In Store Freebies

Free Pretzelmaker Pretzel

Free Pretzelmaker Pretzel

Did you know April 26 is National Pretzel Day? LIAR! Of course you did, I just told you. Geez, pay attention. Anyway, this mean we get a free Pretzelmaker pretzel at participating stores. Technically you can also get one from non-participating stores, but all the goodie-goodies out there call that “stealing.” Well if snagging a pretzel and running out the door as fast as possible isn’t an option, why the heck did I run track for so long in high school?!

Veteran Hiffers may remember that in years past, Pretzelmaker asked us to tell a joke in order to get our freebie. However this year they want us to “share a message of kindness on social media then show us in-store.” I guess they didn’t like our jokes :(

Free Great American Cookie Today

Free Great American Cookie Company

I don’t know what’s taking so long, but somebody needs to make a calendar with all the important dates on them. I’m not talking about Christmas, Halloween, or Flag Day here, but the really important ones. Like National Cookie Day, which is tomorrow, Dec. 4! To celebrate, head to your nearest Great American Cookie and receive a free regular chocolate chip cookie!

Coupon: Free Waffle House Waffle

Free Waffle House Waffle

If there’s one thing I’ve learned running HIF, it’s that Hiffers love free waffles. Enjoy.

You’ll thank me the next time you’re out drunk at 5am and realize you have a coupon in your wallet for a free Waffle House waffle. Though to be honest if you’re thinking about coupons at the crack of dawn while intoxicated, you deserve some massive props.

The coupon doesn’t expire until Nov. 24, 2015 so there’s no rush on killing those brain cells. Note the coupon is only valid Mon-Fri.

Also it’s worth noting that most (all?) Waffle House’s (Hice?) will accept mobile coupons. That means instead of printing the coupon, pulling the coupon up on your mobile browser in the restaurant should work just fine.

Finally, for those of your unfamiliar with the wonder that is Waffle House, please allow one of my personal heroes to enlighten you. Until recently, Anthony Bourdain had never set foot in a Waffle House. Luckily for us, that changed recently.

Free Lowe’s Build & Grow Clinic

Free Lowes Build & Grow Clinic

The next free Lowe’s Build & Grow Clinic will occur on Saturday, November 14, at 10am. Children will be able to build a free #48 car with a pull back motor. Meanwhile parents will be free to stare at way too many toilets, light fixtures, and power tools while feebly assessing their home improvement skills.


Space is typically limited, so I suggest you register on-line to guarantee a spot.

7-Eleven: Free Coffee this Week

Free 7-11 Coffee

If you downloaded the 7-Eleven app to get last week’s free Orbit gum, I hope you kept it on your phone because now you can use it to get a free coffee every day through Oct. 18. Each free cup also counts towards their 7Rewards “Buy 6 cups, Get 1 free” offer, so make sure to get your card punched! (that’s not a euphemism).

IS: Free L’Occitane Anti-Aging Cream

free loccitane anti-aging cream

Here’s a coupon good through Oct. 27 for a free 8ml Divine anti-aging cream at your nearby L’Occitane store. What makes this freebie so celestial? I think it’s Martian dust.

Target: Free Swiffer Items

free swiffer duster kit

It’s not your typical freebie, but Target has a few promos running this week where you can get three free Swiffer items plus a little Target credit on the side! For starters, now through Oct. 3, you get a free $10 gift card when you purchase three select P&G Household items. Since Swiffer is made by P&G, you can use one of the many Swiffer coupons available now to get three of them for free!

An example of this would be:

  • Use 2 computers to print 3 $2/1 Swiffer Dusters coupons (here’s another coupon link if it helps)
  • Buy 3 Swiffer Duster Short Handle Kits at $3.99 each
  • Get a $10 Target gift card
  • Final Price: $12 OOP – $6 in coupons + $10 Target gift card = $4 money maker!

You could alternatively use:

Expect more of these types of in-store, 100% pure freebies being posted to HIF in the future.

[thanks Passion for Savings!]

Free Haagen-Dazs Cone Day


Did you know the free Haagen-Dazs cone day is Tuesday, May 12 from 4-8 pm? You did? Well that means either somebody already told you or you’re a mind-reader. GET OUT OF MY HEAD, YOU WARLOCK!

I have to commend the person / robot / brilliant dog running the Haagen-Dazs website. They added a simple filter to their store locator to show locations participating in this freebie. Bravo.

Free Carvel Junior Ice Cream

Free Carvel Junior Ice Cream

Stop by your local Carvel tomorrow, Thursday April 30, from 3-8pm for a free Carvel Junior soft serve ice cream cup or cone. It looks like they’ll even gift wrap the cone for you. I can’t imagine how that could possibly go wrong.

Free Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream

Free Ben & Jerry Ice Cream

Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day snuck up on me yet again. It probably did for you too as it’s today from noon until 8pm! Now comes the hard part: do I wait until later to get my free cone or do I say screw it and go right this very instant?
