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.

Your August issue of Simply Prizes is here!


Did you know that just turning up to work could win you a whopping £100,000? Well if you fancy pocketing that cool amount of cash then make sure you check out your August edition of Simply Prizes! You'll find out all about this competition and how to enter it, as well as 424 more comps in your brand new update. The paper edition will be with you on Saturday, but if you can't wait to get started, you'll find all of the competitions from the magazine listed here on our website right now.

And if a brand new car is more your thing, then how does driving around in a shiny new Mini sound? This month we've got an exclusive White Silver Mini to be won, perfect for the daily commute, picking the kids up from school, or for taking further afield. It's the ideal stylish car, whatever the journey.

You'll also find a useful guide to entering video competitions in the magazine. If you haven't given any of these sorts of comps a go before, it's well worth it as the entry numbers for them tend to be much lower than for a regular prize draw. You don't need any fancy equipment to enter them either - just your phone is fine. Check out my top tips and then have a go for yourself; don't forget to let me know how you get on! You can contact me via the website here or on our Facebook page.


I'll be back in touch soon, but until then, good luck and happy comping!

P.S Don't forget your SP Extra comps either - we've just added 60 new comps to this section too. It's turning out to be a bumper comping day :) 

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.
