Olympic freebies?

So far I've had
  1. A Union Jack pin from the Apple Store in Coventry Garden
  2. A Union Jack themed seaside rock style sweet from the Stratford London Overground staff
  3. An ice cream/lolly from the station staff at Waterloo

Anything else to look out for over the next fortnight?

As I'm rapidly discovering, it's all about the pins. Most major partners and broadcasters will give you one if you plead enough; though a lot of the time you'll need to swap for another one. (The Samsung pop-up shops in various locations around London are a good source of them)

I'm pretty sure I saw a dedicated pin exchange tent near the Orbit in the main Olympic Park.
