Freebies From Wal-Mart

One of the sites that Freebie Finder tracks is Wal-Mart Free Samples. I have been taking advantage of the Wal-Mart free samples page for a long time. From hair care and deodorant, to free contact lenses and dietary supplements, there are a lot of great samples.
The sample page is updated on a regular basis with new offers. I usually check the page once every week to see what new samples are available. You can choose to take advantage of just one sample, or sign up to receive all of the samples. Signing up is easy, and there are no long surveys to fill out or hidden offers that you must complete. You may be asked three or four quick questions, such as your age and your favorite brand of product, but the questions are quick and easy to answer.
One of the nice things about the Wal-Mart free offers page is that after signing up for samples, I have not been bombarded with spam or multiple email offers. The only change I have noticed is the fact that I now seem to be on the postal mailing list for Wal-Mart's weekly flyer. All of the samples I "ordered" came quickly and in generous sizes. One time, I actually received a full-size bottle of a product.

Freebies From Costco

Costco, like other warehouse stores likes to give out free food samples while you shop. Now, you don't have to visit a store to get some great samples. Simply fill out a quick form online and the samples come to you.
At the time of this entry, Costco doesn't have a dedicated page for its samples, so you have to search for them. Hopefully they will get a sample page soon, and make it easier on us. For now, just go to the Costco site and type "sample" in the search box. That should bring up the current samples. And just like for Wal-Mart, you'll have to keep checking back for new offers.

Twitter Freebies

The title of this site says it all, it's an online resource to find tweets from people who are giving things away. The main page comprises a list of tweets, updated in real time, that shows the items you can get for free.
In actuality, the site grabs any tweet that includes words like “free” and “freebie”. This sometimes causes you to see tweets that have nothing to do with a freebie, but it's still worth a look.
