People will be handing out envelopes of cash in York on Monday – and there’s no catch.

UK form Quidco is giving away a total of £10K in ten cities, and York is one of them.

It’s to cheer us up on so-called ‘Blue Monday’ (20 January), said by some to be the most depressing day of the year.


A spokesperson for Quidco said:

  • On Monday 20th January we’ll be visiting 10 towns and cities up and down the country with a share of £10k, in cash, to give out to passers-by. Yes, you read that right; members of the Quidco team will be standing on some of the UK’s streets handing out envelopes full of cash.

    What’s the catch? Well there isn’t one. Just grab an envelope as you walk past. Some envelopes contain a fiver, some £10, some £20, and some £50. There’s also a couple of scratch cards in there too, so you could win big. Not a bad way to start the week!

There are two rules – only one envelope per person and only available to persons aged 18 and over.

They start the giveaway in Sheffield at 8am and arrive in York city centre, including Stonegate, between 12pm and 1pm.

Quidco is a UK cashback service, which helps members get cashback on everything they buy online with the help of the Quidco app and website.
