67 of the Internet’s Absolute Best Legitimate Freebies

The Best True-Blue, Legitimate Freebies on the Internet

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.

9. Free  Magazines

Who doesn't love some light reading material to leave out on the coffee table? Some "free magazine" offers are a rip-off. They want you to pay for shipping and handling, or you need to enter your credit card and remember to cancel.  No thanks.

With Mercury Magazines, I have got received three free subscriptions: Oprah, InStyle, and Better Homes & Gardens.  Not all subscriptions are available at all times, and with some of the giveaways, you only get free magazines for a few months not a full year. But, I've found them to be legitimately free.

In order to get my free samples, I have had to complete short surveys. But they have been short, 5-question affairs.
