Warm yourself up with a free coffee or hot cocoa...
I've known about this free hot drink offer from Waitrose since it launched in 2014, but with no store nearby I didn't register for the myWaitrose card.
Until...a brand new Waitrose opened up near to the Magic Freebies office! The first thing I did was click onto the myWaitrose website and order a loyalty card.
it took a few weeks to arrive, but when it did I was pleasantly surprised to find a normal card plus two mini fob-style cards too. Handy for putting on your car keys.
I went to Waitrose the next day to pick up some supplies like water and pieces of fruit, and headed to the counter to claim a free drink. The staff simply swipe your card and give you a cup so you can help yourself at the self-serve machine.
I served myself up a free latte and it was delicious! The perfect morning pick-me-up.
Now, Waitrose say you must shop with them to claim this freebie - and if you're sitting in the cafe then they would like you to purchase something to go with your free drink - but I saw many people claiming free drinks without shopping. So, I think every now and then is fine!
Coffee is so expensive these days so it's nice to get a free treat. Here are some of my favourite offers at the moment:
- 50p medium coffee at Giraffe on Wake Up Wednesdays (£1 for a large) before 10.30am
- Free hot drink at Caffe Nero every Tuesday from 12pm through Priority Moments
- Free hot drink and cake at John Lewis three times a year
- Free drink from Pret - just by being nice!
I mix it up every week and visit a few different stores and manage to save quite a bit of money! For more money-saving tips make sure you check out my article - Penny pinching woman saves £6,000 a year.
