Seven Ways to Get Freebies Online!

People are always asking me how I get so much free stuff, so I’m going to share some of my secrets with you! There are so many places out there that make big promises and fail to deliver. After a few years of experimenting, I’ve discovered what works. Here are a few of my favorites, with tips on how to maximize your earnings!


This is an amazingly easy way to earn some freebies! All you need to do is install the Swagbucks toolbar, (which is totally safe… I’ve been using it for over a year now) and then use that toolbar to search online. Randomly, you’ll get a notice after searching that you have just won some “swag bucks”, which go directly into your account. Then, you can redeem those bucks for free stuff. Easy, right? I use them for Amazon gift cards, and I earn a new $5 gift card every couple of weeks. Each time you earn a gift card, you can take the code that they send you, enter it into your Amazon account, and let them add up until you are ready to use them!

Inbox Dollars:

I’ve been using Inbox Dollars for years now. This site rewards you for your activity with actual cash! You earn cash for checking out the emails they send you, shopping, watching videos… But the fastest way to earn free money is to fill out the surveys that they send you. The more often you fill out a survey, the more often they will send them to you, and each one is worth $1-$2, and takes about 10-15 minutes. After you have earned $30, you can request a check, which only takes a couple weeks to reach you.


This is one of my FAVORITE ways to earn money when shopping online! I am new to Ebates, but have been using it for about 4 months, and have already earned enough for my first $40 check! (I admit, I do shop online a lot!)  The sign up process to start using Ebates only takes a couple of minutes. Then, every time you shop online, you go to the Ebates site first. Search for the retailer you want, and if they participate, Ebates will give you a list of coupon codes to use, and show you how much cash back you will earn on your purchase. So you get codes for a great deal, and earn money back for shopping you would have done anyway! Love it :)


This site is a great way to get free products and services to try out, and to learn about new companies or promotions before anyone else does. After signing up, it’s up to you how much you want to participate… They only send a few emails a month, with invites to new campaigns you can choose to be a part of. I’ve gotten some cool stuff from BzzAgent, and am a big fan!

House Party:

House Party is amazing! You sign up to host parties for products or companies that you are interested in. If chosen as a host, House Party sends you a really great party pack filled with free products, coupons, decorations, and other fun stuff to help you throw a sweet party for your friends while sharing the featured product. I’ve had a few HouseParties, and I can tell you, it is definitely something worth doing. This is a great way to entertain on a budget!


This is another great survey site! It is really clean and easy to use, and has a great assortment of rewards. One thing that I really like about MySurvey is that they reward you for EVERY survey you attempt, even if you do not qualify. Another great way to earn Amazon gift cards!


This site offers so many ways to earn points! Like Ebates, you can start here for shopping, and earn points for each purchase. MyPoints will also send you emails with companies to check out… You always get a few points just for clicking on the ad, and earn more if you make a purchase. You can also play games, complete surveys, and sign up for some of their free offers to earn additional points. Those points can then be redeemed for FREE gift cards! I have earned so many rewards from MyPoints over the last couple of years!

These are just a few of my favorite sites! I’ll be posting many more. But I do personally use all of these companies, and have earned rewards from every one, many times. Let me know if you use any of these already, and what you think… And please post about any other great ways to earn freebies that are not on my list!
