I have been a Freebie Hunter & getting “free stuff”, since I was a young child – long before the Internet was available! So, u could say, I am well & truly addicted to it!
This Post will list URLs to Websites that I recommend using for your Freebie Hunting! I am going to add to the list, as I find the sites amongst my vast list of Bookmarks! So, for the moment, the list of URLs in this Post is not complete! I suggest you might Bookmark this post. I will not be changing the date on this post, each time I update – but it has definitely been updated since April 27th 2008!
I wish ALL companies would be really active in samples & freebies. They could surely claim it on tax & I guarantee they would find their products would get even more buyers, so that’s a positive for them & the consumer. With the cost of living as high as it is, who really wants to buy full size products just to trial.
I have actually bought so many things over the years, only after trying a sample.
With the amount of allergic reactions, caused by things such as Food & Beauty Products – sampling is the only way to know if something is suitable for u, & if u even like it. It is also best to trial a product at home with no sales pressure & to see a better result. So, I think mailing out samples is the best option & also better than having to take a coupon to a store.
I honestly think, some of us Master Freebie Hunters would do a better job at setting up sample & trial campaigns much better than some companies do.
I really like the companies that offer sample boxes with numerous items for a reasonable purchase price. More companies should seriously do that!
I also love when u get a replica miniature version of the real size product & not just a tiny sachet.
I am also a real sucker for buying the Magazines at the Newsagency with Free Gifts!
If only all companies & marketing departments truly realised what they are doing right & wrong with consumers!
My Pet Peeve is GREEDY People who – get more than one of the same item (often under false names etc), get something they will never use, just for the sake that it is free (& so often other genuinely interested people then miss out) or complain about the size & so forth of a freebie! I feel the same as above about Competitions too. I have never entered a competition for something I did not want or need.
Now, a bit of advice for those new to Freebies.
Create a new email address just to use for signing up to these sites. Download RoboForm – http://www.roboform.com/download.html . RoboForm saves so much time when u fill in online forms. Just put your basic (name, postal address, telephone, email address & birthdate) details – not your bank account etc. It is a safe site – I have never had issues with it. Always click on fill form, NOT on fill form & submit with the RoboForm Screen. Make sure u check RoboForm puts the right details into the right places and that all details needed by the companies freebie form are complete, before u click send.
I also suggest you click on all freebies that seem interesting, even if it says the offers have expired, as there may be a new offer available. Also, click on links to other Freebie Web sites that are linked or discussed on the sites I have given u – u never know what you may find. It is worth checking back regularly on Freebie sites as they get updated randomly.
Doing Surveys & Market Research for $ is a good thing too! (Links for these type of companies, are on many of the sites I have given u).
I also do Google & Yahoo searches for free stuff & find many things not even listed on these Freebie sites – the choice with those searches is endless!

Market Research & Rewards etc:
http://www.yourviewscount.com.au/ is a Website that you must read before undertaking ANY Market or Social Research.
NEVER pay for a list of Survey sites – you will find that those lists are purely $ making online SCAMS. I will be listing links to some of the sites that I can honestly recommend signing up with. (I am not promoting SPAM sites either – I DETEST Spam as much as you do!) I won’t be charging you to access such info either!
