A good habit to get into

Reader's Digest Editors

Just because something is routine doesn’t mean it has to be a chore. It takes seconds to visit the Free Postcode Lottery site and find out whether you’ve won

Make sure you drink plenty of water, brush and floss your teeth, and eat your greens; before you leave the house make sure you’ve got your phone, wallet and keys with you; oh, and after 12pm visit the Free Postcode Lottery site to check whether you’ve won the £500 jackpot or any of the daily draws.

Introducing a new element to your daily routine doesn’t take a lot of time or effort. But it can make an enormous difference to your life. And Free Postcode Lottery is one thing that is well worth scheduling into your everyday activities.

Like all the most brilliant ideas, Free Postcode Lottery is astonishingly simple. It offers players the chance to win real cash sums without shelling out a penny. All you have to do is register with the site using your email address and postcode, which will be entered into the daily prize draws. If your postcode comes up, you have 24 hours to claim your money before it rolls over into the following day’s prize pot.

To check whether you’ve won, just visit the site daily. There’s no catch, and no risk; there are no hidden charges, and your data will never be passed on to anyone.

Free Postcode Lottery makes its money from advertising on the site – the more regularly you visit, the more money they make from advertisers – and the more likely you are to discover that you’ve won. It’s similar to a free newspaper that’s funded by advertising – except it takes seconds to read, and you could win £500 or more. Which, come to think of it, is actually a lot more fun than eating your greens.
