Current Freebies

Remember that when companies offer freebies, it’s to gain new customers. Please only take advantage of those items that you conceivably might actually buy in the future. Read The Ethics of Free Stuff for clarification.

Okay, that’s covered! Get ready to actually get something in the mail besides bills! Here is my list of current freebies.

Iams Promise Pet Food – With three dogs and a cat, we go through a significant chunk of change every month in pet food. We usually go with the higher end stuff because the couple of dollars more we pay for the bag of food is worth the “low residue” (read, “less poop”). Iams has never used the fillers that were the focus of the recent recall. Sign up and get a coupon for a free four-pound bag, or $6.50 off a larger bag (better deal!).

Diet 7up Taste Kit – Okay, any “diet” soda to me tastes nasty, but 7up promises theirs tastes the best. If you’re a diet soda drinker, register here to get your free taste kit. They’ll mail you samples of Diet 7up plus samples from two of their competitors. Judge for yourself if they are as good as they claim.

Sunsilk Hair Therapy – Sign up to receive a hair care pack including shampoo, conditioner, and detangling spray. I bought the yellow Sunsilk a couple of weeks ago because I had a high value coupon. I really like it. It’s a little pricier than what I’ve been using, but as long as I keep find the coupons I’ll probably use it.

AARP Brain Health – Do you have a senior in your household? We do. AARP is giving away a free Hoyle Board Games CD to seniors. It’s to keep brains sharp. Games included on the CD are Backgammon, Battling Ships, Checkers, Chess, Chinese Checkers, Dominoes, Pool, Connect Four, Mahjong, Mancala, Mastermind, Pachisi, Reversi, Rummy, Scrabble, Snakes & Ladders, and Yahtzee. Our household plays Scrabble and Chess online, but I’m sure my dad would enjoy the backgammon.

More free stuff next week!
