10 Freebie Apps and Websites!
Before getting married, I didn’t care how I spent my money. I would just buy anything I needed when I needed it, but after I got married I become more conscious. I realised that money doesn’t grow in trees and we must have a budget in order to “survive”.
I desperately want to own a house and it is almost impossible at the moment when only my husband works so that’s how my crazy journey towards saving money began. Of course I am not going to be able to save thousands but every little counts!
I’ll list my 10 favourite ways to get freebies and save money!
This will have to be my top favourite website. I have found a lot of freebies on this one since I subscribed to the newsletter. I just love it, there are so many things that you can take advantage of. I don’t click on everything they have obviously. You only choose what is relevant to you and what you think works best. I definitely recommend you subscribe to their newsletter to get notifications every time they add something new to the website!
Magic Freebies is pretty much like the previous one, but I subscribed to it as well just because sometimes it has different offers, and it’s worth checking. The more, the merrier!
Save the Student is a student finance website for money saving advice, for students of course. Totally relevant to me since I’m still at university, but even if you aren’t a student, I still recommend that you subscribe. It’s full of tips and advice on how to save money.
Also dedicated to students, Student Money Saver is great. If you are at university at the moment and register to the website, you have access to all of the exclusive deals too.
5. O2 Priority Moments
O2 Priority is exclusive to the O2 customers and has great offers from high street brands, tickets and experiences but you can still download the application without being with O2. Just order any free sim from O2, put the sim in your phone and download the app. When you open the application you will be asked to enter the O2 phone number and will receive a code. Enter the code and then you can go back to your usual network provider!
I enjoy my £1 lunch from Boots every Monday and the free items that I can get from Boots every 2 weeks. I also love the free hot chocolate every Tuesday at Cafe Nerro! This week, they allowed us to get an iced coffee from Cafe Nerro and that made me really happy because I am not a coffee lover and I would always get hot chocolate instead. But I love caramel frappuccino and I was really glad that I could get that for free. It saved me £3.50!
Just like the O2 Priority, Wuntu is exclusive to 3G customers only. They have awesome freebies like coffee from Costa, free cinema tickets, bake rolls from Greggs, or meals at restaurants for only £5 (bargain!), including many others.
7. CheckoutSmart App
This app gives you access to rewards from a lot of supermarket brands. You buy the products, take a picture of your receipt and receive cash back into your account. However, I alwasy wait for the money to add up to £20 before I transfer it into my bank account. Payments up to £19.99 incur a transfer fee of 5%.
Shopmium is very similar to Checkout Smart. You shop, send the receipt and get money back. What I love about this application is that as soon as they process the receipt, they send you the money into your bank account straight away so you don’t have to transfer it yourself or wait until you make a certain amount of money.
I have obviously downloaded all these apps on my husband’s phone but he never uses them. I do :)! Whenever I go shopping and I buy a product that qualifies for cashback, I will buy it twice and I will do all the receipt work at home. This way, I will have more products for free. In the last 2 weeks, I got loads of products for free thanks to the O2 Priority, CheckoutSmart and Shopmium!
This is a cashback website where you can save money when you shop at over 4400 retailers both online and in-store through this site. If you subscribe to the first website from this post – Latest Free Stuff, you will receive deals about TopCashback sometimes. They always have exclusive deals to new members only, so if you do register, do not purchase anything yet. Wait until you receive and email from the Latest Free Stuff, with a really good offer so that you can take full advantage of it.
For example, they had £10 Free to spend on Baby clothes at Asda George. You basically purchase something worth £10 or more and Topcashback will give you £10 back, but this is only for new members and they have different offers all the time.
Another cashback site and the same applies here. You can register but do not purchase anything until you take advantage of the good offers that they have for new members every now and then. At the time that I registered, they offered £10 cashback for a Hungry House purchase worth £10 or more. Of course I took advantage of it which means I got a free lunch :)!
