3 years ago on Tuesday I sent a message to all my Facebook friends saying that I was going to give away £10 at midday. Understandably, they thought it was a hoax.
In hindsight, April 1st wasn’t the smartest date to choose to launch a new site, but eventually the message got through and after a few weeks of handing out money to old school chums it started to spread. For the first 6 months I was effectively running a charity until on the 11 of September 2011 (another inappropriate date) I started to break even. We’re now 3 years old and still here despite my poor timing.
For our first birthday I doubled the prize money from £10 per day to £20, and the following year I launched our sister site BirthdayBingo.co.uk.
This year, I’m having some FreePostcodeLottery.com T-Shirts made. Since it’s our birthday it seems appropriate to award some of these to our most loyal users. So if your bonus is over £10 you can claim your free T-Shirt (plus postage) by getting in touch through our contact form before midday tomorrow (Weds 2nd April). Please include your full name, address, whether you want Mens’ or Ladies’, what size (S, M, L, XL), and what colour (white, grey, light blue, light pink).
If you don’t qualify don’t despair. I’ll work out a way to allocate whatever we have left so it’s not only those with high bonuses who get a look in. I know how controversial that can be! 🙂
