Blog > A contest for the 10 million postcards milestone!

Today we’re announcing a different kind of contest! Some of you might have noticed we’re fast approaching the 10 million received postcards milestone. We’re quite excited about it, and to celebrate this achievement, we’re having a guessing game!

moo cards

It goes like this: every member has a chance to bet on the day and time on which the postcard number 10 million will be registered. The user with the closest guess gets the prize: a coupon for 120 postcards, an awesome offer from MOO!

All you have to do is go to the 10 million postcard page, and place your bet!

Each time slot can only be chosen by one person, so the first user to pick that slot gets to keep it. You can change it at a later stage, if you want, but only from the available time slots left. We will close the bets when there are 1,500 postcards left to postcard 10,000,000. There are some more rules, which you can see on the contest page.

So what are you waiting for? Give it a go, and good luck! :)

meiadeleite, Portugal
Just a small tip that might help: if you're basing your predictions on the number of postcards registered per hour, note that this number varies wildly throughout the day. For instance, it is much higher when big countries on Postcrossing (like Finland or the US) come home from work and check their mailboxes... :)

Good luck!

hmthompson, United States of America
I think you need to document this event on tape and photos beginning NOW and continuing to the magical ten millionth postcard. Possibly there exists commercial value to the Postcrossing site in showcasing its phenomenal growth through a film which could be showcased internationally.

Had to change my guess from my birthday as unless today is exceptionally busy the 10,000,000th card will not be registered today. Oh to be the one to send or receive the 10,000,00th card. What an honour that would be.

It is such an exiting moment, and secret to ( almost!) all of us! Wish I send or receive it maybe even more than winning the contest! Thanks to all the postcrossers through these years; this number means also two million smiles; on the faces of who did send and on the faces of who is receiving!

From my cards I have 10 travelling to Russia who might have a good chance to get registered tomorrow. That must be the BIG day.
I viewed my uploaded travelling cards - there are good pictures among them to be # 10,000,000. And I hope my mailwoman will be on time and bring some cards for me to register as well!
