Internet Savings: Freebies

by Kay Lynn

 

This is part two in  series on saving money by using the Internet.  Part one was an overview.

Until I started reading blogs which would lead me to more blogs and so on (it’s a vicious circle) I had no idea there were so many free items available.  Not only are they free but most are things you might want and actually use. 

What types of things are free?  Last month I received 5 packs of a new gum and a magazine subscription.  It seems that there are opportunities for free food every week.  Last week was free brewed coffee from Starbucks and french fries at Jack in the Box. 

How do I learn about these freebies?  Sometimes I get emailed directly from the business by being on their mailing list but most of the time these come via blogs that focus on free (or nearly free) stuff.  Here’s a good list to get started.

1. Vocalpoint is a web community where free samples are just a part of what is offered. The best part is that the free samples just come in the mail not requiring me to sign up for every one. They also come with great coupons.

2. The Freebie Bloggerwas the first website I found dedicated to free things. Be sure to use the menu to find featured freebies as well as separate areas for freebies by mail, in-store or onine.

3. Free Sample Freak has a great name and also dishes out freebies. Be sure to look at her blog roll which lists other freebie sites you might want to check out.

4. Free Snatcher is a new (to me) blog I follow and often posts new items first (which is important for hot freebies).

These are just a few examples of the many sources who send or promote free items.  You’ll want to be judicious on the number of blogs you subscribe to as they publish many times a day as they learn about new offers. 

What’s your favorite site for freebies?

Mine is Wise Bread’s. They pick out the day’s top 20 deals and provide links. I have signed up for many of the products. I have yet to receive them (4-6 weeks shipping) haha but it looks like the deals are legit. Here’s the link http://www.wisebread.com/bestdeals
