Freebie Friday

It's Black Friday today, when the internet is awash with lightening deals, offering huge discounts for a lucky few shoppers. It's worth checking out our story on Black Friday for some of the best deals around.

And if keeping up with the bargains wipes your finances out for the month, we are here to rescue your weekend - with an all-freebies Freebie Friday.


Free magazine

The users of Hotukdeals.com have come across a freebie to celebrate the launch of Google Play Newsstands. There are a number of discounted magazines - including some that are completely free. You don't have to subscribe in order to take advantage - you can just buy one free magazine. Magazines in the deal include Elle, Red, Runner's World, Country Living, Total Film and T3.

Free Costa coffee

Topcashback is offering everyone who uses its mobile app a free small coffee from Costa. You'll need to buy the coffee and get a receipt, then use the app to get your money back. This means clicking on the 'in-store' cashback page, selecting 'snap and save', finding the Costa deal, then taking a picture of your receipt and sending it via the app. You'll get the money back in your bank account within seven days. The deal runs until 4 December - or until 900 people have taken advantage of it.

Free message from Santa

This is one we've mentioned before, but it's really very clever. You just enter your child's name and a few things about them and you'll get a tailor-made video emailed to you. You can choose whether Santa will tell your child they have been nice - in which case they will get presents, or whether they have to try a little harder to earn their presents.

Free winter cosmetics kit

Clarins are offering a free 'winter must have kit' with over £20 on orders over £45 through vouchercloud. You just enter the code at the checkout to take advantage of the deal. However, if you were planning to spend more, you can get an even bigger freebie direct from Clarins. For those who spend over £60, you can get a free vanity case with four travel-size products (worth up to £47). You get to choose your own products too.

Free whisky personalisation

If you have a whisky lover in your life, then you can make giving them a bottle of whisky a bit more personal. On the website, you can personalise a Famous Grouse label and add a message and they'll print a label and send it to you. This is only supposed to be for people who have bought a bottle already, so you can either buy one or enter the barcode published on hotukdeals.com.
