Freebies, coupons and other useful links for Mums (and Dads!) to be.

107
Found 25th Feb 2014
Just found out that my friend is pregnant and she asked me to put together a list of any good freebies or money off vouchers around. My advice would be to join them all, as for obvious reasons they all send out at least vouchers and you never really know what will come in handy when.

Some freebies are better than others but, especially if it's your first pregnancy, it's nice to know where to join and what's available.

I hope some others find it as helpful as my friend did and if anyone knows of any that I've not listed, I'd love to hear them!

***Think for any type of freebie you may get some spam. Again my advice would be to use a spam email, check what you are agreeing to via the tick boxes upon registration and use 000000000 (or similar as your telephone number) Registering with TPS avoids unsolicited calls and there are apps for mobiles such as Mr Number Block. Lots of freebies and good vouchers make it worth a little effort****

Thanks Transformers, I do hope so

would never recommend Emmas diary. they sell your details and you will be plagued with random phone calls, emails and letters. advise avoiding!

If you collect your bounty packs from asda you get asda extras too. My last one I got a babygrow and a nice baby towel. The towels are £5 to buy from Asda

Hi twinmamma, (bet you have your hands full ) that's a shame as they do some fab freebies. My daughter is 7 now and I joined up during my pregnancy and never had any of the above. Realise things may have changed in that time of course. I'd always recommend using a separate email for sign ups and that way you're not plagued with junk from anyone and also check the tick boxes when you're signing up to agree what can and cannot be done with your details. It's a fine line between getting all the freebies and vouchers that are literally thrown at you when you're expecting (companies appreciate if they get you on board now-the likelihood is they will have you for a while ;)) and trying to avoid the junk

Again been 7 years for me but remember the Bounty ones as being quite good? Think there was a few and some were better than others though? As you say great with gemma's added info

i joined Emmas diary when my first born., now nearly 8, was due. still plagued by them! never received anything except calls etc. totally agree to using different info., wish i had! x

X) I've genuinely never heard a thing. Yip tick boxes, spam emails seems the way to go

oh and that was with requesting no 3rd parties. going off internet it is a panchant of theirs to sell info x

You must have appeared richer than me X)

I signed up to Emma's Diary too but never had any issues. As Karri said always make sure you opt out of mailing by ticking/unticking the necessary boxes (make sure you read it carefully as the wording can be confusing on some). If you do get any emails and find you've been subscribed to newsletters etc just scroll down to the bottom of the email where you'll be given the option to unsubscribe.

Great info Karri

hiya my partners just had out 3 day old baby girl and it would be nice to know Iif I can get some hot deal's for new burn baby

Asda is the best one I joined as we got a free newborn starter pack , and within the newborn starter pack was a voucher £3 off a newborn starter pack which was on offer for £2 so I went to self service and hey presto I scanned my coupon and it spat a quid back at me ... Therefore I was getting paid to get more nappies and wipes .... Obviously I did this everyday for about 3 weeks and had a stash of free nappies and about £20 up too lol

Thanks Karri123 this will be very useful for me

I got an Emma's diary pack for a friend last year, haven't had a single bit of spam yet. Good freebie too, she got babywipes, various little bottles of Johnson's products, a nappy, heaps of information and Palmer's stretch mark cocoa butter. Great list, heat from me.

Thanks for the feedback PurpleLassie

Having a 12wk old, I have recently collected every bounty pack from beginning to end. I collected mine mostly from Boots & Argos and got tonnes of freebies. I had at least 3 J&J packs with a full pack of wipes and mini oil, bath and nappy cream samples. Loads of Palmers samples, vouchers, pampers & aldi nappy samples, various other wipe & nappy cream samples and more recently baby tooth paste samples.

Pampers have sent me 3 £1 vouchers since he was born as well. Spam aside, its definitely worth it.

might be worth adding sometimes fisher price give playmat toys away every now and then when you register for their news letter.

Thanks very much Sam, very useful feedback and have added your Fisher Price tip to the OP-thanks for posting

Very informative. Thanks Karri. Heat added.

I got my bounty pack from asda and got a pack of muslin squares, which were extras to what my friend got in hers and our babies are only a couple of weeks apart....Emma's diary sold my details on I was bombarded with phone calls afterwards, saying things like 'as you're pregnant your electricity bill will increase, so you should switch to us'. Became apparent it was them who had sold my details....

Oh and if you are going to register with Emma's diary, don't do it too early! They sent me my Argos vouchers, but they were only valid for 30days...as I was only 8 weeks pregnant when I joined, I didn't want to buy anything big before I'd even got my scan!

Most helpful for me as a first time mum to be!!! Thanks ever so much for the time and effort put in to bringing all of this together.

heat added I've had two children and a few of these I've only just heard off :-D

It's worth noting that huggies no longer make nappies, only wipes, in the UK

Cow and gate vouchers from the boots baby club give you a free starter weaning box, which has a bunch more cow and gate vouchers in
And in supermarkets try and go self service with vouchers. I had two cashiers voiding vouchers because they were for a free fruit pouch and took off £1.19 when the pouch was 50p. Self service they woman checked the pic was the same and validated them

Sad times indeed mike! This will be the first friend I've not been able to do the Huggies box trick for (Wait until they go to £3 in Asda baby event, buy one and get the nappies, wipes, hat/cotton and use all the vouchers inside to get them all again plus swimmer sample and tissues for £1) No one I know has ever had to new baby nappies X) Think they still do swimmers, pull ups and dry nights here in the UK though? People seem to rave about Lidl nappies these days too but never tried them personally.

I did this for our last one. My OH went mental as i got a bit obsessed. Plus there was an insane offer on wipes at the time in Sainsburys. I think i ended up with nearly 90 packs of wipes and 400+ nappies ha

X) at least you had a baby! X) My OH would see me coming in with more boxes and just roll his eyes! So worth it though, for £1 a time and getting all that stuff- babies are an expensive business I like your style mike!

Good work Karri123, i was starting to looking for this info, good you group all in one.

thanks again!!
