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.

Don’t just dream it – win it!


Hotels.com is offering you the chance to win the trip of a lifetime by creating your very own bucket list.


To get started you will need to choose your top five destinations from the list here. Once you’ve picked (and it’s a pretty hard choice!) and pressed continue you’ll be directed to another page where you can complete the online entry form.


Regardless of what you’ve chosen all entries will have an equal chance of winning as it is a random prize draw. You have until 11.59pm on 30th September to get your name in the hat and the draw takes place on 7th October.


The lucky winner will receive a travel voucher which can be used on Expedia to redeem a round-trip economy class airfare for two from the major UK airport nearest to the winner's home to the specific destination chosen from the winner's bucket list; and accommodation (one standard room, double occupancy) for two people for a maximum of five nights in a Marriott hotel at the chosen destination. The travel must be taken by 31st December.


Good luck!

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.
