Free Snacks for Troops!

Free Slim Jims for the troops!

EDIT: Both of these offers from June 2014 are still going strong!

Slim Jims needs our help sending 1 million free Slim Jims overseas to our troops. Don’t worry, you don’t have to physically stuff any envelopes with Slim Jims. Probably because if you’re like me, you’d end up eating way too many.

Free Moon Pies Troops

Meanwhile some dude creeping in the clouds wants to send 50,000 free Moon Pies overseas as well! This ends June 2015.

Free McCormick Seasoning Mix

Free McCormick Seasoning

Answer two questions to see if you qualify for free McCormick Indian Essentials seasoning mix. Protip: don’t answer like a 12th century British cook. As for the zip code, no idea there. They didn’t like my NYC address.

Free ASPCA Pet Safety Pack

Free ASPCA Pet Safety Pack

This classic freebie is still available!

My family always had one of these free ASPCA pet safety pack at every home we lived at. My brothers and I even once put the correct information on them instead of creative insult names for each other!

Free Barron’s Magazine Subscription

Free Barron's Magazine Subscription

EDIT: Well look what’s back from 2010!

I always dreamed of becoming a robber baron, so I look forward to the many enlightening articles I’m sure to read thanks to my free Barron’s magazine subscription.

I also think this is the first time I’ve ever seen a RewardsGold survey that matched with the magazine. I came expecting to talk about my yogurt eating habits or my sock purchasing history.

Veterans Day 2014 Freebies

Veterans Day Freebies

Veterans Day is tomorrow and with it comes a cascade of freebies for those brave men and women who have or are serving. has a massive list worth checking out, so I’m only going to highlight some of the larger offers below. I can’t recommend checking out their master list though as it has over 100 freebies available on Nov. 11!

Unless otherwise noted, these offers are only for veterans or active military and will typically require some form of valid ID proving such.

  • Start the day off with a free breakfast from the following locations:
    • Denny’s has a free build-your-own Grand Slam deal going from 5am-noon.
    • Bob Evans is offering free hotcakes (all day long possibly?)
    • Baker’s Square is offering pancakes, french toast, or waffles.
    • Hy-Vee is offering a “free breakfast” without mentioning limitations.
    • IHOP‘s offer runs from 7am-7pm and is good for free Red, White, and Blue pancakes.
    • Krispy Kreme will give a free donut and coffee “to anyone who identifies themselves as a veteran or active duty military personnel (no ID required).” No lying!
    • Friendly’s, who also are offering free lunch or dinner!
    • Village Inn is also offering pancakes, french toast, or waffles.

  • Then follow it up with a free lunch from:
    • TGI Friday’s says “lunch is on us” and it looks to be a massive burger and fries.
    • Sizzler is serving up free steak, chicken, or shrimp. Add “walk into a bar” at the end of that and you have the start of a joke.
    • Texas Roadhouse has a larger lunch menu consisting of 10 free options.

  • Finally cap things off at Golden Corral during their “thank you” dinner from 5-9pm.
  • Applebee’s is offering a free meal off a limited menu all day long.
  • Red Robin will be giving away a free Tavern Double burger with bottomless steak fries.
  • Olive Garden has 7 free meal options valid all day.
  • Shoney’s is offering a free all-american burger.
  • California Pizza Kitchen will give free entrees from a limited menu (which I couldn’t find).
  • Chili’s offer is buried in the comments, but they confirmed that it’s all day and off a limited menu of about 6 or 7 items.
  • Starbucks will offer a free tall brewed coffee to veterans, active duty service members and military spouses.
  • Last up is Macy’s 20% off coupon code VETS, though I’m not sure how the heck they’re keeping average folks from also using it. *shrug*

Like I said, these freebies are only the tip of the iceberg, however they were some of the best offers I found. Enjoy and thank you!

Free Greek Yogurt & Pedigree Dog Treats


I have Ebola or the flu or whatever is currently going around that makes people feel like death incarnate, so the thought of eating free Newman’s Own Greek yogurt from SavingStar sounds as appealing as eating Kroger’s free Pedigree Stackerz dog treats. However the thought of crawling back into bed and moaning myself to sleep sounds awesome!

350 Free Kellogg’s Family Rewards

Free Kellogg's Points

Big news, everybody! As of midnight EST, Hey, It’s Free! will officially cease to exist and instead be known as the Free Kellogg’s and Redbox Emporium. It doesn’t have the same ring as HIF, but we do get to go from being Hiffers to Emperors.

MY DREAM HAS FINALLY COME TRUE! ALL HAIL BEFORE THE MIGHTY AND INFALLIBLE GOOB! Those who do not will, uh, be asked politely a second time? While we wait, here are your free Kellogg’s Family Rewards codes.

  • KFRBONUSPTSTWEET – 100 points

Free Redbox Rental Code

Free Redbox Movie

Another day, another free Redbox rental code. Gotta say I’m loving this new freebie staple. Code 5612RRTT will only be available for today only though, so don’t try and save this one!

Batch of Free Magazine Subscriptions

Free ESPN Magazine Subscription

RewardsGold has been the staple for free magazines as far back as HIF’s first days and they established the model of “take a random survey and receive a free magazine subscription.” Enter Rewards Survey and their batch of free magazines. In exchange for taking a 31 question survey on my wine drinking habits (I was happy they didn’t redirect me to a liver specialist at the end), I was given $20 in credit for a free magazine subscription.

You can either use that immediately or bank it and take another survey the following week, thus enabling you to get subscriptions from the $30, $40, or $50 tiers in just a few weeks. They’ll occasionally offer rare magazines like ESPN, so at the very least it’s worth building up some credit to jump on those offers when they appear!
