3. ORCA – https://www.referandsave.co.uk/orca/

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

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. 🙂
