Freebie FAQs

I get asked a lot of questions. Here are some of the most frequent ones.

  1. What exactly is this site?
  2. Started over six years ago, Hey, It’s Free! (HIF) is a site where I post free item available to anybody who wants them. These include samples, coupons, in-store offers, and more.

  3. What makes this site special?
  4. I’m glad you asked! Without a doubt, there are countless other sites out there where you can find links to free stuff. However, unlike those site, we only post 100% legit freebies. This means that whenever you sign up for a freebie posted here on HIF, you know it’s going to arrive!

  5. Do you give away anything for free?
  6. The only thing you will find here for free is lots of useful information and plenty of bad jokes. I post links to freebies on the main page about 3-8 times a day, all of which are run and operated by other companies. We don’t actually collect information or send out the freebies, we’re just the middlemen. So don’t leave your name, address, or other personal contact info in any comments here on the site because I don’t actually send out the freebies!

  7. Wait, what did you just say?
  8. I said don’t leave your name, address, or other personal contact info in any comments here on the site! If you do, it won’t help you get any freebies and in fact, you won’t get a single thing! So, to recap, please DON’T LEAVE YOUR ADDRESS IN THE COMMENTS. Got it? Good.

  9. Seriously, what’s the catch? Do I have to pay you money?
  10. You won’t spend a single dime here on Hey It’s Free!, unless you want to donate me some pocket change! All the information you find here is 100% completely free and will continue to be until this site closes or my left arm is eaten by a giant frog, whichever comes first. As far as the freebies, I only post ones where you can get them for free. No shipping charge, no “stocking” fee, nothing.

  11. So how do I get freebies?
  12. It’s actually pretty simple. Whenever you find a freebie you like, click the blue link and you’ll be taken to the company’s website. There should be a sign up form and after you put in your info, click submit and wait a few weeks for it to arrive! Rinse, wash, and repeat for as many different freebies as you like.

  13. How come so much stuff is free?
  14. The reason why you can get all this stuff for free is simple: companies give it away as promotional material. Most of the time the free stuff, such as hats and t-shirts, have a logo on them of the company giving them away. Other times you’ll see samples and trials of items that are new on the market and that companies want you to see and try. It’s really not as fishy as you think it might be and you’ll quickly see that a lot of the freebies I post on here are from big name companies that are giving away some decent stuff. Just think about it, the best way to get feedback on a new product or build buzz for it is to give away 10,000 trial samples.

  15. Is there a daily limit to how many freebies I can sign up for?
  16. Yes and no. Most companies will only send one freebie per house, per offer. However we post dozens of offers each week and each are completely separate from one-another, so you can sign up for each and every one of them.

  17. How many things have you gotten?
  18. Geez, hundreds? Maybe a few thousand? I’ve been signing up for freebies for over four years now and get something (like t-shirts, coupons, food, magazine subscriptions, etc.) in the mail every day. And remember, this was all for FREE!

  19. Can I submit a freebie?
  20. Absolutely! If you’ve found a freebie or even if you are with a company / website who is giving away something for free, let me know about it and I’ll most likely post a link to it! You’ll be everybody’s new hero. In fact, at least 50% of all freebies on the site were found and submitted by loyal HIF users.

  21. What does Hiffed mean?
  22. Basically, it’s a term we use to explain that a freebie died and became no longer available soon after it was posted on the site.

  23. What’s up with those Birthday Freebie coupons? Why do they all say Ryan on them? My name’s not Ryan!
  24. *sigh* Okay, first off, that’s three questions, not one. So here’s the thing. All the posts in our Birthday Freebies series contain a picture of the coupon I received. As in, those are my coupons. Not yours. You’re not supposed to print those images and take them into your local restaurant. I include the picture to show that the offer is legit, because there is a ton of misinformation on the Internet when it comes to birhtday freebies. In order to recieve your own coupon, click the blue link included in each post and sign up on the restaurant’s website. They will then email you a coupon when it’s close to your birthday.
