Few things will brighten your day like scoring a freebie. Seriously, your house can look like a tornado hit it and your child can be acting like an escaped lunatic and an Internet freebie will still make you smile. (At least for a second.)
Unfortunately, if you aren’t well versed in frugal finagling, those amazing freebies can be downright elusive. That’s where I come in. Over the last few years I’ve made it my job to scour the online and offline world for the very best deals, money saving tips, and of course, freebies. By far, Internet freebies are the easiest freebies to snag. Sure, some stores give stuff away but you typically have to jump through a lot hoops to get the good stuff. On the other hand, the Internet is full of freebies that you can snap up with a just few key strokes.
Ready to start hunting down your own Internet freebies? Great, here are 3 tips to get you started:
#1 – Connect with Internet freebie pros
There are plenty of sites out there, ahem Freebie Finding Mom, that specialize in dishing up Internet freebies. Find your favorite sites and check back regularly. Subscribe to their newsletter like Freebie Finding Mom’s, follow them on social media, and come back to the site frequently to make sure you never miss out on an Internet freebie.
#2 – Connect with the brand
If there are specific brands you can’t get enough of, connect with them by subscribing to their newsletter and following their social media accounts. Doing so will help ensure you never miss one of their Internet freebies.
#3 – Ask and you shall receive
Is there a new product you’re dying to try? Ask the brand for a free sample. Thanks to the Internet reaching out to a brand is super easy. Many of them have contact us pages, social media accounts that are actively monitored, and even online chat services. Ask them for a freebie and often they’re willing to help you out or at least give you a coupon.
