Of course the weather is terrible - it is Wimbledon week after all. But while we dodge the rain showers and wonder why we wasted so much money on a summer wardrobe, we can also celebrate the fact that not everything that's wet brings misery and dreariness. We have five great freebies that offer the best of the wet stuff.
If you need warming and cheering up, then a cup of tea might do it. Freebie Supermarket has spotted that PG Tips is giving away 40,000 free samples of PG Tips Green Tea to anyone who registers their interest on their Facebook page.
Free styling products
The users of HotUKdeals.com have spotted that anyone on the O2 network, with the Priority App, can get their hands on some hair styling products from Boots for free - to help their hair withstand the weather. You can choose between a pot of VO5 Texture Rework Putty or a bottle of Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray. The deal runs until 7 July, but it's worth going sooner rather than later while stocks last.
Free water-saving devices
It might not feel like it, but saving water is considered such a high priority for water companies, that they will regularly fund water-saving devices. The users of HotUKdeals.com have spotted that at the moment, Wessex Water is giving away free water-saving products to its customers - from a water-saving shower head to a garden hose attachment to direct water more effectively. You just visit the website, select what you want, complete your details, and bag your freebies.
Ironically Miller and Carter steakhouses are promoting their free gin cocktails as being refreshing on a hot summer's day. However, the Cucumber and Elderflower Collins and The Bramble (or a softail alternative), would prove tasty even in the drizzle. The deal is open to anyone who signs up online and eats with the chain.
If you prefer your refreshing summery drinks in the comfort of your own home, then Topcashback is offering free Pimms and Lemonade to all new users until 10 July. You just sign up, buy the ready-made cans from your nearest supermarket, upload your receipt on the site or through the app, and get your money back. The cans are currently selling for £5 for four.
