Coffee#1 – FREE Drink by registering with link

Use the link above to register for the Coffee#1 app and get a FREE DRINK after you have made your 1st purchase

Here’s another coffee app that offers free drinks when you use a referral link and register. The coffee#1 app is a loyalty system which is designed to allow customers to collect stamps and earn free drinks. You can even link a payment card for faster payment and exclusive discounts.

So I love coffee. . . . most of you guys will know that already if you have been reading my blog. I spend most of my time at Costa as its near my home but also directly outside my office so it’s hard not to use it for convenience! I also use Caffe Nero every now and then and I’ve noticed the similarities between the coffee#1 app and the Caffe Nero app (they are exactly the same!)

I decided to visit my local coffee#1 when it opened to see what it was like and I have to say – it was fantastic. The coffee was great but it was the food that made the biggest impression on me here! Unlike most of the other coffee shops on this blog – coffee#1 really has a huge range of cakes, pastries and savoury snacks to try!


So I can see me having a bite to eat whilst typing my next blog post with my coffee the next time I’m passing by…. oh and my local has some extremely friendly staff too… So – download the app by following the referral link above and you should get a FREE drink added to your account after you make your first purchase. Enjoy 🙂

The Personal Barber Referral – 10% Discount

Use the link above to get 10% off your order – If you purchase the starter box you will get a free razor and brush included.

The web seems to be full of subscription boxes and I am currently running a couple of different ones myself! Most of us are naturally suspicious of subscription boxes because we feel like we will be tied into a year long subscriptions like the old days at the gym!

So to start with The Personal Barber club is very easy to cancel or pause – its literally one click! – Now that we we have that out the way – lets get to the product itself! 🙂

I ordered this for my partner as he loves trying out different razors and I have been meaning to find him an ‘old skool’ razor which uses individual blades and this one seemed like a good option. Highly rated with lots of products to try. I used a referral code to get 10& off the order and you can too using the link :

Promo code:

When the first box arrived – the quality of the contents was amazing. Definitely wort the £22.50 I paid and my guy loved the weightiness and quality of the razor. He is already looking at some of the other items available to purchase on the website.

It’s worth noting that he is now a convert to traditional shaving. . . he is even thinking about getting a cut throat razor as he says that the shave is closer and the cost is a fraction of what you would pay with a modern razor.

I will update this blog when he has ordered another box from The Personal Barber as I think he is looking at a range of other items … 🙂

I love pizza. What girl doesn’t? And when a new ‘indie’ chain opened a branch in my neighbourhood we had to go check it out. The vibe was fresh, the drinks were fantastic and the sourdough pizza was amazing.

Sponge Discount Code: REF062772

Use discount code: REF062772 to get 20% off your first order.

I came across this website when looking for an interesting birthday card to send to one of my closest friends. I wanted something a little different to make her smile as I wasn’t going to be able to visit her in person under the covid lockdown restrictions 🙁

I sent chocolate and carrot as those two are my favourites!

Sadly I don’t have a picture of my exact order but it did look something like the below:

Sponge referral code: REF062772
Use discount code: REF062772

20% off using: REF062772

She loved the cake. . . . the loved the card. So I know I will be using these guys again the future if I needed a slightly different type of gift to send.

Its worth noting that they have a cake club subscription service which gives you free delivery on your orders and discounted products but you would need to eating a lot of cake or planning on sending a lot of cakes and cake cards !

Give these guys a go if and watch the smile on the recipients face 🙂 – Not forgetting these guys do sell complete sponge cakes (8 slices) if you wanted to buy one of those !

WorldRemit Referral Code for FREE £20: FAISALN76


Use the referral code above or click the link when registering at WorldRemit to get £20 cashback after making your first transfer of £100 or more. Dont forget to add 3FREE in the promo box just before payment to get free transactions fees on your first 3 transfers

I’ve used a number of money transfer services over the last few years (some good and some not so good) but I have never been as impressed as I was with Worldremit! These guys really know what they are doing 🙂

From the initial offer of £20 cashback when using a referral code (my referral code is: FAISALN76) to how quick and easy it was to register and finalyl the speed of delivery . . . WOW

So I registered earlier today and sent some money to a friend in India. Registering was pretty simple and I made sure I used the referral code to ensure I got some money back for use on my second order.

worldremit referral code: FAISALN76
Worldremit referral code: FAISALN76

So here’s the crazy thing. Once registered I was actually able to pay bills for my friend directly from my app here in the UK. I haven’t used this service yet but it means I can pay for my grandparents whenever I want in the future – Woohoo!

Anyway I chose the normal option of sending money – adding the amount I wanted to send. The rate was similar to what I had seen elsewhere – really no better no worse and then chose whether to send as airtime or as a bank deposit. I chose bank deposit and clicked submit. The payment was delivered in seconds. . . . literally seconds!

If it is as easy as that – I’m sticking with Worldremit in the future. Don’t get me wrong the other services available (some of which I recommend here) are fantastic. But some ask to add ID and verify the recipients details and then can take a few hours which is no great hardship. But this transfer literally took seconds. I’m impresssed Worldremit. I’m impressed.

Don’t forget you can use my worldremit invite code / referral code: FAISALN76 to get £20 cashback after your first money transfer.

Hive £30 Discount Code: Hayley Duster

Use referral code: Hayley Duster

Use referral code Hayley Duster in the referred by a friend box during checkout at Hive Home or click the HIVE logo above to get a discount code by email. Applies to purchases of Hive Active Heating (with hub only), Hive View Indoor or Hive View Outdoor as a new customer at Hive Home.

I’ve never really been ‘techy’ like my little brother and the latest gadgets never really interested me…. but when my dad bought me a smart thermostat when I moved into my new apartment I thought I would get it connected (although I didn’t think I would need it) – How wrong I was!

The hive system is one of a number of new smart home thermostat systems – the other main players being NEST and Tado although there are plenty of other entrants to the market.

I won’t go into all the details of the benefits of the Hive system here as there are plenty of other sites which can give you a far more in depth review than I ever could… I’m still figuring out how I can make best use of mine 🙂

What I will say is that they currently have an offer on the Hive Home website whereby if you enter my name during the checkout process (Haley Duster) then you will get £30 off your order ! You can alternatively click the HIVE logo at the top of this page and get a unique discount code emailed to you.

Referral code: Hayley Duster or click HIVE logo at the top to get a unique discount code

I use my hive for the obvious – setting the time and temperature when i want my heating to come on… but I also use it to turn the heating on/off directly from the app when I am not home – but I have just set up geolocation so it turns the heating on when I’m on my way home! How cool is that!

Right now there’s an offer for a free Amazon Echo (not sure how long it will last) but that means I can now control my heating with my voice too… I am looking to buy some of the hive lamps and I’m also looking at the hive camera. If they are nearly as good as the thermostat then I’m all sold on the Hive ecosystem.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. What is the Hive Home referral code?
You can enter Hayley Duster in the referred by a friend box during checkout or you can click the HIVE logo at the top of this website to get a unique code sent to you.

2. What are the terms and conditions on the Hive discount code?
