Believe it or not, there are tons of sites that offer ways to get free stuff.

The freebies include all sorts of different items like free gift cards, beauty products, free gas cards, household cleaners and more.

Where to Get Free Stuff Online

By visiting one (or all!) of the sites below, you can find nearly unlimited access to free stuff online.

I found many sites but narrowed the list down to the most user-friendly and with the least personal information needed to participate.

1. PINCHme

PINCHme offers new samples each Tuesday. It’s free to join and you get to keep the products you test. Over six million members have tested 20 million samples.

Currently, PINCHme only sends samples to the contiguous 48 U.S. states.

2. 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 basics like beauty, baby and pet samples, they share details on how to get free samples or products on educational products, games, eBooks, clothes, and more.

The site also offers a free CD section. When I clicked on that category, there were offerings for free CDs that focused on different subjects, such as personal finance education and there was a Disney cruise planning CD as well.

3. Swagbucks

Swagbucks is certainly one of the easiest ways to get stuff online.

With Swagbucks, you can earn points by searching online (something you probably already do anyway), shopping, taking surveys, watching videos and more.

With the points you earn with Swagbucks, you can get free gift cards to many popular stores such as Amazon, Walmart, Target and hundreds more.

Bonus: You can also get a $10 sign-up bonus and anyone 13 years or older can join Swagbucks.

4. InboxDollars

InboxDollars is similar to Swagbucks and is another leading company that pays people for doing things they’re probably already doing anyway.

Inbox will pay you points for playing video games, watching videos, taking surveys, downloading apps and more. You can redeem these points for gift cards.

Also, you get a $5 bonus just for signing up!

5. Similac

Are you expecting a baby soon? Similac offers up to $400 in baby formula samples and coupons. You will also get nutrition guidance information.

Other baby formula producers may also offer free samples.

It’s also possible to get free samples by creating an online baby registry from Amazon, Target, Walmart and others.

6. Rebaid

Do you shop at Amazon? Rebaid lets sellers offer products for free or at a steep discount. You must buy the product and Rebaid rebates your purchase within three days.

Full rebates are available for health supplements, clothing, pet supplies and more.

7. 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.

Items they had showcased for free:

  • Cleaning products
  • Food products
  • Coffee samples
  • Dog food
  • Bandages
  • Vitamin supplements

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 various coupons for other stores and companies.

8. Freeflys

Freeflys is a popular freebie site that has earned a regular spot on the widely viewed Today Show.  You can browse 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.

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.

9. TheFreeSite.com

The Free Site is one of the oldest freebie sites with extensive offerings. Most of the options are for digital freebies like apps and downloads. They even have a free sample section.

There are also seasonal freebies and offers for international visitors. Some physical product samples are also available on TheFreeSite.com as well.

10. 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 sidebar on the left of the page.

Bonus: those signing up for their daily newsletter are entered into a drawing for an Amazon gift card.

11. 2000 Freebies

Although the 2000 Freebies site is a little simplistic in its design, that doesn’t take away the ability to search out free samples easily and quickly.

The site shares free sample offerings by the current month. They’re found under a “Hot Freebies” section in an easy-to-use sidebar that is organized alphabetically, by type, or by listing newest offers first.

12. LiveAbout

An extensive online resource for many topics, LiveAbout lists a handful of the best freebies by mail each day. You should check daily to see sign up before supplies run out.

The offerings can include magazines, flower seeds, and free satellite radio trials.

13. I Love Free Things

I Love Free Things is an easy-to-use site that shares hundreds of pages on how to get free products. Their search engine lets you click on the Free Stuff or Free Sample categories.

You can also browse 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.

14. 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.

15. 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 music samples, book and magazine subscription samples to 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.

16. Freebies4Mom

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, food samples and health and beauty products for men and women alike were available when I looked at the Freebies 4 Mom site.

17. Walmart

Walmart sometimes gives away sample boxes containing various products at different times of the year.

When I checked the page at this writing, the free sample boxes they were giving away included a beauty box (when you sign up, you get a different beauty box at four different times during the year) and they also had a box of baby samples you could sign up to get.

For instance, you may have to complete a baby registry to get baby samples. From the site page, it looked like you could get quite a bit of stuff in each box. They do charge a five-dollar shipping fee for each freebie box, however.

18. Sample Source

Sample Source is different than your average free samples by mail website. First, sample boxes are available on a seasonal basis.

You can join Sample Source, take a profile survey, and request a sample box that matches your interests.

You can receive a box that contains some of these items:

  • Beauty care
  • Makeup
  • Household cleaning
  • Food and snacks

No purchase is necessary, but you must rate the items you receive. Your feedback helps companies improve their product and you may qualify for more samples in the future.

19. Freebies.org

Freebies.org is another great site that has info on tons of free samples.

They share information on giveaways for categories such as:

  • Free books
  • Food
  • Cosmetics
  • Feminine hygiene
  • Health products
  • Audiobooks
  • Magazines
  • Pet products

You don’t have to join to use their free sample offerings. However, like other sites, Freebies.org does state that if you sign up for their email list, you’ll get access to more free stuff.

You’ll be first in line for free offers so that you don’t miss out on freebies that have a “while supplies last” limitation.

Some of the cool freebies I found on the site at this writing included free ice cream (woohoo!), free samples of shampoo and fragrances.

20. Freebie Depot

Freebie Depot is yet another site that offers something for nothing – who can turn that down? However, along with sharing info on free samples, they also share about product offers with ridiculously big money savings.

Those bonus offers might not be free, but they can save you bunches of cash. For instance, they share specifics on Amazon’s daily Hot Deals.

The site is easy to use with clear and specific categories listed at the top.

21. Free Stuff Finder

Free Stuff Finder is an expansive site that is well laid out and very user-friendly. The very first tab category on the site is the “free stuff” tab. It makes it really easy to find the free sample offers.

The site shares specific offers on back-to-school deals, has a coupon database, and videos on couponing.

Also, it has a site category sharing the latest ads from some of the biggest store names such as Target, CVS, and Walgreens.

22. All You

All You is sort of a freebie giveaway site and a magazine combined into one. The tagline reads Your Guide to the Best Freebies. I found the site super easy to use and attractively designed as well.

When you reach the homepage (click the link above), you can hit the “Your guide to the best freebies” banner. The site will then take you directly to the latest freebie deals.

Under the banner on the freebies page, you can search via a category taskbar or search by scrolling down through the blog posts. One of my favorite blog headers I found as I scrolled was the “Family Fun” post.

In the article, they shared eight different places to get freebie entertainment options for families. For example, you can get a free movie ticket at a participating theater.

It also has a direct link to the All You online magazine. It features up-to-date articles and some of the popular articles from back issues of the magazine.

23. Hey It’s Free

The Hey It’s Free website was, like many of the other sites mentioned here, attractively designed and easy to use.  The site’s homepage features a blog listing each freebie and the information on how to get it separately.

However, you don’t have to scroll through the blog posts if you are looking for a specific freebie.

Instead, you can use the search bar in the upper right-hand of the page or go directly to the “Top Freebies” tab.

I also liked that they had links to other popular freebie sites on the right sidebar.

24. Target

Like Walmart, Target also has a program where they occasionally give away sample boxes. When I searched online at the time of this writing, I only found one available sample box. However, you may be able to find others as well.

The link above led to a page listing all available beauty sample boxes.

Unlike Walmart, the boxes available at Target aren’t totally free, but they are a really good deal. In a recent sample box, you get $28 worth of beauty products for only $7.

25. Bzz Agent

Bzz Agent describes itself as an “international network of consumers who voluntarily participate in word-of-mouth campaigns for various products and services.”

Here’s how it works:

Go to their website and create a free membership. Then, fill out some surveys that help them gauge your different interests and determine what types of products you use regularly.

After that, you get 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.

Before You Start Signing Up For Free Stuff

As I checked out the various free stuff sites, I also found that there are some things you should be aware of.

For instance, it’s important to note that not all sites claiming to give away free stuff are legit.

In my research, I found a few sites with “get this free” headers that only gave away the sample or product if you qualified, or you may have had to take a survey or make a separate purchase of a product to qualify.

I also found freebie sites that don’t share how to get free samples. Instead, they share links to other sites that may or may not be legit.

So be sure to read the fine print when you check out sites offering free samples and other free stuff.  If a site seems too cumbersome or sketchy, you may want to avoid it.

Knowing where to get free stuff really can be a great way to save a lot of cash.

Strategies for Keeping Up With Free Stuff

Learn to create your own system for finding and signing up for free stuff. Design a system that works around the number of hours you are willing to devote to the project.

Then, learn to maximize what you get for free within that time frame.

Then, make a place in your home to store your free goodies. I suggest storing them on shelves like grocery stores stock their products.

Doing this will make it easy to assess what you have and need. And it will make your freebie storage area easy to use.

You could store freebies you use in your own family separate from freebies you might use to give away as gifts or to those in need.

It is a great way to have an easy-access stockpile when gift-giving or charitable opportunities arise.

You must cancel free subscriptions before the trial period ends to avoid charges.

Does Amazon give away free stuff?

Amazon sometimes gives away free samples or trial subscriptions. You can qualify for the best offers with an Amazon Prime membership.

Another way to find free Amazon products is by using Rebaid, a service that rebates your purchases up to 100% on featured items.

How can I get free stuff online?

Who can get free stuff online?

Never provide your Social Security number or credit card number to get a free sample. If you must spend money, ensure you only pay for shipping charges or the sample box from a reputable company like Target or Walmart.


By creating a freebie stockpile for yourself and others, you can use free stuff to save money. And, by donating your free items, you can help make the world a better place.
