As mentioned, the only resource that you will need is the internet. Obviously, you will need a device to connect to the internet as well. With these two items, you are ready.

#1. Setting Up An Email Account For Receiving Freebies

The first task in this endeavour is to set up and email account solely for the purpose of receiving freebies. The main reason for this is to reduce the amount of junk email you receive in your ordinary email. For you to receive the freebies that are on offer you have to give up your email address to the companies providing the freebies.

Unfortunately, once you give these companies you email address, you are assured of receiving a lot of emails that you are not necessarily interested in and have little to no benefit for you. As such, you might consider them as spam emails. Nonetheless, they keep coming and the more freebies you receive from different companies the more they are bound to increase. To avoid this mess, we recommend creating a new email address.

There numerous high-quality and secure email services such as Gmail and Yahoo Mail. While setting up the email, make sure the address is simple and easy to remember as you do not require a complicated email address for this task. However, since the email address will contain your personal information, make the password is strong.

Using the email, you should create a Facebook account as well. Many of the social media savvy companies are now focusing on giving freebies through social media sites (Facebook Likes come to mind) as much as they do using the email. However, you need not worry about your privacy. You can always adjust your privacy settings to make your account as private as possible, making you invisible so that people cannot find you.

Signing Up To Freebies Websites

The best way to find businesses giving free stuff is to sign up to websites of communities that lists various businesses providing freebies. However, you do not need to sign up to all of such websites as they most often provide the same information. Only once in a while will a freebies website list an exclusive deal.

A good website to use is wowfreestuff.com. The good thing about this website is its simplicity. On the far right of the website, is a list of all website currently providing free stuff. That is the list you are going to use. However, before opting into certain deals, ensure that they are not competition. You would not want to spend a great deal of time filling in forms only to gain nothing from your effort thereafter. Another good website is the Vonbeau website.

Setting Up Where To Receive The Free Items

When it comes to setting up the mailing address, many people just opt to use their regular mailing addresses. However, some do opt to use an additional P.O. Box to double the amount of free stuff they receive. However, you should note that some businesses do not accept P.O. Boxes.

After setting up everything it is time to receive the freebies. Ideally, you would want to receive anything and everything even when you are sure that you will not be using a particular item. You can always give it to a neighbour, a family member, or a friend. Plus they are free.
