Free Cane + Austin Miracle Pads

Free Cane + Austin Miracle Pads

For a limited time, you can request 10 free Cane + Austin miracle pads. So what is this?

Maximum anti-aging results, minimal effort. Comparable to a 30% glycolic acid treatment, these one-step pads exfoliate, even skin tone and visibly reduce the appearance of age spots and acne without a trip to the dermatologist office. The doctor is inโ€”the palm of your hand.

Oh, that sounds much better than what I assumed. I thought these were pulverized walking canes from Texas' capitol.

Where to get a free flu shot

Free or Frugal Flu Shot for 2021-22 Flu Season ๐Ÿ’‰

Working from home provides all sorts of hidden perks. I have 24-7 access to snacks. Impromptu naps can strike at any moment. And I rarely have to interact with humans and the outside world!

However, if you actually “leave your house” and “encounter other humans” on a regular basis, chances are you might catch the flu each year. Enter your yearly seasons flu shot!

For starters, if you have health insurance, the Affordable Care Act requires they cover the cost of your flu shot in many situations.

If you're over 65 years old, then you may also get a flu shot covered by Medicare Part B.

At the bottom of this post, I've collected all the major retailers offering flu shots along with their prices, perks, and other important notes. Many of these are priced for people without insurance

If you don't have health insurance, HIF's free drug card helps you get the absolute lowest price! Print yours out today and start saving not just on flu shots, but prescription drugs and even pet medications!

What is the flu vaccine?

Flu vaccines help develop antibodies in the body about two weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are used to make the vaccine. In fact, the CDC recommends a yearly flu vaccine as the first and most important step in protecting against influenza and its potentially serious complications.

Each year, there are many different strains of the influenza viruses. Research and study help indicate which will be the most common, at which point the vaccine is tweaked for the current year. The most common vaccines are “quadrivalent,” which protect against four different flu viruses:

  1. Influenza A (H1N1) virus
  2. Influenza A (H3N2) virus
  3. Two influenza B viruses
  4. Two influenza B viruses

This is your standard-dose flu shot. Several different brands of this type of flu shot are available and they are approved for different age groups. Some are approved for children as young as 6 months of age. Most flu shots are given in the arm (muscle) with a needle. One quadrivalent flu shot can be given either with a needle (for people aged 6 months and older) or with a jet injector (for people aged 18 through 64 years only).

There are also “trivalent” vaccines that protect against three different flu viruses. Two of the trivalent vaccines are designed specifically for people 65 and older to create a stronger immune response.

Some of you might be thinking “wait a minute…what if I catch a flu strain that isn't in the vaccine?” Well, you'll get the flu! However, by getting the flu shot ahead of time, your symptoms will be much less severe than they would've been had you not gotten the flu shot.

The CDC has a great breakdown on the key facts of the flu vaccines.

Is the flu vaccine safe?

Absolutely.

Obviously there are exceptions based on your specific needs, requirements, and conditions.

But for the vast majority of the population, flu vaccines not only are safe, but help save lives. Not just yours, but those around you! Herd immunity is a very real and important concept, which far more individuals rely upon than you might realize.

Are there risks? Yes. But that's life. Mitigating risk is why we still drive cars, but wear seat belts.

When should I get vaccinated?

According to the CDC:

You should get a flu vaccine before flu begins spreading in your community. It takes about two weeks after vaccination for antibodies that protect against flu to develop in the body, so make plans to get vaccinated early in fall, before flu season begins. CDC recommends that people get a flu vaccine by the end of October. Getting vaccinated later, however, can still be beneficial and vaccination should continue to be offered throughout flu season, even into January or later.

Flu vaccine tips

In order for your flu shot to go smoothly, make sure to wear loose-fitting clothing and bring your insurance information, if you have any.

Many stores also allow you to print a copy of their vaccine consent form at home and fill it out ahead of time.

Free & Discounted Flu Shots ๐Ÿ’‰

Here are all of the stores, pharmacies, and grocers offering free and discounted flu shots for 2021. I also included whether or not you can get a free covid-19 vaccination as well.

As you can see from the table, a lot of places stopped advertising the cost of flu shots without insurance. The average cost when I started this list in 2019 was around $30-$40.

Possible Locations for Free Flu Shots ๐Ÿ’‰

Country Health Department – It's worth checking with your local county or city health departments. Hundreds of them scattered across the country offer free flu shot clinics during certain dates. Here's a great locator to finding your local clinic.

If that doesn't work, here's another database directory of all the local health departments across the country.

Employer – Did you know the flu costs an average of $7 BILLION in lost earnings each year? As a result, many large places of employment will offer their employees free flue shots each year. The collective heard immunity helps keep flu from sweeping through the office and saves your sick days for longer vacations ๐Ÿ™‚

College & University – Many on-campus health clinics offer students free flu shots each year.

VA Health Center – Veterans enrolled with the VA health care system can always get a free flu shot at more than 70,000 VA health care facilities, in-network retail pharmacy, or urgent care location without an appointment. All you need is this form and proper ID.

Wrapping Up

As you can see, the flu vaccine is safe and easily accessible for free.

If you know of any places that I missed, please let us know in the comments!

Stay safe this year, Hiffers!


Free Esquire Magazine Subscription

Claim Your Gift of a 2-Year Esquire Magazine Subscription!

Mercury Magazines has a returning offer of a 2-year complimentary Esquire magazine subscription! A forest equal in size to Connecticut has probably been razed thanks to all the free magazines I've posted to HIF over the past 15 years.

That's why I propose we all give something back to Mother Nature. I know it's a bit unorthodox, but I buried old Esquire editions in my backyard so they'll one day sprout into new trees. Recycle, reduce, and reuse just wasn't enough for me. Isn't the circle of life wonderful?!

As with other Mercury Magazines offers, you only have to answer six short questions about your profession before submitting your mailing address. You can skip any subsequent offers by clicking “No Thanks” at the bottom and you never have to give out your credit card or payment info whatsoever.

This offer is valid through September 30 or until supplies expire.


Free Grubhub Plus and Promo Discount Code

Free 30-Day Grubhub+ & $7 off First Food Delivery!

Did you know you could soon have a delicious meal from local favorite restaurants delivered straight to your door at a discount?! For a limited time, new users can get the great following deals from Grubhub:

New User Grubhub Promos

Let's break this all down. To start, new users get $7 off a $12+ Grubhub order with code AFF7 at checkout in their mobile app. This is available to all new users, regardless of whether or not you take advantage of their additional Grubhub Plus offer.

Alternatively, you might want to use code AFF25 and save 25% off your first order of $15+ via the mobile app. Again, this is for new users only, so I would plug in both codes at checkout and see which saves you the most money ๐Ÿ™‚

To use either of these codes in app, you'll want to look for the “Add a promo code” option during the checkout process. It can be found on the last page of the checkout, right before you submit your order.

Remember, you need to use these codes within the Grubhub mobile app for them to work!

Free Grubhub Delivery Promos

On top of these two promos, if you haven't used your trial of Grubhub+, now is the perfect time to do so! You'll get 30-days for free and unlock free delivery on all orders over $12+.

Grubhub+ also gives members a free meal every month and additional access to exclusive member perks!

Once your 30-day trial is over, you'll pay only $9.99/month to continue your benefits. However, you can cancel at any time during your trial and you won't be charged.


Free Febreze Plug-In

Free Febreze Plug Warmer

For a limited time, you can grab a free Febreze Plug Warmer at Walgreens! These are on sale for $3 and can be paired with the free $3/1 coupon, which can be applied to both in-store or online purchases.

I'm not sure when this expires, but I doubt it'll last longer than a week.


Free Cryptocurrency Money

Free $100+ worth of Cryptocurrency & Money

Latest Freebie โ€“ $3 in CHZ

This free cryptocoin offer was upgraded in September 2021 and brings the total freebies given away to over $100 USD that we can cashout!

Coinbase, one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges for Americans, has offered over $100 worth of free money via different cryptocoins. Once acquiring your free crypto, you can then hold on and hope it goes up in value, like you would with stocks from Robinhood or Webull.

Or, you can convert it to USD and cash out today!

The first thing you'll want to do is make a free Coinbase account. Don't worry about the Bitcoin message on that screen. We're not buying anything – just freebies for us, please and thank you!

I believe most of these offers for free money are still available! ๐Ÿ‘‡

Get $100+ in free cryptocurrency!

Now, onto the free cryptocurrency quizzes. Don't worry, I've got all the answers below ๐Ÿ˜‰

There will be a video for each question that you only need to watch a few seconds of them. You'll then be able to enter your answer and earn free cryptocurrency with each correct answer. All told, it only takes a few minutes to earn all your free money.

Finally, if you find you're getting an “Earning Unavailable: Unfortunately this opportunity is not available in your region” message for any of the coins, you can use a VPN to get around it! ๐Ÿ™‚ I personally use Private Internet Access or PureVPN, but any VPN should work.

If you're looking for a free VPN, my go-to here is ProtonVPN. Aside from their great security – I'm never going to recommend a VPN with bad security, that's a given! – I find their speeds to be quick and their IP addresses are almost never blocked by large websites.
