I have spoken of my unashamed love for free gifts before; I am always drawn towards anything that seems like a good offer, regardless of how many tokens, multi-buys and forms I have to go through to get it.
When I spotted this magazine yesterday, I knew instantly it had to be mine, for the free gift attached more than outweighed the 99p asking price. I have in fact no intention of buying any further issues regularly priced at £3.99. I will go on to use these supplies in my craft kit and the magazine itself will be lovingly read and recycled.
Over the years I have always been fascinated by and gone a little crazy for freebies, you know I was the kid at school who collected all the Tazos, pen toppers and various other bits of glorified tat. I ate my way through dozens of bowls of cereal in hope that we would soon get through another box and I would then in turn retrieve another Puppy in My Pocket.
As an adult (you would think anyway) competition for obtaining free gifts is tough, we are all as wise as each other and so are the companies. There will most likely be some sort of annoying snag or inconvenience attached, so it’s always best checking all the terms and conditions out first.
That said me, the Mr and Jasper between us scored a handful of freebies in 2011. Here are my favourites:
Meerkat freebie with insurance through Compare the Market
Felix treat jar freebie with World of Felix tokens
Polar Bear freebie with Birds Eye fish fingers tokens
Yorkshire Tea caddy freebie with purchase of Yorkshire Tea
Lindt key rings freebie with purchase of Lindt bears
Like anything, if you go looking for a freebie, you might just find one if you’re lucky enough! ;)
