A new website has been launched to help cash-strapped families save money on things like eating out, magazine subscriptions, beauty products and gym memberships.
FreebieShare.co.uk provides access to the latest freebies and discounts, including restaurant vouchers and free product samples. The website is targeted specifically at the UK market, so visitors will find no unrelated, international offers. People visiting the site are able to comment on and share freebies via social networking channels.
Andy Varley, founder, said: “Bargain hunting is at an all time high but there’s still plenty of people unaware of the huge number of freebies online. For example, most restaurant chains provide free vouchers that can cut your bill significantly. Free trials are also hugely popular, with many companies offering 30-day trial periods of their services.
“Samples of products are equally as popular and allow visitors to try before they buy. Freebies available on the web range from fragrance samples and food, to baby items and DVDs, so there is something for everyone.”
But while a proportion of freebies on the web are genuine, a word of warning is advised: “It pays to use caution when requesting freebies and discounts”, says Varley.
“There are a lot of scams out there on the web and I recommend doing research before committing to an offer. This means paying close attention to any terms and conditions, since catches are often hidden in the small print.
“Legitimate websites are few and far between and if something looks too good to be true, it probably is.”
