  1. This is a great list. Free sounds like the right price! Another great site is influenster.com for great samples and free products.

    • Free sounds great!

      • I’m glad you liked the information, Diane!

    • Thanks for the tip, MMP. I’ll check that one out!

    • For free snacks samples check out FreebieChatter.com. They have information on how to get free food from fast food restaurants, especially on your birthday.

  2. Free is always a great thing! Have you found these websites to be reliable in their offers and privacy? I’m all about discounts and freebies as long as I don’t get spammed afterward!

    • We wouldn’t write about them if we didn’t think they’d work! 🙂

  3. These websites are complete scams.

    • I’m sorry you think so. We’ve used some of these ourselves and others we have had friends and family use with success.

    • That’s not true for all of them. James at JustFreeStuff makes great efforts to offer up only the good stuff and has been doing it for years. Of course, Walmart and Target freebies are real, they just don’t come up very often. PinchMe is a good one, but it can go in waves where you might not get offered anything and suddenly you get to fill your box!

  4. Freebies Central is another good site with no surveys required.

    • I’ve never heard of that one. We’ll have to look into it. 🙂

  5. This site is so amazing and useful. Because of this site we all now know those companies that give free samples to us in order to promote their new products. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us.

    • I’m glad to help!

  6. Does any one here already received free samples?

    • Hi Angelica,
      I’ve tried some of these sites from time to time. Unfortunately, I’ve never received anything but overloaded emails. It’s very frustrating.

  7. These are all great resources! I recently found a new site freebiedandy.com. This seems to be legit and not spammy.

    • We’ll check into that. Thanks for the tip!

  8. My son loves the Tinker Crates. We started receiving the kits in August and they have been a huge hit. My son loves reading all the information and putting the projects together. He is learning so much. We have had great experience with customer service. One of the boxes we received was damaged from the rain. I emailed the company and they shipped out a new one within a few days. Overall, we love it. 🙂

    • That’s nice! I’m glad they worked with you.

  9. I have been doing freebies since 1996! I have had very good luck in getting samples and coupons since then. I have gotten soap, food, makeup, pet food, and health and beauty aids. You name it, I’ve gotten it free.

    • Nice! That’s awesome.

  10. This is a cool article. I’m gonna check some of these sites out. Another website that has good sweepstakes and free stuff is hotfreebees.com

    • We’ll check into that. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Fantastic article and very useful. I still haven’t checked all the links yet – there are so many in that list. Big thanks for this blog. I’m totally addicted to freebies myself, 😀 and would only add one more to complete the list – freemporium.com. I found them week ago. I don’t know if they’re good or not, but it might be worth checking into. 🙂

    • Thanks and thanks also for the tip!

  12. Can I get stuff for free?

    • You might be able to. Just use this post to see if you can. 🙂

  13. This is my first time. I hope it works well. 😊

    • I hope you can get free stuff too.

  14. I was a seeker of ‘free stuff’. I spent many long hours filling out surveys to reach the bottom of the page. It continued to prompt “just a little more time and you will get to the freebies”. All it accomplished was to generate so many phone calls that I unplugged my phone for days. I got 1 free package of diabetic products, which I thought was wonderful until it turned out not to be free. They charged me $18 and my insurance company $100, for 300 alcohol pads. Now they are saying my doctor prescribed it, which he didn’t. My insurance company has filed a grievance against People’s Pharmacy. It’s all part of ripping off seniors instead of helping them. No more freebies for me!

    • I’m sorry you had that experience, but glad you shared it with us. Thanks for your viewpoint.

  15. Freebies Frenzy is really good too. They check all the freebies they list and give information on them. They also have giveaways listed. There are no surveys or junk. I’ve used them for years.

    • Thank you for mentioning them. We may have to check them out!

  16. Thanks for the information. I loved the information in the replies. They were as good as the art. Is there a freebie group where we could share information? I am going to check on Facebook. That would be fun.
    Nope, I never got anything but a phone call, you know… But I have a broken leg and plenty of time. So, I will give it a shot…

    • While you are recuperating it’s a great time to try to get free stuff online. 🙂

  17. I tried this several years ago and got next to nothing. I got the urge to try again a couple of months ago and to date, all I got was some nasal strips. I have written down some freebie sites from your article. With all the hullabaloo, I am surprised no one has reported one site with so many nice things but such a lengthy survey one could fall asleep. I prefer not to give their site name here.

  18. Please, can I get something for free?

    • Follow the links in this post to see if you can get some free stuff. 🙂

  19. This is my first time. I hope it works well.

    • I hope it works for you as well and that you get some cool, free stuff!

  20. I do the surveys and complete and finish everthing they tell me to do on these sites and I NEVER have gotten ANYTHING! I have e-mailed a few and complained also. The only site I recieved anything in the mail from is IPSY.COM and I pay $10.00 a month for it. I do recommend it, though, to All Women who love make-up, lotions, face wash, etc. Plus the items come in a cute make-up bag that’s different each time. I absolutely LOVE Ipsy.

    • I’m sorry you’ve had bad luck with the other sites, but glad you like Ipsy. 🙂

  21. We are an ECD center in Hanover Park Cape Town. We are an underprivileged center with 92 children and we are always in need of educational and constructive toys for our children. Their ages are from 1 to 6 years old. We would appreciate it if a donor or someone could sponsor our center. It would really bring a smile to the children’s faces.

    • This sounds like a very worthy cause. However, you need to follow the links in the post to see if you can get help. We have other posts on this site that may help as well, such as, “9 Sites Where You Can Get Strangers to Give You Money.”

  22. I have never gotten anything. This must be their first product.

    • I’m not sure which company you are referring to. If you tried, but didn’t get anything, you could contact them about it.

  23. TheFreeSite.com is one of the oldest (since 1995) and best freebies sites out there. The vast majority of freebie sites on the Web simply promote offers that pay them (via affiliate programs). This is why the content on most freebies sites is very similar. By contrast, TheFreeSite.com features a lot of original freebie content that you won’t find elsewhere.

  24. How does the Walmart box work? I didn’t find anywhere to sign up and the boxes are in store only

  25. Let’s celebrate the environmental benefits of used (rather than new) free stuff. Along those lines, why not include Free Cycle (source of my cassette player), Chip Drop (source of our wood chips), and Craigslist?
