Free Star Wars Cardboard Viewer

Free Star Wars Cardboard Viewer

I’ve been trying to snag one of these free cardboard viewers for most of 2015 with no luck. They’ve been given away by random companies and tied to the weirdest promotions, but so many people want them that supplies tend to exhaust within hours. Luckily Google seems to have a ton of Star Wars themed viewers available today!

If you’re not familiar with cardboard viewers, they’re designed for new Android and ioS smartphones to fit inside them. You then put the viewer on your face and, paired with video shot on a specific type of camera, are treated to a cool, semi-VR video experience. It sounds stupid, but people I’ve talked to who have tried it out swear it’s neat. The New York Times even tried some VR-content this past autumn and it was a big hit.

You’ll need a credit card on file with the Google Play store to request one of these, but the final charge should say $0.00.

Free USB Portable Battery Charger

Altria sent me a Cease & Desist asking I remove their promotion image for … whatever stupid reasons they have.

Is this free USB portable battery charger from Black & Mild made out of wood? I’m no electrical engineer, but I’m fairly certain my phone needs a little more than sawdust to wake me up every morning at eight. Okay, nine. GEEZ, FINE, TEN! What is this, the Spanish Inquisition?!

This looks like a killer freebie. Black & Mild are promoting these as “phone chargers,” but they look to be generic batteries that can be used to power Kindles, tablets, and even laptops in a pinch. I’ve carried one of these around in my backpack for years and they’ve saved my butt more times than I can count.

Free 12 Years a Slave Audiobook

Free 12 Years a Slave Audiobook

How does a free copy of the 12 Years a Slave audiobook sound? I bet a lot like the actual book.

Free Audiobook Download

free audiobook

I’ve posted this offer every summer for the past few years and people seem to enjoy it despite the credit card hurdle, so if this is something you might enjoy, have at it!

Every summer I go to a music festival or two with my friends and family. This year that entailed a 24-hour roundtrip car ride which would have been greatly enhanced with a free audio book download in my opinion. Seems like it would have been the perfect solution to end the 90 minute argument my brothers and I had over which starter Pokemon was the best. It’s a small miracle everybody who departed with us made it back home now that I think about it.

Offer Details

I want to point out you have to use a credit card to sign up. You get the free audiobook with a 30-day trial. You can cancel anytime during those 30 days and you won’t be billed a cent. However, after 30 days, they’ll charge you $14.95 a month. Here are the details on how to cancel your free trial if you choose to do so.

Free Pair of Headphones

Altria sent me a Cease & Desist asking I remove their promotion image for … whatever stupid reasons they have.

So these free earbuds from Black & Mild are basically a free pair of headphones. To make matters easier, I believe the exact same login info from yesterday’s Copenhagen offer will work on Black & Mild’s site.

I guess this means I can finally sing at the top of my lungs on the subway without having to listen to myself! Now I just need a bucket of free earplugs to hand out to my fellow passengers.

If you download their free iPhone app, then you can pick up a coupon for a free 7-Eleven medium slurpee. This also works for their free Android app for all you Droid users out there.

After downloading the app, fire it up (minus actual fire) and tap the dollar sign at the top and create a free account. You should then see the offer pictured above. Make sure you wait until you’re at the store to click it because there’s a 15 minute timer once you do so!

Free Plants vs Zombies iTunes App

Free Plants vs Zombies iTunes App

I wrote about Plants vs. Zombies last Halloween, causing many Hiffers to subsequently yell at me for getting them hooked on such a fun, addictive game. What can I say? Wasting time is my speciality. If you missed out then, you’ve got another opportunity to snag the game since Plants vs. Zombies is now free thanks to Apple’s “App of the Week.”

Now get out there and kill those zombies! Preferable while at work or in school.

Free Bayer Contour EZ Blood Glucose Meter

Free Bayer Contour EZ Blood Glucose Meter

EDIT: I believe this offer is still active, however their site is throwing up errors when you submit the form. I’d try again later.

Enter code 200 on the first page and you’ll be able to request a free Bayer Contour EZ blood glucose meter. I didn’t request one because I didn’t want to take away from somebody who could actually use this. Of course that means if I ever get sick then a few Hiffers needs to come check my glucose for me.

Free Plants vs Zombies Game

Free Plants vs Zombies Game

I was first introduced to this free Plants vs. Zombies game via Jorge Garcia’s blog, AKA Hurley from LOST. That may be one of the oddest sentences I’ve ever typed. That said, it’s an insanely addictive and fun game and we can all get it for free. All you have to do is use code PEAH8R between now and 11/10.
