Competition: Win five guineas (£107) for your best referral story



To celebrate the 60th birthday of Pulse, we are running a competition from the first issue of Pulse. We offered five guineas for the best entry, two guineas for second place and one for third place.

So we will offer the same again. Converting that to today’s money, the prize is £107 of John Lewis vouchers to the winner, £42.80 vouchers to second place and £21.40 vouchers to third place. Send your entries to editor@pulsetoday.co.uk. Closing date: 19 March 2020.
