’s social media comps!

I had a great weekend away with the hubby last week and we even managed to get an upgrade at the hotel; which meant our room was on the top floor with views of the London Eye. It was superb! However this weekend I plan on catching up on some comps and housework; the kids break up from school tomorrow and so far it’s been a busy week with last minute summer prep and sports day which means I’ve not had much time for anything else. I did have a win though – a case of Amigo Tequila Beer; one for the hubby!


Now, onto this week’s variety of awareness days; where you might find promoters running accompanying comps; today is Space Exploration Day, Lollipop Day, World Jump Day, International Chess Day and Moon Day, 21st is Junk Food Day and also the start of National Fishing Month, 24th is Tequila Day, Cousins Day, Tell an Old Joke Day and also the start of National Parks Week and 25th is Wine and Cheese Day. As always the best way to search for any comps is using hashtags in the search bar of the social media account you are using.


Keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your update of social media comps; there are some great ones there so good luck to you all! I’ll be around in the evening via our Facebook page if anyone fancies a comping chat.


Have a great 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.
