Things you can get for free this month

Fancy something for nothing? Take a look at what you can get for free during December.

Free letter from Santa

The Post Office will reply to every letter sent to Santa for free if you get them in before Friday 14th December 2012. You will need to include a stamped addressed envelope for your kids to receive a nice letter, card and workshop scene to colour in.   

For blind or partially sighted children the Royal National Institute for the Blind is offering a reply from Santa in large print, braille or audio. Letters will need to be sent by Monday 3rd of December. But an email can be sent until Monday 17th of December if you are happy to get an email reply.

Free Coca-Cola

The Coca-Cola truck from the iconic  ‘Holidays are coming’ TV ad will be touring the UK and offering free cans of Coke, Coke Zero or Diet Coke until the 24th of December. Find out if the truck will be stopping somewhere near you here.

Free book

DK is offering a free book if you complete this form with your details plus the details of a friend to sign up to the DK newsletter. The publisher is part of the Penguin Group and produces non-fiction titles ranging from travel guides through to cook books. Both you and the friend you recommend will get a free book as long you submit the form before Wednesday 12th of December.

Free gaming

Sony is offering a 30-day free trial of PlayStation Plus to PlayStation 3 owners. The package has ten free games to download, full game trials and exclusive access to huge discounts. All you have to do is ‘like’ the Facebook page.

Free entry

Winter Wonderland is back in Hyde Park, London for another year of festive fun. The Christmas festival will have food, activities and amusements open – even on the bank holidays - until the 6th of January. Admission is absolutely free so you can wander around and even meet Santa at his Grotto. But if you want to go on the rides or enter the amusements like the circus shows and ice skating this will cost money.

Free events to support

It’s World Aids Day on 1st of December and there are a number of free events taking place around the country to raise awareness and show support throughout the rest of the month. See what’s going on and take part in your area.

Free beauty products

If you want a free sample of St Ives scrub you need to submit a photo of your face au naturel. This offer is available until the 14th of December.

Elsewhere you can sustain your tan well into the bleak winter with a free sachet from the award winning sienna X range of fake tanning products. Simply fill in this form to get your free sample.

Free food

Porridge stops cravings and sets you up for the day. If you fancy a free sample of Grasshopper Porridge fill out your details here.

 For those with a sweet tooth, ‘like’ the Voucher Codes Facebook page and get a free Thorntons chocolate Santa lolly or continental Viennese bar.

Free hot drinks

If you’re a fan of tea you might also be interested to hear that Twinings is giving away two free samples of its range. Just fill in the form to get them sent out.

Elsewhere, myWaitroise loyalty cardholders can get a free tea or coffee to have in-store or take away every day. Choose from an Americano, Cappuccino, Latte, Tea, Mocha or Espresso to warm you up this winter. The promotion launched in November, hasn’t got an end date but I think December might be a good time to take advantage of Waitrose’s generosity! If you haven’t already got one, you can apply for a myWaitroise loyalty card in-store or online.

    If you want a free office suite, why not just use OpenOffice which is widely supported.

    As for the comments about being a pedant, and proper use of the English language, why doesn't Reena Sewraz just change the topic title to 'Things you can get four three this month.'.

    Remember that while literacy would be a nice requisite for the position of journalist, nothing beats the investigative nature required for this job, so if you have someone who can sniff out the stories, yet is illiterate, we have to weigh their investigative nature against their ability to convey what they have discovered.

    It is all well and good knowing where to dot the I's and cross the T's, but it may end up making for such a boring site. On the other hand, if LM invest in a couple of proof readers, we could see such scintillating stories being told using proper English, with all the correct pronunciation and verb usage.

    Mind you, I might be writing this with Tongue in Cheek.

    ;-)

    This is a bit weird. All the above comments were added in October and November 2012. The article is dated 1 December 2012.

    I spent a few minutes trying to work out why the first offer expired on the 30 November. I understand now. What I don't understand is why it's included in an article with the said date? I do understand the benefits of recycling - but some editing would be useful. I'm gutted that I can't get my freebie from Amazon.
