How to get free money UK

Posted on

I’m a big fan of sharing ways to make more money from home in the UK, but I also love finding ways to save money and even get free money from companies with little effort!  The more money I make, more money I save, more free cash I can find, the more we can begin to live our lives the way we want to.   This is why I love finding and sharing free money offers.  In this blog post I will share with you how to get free money yourself using the same offers I've used to get some free cash into your bank account, gift vouchers, free food and more free stuff!

How to get free money UK

A list of free money promotions and free stuff in the UK

Right now our priorities are saving for our future retirement, continuing to do up our home and having a few travel plans each year to explore new destinations.  Being savvy with money, saving where we can and spotting free money offers helps us to achieve these money goals.

I get really excited when I find ways to get free money in the UK.  It’s rare that companies give away free cash, but I have some great examples below.  If you’ve already visited my free money page then you’ll recognise these, but I want to share them here in a blog post too for those that might only follow my blog, not notice my other pages or who may stumble across this article on Google. 

If that’s you then do check out my main website and the many money websites and categories at the top of my website.  There’s lots of useful information there covering all sorts of money topics from making money at home, money saving tips and family finances.  I love finding easy ways to earn extra money from side hustles, apps and websites, as well as free money offers to boost our overall monthly income. 

Also discover my matched betting blog if you want to earn extra cash and make money from home fast, or check out how to make money blogging if you've got more time :) 

If you're looking for ways to get some free money in the UK then read on.  I share loads of genuine free money offers below for free cash and other free stuff,  including many my family and I have tried and tested!

Quidco - £ unlimited plus £5 bonus

Another cashback site which some people prefer over Top Cashback, but I think it’s worth having both as there are sometimes brands on one, but not the other.  The browser extension will let you know if you can get cashback from the website you are on, so it’s easy to get cashback with little effort.  If you’re not signed up to these cashback sites then you’re just losing out on hundreds of pounds of free money every year!

Free gift voucher offers in the UK

There are also some companies in the UK that will give you free gift vouchers for doing very little. Whilst websites like ClothingRIC have vouchers and promo codes that help you save big on online purchases, there are also some websites and apps that let you earn actual gift vouchers to spend on your online purchases!  I regularly get free Amazon gift vouchers and supermarket gift vouchers each month by doing nothing or with very small effort.  Here are some of the ways you can get free Amazon gift cards and other gift vouchers:


Huyu - £ varies

This app lets you take photos of your supermarket receipts and you can change them for gift vouchers.  I change mine for Tesco gift vouchers. 

Sign up here.


SnapMyEats - up to £5 voucher per month

Take photos of all your food and drink receipts with SnapMyEats and you’ll earn up to £5 in Amazon gift vouchers, or another voucher of your choice from their selection, each month if you snap enough receipts.  You can cash out a £10 Amazon voucher every other month, or a different voucher of your choice.
