Nothing is really free right? Where is the catch?

Wrong! You can get all kinds of stuff for free. Various companies on the web want you to visit their webpage. Marketing today is harder and web savvy companies are looking for better ways to connect with their target audience. IF they offer you a free pen, DVD or perfume sample, it costs them pennies to mass produces a few thousand samples and You are directly interacting with their product or company.

 For comparison, a more "familiar" way of advertising is  TV commercials. One 30-second television commercial costs on average, around $400,000 and to make that ad can cost well over $250,000. Suddenly the 3 Dollar DVD and several cents on shipping doesn't seem so unrealistic does it?

That being said, there are some scammy type companies online and we do our best to sift through and only offer you top quality freebies from around the world.

I love Totally Free Stuff! How do I Bookmark/Favorite /Make you my Home page?

Totally Free Stuff is updated daily so check back often to get more great free items before they run out. The best way is to have us as your home page is to Click Here

Some of these pages are scams, What can I do to protect myself?

Like most things in like a few bad apples can ruin your free stuff experience for all the good ones!  With a little knowledge and thought you can protect yourself from some of the scams.

Some of these companies will start sending you mass amounts of email or spam after you sign up. They do want you to come back to the site again and again after all. You should Never use your home/personal/work email address. You can sign up for one of many free emails like G-mail, Or Hotmail,  or others located here.  If you need more help, click here for a more in depth tutorial.

Same thing goes with Phone number. Many of these companies may call you for various other things. Most companies should not need your phone number if they are mailing you something. If the website requires it, use at your own discretion. Contest will often ask for your phone number because they WILL call if you win, not mail.

 

Ok... So you have your free email and know about some of the scams out there, Now what?
