The Student Freebie Guide: Without Being Scammed

Hey guys!
Today I am going to share some ways of getting freebies as a student. I’m sure many of you would like to find out more about freebie apps and websites that are genuine and won’t scam or rip you off. Below is some tips about finding freebies in the UK, and a list of places to get them from.
Read the Small Print
Some freebies come with a catch. For some offers, you may need to buy something, which means it’s not free at all. Make sure you read the small print to see the terms and conditions to see what you’re getting.
Look for Reviews
Before you sign up, do research into the company or website. Check online comments and reviews. Don’t get hung up on one or two bad reports, however, if people don’t have anything good to say, there may be a good reason for it.
Don’t Give Payment Information
Be careful when giving out your credit card details to websites and apps. Make sure to check reviews first before signing up to any freebie websites and apps, and don’t hand any money over. Genuine freebie sites will not charge you. The thing to remember is that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It is possible to get some freebies, but receiving hundreds of pounds with minimum effort is very unlikely.
The Top Places For Free Stuff

Freebie Websites


Ilovefreegle.org and Freecycle.org – These sites allow people to offer free stuff they no longer want to people in their local area. This is great for larger items like furniture.

BzzAgent – This site offers free products in return for a mention on Twitter, Facebook, and other social network pages.
GumTree (Freebies section) – You can get anything you want on Gumtree which includes free stuff, from fire extinguishers, sofas, and TVs to concrete, soil, and scrap wood.
WOWFreeStuff – This site offers a mix of free samples, printable vouchers, and freebies, that are used in stores across the country. Currently, they offer free stuff from coffee to student freebies and free stuff.

Freebie Apps
O2 Priority – This app is available on the Android and iOS app store. It offers awesome offers and deals. These include random freebies, like chocolate bars and cinema tickets. You can also get O2 Priority on other networks, so you can enjoy their freebies.
WeQ4U – This freebie app is a bit specific. You can skip phone queues and reach companies using their direct number, instead of the standard 0800 number. This will let you make a somewhat expensive call for free through your mobile device.
AppGratis – This app offers you all types of new paid/premium apps for the Android and iPhone. And you can get these apps free every day using this app.
Do you have any good freebie apps and websites that you use to get free offers, samples and deals? If so, let me know in the comments!
Hasta luego!

  1. Yay ! Freebies ! I need them right now – my poor old bank account seems to be dwindling rapidly now!! These websites seem great and brilliant tips for being careful on advertised 'freebies' too – I always know it's a bit dodgy when they ask me for card details!!

  2. Thank you for these tips! I used once an app called Scratchy and I won a Amazon Gift Card! It was a really good app and I earned so many points but due to legal reasons, they limited the app to the US only.
