Yay, Free Stuff: How To Get A Freebie Every Day For A Week

Free Stamp   Yay, Free Stuff: How To Get A Freebie Every Day For A WeekThe internet is loaded with free stuff, from trial software to sites that offer free samples and coupons. Unfortunately, the good stuff is drowned in a sea of scams and dubious survey sites. And even if you do find free offers from trustworthy sources, you have to ask yourself, why are they giving away a perfectly fine product for free? Is this a genuine offer or do they want to collect your personal information, get you to buy more later, or in one way or the other make you advertise their brand?

In most cases there is a calculated reason behind every free giveaway. However, as long as you are aware of the reason, you can benefit without paying a price. Set up a secondary email address to avoid spam and be very greedy with your time and personal data. Then you’re all set to hunt for genuine free stuff. Ready? Below is your schedule for an entire week of collecting awesome freebies.

Monday: Free Classical Album

Mondays are hectic and full of work. Start your freebie week with a key ingredient to a relaxed evening on the couch: a classical music album. Every week, you can listen to a Classical.com Editor’s choice album for free. The album is streamed directly from the website and if you have an account with Classical.com, you can create a playlist and loop the album.

Tuesday: Free Software from Giveaway of the Day & MakeUseOf Rewards

You survived Monday. This should leave you with enough energy to check into Giveaway of the Day, collect some points on MakeUseOf, and trade them in for cool software.

Wednesday: Free Products and Samples

Companies are dying for you to buy their products and tell your friends about them. The competition for customers is tough. This puts you – the customer – in a great position to get free stuff and great deals. If you have some time to kill in the middle of the week, browse the following sites and sign up for newsletters to be alerted of new freebies:

Friday: HostelWorld Pocket Guides

This is the end of a busy week. Are you feeling like it’s time for a little getaway? The best way to pick a place to go and decide on what to do is to browse tourist guides. HostelWorld is offering free pocket guides for all its most popular cities from Africa to South America. The guides come in PDF format and can be printed or – better yet – stored on your smartphone or tablet.

Saturday: Free Stuff via Listia

In many households, Saturday is cleaning day. When you’re tired of chasing dust bunnies and getting those chores done, how about clearing some old stuff you no longer need and exchanging it for something new? Sites like Listia make this possible. How it works is you auction off your old stuff for points, which you can then use to bid for stuff someone else no longer needs. You get 500 credits just for signing up, so you can start bidding right away.

Betty,

I edited your comment and removed your email address. It’s not a good idea to post it publicly as spam bots may pick it up and as a result you might receive tons of spam in your inbox.

Glad you enjoyed the article!

Tina

Yahodhan,

Are you referring to what is listed for Wednesday and Saturday. I don’t know of any particular offers or swap sites for India. However, it was a very good idea to ask this question on Answers. Hopefully you’ll get suggestions from fellow country(wo)men there!

In case anyone else from India sees this comment, this is the question I am referring to: Is there a website that offers free samples and stuff to folks in India?

Free stuff is great except when it leads to possible maleware attacks. The $100 NFL gift card on Totally free stuff is a scam. Leads to a bogus Facebook survey. Just a word of caution. $100 Monday Night Football NFL Gift Card is to good to believe!

Tina Sieber

Thanks for the heads-up Kimchi!

Since Totally Free Stuff!! is curated by users, scams can make it on the list. However, you can always leave a comment, report the offer as a scam, and give the user a bad rating for it.

Great list! Just a pity that the free travel guides are very limited if you´re looking for South America, I would have loved them.

Don’t forget Free Fridays at Barnes and Noble. Every friday, they offer one free e-book. Sometimes fiction, sometimes non-fiction; it’s a great way to try new authors or explore new subjects.
