Blog > 30 Million Postcards... guess when!

We’re fast approaching the highly anticipated milestone of 30 million postcards, and so it’s time to launch the traditional guessing contest! Hurray!

YAY!

If you’re new to the game, it goes like this:

Every member has a chance to submit a bet for the day and time on which they think the postcard number 30 million will be registered. The bets need to be submitted on the contest page.

And of course, there are prizes for the best guesses, sponsored by MOO!

The postcrosser who guesses the exact minute when postcard number 30 million is registered wins a pack of 40 MOO postcards (20 original, 20 luxe) and a surprise set of 100 postcards from us.

But if you’re not the lucky one, don’t panic — we have more prizes! The 4 next best guesses (before or after the registering time) will also win a pack of 20 postcards from MOO.

Some rules: each time slot can only be chosen by one person, so the first person 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 1000 postcards left to postcard 30,000,000. Check the contest page for more details.

So… what are you waiting for? Fire up your spreadsheet or check your horoscope… but be quick to pick a time slot before we run out of them!

PS – If you’d like to order your postcards from MOO, don’t forget to follow the link to their special page for postcrossers, to get a 15% discount on your purchase! A small percentage of every purchase you make on MOO through that page is given back to Postcrossing – so with each pack of postcards you buy, you’re also helping the project. Win-win! :)

1,000 cards before the end is quiet close ... it's not so hard to do the math then.

but as a frequent guesser in the forum i will lay my bet of course ...

What an achievement! And the guessing when the card will be registered is so much fun. Thanks to all Postcrossers for 30 million cards - 30 million smiles, 30 million moments of happiness.

It is to say that I have visited the PlayMobile fabric at Malta! They had very large postal carriers there, at least 1,20 meter. *IF* the carriers ever visit Malta, the fabric should be on their list to visit (by apointment only)! No postcards in the shop, but they have a nice greeting card. I did not manage to get PalyMobile cardbaordboxes to sent out as postcard that time.

Wow - 30 Million Postcards! And over half a million members! Time to celebrate Big Time (and, for some, to think about becoming Postcrossing Supporters).

donrene, Costa Rica
I have been in postcrossing since feb 15 and I feel it is not random as I have all except 2 of my sent cards and all of my traveling cards going to Russia and it takes more than a month for the russians to register my cards
