Sometimes the world of freebies and discounts is less than practical. A voucher offering 70% off always sounds good, but when it's 70% off a spa treatment, is it really going to help your household budgeting? However, occasionally we have weeks when the freebies all reside down the other end of the usefulness spectrum - and companies are queuing up to give us really useful things for free. This is one of those weeks - where we have food freebies galore.

Free popcorn or crisps
The users of have discovered that anyone with the Greggs app has a free packet of crisps or popcorn sitting in their account. You just pick up your freebie in store and scan Greggs Rewards as normal. If you're not a member yet, you won't qualify for this particular freebie, but it's worth downloading the app anyway. You'll get a free 'welcome' hot drink (and a free cake on your birthday), and you'll be in line for a freebie during the next round of giveaways.

You then need to spend at least £25, and the £15 will go back into your account within seven working days. You need to be new to both Topcashback and Asda grocery deliveries online.
