Black Friday excitement is building, but while a massive sale is never a bad thing, it's hardly a patch on the opportunity to get something for nothing. We have some great freebies this week, all of which will help you get ready for Christmas and celebrate a bit harder - all for free.
Free Hotel Chocolat Advent Calendar
If you don't have your advent calendar year, then new members of Quidco can get a free one from Hotel Chocolat. Just sign up through this link and pick either the milk, dark, white or caramel one. The full £12.50 will be refunded to your account - so it won't cost you a penny.
Free Cadbury's selection box (plus get paid to eat chocolate)
If Christmas doesn't start until you open your selection box, then this freebie from Quidco could come in handy. Once you've signed up to Quidco, you can just buy your selection pack from Tesco, Sainsbury's , Asda or Morrisons, and upload your receipt to the website or the app. The £2 will then be refunded to your account. In fact, if you buy it at Tesco, then it's currently just £1 so you'll actually be paid to eat chocolate.
The users of HotUkdeals.com have spotted a brilliant freebie from MAC, which will get you a MAC classic lipstick (worth £15.50), in return for you handing in six empty MAC containers at your nearest MAC counter. The initiative is called back to MAC, and means it's well worth going through your old makeup to see if you can get your hands on a freebie.
Fresh egg noodles
Sainsbury's once again is the best supermarket for freebie fans, At the moment it's offering a pack of free fresh egg noodles (worth 80p) with your online shopping. Just add them to the basket, enter the code FREENOODLE at the checkout, and the price will be deducted from your total. It's also well worth checking the Sainsbury's site, because it has a handful of freebies at any one time, so you could get a few handy freebies each time you shop.
Free Father Christmas Letter at NSPCC
The community of bargain hunters at LatestDeals.co.uk has tracked down a nice freebie for kids. On the NSPCC website it lets you sign up for a free letter from Santa. You can pick from eight stories, and personalise the letter with your child's name and details about them. They say each letter costs £2.50 to design, print and send, so they ask for a £5 donation for every letter. It would be be a nice way to give to charity this Christmas, but the donation is not compulsory.
