Freebie Resources

Let's face it, everyone loves free stuff. But not everyone knows where to go online to aquire free things.
Here are my 7 favorite resources for finding free samples, magazines, music etc. Most of these sites offer a completely free newsletter which can be sent directly to your email. Signing up for the news letters is a good idea because that way you don't have to remember to visit each site daily. If you have a blog you can also consider using the links in the newsletters to offer your readers freebies they might enjoy.

1. - a great resource and a wonderful place to get you started on your trek to find free things. FreeCycle is an online network of over 4,000 groups and millions of members. Membership is free, just as all of the items listed in the groups are free. You are allowed to make requests for specific items you may need or want as well. It's also a great place to get rid of things you may no longer want.

2. - Each month they have a contest for their news letter subscribers. This months prize is Bora Bora Perfume by Liz Claiborne. To participate just select the free news letters that interest you. I of course enjoy the "free stuff" news letter.

3.'s Stuff I Found Forum - A forum that is updated daily by members that post free things they have found online. Volition also has another great section to their forums called "Earning Opportunities". I love this site.

4. - A site that has a comprehensive list of freebies, contests and other "cool" stuff. Sign up for their newsletter and have a list sent to you daily that will include the newest online freebie finds. What's also cool is that once you sign up for their newsletter you are entered in a contest to win a $50 Amazon gift card.

5. FreeStuffTimes - A list of Freebies that is updated daily. Also offers a section on current online contests, coupons and rebates. I check this site daily.

6. - Their site has tons of free offers. Sign up for their news letter and have the newest freebies sent directly to your email address.

7. FreeFlys - Offers FREE samples of brand name products as well as coupons with membership which is also free. This site has been featured on a couple of local TV news programs.
