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?

gerrykelly25 I started on the white raspberry truffles earlier and those were lovely. I'm going to enjoy eating all of this slowly to savour it.

Ceebers and wouldn't you believe it today has been sunshine all day long... typical. I thought that would be it until next year. On the down side it meant I had to go outside to paint a pallet I'm making into some shelves.

Today's freebie was a stroller for my son. His current one is getting heavy to push with him in it, so I'm hoping this one will be lighter. I had originally bought him a travel system that was meant to do him till he was 3, he grew out of it when he was 2!

Ceebers he is so tall! Not even 3 and in 3-4 years clothes! I blame his dad as my mother in law says he was the same! I think it should be fine, just depends on whether he likes it or not xx

Just a heads up to look out for these freebies on fb - I've managed to get approved, really quickly, for all four. Flexitol, Neals Yard, Cetreban and Dr Hauschka

MrsCraig I also had a spell of missing them all. Perhaps you need to tweak your following preferences on their sites. I ditched a lot of 'old' likes/favourites and made sure the products I did want to see came into my feed first.

I have some tizzy news. Yesterday she nearly fell head first into the toilet. I was there and I could see it happening in slow motion as I moved in to grab her. She didn't end up in the toilet just on the floor looking a bit shocked. thank goodness as no one wants to try and bath her.

Ceebers She did land on her feet albeit like a ton of bricks. She isn't good at jumping up or down onto things because she has such little legs. She prefers to step up onto things or be lifted. The toilet incident is what happens when she tries to jump by herself.

I've won a book from Toppsta. No sign of the flowers from 2 weeks ago. Had a massive 'yellow sticker' haul at Morrisons this evening, £41.31 down to £10.48 sorry no pics.

lilyflower Congrats on the book win. I've mostly swapped over to food deliveries so I miss out on the yellow sticker treats 🙁 - I honestly thought I'd miss the 'browsing' but it's given me extra time so I can't complain.

lilyflower well done on the toppsta book. I do love a bargin. That's a good saving at Morrisons. 2 weeks isn't anything yet. I'm still waiting for my deckchair I won back in July as are all of us who won. After the 20th of september I'm going to be chasing them.

gerrykelly25 It really depends on the tone of the red, orangey reds can make teeth look yellow, especially on blondes so I keep to a blueish option. 😆

MrsCraig I managed to cash in a fiver yesterday. The way I'm going with surveys, that's the most I can look forward to claiming at the moment. I keep being too busy and I keep trying to make time. I did pot on my blueberry plant this morning, though.

MrsCraig Christmas!!! yes, that is the problem. I need the money for christmas. I could use some of the vouchers I'm saving up for myself, but I don't want to. I've been lazy this week with comps. I've been watching tv, reading, doing other things in the evenings, which has been lovely, but I'm not going to like it when I don't win anything for weeks.

ShellyAnn we don't go overboard at Christmas but our son is starting to understand it more so need to make an effort this year! Luckily my mum is giving us her decorations that she doesn't use anymore so that saves us money. I never save the vouchers up for myself, it always goes towards my son, my husband or the house.

I haven't won a comp in months, but I've been a bit sporadic with entering them, would be nice to win something before Christmas

Afternoon all,

- Postman came and bought me my home tester club item to try. It doesn't say if I can take photos of it or not. But I will do just incase they are like 'so, do you have a photo then?', when I'm doing the final survey.

- My chocolate bat cupcake toppers prize arrived. A whole box full! I was expecting about 4 not 40! Quite a few are broken as it looks like the package was thrown around the sorting office. Photo tomorrow when I have more time.

- I've been offered on facebook a packet of trebor extra strong mints and some royal canin treats via samplr. I said yes to both and have confirmation emails.

That's how today is so far.

and for no reason, rock Jared as it makes my life more interesting when I look at him.

Hope you are all having a good day
