In today`s tough economy finding the best deals is always important. But why just look for deals when you can find free stuff too? I have been searching and signing up for free stuff online for a few years now. It can be time consuming, but it can also be worth it. I have received FULL SIZED items along with regular travel and sample sized items. I am about to tell you some great sites to check out along with a few tips on obtaining these freebies. To start off, make yourself a new email address. The reason for this is because usually along with the free samples comes a lot of free spam, and that is not the kind you eat! The email address will keep all this extra junk and spam separate from your personal and work emails. I personally prefer to use Gmail myself. Plenty of storage space and easy to use. Second, I would suggest downloading a program called Robo Form. It is free to download! You can download the file right from here without leaving this page, for your convenience. The only thing is, it is just a free trial as far as storing your passwords. Once your trial is up, you will no longer be able to just click and have your user name and password auto fill.. BUT you will be able to still auto-fill your personal information (name, address, etc) into site forms. This will save you a lot of time and typing when requesting your freebies or for any other site for that matter. --If you have Firefox just search for the add on extension called "Last Pass" which is the same thing, just no trial needed because it`s free all the time. Third, I suggest getting an alternative phone number. Maybe one of the ones that you use through the internet such as Google Voice. The reason I suggest this, some companies require a phone number. Why? Most likely to try and sell you some sort of junk after you sign up for your free sample. To avoid the annoying spam calls, get some sort of fake number or alternative number for online. If you plan on answering the calls every once in a while, then maybe try out a prepaid phone. Once you have those main things, you are ready to go! Of course they are absolutely not a must have, just a bit of a precaution. So now you are probably wondering what do you do from here? Where do you begin to even look for all these free things? You search the internet of course! To save you time on all that searching though, I will give you a few of my favorite sites. The first site I recommend is Closet of Free Samples --which is where you`re at now. This site is packed with free samples and giveaways! They are all free. If it requires any shipping it will be noted in the title, but MOST do not require that. I personally, try to stay clear of paying shipping charges unless I REALLY like it! Not to mention the site is updated daily multiple times a day. You can subscribe to get email or via google reader or both! Subscribing ensures you do not miss out on the newest postings! Another site I really like is called ExpoTv. This is the site I have received FULL SIZED items to keep and try out. Now the deal with this site is you get paid to post video product reviews. In order to get full sized products you need to apply for various "tryology" programs. If you are selected to participate in one of the programs, they send you a full sized product of whatever they have to try out. The catch is, you need to do a 1 minute video review. Now if you don`t get selected to be a "tryologist", that`s OK! They have assignments where you can earn a few dollars to upload on particular products. You can also review ANY products you have around your home. You get paid for every time someone watches one of your videos as well. There are literally HUNDREDS of web sites on free samples and giveaways and such. All you have to do is search. I just provided you with my top two favorites. I hope the bit of advice I gave will be helpful in your journey to freebie hunting!
