Yay, Free Stuff: How To Get A Freebie Every Day For A Week

By Tina Sieber2012-10-23

free stuff onlineThe internet is loaded with free stuff, from trial software to sites that offer free samples and coupons. Unfortunately, the good stuff is drowned in a sea of scams and dubious survey sites. And even if you do find free offers from trustworthy sources, you have to ask yourself, why are they giving away a perfectly fine product for free? Is this a genuine offer or do they want to collect your personal information, get you to buy more later, or in one way or the other make you advertise their brand?

In most cases there is a calculated reason behind every free giveaway. However, as long as you are aware of the reason, you can benefit without paying a price. Set up a secondary email address to avoid spam and be very greedy with your time and personal data. Then you’re all set to hunt for genuine free stuff. Ready? Below is your schedule for an entire week of collecting awesome freebies.

Monday: Free Classical Album
