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.

Never give up!

I’m like an extremely excited child this week, as I’m in the process of booking my winning Sri Lanka holiday!! I am just awaiting confirmation from the travel agent on the three submitted dates and then me and the hubby will be jetting off on a winning (child free – eekkk!) holiday later in the year! Prizes like this really do make this hobby so worthwhile and as much as we all have dry spells of weeks and sometimes even months, when a win like this comes along it makes it all worthwhile. So my motto for this week is never give up!


Every Thursday I include a variety of awareness days for the coming week where you might find promoters running accompanying comps. Ones to watch out for this weeks are; 23rd is National Pink Day alongside Take Your Dog To Work Day, National Kissing Day falls on 24th June so pucker up, as does Armed Forces Day; 25th June is Day of the Seafarer, 26th June sees the start of National School Sport Week (running until 30th June) and 27th June is International Sunglasses 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.


I have a busy weekend coming up as Abigail is having her 8th birthday party so I don’t envisage getting too many comps done but for all of you with some spare time make sure you keep an eye on the website tomorrow for your new update of comps!


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.
