Found 9th Jul 2017
Free every month you get:

12 First Class and 4 Large First Class stamps every month (worth £11.72)

Plus:

Daily £10 prize draw (14 winners every day)
Weekly £100 prize draw

That's in return for posting a few letters (around 5 or 6) every week for them, and logging a few letters received (again, around 5 or 6 a week) onto their online system.

- Easy money for the small amount of work involved.


In your first posting pack you will receive a batch of twelve First Class and four Large Letter stamps. In your first live posting pack, you’ll receive a second batch of stamps, plus a Royal Mail presentation set of stamps.

Each month you take part in the live survey you’ll receive a further batch of twelve First Class and four Large Letter stamps. You’ll usually take a break after six months, and in your final pack you’ll receive a last batch of stamps together with another Royal Mail presentation set.

Each week a panellist is randomly selected from our active panel to win a prize of £100 in Love2Shop vouchers. If it’s you, you’ll receive a gold-coloured envelope, inside which you’ll find a SMART and a congratulations message!

Did this for about 8 month's, ok if you just needs to post items that go in the post box, gets a bit of a pain when you have to send parcels from the post office, you have to spend your own money and only get "love to shop" vouchers in return. In the end the post office in Epsom closed down so I ended it. Ok if you have the Time to sort out all the items coming through you post box.
everytime this is listed i feel i need to comment!
be warned it starts off easy a few letters recieved a few letters to send, but then it slowly increases, you need to start logging on daily to say when and time letters arrived and the same for when you sent.
then it gets more and more, you need to send letters after or before a certain time, you start getting parcels to send and recieve, also it changes so you dont just post your letters and you need to start going into the post office and post it at the counter, again at certain times.
i liked it to begin with, getting stamps each month was good as i would collect them up then sell them on ebay in bulk but it soon becomes a chore and i gave it up, the free stamps didnt compensate for the time you spend sorting your post and booking in your deliveries...
good if you are retired??:p
I'm one of the biggest scrimpers and money savers around, I did this before, never again. Total nightmare having to re package and label stuff, taking envelopes to the post office, then logging on to say its been posted. The time and effort isn't worth it, when you work out the distance travelled to the post office - 45p a mile. Your not gaining much at all.
When I did it, it started off OK, I'd get a couple of letters a week and send off a few, and perhaps a parcel. Then they wanted the letters sent at specific times from a named post office, and that got harder and harder. At the beginning it was just to post it in the morning from my closest post office, then it was post it at 10:27 at the third counter from the left (super tricky to time the queue right!) at a post office four miles away. It got worse and worse, post a red and yellow striped envelope using a frisbee toss through the slot while standing on one leg at least 3m away from a post box in Nottingham at 1:59pm (I live in London!), and culminated in one day when I had to post a postcard of an otter in a trilby driving a car while yodelling (which I had to source and then buy at my own expense!) from a post box in Brae in the Shetlands at 9:17am and then an actual Golden Ticket prop from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory film (which I also had to find at my own expense) at a post box half way up a desolate track on St. Mary's in the Scilly Isles at 4:26pm the same day! Plus they never reimburse travel costs, and it was a real struggle to keep up with the volumes once it got to four tipper trucks a day just reversing up and dumping the letters for the day on my lawn.

And the parcels! The destination address was always the same, but first it was just "mail these cubes," then it was "send a Ming vase" (and "make sure it arrives unbroken, or a puppy will die"), diamond necklaces, gold bullion and eventually an entire Airbus A380 in pink - all of which I had to find at very short notice and buy with my own coin!

Don't get me started on logging, why do they need everything carved into marble tablets with a hammer and chisel? And getting them to the company each month is quite onerous, they're heavy and being forced to deliver them in person with that silly song they make you do in that really embarrassing outfit - it just seemed a lot to ask. I do treasure the soap powder they give you as a reward, but it would be nice if it was in a container because otherwise it's a small handful and a lot of it gets lost on the way home.

So I do feel they ask a lot in return for £12 of free stamps a month and the chance of some extra £5 vouchers, and I'm really not sure I will do it again next year. On the positive side, who doesn't like stamps? And it does get me out of the house.

I was about to jump on this - then I realised that the last time I bought a stamp to send a letter was about the same time I last wrote a cheque (years ago). I can't imagine ever sending 16 a month. Good opportunity for those who do, though.
I signed up simply for Birthdays and Christmas time.. they dont go out of date so will save me a bomb when the time comes! X

So you have to spend your own money first to post all these items and then get reimbursed after in vouchers is that correct?
I wish we'd heard of this sooner. Just after buying over 120 first class stamps for our daughters wedding invitations.
Never heard anything, tried a while back

Yes about £4.00 a go and you get vouchers in advance and then get £2.00 extra in vouchers after sending the parcel
I've got a drawer full of stamps doing this for the last few years. It's fairly hassle free when you've got used to it, but the best part is the occasional and very easy side delivery reports which pay £5 love to shop each time. (Though I haven't won the daily comp in over three years.)
I'd recommend it to those who live near a post box and office.

That's right, but you get more (£2-3) in l2s vouchers than you spend on each item, and it's only occasionally on parcels not on everyday mail.

I did it for a while but in the end I found I could not always meet the dates / times/ and locations they wanted things posted. Okay if you are not working away from home during the day or retired I guess.

​I've been doing this for years and no, you do not pay up front. All "normal" items are supplied already stamped and the very few that have to be paid for at the Post Office are covered because you receive vouchers to cover the cost beforehand. You then receive additional vouchers after they have been posted. It takes a few minutes each day maximum and I have won the daily and weekly prizes loads of times. The additional daily survey is also good as you get paid for logging what you receive in the post each day.
Well, I've put my name down. Gotta be in it to win it.
Did someone say free? Entered cheers
Entered..... Worth a punt if FREE

quite time consuming.gave up in the end.
I have been doing this for 4 years and have just finished this years 6 month run. You will always get stamps every month in payment for doing the work but I only received 1 presentation pack of stamps this year. I have never won any prizes yet or the Golden SMART but it is worth a few minutes work every couple of days.
I've done this a couple of times for six months each time. I had to post stuff almost every day, although most things can just go in post box you do occasionally have to post stuff from post office out of your own pocket and just get love to shop vouchers in return (but at least you get a bit more in return that it costs to post). Also a pain having to go to sorting office just to collect parcels that won't fit in letter box.

I only won daily draw once.
Thanks just applied
Done this at a previous address and wasn't too much of an issue as i was selling lots of things on Ebay at the time so most days i was at the post office.

Totally forgot about it to be honest, and the last time i tried to sign up there was no spaces available. Looks like its the same again

Ditto, just finished too, and I only got the one presentation pack this year, so I just emailed them and they sent me another out no trouble.

​You need to take that up with them because I always get the payment up front.
not worth the hassle, after a month or so you will be expected to go to the post office every day to drop off packets / parcels etc

​That is really clever except I don't understand. Impressed though. ..I think.
Most I've ever in had many years is 6 items in a week, over 5 days, and that was exceptional. I'd say it averages 3 days a week of posting a few letters. I just do it on my dog walk, no faff really, just requires a bit of organisation.

They send me love to shop vouchers though so I have to pay to send the parcels so I'm out of pocket and instead have some vouchers that are valid for places I don't normally shop

​Look it's quite simple - as I posted earlier, I have been doing this for a long time and if anyone finds it too taxing to post a few things a week then they are probably incapable of using a computer and the Internet. As for the vouchers, well I never find it difficult to spend them on items I would normally spend hard cash on. Of course, you could always spend them on a treat such as wine or chocolate and just chill.
For me, it wasn't too bad when somebody was in to take collection of the parcels (about once or twice a month), but decided to not enrol this time round (I've been on it for 4 years with rest periods) as couldn't be bothered with the hassle of going to the delivery office to pick up a cube.

It's certainly worth it if you're in the house and you've got a Post Box and PO nearby but I find how 'easy' it is does differ from person to person and how busy you are.

The unaddressed mail and correctly delivered surveys that you can sign up to when you're part of the panel are well worth it though, easy way to stock up on Love2Shop vouchers for Christmas.

Also, I must add - 4 years on and off and I didn't win any of the prize draws! No luck at all!

I have been doing this for years, never find too much of a hassle...Enter whatever post I have received and whatever needs to be sent, just once a week.
It is even better for me now as a post office opened up just 2 minutes walk from me...
Never won any of the prize draws as yet, saved up my Love 2 vouchers to buy a BBQ from Argos in their sale
I was going to sign up but apparently my postcode doesn't exist....
My postcode was not being used!
The vouchers and stamps sell for near face value on eBay. You lose a bit in fees and postage of course but if you're not gonna use them it's a good option.
Also stamps increase in value every year so of you're like me and end up accidentally sitting on things for years because you forget/are a bit lazy then it's in your favour.
I used to do this up until two years ago. I've got loads of stamp and I use about two a year.

​um don't you use the stamps for postage?
I've been doing it for a few years with rest periods like a few others. Sometimes it's a bit of a pain but I tend to post what I can when I can, and if I can't do it on the right day or before a certain time, I just do it as close to it as I can and log it accurately. There have been times when I've not been able to go to the post office to post cubes etc and I've just not logged it. They've still sent me the rewards.
