Believe it or not, there are tons of sites that offer ways to get free stuff. This includes all sorts of items like baby goods, beauty products, household cleaners and more. This stuff is given away by companies looking to promote their products and get potential customers to try something new in hopes of gaining their business.
We’ve written before on how to get free samples at Walmart, but there are several other websites dedicated to sharing how you can get free samples of many types of products you probably use on a regular basis or wouldn’t mind trying out. Here are some of the sites we found that show you how to get free samples of products and information on other good finds as well.
1. Free Stuff Times
Free Stuff Times shares info on contests, coupons and money-saving deals at local area stores. But when you hover over their home page icon, you’ll get a pop-up that shows you how to get free samples of health and hygiene products, food samples, beauty samples and more. They also have a comments section where people share the freebies they earned by using the site, which is nice for verification that the free samples are still available and whether or not people like what they’re using.
2. Bzz Agent
Bzz Agent describes itself as an “international network of consumers who voluntarily participate in word-of-mouth campaigns for a variety of products and services.” Here’s how it works: you go to their website and create a free membership. Then, you fill out some surveys that help Bzz gauge your different interests and determine what types of products you use on a regular basis.
After that, you get you free samples of products to try for yourself and your family. You then share your honest opinion about those products on your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites, or on your blog if you are a blogger. You get to try new products for free, and then tell your readers, friends and family members whether or not the product was a good find. Great site if you like trying new things and sharing your opinions with others.
3. Free Samples.org
The Free Samples name says it all. The site says it updates every twenty-four hours so you can have the most updated access to free samples and other free items. When we visited the site, it had free sample offerings for cleaning products, food products such as coffee samples, free pet samples such as dog food, free health product samples such as bandages and vitamin supplements and a host of other free samples. The site also shared coupons for getting free drinks and other stuff at a variety of national chain restaurants, coupons for everyday items you find at grocery stores, and miscellaneous coupons for other stores and companies.
Freeflys is a popular freebie site that has even earned a regular spot on the widely viewed Today show. Freeflys organizes their free samples by type such as food samples, beauty samples, health samples, samples for kids and more. They also share hundreds of coupons for everyday items and available sweepstakes entries too. There is a space where you can register to receive daily emails about Freeflys free samples and other deals, or you can browse for free without signing up.
5. Free Stuff
Freestuff.com is a comprehensive site that shares a seemingly endless amount of freebies. One of the great things about Free Stuff is that they let you know right up front if there are any stipulations attached to the free stuff companies and websites are offering. For instance, a company might offer a free product but require you to answer surveys or make a separate purchase in order to qualify for the freebie. If that’s the case, Free Stuff will let you know.
They also have a tab specifically for free samples in a variety of genres such as baby stuff, household and cleaning products, food and drink products, cosmetic samples, sporting goods samples, perfume samples and much, much more. The site includes more information as well, including free stuff sorted by holidays such as Halloween, Christmas or Father’s Day.
6. Go Freebies
Go Freebies shares their free sample links right on their home page in blog post form, which is nice for convenience. They also share free sample information in a side bar on the left of the page. Bonus: those signing up for their daily newsletter are entered into a drawing for an Amazon gift card.
7. 2000 Freebies
Although the 2000 Freebies site is a little simplistic in its design, that didn’t take away the ability to search out free samples easily and quickly. The site shares free sample offerings by the current month, under a “Hot Freebies” section and in an easy-to-use sidebar that is organized alphabetically, by type or by listing newest offers first.
8. Just Free Stuff
Just Free Stuff is a comprehensive site offering deals and free samples on just about anything you could think of. Along with the basics like beauty, baby and pet samples, they share details on how to get free samples or products on educational products, games, eBooks, clothes, printables and more. The site also offers a free CDs section. When I clicked on that category, there were offerings for free CDs that focus on different subjects such as personal finance education and there was a Disney cruise planning CD as well.
They share coupons and contest info too, and they also have another category titled “Bored?” but if you want to know what that category has you’re going to have to head over to the site and visit.
9. Mr. Free Stuff
The Mr. Free Stuff site has a fun theme and shares a lot of information on how to get and do things for free. Along with their free samples shares, they have a section on free things to do in many major metropolitan cities. They share birthday freebies too, along with grocery coupons and sweepstakes contests.
10. Woman Freebies
Don’t let the name fool you. When I visited the Woman Freebies site, their sample page had a variety of samples that could suit men as well as women. The site also offers information on coupons, savings, sweepstakes and hosts daily giveaways as well. As a bonus, they also had links to delicious recipes!
11. Sample a Day
Sample a Day does what it says: shares a new free sample offer every single day. According to the site there are lots of scammer sites offering free samples, and it’s part of the Sample a Day mission to promote only scam-free freebie offerings.
The site shares coupons and prize giveaways too, and also has a cool section on their site where they make readers aware of any contest or giveaway scams they might find.
12. I Love Free Things
I Love Free Things is an easy-to-use site that simply shares hundreds of pages on how to get free products or free samples. Their search engine allows you to click on the Free Stuff or Free Sample categories, or you can browse by their most popular “free” items: baby, beauty, food, clothing or stickers. They also have a search button that allows you to type in a specific keyword, such as “laundry detergent” or “restaurant” to find freebies in those genres.
13. Sweet Free Stuff
Sweet Free Stuff shares the most popular free sample offerings currently available, such as pet food, beauty products and baby products, just as most other sites do. They have a category for birthday freebies too, sharing which companies give free samples or meals on your birthday.
14. My Free Product Samples
The My Free Product Samples site does what it says: Offers free samples with no strings attached. The types of free samples they offered ranged from free music samples, free book and magazine samples, and free “happy” samples (Want to know what “happy” samples are? Just check out the site). They also share popular sample offerings like health, beauty, kid and medicine samples. Bonus: they share store giveaways and sweepstakes entries as well.
This site does lean toward advertising free samples that benefit moms, but it also has enough other free sample offerings to make it worthwhile for non-moms to check out too. Pool cleaning kits, free food samples and free health and beauty products for men and women alike were available when I looked at the Freebies 4 Mom site.
It’s important to note that not all sites claiming to give away free samples or other free stuff are legit. In our research, we found a few sites that had “get this free” headers that only gave away the sample or product if you qualified, and you had to take a survey or purchase a product in order to qualify.
We also found freebie sites that don’t actually share how you can get free samples, but instead share links to other sites that may or may not be legit. So be sure to read the fine print when you’re checking out sites that offer free samples and other free stuff. If a site seems too cumbersome or seems sketchy, you may want to avoid it.
