How 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/newsletter. Regardless of their reason, it’s worth claiming your favourite alcoholic freebies! Here are some of the ways you can claim free alcohol. 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 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?).
Free Wine App
Download the wineapp and use referral code EJ815 to claim your £15 free credit to spend on wine. There are tons to choose from including Red, White, Rose, and Sparkling with prices ranging from £9-£70+.
There is a delivery charge but your credit can be used to cover part of this. Once you’ve signed up you will also have the option to refer friends (you will earn £15 for each friend that downloads the app and makes an order).
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. The majority of these will reimburse you for the money you’ve spent on food and drinks as well as paying you for your time!
Believe it or not, there are loads of bars/restraints that will incentivise signing up for their newsletter with FREE drinks offers! Here are the ones that I’ve found recently…
