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.

Bon Voyage!
I'm off on my holidays tomorrow morning; Eurostarring it down to the South of France and then a cruise around the Med! I'm extremely excited and have taken a break from packing (for everyone!) to chat to you guys. It's a pretty welcome break too as packing is a real bore! I'm hoping to be finished later so that I can relax with a glass of wine and an early night as we need to be up at the crack of dawn. I'm actually looking forward to a break from comping too as I find it always gives me a fresh and renewed energy for it once I start again.
But for those of you still in comping mode check out my pick of the comps! It's a bumper edition this week as I'm hoping my readers will be lucky.
Sainsbury's Magazine is giving away a luxurious weekend break for two to Gleneagles. Simply enter here by 31st August.
Amba hotels are offering you the chance to win a night's stay with breakfast at either their Amba Hotel Charing Cross or Amba Hotel Marble Arch hotels. Submit your details here by midday on 31st August.
Battlesteads Hotel and Restaurant is offering one lucky person the ultimate escape getaway with the stars; this includes two night's accommodation, an eight-course taster menu on the first night, breakfast each morning and observatory tickets on the second night. Just pop your details in here before 23.59 on 31st August.
Netmums has a family set of scooters that they are giving away worth over £500. Enterhere before midnight on 31st August.
They also have a KitchenAid Artisan Mixer plus three bottles of camp coffee up for grabs. Submit your details here before midnight on 31st August.
Holiday Extras has a competition to win a premium theatre break. Watch the video and answer the following question here before 30th August; the Strand Palace hotel is how many minutes' walk from the Aldwych theatre? Answer - 4 minutes.
As always keep an eye on my blog for more competition news and videos.

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.
