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.

Share your Park Plaza moments for a chance to win big!


If you’ve ever stayed in a Park Plaza resort or hotel then take a look at this competition. They are offering you the chance to win a six-night break in Croatia in return for you sharing your #ParkPlazaMoments!


So what do you have to do? Just share a favourite photograph from your Park Plaza stay via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ParkPlazaMoments. Or you can upload your photograph here. You have until 6pm on 1st September to enter so even if you haven’t been yet but are due to over the summer months then you’ve still got time to enter.


There are three prize tiers, all of which are chosen at random. First prize grabs that six-night Croatian stay, second prize gets to enjoy a two-night break and third is a £100 ParkPlaza gift card.


Good luck all! Don’t forget to pack me in your suitcase!

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.
