How To Get Free Things!

Before I start this I should warn you that once you start getting all those freebies it can be addictive. Getting free things is pretty fun and makes you feel special. You will be going to your mailbox everyday and end up looking like this:




To start, you should have a separate email because freebies frequently want an email and sometimes want a confirmation. You wont want your regular email account getting overwhelmed by "your freebie is on the way!" messages when you are looking for an email from a friend. This is easy to do and with a little effort will pay off BIG.

Next, some free site links:

Free Magazines:

https://www.recyclebank.com/ (learn about recycling get points for free magazines)
http://www.rewardsgold.com/ (take surveys)

A few more tips. 

Pay attention, You never know when you will see a freebie.

Make your own freebie. Get creative with coupons and offers. (I will talk more about this later because there are many great ways to use what you have to get freebies)

Just ask! Go email that makeup or skincare line your interested in. Tell them that you want to try some but not splurge on something you've never tried out. Ask "Can I have a sample?" what have you got to lose?

Enter sweepstakes. Remember that email you made earlier? Use it to enter contests. I could write a whole post of its own on this one but it has to be included because I have gotten so many of my free things by winning contests!

Have fun with it and enjoy yourself! Remember that like anything else the more effort you put in the more you can benefit.  

This is meant to be a basic introduction to getting freebies. I will be doing a series of posts like this and will add to this list when I think of more. I will also continue to post on this topic with more detailed advice, new freebie offers, freebies that I receive, and anything I think will be helpful and fun for you!

  1. Thanks for the information. Do you have to 'register' or start an account on any of these sites. It gets tiring after a while, since so many sites are set up that way now.

    1. for some you do :( like pinchme. But the main one I use is http://www.ilovefreethings.com/ and you dont. I subscribe to the rss and check periodically throughout the day. I would recomend that personally as its the easiest.

  12. Here in Canada it is a bit harder. A lot of the freebie sites don't really offer or deliver here...and we don't have as many freebees or great coupons here.
