Freebie Friday – Try This Free Lottery for A Chance to Win £1000+

Free Lottery UK

 

This weeks Freebie Friday is only for people in the UK.  So sorry if it is not relevant for you.  I know I have a worldwide audience and am trying to find other non UK based Freebies too! Do let me know if you discover any or indeed if you can offer any either 😉 In the meantime why not check out the previous freebies added below!

I must admit I really love my free lotteries.  Sadly I have never won anything on them, but I have friends who have.  I figure my turn to win will come sometime 🙂

If like myself you like the idea of winning cash for free, todays freebie is for you.

The Free Postcode Lottery is very well established and has paid out a huge amount of money to winners.  Click to View the Winners Wall

There are currently 7 ways to win:

The Main Draw

The Survey Draw

The Video Draw

The Stackpot

The Bonus Draw

The Quidco Draw

The Flash Draw 

The prize amount for each draw varies, but range from £5 to over £1000.  The largest prize amount is for the main draw.  All postcode prize pots are rolled over if not claimed so it is impossible to give a specific amount.  The highest I have seen though was £1200.

You also have the chance to win a bonus amount relating to the number of days you check in to the site.  This amount is added to the prize pot when you  make a claim.

Not interested in this one? Don’t forget we have loads of Freebie Friday posts now and many of them can still be claimed:

Freebie Friday – Free Lift From Uber on Christmas Eve!

Free Lift Uber

 

Yes its Freebie Friday time again.  I do try to post at least one Freebie each week. (Click this link to view all previous Freebie Friday posts).  Last week I missed posting one at all – sorry about that! I’m still trying to get used to this whole blogging while travelling around thing at the minute….

Talking about travelling leads nicely into todays Freebie.  Getting home on Christmas Eve can be a little problematic at times, and expensive too.  However this year everyone in the UK has the opportunity to get a free lift home thanks to Budweiser and Uber.

As announced yesterday the two companies have teamed up to help everyone get home safely by offering a free taxi ride.  The offer will be available on UberX between 4pm and midnight on Saturday 24 December to both new and existing Uber users, with rides up to a value of £15.

All new users can also get a free ride up to £15 on Budweiser throughout the rest of December.

If you want to take advantage of these offers do make sure to register with Uber in advance.  I also highly recommend pre booking.  Uber drivers are going to be busy i’m guessing!

I must admit I am loving this freebie.  Anything that helps to encourage people to be safe over the holiday period is great in my book, and this one is so practical.  This great offer comes just as the Police get more power to stop and check drivers too.  In case you haven’t heard there are now random roadside tests happening all across the UK.  Thousands of drivers are getting the random checks daily.

The message is clear, and now there is a free option in place there really are no excuses 😉

Be Safe and a very Merry Christmas to you all!

Freebie Friday – How to Get Your Domain Name for Free

How to Get Your Domain Name for Free

Happy Friday to you all! I hope you are enjoying our Freebie Friday posts so far? I am trying to make them as varied as possible so it is a nice surprise for you each week.

Click Here for Previous Freebie Friday Posts.

Today I would like to tell you how to get your own domain name (or website address) for free.  If you think you have no use for your own domain name then do read on….. 😉

Why have your own domain? 

There are lots of reasons to have your own domain, especially if you work from home.  Firstly you can use it as your own personalised web space.  If you have ever wanted to write a blog or have your own website then you need your own web address to direct people to.  You can use it as a single page, a full site, or you can simply hold the address without having any actual site as well.  Even this is beneficial and I will explain this below.

If you work from home at all, then at some point there is a very high likelihood you will want to promote something.  It doesn’t matter if this is your own babysitting service, your multi level marketing company, your blog or selling website etc etc.  When you do want to have your own site then there is also a very high likelihood the name you want to use will not be available.  This is especially true if you want to use a .com or .co.uk address.  There are millions of people who have already purchased a domain name.  This makes trying to find a unique one harder every day.  A lot of people like to have their own name as their domain name, in fact it is recommended to do so for branding purposes.  So just imagine all the John Smith’s out there who would like johnsmith.com!

The fact a lot of people will want a particular domain name creates demand..  Demand creates a market and means the price increases over time.  Even if you never want to use your own domain yourself you can hold it and sell it on for profit.  This can be so profitable in fact there are people who work from home just buying and selling domain names.  For more details check out Domain Flipping and Website Flipping.

How to get a Domain Name for Free.  

Buying a domain name is a very simple process.  You search for the name you want to buy on a domain checker website such as Go Daddy, 123 Reg, 1and1 etc etc, and if it is free you will be given a purchase price.  Currently you can get one for free though by making your purchase through Swagbucks.  They have an offer to get 1000 Swagbucks back when you buy a domain name through GoDaddy for $4.99. YOU MUST BE NEW TO GODADDY TO BE ELIGIBLE.  1000SB can be redeemed immediately on the Swagbucks site for various rewards.  A paypal payment for example is currently 800SB for a £5 payment, or a £5 Mastercard payment or Amazon gift card  is 720SB.  This means you can actually make a profit by making this purchase right now as $4.99 = £3.94 😉

Step by Step  Guide

Register for your free account with Swagbucks using this link if you don’t have an account already.

Confirm your email address to complete registration.

Navigate to the special offer page for Go Daddy .  Click through the continue button to search for the domain you want to purchase.

Make the purchase through the GoDaddy site following instructions as provided.

Within 45 mins you will receive1000 SB.  To redeem these simple navigate to the rewards page and claim the reward you would like.

NOTE FOR PAYPAL CLAIMS: The money will be sent directly to the PayPal account that is associated with the same email as your Swagbucks.com account. Your first and last name needs to be an exact match to your PayPal account information.  Your PayPal account also needs to be verified.

Freebie Friday – Graze on Something Tasty!

free-2

I am very happy to include Graze in this weeks Freebie Friday post! As a big fan of the graze boxes I have to admit to being a nibbler lol 🙂

If you have never heard of Graze before it is a snack box service that gets posted to your home.  The snacks have no artificial colours, flavours, sweeteners or preservatives, as well as no MSG.  They are basically healthy but very tasty snacks that are perfect for nibbling on.

The boxes contain a wonderful selection of goodies and you can personalise your choices too.  The flapjacks and brownies are definitely top of my list.  There are also great combinations that I have never seen anywhere else.  Hot Cross Yum is one of my own favourite combinations.  That has orange flavoured raisins, caramelised honey and cinnamon almonds and vanilla sponge drops.  Have you ever heard of those before?

If thats not for you then I am sure you will find plenty that suits you.  There are around 150 amazing snacks to choose from!

The main thing that I really like about Graze is you get to choose snacks according to your own dietary needs. For example if you would like to boost your energy levels you can see which snacks are good for that.  Due to my own health issues this is very useful for me personally.  It means I can select snacks with protein to help with energy levels rather than sugar.  There are also vegetarian and vegan options available.  A selection of the healthy boxes are shown below:

graze

I am very happy to say I have been a member of Graze for several years.  It is very easy to manage a Graze account and I have never had a problem.  I have been able to cancel the boxes without any issue when I wanted to take a break as well, but I have always gone back to them.  I do miss the snacks when I don’t get them!

If you would like to try Graze for yourself you can do so for Free.  If you click here to use my Graze recommendation link you will qualify for your 1st, 5th and 10th boxes for Free.  This is an exclusive offer that is only available through a personal recommendation link.

You will need to provide card details.  You can cancel at any time, including after the first box if it is not for you.

 

Are you enjoying our Freebie Friday posts so far? If you have missed the others you can find them all by clicking on Discounts and Deals in the top menu then Freebies in the drop down one 🙂 Some may be time limited but lots are not!

If you enjoyed this post, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook etc 🙂 Don’t forget to let me know if you nab a freebie too 😉

Top Cash Back Trick or Treat Cash Back Giveaway!

Have you seen it yet? Top Cash Back are giving away lots of money!! £13,000 to be exact 🙂 Thats very nice of them isn’t it?

I’m usually way behind on these things and find out about them after they are over.  Since playing this one I’ve made a whole 10p in prizes this time. Hahaha believe it or not I am really happy with that.  I’m easy pleased I know lol. 😉

tcb

Right now there are still 3 days to go on this giveaway, and actually it is quite fun.  You just look for the daily clues to a retailers name.  When you figure it out you just open that page to see if you win.  If you get the right page the hummingbird appears to let you know you have won something.

If you are lucky enough to get a hummingbird you just need to click on it to get your prize.

It seems you can still win prizes for old clues as well so today I am making a list of the places other people have got a prize.  Lots of them are mentioned on the TCB facebook page 😉

If you haven’t tried these ones yet you might be lucky if you pop over – PS it doesn’t always work first visit!

I have collected 19 prizes so far…..

Fancy A Little Bonus?

While you are over on the Top Cash Back site you might as well earn a little cash too.  How does £10 for Free sound? For details of how to get that just check out my first Freebie Friday Post.

There are always loads of ways to make money on Top Cash Back.  I have made over £400 in cashback just for clicking through the Top Cash Back site before buying something online.  I have mainly used it for things like my phone and broadband accounts and insurance etc.  In fact I recently got a fantastic car insurance deal which saved me 50% on the cost of that.

With Christmas just around the corner too I am certain to get some more cashback on things I was going to buy anyway.  The most difficult thing is just to remember to go through Top Cash Back in the first place!

Did This Help You? If so, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook etc 🙂
