Over the course of 2018 we’ve come to recognize virtual reality as the next frontier of gaming. With some headsets currently available and others set for release in the coming months, we’ve begun to experience a number of new games across a variety of genres. […]
You don’t need to be a magician to get something for nothing, just be aware of the possibilities that are all around you every day. Many people have no idea of the potential bargains to be had by spending a bit of time researching all options before breaking out the wallet. Here’s some top tips on how to get what you want, without spending any money!
Are you looking for free…..
There are some 80,000 hairdressing positions in the UK, with around 4,000 vacancies every year. That’s a lot of recent graduates and trainees who need to practise their scissor-slinging, so by keeping your eyes peeled whenever you pass a hairdressers, you can usually find the offer of a free, or at least reduced price, haircut in most towns. Of course you run the risk of a disaster, but at least there’s usually an experienced hairdresser on-site too who can help put things right.
Ever wanted to try one of the UK’s most popular activities? Go online with meccabingo.com and for the first week, newbies can join a special room where they play for free, and best of all, you can still win big prizes! That way you can decide if bingo is the game for you, before paying any membership fees.
One of the biggest challenges for online retailers has been overcoming customers’ dislike for delivery charges. Many of the biggest players in the market now offer free delivery to a choice of locations such as your home or a bricks and mortar store. And if you prefer to do your food shopping online as well for convenience, then many supermarket delivery schemes offer one or two deliveries free of charge after you first sign up.
Major shows such as The X-Factor, Strictly Come Dancing and The Voice, as well as lots of comedies and game shows on TV and radio, always need an audience. It’s easy to book them online and so all you need is your transport which, if you’re lucky enough to live within a short distance of the venue, could be next to nothing. Hey presto, you could see a different show every week!
Thinking about joining the gym? It makes sense to have a free trial before you sign up, and most places will allow you, and maybe a friend also, to come and have a tour of the premises and facilities. Once that’s over with and you’ve been through the sales patter, you should also be able to wangle a day on-site where you can workout, or relax in the health suite. If you’ve just moved into a new city (or are just a bit cheeky) you could try this technique at every gym you can find until you settle on the right one for you.
There are many ways to reduce the cost of a holiday if you’re smart about it. If you’re alone you can try couch-surfing, and if you’re a couple or family, why not sign up for a house-sitting program? If you’re flying during peak periods and don’t mind hanging around the airport for a few hours, you may be able to do the airline a favour by giving your seat to someone else and taking the next flight for free.
Most flights are overbooked during the holiday season, so this opportunity is quite common. Then there’s the ‘driveaway’ scheme popularised in the USA by Jack Kerouac – many people need cars delivered across-country during the year – you can put yourself forward to do the driving and pick up a free vehicle, plus a free tank of fuel – all you need to do is get the car safely from Point A to Point B in a set timeframe.
Ever heard of Freecycle? It’s a website that allows you to take all manner of pre-loved items, from gym equipment to old computers, baby clothes to books, free of charge from strangers. It’s a great way to prevent perfectly good items from going to the tip, and you only need to collect.
Being one of the biggest bingo companies in the world is hard work, with thousands of players to keep happy every day, and the eyes of countless people watching your every move. Though there is at least one bingo brand that manages to get it right consistently, and manages to perform impressively in a number of different areas. I’m talking, of course, of Mecca Bingo, who made one of the most convincing and impressive shift from brick and mortar bingo halls, to online, and then on to mobile. This week sees the brand engaged in not just one, but two, interesting little new schemes both set to make their players very happy indeed.
I think the first new promotion worth mentioning about Mecca this week is the Getaway Giveaway; and yes, it is every bit as good as it sounds. I thought I’d mention this offer first, as NZ-casinos is primarily aimed at uncovering the best mobile offers, and the other competition I’ve got news of isn’t just for mobile player – or even just online players!
There’s three weeks left until the end of January, and during each of those weeks, Mecca Bingo is giving away an impressive £1,000 worth of holiday vouchers. You can use said vouchers with over 2,500 different travel agents, effectively meaning you can use your thousand pounds towards any kind of holiday you desire!
Draws for the vouchers will take place on the Mondays of the 19th and 26th of January and 2nd of February. To get your name into the draws, all you need to do it made a deposit using the weekly bonus code, and then wager at least £5 in one of the bingo rooms at the site. It’s really that simple.
The weekly codes are:
- 12th and 16th January – “HOLIDAY”
- 19th and 23rd January – “VOUCHER”
- 26th and 30th January – “GIVEAWAY”
Do you remember when Mecca ran its Britain’s Got Talent style competition a while ago? Well, it’s back! While the Getaway Giveaway is perfect for players online and on mobile, the new Star Search from Mecca is an interesting concept, apparently aimed at getting bums back on seats in local bingo halls. The main premise is that if you demonstrate enough of a talent to win the Star Search competition, you’ll be in the running to win a trip to Hollywood, a stay in a Beverley Hills hotel (along with spa treatments), all topped off with a nice big £2,000 worth of spending money.
To get yourself into the competition, you’ll need to head to head to your local Mecca bingo hall before the 22nd of April 2018, and take part in one of the special filming sessions, in which you can show off your talent, and get the video uploaded to the Mecca website for all to judge. Don’t worry though – if you’re an online player who has never even been to a real bingo hall, you can always just tape yourself and upload the video to the Mecca Facebook page… you know, because the internet always wins.
