We've been finding free stuff on the internet for over 15 years, so we know a thing or two about freebie hunting. If you're new to this, the good news is, there isn't much to learn but there is a lot to gain.
The first thing you need to know is where to start your search for free samples, and the answer is right here. Every day we update the website with the very latest free stuff, free samples and freebies we've found on the internet so that you can also apply for them.
What sort of freebies can i get?
The most popular freebies are health and beauty, which includes everything from amazing free makeup samples to popular skincare samples, perfume samples, supplements, accessories and most other beauty related stuff.
Food and drink is another very popular category for free samples and that includes literally everything from soft drinks to hot drinks, alcohol, cereal to snack bars, sweets, meat boxes to cakes, hampers and lots more.
As the bar chart above shows, other very popular categories include home and garden, kids and toys, books and magazine, fashion, pets and many more. Other categories also include loyalty cards, product testing, free tickets, cleaning products and loads more.
How do I apply for free stuff?
The process is really simple. Just visit our home page every day or visit one of the most popular sections where the very latest freebies are displayed and just click on whichever one you want to apply for.
We will show you some further information about what you are going to be applying for and if it sounds good to you, simply click the button on the page and we will send you to the website where they are giving away the product you're interested in.
Please bear in mind that we only send you to sites that we believe are not only 100% genuine but also safe. However, when you arrive on the external website we send you to, please do have a read on the page to make sure it is what we've said it is because sometimes, websites tend to change the product or the terms of what they are giving away after we have already added it to our website.
If everything seems fine, you're all set to follow the instructions on the page to apply for the freebie/free sample. In most cases, they will ask you to simply complete a form to apply, or they may for example ask you to like or follow them on one of the social media channels.
Is there a charge to get some freebies?
Paying to get something for free sounds like a bit of an oxymoron but the answer to the question is yes. The vast majority of freebies on the internet don't charge a single penny but every now and then we do feature products that are being given away for free, but only if you pay a postage charge. The actual product is free of charge but the company giving away the product. In most cases, a small P&P charge will apply if the product being given away is quite large/heavy, making it unaffordable to send free samples.
Where there is a postage cost, it's up to you to decide if you think the product is worth paying to have it posted out to you. All-in-all though, only around 1-2% of stuff we feature requires a postage fee.
Do you have a freebies mailing list?
Absolutley! In fact, we have over 450,000 subscribers on our mailing list and it's one of the best ways to hear about new updates on the site before others get to see them.
Have a look at our Newsletter Archives for an example of what to expect arriving in your inbox.
Typically we send out a newsletter update every day, usually in the mornings. Inside the newsletter are the newest and most popular additions to the site. The sooner you apply for stuff, the more likely you are to receive things for free, because they usually don't last too long.
Different types of free stuff
The infographic below is a quick guide to the different types of ways you can apply for freebies. by far the most popular and most featured on this website is the 'No cost free stuff'.
If you need more clarity about the different ways to get your hands on goodies for free, continue reading.
- No Cost - 100% FREE
By far and away, these are the most common freebies we feature on the website. The company/website giving the stuff away only requires you to enter your postal details and they may ask a few questions about the product they are giving away free samples for.
- Full or partial money-off coupon
We do feature quite a lot of these and they are just as popular as the above. In the vast majority of cases, it's a full money-off coupon that needs to be redeemed in a supermarket, shop or online. However, some coupons only cover a portion of the cost, but they are usually quite generous. Usually, brands will give out coupons for stuff like perishable food that doesn't lend itself to posting out.
- Free with delivery charge
Every now and then we would feature giveaways that ask for a small delivery charge. Often a postage charge is the only way to make the giveaway viable because either the item is too expensive to post or it's too costly for a freebie to also pay postage for 1000s of items.
- Free with other purchase
Sometimes brands will give away free samples when you make a purchase on their website. This is actually very common on most e-commerce websites. However, we don't tend to feature too many of them because often the free gift on offer is way to low a value compared to how much you would need to spend to get the free gift. Saying that sometimes we find decent free with purchase offers and they generally do very well.
- Free when you refer friends
Often when brands are launching a brand new product or service, they want to generate interest so they reward people who refer friends to their promotion page by giving away some of the products for free. Generally, the more people you refer, the better the freebie will be winging its way to your door.
- Free things for liking social pages
Everyone wants loads of followers and likes on social sites such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and others. Giving away stuff for free is a great way to get people to like and follow. That's why we feature lots of offers like this on a regular basis. When we feature such a giveaway, we normally let you know which social channel you will have to be a member of to apply for the giveaway. That way, you won't waste your time clicking over to the site. We strongly recommend signing up for as many social networks as possible because there is so much on there to be had.
Do you have free stuff on Facebook and Twitter?
Yes we do. Our social channels are another excellent way to get the latest updates. Every day we post one or two of the most popular new finds on our Facebook and Twitter page. Our followers also post some amazing stuff they have found on Facebook, which we don't feature on the website. There are too many to add to the website so we highly recommend you following us on Facebook to see what our followers are posting. Some of them are gems not to be missed.
We also have a Facebook Group called Best UK Free Stuff & Competitions where we along with others regularly post new stuff they've found. We make sure that we vet new postings on the Facebook Group to prevent the group from being abused, so you can be sure that anything you see on there has been checked. for quality. If you find cool things on Facebook, we encourage you to join our group and post cool stuff you've found.
