Bargain Blogger Samantha Liebman says you can find some great freebies, and one place to ask for them, is at the doctor’s office.
Doctors get loads of free samples of expensive prescription medicine, so ask them to share those freebies with you. “I've had doctors give me a month's worth of samples of medication - that saves you a month of paying for a prescription,” Liebman says.
If you need shampoo, deodorant, cosmetics, go to the company website, where you often find freebie coupons and special officer. “A new shampoo and conditioner that Loreal's putting out -- and it gets delivered to your door. You don’t pay for anything!,” says Liebman. Don’t forget to check the brand’s facebook page for giveaways. The catch—you get sample-sized products, and beware! Do not go to generic websites that post lots of links, unless you like spam.
For those who like the movies but not high ticket prices, got to movietickets.com and sign up for the site to get notified of free movie screenings. There is a catch, after you see the movie, you’ve got to review it by filing out a questionnaire.
Swap sites like freecylce.org let you trade stuff with other swappers in your area, and you’d be shocked at what’s up for grabs. “There’s been cars given away, vans, building supplies. She gave away a hot tub,” Liebman says. The catch? Well since you have to swap and give something up, it’s not exactly free, but it’s pretty darn close.
