Five Freebie Sites You Should Know About

Five Freebie Sites You Should Know About



Everyone loves to save a buck or two. At least I know I do. Back when I was into coupning, my days (and nights) were spent clipping hundreds of coupons and organizing them into my binder--which I affectionately named Reese's Moneymaker. Seriously, my binder has a name. And a cover page. Don't judge.

Now that I'm no longer actively couponing, I'm finding other, more resourceful ways, to save some pennies. Enter the internet. Although the internet is filled with completely useful and titillating information, such as how Buffalo, buffalo, Buffalo, buffalo, buffalo, buffalo, Buffalo, buffalo is actually a grammatically correct sentence, there are other, even more useful things in the hidden depths of the internet. You guys may remember this post I did a few months ago about freebie sites? Well, I recently stumbled upon a few more really great sites that I wanted to share with you all today.

1. BzzAgent.com: I've been a BzzAgent for over a year and this is actually one of my favorite freebie sites. The best thing about BzzAgent is that you don't have to be a blogger in order to be a BzzAgent. Basically you go in, fill out ALL the surveys and sit back and wait for the campaigns. So far I've gotten over more than two dozen freebies, one included a Draftmark Beer Tap System valued at more than $60.00. I've tried cereal, Neutrogena hand cream and even Dr. Scholls in-soles. I actually prefer this over Influenster because it is a lot less demanding, and in my personal opinion, you get better opportunities. Also, you typically get tons of free coupons and samples to give out to friends and readers. I once got ten little bottles of Neutrogena hand cream that made great stocking stuffers!

In exchange for all these awesome freebies, you will have to write a review, tweet, post on facebook, and if you want additional points, you can post about it on your blog. The more you do, the more points you get. And then there's the bonus. Every time you complete a task from the campaign you get points which get redeemed on a site called My Bonus Points. Once you rack up enough points you can redeem them for gift cards. It takes a while, but I've already gotten 2 $25 gift cards to Old Navy and Barnes and Noble. Not bad at all.

2. Influesnter: As I mentioned before, I prefer BzzAgent, but Influenster definitely it's perks. In order to take advantage of Inluenster, you just have to be social media savvy. Not necessarily a blogger, but it is a bonus. Inluenster differs from BzzAgent in that instead of reciving one perk at a time, you get a box, called a V-box, filled with various freebies.

In order to get picked to receive a V-box, you'll have to fill out your profile and choose various categories that you are considered an influencer i.e. Parenting, Beauty, ect. Once you've established a relatively high score, you may be selected to received a V-box. The V-box typically comes with 5-8 (sometimes) full sized samples. Here's a V-box I received  last year.


In order to remain eligible for future V-boxes, you will have to take a mandatory post-box survey. In order to get selected for more campaigns, you typically have to follow all the companies that provided a sample via twitter and Facebook. You'll be required to tweet and share via Facebook and you'll get bonus points for unlocking various challenges. It's fun if you have the time and you get tons of free perks.

3. Freeflys: With a tagline like "Cheap is good, but free is better," you just can't go wrong. The simple, but cute layout makes it easy to sign up and navigate. The site is updated daily with useful and practical samples. You can choose from various freebies, including:
  • Health
  • Beauty
  • Children 
  • Food
  • Cleaning supplies
4.That Freebie Site: I've actually been using this site for years. I've gotten some pretty sweet swag from here. A few full-sized bars of deodorant, free totes, and dishwashing detergent. But the best part is, in addition to all the fun freebies, you can sign-up to take part in surveys for better products, and sometimes even cash. Although it can be difficult to qualify, I've made it in a few times and have a few extra dollars to show for it.

5. Freebie Finding Mom: I'm a huge fan of freebie finding mom. Back when I was a crazy couponing addict, I would stop by Freebie Finding Mom to get the scoop on the latest sales and coupons. I still swing by from time to time to get the lead on big sales, freebies and giveaways. The site is very well organized, one of the best out there. The freebies are practical and useful. 

So there it is, my roundup of some of my favorite freebie sites. What are some of your favorite sites for freebies?

    1. I'm happy you found this useful! There are so many freebie sites out there to choose from. The problem is trying to find the legitimate ones. I may have to do a part 3 soon :)

  3. Interesting list. I was only familiar with the first two (well semi-familiar with BzzAgent as I have heard of it - not used). I haven't been impressed with Influenster though. Seems like a lot of effort on my end going through their steps & writing reviews with only 1 single item (not a box) received. I've done better with Klout and no effort beyond my usual social media. Thanks for sharing this list - I'll take a peek at the others.

    1. I agree with Influenster. It's too much work for me as well.

      I love the recent changes to Klout. I've gotten 10 perks in the past 2 months. And like you said, there's no additional effort other than tweeting and sharing on Facebook.

  6. Cool list. I've used Influenster and I think I signed up for BzzAgent on your advice, but honestly haven't done much with it. I'll have to go back and check it out again!

    1. So the deal with BzzAgent is that you have to fill out every. single. last. one. of those surveys. It can be annoying in the beginning, but a I had been a bzzagent for close to 4 months and I occasionally filled out the surveys, and hadn't heard anything. The day I finally decided to just go in and fill them all out, is the day I got my first campaign invite. And it's been nonstop ever since! Some are good and some not so much, but it's always exciting to have a bzzbox show up at my door!
