4 Secrets of a Freebie Junkie & Top Freebies of the Week

What do an 8GB USB drive, a Taylormade golf club, personalized pens, a $5 Target gift card, a BareEssentials skincare kit, an aluminum water bottle, a personalized flask, a $15 California Pizza Kitchen gift card, 10 cans of cat food, an Orly nail base coat, and a Physician's Choice eyeliner have in common? I got them all for free. Yes, my name is Casey and I'm a little addicted to finding fun freebies. Starting this week, we'll be sharing the best freebies around on the BradsDeals blog. But before you get started, prepare yourself for the world of freebies by reviewing the tips below!How to Get Freebies

A Freebie is Free!

A real freebie should always be 100% free, not free after a mail-in rebate or free except for the shipping. Those things can still be a great deal, but they aren't the same as a true freebie.

No Crying Over Missed Freebies

Many freebies expire quickly, so don't let it get you down if you miss out on something cool. There is always another awesome freebie around the corner.

Have a Freebie-Only E-Mail Account

Signing up for freebies means you will be submitting your email address to many different websites. Set up a free email account that is not attached to any of your financial institutions. This offers you an extra level of protection, and ensures that your regular email account won't be overwhelmed with advertising or spam. Also, many freebies require a Facebook signup. If you are a Facebook holdout, don't fret. You can set up an account using a pseudonym and use that to get your free stuff!

Don't Count on It!

With a freebie, you are literally getting something for nothing. And that means you don't really know when you will get something or if you will get it at all. Many freebies are shipped so slowly you might think someone is actually trekking across the country to bring you your package. I've had freebies arrive more than 6 months after I signed up for them and others that never arrived. My best advice is to sign up for things, and then forget about them. If you're just getting started with freebies, you may wait 6-8 weeks to see your first package, but if you keep signing up, you will have a steady flow of free stuff making its way to your door.

    AMEN
    at last someone gets it . “Free” on other sites means you have to sign up for 2 from this categoy 3 from another. it’s not worth it. Thank You for knowing the meaning of free. If I could afford to sign-up for all those things I wouldn’t need freebes

    I JUST LOVE FREEBIES!! BUT I REALLY HATE WHEN THEY OFFER A FREEBIE AND THEN THEY NEVER SEND IT! IF THEY WANTED YOUR BUSINESS, THEY WOULD SEND IT OUT OR WITHDRAW THE OFFER!! BECAUSE, I TELL YOU WHAT, IF YOU OFFER IT, AND DON’T SEND IT, FAT CHANCE I AM GOING TO EVER DO BUSINESS WITH YOU!!

    I tried to purchase the Cabella 3 season jacket for 19.99. However the only color for that price is black.
    All the other colors are 24.99.
    Since we were not given a code you would have to pay the higher price of 24.99 + shipping.

  8. Can someone please tell me how I can email Casey Runyan directly concerning Motozuma’s recent Used Car Program launch. We are located in Chicago and offer $200 FREE to any Motozuma Users who sign up and save for a Used Car. (We also have a $500 match for purchased of New Hyundai vehicles.) No hassles. No catch.
