If you don’t like getting free things, you are lying. To yourself, to us, to the world. Free stuff is the absolute greatest. Too often, however, it’s more like “free” stuff — there are hoops to jump through, credit card information to enter, and it all just seems too good to be true. That being said, here are a few legitimately free things you can get on the internet right now.
1. Coconut Oil
First of all, coconut oil is a miracle product. You can cook with it, make Magic Shell ice cream topping with it, take off your makeup with it and generally anything else you want. On Thrive Market, the online store where you can buy all manner of hippie items, you can get a free jar of coconut oil (worth $18!) just by signing up.
While you will have to pay a little shipping, you’ll also get 15 percent off your first order.
2. Free Chocolate
Who doesn’t love chocolate? And especially when it’s free. Sign-up for the Godiva newsletter and you receive free chocolate every month! Not a bad little treat to get in the mail.
3. All-Natural Diapers
Because we all know that babies do exactly three things exceptionally well. And also, diapers are expensive. Luckily, you can snag some free diapers from The Honest Company, and know you’re wrapping your baby’s butt in sustainable, plant-based, latex-free materials.
Bonus Tip: It’s not free, but The Honest Company makes the best hand lotion in the history of the universe. Buy some along with the diapers and you won’t regret it.
4. Free Drinks At Dunkin’ Donuts
Sign-up for DD Perks, Dunkin’ Donuts rewards program, and you will get a free drink when you first enroll plus a free drink on your birthday.
5. Seventh Generation Products
When you sign up online for Generation Good, a community of people dedicated to using Seventh Generation’s environmentally friendly and plant-based products, you will have access to coupons and discounts for free products. Since traditional laundry detergent is not only expensive but hard on the earth, this is definitely a deal.
Vitamins are one of those absurdly expensive things you can never quite justify spending money on. Mostly because you never finish taking an entire bottle. Well, Centrum has attempted to break you of that habit by making vitamins in the form of mints—AKA vitamins. They’re free, you might as well try them.
Magazines are great, but subscriptions can get expensive—and honestly, do you always read all 12? Luckily, you can get a lot of great magazines for free. All you need to do is complete some surveys or just play a game. Check out ValueMags for details.
8. Miniature First Aid Kit
How many times have you ripped a hangnail or gotten a blister and thought, “wow, I could really use a bandaid right now”? Too many to count, I’m sure. Luckily, by just signing up for the Hi-Desert Medical Center, you can score a free, purse-sized first aid kit. Blisters, begone.
9. Freezer Labels
Batch cooking is the best way to save time, money and energy, but sometimes it can be hard to discern what’s spaghetti sauce and what’s chicken parm. These free adhesive freezer labels solve that issue so your freezer is as organized as the Library of Congress.
10. Nursing Pillow
Nursing pillows are expensive, but they’re a huge boon for new moms who simply can’t raise their arms a second longer. This one is worth $44.95, but when you enter the code “PENNY1” at checkout, you’ll be credited with 100 percent of the pillow’s price – all you have to do is pay for shipping.
11. Feminine Pads
It’s an absolute travesty that feminine care products are so expensive. Luckily, Poise is offering a free sample of pads and liners that are perfect for any situation. Plus, they’re so thin and discreet you can keep one in your bag for emergencies.
