MoneySavingExpert has recommended a quick way to get up to £2,500 for free.
Martin Lewis’ website regularly shares tips and tricks on how people can save money and bag themselves some freebies. In the latest cost of living support tidbit, the MSE Deals account posted to Twitter about how you can get your hands on some cash, by using Pick My Postcode.
This scheme was formerly known as Free Postcode Lottery, but should not be confused with Postcode Lottery – a scheme that gives out bigger amounts of money, but costs to play. On their Twitter page, they wrote: “It sounds too good to be true, but Pick My Postcode is a fun competition that runs daily and is completely free to enter”.
The website explains the draw as “a fun competition that’s been running daily since 2011”. As reported by the Echo, the biggest prize that has been claimed since it started has been £2,500.
Despite this large sum, participants can still get their hands on a decent amount, with the main daily jackpot draw currently being £200, which is rolled-over if not claimed. An extra bonus of 3p can also be earnt every day you check on the site, which is added to your winnings if you get the jackpot.
Pick My Postcode is funded by ads, appearing all over the site, as well as links to freebies and surveys. However, you do not have to click on them whilst you’re on the site, they are simply paying to be on there.
Smaller games include the £50 Survey Draw, which you can enter by answering a quick survey question. There’s also a chance to win £10 on Stackpot, if your postcode appears on the list that’s updated twice a day.
All you have to do to enter the draws is be over 18 and register with your email address here. It has been assured by the site owner, Chris Holbrook, to MSE, that your email address will never be passed on to any third parties and you won’t be required to enter any card details.
