Did you know you can join Pick My Postcode for free and potentially win cash prizes just for checking their site?
All you do is sign up (again, for free) here with just your postcode and your email address. Then you check back every day to see if your postcode has been picked on that particular day.
If it has been picked, you can then claim your winnings. It’s honestly that easy!
They add about £800+ to the prize fund periodically, and at the time of writing, the prize fund sits at £1900 due to multiple rollovers on their Main Draw. They also give away lots of smaller £5, £10, and a few £100 prizes for smaller draws.
But that’s not all. The site has all sorts of other ways you can win. See how below!
Originally, Pick My Postcode was set up by Chris Holbrook, who started giving people the chance to win just £10 if they signed up to the site for free.
They checked it each day to see if their postcode had won. In fact, MoneyMagpie knew about this site in its early stages and mentioned it in our competitions article here.
After a while the site got more popular and the prizes started to get a bit bigger until they got up to £800+ a day.
Not only that Chris has since added even more competitions to the site.
Now there are six ways you can win on the site:
The revenue generated from adverts, offers and surveys on the site pay for the prizes.
It’s like a free local newspaper. It’s free to us because advertisers are the ones who fund the website and produce a profit at the same time.
As with a free paper, the more people who pick it up and read it, the more they can charge for advertising etc. This is how it works with Pick My Postcode. The more people who use the site, the higher the traffic and the more they can charge for advertising and affiliate links. And the more they can offer for prizes!
They’re pretty simple really.
You have to sign up with your postcode and email address. You also need to check the site once a day to see if you have won.
If you have won something, you will see a ‘Collect’ option. Once your identity has been verified, the money is sent to you via PayPal.
There are strict rules which you can see here.
As you can see above, you could win anything from a fiver up to thousands.
The most someone has won so far has been £2,500. With different ways to earn every day, it’s worth checking the site daily to see what you could win.
