How to Get Free Stuff Online
Everybody loves free things, even things you do not need. As for us at Frugalot, we are no different and also love ways to get free things online. However, finding the best way to get free things is hard and many companies are rather quiet about how you can do that. What we really need is a guide that can take us through all the potential options to bring us the free things we love and cherish.
Just read below and find out some ways that you can enjoy some free things as well.
If you enjoy looking after your skin and having all the latest beauty products, then this one is definitely the one for you.
Glamour Beauty Club is a website that you can sign up for that will end you free customised beauty product samples at regular intervals. When you first sign up the website will ask you for your skin type, personal preference and other important details- this allows the algorithm to find the best samples to send to you. Once they send you the samples, you will be emailed with a questionnaire and you will be asked to answer a few questions about how you liked the products and whether you would recommend them- although, this is not mandatory.
You will carry on getting these free samples for as long as you want, and frankly, who would stop because the brands that you have access to in these samples are high end and brands that for many people are out of their price zone. But for those who would like to, you can easily unsubscribe if you want.
Everybody loves free food and getting free food is possible the most important of them all- really it deserves number one on our list. Anyway, here are some of the best apps you can download to bag yourself some free food courtesy of Frugalalot.
O2 Priority is an app that can, sadly, only be utilised by O2 or 3 customer. But, if you fall into that category, then you are in for a world of free things, including all types of food at mainstream restaurants. All you would need to do is to go to the relevant restaurant and show them the offer. Note that the offer may come with terms and conditions like you may need to spend over a certain amount or it may only be valid for a certain time.
Wuntu is another, similar app that will give you similar benefits to O2 Priority but you do not have to an O2 or 3 customer. Terms and conditions may also apply on this app so you would have to watch for those as well.
Another thing you can take advantage of are birthdays. Some restaurants may give you a free pudding or food item if you say it is your birthday. Just do not try this trick on the same place twice in one year- unless you have a disguise.
Everyone likes looking after their home- even students who live in squalor. Therefore, why not make the most of free household goodies that you can get your hands on via the kindness of P&G. The website itself is called SuperSavyMe and is almost famed on the internet for giving out free cleaning products and free body care samples. Students, please take note.
However, alongside this SuperSavyMe also do coupons for a huge variety of products including cleaning and washing products. They are often coupons for money off if companies such as Fairy and Lenor- companies owned by P&G. For example, one such offer might be money off of a cleaning product- note that these coupons can be combined with an offer from a supermarket and multiple coupons can be combined. This could lead to a situation where you can get multiple products for absolutely nothing- that is even more free stuff.
The best way to make use of this offer is to match them with pre-existing deals such as discounts from other platforms and offers made by supermarkets instore- then you can really maximise those deals.
Here are Frugalalot, we find that the vast majority of our readers are students. That is why we have included UniDays in this list so you and your friends can take advantage of this app while you’re at university.
UniDays is an app that can be downloaded onto your phone that will give you access to millions of discount codes for all kinds of shops. And, all you need to do to access this app is to sign in using your name, school or university email address and the university and course you attend. Once you have done that, you have access to all kinds of discount codes and free things.
You might expect that the kind of brands that are offering these discounts are small and need the business, and the kind of discounts you can expect to have are small and not really worth it. However, you would be wrong and you can find generous discounts from brands such as Nike, Adidas and even Canon cameras. The level of discounts you can find on the app can range anywhere from 10% to 30% and up- the kind of discounts that you will not find advertised anywhere else.
The app is split up into loads of different sections so it is easy to find what you want and there is also a search feature so you can find exactly what you are looking for.
This is the ultimate way to get free stuff for students and if you need to buy anything for university or while you are at university then make sure you check this app out first.
This may seem too good to be true, however, if you know where to look then you can find a wide range of free homeware online. The source of such excitement is online marketplaces such as eBay, Facebook Marketplace and Gumtree. Often times these platforms will have a “free to take away” section where you can find free things that will only cost the amount of petrol it takes to drive there- often times if they are further away, a seller can meet you in the middle to make things easier.
Using these sites is always worth it as you can find some real steals on them that people simply want gone. You may also find items that just need a little wash or a small spare part replaced to make them good as new. Another strategy you could make use of is finding free items and flipping them for profit. Often times the reasons why people give away free things is that they cannot take it to a refuse site and they do not want to move it themselves- why not save them the effort and take it away for them and make a little bit of money on the side.
6. Make Use of Free Trials
Almost every subscription service on the internet will use free trials to lure in new customers. Often times these free subscriptions carry with them a huge number of benefits and things that you can use to get some free things. Although, you will have to be careful with these because if you forget about them then you may end up paying for the subscription even if you do not want to.
All you need to do is this, find the subscription you want- you may want to do some prior research so you know what you are going to get in your free subscription, it is only useful if you actually want to use the features. Now, go to the company website and look for the free trial. Note that it may be hard to find so you may need to do some diffing to find it. Once you have found it, all you need is to plug in some personal information like a username and passcode. For the rest of the month you will have access to all the juicy features.
7. Use Your Rewards
If you are a part of a credit card reward scheme or are a part of any kind of loyalty scheme, then make sure that you use your rewards to get some free stuff. Anyone from credit card providers to small coffee shops will run loyalty and reward schemes and if you go to a business or make use of a service often then you should definitely look for. If you are unsure that a business or credit card does a rewards scheme, then you should always check to see if there is one and try and bag yourself some free things.
