How I Get Free Stuff and Make Money Online



*I thought I would share this post again for those of you that didn't see it the last time I posted this. I've updated my list and added a few more link to the end of the post that have sent me free stuff to try.*

I tell my friends and family all the time how I get free things coming to me and some of them have tried it and they don't have the same results that I have. So I am going to tell you the websites that I belong to in order to get free stuff and maybe you'll be able to get free stuff too.

Swagbucks Sign up here and search like you would on Google or yahoo to earn swagbucks periodically. Turn in those swagbucks for Amazon.com gift cards or other merchandise.

Inbox dollars sign up with Inbox Dollars and click on the emails they send you and shop with them for points that you can turn into real money. This one takes more time to do but in the past 3 years I have gotten $120.00 from them.

Vocal Point Sign up with them, comment on the message board and other topics on the site and periodically they will send you free samples and coupons for full size free products as well as coupons that you can share with your friends and family. But you have to comment a few times a week on the boards and topics in order to keep the samples coming, but it is well worth the effort. I get samples and coupons all the time.

Samples From Target Target gives out samples periodically. But they go quickly.

My View This is a survey taking website. You sign up, take the surveys they send you and get points for the ones you qualify for. Then turn them into cash or prizes.

My Survey This is another survey website that you take survey to get points which you can turn into prizes and gift cards.

Harris Poll Another survey website to take survey and earn points that can be cashed in for prizes and gift cards.

Zoompanel Another website that has you take surveys and gives you points for them that you can cash in for prizes or gift cards.

American Consumer Opinion Sign up with them and when they send you surveys that you qualify for, you get money that you can cash out after you have accumulated $5.00

Smiley 360 Here's another place you can sign up and earn smiley points and qualify for free products that you test at home. I've tested more than a dozen free products at home so far.

Hey it's Free This is one of the best place to find free samples online. I used to use a lot of sites but this is one of the best ones I've found for free samples that actually come. And they have a fb page where members post other freebies they've found.

She Speaks- Sign up for an account and sign up for free samples and full size products to test. Sometimes they just send you an email asking you to fill out a form to see if you qualify for the product testing they are doing. I've had good luck with testing products with them.

House Party- Sign up to host a house party and if you get picked they send you all sorts of freebies, coupons, and free products to test and share with your house party guests.

BzzzAgent- Sign up for an account and they will send you emails letting you know which products they want you to product test. I've had a lot of success with this. They have sent several full size products for me to test.

Freebie Shark- This is another really great place to find links to free samples. I use this site a lot for signing up for free samples and they have a fb page where other members can post freebies they find.

Samples From Walmart- Every once in a while Walmart will post samples of things you can sign up for on their page. These samples go fast so I have this page bookmarked and check it every day.

Mindfield Online Internet Panels- This is another survey site that I wanted to let you know is genuine. You sign up and they send you surveys that you complete if you qualify for and you earn money that you can cash out once you have reached the $5 mark.

e-Rewards Opinion Panel- Now the reason I am adding this site is because I wanted you to know that if you ever get an invitation from this site that they are indeed legitimate. They are a by invitation only site but once you get in..you can make enough reward points to get really good rewards like Starbucks gift cards and other things like subscriptions to magazines. Most people don't know about this site because you have to wait for them to invite you and they find you when you become a member of one of their affiliate sites but they don't tell you which ones. lol But if you ever get an invitation...accept it.

Bing Rewards- Bing rewards you with points as you use their search engine. Points that you can turn in for things like Swagbucks, gift cards to Starbucks, Applebee's, Amazon and more.

Influenster- A site where you sign up for an account, fill out some surveys and do small tasks to improve your score. Then they send you free products to try out at home. I have only been a member of this site for a couple of weeks and have filled out a few of the surveys and done a few tasks and was just approved for my first Voxbox (home testing product). If you want to get free products at home to test, this is a good site to sign up for.

Pampers Rewards- If you have a baby and use Pampers products there are codes on the inside of the packages that you can add up to get free kids toys and products. Even if you don't have a child, you can find the free codes on the freebie sites I've listed here like Hey It's Free, and add your points up to get things for yourself like giftcards, post cards from Shutterfly and free samples. The rewards change all the time and I've gotten free samples, disposable razors and gift cards.

Kelloggs Rewards- Did you know that on the inside of all Kelloggs cereal boxes there's a code that you can enter at this site and accumulate points for things like books, coupons, housewares, kitchenware, electronics, toys and gift cards? So if you eat a lot of cold cereal this is a great site for you.

Paid Viewpoint- This is a survey site where you get money for each survey to complete and when you reach $15 you can cash out through Paypal. As of right now the only way to cash out through them is Paypal, so you will need a paypal account.

Popsugar Sample Squad- This site has a limited number of samples that you apply for when they are available and then write a review about them after you receive them.

Crowdtap- Is a site where you interact with brands by answering questions, tweeting, posting pictures,  posting to fb and taking polls. You can apply for sampling parties and get free products to review and samples to share. Everything you do gets you points and at the end of the month you get a chance to win gift cards based on how many points you have.

My Points- It's a site where you answer surveys, and complete tasks in order to get points that you can exchange for gift cards.

InstaGC- This site is a lot like Swagbucks if you like that site. You watch videos, complete tasks, and use their search engine to get points that you can exchange for gift cards.

Simple Solutions - This site is all about Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. They send out free samples or full size boxes of it for you to try and have you fill out some surveys.

Generation Good - This is the Seventh Generation site about their products. They've sent me several free Seventh Generation samples and products to try and review.

PinchMe - You sign up for an account and once a month they give out samples of products. You have to write short reviews for the products on their site in order to get more and you don't qualify every month but they send out quite a few when you do get them.

Snuggle Bear Den Community - This is the site for Snuggle Fabric Softener. You sign up for an account and fill out a few surveys and they might send you free samples to try out. So far I've received a free Snuggle stuffed bear that I gave to my grandson and a free full size bottle of Snuggle Fabric Softener to try.

  2. Somehow...I think that if I do all of those...I will never have time to read! Thanks for sharing even more great sites...I might earn an Amazon certificate one of these days.

  3. You're welcome Shelley.

    Elf, I've gotten so many free books from doing some of these things. I even turned my points in for enough amazon gift cards a while back to get a large $100 ferret cage for my rats.

  5. I tried to do the free surveys thing once to win some Amazon gift cards but I am afraid I don't have the patience :)

  6. Awesome, thanks for all the links! I'm keeping it at the top of my bookmarks for future reference. :)

  7. Thanks Mary :)
    My husband drinks ton of soda and I was just thinking the other day what an idiot I was for not collecting those points off of the boxes. I'm going to start now, but I cringe when I think about all those points I threw out!

  8. Thank you! I use Bing all the time and have received gift cards. I'll try your other advice for more free stuff!

  9. Thanks! I use a lot of these but there are some new ones on here.

  10. Awesome, I see some new ones on there! I like MyPoints as well. Some of the other sites such as BzzAgent use them, but you can also make points from just clicking on a couple of emails each day. I've made about $300 in gift cards from them, mostly for Staples.

  11. Thanks for this great list. Many of these I have heard of but a few I have not so I will be sure to check them out. I will say that I absolutely love Swagbucks! It's so easy to earn $5 Amazon cards with very little effort. I recently signed up for Jingit. It's too soon to tell for sure whether I like it or not (so far it seems great; I've earned $2 just for watching a few short ads) but I think it's worth checking out.

  12. Thanks Amy. I hadn't heard of Jingit, thanks for letting me know about that one.

  13. I am a member with a lot of these sites and I have to say Swagbucks is by far the best.

  14. lady Lilith- I believe I got the first referral for chatabout from a fb post of yours. Do you still use that site?

  15. Woot! Thanks Mary! I do a few of these now and they're great. Started a couple of them this week because of you :D Will have to start checking out the others :)

  19. You RULE! These sound like great opportunities. In my younger days, I worked as a mystery shopper for a while. They paid me to shop. I tried doing it a few years ago and realized the pay just SUCKS. Back then it paid a little better...now it's not even worth it. You drive across town, purchase an item, then have to return it an hour later and get your money back. They'll pay you, like, $7 to do all that...no thanks!

  20. Very cool, I'm going to check these links out^^!

  21. Love that you take the time to do this and it's totally fun to get neat stuff all the time in the mail. I remember when Wal-Mart used to do freebies all the time years ago, but they're not as frequent now. I just received 700 swagbucks for doing a panty review and got 2 free pairs, too! (lo)I know it can be time consuming, but it seems worth it. Awesome post! Hugs...

    1. Wal-Mart and Target used to send out free samples at least once a month. Not very often they do it now. 700 swagbucks is great!

  22. Can't wait to try some of these awesome sites.. Only one I've tried is swag bucks and so far only have a $1.00 Amazon online card.

    1. Swagbucks takes a lot of time. I usually make between $10 and $20 a month with Swagbucks. But that's doing a lot of encrave, games, watching videos and searching. Hope you find a few sites you like.

  23. Love, love, love that you share some new to me places to visit. Agreed. Swagbucks can take up some time, but when those gift cards come in on-line, we can do the ahppy dance! Isn't it great to get freebies? Hugs...Ro

  26. It's really neat to see it all listed out like this. I have signed-up for a dutch survey company, but you have to do quite some surveys before you can get the money cashed out and you can only pick gift cards. But I still do them now and then.
    It's great how much stuff you can get for free though if you know where to look.
