Free beer and cider
To help you celebrate the FA cup this weekend, TopCashback is offering all new members £10 worth of beer or cider for free from any UK store. All you have to do is sign up to the website, spend £10 on beer or cider, then upload your receipt. It means you'll get a decent result on the day - regardless of who wins. The offer is valid until Sunday 3rd June.

Free ice cream
Nothing says 'Bank Holiday' like a free ice cream, and Magic Freebies has spotted a way to get your hands on a box of four Cornetto Classico - for free. You'll need to find someone who uses the Shopmium app, and ask them for their referral code. Then you need to download the free app and sign up using the code. Then you buy the ice creams, scan the receipt into the app, and you'll get 100% cashback straight into your bank account

Free cookie
Greggs offers regular freebies to its loyalty app users, and at the moment it is giving away free cookies. To qualify you just need to download the app, and the free cookie should appear. Then you need to show it to staff in your local Greggs and you'll get your freebie. Even if you don't fancy the cookie, it's worth signing up, because there are all sorts of freebies from time to time, and eventually something will appeal - even if it's just a free cup of tea.

Free kids' meals
The users of HotUKdeals.com have put together a brilliant thread of free kids' meals for half term. Among the offers are 'kids eat free' at Bella Italia and Las Iguanas. There are also freebies and huge discounts available everywhere from Frankie & Benny's to La Tasca. So wherever you fancy eating, it's worth checking this list to see if you can get a freebie.

Free cinema tickets
This is a fantastic deal, which essentially means you could be paid for going to the cinema. To help you keep the kids entertained this Bank Holiday and half term, Topcashback.co.uk is offering free cinema tickets to new users. All you have to do is sign up on the website then spend at least £5 on a ticket, and you'll get £10 cashback. The deal is valid until 9th July.
