Free Pampers Swaddlers 360 Diapers

Free Pampers Swaddlers 360 Diapers

Pampers is back with a free Swaddlers 360 diapers offer that also comes with a $4 coupon for a future purchase.

Signup is easy – there's just a simple one-page form to fill out. They don't even ask if you have a baby, which is good for me. The previous time I requested a kid-reliant freebie, it resulted in the oddest interaction I've ever had with my neighbor. It seems people don't take kindly to strangers asking “hey, can I borrow your kid for a minute? I need them for a freebie.”

Free McDonald's Medium Fries

McDonald’s: Free Medium Fries on July 13

The next annual National Fries Day is coming up in July. In celebration, McDonald's is stealing their thunder and launching a “Free Fries Friday” where they'll be giving away free medium fries on Saturday, July 13. These freebies will be available all day July 13th with no purchase necessary.

Additionally, they're giving away free medium fries every Friday throughout the end of the year, as long as you make a $1 purchase on anything else. This promo is exclusively found in the McDonald's app – and don't forget the purchase requirement is waived on July 13!

I'll be sure to republish this next month so you won't forget to enjoy some french fries for lunch. Or dinner! Or how about breakfast?! Just not all three, because the employees would notice you coming back for more than one freebie. That is, unless you wear a fake mustache and fake beard during your second and third trips.

What, am I the only person who carries around emergency fake facial hair?


Free Kindle eBooks

Today’s Free Kindle eBooks

Here is the current list of free Kindle eBooks. Many of these are available to everybody! For the longest time, I thought they were only for Amazon Prime members, however I discovered anybody can read these free eBooks with any number of free Kindle apps. Be it on your phone, computer, or tablet, you can download a Kindle app and get these books for free!

They're split into different categories and were all free as of this morning, though please make sure they're still free when you go to redeem them since sometimes these promos only last for a few hours / days. You can basically think of this as the top 100 free kindle books available each day, give or take a few dozen.

Hopefully, you can find something fun to read. 📚 😃 And as usual, please check the price before you download. These free books are often time-based and will go up in price after a certain amount of time, so before you download, make sure the price is $0.00!

Free Summer Events, Activities, Freebies for Kids

50+ Free Summer Kids Events, Activities, & Freebies!

With summer in full swing (woooo!), I thought it'd be a good idea to compiled a list of all the free kids summertime events & activities.

Check out some of these free events before summer 2024 ultimately ends (boooo!)

It's important to point out that while many of these are traditional freebies available each summer, you may encounter some offers are slowly rolling back out due to last year's shutdown. Therefore, I strongly suggest calling ahead and confirming your local establishment is participating in any of these.

Get freebies and discounts simply by reading books!

The free reading programs are always a big hit each year. 11 companies such as Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million, Chuck E. Cheese, Pizza Hut and many more reward good behavior by offering freebies and prizes for reading. Most stores have a free reading companies guide or tracker that you can print at home, fill out as your child reads over the summer, then turn it in for freebies!

Kids bowl free every day all summer long!

In fact, they get two free games of bowling! All you have to do is register ahead of time.

“It's about that time for the return of the favorite kids bowl free all summer deal! Sign up and your children will get two free games of bowling every day this summer. That's valued at over $500.”

Don't forget kids skate free during the summer too.

Multiple locations in 36 states offer free kids roller skating sessions with the one-time purchase of a $4.99 pass. The pass lasts for 12 months, giving ample opportunities to take advantage of its value. If there are no locations near you, you can send a letter encouraging them to join!

Attend a free in-store kids event at multiple stores!

At least seven stores offer recurring, monthly in-store free kids events. Some of the most popular summer activities are from such stores as:

As more free events are found, I update them to the list so you never miss out.

Enjoy a show with cheap admission to kids movies (average $1) all summer long!

At least 17 different cinema and theater chains across the nation, both big and small, offer some sort of summer movie ticket admission deals. In many cases, you can either get free admission or super cheap tickets for G and PG movies. Some chains are also offering discounted concessions and snacks as well.

They're cheap, they're air conditioned, and they're all summer long!

Good grades and report cards freebies are a real thing as well!

Get discounts and outright freebies at 12 confirmed restaurants and retailers! We've found another half dozen potential freebies as well

Enjoy a weekend outdoors during free National Parks admission days

The next National Parks free admission day August 4, 2024! Pay no entrance fee at any of our nation's 58 wonderful national parks scattered across the country.

Don't get lost, especially since most states give out free state road maps.

Go fishing for free during all 50 state's free dates!

While some states only hold license-free fishing dates early in the year, others hold multiple dates throughout the summer and even into fall! Check out your state's dates and then go reel in a fish or two with the little ones! These free fishing days are awesome. Take it from somebody who learned the hard way that you needed a license to fish 😀

Explore the outdoors for free by Geocaching!

Geocaching was one of my family's favorite activities back when multiple young ones were running around the house. All you need is a phone or GPS to access over 2.5 million free geocaches hidden all over the world! No matter how big or small your community, you'll be surprised how many geocaches are nearby!

Reuse old pieces with free LEGO instructions

LEGO has a huge, searchable database of free LEGO instructions to download! Put those old toys back to good use by building a long-forgotten LEGO or maybe even something new!


Free Summer Movie Deals

2024 Summer Movie Deals & Freebies for Families with Kids

Eagle-eyed Hiffers (holy crap, how did you get an EAGLE'S EYE?!) know that my current offspring count sits equal to the number of home runs I've hit for the Seattle Mariners this season. That said, growing up with tons of siblings, I have an inkling for what it's like with bored, moping children around the house. For you see, I myself get bored. A lot. And if your kids are anything like me, it must be insufferable to be around them when they have nothing to do. Plus it's hot outside. we need some cheap, air-conditioned entertainment!

As such, here's a huge list of all the free & cheap kids summer movie events! Almost every theater chain has a dedicated page advertising their summer deals, plus a helpful list of participating locations. So be sure to make sure your local spot is holding a deal before heading out.

I've included both nationwide and smaller, regional chains so as many Hiffers can take advantage of these deals as possible. I'm sure there are more, so please leave a comment if you find any I missed.

Other Summer Freebies


Free CDC Health Publications

Free CDC Publications, Stickers & More

I originally posted about these free CDC publications and materials back in 2010. Over the following years, I've highlighted a few of their freebies, like the Tony Hawk anti-tobacco poster, the Quit Smoking paper notepad, and this Prevent Tickborne Diseases bookmark.

Well, I'm happy to say that all these years later, they're still offering a selection of printed copies on public health issues, factsheets, posters, activity guides, books, and other educational material.

Many of these free items have a daily limit, but they always refresh the following day.

In order to access these, scroll down and select an option from Material Type and click the blue Apply button. I selected “poster” and was given 184 options to choose from. Meanwhile, I see 19 children's reading material under “books.” In addition to these, they have cards, charts, magnets, postcards, stickers, and more.

Don't overlook the “Audience” filter, either. This helps easily find all materials for children, adolescence, college students, etc.

Fetch Earn Money from Grocery Receipts

Fetch: Earn Gift Cards with Your Receipts!

A while ago, I wrote about earning money by scanning your receipt with ReceiptPal. After cashing out an Amazon gift card with them, I started wondering what other apps pay you for snapping quick photos of your receipts. Turns out there are a ton and my absolute favorite of them all is Fetch!

Over the past three years, I've redeemed over $150 in free Amazon gift cards from points I earned with Fetch!

If you've been using Ibotta or ReceiptPal, then Fetch will seem just like home. Scan your receipt with your smartphone, earn points, then spend those points on gift cards. You're literally getting paid for everyday shopping you're doing already.

After downloading Fetch for either Android or iPhone, create an account and use promo code FETCH300 to get a signup bonus of 300 points! Then start snapping photos of any receipts and quickly rack up more points. A valid receipt just needs to have the store's name, the date, and the total spent. This can be a grocery, gas, takeout, restaurant, or any other type of receipt!

How Does Fetch Work

Earn your first gift card today

When I posted this last month, multiple Hiffers earned $5 gift cards right off the bat.

Thanks, Goob! In less than 10 minutes I downloaded the app, set up my account, scanned my grocery receipts from the last 2 weeks and earned enough points for a $5 gift card. This is awesome!!

Same for me as the previous commenter! Scanned the receipts I had in my wallet and along with the bonus (and a bonus for buying hot dogs, lol), got myself a $5 Amazon gift card.

I had a few recent receipts in my purse and, not knowing if they’d be accepted, decided to try and capture them. They were accepted and, along with the referral bonus, in about 10 minutes including sign-up time, I had enough points for a $5 Visa card. WooHoo! Of course I’ll be proactive now and build toward a real reward. Thanks…

How Fetch Works

One thing you'll quickly notice is how much more info there is with Fetch! Not only do they scan your receipt, but it'll actually break down what you bought into categories and give you a nice summary.

On top of that, Fetch gives bonus points if you buy certain products. These items rotate each week and you don't have to buy them in order to scan your receipt and earn rewards. However, if you happen to buy any of them, you'll get a few hundred or even thousand bonus points.

My absolute favorite feature is you have 14 days to scan your receipts in Fetch. ReceiptPal forces you to scan receipts within 5 days, which left me forgetting to scan tons of receipts. Now, I let them pile up on my shelf. Then I scan them each weekend and toss them away.

I find I'm earning points, and therefore gift card rewards, much faster with Fetch. Not only are their rewards easier to obtain by having lower thresholds, but even the time I spend in the app itself is small. The camera function couldn't be faster to snap a picture and move on with the rest of my day.

Pro Tip: If your grocery store has a self-checkout area, look for receipts other people left behind! Fetch will take any receipt, not just your receipts! 😉

Common Fetch Questions

  • Is there a limit to how many receipts I can submit? – You can submit up to 35 receipts per 7-day period.
  • Can I use coupons or other receipt rewards apps and still earn Fetch rewards points? – You bet! Fetch can be used with coupons and other apps, so you can save money and stack your rewards earnings on top. In fact, there's no reason not to use multiple receipt reward apps!
  • How long do I have to submit a receipt? – My favorite Fetch feature is you have a full two weeks (14 days) after the purchase date to submit your receipts.
  • Where does Fetch work and what stores participate? – Fetch works with most major grocery, convenience, liquor, drug, club, and big box stores. A full list of participating sites can be found on their website.

Have any other Hiffers used Fetch yet? What did you think about it!?
