5 Simple Ways to Be Ready for Freebies

5 Simple Ways to Be Ready for Whatever Freebies Might Come Your Way - A Great Frugal Tip So You Don't Miss Out on Freebies!

Have you ever encountered a freebie deal on a website that you didn’t have time to do? I know I have! Freebies are quite exciting – but it can also be disappointing to miss out on one that you didn’t have time to complete. Freebies will come around again, but I’ve learned five simple things I can do ahead of time to be ready for future freebies. I want to share these with you so you can plan ahead for good free deals, too!

1. Set up a separate email account for all the online offers you will complete. It doesn’t have to be a new account but a separate junk email account is very helpful when you are requesting freebies. I still use my maiden name account for all the freebie offers I register for online. This keeps your regular email account from getting cluttered with various newsletters and offers.

2. Request all the free samples of shampoo, conditioner and other toiletries that you come across. Store them in a basket or bin so you can quickly pack for a trip without the hassle of big containers. This is especially important if you fly regularly, but it’s just as handy for driving vacations. Of course, keep requesting those free laundry products and food samples, too, because who doesn’t like seeing something other than bills in your mailbox?

3. Download the pictures and printables you want to print into one folder on your computer. Yes, you might spend an hour doing this now but it will save you so much time in the future. This way, every time a free 8×10 print offer rolls along, you can easily choose one from this folder to redeem without trying to remember what you wanted to print – and where it was. I keep a board on Pinterest for my favorite printables and periodically download them from the various sites to one folder on my computer. If you are extra ambitious, you can take it a step further and upload the entire folder of pictures to print to the Walgreens site, which is where we get most of the free 8×10 offers. Now you are really ready to redeem free prints in only a minute or two!

4. Create a 8×8 Shutterfly photo book. We often see deals that need to be redeemed in a day or two for free 8×8 books. Shutterfly photo books are absolutely beautiful and since they are normally $29.99, this is a fantastic freebie deal! If you create the book ahead of time, you won’t have the pressure of hurrying to create a book before the offer expires. I like to create a book for each of our family vacations. It is a nice keepsake of our time away and looks so professional. I create the books when I come home from vacation and leave them in my Shutterfly account until I see a free deal. You could create some beautiful Christmas presents for others, too, simply by creating a book early in the year and watching for a free deal.

5. Start searching on Bing and / or Swagbucks today. Don’t wait any longer to take advantage of the free money you could be earning. It’s easy to say I’ll start searching next month or even next year, but why wait to earn free money? Even at the most basic level, you can easily earn $5 a month in Amazon gift cards by spending a couple of minutes each day searching on Bing and / or Swagbucks. Who wouldn’t like an extra $60 to spend this year at Amazon? While Bing is my current favorite, if you use both Bing and Swagbucks, you could quickly double that amount to $120. That is quite a few presents you can purchase for free! No more excuses. Go get started so the free money will continue to grow.

These five ideas all take varying amounts of time, but as you can see, doing these simple things ahead of time will help you to be ready for future freebie deals. To me, being prepared for the Shutterfly freebies is where I get the most savings. Which one of these tips will you start doing?

Top CashBack: Free Gain Dryer Sheets

Top CashBack Logo

I have to share my new favorite frugal discovery of the weekend with you! Are you ready? It’s an online cashback rebate program called Top CashBack.

I discovered Top CashBack when I saw something on Facebook about a promotion they were running to get a free dvd of the new movie Frozen. I’m sorry I didn’t share it here, but there were only 2 hours left in the promotion when I discovered it. I quickly read about the site and it seemed reliable so I gave it a try. I was skeptical but guess what? It worked seamlessly! My husband picked up our new dvd of Frozen yesterday and the cashback is pending in my account already.

When we were checking to make sure the deal worked as promised, we discovered another freebie deal on Top CashBack. This time, it is for a free box of Gain dryer sheets. It’s maybe not as exciting as Frozen but it’s still free – and you can actually make a bit of money doing this deal. Let me explain.

With Top CashBack, you sign up for their site (here) and then go to the Walmart site, via their links. When you do, you purchase the free product and pay out of your pocket. Within 30 days, you will receive cashback to cover the total (plus tax!) and you can redeem it in various methods. You can read more about it on their website but let me assure you this works. Now, let me walk you through this so you can pick up your free box of Gain dryer sheets.

  1. Sign up for Top CashBack here. If you are a new member, you will have to confirm your account via an email link. Check your spam filter if you don’t see it because my email came instantly.
  2. Log into Top CashBack and search for Walmart. Click on Walmart and read the full details of the offer.
  3. Click on the orange button that says “Get CashBack Now.” This is very important as the deal will not work if you don’t click here to get to the Walmart site.
  4. Now you will be at the Walmart site. Search for Gain dryer sheets. You have 3 choices to choose from for this free product – all priced at $4.88.
  5. Select your favorite scent of either 105 or 120 count Gain dryer sheets – Freshlock Apple Mango Tango, Freshlock Island Tango or Spring Lavender.
  6. Add the item to your cart and select site-to-store shipping. Again, this is very important! Make sure this is the only item in your cart and follow the checkout directions.
  7. Complete your transaction. With tax, my Gain dryer sheets cost me $5.22.
  8. Within a few days, $5.50 will be credited to your Top CashBack account. You’ll be able to cash back in 30 to 90 days. You can chose to be paid back via direct deposit, to your paypal account or in Amazon gift cards.
  9. Walmart will email you when your order is ready for pick-up. My dryer sheets were ready almost immediately – but will be held at the front desk for 14 days.
  10. Enjoy a free new product! You have until Thursday, March 27th to complete this offer – or while supplies last.

It takes a minute or two but in my humble opinion, I’m getting something for free – and actually making a bit of money in the process! That makes Top CashBack worth my time. Any questions? Feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer.
