Jordon Cox - Britain's Coupon Kid

Since age 15, I’ve worked to help people around the country save money through coupons, deals and money saving tips. Now aged 22, it’s my goal to help everyone make their money go further. Here are some deals:

Odeon cinema

Odeon cinema tickets from £4 with Groupon

A trip to the cinema is always fun – just maybe not for your wallet. With tickets now soaring to over £10 per ticket, it’s now essential to find a deal. Here’s one that does just that.

Cinema chain Odeon has some of the most expensive tickets in the country. For me to see the new Star Wars movie at my local Odeon would cost £13.25 per adult and £10.25 per child. Got a family of four, and that’s £47!

Luckily there is a deal on right now  that will get you 5 cinema tickets for £20 – less than half price and one left over! Here’s what to do:

How to get it

This deal is available on Groupon, where they are offering either 2 for £10 or 5 for £20 cinema tickets.

2 tickets for £10 would put them at £5 each (which is still good), although buying 5 for £20 drops the price to £4 each. Even if you don’t have that many people to go to the cinema with, you can save them for next time.

To claim the deal, you’ll have to purchase the tickets through Groupon to get the cheap rate, and you’ll then be sent an email confirmation with the voucher codes you’ll need to put into Odeon’s website.

You can use the tickets on adults and children, and you can see most films. Some of the future releases cant be purchased until they are released (see full T&Cs on Groupon’s website). You can see the big films out now like Star Wars, Frozen 2 and Little Women.

The tickets will be valid from Fri 17 January until Fri 20 March, and can be redeemed on 2D films only, at any Odeon cinema.

You can only book the tickets online (you cant take the codes into a cinema), which means there will be a 75p booking fee when you book each ticket, but it’ll still be a lot cheaper than paying full price.

These tickets with Groupon are usually pretty popular, so if it’s something you want – go quick before they sell out.

I hope you’re feeling like a movie star if you get some tickets for £4 each. You could maybe accompany your cinema trip with a free McDonald’s via its app, or get some waterproof mascara for the sad films with the upcoming Boots 70% off sale.

Will you be getting some cheap cinema tickets? I’d love to know in the comments below, on Twitter @Jordon_Cox or on Facebook.

Birthday freebies

Birthday Freebies – £45+ worth of total freebies you can claim on your birthday

Your birthday is a great time of year with presents and cake galore. But did you know you could actually get £45+ worth of freebies on your birthday without spending a penny?

When most people think of birthday freebies – you think of the ‘deals’ like ‘get a free main meal… when you buy another’. But did you know, you can actually sign up to a bunch of different loyalty programs and schemes in which you’ll be sent freebies with no spend required.

It’s not all just food too – you can claim vouchers with no minimum spend in stores including Body Shop, Paperchase and more – meaning you can buy yourself your own presents and not spend a penny.

It’s worth mentioning, that if you sign up to a lot of these, you may get a bit more spam than usual – so if you wanted to, you can start up a separate email account just for your birthday freebies (that way they don’t get lost too).

Without further ado – here are some birthday freebies:

High street birthday freebies

Paperchase – £5 free to spend

Pop into a store and pick up a ‘treat me’ card. Once you’ve registered it online, you will receive £5 worth of credit on the card on your birthday. It’s valid for 14 days, so you don’t have to use it straight away.

Body Shop – £5 free to spend

Sign up for the Body Shop ‘Love My Body Club‘ and you’ll get a £5 voucher emailed to you on your birthday with no minimum spend. It’s valid for 1 month after your birthday.

Hobbycraft – £5 free to spend

Get yourself a Hobbycraft account and when your birthday comes around, you’ll get a free £5 emailed to you. There’s no minimum spend and you have 14 days to use it.

Ikea – £5 free to spend (for some)

Sign up to the Ikea Family Club and some users receive a £5 voucher on their birthday to spend in store. Not everyone gets this and it’s purely luck of the draw, so it’s worth a try (plus you get free tea/coffee, £1.50 breakfasts and other perks for signing up)

Food/drink birthday freebies

Greggs – Free doughnut, cupcake or creamcake (worth £1ish)

If you’re signed up to Greggs Rewards, you’ll get a freebie under the ‘rewards’ tab on the app on your birthday – but you can only claim it on that one day.

Hotel Chocolat – Free box of chocolates (worth £2ish)

When you’re next in a Hotel Chocolat shop, sign up to its new rewards scheme called VIPME and you’ll get a free box of chocolate to claim in store the whole month of your birthday – so plenty of time to get it.

Patisserie Valerie – Free cupcake (worth £2ish)

Patisserie Valerie’s ‘Cake Club‘ gets you a free cupcake to claim on your birthday. Cakes from here are usually quite expensive, and although it’s small – it’s a nice bonus.

Krispy Kreme – Free doughnut (worth £2ish)

Once you’re a member of ‘Friends of Krispy Kreme‘ – you get a free doughnut for signing up, a free doughnut on your birthday, and so does your significant other if you put their birthday in too. Valid in stores only, not Tesco concession stands.

Barburrito – Free burrito (worth £6.25)

You’ll need to get a loyalty card in store and register it online, and you’ll be rewarded with a free burrito on your birthday.

Ed’s Easy Diner – Free milkshake (worth £4.25)

If you have an Ed’s Easy Diner near you, sign up to Ed’s Club and you’ll receive a free milkshake on your birthday. Valid on normal shakes only (not deluxe) and must be claimed on your actual birthday.

Brewhouse & Kitchen – Free pint of beer (worth £3ish)

If you live near a Brewhouse & Kitchen, sign up to their newsletter (bottom of the page), you can get a free pint of beer emailed around the time of your birthday. You have a week to claim it.

Boost Juice – Free smoothie/juice (worth £5)

Have a Boost nearby? Get a ‘Vibe Card’ in store or sign up online and you’ll receive a free juice to use on your birthday only – so you’ll need to be on the ball with this one.

That’s all the ones that I could find (and have signed up to myself). Hopefully this gives you a little something extra to look forward to when you turn another year older. It’s worth signing up to them well in advance, as you might not get some if you sign up just before.

It may not be your birthday, but everyone can claim the McDonald’s deals running right now, as well as earn some money through linking your cards to Airtime Rewards.

Do you know of any birthday freebies I’ve missed? I’d love to know in the comments below, on Twitter @Jordon_Cox or on Facebook.
