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.

Cruise the Med!

 

Last week was by far my best comping week in terms of numbers for a while. I won four prizes and actually scooped two in one day; now that has not happened in a long time! My wins include a DVD for the children, a DKNY beach towel, a t-shirt and a pair of sandals of my choice. All bar one were from comps on social media too which I had all but given up on...it just goes to show that giving up should not be allowed in this game! And although they are not high value items, they are all things that will get lots of use. I feel like I am really back into the swing of comping now and, buzzing from my wins, I'm raring to go this week too!

In the meantime it's over to you guys for my pick of the big three comps for this week; good luck!

Ice Lolly is giving away a seven-night Mediterranean fly cruise for two people. All you have to do is enter your details here before 23.59 on 6th July.

Dorset Cereals is giving you the chance to win one of three luxury hotel breaks in their monthly draw. You'll be treated to two nights in a plush bedroom, along with champagne and canapés on arrival, a three course dinner with wine on the first night, and a traditional full English breakfast on both mornings. Just submit your details here before 23.59 on 30th June.

The Evening Standard has a pair of tickets to see Will Young supported by Billy Ocean at Kew the Music on 13 July, plus a backstage meet and greet before the show. Enter here before 23.59 on 3rd July.

It's worth taking a look at Selfridge's website or heading on down to one of their stores. They currently have a sale on and seeing as they famously only do two a year you can bag yourself a pretty decent deal. Happy shopping!

Groupon has its great offer on Odeon cinema tickets again; buy two for a tenner or five for £20! Valid until 20 July on 2D films you can purchase them here and you can also see the full t&c's.

Halfords is offering its customers a free summer car check to help ensure your vehicle is ready for any long journeys you may take over the coming months. The check includes the battery, light bulbs, windscreen wipers, oil levels, screen wash levels and air conditioning. There is no need to book, just turn up and they even top up your screen wash for free too.

Stay lucky!

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.
