I can’t believe how quickly we entered February and before I knew it the month was over! I find this especially impressive considering in the UK the whole of February has been spent in lockdown with the days sort of blurring into one. Without further a due below are the list of freebies I’ve been able to pick up this month.
4 Litres of Plant Based Milk – Jord Organic Oat Milk and Mighty Pea Milks. I managed to get these for free via using the app Green Jinn which gives you cashback on supermarket purchases. These were 100% cashback so I received the amount I paid for them back in my PayPal account within a few days by uploading my receipt as proof of purchase. As I don’t eat dairy this was a brilliant acquisition and kept me going for 4+ weeks.
Rubicon 1 litre drink – this was my second bottle of this for free via the app Shopmium which works very similarly to Green Jinn. The referral code “g2ye4k” will earn you a free tube of Pringles if you decide to download the Shopmium app.
2 x boxes of Plantastic flapjacks – Again this was via the app Shopmium. The boxes were on offer at “try for £1”. Earlier in the month they ran a promotion which I took part in and gained £2 credit which when added to the flapjack offer made them free. I’ve previously tried these via Checkout Smart and really liked them. It always makes me happy when cashback apps include dairy free options as they’re never particularly cheap.
1 x 90g bag of Sweet Popcorn – via Checkout Smart in Tesco

Sure Deodorant Travel Mini – sponsored Facebook advert. This came in really handy as mine suddenly ran out and I hadn’t got a replacement bargain lined up!
Versace Dylan Blue perfume – Boots sampling
Alien Mugler perfume sample – sponsored Facebook advert. I was a little disappointed that this was such a small sample.
Lancome Genefique Serum / Eye sachet – via the Lancome website. These serum samples are worth around £12 so I tend to save them for a relative who loves high end beauty and pop them into any gifts for them.
Valentino Homme Aftershave sample – via a sponsored Facebook advert. I’m saving up aftershave samples as I don’t tend to get very many and will be gifting them to a friend for their birthday in a couple of months’ time.
Lancome Idole Mascara sample – on the Lancome website earlier in the month there was a quick game that you could play and winners won a sample of their mascara. Luckily the game was very easy and quick!
Kleenex Anti Bacterial Hand Gel – this came via Send Me A Sample and arrived very quickly. Given the current pandemic sanitiser is always handy!
YSL Black Opium perfume sample – via Boots sampling. I received an email inviting me to fill out a form to try this perfume.
All told I’ve impressed myself with the amount of samples I picked up this month. I’m always so pleased I came across the supermarket cashback apps as they help me to save money on my weekly food shop and are great opportunities to try something new. Finding them also adds a bit of excitement in lockdown!
