I can’t resist a great deal. (My closets and cupboards are overbrimming with bargain finds.) And I especially love free stuff.
The Internet is full of freebies – some of them are worthwhile and some of them aren’t. And many of them don’t even look legit. (Sadly, I’ve signed up for my share of phony ones. I spend loads of time giving away my info and get nothing in return.)
Through trial and error, and signing up for lots of deals, I’ve come up a list of 67 true blue, authentic freebies online. From free restaurant meals to free baby supplies to free pet food and FREE PET EXAMS, the Internet is full of fantastic giveaways. Here are the best ones I’ve found. And guess what? They’re good year-round, not just on your birthday.
