How to Get Free Stuff on the Internet
Get Stuff for Free
Is it really possible to get stuff free online? It certainly is. I've been getting stuff free online for about 12 years. While the placed to get free stuff come and go, there has rarely been a dry spell in the amount of free items being offered online.
You can have the acquisition of free products as a hobby, as I have, or you can put a lot more time into the game to get free items in the mail every single day.
Free Sample Sites
Back when the Internet was new, there were just a few good free sample sites. Today, there are hundreds of sites that feature links to free items every day. However, not all of them are good.
I don't like sites that have a lot of free virtual items, like free ebooks or free wallpaper. I want to get free stuff that comes in the mail and that I can actually use. Real, physical free stuff saves you money on buying the same items in the store. That's what it's all about for me, so I don't like the free sites that offer a lot of virtual freebies or that push the same junk freebies every day because of a company sponsorship.
I also dislike free sample sites that are there to push "offers" rather than freebies. A freebie is something that is sent to you for free, end of story. An offer is one that you either have to pay for and then get a rebate for the price, or you have to sign up for a free membership and have to cancel the membership to avoid a monthly fee. In my opinion, a freebie doesn't require a credit card, and it isn't something virtual.
Free sample sites that out together real free samples are priceless for getting free stuff online. To get free stuff before companies reach their limits, check the following sites every day or two to see what's new in freebies.
- Walmart.com - Free Samples & Tools - In Stores Now
This is Wal-Mart's freebie page. There are usually four to six freebies at any one time. I usually get one of each to my home address, one to my P.O. box and then another to my home address and slightly misspell my home address.
There are a number of blogs that offer lots of free stuff online as well as information about how to get free stuff in stores. If you are interested in that, there are stores like CVS and Walgreens that offer deals that will get you free stuff or even make you money on your purchases. These blogs also include plenty of free samples and free offers that are available online.

- Thrifty Jinxy
A blog that has many, many free item listings as well as special deal listings that are compiled in one easy site.
Start Sampling is a site that collects a lot of freebies, including some great ones like free Restaurant.com gift certificates and free year-long magazine subscriptions. The site also gives you points every time you log in and look at the freebies ads. You can get free tote bags and t-shirts with the points.
Some of the freebies are the Wal-Mart site freebies, but most are other freebies that are very useful. I have at least two magazine subscriptions that were free through the site. I also regularly get snacks, laundry and beauty items, hygiene items and more.

There are a few marketing sites that send members free samples of imtes in exchange for marketing the items to tohe rpeople. This is usually just an agreement to tell other people about the items.
BzzAgent is a fun site that does send members free items to try out and tell people about. I've gotten makeup, home cleaning items, bug repellant and other items from the company.
Vocalpoint is another site that does give out free products, including makeup, food and other useful items. I've gotten coupons for free food items from them.
