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 links to this list that have sent me free stuff to try or that I've received gift cards from.*

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.

Toluna Is a survey site that let's you take surveys and earn points that you can then cash out for things like gift cards.

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.

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.

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

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.

Product Report Card This site lets you take surveys and earn points that you can then cash out for an Amazon gift cards.

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 years 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.

YouGov Sign up with this site and take surveys for points that you can cash out for either cash or gift cards.

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. You do need to sign up with a smart phone number though in order to cash out because you have to verify your account with a text.

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.

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.

Pinecone Research  This is another great site if you can get in that sends you survey invitations where you can earn points that you can cash in for actual products or virtual prepaid cards, and gift cards. 

Social Nature - Sign up for an account and pick products that you'd like to try. They'll email you if you get picked to try the product for free.

The Upside - Sign up for an account and you might qualify for free products. You just have to take surveys, answer questions about the products you get and post on social media about the products.

Valued Opinions This site you take surveys that you can then cash out for gift cards. 

It's All Free Online - A website that finds free samples, unique testing panel opportunities and other free product opportunities that I haven't seen on other freebie pages.

  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.

  4. Awesome reference. Thank you!

  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?

    ReplyDelete
  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.

      Delete
  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

  24. A few of these are new to me. I'll have to take a look at them. Thanks for reposting this Mary.

  25. 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.

    1. There are a lot of places out there you just have to know where to look.

  26. I need to get more involved in the ones I participate. So many more than I knew about. Great list!

  27. And, I can second that e-rewards is legit. I've had an account for years. I have no idea how I got the invitation, but several restaurants monies later and I'm glad I did.
    I do Crowdtap, too. I don't do samples sites b/c I have too many allergies to be a fair product tester, but I'll have a look at a few others you mentioned.
    Thanks, Mary!

  30. Here in the UK I do surveys for OpinionBar for gift vouchers, and YouGov sends cash but it's taking ages to get to the £50 payout!

  41. You made it into a business LOL Are you also a coupon queen? We don't have coupons in my country.

    1. I used to be but stores don't double coupons anymore around where I live and they have made it really hard to use coupons. Like, you can only use one coupon for an item even if you are buying several of the same items and have several coupons.

  42. I've used a few of these, but one I see you're missing is Prolific, which I definitely recommend. It's like a more formal survey site based in the UK and they mandate a minimum wage so you don't have to spend 20 minutes for 5 cents. There's a minimum £5 cash-out to paypal which isn't too difficult to hit, and from there paypal can convert to USD or whichever currency.
