Free UPS My Choice 6-Month Membership

Free UPS Membership

It’s a slight pain to go through the registration process, but if you pull it off soon (it should only take 5 minutes, tops) then use code BLKZZMOT5 to get a free 6-month membership to UPS My Choice. I spend almost every waking hour working from home and I still somehow miss 95% of my packages, so this is definitely a nice freebie for yours truly.

I entered the promo code on the payment screen during registration and was able to submit the form without entering any credit card info since the charge was $0.00. That way they can’t charge us anything in six months, especially if I’m not able to find us another code! :)

If you already have an account, then click Tracking, then Access UPS My Choice. Next click Manage Delivery Address then wonder why it’s so incredibly buried as you finally click on Upgrade to Premium. NOW you’ll be able to enter the code and bump yourself on up.

Free $50 Cash from Capital One 360

Free Capital One 360 Checking Bonus Cash

Quite a few people were skeptical about the free $176 cash money offer from CapitalOne 360 last month, but as the image below shows, it was legit! If you missed out, then I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is that Capital One 360 is still running a promotion, albeit for slightly less free money. The bad news is I can’t find my baseball glove and I have a game in three hours.

New Capital One 360 online checking accounts can get $50 in free cash as long as you make 3 purchases with your debit card within 45 days. Seriously, the full steps are:

  1. Apply for a free 360 Checking account.
  2. Use your debit card to make 3 purchases within 45 days.
  3. $50 will be added to your account on day 50.

That’s it. Simply making 3 total purchases should trigger the free money bonus. I made a few extra purchases last month just to be safe, but feel free to only make the minimum.

So how many other Hiffers got the $100 bonus today? What are you going to do with your free money?!

Last Day: Free $176 Cash from Capital One 360

Don’t forget today is the last day to take advantage of the sweet offer of a free $176 deposit from Capital One 360.

In case you missed it, new members to Capital One 360 (previously known as ING Direct) can earn $76 by opening a free 360 Savings account by the end of today. After that, you can earn an additional $100 by opening a free 360 Checking account by the end of today as well.

  1. Apply for a free 360 Savings account.
  2. Deposit $500 or more into your account.

That’s it. The $76 should hit your account by July 4th. At that point you’ll have $576 in your account and you can withdraw your initial deposit. It’s worth noting the free $76 can’t be withdrawn from your account for 30 days. Though I don’t really see a drawback to that since you’ll earn interest on it and the withdrawal limit is lifted by August.

I personally use my 360 account as an emergency fund. You never know when you’re suffer an accident or find a really great deal on a vintage Ninja Turtles lunch box.

Now getting the $100 requires a few more steps, but it’s still pretty easy.

  1. Apply for a free 360 Checking account.
  2. Use your debit card to make 5 purchases OR use CheckMate to make 5 deposits OR any combo of the two that equals 5 withint 45 days.
  3. $100 will be added to your account.

Again, after you make 5 total deposits or purchases, you trigger should activate, you’ll get the $100, and you can do whatever you want with the cash. I read through the fine print and didn’t see any specifications on the deposits, so I’m telling my friends to simply open the Checking account then make 5 small deposits of $5 or $10 each.

Free $176 in Cash from Capital One 360

Here’s a classic example of a deal I’d previously only share with my friends and family on Facebook. I hate posting anything that’s not a straight up freebie, but passing on a free $176 is too hard. If even one Hiffer gets this, I’ll be happy.

Basically, new members to Capital One 360 (previously known as ING Direct) can earn $76 by opening a free 360 Savings account before July 3. After that, you can earn an additional $100 by opening a free 360 Checking account before July 3 as well. Want more details?

  1. Apply for a free 360 Savings account.
  2. Deposit $500 or more into your account.

That’s it. The $76 should hit your account by July 4th. At that point you’ll have $576 in your account and you can withdraw your initial deposit. It’s worth noting the free $76 can’t be withdrawn from your account for 30 days.

So there you go. I don’t know about you, but $176 sounds good to me. If you have any questions, leave a comment and I’ll do my best to answer them!

Free $2 Amazon MP3 Credit

Here’s yet another free $2 Amazon mp3 credit in the form of code MP3S4ALL. You have to use the credit (as in use it to buy something, not just add it to your account) by midnight PST tonight. Sorry for the late notice.

[thanks to the dozens of Hiffers who sent this in!]

Free $2 Amazon Instant Video Credit

Free Amazon Instant Video Credit

I don’t know why Amazon all of a sudden caught the Facebook bug, but in order to earn this free Amazon $2 Instant Video credit, you have to share a link on Facebook to your favorite movie. Like the music credit last week, you can immediately delete the shared link after you get the credit.

The credit has to be redeemed by 11:59 PM PST on May 29, so make sure you don’t accidentally try to use it later this week.

Free $2 Amazon MP3 Credit

Free Amazon mp3 Credit

It’s not every day you find a freebie that enables your friends to laugh at your questionable taste in music. At least that’s what I assume the people pictured above are doing. Because in order to get this free Amazon $2 mp3 credit, you have to share a song you like on Facebook. Simply copy the link to a song on Amazon, paste it in the box, hit the share button, and the credit is yours.

Of course, you can immediately delete the shared link on Facebook after you get the credit.

Free $2 Amazon MP3 Credit

Here’s yet another free $2 Amazon mp3 credit. The code you’ll want to enter is MOMROCKS and it expires April 22. Of course I spent five minutes entering momsrock, which got me nowhere. I talked to my mom an hour later and she laughed at me when I mentioned this story. So yeah, she rocks.

Free $2 Amazon MP3 Credit

In order to obtain your free $2 Amazon mp3 credit, click the yellow “Enter Your Code” button and submit HITUMBLR. I don’t know why we’re greeting a social networking service, but then again I stopped asking freebie-related questions in late 2009. Now I just nod while thinking of a dancing cow, chicken, and turtle.

Freebie Sites You Need To Sign Up With

I’ve noticed lately that more sites are offering freebies only to people who are already have accounts on their sites. If you’re a veteran Hiffer, chances are this post isn’t for you because you’re already registered everywhere below. But some newer Hiffers may be missing out on stuff and if there’s one thing I won’t stand for, it’s wearing constrictive pants. After that, it’s people I like missing out on freebies and I like all of you.

So take a few minutes to sign up with the sites below.

Kraft First Taste – Probably the best site on this list. I’ve received tons of stuff through them, however most are in the form of coupons valid for one free full-size product.

VocalPoint – Their freebies tend to come in waves and it’s been a while, so I feel an approaching surge. When registering, make sure you say you’re a female as they don’t like men.

Pillsbury, EatBetterAmerica, & Betty Crocker – All of these occasionally offer 10,000 freebies of a new product, but stipulate that only people who were already members can sign up. I’m lumping them together because they’re all General Mills sites.

ShopText – As we’ve written before, ShopText offers freebies via text messages. You can get their offers without previously registering with them, however it takes a few extra steps and that wasted time could cause you to miss out since so many people sign up for these freebies. If you register now, the system will recognize your text in the future and automatically know where to send the freebie.

P&G Everyday Sampler – Again, you can sign up for this when you decide to request their freebies, but you might as well get it out of the way now. They offer giant batches of freebies every three months.

I’m sure I forgot a few, but those are the main ones off the top of my head.
