Guide: Free Stuff, Birthday Gifts & Discounts For First Time Customers

Your comprehensive guide to all the freebies you can score online, right now.

Do you want free stuff? Of course you do! That's why you're here.

We're pretty into saving money here, so when we kept seeing stores offering up freebie after freebie, we decided they all had to have a little home on the Internet to sit in. Hence, this page was born.

Why do companies give away freebies? To entice you to buy, of course. This is business, and they can't give away something for nothing. But in an overcrowded marketplace, they have to compete for your bottom dollar – which is excellent for customers all round. Price are lower, products are better, and – just sometimes – you'll get something thrown in for nothing.

Online stores that give you discounts for first time customers / signing up

Plenty of stores will give you a cheeky 10% off your first order, in exchange for your email. Here's who's offering it:

Pro tip: unless it's a brand you love, set up a filter in your inbox so you don't get spammed with masses of emails. Then, once a week (or just after payday) check and see what goods have arrived! Often this is the best place to find out about new products, sales, and sometimes even a promo code.

10% off your next order

Sign up at Samantha Wills and receive 10% off on your next order. Sign up now!

Where else can you get something for (next to) nothing?
