I am not what I would consider a freeloader. But I love getting things for free. Free is my favorite word. Free is how we stretch our budget.
I thought I would share with you where I get things and how you can get them too.
Schoola is an excellent place to get kid’s play clothes and shoes. You can get a $15 credit, which translates into 4 or 5 different pieces of clothing.
I was able to order my boys quite a few deals through Schoola. Plus they run a lot of coupon deals and free shipping deals to stretch that money even further.
I've gotten some great name brands like Vera Bradley, Tommy Hilfiger and Eddie Bauer. Their clothes range in quality so you might get a pristine outfit or you might get something that looks like it's been used. But, it's free or very inexpensive.
Sample Source seems a little random as to when they send things. But they do send usable samples like coffee, small packs of cereal and toothpaste.
They will even send you full sized things like toothbrushes and their samples usually include high value coupons.
It is free to join but their samples are usually limited. And samples to toiletries you can’t use can be donated to your local food bank or shelter.
Are you a blogger or vlogger? Influenster will be right up your alley.
You can receive full time products to review and talk about on your blog, YouTube channel and on social media.
Each box they send has a different theme and they are lots of fun to participate in. I have received everything from free ice cream and makeup to lunch items and organic juice for my kids.
I love Ebates. I love that you can save money on things you need. And score some free deals.
Ebates is really easy to use, you just go to their site, find a link to the online retailer you want to use and then shop and get a percentage cash back. You can combine this with sales from those online retailers to get stuff free or close to free.
Plus when you sign up right now you can get a free $5 gift card to Target!
Top Cash Back:
This has got to be the most fun freebies we have gotten at our house.
TopCashBack offers several specials throughout the year, but my favorite are the DVDs.
Last year we were able to get Frozen and this year we got Big Hero 6 (I am saving that to give my oldest for Christmas).
You can have one account per adult in your house. Basically you shop online at Walmart or another retailer through and it works like Ebates, you will get money back. But in the case of their DVD deals the items were completely free after the rebate.
They specialize in eco friendly and people friendly products such as Mrs. Meyers, Method and Seventh Generation. Plus they sell diapers, wipes and baby items!
You can get a $10 credit when you sign up for an account.
Getting free stuff is a great way to stretch of supplement your budget.
Like Sample Source PINCHme lets you pick samples once a month and then ships them to your door at no charge. Tooth paste, feminine products, nail polish and even snacks. All shipped at no charge to you.
While Ebates isn't free you can earn cash back on items you need anyway, they offer exclusive coupon codes and percentages back. Also, when you sign up you can get a $10 gift card to Walmart or Target.
What about you? Where do you score free deals online?
