There’s such a thing as ‘free stuff’ and for free stuff. This article will shed some light on the ‘free stuff’ industry and hopefully answer some questions for you.
Free is a loosely used term, legally and literally. Many websites circumvent the “free” requirement by implying that there is no monetary or cash cost. However, many websites throw the term around loosely. “Spend $300 and get $10 free” can easily pass the loose definition of “free stuff online” for many websites. While it may be legally true that you got some ‘free stuff, in this case $10, but you had to go through a silly and great effort to get materials. In this example, you would have had to spend $300!
KNOW WHERE TO LOOK
Getting free stuff is all about knowing where to look. You see, there’s going to be a lot of different scenarios where a website will offer you free stuff, but most certainly there will be some kind of stringed attached before you attain the items. What kind of strings? Well, for some sites you will already have to pay for certain items or services in order to get the free items. It’s a loosely tossed around word, free.
There is no such thing as truly free stuff. You are going to find yourself referring a friend, completing a survey, or, even worse, BUYING something. In this writer’s opinion, once you have to purchase something, the deal is no longer free but that’s for another article.
Getting free stuff online is easiest when you have a single website that you can visit and view all of the requirements necessary in order to buy the items.
WHAT KIND OF FREE STUFF IS AVAILABLE?
Just about everything you can purchase at a store is available for free if you go to the right website. You can get free stuff for teachers, free scrapbook stuff, free Christian stuff, free baby stuff, free wedding stuff, and even free Valentine’s day stuff, to mention just a few. And, yes, free iPods.

HOW DO I GET FREE STUFF?
You may be asking yourself, simply, “How Do i Get Free Stuff? Or, “What’s the catch to the whole lot? inch
Well, here’s the scoop.
You can a) participate in offers/promotions, b) complete a lengthy survey, or c) refer friends who would then have to participate. When enough friends have enjoyed, you get your items. The process of referring friends can take months as you first must sell your friends out and then hope they bite on one of the promotions that you didn’t want to participate in.
The problem with the “referral” programs is that you are basically selling your friends e-mail addresses to your own personal gain. That may not sit well with you. Most likely, you will be disclosing your friends to a variety of spam email, USPS Spam, and other dull offerings. This is all done without your pal’s permission.
If you take a survey, you will spend between 20 minutes to 1 hour on a single survey. Anticipate to disclose a lot of information about your life; what you eat, how you eat it, how you wash both hands, which way you like the bathroom paper roll. You will give up a abundant peel of your private information.
The truth is that many merchants both on and off line are willing to give you free stuff just for visiting their store or sending them your address. Sometimes you have to only pay shipping to get your item. Many companies hand out products for you to try, hoping you will continue using the product in the future. Sometimes they offer away remaining stock to make room for new inventory.
As you can imagine, these offers are very short lived and by the time most people hear about it case has already been over. The key is to discover more regarding the offer in time to benefit from it. This can be a challenging task for any freebie rogue. Your best bet is to join a small grouping of like minded people and share your findings.
