A Freebie Helped Save a Lost Toy

hobbes-freebie-photo-book

This isn’t a freebie, but I recently read an article on a boy who lost his favorite toy in an airport and loved this part:

If a boy named Owen suspects his stuffed tiger named Hobbes has a secret life, the staff of Tampa International Airport won’t disagree. Owen recently lost Hobbes at the airport — and when he reclaimed the tiger, he also received photos of Hobbes touring the facility.

When Owen returned from Texas, he was reunited with Hobbes and given a bound book of photographs that showed what his tiger had been up to. It was all the brainchild of Airport Operations Center Manager Tony D’Aiuto, who says he used a coupon to make the photo book at a drugstore.

Look at that! A freebie (and a little elbow grease) putting smiles on faces worldwide!

Free Water Bottle

Free Water Bottle

Camel is giving away free water bottles that you get to customize no less. Mine features a wolf wearing a helmet alongside a tiger donning a fedora because … well why not?!

Click Activities then Bottle Lab to get to the freebie section.

EDIT: A few people had trouble finding where to click, so I made this handy visual guide.

SampleSource Freebie Pack

SampleSource Freebie Pack

The yearly SampleSource freebie pack has returned. These always go fast so hop to it, order a box of freebies, and make sure two of your friends are around to laugh at you while doing so!

I was able to request:

  • Breathe Right Extra Clear Nasal Strips
  • Garnier Fructis Full & Plush
  • Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Brazilian Smooth
  • Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola
  • Nature’s Bounty Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin and Nails Gummies
  • Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White
  • Truvía Natural Sweetener

Free Amazon Dash Button

Free Amazon Dash Button

… ….

Is that thing legit? Seriously? … Alright then. It looks like Amazon is giving away free Amazon Dash buttons to select Prime members. What’s a Dash button you ask? Apparently they’re either A) a pre-April Fools Day prank, for which I will never forgive Amazon, or B) a new invention that allows you to order household product with only the press of a button! They claim to have 254 items to pick from with more coming soon.

Given that I’ve posted tons of Prime membership deals over the years, I figure a few Hiffers out there might qualify for this. Or at the very least want to join me in taking the bait.

Free Krome Lighter

Free Krome Lighter

Hiffers aged 21+ can request a free Krome lighter to set whatever they want on fire. Speaking of which, look at that realistic flame! I feared I burnt my fingers after lightly brushing the screen this morning.

Free Mailing Box at Staples

Free Staples Mailing Box

There’s no way I’d go for this freebie alone, but if you’re planning to visit a Staples today or tomorrow, then here’s a coupon good for one free mailing box. The best part is you can use it for so much more than mailing! Like, uh, carrying things. And storing things! Oh, oh, and carrying things to where you store them! Does that count?

Free Pocket Clip

Free Pocket Clip

I guess a free pocket clip is what you’d call that above. Though I’m not sure what we’re supposed to actually clip to it. If history is any indicator, my fingers will be a few of the items. It also comes in a heck of a lot of colors. I went with Vulcan Black, but only because Cylon Chrome wasn’t available.

Free Custom 3D-Printed Bracelet

Free Custom 3D Bracelet

Here’s a really neat freebie, by Google nonetheless, that’s new to me. I’m enamored by the idea of home 3D printers in the not-too-distant future. Now while this freebie isn’t the television or deluxe LEGO set that my inner Goob would prefer, a free custom 3D-printed bracelet is a nice start. Though try not to panic like I did when you can’t think of anything cool to put on your freebie.

Free Treat Greeting Card

Free Treat Greeting Card

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a free Treat.com greeting card, but the offer’s back until 11:59pm Tues, Sept. 2. Promo code 1NEWTREAT at checkout should get the job done. Just make sure to swap out the stock photos if you get a custom card like the one above.

Actually, on second thought, leave them in for added hilarity!

Free Disney Family Decal

Free Disney Family Decal Sticker

My version of this freebie is pretty lame since it’s just me and two dogs, but perhaps you have a more robust collection of people for your free Disney family decal. My dogs wouldn’t even sit still long enough for me to put a fake hat on them in the decal.
