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.

Friday’s Comping Chatter!

After chatting about gameshows with you last Friday I came across this ; Channel 4 are looking for new contestants who think they have what it takes to be a fugitive. The hit TV series Hunted is back and giving you the chance to win £100,000!


If you’ve not heard of this show it is about a team of everyday civilians who have to go on the run with a team of experienced investigators trying to track them down. If you manage to last the 28 days you will win a share of £100,000 with other winning survivors.


It’s a pretty big prize pot and the TV company will cover reasonable pre-agreed loss of earnings. So it’s worth a shot, right?


To apply you must be 18 or above, in good health and a British National. The copy of the full terms of entry can be found here . The deadline for applying is midday on 6th February.


It just all sounds very James Bondish to me and I’d love for one of my SP’ers to give it a go! How exciting! This isn’t one for me purely because I can’t be away from the family for that long and in all honesty I’d probably be pretty rubbish at hiding! But for those of you who might have what it takes; go for it!


Have a good weekend!

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.
