    Not getting drawn into the discussion but just to confirm, my bank includes a partial postcode in emails.

    "
    Your partial postcode is ***
    We've included your postcode at the top so you can be sure this email is
    from *****. "

    So, some banks do include a partial postcode in their emails.

    Not sure I've ever had a bank email me to ask me to call them, or enter any details though, so if one where to arrive I'd probably be dubious about it anyway.

    It's generally just "We've updated our Terms" type emails

    No, all it needs is a postcode - doesn't have to be your home postcode. Mine's not my home one
    I've just joined, so does this mean that if my postcode comes up, I might have to share the prize with somebody who doesn't even live in my street?

    You can enter with any valid postcode. 
    The downside of more than one entry from the same postcode is if it is one of the prizes that is shared then everyone using that postcode and claims gets a share of the prize while some draws are whoever correctly claims first gets the prize and everyone else gets nothing. The upside is each entry goes in the draws so the more entries there are from the same post code the more chance there is of it being drawn as a potential winner.

    If you want to see if a postcode is already entered you can check here

    Yes, if someone else has used the same postcode regardless of where they live. There are apparently several people using PmP who are at Buckingham palace!

      you can earn pennies for referring people. Also the more people from your postcode who join the more likely you are to win a prize. 
    There are also flash draws for smaller amounts which are drawn at 9am and 9pm and if your postcode is drawn you get it if you claim first (so like a race)

    Recently won £100 that was paid within 24 hours - sadly as an alternative to PayPal they no longer offer Amazon vouchers.
