Freebies, Coupons & Comps
Welcome to my new follower Lynne.
I thought maybe at the end of every week I would do a post on any freebies I get in the week and also coupons and competition wins (if anyone is interested that is).
I am an avid freebie hunter, companies give away 1000's of free samples every week, after all it is a way of promoting their products.
This is just a small selection of things I have received over the last few months.
I only spend 10 mins or so daily checking a few freebie sites. Getting freebies helps save money.
Couponing is something I do occasionally, anyone seen the show Extreme Couponing? unfortunately in the UK it is not really a big thing, but there are coupons about if you do a bit of research, sometimes you can get things completely free.
Comping ( entering competitions) has been a hobby of mine for years, of course it is the luck of the draw, as us compers say you have to be in it to win it.
I haven't really spent much time on it this year but I have won the following:
Huge card making kit
Cast iron crepe pan
Fresh fish box
Royal mail stamp set
Sulpher (for growing veg)
6 various books
I shall be spending more time on this hobby now as I do enjoy it, and you never know what the postman is going to bring you.
I have won some really good prizes over the years, including luxury hampers, luxury skincare, jewellery, perfumes, holidays and mini breaks, a new cooker, and much more.
I still have more wins on the way, but I shall wait until I receive them before I show.
The internet is flooded with advent competitions at the moment, so I am busy with those daily. Fingers crossed, last year I won a turkey dinner, champagne, and a hamper all in time for Christmas.
I have had just a few things this week.
A couple of sachets of a supplement for joints.
These were from Checkout Smart app, you buy the product, upload your receipt and get paid by paypal back, this freebie has expired now.
This turned up today, it was a competition win.
I must just add I only do online competitions as they are free to enter.
