2014 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for FPL. Having raised the daily prize to £30 just 2 weeks ago, we’re moments away from raising it to £40 already!
FPL had been growing at a slow but steady pace since it launched in April 2011 until we were posted on HotUKDeals.com in January (see article below) and thousands of new members joined in just 1 day. At that point I announced that the daily prize pot would go up again to £40 per day once the percentage of all UK postcodes entered reached 4%.
Just a week later I was contacted by a member of the MoneySavingExpert.com Deals team saying that they were fans of the site and one of them had even won! They wrote an article about FreePostcodeLottery.com and even included us in their weekly newsletter which gave us another big jump in signups.
Then, a few days afterwards, we were featured on CloudFreebies.co.uk and in their weekly newsletter which, again, gave us a big bump in registrations. CloudFreebies.co.uk is updated every day with Freebies, Free Samples, Free Stuff and Competitions in the UK. Updated Daily by their very own freebie hunters.
To top it off, you guys have been posting your referral links on all sort of sites like Facebook, Twitter, Reddit.com, MumsNet.com and TopCashback.co.uk. So massive thanks to everyone. Not to mention websites that have been supporting us for ages like FreeStuff.co.uk, MoneyMagpie.com, PrizeBug.co.uk, UKWins.co.uk, CompetitorsCompanion.com, and CompetitionClub.co.uk.
So, at the time of writing this, we’re on 3.89% of UK postcodes entered. Just 0.11% to go before we raise the prize money again to £40 per day! So, if you haven’t yet, please help by posting your referral link wherever you can. We’ll get by with a little help from our friends 😉
