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

Freebie Friday

This week's freebies range from the sensible to the downright bizarre. But from chocolate oranges to Scotch eggs, and free entry to a very pricey attraction, there's a festive twist to them all.

So how can you get your hands on these freebie?


Free entry to The View from The Shard

This is a huge saving, given that the cheapest ticket is usually £24.95. All you have to do to secure your freebie is to go along between 10am–1pm on Sunday 15 December. Oh and you have to be wearing a full Santa suit to qualify. It should make for an entertaining sight as well as an incredible view. There's only one potential drawback: the number of Santas that will be allowed up the tower is strictly limited, so if you don't get there early enough there's a chance you'll be trekking to central London in a Santa suit for no reason.

Free Jamie Oliver Magazine

If your festive food preparations are a bit lacklustre, then why not call on Jamie Oliver for bit of help? The users of hotukdeals.com have found an offer for a free issue of Jamie's magazine. You need to fill in your details here, the team will then call you, and you'll then get the next available issue posted out to you. It's that simple. The users of hotukdeals.com point out that the person who calls will try to persuade you to take out a subscription, but if you sit tight and say no, you'll still get your freebie.

Free chocolate orange

It's another one of those O2 priority moments, but it's a corker. On Christmas Eve you can get your freebie from WHSmiths - which is a nice reward for anyone who managed to make it to the high street and back in one piece. It definitely makes it worth the hassle of ordering a free 'Pay & Go Go Go' sim card, then popping it in your phone and firing up the app.

Free Scotch egg

In a fairly unusual move, Bargain Booze is offering a free Scotch egg on Christmas Eve with every alcohol purchase. The users of hotukdeals.com have published the advert for this deal too - which is a nice take on a 1980s favourite.

Free Kilner jar of Christmas coffee or tea

Whittard of Chelsea is offering a free Christmas kilner jar and free delivery if you spend £35 in the Christmas shop. The deal is available through vouchercodespro and expires on Monday. The Christmas shop has tea, coffee, and festive sweets and chocolates, so you don't need to order a sack of tea to qualify (unless you really want to).
