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


Happy family sitting on sofa watching television

It's going to be a stormy weekend by all accounts, so it's time for some indoor pursuits. How about popping in for a free meal, followed by a free drink, then heading home to enjoy your free chocolate while watching a free film?

If you're the manicure type you can give yourself a free one of those while you're at it.

Free drink

Pitcher and Piano is offering a free pint of Red Stripe or a Sailor Jerry spiced mojito to anyone who signs up to its newsletter. The free drink can be taken any time in June. It's also worth pointing out that the pub chain offers a fee drink every month once you sign up to the newsletter - so it's a freebie that keeps on giving.

Free chocolate

You can get your hands on a free bag of Hotel Chocolat salted caramel puddles - through the O2 Priority Moments app. You have to have an O2 sim in order to take advantage of the deal, but as we've mentioned before, there are loads of freebies available using it, so it's worth getting your hands on a free pay-as-you-go sim so you can cash in on them. Once you have the app, you can pick up your freebies in store.

Free nail varnish

With July's edition of Marie Claire, they're offering a free mini manicure set (which is essentially a nail varnish and a pot of pearls that you stick onto the varnish before it dries). You can check out the available colours on the website to make sure you get one that suits you - they all have fancy names but there's a red, pink, purple, blue, lilac and nude. The magazine costs £2.50 and it says the freebie is worth £10 - which is worth getting if you're a nail varnish fan.

Free Father's day meal

Chiquito is offering a free two-course meal from the specials menu for all dads who book for 15 June - as long as you're also buying at least one main meal from the main menu, or another two-course meal from the specials. The restaurant also permanently runs something called the Chiquito Angels. It means that at any time an 'angel' could pop over to your table and tell you that your meal was on the house.

Free Amazon Prime Instant Video

This has been running for a while, but if you haven't taken advantage it's worth considering. You can sign up for 30 days of Amazon Prime for free. It's essentially a re-branded Lovefilm - a film and TV streaming service. It's worth noting that not all the titles are free, but there's still a decent range of freebies on offer. After the trial you will be charged £5.99 a month for the service, so if you don't to pay, make sure you go into your account and switch off the automatic renewal before your trial ends.
