There are plenty of ways to celebrate the onset of autumn this weekend without spending anything. There's a free pumpkin for your Halloween celebrations, a free breakfast to celebrate the clocks going back, vitamins to boost Vitamin D when the sun goes in, and even a free coat hook strong enough to handle your warmest of coats.
To get you in the Halloween spirit, you can get hold of a freebie pumpkin from Tesco, Asda, Morrison's, Sainsbury's or Waitrose through topcashback.co.uk. You'll need the mobile app to take advantage, so you'll need to download it first. Then you have to buy the pumpkin, sign into the app, click on 'in store' cashback, then click the 'snap and save' icon. You can then take a photo of your receipt, upload it, and within 30 days the cash will be back in your account. The deal is valid from 11am today until midnight on Halloween - or until 5,000 have been redeemed.

They're raspberry flavour too, so it shouldn't be too tricky to get the kids to take them.
