Amazon Vine Freebies -February 2014

In February the food feast continued, but Amazon decided I needed to start burning off all that Christmas fat by offering me an assortment of fitness related treats. It also saw the pleasing return of the free DVD.


A nice, understated psych-drama with a strong cast, this won’t be one for everyone, but will be of interest for anyone who enjoys slow-burning thrillers, thought-provoking dramas, and cross-dressing Irishmen.

Not For Parents Europe: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know:

A Lonely Planet/Horrible Histories style book aimed at pre-teens covering some of Europe’s most important figures and moments. Lots of interesting information delivered in a bright and breezy manner, with plenty of gruesome tidbits to keep kids engaged.

Perfect Fitness AB Carver Pro Ultrawide Wheel – Black, Size 1:

It took a while for me to understand what the hell this was and how it worked, and after realizing I had put the handles on upside-down, I was finally able to start using it. Actually provides a stern workout, but you will look like a tool using it, especially beside the motorway if that is somewhere you would choose to workout. It’s extra wide too, meaning you can mow down both the cat and dog.

Alpen Fruit & Nuts Trail Bar 48g x 3 (Pack of 11, 33 bars in total):

Sore on the jaw, but good for the soul – Alpen!

Amazon Vine Freebies – January 2014

As regular glancers may be aware, Christmas here was a time of much free food from the Vine Overlords, but not much in the way of expensive electronics or toys. That’s fine, because it’s important to eat over the festive period, and it’s good to have a bit of variety other than turkey, chocolate, and snowmen. My December, and January lists were heavy on the stomach treats, here’s January’s loot:

Alpen Raspberry 560 g (Pack of 6):

Itchy scratchy tasty.

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Essentials Starter Kit:

A really great set with everything you need for your impending arrival (assuming it’s a human baby).

Alpen Light Cherry Bakewell Bars 19 g (Pack of 5):

Also yum

In the words of Nobby – ITTT’S CHRIIIIIIIIISSTMMAAAAAAAASSSSSS! Or at least, it was 7 months ago. Way back then, the Jolly Old Bearded Vine Man let me place my hands on his huge sack, and when I squeezed it, I got a face-full of treats! Look:
