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.

Amuse the kids with a day out in London with this week's SP Xtra...

So, the kids broke up on Tuesday, the weather has been boiling which means they’ve been quite happy playing in the paddling pool (few scrapes but nothing this referee can’t sort!). No money spent so far either which is win win!

Out and about...

However, I am planning on getting out and about with the darlings and whilst I amuse them, I will ensure I take lots of pictures. I always try and have a batch on my phone of local places ready for any photo comps I come across – and the kids make pretty willing models too!

Kids and comping...

And both my younger two enjoy the odd comp or two so I always treat them to a weekly magazine over the holidays and make sure I keep my ear to the ground for any local companies running comps for kids over the summer break. A great way to do this is via social media or local newspapers.

This week’s competitions...

Now onto this week’s comps; good luck!
