Finding freebies is easier than you may think.Don’t you love getting something for free? Do you know that many companies like to offer freebies as a good business practice? It’s true! Many companies offer freebies in hopes that you will simply fall in love with their product and go out and buy the full-size product. Offering freebies is a very practical tactic many businesses take to help bring in new business, especially when they are offering a new product.
There are a variety of places you can go freebie-hunting (look at the bottom of this article for some cool Web sites). This article will offer you some freebie tips to help you get freebies and make sure that you have the best chance to get the freebies that you would like the most.
Follow the Rules
This is very important. If a company tells you to fill out the form, fill it out in full. Follow all of the directions. If a company tells you to mail information to a certain address with a self-addressed stamped envelope, then do this. Many companies that offer freebies will receive many responses ? if someone doesn’t follow the rules, chances are that they will not send this person a freebie. A company has their reasons for asking you to follow specific directions. If you do not like the questions you are asked or the directions that are given, do not submit your request for the freebie.
Before you continue reading about the Finding freebies there is a special announcement we would like to share with you. Catalogs.com has negotiated special medicare rates for our vibrant community of seniors. If you are over the age of 60, you can head over to our Seniors Health Section which is full of information about medicare. All you need is your zip code and a few minutes of your time to potentially save 100s of dollars on your medicare bills.
Companies will get a lot of responses to a freebie offer ? especially a good freebie offer. Some companies will put a limit on their freebie offer (i.e. the first 5,000 to respond will receive the freebie). So make sure that your response is in as early as possible. When you see a freebie that you like, sit down and respond right away.
Finding freebies is quick, but receiving them can take time. Sometimes you will request a freebie and receive the item within a week or two weeks. Other times it will literally be months before you get a response from the company. Trust that you will get a response as long as the company still has the freebie offer. Rather than contacting the company, return to the offer and read the fine print to see if any information about delivery time is listed. Sometimes it will say within four to six weeks. Just be patient.
Share Your Freebies
