Free! Ahhh, I love that word! There are tons of things you can get for free that you probably didn’t know about! Here is a look at some items that you should never pay for, many of which will surprise you!
If you’re willing to give up some information about yourself (like your career title or location) you can get a free year’s subscription to a variety of magazines from companies that want to know about you so they can market to you. We post hundreds of free magazine offers monthly!
Skype & Google Voice let you make calls for free over the Internet. They will try to upgrade you to a paid plan though. This could replace your landline if it meets your calling needs.
There are a ton of MP3 credit freebies we see bundled with Amazon deals, so you should be able to stockpile a ton of music. You’ll also see daily we post free music downloads on our website.
Free apps are everywhere. We share them up every day! Even the typically expensive titles will offer a price drop…. sometimes you just have to be patient!
If you can wait on products, take advantage of free shipping orders. A ton of retailers will offer a shipping discount or free shipping at one time or another. Again, patience is the key.
Often you can get free digital books that can be read on a computer, tablet, or eBook reader. We post free kindle downloads often. You can also check out Project Gutenberg, which has more than 39,000 free eBooks; downloading the Free Books app for the iPad, which offers 23,469 classics; and searching for “0.00”on the Barnes & Noble Nook.
Physical Books- Consider swapping with sites such as PaperBack Swap and Bookmooch which allow you to mail your books to members who request them, and then you can request books from others that you’d like to read. The more books you give, the more you can receive. These sites are free to join, but the sender does pay postage.
Your cable TV bill can be a thing of the past after a few start up expenses. Amazon Prime members can buy a Roku or other media streaming device and stream TV and movies via Amazon Instant Video. If your HDTV doesn’t come preloaded with apps, consider buying a cable to connect your computer to the TV to watch free shows on Hulu, FX, or other stations that stream free TV shows online.
Kids Eat Free
Many restaurants offer free meals for kids if they’re accompanied by a paying adult. However, some do so only on certain nights, so it’s worth checking with your favorite restaurant. I also have a list of Kids Eat Free deals too!
There are plenty of businesses that offer free things on your special day. The trick is to plan ahead and hit as many of them as you can. Start here with my Birthday Freebies list!
Travel-Sized Toiletries, Grooming Products & Food Products
Many health and beauty companies offer free samples, and like free magazines, you’ll have to offer up some personal information to get the goods. Keep an eye out for free samples from Target and Walmart! Individual brands also offer free samples of new products they’re trying to promote! Just check out my Free Tab on the top of the page where you can quickly fill up your mailbox with freebies!
Thanks Deal News for the inspiration!
