At the end of every month I write up all the freebies I claimed that month as well as where and how I got them. I tend to post them as they arrive over on my Instagram. I’ve written several previous blog posts on how to get beauty freebies, my main tips can be found here.
La Mer The Concentrate 5ml – I got this by following La Mer using my Pinterest account the sponsored advert then popped up in my feed for me to apply to. This was the first freebie I’ve ever found via Pinterest! I tend to find with sponsored adverts it helps if you “like” or “follow” the brands social media accounts, interact with a few posts, then refresh your feed and see if this works. Not all always appear, sometimes visiting the website and allowing cookies can help too.
Allinsons Wholemeal Loaf of Bread – I used Shopmium to get this for free. I bought the exact item listed on the app from the store it specified, uploaded my receipt and scanned the barcode item to be given cashback which arrived in my PayPal 2 days later. The affiliate code g2ye4k will earn you a free tube of Pringles if you download the app and add the referral.
Lego – I was given these at a Lego store as an apology for the waiting times to get in. I honestly waited around 5 mins so was really pleasantly surprised with the free key ring and mini pack of Lego.
McVities V.I.B Biscuits – I used Shopmium to get this for free, I bought the item listed in the app and then requested cashback.
Toffifee – Again a freebie from Shopmium, I sent in a cashback request and received the full amount back via PayPal. I plan to add both the biscuits and these sweets to Christmas hampers as both products have long dates on well into 2021 and I’m currently trying to avoid dairy and excessive sugar.
Nars Climax Mascara x 2 – I filled in a sponsored advert on Facebook to receive this and used Send Me A Sample to receive another. I love mascara freebies, they’re one of my favourites as they save me lots of money. Despite being very frugal I love a good designer mascara so always claim freebies like this whenever I can to save me having to buy one. I’ve now claimed 4 high brand mascaras this year.
Paco Rabanne 1 Million Perfume from a sponsored Facebook advert
Lancome Idole Intense Perfume from a sponsored Facebook advert.
Ted Baker 50ml Body Spray – I paid £1.56 for this but received 200 Boots points worth £2 because I loaded an offer from the Boots app. This will also be put away for Christmas gifts.
Lancome Advanced Genefique 7ml sample + Renergie Multi Lift Ultra – from a sponsored advert found on Pinterest which I believe is still floating about. If you interact with Lancome’s account it should hopefully pop up. I’ll be adding these to a Christmas gift for a relative who loves this brand.
YSL Libre Perfume Sample – again from a sponsored advert
Dior Perfume Samples x 2 – also from a sponsored advert found on Facebook.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules – from a sponsored Facebook post. It’s a really generous sample size with 7 capsules in a bottle.
Freebies With Purchase
Dare Magazine – I paid £3 for this and received beauty freebies worth up to £13.90. Some of these will again be added to Christmas gifts like the Revolution primer which is worth £8. I rarely buy magazines so am pleased to have this one to read as a nice treat and the freebies will help me keep present costs down.
I feel as though I applied for lots of freebies this month but delivery was very slow so I am hoping items turn up next month!
