Learn new things
You can learn lots of new skills on the internet for free just by searching for information on the topic in to a search engine such as Google. But if you want to spend the extra time and money, you will also find online courses which are cheaper than a course you may attend at a college and the course is done entirely online. At the end of the course you will even receive a qualification and certificate like you would do at a college too, so there is not disadvantage to doing it all online. But if you just want to learn something new online for free, then there are still lots of information on the net. You can find written information, audio clips, e-books, podcasts, video tutorials and other downloadable materials.


Shop Online
Not online can you shop online, but you can compare prices and have any shopping delivered to your door for free. There are many great online stores where you will be able to find exactly what you're looking for.

Play games

Send Good Wishes
Don't worry if you have forgotten to send a Birthday or Christmas card to your colleague/friend/relative, because you can send them an e-card instead. There are hundreds or even thousands of e-cards available at e-card websites so you are sure to find the right one for the right person. When you know which one you want, all you have to do is to type in the email address of the recipient and a message to go with the card and you're done!

Sell Online
We don't like to admit it but sometimes we do get unwanted Christmas presents, which end up collecting dust because we never use them. Instead, you should sell them on e-Bay. E-Bay is an online auction where you can buy and sell more or less anything. If you have never tried e-Bay then here is a word of warning - it is great but addictive. In fact, in the world of e-Bay it is much better to be a seller rather than a buyer, because the bidding can become very exciting and addictive and is far too easy to spend all the cash that you've earned on another e-Bay item!

Cheap Tickets Online
Cheap flights, concert tickets and discounts on a range of amusements can be found on the internet. Book cheap plain tickets with one of the budget flight companies, get cheap tickets to the latest concerts before others can and get great discount on different tourist attractions through printable tickets and coupons which are available online.
