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.

Tick tock, bling bling, jewel love this week's comps!
I've had no new wins here but I'm trying to stay organised and on top of my comping, so am hoping for a prize or two soon! Talking of prizes if you head on over to the Simply Prizes Facebook page you'll find a chance to win a £20 M&S voucher in a prize draw that is running until 5pm on Monday 3rd October. All you need to do is pop a comment onto the thread to be in with a chance. Good luck!
However in the meantime on to this week's comps!
Monica Vinader has the chance for you to win either a Jenny Walton exclusive illustration or £2,500 to spend on Monica Vinader jewellery. Just enter your details here before 23.59 on 11th October.
Square Mile has a Shinola watch worth £475 up for grabs. Answer the following questionhere before 15th October; in what city is Shinola based? Suggested answer - Detroit.
Online Golf is giving away two TomTom Golfer 2 GPS watches. Submit your details herebefore midnight on 3rd October.
If you have your sights set on a new iPhone 7 then take a look at Three's flexible finance plan. If you sign up to a 12 month Three sim only contract then you can opt into their interest free payment scheme and grab yourself a brand new phone (subject to t&c's). Further details and how to apply online can be found here.
Recently seen in the press and on TV, Yahoo admitted to being hacked back in late 2014 and are advising users to change their passwords. If like me you use Yahoo mail (which is the email account I use for my comping) then it is worth reading this; a statement released by Yahoo advising users what to do regarding the security breach.
Vision Express is offering free eye tests (worth up to £25) via an online voucher. The voucher and booking confirmation will be emailed to you once you have successfully requested an appointment. However, you'll need to be quick to redeem this offer as it is only available until 23.59 on 30th September although you'll be able to book an appointment until to 31st October. Remember to take the voucher with you to your appointment too in order to claim your free test.
As always keep an eye on my blog for more competition news and videos.
That's it for this week, but I'll be back next Wednesday with some more great comps and special offers.

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.
