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.

Win an adventure holiday for your child worth over £2,000!
We had a great weekend in Suffolk; a short break in a hotel and a day at Jimmy's Farm. We got home yesterday and I have a few days to get sorted before we head off on our hols on Friday. I'm looking forward to some quality time with the family and a relaxing lodge break, and once we're back it will be all systems go to get the kids ready for school again! I actually can't believe how quickly the summer hols have gone. I always find September a bit of a fresh start comping wise and I am looking forward to getting stuck into the comps again.
 
Now talking of comps, check this one out; LittleBird has a seven-night Adventure Holiday with PGL Travel Ltd for four children worth over £2,000 up for grabs. And it's simple to enter too - just submit your details here before 15th September to be in with a chance. Good luck!
 
And if you head on over to the Simply Prizes website you'll find loads more competitions. Among the ones currently featured are a fridge freezer worth over £1300, a family holiday to Portugal, a £500 shopping spree, a luxury camping holiday in France worth £1599 plus more!
 
I know most of us parents will probably be visiting Clarks at some point for back to school shoes! Whilst you are there you can do something good by helping UNICEF to reach even more children in danger by donating your old or unwanted shoes at your nearest store. You can find out more information here as well as finding your local branch.
 
If you are dining out at TGI Fridays from 25th-28th August be sure to play their 'Match It, Win It' game via the app. They will have thousands of prizes up for grabs. You just need to scan the barcode on your receipt and if you have spent £5 or more on food you'll unlock a scratch card. You can view the full terms and conditions here .
 
Also be sure to head on over to our Facebook page where you will find a selection of competitions; it's also a wonderful comping community where you can chat to other compers and share your own comping news and advice.

Good luck and happy comping!

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.
