The free Epic Games video games page now show both the active freebies and the upcoming free games. These high-value games are available only for a week to download for free. However, once you go through the checkout process, the computer game is yours to keep forever! It will be added to your account and free to download, even after the giveaway ends.
The current games are available through July 9, 2020 at 11:00am.
- Hue – $14.99 value!
- Sludge Life – $14.99 value!
Hue is a vibrant, award-winning puzzle-adventure, where you alter the world by changing its background color. Includes full colorblind support, using symbols as a color aid.
SLUDGE LIFE is a first-person / open-world / vandalism-centric stroll through a polluted island full of cranky idiots and a vibe so thick you can taste it. Play as upcoming tagger GHOST set on staking their claim amongst the graffiti elite.
These games typically retail around $20-$40 and are such a great deal since you keep them forever! Even if you don't intend to play the game now, it's nice having a free pool of new games to try out whenever the mood strikes.

Dang, I was really hoping for the next Song of Ice and Fire book to be listed there. Guess I'll have to wait another decade or two.0
Sampler.io is giving free Clinere ear cleaner to certain members who qualify.
I struck out, kinda like the Mariners over the past two decades. I clearly wasn't in Clinere's demographic. Unfortunately, I have no idea who they're looking for, so good luck.
That last sentence perfectly sums up my dating life!0
Arm & Hammer has a long-term rebate offer through 2020 where you can get a free Cloud Control cat litter, up to $15.99 in value! There are actually two cat litter rebate offers you can ultimately get. Two free boxes of cat litter might last my cat a whole day!
You can submit your rebate either online or by mail. Simply press the yellow “submit this offer” button for the correctly sized cat litter, then click “Accept Terms and Submit this Offer” and follow the instructions.
The rebate form says you need the original green peelie sticker from the box, plus the receipt and original UPC. However, if you submit your rebate online, they don't ask for the peelie. All you have to is take a picture of the receipt and enter the UPC. I've confirmed many other people have gotten their rebate already by submitting online without a peelie.

Mercury Magazines is giving away rare free Conde Nast Traveler magazine subscriptions. Sign up today and in 6-8 weeks we'll get our first issue reminding us what the outside world looks like. By the end of our 8 issue subscription, maybe it'll actually be safe enough to travel to some of these locations!0
One of the most frequent, non-freebie questions I get asked is “got any tips for starting my own site?” I gotta admit, it's a really hard question to answer! However, that's exactly what I'm going to attempt over the coming months with this series.
I'm kicking things off with one of the only services I use on a daily basis to run HIF, the FMTC's Publisher Toolkit.
Years ago, I signed up for their free plan in order to easily access their affiliate database directory and over time it grew to become a tool I seriously rely upon to streamline my workflow. I can't even imagine trying to run HIF without it.
Let's say you run a niche site and you've decided to keep spammy affiliate offers away from your blog (good for you!) You've also joined a few affiliate programs to promote, but they're inevitably spread across multiple networks. As it stands, you have to regularly log into every network in order to lookup programs, pull links, create deeplinks, or find new deals to promote.
If you don't run a website, what I'm describing is akin to grocery shopping at 10 different stores each week. Imagine being forced to shop at Store A for milk, then Store B for bread, then you drive to Store C for vegetables only to remember at the last second they're sold over at Store Z, etc. Sounds like a pain in the butt, doesn't it?! And it is!
Affiliate Directory Database
Enter FMTC's amazing Affiliate Directory. This feature alone is a huge highlight in my book, as they allow both free and subscribers to search their affiliate directory of over 14,000 programs. The database grows by the dozens every week and acts as a one-stop shop for juggling large amounts of affiliate programs from handfuls of networks.0
Taco Bell is giving away a free Chalupa Cravings Box, valued at $5, today only (June 30). This freebie is only available for drive-thru pickup and you'll need to make a free Taco Bell rewards account, either online or via the mobile app.
The Chalupa Cravings Box includes a full meal of the following:
- Chalupa Supreme
- Beefy 5-layer burrito
- Crunchy taco
- Medium soft drink
- Cinnamon Twists
Their site is getting absolutely hammered right now. It took me a few tries to get my account registered and I still haven't been able to complete the checkout. But here's how to get your free lunch or dinner today, assuming Taco Bell fixes their servers:
- Create a free Taco Bell account, then click “Get Offer” or add the Chalupa box to your cart.
- Add a Chalupa Cravings Box to your cart & checkout.
- Select your nearest Taco Bell location & a time for pickup via drive-thru.
- Get your free meal!
I'm not going to lie, Taco Bell is dropping the ball hard with this deal. It's a great freebie, but it's also 2020. The days of pre-announcing freebies, not preparing your servers for the flood of traffic, then having your site crash should have ended a decade ago. But hopefully Taco Bell gets things fixed and you're able to get a free meal today!1
I've always said we need more rewards for eating cereal. There are so many other things we could be chowing down on; cookies, doughnuts, raw sugar cane. Yet here we are, eating cereal, and maybe getting a decoder ring if we're lucky.
Well, not today! Today we enter code FOURTHOFJULYWKFR to receive 100 free Kellogg's Family Rewards points and live like kings! On second thought, I'd rather have another decoder ring.
In addition to the free points, entering this code also resets Kellogg's clock to losing your points!
This code expires July 16, 2020. As always, I keep a list of active free Kellogg's codes. It's great for both new members and current members who might have missed any.31
