How to get Free Stuff on the Internet

Article by Michael Hastings

I am obsessed with getting free stuff, and have been searching high and low now for several days, trying to figure out how to obtain free stuff on the internet. I have realized that it is not as easy as going to a internet search engine and entering the word “free stuff”. Part of the problem, is that I am only interested in truly free stuff. Free stuff such as free samples, free memberships, free image hosting, free car rentals, free airline tickets, free subscriptions, free food and free travel. So, my internet search allowed me to find several websites which purport to offer free stuff, but actually are nothing more than afiliate marketing sites who use a bait and switch method of offering something for free, but only after you have purchased another item. This is not a free item, it is merely just a discount. I only want free items, so these types of promotions do not fit my criteria.

So now you must be asking me then, “where is the best place to find free stuff on the internet?”

First, I must offer an explanation to you on why companies give away free stuff, and this may help you gear up a campaign to collect as much free stuff as possible.

Most free stuff given away by businesses and marketing companies are solely used as promotions for products and services, which they want you, the consumer, to buy at a later date. When these businesses give away their products through samples, they usually will ask for your mailing information and/or e-mail address. This is so they can promote other merchandise to you through these means.

Now back to “where is the best place possible to find free stuff.” The internet has a wealth of information on obtaining free stuff and a collection of websites that are somewhat expert in providing links to merchandisers who are offering free stuff. I will leave it to you to research which ones are best for your needs, based upon their registration requirements, applicable surveys or contest which you may have to participate in.

Step 2: Volunteer for students Many cosmetology, dental, and accounting schools require their students to gain real-life experience by providing free services to the public. Find schools in your area and inquire about no-charge services. You may feel like a guinea pig at times, but students are always supervised. And nothing beats the price. Step 3: Take online surveys If you have an opinion and some spare time, there are hundreds of sites willing to shower you with free stuff in return for filling out marketing surveys.

  1. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can suggest? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.

    • Hello Visitor; Thanks for your request. No, I am not aware of any plugin to fight spam.
      I’m using WP here, & I do recieve some spam comments & posts. Within my WP back office,
      I just simply “delete/trash” them all together. If it gets real bad, then I will search
      within my WP for available spam plugins if there are any. Or I may do an Google search
      for a WP spam blocker plugin.

      Try this, go to Google search & search for; spam blocker plugin (for Word Press or other!?)
      See what pops up. I’m sure there will be many. Hope this helps! ~ MFnet1

  3. Heya this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

    • Hello Visitor; Thanks for your quarry request. Actualy starting a blog website is not
      that difficult & no website coding or html knowledge is required anymore. You can hire
      a company such as Brainhost to create/design your blog/website for you for a reasonable
      fee & they will even host it for you. It’s up to you. Hope this helps.
      Thanks! ~ MFnet1
