One important tip I've found is to make note of the referral code when joining (highlighted in this photo here). It will make claiming your free stock much easier in case anything goes wrong.
I'm not a huge stock trader. I'm more of a sock trader, in that I'm always unwittingly trading left socks with the person using the washing machines after me at the laundromat.
When I first started investing, I found the online brokerage fees of $7 per trade to be a bit steep. That's why I joined Robinhood a few years ago and never looked back. They're an app-based brokerage account regulated just like all the big Wall Street companies. What sets Robinhood apart are their no-fee trades, which means you never pay a commission when you buy and sell stocks. The only drawback is they don't have great research options, but I always got around that by using all the free research tools on other websites. Then I go back to Robinhood and make my free trades there 🙂
While that's all well and good, Robinhood is running a promo giving away free share of stock to anybody who joins! For no money whatsoever, you can get a free share of a surprise stock. While it's completely random what you get, you have a 1 in 150 chance of getting a share of Facebook ($178.92), Apple ($172.50), Microsoft ($84.14) and a 1 in 100 chance of getting a share of Ford ($12.36), AMD ($11.12), or Vereit ($7.92) – all for free! The lowest stock you can get for free is priced at $2.50, so there are no garbage or penny stocks being offered here.
How to Get a Free Share of Stock
Fun Fact: The stock above was $4.20 when I got it! It's now worth $0.74! I should have sold it long ago! This wasn't a very fun fact!
To get your free share of stock, simply sign up via their app and wait for your account to be approved. You have to be referred by somebody in order to get your free share, so it's important you go through a link here on HIF. You can only have 1 account per person, so they confirm your identity with your social security number (similar to how tobacco freebies do!) using bank-level SSL and 128-bit encryption.
After your account is approved, open the app and click on the “Free Stock” link in the menu. You should then have a share of stock to claim! You then have to wait 2 business days before you can sell the stock and then wait another 30 days before you can transfer the money out of the app and into your bank account.
With the number of readers HIF has, I'd be shocked if a few Hiffers didn't get a share of those mega expensive stocks! In fact, I'd love for Hiffers to share what they got in the comments just so we could see how much free money was given out.
Fingers crossed you're one of the lucky Hiffers to hit it big with a share of Facebook or Apple. Good luck!87

As usual, I've put together a 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.
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!58
For the second year in a row, CBS is letting new users watch all of our favorite CBS shows for free by offered a free month of CBS All Access if you join before 12/2. With All Access, you can stream NCAA football and NFL football on Saturday and Sunday, as well hit shows, movies, additional live sports and news — anytime, anywhere. Just use code THANKS.
CBS typically only offers a single week for free to new customers, so a free month gives you plenty of time to binge watch your favorite CBS shows! Stream your all-time favorites, like NCIS, Big Brother, Young Sheldon, and Madam Secretary, either live or on-demand 24/7 with over 10,000 episodes in their archives. Plus you have access to Star Trek: Discovery (which is surprisingly good in certain parts!) and other streaming-only shows.
When you join, use code THANKS before December 2, and you'll get a free month of CBS All Access. If for any reason you don't want to keep your subscription after the first month, simply cancel it from the My Account page and you won't be charged after 30 days.

Previous Freebie – October 2018
This freebie only lasted two days last time around!
Here's a new signup form that offers some free La Roche-Posay sunscreen. This Anthelios Clear Skin oil-free SPF 60 sunscreen is intended for your face, which is super convenient because that's where the sun shines a lot.
They also claim to “help absorb excess oil and reduce shine,” which totally sounds fake. It also has a “powerful antioxidant complex to help protect skin from free radicals caused by UV rays.”
I could have used this earlier in June when I was in Europe. Let's just say it's real easy to lose track of time drinking and relaxing while in Portugal 😅 My beard was the only thing that kept my full head from turning bright red by the end of my trip! Luckily, I managed to escape just before the giant heat wave hit.4
Every year I tell my brothers these free Emergen-C vitamin drink “supplements” are bull. Yet they always end up in our supply bag whenever we go camping and every morning I end up drinking one.
They taste ridiculous, I swear to everyone within earshot they don't work, and yet I drink one every single morning. It's like a ritual at this point.
For the record, I almost went with a “but what if it's an emergency and I need my Emergen-C now!” joke, but then realized that was horrible. Don't worry, I punched myself in the arms as punishment. They should have stopped me from even typing it!
For this 2019 version, we get a sample of their new Emergen-C Protein Fuel & Superfoods.26
