15 fabulous freebies for February!
Find out how to get free cinema tickets, a free eye test, a free haircut, free food and drink and much much more!
If you’re feeling a little fed up with the winter months and you need some cheering up, we’ve got 15 fantastic freebies to put a smile back on your face!
1. Free cinema
If you’re a keen cinema-goer, you’re bound to love the idea of watching a selection of fabulous films from last year absolutely free.
And you can do exactly that by printing out this voucher which will give you admission to any of the films in the 2011 BAFTA Film Tour. Screenings haven’t yet been announced but you’ll be able to see these films at 14 Cineworld cinemas across the country. Screenings will take place on Friday, 25 February.
2. Free haircut
Need a new haircut but don’t want to waste your money? Well, now you can get one for free!
All you need to do is check whether you have a Hair Group salon near you and if you do, simply fill in your details on page 16 (back page) of V style magazine from Very. Someone will then get in touch with you within 60 days to arrange an appointment.
The closing date for entry is midnight on 3 March and the offer is valid for three months.
3. Free tea
Sometimes nothing can beat a good old cuppa. So if you love your tea, take a look at the Twinings website which is offering a range of free samples. You can select up to two samples, with teas ranging from strawberry and mango to nettle and peppermint to Assam.
4. Free SIM from giffgaff
If you want to save money on your mobile, giffgaff is a great little website as it offers some truly fabulous SIM only deals – with packages starting from just £5 a month.
What’s more, instead of dealing with technical support lines, if you have any problems with your phone, the users on giffgaff’s community pages will help you out!
So if you fancy trying it out, you can pick up your free giffgaff SIM card here.

5. Free international SIM
OK, so you will have to pay a little towards this one, but if you regularly use your mobile phone for international calls, you can pick up a free international SIM card with T-Mobile here.
All you then have to do is top up your SIM by £10 during the week and you’ll receive £10 credit to use that weekend on international calls or texts.
To give you an idea of how much calls cost through this deal, calls to a landline in the US, India or Poland cost just 5p per minute. So £10 credit will give you 200 minutes of international calling time.
6. Free food at Morrisons
If you love your food, why not become a taste tester for Morrisons? All you have to do is ‘Like’ the Morrisons We Love Food Facebook page and enter your details here for a chance to be selected as a taste tester.
If you’re chosen, you’ll be sent some products to taste and review and you’ll also be sent £20 worth of Morrisons vouchers. Can’t be bad!
7. Free Dove samples
For those of you who can’t get enough of Dove products, you might be interested to hear that you can sign up for free samples and special offers if you enter your details here. What’s more, you’ll also be kept up to date with all the latest news about new products and so on!
So why not give yourself a little pampering for free?
8. Free headphones
If you’re permanently attached to your iPod and you regularly travel by Virgin Trains, print out this voucher and you’ll be able to pick up a free Virgin Trains branded set of headphones. Simply take your voucher to a staff member in The Shop onboard a Virgin Trains service.

If you need to get your eyes tested, but don’t fancy paying for the privilege, head over to the Tesco Opticians website and find out how you can book an eye test free of charge.

Mathscard is a compact credit card-sized information sheet that folds out to reveal a variety of maths formulae for both school and revision use! All you have to do is fill in your child’s details here.
Alternatively, if you prefer, you can download an app on iTunes, Ovi, Android Market or Blackberry App World (although it's also compatible with a number of other smartphone handsets).
