Why do companies give away free stuff? What’s the catch?
Lots of companies give away free stuff as a way to learn more about potential customers or as a form of advertising. In return for a freebie you will often be asked for your name and address, which in addition to being needed so that they know where to send the freebie, can also be used to send you advertising (you can usually opt out of this when signing up for the deal). Other companies may ask you to complete a short survey or questionnaire, and sometimes they might ask that you share the freebie or offer on Facebook or Twitter.
What sorts of freebies are given away?
There really isn’t a limit to the range of free stuff companies give out. We’ve seen free samples of beauty products, pet food, coffee, chocolate, hoovers, video games and more. When it comes to competitions prizes range from magazine subscriptions and food hampers, right up to flights and holidays abroad for the family.
How long does it take for free stuff to arrive?
It differs by company and by offer. Some offers have a long running date, so you might need to wait for the offer to finish before any freebies are sent out. After they have been sent out you should expect to receive them within a month. If you do not receive a freebie that you have been promised try getting in touch with the company via email or social media.
How do you find the free stuff and offers that are posted on the site?
It’s a mix between offers we find ourselves, offers that our readers send to us, and offers that companies send to us. We only ever post free stuff, deals and offers that we believe will be of benefit to our readers – if we think the freebie is no good we won’t post it.
How does Free Stuff Now funded?
Companies sometimes pay us a small amount when someone signs up to receive a freebie. For deals, we sometimes receive a percentage of the price paid. You can read more about our affiliate program disclosure here.
