1. Chat

Freebie and Competition News (Part 2)

In the News

It seems that the Latest Deals website is struggling to cope with the chat I started, over 4 years ago, due to the volume of comments! So I am starting a new chat and waving goodbye to over 10,000 comments and starting fresh.

So where were we????

I thought it might be a nice idea to share our recent finds and discuss these on Chat. Whether it be a fab freebie or a spectacular win (or maybe it's just me being super nosey so you can tell me to take a long jump!) I thought it would be fun to report what we've been receiving.

And those of you that are 'Super Hunters' you might like to share some tips.

What do you think? Worthwhile topic or naff?

MrsCraig Yeah I know what you mean, but wow 😮 you do a lot of them and earn so much money!! That’s such a big commitment! 🙌🏻

kitty88uk I don't see it as a big commitment though. I do them when I have time. I save whatever I earn throughout the year and use it at Christmas time. It pays for all of our sons presents and a few family ones too. Pays for the food shop also. I enjoy doing them.

MrsCraig Okay 👍🏻 that’s good 😌 helping to pay for foods too! I do the same too! Not sure 🤔 how much I’ve earned altogether I should take a note 📝 of all of it down 😬

kitty88uk I keep a total of how much I've earned during the year. Just add to the total when I claim a voucher. It definitely all adds up.

kitty88uk I don't use receipt apps. I've heard of them but never tried. I looked into them but never got round to using them. Last time I looked into them they weren't taking new customers on. I know a few of them have closed down too.

kitty88uk the school library is great, they sit down together as a class and the librarian reads a story with them and then they get to pick a book.

I've had a few perfumes, some cat treats for my mums cat, a dove tanning lotion for my mother in law, a moisturiser. Can't think of any others. Have you had any freebies lately?

MrsCraig I have a 3rd and final interview tomorrow so here's hoping it will b good news. If not, it's been a fun few days exploring a new business area and swatting up on marketing technology platforms.

I just got a £50 voucher from Tom, Deepak and Kelsey for my Latest Deals contribitions. I am working my way up to 850,000 points next.

I also got a lovely letter for, HMRC offering me the chance to claim a tax rebate that the 'daylight bandito's' took from my last salary!!!

MrsCraig The HRMC generally sends more troublesome letters I have to say. But this one was a delight. It is also super-easy to claim, and lucky ol' me should receive the money in my account within 7 days. I doubt with interest since they have had my cash for over 1 year! 😂

Ceebers it was indeed. At the time I worked 2 part time jobs. I was rightly bring taxed for both but on the wrong tax codes. I was being charged tax for the full time salary of each job.
