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.
Sign up to our free, weekly newsletter here to enter our free, exclusive competitions each week.
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.

the best prize I have ever won is a 5 night trip to LA including flights, transfers, hotel and spending Money. It was an amazing trip!
I used to do the Free Postcode Lottery daily but it finally got to be such a chore. I had so many adverts coming at me online that I set up an ad blocker, which of course is how the FPL makes its money, so I was asked to remove it. I prefer fewer ads, so stopped. I have been an avid comper for about 65 years. My first prize was a hairbrush and hand mirror set when I was nine. Over the years, I’ve won books, meals out, small amounts of cash and a packet of indigestion tablets –… Read more »
Years ago when they were still a big deal, I won a computer. It was so exciting as it was well out of my price range at the time!
The best prize that I have ever won, was a Marineville play set complete with the action figures and vehicles. Our son had this for Christmas, which was wonderful because we were rather short that Christmas 😀
I am signed up to this, its a great idea and the fact that its free helps. Just waiting for my postcode to be drawn!
The best prize ever was two flights to Dublin, two nights in an hotel and tickets to a concert.
Best thing I won was many years ago, a holiday ski-ing to Whistler, Canada. It was fabulous, standing on cold snow, sun shining and in tee-shirts! First and probably last time ever skied, but amazing and memorable.
Best prize I’ve ever won was a weekend at Colworth Park, with a trip to the Spirit of Christmas Fair, dinner in their Michelin-starred restaurant and a spa day all included
i once won a new phone, the day after my old one broke!!
Microsoft Surface Pro about 4 years ago – love it.
