Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie Sites – Frugal Novice

Top Ten Tuesday: Freebie Sites

This is my second time to participate in Top Ten Tuesday!

I love finding freebies, but before coming across these sites I’d only get them every once in a while. Now my mailbox is often filled with free samples, most of which we’ll be able to use. Sample sizes of shampoo and conditioner are perfect to take on trips; samples of snacks are great to keep in the car for, “I’m huuuuuuungry!” meltdowns you know your children will inevitably have.

On to the point of this post – where can you find the best freebies out there? Some of these are long-time favorites of mine, and some are more recently discovered:

1. Walmart.com – Most of the sites I’ll share with you today are blogs, but Walmart really is great about posting free samples on a regular basis. The link here will take you directly to the part of their site with the samples, but if you are going there directly click “In Stores Now.”

2. Frugalgirls.com – These ladies are on top of things! They’re constantly posting links for free samples or downloads.

3. Shelley’s Swag – I find out about a lot of the freebies Shelley finds by “liking” her Facebook page, but if you visit her blog you’ll see a ton of freebies – right now she’s even found one for a free t-shirt!

4. This Frugal Life – Jessica is also the queen of coupons and shares situations for getting things free (or nearly free) by combining sales and coupons. Her list of free samples is pretty great, too!

5. Gizmodo’s Dealzmodo – Brian told me about this one! I never would have found it otherwise. Every day Gizmodo, which typically focuses on electronics reviews, posts their Deals of the Day. If you scroll down to the bottom, you’ll find the “Hobomodo” category, which lists things that are either free or cost next to nothing.

6. Free Sample Deals – This site solely lists samples. It’s plain, but serves its purpose, and I’d recommend “liking” their Facebook page to get updates when they post new listings.

7. Frugal Freebies and Deals – I follow them on Facebook and they post updates pretty regularly. When I tried to go to their site, I got an error message. Still, their Facebook page alone is worth visiting.

8. Freecentives – This is a smaller, newer site but it seems to have a lot of good offers listed on it, like one for a Tasters Choice Sample Pack with 6 varieties of coffee to try!

9. It’s All Free Online – Lots of freebies listed here, including one for 10 free ovulation or pregnancy tests. That’s a huge freebie!

10. Freebies 4 Mom – This site is really well-organized into various categories, making it easy to find samples that fit what you’re looking for.

Hope you enjoy visiting these sites and filling your mailboxes!

    I’m really inspired along with your writing skills and also with the layout to your blog. Is that this a paid subject matter or did you modify it your self? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing, it is uncommon to see a nice blog like this one today..
