Very rarely is there an opportunity to get stuff for free, so if you do see a good deal what do you do? Go for it or let the opportunity pass? If you have a little time to spare, there are loads of things you could have for free including meals, holiday accommodation, money and many more. These offers are around us all the time but many do not take the time to read the offer properly and dismiss as a scam. Here are some of our favourite money saving freebies.
Free stuff for everyone
Free food – there are a few restaurants offering 2 for 1 meal deals and 50% off; all you need to do is print off the voucher from their website and present it when you go to eat. The restaurants participating are Cafe Rouge, La Tasca, Ask and Pizza Hut; these are just some to name a few. There are also many restaurants that let kids eat free with every paying adult so look out for those too. Another way to get a free meal is to write a short review of your dining experience in return for a voucher to eat in some of the best restaurants.
Loyalty cards – as many people stay clear of these for good reasons, loyalty cards such as Boots which offer four points for every one pound spent and Tesco clubcard which offer 100 points for every £1 spent and is redeemable in store. Tesco also allows you to exchange vouchers for meals out, days out, cinema tickets and even Open University payment. Nectar is also another loyalty card that really pays off with points collected from high street shops, Homebase, online, restaurants and even at petrol stations. Nectar card holders are able to spend points on holidays, fashion, beauty products and so much more.
Free wine – if you enjoy a glass or two, you can enjoy free wine tasting with Majestic; they run a 2 hour introductory course about the basics of wine and also host free wine tasting all over the country. Check out their website for more details and information on how you can be part of this free event.
Entertainment – there are free sites you can register on to get free tickets for the latest films and TV shows such as Britain’s Got Talent and QI. As they issue more tickets than they have seats you may have to queue but if you lose out don’t worry as you will usually get priority for another show. Tickets are on a first come first serve basis so get in there quick.
Exercise for free – under 16’s and over 60’s can currently swim for free until 2011; you will need a card that costs £2 but in return you can swim as often as you like. Anyone of any age can also get free tennis lessons with a charity called Tennis for free so if you have always wanted to try it, now’s your chance to try for free.
Holiday for free – there are some websites that allow you to register so you can get free house swapping, house sitting or offer a space for someone to stay for free. You can get free accommodation from places as close as Italy and as heavenly as Fiji. You will also be offering a place at your home but you don’t have to accept any offers.
What’s even better about all the free stuff is they are all really free, if anything what will be lost is the time it takes to register your details before savings can be made.
