TINSTAAFL. (There’s no such thing as a free lunch). A popular saying from the early 1900s.
But thanks to the internet there is free stuff. Doing a Google search for “Free Stuff” netted 41,800,000 results. In going over the offerings I was reminded again and again of TIONSTAAFL.
To be sure there were offers where all you had to do was provide your personal info. Address, email address, etc, and they would send you free stuff. It’s also true that a lot of them are smaller sample-size of their products, but free is free.

There are also people just giving stuff away. Looking through websites such as Craigslist, freecycle and back page, I was able to make arrangements to pick up a computer desk with a ding on the side, a standing lamp that needed a light bulb as well as a laser printer that needed a cartridge. With a little work and a little time I could refurnishing my entire office.
But buyer bewares, (even if it’s free). For a lot of the free offers you’ll end up filing out a survey or taking a poll. For the most part as soon as you start filling out that “short survey” you’re facing 10-12 pages of offers, only to find out you have to accept at least one of them to qualify for the “free” item.
If you stick to manufacturer's website and check all of the requirements before giving out your personal information, you should be able to enjoy the many free offerings on the internet.
Most free offers are not entirely free. Some on the internet require you to participate in some type of offer to get your free item. Either sign up for mailing list or maybe take a survey.
The word free makes most people's ears perk up. Anything free is good, right? There are many true deals out there.
Many of the survey sites give away free items when you take their opinion panel surveys and quizzes. Write to a company telling them your thoughts on a product. More than likely you'll get a coupon back in the mail.
