Some Legit Things You Can Get For FREE + Tips Before Signing Up For Freebies Online

free-signMost of the following FREE offers have no expiration date.

For those with expiration dates, you’ll want to act quickly because those special offers usually don’t last long. Time-sensitive freebies are usually only around long enough for the company to generate some quick buzz and added publicity for their product.

Personally, I’m not fond of the type of freebies where you have to enter a contest or buy something in order to get the FREE item.

For that reason, I mostly share completely FREE, no expiration date offers here.

Okay, ready to see the FREE stuff?…

 

Everything Here Is FREE For The Asking!

You just have to know where to look.

Following is just a sampler of the types of things you can find for free all year long.

The best sites to find items like these are listed below.

  • 10 FREE top-of-the-line, screen printed vinyl decals of the American Flag (…these are high-quality outdoor grade and rated for a 5 year life span.)
  • FREE ASPCA pet emergency alert sticker & FREE pet safety pack
  • FREE sample of Rachel Ray’s Nutrish dog food
  • FREE samples & coupons of Olay facial products
  • FREE samples from Walmart (…these change frequently, so keep checking!)

 

You should know… I am not in the habit of sharing “good deals” and “free offers” just for the heck of it.

In fact, when it comes to the Internet, I’m quite leery of the word FREE altogether since there’s usually a catch┬áin the end.

That said, I have found each of the above to be 100% legit offers. And I signed up for all of them myself.

 

Before You Sign Up For FREE Offers…

If you choose to participate in free offers like these online, keep in mind:

Each of the above “freebies” is being offered by a reputable major corporation (Olay, Rachel Ray, ASPCA, etc.), and that is the primary factor that I use when deciding whether or not to respond to a FREE offer… any FREE offer. If the company is standing behind the offer, then it’s legit.

With most of the 3rd-party sites that “redirect” you to FREE offers, you never really know what you’re getting. Odds are, you’re just increasing your odds of being place on lots of e-mail and snail mail SPAM lists. (Sometimes major corporations will use a 3rd party organization to handle their marketing efforts, including free samples.)

Some of the FREE offers above require that you complete their online survey or “register” on their site first. While some people might see this as a slight inconvenience, it’s relatively harmless. My advice…

Use a secondary e-mail account, rather than your primary e-mail account for this purpose. Heck, many people even make up fake info for online registrations like this. (That’s fine sometimes, but remember, they’re going to be sending you something that you requested… so they’ll need a legit home address. I usually just use my first initial instead of my whole name, and I always make up a phone number when it’s required.)

Finally, unless you absolutely LOVE the company whose offer you’re responding to, then use a secondary (non-primary) e-mail address (even a “fake” or “temporary” one will work). Why? Because you can almost bet, if a company’s got your e-mail address, and you’ve already shown a slight interest in their products (by registering for this FREE offer)… then they’ll most likely want to let you know about some of their other great products in the future. Again… relatively harmless, but could be a nuisance to some.

 

The Best FREE Stuff Online

Where do I find most of my FREE offers, you ask? Well, if you’re like me, you will bookmark the following websites.

These sites share only reputable FREE offers online:

 

Find Freebies Where You Live

Finally, there are a number of other ways to get free stuff locally — right where you live.

  • My all-time favorite is Freecycle. (I’ve been using this for years and in 2 different towns were I’ve lived.)
  • Another popular way to find freebies in your area is Craigslist. (You’ll find “FREE” under the For Sale category.)
  • Listia is a fun way to give and receive FREE stuff. (You start with 500 free credits when you sign up.)

    Am looking for the easiest way to get free coupons and food and also supplements. Anything useful and free. I am a household that is on a limited income and I nd my youngest have illness. I dont have time for surveys and long forms to fill out. I guess I wouldnt mind doing the paying sipping for free stuff or SASE type things. I need quick access to websites that give useful free items or shipping. Thank you. I would prefer to get a money order coz I can get one ordered from my mailbox at the road.

    hi Lyn, thanks for providing the list but as you can see that trial period or free samples have their expiration period hence you cannot really expect the product listed to be available all the time.
