How to Get Something for Nothing - Your Go-To Guide for Freebies & Competitions

* Sponsored post  

Getting something for nothing is one of those wonderful little delights in life, isn’t it?! Everyone loves a freebie and the great thing is that free stuff really does exist! The question is; how do you get your paws on it? In this guide, I will show you how to get yourself as much free stuff as you could possibly want.


People Are Giving Things Away For the Takings

You may not yet know about this idea yet, but there are sites where people are giving away their old things, giving you a chance to get some free stuff. There are a number of advertisements for these freebies. Freecycle and Freegle are a few websites that provide loads of items that are quite literally free for the takings.

Here is how it works; The owner posts their items and then someone who wants them will contact the owner and organise to collect what they want. You need to make sure you sign up with them first and that's about all there is to it, you get yourself things for free in a jiffy! You will be supposed at the incredible stuff that is going for free on these types of sites, even bikes and pianos can be listed as free for collection!

Your uni's notice board is another place where free stuff may be advertised. People who are packing up flats after graduation may advertise desks and other furniture that is no longer needed. Often there is no fee,  so long as you come to collect the items that you want.


Be Available To Test Products

Feedback is something that companies are always looking for when it comes to their products. Sending out samples and getting peoples' opinions is one way that they acquire this feedback. Click Research and i-Say are two sites that will send out products for free if you are willing to test them. This lets you get yourself brand products for free. Both sites have online surveys that you can take and then you can use the points to redeem as cash or as Amazon vouchers, depending on the site that you have signed up to.


Enter Competitions

This can end up as a pretty lucrative job once you know where to enter. A lot of people have got themself a freebie by entering a competition at one time or another. In fact, it seems some people do this as their living! There are a few tricks that will help you to get prizes, one thing is to check online and try to enter competitions that have fewer entrants. Check your favourite magazines for competitions that are only online. There is also the option of TV channels' websites. 

Or you could use the Mega FreeStuff website which provides a list of online competitions that you do not need to pay to enter. Your chances of winning tend to go up when competing requires you to do more to enter, this is because a lot of people may be put off by such efforts. Of course, stay cautious as there are plenty of scams out there too, so keep your personal information safe and never provide bank details. They are currently running a free competition where you can win 1 of 20 Easter Eggs.


Enjoy Free Food and Drinks

Bars, shops, and restaurants are all options for getting free food and drink. Register online with your favorite restaurants as many of them will periodically offer freebies, they may also offer you a freebie on your birthday.TGI Friday is one example, they will offer you a free dessert or a cocktail when it is your birthday. Krispy Kreme is another example, they will give you a free doughnut on your birthday, so long as you sign up to their website. They also offer other freebies depending on what you are purchasing at the time.

A lot of high street coffee shops offer loyalty cards. this is very well worthwhile as they quickly add up and entitle you to free drinks or food (Costa's Coffee Club is one example of this).


Get Yourself Some Free Books

For readers who enjoy using a mobile device for their book time, there is good news! Lots of books can be downloaded for free online. If you have a Kindle you will find plenty of free boos to download, even some contemporary novels or those timeless classics. You may even be able to get course reading material for free! Another good place to check for access to countless free books is Project Gutenberg, on this site you are even given the choice to read the books online if you wish.
