Woohoo!! We've just reached the amazing milestone of 30 million registered postcards, and couldn't be prouder of every single one of you! Isn't 30 million a lovely round number? :)

30 million postcards!

And now ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for: postcard number 30,000,000 (DE-4221494) was sent by Postkartensammler in Germany on May 14th and registered today at 00:27 (UTC) by blooaum in Portugal. Hurray!

All spots on our guessing game were taken quite some time in advance, and the big winner was Licena, who picked the exact minute that postcard was registered. Congratulations, your new set of Urban Sketching postcards and the code for your shiny MOO postcards are on their way!

The other four lucky postcrossers who came the closest to the right time were olgaga98, Lara_and_Xavier, ThomW and vsemsnyatsasny - well done! You'll all receive a pack of 20 postcards from MOO!

Both the sender and the receiver will also receive a surprise pack of Everything is Connected, Keri Smith's wonderful book of adventure postcards.

And last but not least, our big heartfelt thank you to our team of volunteers, to MOO for generously sponsoring this giveaway, and most of all to you - all of you who send postcards and take this project further with your enthusiasm!

Onwards to the next million — one postcard, and one smile at a time! :)

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! :)

Remember when we celebrated 20 million postcards last October? Well, 9 months have passed, and we've already sent five million postcards more! So it's time to start the traditional guessing contest once again! :)

For those not familiar with 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 25 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 member who guesses the exact minute when postcard number 25 million is registered will win a pack of 40 MOO postcards (20 classic, 20 luxe) + a surprise set of 100 postcards.

But there's more! If you're not the lucky one, you could still win something: each of 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 1,500 postcards left to postcard 25,000,000. Check the contest page for more details.

So... what are you waiting for? Ask your lucky stars or open a spreadsheet to make your calculations... but be fast! Slots tend to run out quickly!

PS - MOO is having a 25% off sale until July 21st! If you follow the link to the special page for postcrossers, a small percentage of every purchase you make reverts towards Postcrossing - so with each pack of postcards you buy, you're also helping the project. Win-win! :)

For those who didn't participate the last times, it goes like this: every member has a chance to bet on the day and time on which they think the postcard number 20 million will be registered. And of course, there are prizes for the best guesses!

The member who guesses the exact minute when postcard number 20 million is registered will win a pack of 40 postcards (20 classic, 20 luxe) from MOO + Keri Smith's fantastic new postcard book - which we'll be reviewing and giving away soon.

But there's more! If you're not the lucky one, you could still win something: each of 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 1,500 postcards left to postcard 20,000,000. There are some more rules, which you can see on the contest page.

So... what are you waiting for? Brush up on your math skills or roll your dices... but be fast! Slots can run out quickly! :)

PS - MOO has also created a special page for postcrossers, giving all new customers a 15% discount on their first order. A small percentage of every sale made through that page reverts towards Postcrossing - so with each pack you buy, you're also helping the project. Win-win! :)
