Freebie Friday: this week's discounts, deals and freebies

Freebie Friday

In the final week before Christmas it's all about last-minute delivery, using enough wrapping paper to cover the Eiffel Tower, and eating and drinking until we burst.

We have freebies to help you with every aspect of your last-minute preparations.... and a couple of 50% discounts to help keep your energy up throughout.

Free wrapping paper

It's another O2 priority moments deal, so you'll need an O2 SIM and the app in order to qualify. However, once you're armed with those you can get free wrapping paper at WH Smith. Users of have reported mixed experiences. Some have been told the roll cannot cost more than £3.49, others have bought luxury rolls costing £4.50, and some have even bought multipacks of wraps - which should cover most things this Christmas.

Free drink

To get your celebrations started, you can get a free drink from Marstons Inns and Taverns when you sign up for their newsletter. It's valid for a free pint, glass of wine or a soft drink, and you don't need to buy anything else in order to qualify.

Free month of Amazon Prime

The Amazon Prime delivery deal offers free one-day delivery (with no minimum order size) - along with the ability to borrow Kindle best-selling books with no due dates for return. It's a nice extra but for most people the usual cost of £49 a year means it's just not worth it. However, at the moment it is offering a one month free trial when you sign up here. The only word of warning is that when the month is over you'll automatically be billed for a year, so after signing up you'll need to go into your account and turn off automatic renewal.

Free breakfast

If you're hitting the high street this weekend you'll need to build your strength before you start. You could try a breakfast from Cafe Rouge, and as long as you print out a voucher, when you buy one breakfast you'll get another one free. The offer is available until noon each day, so if you're keen to be first into the shops, you could get the lot done in the morning, and reward yourself with brunch.

Half price pizza

If you're worn to a frazzle by Christmas preparations, then the temptation to order a takeaway can be too much to resist. has a code at the moment for 50% off any Pizza Hut takeaway over £35. You just order online and enter the code AF111P, and you'll get the discount. The code is valid until the end of Sunday.
