There’s any such thing as ‘free stuff’ and for free stuff. This article will shed some light on the ‘free stuff’ industry and hopefully answer some questions for you.
Free is a loosely used term, legally and literally. Many websites get around the “free” requirement by implying that there is no monetary or cash cost. However, many websites throw the term around loosely. “Spend $300 and get $10 free” can simply pass the loose definition of “free stuff online” for many websites. While it could be legally true that you have some ‘free stuff, in cases like this $10, but you had to undergo a unique and great effort to achieve the goods. In this example, you would have had to spend $300!
KNOW WHERE TO LOOK
Getting free stuff is all about knowing where to look. You see, there’s going to be a large amount of different scenarios where a website will offer you free stuff, but most definitely there will be some kind of string attached before you attain the things. Which kind of strings? Well, for a few sites you will actually have to cover certain items or services in order to get the free items. It’s a loosely tossed around word, free.
There is no such thing as truly free stuff. You are going to find yourself referring a pal, completing a survey, or, even worse, BUYING something. In this writer’s opinion, when you have to purchase something, the deal is not any longer free but that’s for another article.
Getting free stuff online is easiest when you have a single website that one could visit and view all of the requirements necessary as a way to acquire the items.
WHAT SORT OF FREE STUFF IS AVAILABLE?
Just about everything you can buy at a store is available for free if you go to the right website. You will get free stuff for teachers, free scrapbooking stuff, free Christian stuff, free baby stuff, free wedding stuff, and also free Valentine’s Day stuff, to mention a few. And, yes, free iPods.
HOW DO I GET FREE STUFF?
You may be asking yourself, simply, “How Do I Get Free Stuff? Or, “What’s the catch to the whole lot?”
Well, here’s the scoop.
You can a) take part in offers/promotions, b) complete a lengthy survey, or c) refer friends who then need to participate. When enough friends have participated, you obtain your items. The process of referring friends may take months as you first must sell friends and family out and hope they bite on one of the promotions that you didn’t want to participate in.
The issue with the “referral” programs is that you are basically selling friends and family e-mail addresses on your own personal gain. That may not sit well with you. Probably, you will be subjecting your friends to a variety of spam email, USPS Junk Mail, and other lame offerings. That is all done without your friend’s permission.
If you decide to take a survey, you will spend between 20 minutes to 1 1 hour on a single survey. Anticipate to disclose a lot of information about your life; what you eat, how you eat it, how you wash the hands, which way you like the toilet paper roll. You’ll surrender a plentiful slice of one’s personal information.
The fact of the problem is that lots of merchants both on / off line are willing to give you free stuff simply for visiting their store or sending them your address. Sometimes you must pay only shipping to really get your item. Many companies give away products that you should try, hoping you will continue using the product later on. Sometimes they give away left over stock to create room for new inventory.
As you can imagine, these offers are very short lived and by the time most people hear about it the function is already over. The key is to learn about the offer in time to benefit from it. This is often a challenging task for just about any freebie hunter. Your best bet is to join several like minded people and share your findings.
