Things you can sign up for

  • Amazon Mom-Have you signed up for Amazon mom yet, why not it's free! when you do you get Free Amazon Prime 2 day shipping on everything not just baby items for 3 months, then for every $25 you spend on specialty baby items (like wipes and diapers) you get another month free! Plus you get 30% off and if you get automatic shipping (subscribe&save) on diapers it ends up being like $30 a box
  • BzzAgent- Take surveys and receive full sized products to try and spread the word about. I've received:
    • Dr Scholls inserts for women
    • Kcups
    • Razors
    • Clariton 
    • Makeup
  • Crowdtap- Crowdtap is like Smiley360, houseparty and buzz agent. Get free products to test and get entered into monthly drawings.
  • Disney Movie Rewards-Enter specially marked codes from Disney movies, earn points, and redeem them for great gifts.
  • Ebates: this a really cool site, where you earn money back on your purchases for example if you use snapfish and go through ebates first which then links you to snapfish you can earn up to 12.5% of what you spent back, this works for ebay and 1200 other stores also, the percentages you get back range from 1%-25%, you're shopping their anyway so you might as well get some of your money back. Ebates sends checks out every quarter I believe; 2 weeks after I started I got a check in the mail for$7.28 from all of my Ebay purchases, so it does work.

  • House Party:Enter here to win party packs, random parties throughout the month that you can apply to host
I was chosen to host a Gerber House Party

  • Kellogg's Rewards-Earn points towards great rewards and get special offers via email

  • Mom Ambassador- Become a mom ambassador receive free products to share with other moms
  • ThredUP- Get a $10 credit for signing up, they sell new and used kids clothes

  • RecycleBank- Earn points by being earth friendly and taking mini surveys, redeem those points for coupons or GC's
  • Take surveys "missions" and qualify to test products and then review them. I've reviewed:
    • Razors
    • Condoms
    • Knorr Cooking stock
    • Pam
    • Arm & Hammer detergent tablets

  • Swagbucks: Ever heard of swagbucks? No, let me explain. Swagbucks is a search engine where you earn points as you search, you can use those points to get prizes. For example for 450 swagbucks you can get a $5 amazon gift card, for 52,999 swagbucks you can get a 32" 720 LCD HDTV, and there are sooo many more prizes in between.
My trick to it is I use the search engine in the morning when I wake up and search until I get my points, which is usually within 5 searches and the then I use it at night before I go to bed and do the same thing and get my points within 10 searches. Points can add up quick when you do it regulary (I get an average of 375 SB's a week). So sign up now and start earning!

Tricks of the Trade

If you're new to the freebie world, let me help you. 
Listed below are a few tricks of the trade.

1)Never give your credit card info to get a free sample...NEVER EVER 

2)Get a low balance Visa Gift Card for things that cost only a few dollars or cents, so you don't run the risk of getting over charged, signed up for a paid subscription, or heaven forbid scammed.

3)Don't give your real phone number on a free sample, unless you want phone calls, it's okay to give it out for a sweepstakes or instant win games (IWG) because they may need it to contact you if you won a large prize.

4)If you do not want to receive emails from companies, be sure to check/uncheck the boxes that say you don't want to receive communications from them OR create a different email address to use for samples only.

5)Zip code trick: If you ever encounter a freebie where it's only available in certain states, do the zip code trick, fill your address in, when it comes to the state put a different one, and then put in YOUR zip code. The post office goes by zip code NOT state.

6) Like to read and/or listen to music, but don't have the cash to splurge on them? Get Free music and e-books from Amazon

7) If you or someone you know is in the military, ask places you go if they offer military discounts (it's usually 10%) with a valid military I.D. Some movie theaters offer it, feed stores, restaurants (taco bell, kfc does in my area) don't be embarrassed to do it, if they offer it you may as well take advantage of it. 

8) Here's a list of Holiday Shopping Tips

Emi Yoshi Review

When I asked to do a review for Emi Yoshi on one of their products, I wasn't sure what to expect. The first time I heard of them, was when I got word of a giveaway they were doing for a set of their bowls on facebook, and with my kitten like reflexes...I missed them lol, not just once but 3 or 4 times (insert sad face).
