If y'all haven't noticed yet, I'm the freebie QUEEN. I grew up on the saying "if it's free it's for me" and I now swear by that statement LOL. I've signed up for every. single. possible. freebie website throughout my time on the internet, and I can tell you exactly what websites are worth it and which are duds. So if you're interested in ALLL the free stuff, here we go:
Influenster is my most faithful freebie site. While they aren't pumping out the freebies to you, you'll get a really solid product or two every few months if you stay active on their site (mostly makeup related products, some others though). Everything they send is full sized, and sometimes they'll even send themed boxes with several full sized products in them. They just want a little social interaction, mainly reviews in return for the products. In addition to free stuff, their site has REALLY helpful information. I refer to Influenster any time I need to find a new product for something specific. I'd give this site a 10/10 any day of the year and I consistently recommend it to all of my friends.
HOLY CRAP this site is crazy. I've cashed out probably over $100 on this site, it's INCREDIBLE. By far the best survey for money option out there. Rather than surveys, this site will just give you periodic random questions. While it seems inefficient at first when you see the low point values on each question, those suckers add up FAST. I'm getting free $20 amazon cards every other month. And the questions take no time to answer. I buzz through the 20 I have on deck every night before I go to bed, and it's absolutely nothing. If you're not using this site, you're not living life right TBH. Much less often, they also do product tests. I've applied for probably about 4 and gotten 1 (that had 3 pieces), which honestly isn't too bad of stats. This is all in all my favorite website to recommend to people.
Most people I've discussed this site with don't like it, but I honestly have NO clue why because it's one of my fav. The second Tuesday of every month they have their freebie day. Just hop on their site around noon and you can claim 3-4 samples. All they want is a review of the sample after you've tried it. If you're hungry for more samples, you can do surveys to earn various sizes of sample boxes as well. In addition to samples, their website has a collection of free/sponsored offers from some other sites. I personally think it's a pretty good deal and I log on atleast every Sample Tuesday.
This is my favorite of the complete-surveys-for-giftcards sites. I feel that it has the best return, the most reliable surveys, and the best gift card options. In addition, they have a TON of other ways to earn points towards the gift cards. They'll even give you money back on purchases. Yes, it still takes a little time to get money just like every other survey site, but I've tried so many others and always gone back to this one because I've found it to be the best one by far.
This may sound kind of weird, but hear me out here. Reddit is useful for a lot of things, one of those being free stuff. There's an entire subreddit dedicated just to people posting links to free things on brands' various websites. I check that page daily, and I find something I want to sign up for like every other day, sometimes even more. This subreddit is honestly the main reason I even have the Reddit app, it's so great. Join in and bask in all the glory that is Reddit and r/freebies.
This site is really good at sending out the opportunity surveys, not really great on the return though. For about a year now I've filled out about every survey that comes my way, and in total I've gotten 2 Emergen-C samples, 1 mascara sample, and 1 perfume sample from this company. So yeah, occasionally you'll get something, but its A LOT of effort for very little reward. I keep up with it because I'm really dedicated to free stuff, but I imagine most people wouldn't want to.
Another one of those sites where you'll get free stuff every once in awhile, but it's not a huge return. Thankfully, this one isn't a huge effort either. You just hit a little want button and there you have it, you're signed up to maybe receive a freebie. If you're super into free stuff then join it (I still use it), but if you're only looking for the serious sites here, then this one probably isn't for you. I will note that they've recently changed up their platform and also added a boosting page for products you want to see them sponsor. I'm not sure if this will lead to more return but I'm hopeful!
This is another one of those once-in-awhile sites. They have a couple new campaigns every month. I think I've maybe made it into two in my year on this site. These are more home-based, general products though. Again, if you're really into your freebies, you can check this out. But if you're looking for minimal effort maximal return, this is probably not your site.
This site used to be my absolute go-to. They've recently restructured so I can't give you a whole lot of insight into it right now, but they are still running freebie campaigns. I will update this as I'm on it a little longer, but check it out in the meantime if you're interested in maximum opportunity!
This is more of a contest website as far as free stuff goes. They have a ton of other stuff that is super cool don't get me wrong: product reviews, blog and informational articles, videos, etc . But if you you to the parties and giveaways page, you can enter to win several giveaways a month. One cool thing I've found is I have gotten opportunities to read a few books for free just for my review and promotion of it on social media. This website has a lot to it so it's definitely not a big return (I've never won a giveaway), but if you're looking for freebies and more, then maybe check this one out.
Freeflys (Free Stuff)
I used to love this site because I used to get daily emails with just links to free things and it was great. I don't get the emails anymore and honestly even I find the website a little too much to navigate through, so I don't interact with this website much anymore. Still a super great site with a TON of resources, just a bit messy. Maybe new sign ups will still get emails though? If so, then this website is a huge move.
This is the website that I strongly recommend to STAY AWAY FROM. This site promises discounts and reimbursements, and doesn't follow through. They will ask you to go out and buy something then submit your receipt and they will Paypal you. After everyone goes out and buys the items though, they never follow through and ignore all attempts at questions in the campaign. DO NOT go near this website.
This is my current complete list of freebie sites I use, but don't worry, it will be updated constantly! If you have any freebie sites you think I should check out and include, let me know in the comments!
I do want to let y'all know that I think ~ two of these links are my account on the site's "personal referral link". This post is NOT SPONSORED IN ANY WAY and I honestly don't know if I'd even get anything from y'all using that link vs. a normal one. Just figured I'd throw the link on there since I had it. But I promise you guys these opinions are all my own and in no way sponsored or biased by the companies! Just old-fashioned freebie sharing. :)
Welcome to my small corner of the internet! My name is Alex and if you know me (or have really seen me on any sort of social media), you learn pretty quickly that I LOVE food and LOVE sharing my love for food even more. Thus, the creation of this blog!
