It’s the week of love and if you haven’t made Valentines Day plans for this weekend yet, then head over to our bargain blog where I've written a post giving you a choice of over 30 different money saving Valentines Day experience orientated gifts to choose from.
Getting back to freebies though, looks like Telstra are certainly feeling the love this weekend as they're giving customers free data usage on Sunday. If that doesn't quench your freebie thirst (or you're not a Telstra customer) then don't worry as we also have freebies including tickets to Open Space in Melbourne, a download copy of a gaming title from an immensely popular game franchise, as well as a way to score extra gigabytes of Google Drive data storage without paying a cent.
Before we get into the above mentioned freebies, I wanted to remind you all of the Buckscoop freebie currently underway. If you happen to find a bargain listed on Buckscoop and end up buying the product/s, share a photo of it on our Facebook page telling us which deal you used and we'll send you a free $10 eGift card from the Coles & Myer Group.
