How to Get Free Stuff at Hunt4Freebies and Other Bargain Websites
Free is good. It is fun, makes my shopping genes happy, and gives a break to my wallet. While you generally won’t be able to get everything for free, there are a lot of resources out there to get you just enough free stuff to make bargain shopping worthwhile.
The Deals at Hunt 4 Freebies
Bargain shopping is a sport, and the website Hunt 4 Freebies helps you to find those great last deals and freebies. The deals are updated as products run out, companies withdraw offers, and users of the site report back on the availability. You can find everything from a free serving of Chilled Berry Almond Swiss Oatmeal from the Corner Bakery Café to free samples of diapers and toothpaste (and a whole jackpot of everything in between). I love to claim a few random free offers and keep them in my gift box to add to packages or to donate to the program at our church that supplies homeless people with necessities (diapers and formula, soap, toothpaste, etc.).
How to Sign up for Freebies
Each offer from Hunt 4 Freebies comes with its own rules and regulations for claiming your free item. Some of the offers are available by “Liking” the product on Facebook, others require an email entry, and some come through taking surveys and receiving coupons or gift cards in return. The time it takes to apply for these free items ranges from a few seconds to several minutes – and your investment in time probably has to be balanced between the fun of just getting something for free and the practical worthwhile experience of getting to test a product before investing in a larger quantity.
Tips for Signing up for Free Stuff Online
There are tons of opportunities to receive things online, and Hunt 4 Freebies is just one of many. If you have a few minutes each day to sign up for free offers (it can be a hobby for some), consider some of these tips to make the most of your efforts.
- Get an email account devoted just to free offers. Many of the offers require an email registration – this way your offers won’t get mixed in with the reminders about your car insurance, the invitation for your class reunion, and the notes from your child’s teachers. It will also save on the junk mail experience.
- Read the fine print. Many times you need to submit your name, home address, and contact information in order to receive the free items or coupons by mail. Read the fine print on the offers to make sure that they aren’t going to be collecting and selling or distributing this information to other vendors.
- Adjust your Facebook settings. One of the current trends is to “Like” something on Facebook and receive a free coupon or item in return for your public endorsement and advertisement. The catch can be that unless you adjust your settings, everyone who sees your Facebook wall can see that you just “Liked” the hemorrhoid cream (even if you’re just ordering it to test those puffy under-eye treatments all of the magazines are talking about). Use the dropdown menus on your Facebook timeline to control who sees your activities – and so that your Facebook friends don’t think that the only thing you do all day is search for freebies!
- If the link at Hunt 4 Freebies doesn’t open when you click on it, try a right click and then select “open in new tab”. This will allow a new window open where you can complete the offer and then go back to Hunt 4 Freebies.
- If Hunt 4 Freebies doesn’t have what you like, try going directly to your favorite manufacturer to see if they have any online offers.
