Trading 212 PROMO CODE: FMStoXkl

THERE ARE 4 OTHER APPS WHICH OFFER FREE SHARES WHEN REGISTERING FOR A NEW ACCOUNT – TRADING 212 ARE CURRENTLY NOT TAKING ON NEW CUSTOMERS.
1. FREETRADE – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/freetrade/
2. STAKE – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/stake/
3. ORCA – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/orca/
4. PASSFOLIO – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/passfolio/

Use the link above – it might not look like it has activated for a free share but it will have. If after registering you do not get a free share then you can manually add the promo code directly in the app.

Over the last 18 or so months (and especially the last 12 with lockdowns in place) more of us have begun using online fintech apps and one of the best ones out there is Trading 212. I originally heard about T212 after speaking to a friend in the US who raved about Robinhood which unfortunately was not available in the UK. After researching the best alternatives in the UK I came across Trading 212.

Now there are a number of apps in the UK which offer a similar service (you can see them on my blog) but I will be honest and up front and tell you that none of these are as good as Trading 212. The app is fantastic, clear and simple to use and the community forum is excellent. If you are new to stocks and shares then I would suggest you start slowly – but Trading 212 is an excellent choice for the beginner.

Now for my 2nd honesty point. I was originally attracted by the Trading 212 Promo code which offered a free share – who wouldn’t be ? But these guys have the right idea as they know the service offering once you have had your free share will mean you will come back and make further use of the app! I know I did :-). I am truly addicted and check how my shares are doing everyday. This was not a completely planned but I have seen my shares rise over the past few months and I’ve loved that feeling. (disclaimer: Shares can go up and DOWN)

Up until I started using the Trading 212 app I had rarely thought about stocks and shares. I’m not afraid to say that I’m a relative novice when it comes to investing. That said I’ve spent the last few months using the Trading 212 app and understanding and researching everything I can and I’m enjoying the journey. I have a feeling I will be creating a more detailed blog taking you on my trading 212 journey during 2021. Keep an eye out from the beginning of Feb 21 for a weekly blog on the process of my shares…

So to begin – I started buying shares at a relatively volatile time (just as CV19 lockdown was implemented in the UK)I will be honest – Originally I was unsure if this was the platform for me – but the offer of a free share (worth upto £100) for investing £1 perked my interest and I had a new account setup very quickly after providing some documents online to verify my identity. (You too can get a free share by clicking through the link above – just make sure you choose to open and INVEST or ISA account to receive your free share)

The following day I had a share for £81.76 for Paypal – and as of updating this page on the 15/01/21 the share price of that one share is £175.94 🙂 . Not bad if you ask me. I can safely say that the Trading 212 referral scheme is probably the best scheme I have blogged about on my website. (that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out some of my other referral schemes)

Since then I have begun purchasing shares myself. I started off few shares in Barclays bank followed by Metro Bank and Lloyds just to get a hang of the share buying process. I’ve gradually started buying more shares in various companies as its just so easy on the trading 212 app.

I have received a number of free shares along the way from referring other people. My highest value shares other than Paypal have been Astra Zeneca and I got 2 @ roughly £68 each but I have really enjoyed spending my own money and buying more as the weeks have progressed.

My current portfolio is shown below… I have purchased some of these and received some free from the using the referral scheme. You will get one free share for using the link above and then you will also get an link of your own to refer your friends and family.

I will update you all as my portfolio increases over the coming months. But you can see what I have right now and how I’m currently doing :-). Not bad for a complete newbie huh!

You should expect to see a lot more posts from me over the coming months specifically related to my investments and my thoughts on both my portfolio as it grows (hopefully) and my reviews of the various share dealing platforms out there. Yes this blog was originally ONLY about referral codes but I think I’ve found something else to write about that I think you guys will be interested in!

I will be setting up a separate BLOG page just covering my progress on Trading 212 – Expect to see that in the coming days!

I just referred one of my oldest friends and she got a share in Astra Zeneca too so I don’t think I’ve been especially lucky. . . Good luck and happy trading 🙂 – Don’t forget if you use the link above you are welcome to leave a comment below with your promo code for others to use. xx

WHEN YOU INVEST YOUR CAPITAL IS AT RISK

Don’t forget to check out my blog for other FREE share trading accounts:
1. Trading 212 which lists worldwide shares and has an offer for a free share worth up to £100 when registering using an invite link – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/trading212/
2. Orca is the new UK trading platform which offers a free share worth up to £200 when you deposit £50. https://www.referandsave.co.uk/orca/
3. Stake which is a share dealing account for UK, US, AUS users which offers a FREE stock in NIKE, DROPBOX or GO PRO on a lucky wheel spin – www.referandsave.co.uk/stake/
4. Passfolio which is a US share dealing account for worldwide residents and offers of free stock worth upto $100 – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/passfolio/

So recently I have started to dabble in the stock market and have been buying a few shares. I’m no Wolf of Wall Street but the lockdown in the UK has meant I have had more time on my hands to research and understand a little more about how the stock market operates and how I can get more involved.

I have been using the Trading 212 app for most of my share buying as I downloaded that first and never really felt the need to try anything else. But a few weeks ago I was told about another app called Freetrade which I have now downloaded and have begun using at the same time as Trading 212.

And I’m starting to really like the Freetrade app! Pretty sure this is the future of share dealing at least for me anyway! The app is fantastic and so easy to use. And for some reason it makes buying shares fun. And one of the best bits is if you use a Freetrade share referral link like the one listed above you get a free stock worth up to £200 which is amazing 🙂

Much like Trading 212 if you refer a friend to the Freetrade platform you can get a randomly selected free share to start your share buying journey. The share can be valued at any price between £3 and £200 and I have found the majority of my shares are about £6 or £7 although I have received a couple of £30 valued shares as well. An early example of the shares I have received are shown below and since then I have begun to purchase a number of shares myself

You can see I have purchased some shares in Lloyds which was my first purchase on Freetrade when I was getting to know the app. I have purchased quite a few shares since then which are further up in the screenshot. Keep an eye out for an article in the next few weeks detailing my holding and how I am doing… I’d love to take you on my investment journey as I think this will be where I will be putting my savings over the coming years.

Free shares aside – Did I mention the biggest benefit of using Freetrade? Unlike some of the more established share platform you can buy whatever shares you want in whatever quantity you choose without incurring commission charges! Previously buying shares meant spending large amounts paying the commission charges for every trade completed. This is where Freetrade is different. There are no commission fees to pay! :-). I like buying a few cheap shares in different company’s so it helps that they don’t charge these fees. The comparison table should give you an idea on the fees compared to some of their direct competitors.

Remember for an added bonus if you use my Freetrade referral link above you get a FREE SHARE worth up to £200. I have already referred a few friends and I have received shares ranging from £3 – £36 . Okay maybe not quite £200 but they are FREE. 🙂

STAKE – FREE SHARE in Nike, Go Pro or Dropbox

Stake referral code: faisaln428

Register for a Stake share dealing account and use referral code: faisaln428 or using the following link:

https://hellostake.com/referral-program?referrer=faisaln428

Get a FREE share in either NIKE, GO PRO or DROPBOX – You need to deposit $50 within 24 hours to get your FREE STOCK

Totally on fire with all these new apps coming out offering FREE shares and commission free trading. Came across STAKE today and fell in love with the user experience compared to some of the others out there. This is another app that allows you to buy stocks and share in the US for users in the UK, New Zealand and Australia.

Registration is very easy and by following the referral code link above it auto-populates in the registration screen. Otherwise you can manually enter the code: faisaln428 in the appropriate field to ensure you get a free share. Once registered you need to complete a few of the usual verification questions (was quicker than the verification process at my 3 other share trading account which provide free shares (Trading 212, Freetrade & Passfolio) and I was done in about 5 minutes.

You then get a countdown timer letting you know you need to deposit funds to get your free stock/share within 24 hours. I have seen various amounts posted about the minimum payment you need to make but to be safe I used my Revolut card to deposit £60 and this was authorised immediately.

After that I was presented with a wheel spin to get my free share. There are only 3 shares possible shares with varying probabilities and on the spin I got a free share in Nike – WOOHOOO. At the time or writing Nike is worth $96 or about £76. Winner 🙂

Stake FREE SHARE referral code: faisaln428

The app itself is quirkier than all the others I have used previously. Its bold and brash and I like it a lot. I obviously haven’t used it much yet as the funds are still being added but I will be buying a few shares over the coming weeks and will let you know my first impressions.

But straight off the bat I like the registration process and the free stock offer which seems more generous than some of the other apps I have downloaded. Although there are only 3 stocks available the probabilities are higher than what I have seen with the others. The downsides I have seen so far are that its obviously only US stocks AND they seem to charge a transaction fee of about $9 to deposit and remove funds from your account. Please bear that in mind when joining.

UPDATE 01/03/21: The latest offer showing on the Ola website is FREE £5 ride credit plus 3 * 50% discount vouchers:

If you are a DRIVER looking to work for OLA then use the same referral code when registering to get a bonus payment when you have completed the agreed number of customer drops : LB268S

If you haven’t already noticed I’m a bit of a PRINCESS when it comes to public transport and my blog is littered with cost saving hacks to make cab rides as cheap as possible :-). My latest cab blog is about the free ride offer currently active at the new kid on the block . . . . Ola Cabs.

I’ve been working in Birmingham these last few months and Ola, one of the world’s largest ride-hailing platforms, has launched in the UK (and more specifically in Birmingham for me) ​and  gives passengers a new and convenient way to hail a black cab or private hire vehicle. Think of it as the new Uber with more competitive pricing 🙂

​Ola launched in Bristol in mid 2018 and has steadily begun increasing the areas it provides it’s services. Currently it operates ride-hailing services in five regions that cover several of the UK’s bigger cities: South Wales (Cardiff, Newport and Vale of Glamorgan), the South West (Bath, Bristol, Exeter, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire), Merseyside (Knowsley, Liverpool, Sefton, St Helens and The Wirral), West Midlands (Birmingham, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall and Wolverhampton, Coventry & Warwickshire) and Reading and will soon to be launching in London.

I hadn’t heard of Ola until I saw the cabs driving around Birmingham – so downloaded the app to see how I got on. The first thing I noticed was that most of the drivers who  picked me up were actually Uber drivers as well so you can expect pretty much the same driver/passenger experience.

UK Ola Cab Referral Code: 0YK2G2U

But what’s actually great about Ola service is the prices. You can see I have highlighted a referral code above. Use this when joining and before making your first booking and you will get your 1st ride free (upto £10) and your next 5 rides at half price (upto £5 off each) . What’s more I have found that over the past few weeks I have received notifications through the Ola app offering me discounts of between 25 – 40 % on a regular basis. So you can bet the service is cheaper than Uber!

Oh and Ola is the only app that can be used by both black cabs and Private Hire Vehicles (PHVs), giving you a greater choice when you fly or get a train into a public transfort hub

In India, Ola is the dominant ride-hailing service provider. In addition to the U.K. other markets where it operates outside of its home country are Australia (where it has services in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra and the Gold Coast) and New Zealand (Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch). More countries will be launching soon!

I dont want new Ola drivers to miss out – so below you will find a driver app referral code to use which gives you a bonus on your first few driver bookings. The coupon code to use is : 0YK2G2U

Surprisingly from all my blog posts this one has been one of my most popular. But I’ve been asked a number of questions on email over and over again – so I thought I would add the answers below. Just remember I’m just a gal who takes a few too many Ola cabs – I’m no a cab expert 😉
