A Question about "Freebies" with Postage Costs

Ask a Question

Hello everyone.

Not so long ago, the admins mentioned implementing some sort of system where you can filter out freebies that come with postage costs. I was just wondering when this will get enforced?

Myself and many other freebie hunters are tired of seeing so many so called freebies that come with postage costs, especially since these postage costs are not only becoming more common but also more and more expensive.

If we had the option to filter out those said "freebies" with postage costs, or members posted them as deals instead, then it wouldn't at all be a problem and everyone on LD would be happy. πŸ™‚

Yeah well said RC90

I think that will rule out Gogroupie, groupon and all those other con sites - so probably a good idea!

I cant tell you the number of times i see a good holiday on groupon then add Departure airport - EDINBURGH and the price goes up by Β£200 quid lol

Hello garygemmell ,

Yeah, sadly we do get many of those con sites being posted on here. Another one I don't trust are the freebies where you use Google Forms to apply. I have never once nor have ever heard of anyone who has received anything through Google Forms.

RegularComper90 A "fanny" in Scotland is colloquial for a silly person not the american or english connotation by the way just in case the spelling police and censors think i am using foul language!

***** in scotland is a great word - its in every comedy show up here from RAB C Nesbitt to that yin with the guy dressed as an auld burd canny remember the name on BBC1 i think!

Mrs Brown or summat?

fingers crossed this feature will get added soon, as I know it can be annoying if the full cost of a β€˜freebieβ€˜ isn’t clear. I even get a bit annoyed if I have to subscribe for a freebie, as there will be the opportunity for scammers to take unauthorised payments, which are a pain to sort out
