Envelopes with cash in being handed out across UK for Blue Monday today


A company is handing out cash in envelopes across the UK today in an aim to bring a bit of happiness to people on Blue Monday.

Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January claimed to be the most depressing day of the year – so Quidco.com is giving away £10,000 to cheer up passers-by.

The catch? You'll have to be fast as the giveaway is only happening for one hour at 10 different locations across the UK.


The cashback team will be handing out envelopes with either £5, £10, £20 or £50 in cash in city centres and train stations – while some random envelopes will also contain scratch cards.

Chris Hutchings, CMO at Quidco, said: "We want to celebrate our members on one of the most dreaded days of the year by shining a bit of light on the UK doing what we do best – giving away cash!"


The Quidco giveaway is happening at the below locations, during these times:

Sheffield train station – 8am to 9am
Manchester city centre – 12pm to 1pm
Cambridge city centre – 12pm to 1pm
Peterborough train station – 5pm to 6pm
Colchester town centre – 12pm to 1pm
Chelmsford town centre – 5pm to 6pm
Bournemouth town centre – 12pm to 1pm
Basingstoke town train station – 5pm to 6pm
York city centre – 12pm to 1pm
Leeds train station – 5pm to 6pm

It doesn't specifically say where the Manchester location will be, so we'd suggest keeping an eye on Quidco's social accounts, which we imagine will be active during the giveaway.

The giveaway will take place between 8am and 6pm across the UK, while Manchester's will take place between 12pm and 1pm – you can find out more on the Quidco website here.
