I remember them as "freebies". And I'm not sure what you categorise as "The Older Generation" ? 20y+?
#2
i think they were called diskettes??
#3
Can't find anything to confirm this on a quick search but my OH says they were called acetates.
#4

they are called flexi discs here but the free ones with cereals and mags were called acetates
#6
flexidiscs is the correct name for the mass produced cover mounted giveaways-acetates were only produced in very small quantity as a promo thing for artists/labels etc. acetates only had so many plays in them then they were useless.

I remembered flexi discs. I was thinking floppy disc at first! They were terrible, half the time they didnt work.
#8
i remember creasing them and then trying toplay them again! Aah such fun times us oldies had!!!
