We believe opportunities start on Gumtree. From buying and selling old baby bits, to furnishing your new flat, finding that perfect summer job or a sleek upgrade on your old motor.

We want to hear your stories.

Tell us how you #GotItOnGumtree for your chance to win a prize worth £500, tailored to you and your story.

If you’re the lucky winner, we could get you on that plane to the foreign country whose language you’ve been practising, help you pay for some new sports or music equipment to take your hobby to the next level or help fund the renovation of your first own home if you’re an upcycling lover. We customise the prize to your winning story.

Got a great story about something you bought or sold on Gumtree? Is there something you’ve always wanted and found for an amazing price on our site? Did you discover a local fitness group or even your new flatmate/best mate?

Big or small, we’re here to celebrate the everyday.
