If you signed up for a free Audible.com trial membership last week (or are already a member), be one of the first 100,00 to add $5 worth of free credit to your account. Simply log-in then visit this promotion page to get the free credit.
I’m not sure if they have any items listed under $5, but how about this. For $5, I’ll come to your house and follow you around for a few weeks while periodically reading aloud your latest book.
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.
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.
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!

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.
[thanks Saving with Shellie!]
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.
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.
EDIT: No longer available.
These free Kimtech touchscreen cleaning wipes have to be an improvement over my current cleaning method, which is the breathe on my phone and then wipe it with my shirt. It has a 62% failure rate because I still can’t remember to get dressed most mornings.
Amazon has updated their free Price Check app for your iPhone or your Android. Long story short, it lets you scan a product while shopping to see what the price is on Amazon.
For today only, Saturday December 10, you can get up to $15 on Amazon for free. You get a a 5% discount, up to $5 and on up to three items, just by checking a price. So let’s say you’re planning to buy a digital camera for a Christmas gift. If you’re going shopping today, swing by Best Buy or whoever else sells the camera, scan it with your Price Check app, then place the camera in your shopping cart on Amazon. If you then decide to purchase the camera on Amazon within the next 24 hours, you’ll get a 5% discount (up to $5) on it for free. And then you can do that again for two more additional items.
It’s kind of weird and complicated, but I know people are buying larger items this time of year and $15 is $15. The hardest part of all this for me is getting dressed and actually venturing out into the real world. *shudders*
I bought a Kindle last summer and promptly let it gather dust in my desk for a few months. Flash forward to January. I get snowed in, the power goes out, and I discover my impulse buy while rooting around for candles. I haven’t put it down since. I’m the only person who gets addicted to an electronic device during a power outage.
Luckily I’m not lacking for stuff to read thanks to all the free Kindle books that are available. They add a few dozen every week and it can honestly get overwhelming to go through them all. You can check out the top 100 Best Selling free Kindle books, but make sure you’re looking at the ones in the right column.
And remember, you don’t actually have to own a Kindle. You can download the free app to your PC, Mac, iPhone, and Android, among others.
EDIT: I called AT&T twice to verify this. The first rep said this is only for iPhone users while the second said it only supposed to be for iPhone users but will work for anyone, so YMMV.
If you’ve watched 10 minutes of broadcast television lately then you know the iPhone is now on Verizon’s network. It used to be only available for AT&T users so you had bajillions of people using their network despite hating the company’s horrendous service. Well now as a “thank you” to people not jumping ship over to Verizon, AT&T users can text yes to 11113020 and have their account credited with 1,000 free bonus rollover minutes.
Yep, today’s pretty slow…
