5 Ways to Get FREE Alcohol!

Believe it or not, there are companies out there that will gift you free alcohol! Some want you to review their service for them, others just want you to sign up to their app or newsletter. Regardless of their reason, it’s worth claiming your favourite alcoholic freebies!

Here is how to get free alcohol and find the best best alcohol deals all year round.

Two beer bottles

Please remember to drink responsibly.


Shopmium Free Alcohol (with Cashback)

The Shopmium app is amazing, you buy the products listed and they’ll give you your money back (paid straight into your PayPal). There are often alcoholic drinks listed either at a discounted price of for FREE!

I’ve had tons of free alcohol (specifically cider and wine) from the Shopmium! As well tons of free food including chocolate, crisps, salads and cheese (the perfect snacks to accompany your beverage?).

Mystery Shopping

Serve Legal is the UK’s leading ID testing company. They enable companies to independently test that their staff are checking the ID of young customers – an approach supported by local authorities.

Serve Legal are currently recruiting ‘compliance auditors’ to perform compliance auditing visits to a range of sites. These visits can be to supermarkets, bars & betting shops – the Serve Legal employee is required to visit these sites & then report back on a specific compliance issue. You need to be 18/19 for age-related testing or 20+ for wider compliance audits. 

There also various other mystery shopping companies that offer pub and restaurant visits that give you the chance to enjoy free alcohol. The majority of these will reimburse you for the money you’ve spent on food and drinks (aka free alcohol) as well as paying you for your time!

Many opportunities are flexible and offer generous hours, for example, 711 sells alcohol and beer late at night and weekends.


Newsletters

Believe it or not, there are loads of bars/restraints that will incentivise signing up for their newsletter with FREE alcohol and drinks offers! Here are the ones that I’ve found recently…

Pitcher & Piano – free cocktail every month.

Be at Onea free cocktail when you sign up to its newsletter.

Pizza Expresssign up to their mailing list and you’ll get a free bottle of prosecco for your birthday.

Browns – receive a free pineapple daiquiri in any Brown’s bar when you sign up to Brown’s newsletter.

Marston’s pubs – sign up for a voucher for either a free pint of Fosters, any draught ale (excluding Guinness), 175ml glass of house wine, J2O, Pepsi, or lemonade.


Loyalty Cards

If you use your loyalty cards wisely you could earn some great perks – including free alcohol! With a Tesco Clubcard you’ll earn 1 point for every £ that you spend, you could save up all your points and treat yourself to your favourite bottle of bubbly!

Revolution bars’ loyalty card gets you 2-4-1 cocktails (& 50% off all food), along with a free shot on your birthday & loads of other offers. When you first join you also get a book with over £100 worth of vouchers in it. Considering the card’s only £3, why wouldn’t you? If you sign up to their newsletter you’ll also be the first to hear about their best alcohol deals.
