When I began researching how to get free stuff online, I often asked myself the following question. Will businesses really send me stuff for free? At first I thought probably not, but as I read blog after blog and watched videos of people claiming to get free stuff online I decided to find out for myself.
If you’re new to the freebie scene then you’re probably also alittle skeptical. We’ve been told from an early age “nothing in life is free” and for the most part this is true. However, to my delight I was pleasantly surprised when my mailbox began to fill-up with free stuff, day after day.
Whats The Catch?
Another common question people ask about freebies is whats the catch? I can honestly say for about 99.9% of the offers and freebies I receive there is no catch.
Some of the free products may require you to fill out a short survey or write a brief product review of their free gift once you receive it in the mail. Other than that, I can’t think of any reason to not apply for these free offers. Many of the offers you’ll find on my site only require your name and address. It really is that simple.
