I love freebie and get my daily clues as to where to snag them from both:
However, every so often, I also check: www.freakfreddies.com to see if there are any more obscure ones that I have missed. Sure enough, there are always a few.

Are there any free sample sights that really work? Most I have tried don't!

More free sample sites! I used that Walmart site from a while back (now on my bookmark bar). I told my mom and she found me some more sites in one of her books! I thought I would share the ones that worked for me!
Have a happy day! If I find more, I will be sure to share!

The key is finding a good freebie newsletter and you will get a lot of samples and free stuff. I signed up to a bunch of them and then weeded them down to two really good ones: arlanas and momanddads. Just type those names in and you will get to the newsletter. They are wonderful. (04/30/2007)
I own a free sample website and I only post free samples that require NO SHIPPING, no handling, no credit card, no cost, no participation, nothing required, just fill out a form and get a freebie.
If you would like to see the site, here is a link:
Would love to have new members! Anyone? (04/30/2007)
I have tried many so called "free sample sites" but you either have to fill out a bunch of stuff or you don't receive anything. I am on a fixed income and would love to know of some real, free sites that send real samples. Thanks very much. God Bless you!

Try walmart.com. They offer several freebies each week. (05/01/2009)
I like following sites:
Use an RSS reader to make it fast and easy to check the sites. (05/07/2009)
Try manufacturers websites like:
Many offer free samples and really good coupons. (05/07/2009)
I like, Shop4Freebies FreebieEmpire, FreebieSwamp, and FreebieSnatcher. If you vote for one of these websites it will take you to a bbl list click on this and it will take you to the list of other sites. If they say you must participate click "off" as fast as you clicked on, they're rip offs. Good luck and have fun. (05/07/2009)
Here's the link for the Walmart samples:
Once it opens click on "free samples". Their samples change often so check it weekly :-) And don't be discouraged if you don't receive every single sample you request because they are each mailed on a first come first serve basis. (05/07/2009)
You could try joining one of the many many freebie groups. I belong to freebeesforme at yahoogroups.com and they only put really free freebies on there. It also has a cafe you can join to talk about freebies and everything else under the sun, lol. I also get two newsletters arlana and freestuff and it's all free. (05/07/2009)
I have been using spoofee.com for some time. I usually have great success with everything on there. It's very user-friendly and they have many forums, such as instant wins and sweepstakes as well. Happy sampling! (05/07/2009)
I use www.mysavings.com. Just check the samples section every morning and you'll find links directly to the manufacturers' web sites. You don't have to download a bunch of stuff that probably leaves cookies on your computer. (05/08/2009)
I use www.freebieusa.com. I love it! (05/08/2009)
With the holidays just around the corner, it's time to start getting gifts for friends and family. I have spent quite a few hours surfing the net for freebies. I have already received quite a few samples. I put them in a large 2 gallon ziplock bag as soon as I get them.
There are a number of websites out there that have great and easy freebies for anyone. Some of my favorites are Walmart.com, Mercury magazines (you can get 1 year FREE mag subscriptions), momsview.com and cereal.com. Just type in free samples in the search bar, and have fun browsing! Walmart is very fast on sending out samples, usually within a few days.
I created an email address specifically to use for only freebie websites, helps to cut down on spam from main email addy. I also signed up for surveyspot and mypoints. I get gift cards from mypoints and checks from surveyspot. The gift cards go into the freebie bag, and the cash from the checks goes into the freebie bag. I have close to $100.00 of free stuff to give for gifts and stocking stuffers.
If you start now, you will be able to get a nice amount of freebies, and if you are faithful and work on it regularly, you will have a lot of stuff for next year. Have fun and good luck!

This is an excellent site.
There are no offers that require you to buy anything to get a freebie. I started at the last page and worked backward and my mailbox was surprising me every day for ages. If you become a member (also free), you will have access to the members forum where the better stuff is located. I also play free games on the net to make extra money. Good luck. (11/01/2007)

Try Harris Poll, http://www.harrispollonline.com/. You have to be patient, as it takes a little while to rack up enough points through the surveys, but they have a lot of nice rewards. I've earned almost $50 in gift cards in the past 4 years I've been a member. (11/08/2007)
Another good one is my survey, they actually pay you to take surveys, surveys are simple to do and no catch, they will pay:
Check out http://www.spoofee.com/. It is an excellent site and I have gotten many free items and samples. They have a lot stuff such as valuable online coupons, excellent shopping opportunities and a section just for free items. (11/19/2007)
Hi! I regularly visit the following websites about once a week and my mailbox stays full of free samples!
I hope you enjoy the freebies!
By Cheri in SC
The best place I have found for freebies is Girl Talk Freebies and Fun. They have the most up to date postings with no junk or spam. They are also a friendly group which is also a plus. Check them out, you will be glad you did!
Love it! (01/10/2009)
