I have never posted about a freebie on here unless I have actually received it myself. I am worried about leading others astray. The problem with that is that by the time I get the item the offer may be over. Like the Costco Diaper sample. Sorry. Here is one that is still going that I actually have received.

Coupon booklet from Home Made Simple
Has over $27 in saving on Procter and Gamble products including a coupon for a FREE bottle of Cascade Crystal Clear Rinse Agent.

I signed up for this today and I guess we will see what happens.

Free pair of MIVODESIGN Scissors

When I first started with all this couponing stuff I did not sign up for freebies.
Gradually I have become more educated on which one's to sign up for.

Here are a few tips for when you sign up

* I use a junk email address,(if you don't have one get one from gmail)
* Sometimes I use another name
* I rarely put a current phone number (I can not stand telemarketers)
* I never put my real b-day. I chose one that I can remember and puts me at my age.
* I do give my address since I want the freebie.

Good tips Monica. You are so right though. Freebies go fast, some within the time you even post them! And some freebies can take up to 2 months to arrive. You can usually tell by the website, and even some of the questions they will ask you to provide. I have gotten about 90% of freebies I have applied for the past 6 years. The great thing is that if you keep sending off for them regularly, they keep coming steadily in your mailbox! It's like Christmas! I have some great places to get freebies and tips on free samples on my blog here:

Hey Monica - I'll try for the coupon book now. I also signed up for the scissors the other day. But I'm not sure why a web-design company is offering free scissors, so, we'll see. Maybe just for advertisements - attract potential clients, huh?
