I’m going to share with you my 6 favourite ways to consistently get free stuff without surveys (UK) and a summarised list of the freebies I’ve received in 2018.
If you follow me on Instagram (@studentskint), you’ll see on my stories that I regularly pick up freebies, sometimes everyday but at least every week – I even have a ‘freebies’ highlight, they are that easy to get!
I love surveys, especially this survey site but sometimes you want to get freebies straight away without having to answer loads of questions or complete tasks for money. Here’s just the interesting stuff on my long list of free stuff I’ve received in 2018 without surveys:
- Domino’s 7″ personal pizza (x6)
- Costa, Caffè Nero or Patisserie Valerie hot drink (x7)
- Beer, wine, lager (over 12 litres in total)
- Soft drinks (over 6 litres in total)
- Supermarket groceries/household items (over £100 worth)
- Confectionary (Thorntons chocolates, sweets, chocolate bars)
- Subscription boxes (Graze, Chewy Moon, Tribe, Organix)
- Cinema screenings for 2 people (x5)
- So much more!
As you can see from the list above, it’s very possible to get free stuff without surveys in the UK. I’ve received hundreds of pounds worth of freebies in just 2018 alone so I can’t wait to see what I can get in 2019!
How to get free stuff without surveys (UK)
1. Shopping cashback apps and Wuntu
Featured in my how to get free food blog post I use apps such as:
- Shopmium (click here to get free Nutella when you sign up)
2. Latest Deals
Latest Deals is a website that shares the latest daily deals. They’ve asked me to share the freebies page with you www.latestdeals.co.uk/freebies so you can visit the page to see what’s being given away for free.
The thing that sets Latest Deals freebies apart from other deals and freebies websites is that they are ‘genuine freebies shared by real people’. It’s a community of people sharing freebies and great deals with one another. You can create an account and share the freebies you come across.
People collate all the freebies from several websites and apps, so it’s all in one place. It would take you all day to check every app and website that are offering freebies, so that’s why I let Latest Deals do the work for me!
Not many people in my area use OLIO and that might be the case with where you live too, but check the app regularly and some real gems will pop up.
4. Send Me A Sample UK
SMAS sends you samples in the post via voice assistant – sign up here. You must have a voice assistant device (Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant) and say ‘Ask Send Me A Sample for a …’
I’ve included VoucherCodes so many times on my blog, because I love it! There’s hundreds, if not thousands of discount codes and deals on this wonderful app.
I’m including it in this freebies list because you’ll often find buy one get one free meals on there.
Keep an eye out on VoucherCodes because sometimes you get amazing cashback deals too, such as spending £50 on Amazon and getting a £5 Amazon gift card!
6. Just ask
You’d be surprised how many shops give out free tasters or product samples. Just ask (politely of course) if you can have a sample to taste or take home. A lot of us British people can be quite tight lipped and don’t like to ask for freebies but if I can get free stuff quickly without doing surveys or doing any ‘hard work’ then I certainly will.
High end beauty stores, concessions in department stores, Lush and some confectionery stores are known for giving out free samples, you can take home or try so many different things:
- Skincare products
- Hair products
- Ice cream
Do you use any of these methods to pick up freebies? Or have I shared something new with you that you’ll be implementing in 2019? Let me know below!
