Ways to get Cash, Discounts and Freebies
Day 3 of my 5 day fast money challenge was all about the cash, freebies and discounts. There are a few things I need to buy before I go overseas which I scored some discounts on. Below are some ways to get straight-up cash along with freebies, discounts and tips for all of it. You can read day 1 (where I found $1,062.89) and day 2 (where the focus is on budget, books and mindset).

Get paid for signing up to any of the below options. It’s quick (especially Up Bank) and you can do all of the below if you want.
$5 with Up
Bank sign-up bonuses vary e.g $5 within minutes when joining Up (the bank I now use), Also, $25 with ING using the code CNW116 for a new everyday account (you must deposit $1,000 within a calendar month, do 5 transactions and open a savings maximiser too).
$10 from Swagbucks
$5 from Raiz
Raiz is a micro-investing app where small amounts can be invested in shares. It does have fees so check them and your investing plans before signing up. Get $5 with Raiz here.
$5 with Spaceship
I prefer Spaceship to Raiz but both are good. Use the code S8JUF0E4SM within 14 days of signing up here and invest at least $5 in your chosen portfolio within 90 days of signing up. T&Cs apply.
$80 off Marley Spoon
It’s offered as $20 off each of your first 4 boxes. Marley Spoon was our favourite when we tested the various meal delivery options.
$35 off HelloFresh
HelloFresh has been quite popular with my family and friends. I had a few issues but my sisters assure me that has all been fixed and they’ve continued to use them. Grab $35 off your first box here.
$30 off Dinnerly
Dinnerly is the cheapest meal delivery option and is owned by Marley Spoon. Fresh produce with fewer steps and way less packaging so more environmentally friendly. Grab $10 off each of your first 3 boxes here.
8. Up to $76 off Airbnb
I use Airbnb a lot. Depending on the place you book, you can get up to $76 off now. It must be your first time using Airbnb though to get it.
Australia has a lot of freebies and sign-up bonuses. Check out a list of birthday freebies here and other freebies here. Always check any site you are shopping with to see if they have a discount or freebie if you sign up too.
Lastly, join cashback sites to save even more. My favourites have been Cash Rewards and Honey. Join all the sites, install them in your toolbar and be notified every time you can get a discount. I’ve noticed sometimes the percentage back will be different between the sites. Also, some sites work with some cashback sites and not others.
Cash Rewards is free to join here. Honey also scans for coupons for you to use on each shop and is free here. Shopback is newer but I have liked it so far and Swagbucks also does cashback but I use them less.
