  1 The Merits of Using Freebie Sites The quickest and easiest way to find freebies on-line is to visit freebie sites. Like other freebie sites, KwikFreebies, the one you are on right now, is just a directory which lists free products that other companies have on offer. KwikFreebies is not the one providing free products and services. All we do is give you information on what companies are offering which samples at any given time. If you have already used our site, you will know that when you click on a link to a free sample or product on any of our pages, you are directed away from KwikFreebies to the third party web site responsible for offering that particular freebie. Should you decide to place a request for that free sample, the transaction will be between you and them. KwikFreebies acts purely as what is known as an aggregator, (someone who finds all the best free stuff from around the web) or facilitator, (we list all the freebies we find in one place so they're easy for you to find). As a facilitator, KwikFreebies role is to provide our visitors with a directory of all the free stuff we find and provide you with easy access to them. We do our utmost to find free products and services that appear to be legitimate and then present them to you in an easy to understand way. Why do companies give away free products and services? The answer is for marketing purposes - giving stuff away is an alternative to traditional advertising. When a company is about to launch a new product or service to the market, the product is clearly unique and very few people will have heard of it. Although advertising remains the main part of any marketing campaign, many companies now choose to distribute free samples to complement their advertising. A company typically announces the free offer on its own website or via a third party marketing company in the hope of lifting the visibility and popularity of its product. This typically works very well as news of the free sample spreads..... Freebie Sites source these free samples from around the web, then list them all in one place, where they direct visitors to the company sites providing the free samples. If you like what you see all you have to do is request the freebie. It should be noted that you don't order a freebie, you request it! On the company's web site you will be asked to provide an email address, your name and mailing address. On some offers you will be asked for additional information - if you are not comfortable about answering their questions simply leave the site. If you are ever asked for credit card info it is a red flag - never provide your info - click here to learn more. Once you have requested a freebie from a company you will be added to their mailing list. The bottom line is, you get your freebie in exchange for providing the company with your contact details. In other words both parties should be happy. But what if you don't get the freebie you requested?   2 Why don't I always get all the freebies I request? You're probably thinking along the lines.... is the company not legit? or that was a bogus offer? Was it a phishing ploy to get your information? In reality it was probably nothing like that. The company was more than likely legit & the free sample was probably real. Yet it is still possible that you did not receive your freebie. This is why... When companies offer free samples it is normal that they predetermine the number of samples they are going to give away before they launch their campaign. These samples are distributed on a first come first served basis. That means if you do not request your free sample before supplies are exhausted, you are highly unlikely to receive your freebie. It's common for a company to receive more requests than it has free samples to offer. In fact in many cases, the free samples are exhausted within an hour or two of launch! This is the main reason you don't get all the free samples you request. But there’s more to it than just being quick - shipping costs can often influence what requests a company fulfills. Imagine yourself as the company that is providing the free samples. Your offer is massively oversubscribed and the only cost variable available to you is the shipping costs. Wouldn't it make financial sense to fulfill the requests that were closer to home. In other words, the closer you are to the company's distribution center, the lower the shipping costs! Your geographical location is another reason why you don't always receive the freebies you request. The bottom line is requesting a free sample does not automatically mean you are entitled to it. There are a number of reasons why you may not receive all the freebies you have requested. While we have explained the main two reasons above, there are often many other things that can determine whether or not you will receive the items you requested. We cannot explain all the factors here because they vary from offer to offer. To summarize, freebie hunting should be looked at as a numbers game. In other words, the more free samples you request, the more you will receive and the happier you will be. As we said at the beginning, the quickest and easiest way to find freebies on-line is to visit freebie sites like KwikFreebies. By using freebie sites you will save countless hours of searching the web for free stuff, plus, generally speaking, you don't have to worry about scams and requesting bogus offers. In other words, it's safer to use a freebie site than it is to do the grunt work yourself.   3 How to tell the difference between Bogus Offers and Real Freebies The online world is full of unscrupulous people, hackers trying to steal your identity, dodgy businesses trying to scalp you for a few dollars, phishing schemes to see what they can take you for, the list goes on and on... Just because a web page says it is offering something for free, doesn't mean it actually is! With the information we are providing here our goal is to make you're search for freebies a safe, pleasant and rewarding experience. You need to be aware that wherever people gather in large numbers, a shopping mall, a sporting event or the internet, there are always  bandits around, just waiting to pick your pockets. The techniques they use may be different, but the end result is the same, and it can be very costly. By the way, this doesn't only apply to your freebie hunts, it applies to everything you do online! If a website looks unprofessional, it should raise a red flag If a website lacks depth, little in the way of text, graphics & relevant information, it should raise a red flag If a website is only offering a single freebie, it should raise a red flag If a website is lacking a menu or some form of navigation, it should raise a red flag If a website contains only a handful of pages, it should raise a red flag If a website doesn't appear to have any social media presence, it should raise a red flag If a website has more ads than content, it should raise a red flag If the site you are viewing has any of these characteristics your best bet is to leave the page immediately without sharing any of your information! Chances are, whatever you want from the site, you won't get anyway! Nearly all legitimate websites have pretty good visuals, lots of relevant text and offerings, a comprehensive menu or navigation system, a social media presence, hundreds if not thousands of pages and a practical purpose for existing. Check to make sure you are not visiting a Hoax Website Many phishing schemes illegally use the name & logo of a legitimate company. They exist solely to relieve you of your personal information. If you're on a site and something seems to good to be true, it probably is. Before providing any personal information make sure the Domain Name in the URL address bar matches up with the business name on your screen. If it doesn't it's a scam and you need to get out of there as quickly as possible. Legitimate freebies are nearly always hosted on the main domain name of a company, but there are exceptions. For example, a company may offer free samples via third party Product Testing Organizations. If this is the case, the product testing site should have multiple offerings from a number of different companies. That's pretty easy to check. Freebie Sites As previously explained, KwikFreebies (or other genuine Freebie Sites) are not the one's providing free products and services. All Freebie Sites do is give you information on what companies are offering which samples at any given time. When you click on a link to a free sample or product on any of our pages, you are directed away from KwikFreebies to the third party web site responsible for offering that particular freebie. Should you decide to place a request for that free sample, the transaction will be between you and them. KwikFreebies acts purely as what is known as an aggregator, (someone who finds all the best free stuff from around the web) or facilitator, (we list all the freebies we find in one place so they're easy for you to find). That being said, obviously the Freebie Sites domain name will always be different to the name of the free product or service. The domain name of the site you are directed to is the one where the domain name should marry up with the free product. You will find that genuine freebie sites have already filtered out scams, hoax websites & phishing schemes etc., so it is unlikely (but still possible) you will run into a scam freebie if you find it though freebie sites. Other things to watch out for are: NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION - If anyone requests money or credit card information from you it is almost certainly a scam! IF THE OFFER SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT PROBABLY IS - For example, if you see a "free offer" for a 60" Flat Screen TV, or other high value items, then it is almost certainly a scam!   4 What do Legitimate Freebie Offerings look like? Free Samples of Brand Name Products Offered on the Manufacturer’s own Website These freebies are as genuine as can be. They are also the most likely to deliver the free samples you request to your mail box. Most household name brands have advanced logistics that enable them to deliver tens of thousands of free samples nationwide, and in some cases, worldwide. Free Samples of Lesser Known Brands Again, these freebies are genuine. However, it should be noted that there may not be sufficient quantities available to meet the demand. Additionally, as mentioned earlier, some of these smaller companies may determine the distribution of their offer based on shipping costs. In other words, the closer you live to their distribution center, the better your chance of getting your freebies. Product Testing Organizations This is one of the best ways to get tons of quality freebies. There are lots of companies out there that do product testing on behalf of manufacturer's, and they give out lots of free products to testers. The trouble is, most people don’t know how and where to find such product testing opportunities. What we are referring to is real organizations that give away genuine free products to their product testers. To be clear, you do not get paid for testing these products, but you do get to keep the products you test. If you're a serious freebie hunter, we recommend you sign up with as many product testing programs as possible. To make it easier for you, here is a list of 27 Product Testing Companies that are currently available. Printable Coupons & Free After Rebate Deals Coupons & Free After Rebate Deals can be valid for anything from groceries, restaurants, various services or just standard coupons worth a fixed amount. Most coupon & rebate deals you find will be genuine, but it's still worth phoning the retailer to check they will honor it before dragging yourself off to a store.   5 Freebie Tips & Tricks to Maximize Your Haul & Minimize Your Effort Hopefully, having read this far, you already have a good understanding of how freebie sites work and how to differentiate between legitimate freebies and scams. It's now time to tell you how to maximize your chances of actually getting enough freebies to burst your mail box. First and foremost, in case you are not aware, there are tons of freebie sites out there, which is obviously good news for you, the freebie hunter. However, the trouble is, there are also millions of other people searching for online freebies too, which in turn means you are facing not inconsiderable competition. If you are only looking at one freebie site you are not going to see all the latest freebies in a timely fashion. You need to understand that each freebie site finds its own freebies in its own time; this means that the free products you find on one site are often very different to the ones you will find on a different site. As time is very much of the essence when requesting a freebie, you should get into the habit of checking what's available on 3 or 4 different freebie sites on a daily basis. If you only look at one, you are placing all your eggs in one basket, meaning the offer may not be hot off the press when you eventually see it! As we said earlier, its all a numbers game... It may seem an obvious thing to say, but, the more freebies you request, the more stuff you will find turning up in your mail box. Try not to get discouraged if a specific freebie you really wanted doesn’t show up. If you put in a consistent effort and request freebies every day you will be rewarded with a steady stream of surprises turning up on your door step. Reduce the time & effort you put in by using Auto-fill All major web browsers have free add-ons designed to help users fill out forms quickly and very efficiently. All you have to do is carefully fill out your information once, then watch your browser extensions automate it. Once you have set it up, each time you need to fill out a form, you can do it with just one click. Auto-fill will save you so much time you can easily increase the number of freebies you request. You can find free Auto-fill extensions for your browser on the following links: Chrome Firefox Safari Internet Explorer. Don't forget, this is a numbers game & time is of the essence! Try to sign up for freebies on a daily basis. If you don't, it is more than likely that the free stuff you want has been exhausted before you even request it! Set aside 5 minutes or so a day to request your freebies and you will be amazed at how many requests you can submit when you are using Auto-fill!  

6 How To Ensure Your Search for Freebies is a Safe, Pleasant & Rewarding Experience

Everyone loves getting something for nothing, but there’s a number of important things all Freebie Hunters must be aware of, to protect your personal information & avoid nuisance calls and an overflowing email inbox. We are finishing up with these brief tips to help ensure your search for Freebies is a safe and pleasant experience. Keep the personal information you share to an absolute minimum…. Mailing Address Obviously, if you want your freebies to be successfully delivered, you will need to provide your name and an accurate mailing address, along with an email address. Clearly, if you don’t provide your real mailing address, you will never receive anything! Email Address If you use your main email address when you register for freebies, you will quickly find your email inbox bursting at the seams with unwanted junk mail. This problem is easily solved by creating a secondary email address. You can quickly and easily set up a secondary email address for free in any number of places. Some of the more popular places to set up a new email address are Gmail, Hotmail and Yahoo Mail. Telephone Number Some Freebie offers will require you to provide a contact telephone number. Beware, if you provide your real telephone number you are almost certain to be bombarded with nuisance marketing calls! Never give out your real telephone number. If you would like the ability to get freebies that require a phone number, we strongly recommend you get yourself a new free number from somewhere like Google Voice. Finally, and most importantly…. NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR DEBIT OR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION If anyone requests credit card information from you it is almost certainly a scam! Now you are aware of the potential pitfalls, we hope your Freebie search is a safe, pleasant and rewarding experience.
