Freebie Friday: your ticket to this week's best freebies


Fresh donuts on nature background.

There's an opportunity to indulge your inner child with this week's freebies. We've found a free cuddly cow on offer, plus free sweets, and a free birthday treat. For those who are after a more sophisticated freebie we have glamorous nail varnish, and a free card offering discounts to a range of places including fancy restaurants.

And after you've indulged, there's a free tennis session to help you burn it off too.

Free cuddly cow

Cow and Gate are offering a free soft toy cow to anyone who joins the C&G baby club. It's meant for mothers who are less than 30 weeks pregnant - and you'll get a pregnancy diary too. However, as the community points out, you can enter the right due date and receive the gift if you're not worried about bending the truth.

Free tennis sessions

The Lawn Tennis Association's first Great British Tennis Weekend of the year will run from 17th-18th May - although there are also weekends on 21th-22nd June and 28th-29th July. You can get free tennis sessions at clubs all over the country, so it's worth visiting the website and finding a session running near you.

Free Starburst

The users of have discovered you can get a free packet of Starburst FaveREDs. You can create a short video if that sort of thing appeals, and share it through social media, or you can skip straight to the bit where you input your details and get a voucher emailed to you for a free packet of sweets.

Free cake

You can sign up to get a voucher for a free cake, doughnut or pastry on your birthday from Greggs. You'll need to join Greggs Rewards, which is a payment card you pre-load with funds and use to spend in Greggs. If you want to use the card, there are extra bonuses, such as a free breakfast when you get a card and load £20 onto it, and a free coffee when you have bought seven. However, you don't have to load the card or use it to be signed up for a birthday treat, and on your birthday you'll be sent a voucher for your free cake.

Free Tastecard

The moneysavingexpert site has set up a competition with Tastecard. Every entrant will get a card for free, which lasts for two months and will give you a range of discounts in various restaurants ranging from chains like Strada to posh London restaurants like Quaglinos. It also provides 2-for-1 deals on a number of attractions, up to 70% off some hotels, and theatre music and cinema discounts too. In addition, 2,000 entrants will be upgraded to a card which lasts for a year.

Free nail varnish

If you buy a copy of InStyle magazine this month (for £3.90) you'll get a free Nails Inc polish. They come in three shades: coral, grey and pink, and usually retail at £11. So even if you buy the magazine and throw it away you're still getting good discount.
