Did you know we can get free racing Hero Cards from a bunch of NASCAR drivers? At least I think they're racers. At least half of these names sound made up, but I'm told they're actual drivers!
Racing hero cards are unique sports collectibles . They're custom-printed cards designed to promote a race team, primary drivers, and their sponsors. They're also bigger than a baseball card, as NASCAR hero cards typically come in either 6 x 8 or 8 x 10 sizes.
Many of the free hero cards I found below come either from the racing team themselves or one of their sponsors. If you're into racing or collecting cool new memorabilia, check out all the freebies below to get started!
We currently provide Hero Cards for Erik Jones at no cost to fans. We allow one Hero Card per person. To request a Hero Card, please complete the Contact Us form and include which driver you prefer in the comment section. Cards typically arrive within two weeks of the request.
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.

Get STAR WARS Battlefront II and the complete collection of customization content acquirable through in-game purchase from launch up to – and including – items inspired by STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER.
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.
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!
So get out there, breathe in some fresh air, and report back to me how relaxing and peaceful it is. Just don't take your family! I went with mine last year and long story short, they left me behind. Unfortunately for them, I'm like one of those cool dogs from a Reader's Digest story and I walked all the way home in just under a week.
If you can't make it out to your local National Park, you can do the next best thing and read up on some parks! Sure, it's not the same as actually visiting, but it has significantly fewer mosquitoes and poison ivy patches.
It's hard not to love this freebie from Robinhood. It's thankfully still kicking in the new year, so be sure to pick up your free stock using the guide below.
Be sure not to miss out on this! 2,800-ish Hiffers have now joined and gotten free stock worth over $3,000$5,500(!) $12,500(!!) since I first published this. Seven Hiffers received shares of Apple, worth $175, and four more Hiffers received shares of Facebook, worth $179!
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 $2.04! I should have sold it long ago! On second though, this wasn't very fun… 😀
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.
Whoa! If you're new to Rakuten, you can get $40 deposited into your account simply by making at least $40 in purchases through their site within 90 days. You can make multiple purchases at multiple stores, you just have to spend at least $40 total within 90 days. You'll then get paid $40 either by check or PayPal.
You can choose from Best Buy, Target, Kohl's, Old Navy, Walmart, PetSmart, GameStop, Bus Stop? and literally hundreds and hundreds more. Pretty much every store except Amazon is available for cash-back on Rakuten. With the holidays coming up, I imagine it won't be too hard to hit the $40 threshold!
New PINCHme samples go live Tuesday, November 10, at 12pm EST.
Another round of PINCHme sample boxes will be stocked and released Tuesday, November 10, at 12 pm EST. As usual, they'll only be available on a first come, first serve basis, but it's also based on your customer profile as to what you're offered.
To have the best shot at getting as many freebies as possible, I always suggest new users go ahead and make an account today, before the freebies become available. That way, you can immediately log-in when they go live at noon on Tuesday.
Don't forget, items marked with are new this month!
PINCHme offers free products, with free shipping and no credit card requires, on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. All they ask for is your honest feedback on the products you receive. Every month, new freebies and samples are released on PINCHme.com for members to claim. Many items have been offered in beauty, snacks, baby, pet, personal care, cleaning products, and household categories over the past few years. There's something for everyone!
Note available samples are based on your demographics and how you answer their survey questions, so if you have a pet, then make sure you tell PINCHme so you'll get the pet food and toys offered. Regardless, both new and existing PINCHme members should have at least a few available freebies within the hour, so make sure to go request them all at noon before they run out!
During last year's freebie drought, I picked up two new habits.
Making nude, moonlight dances to the Freebies Gods.
Entering free, instant-win sweepstakes.
Only one has produced any positive results! But that didn't stop me from compiling a full list of instant win contests.
Since I originally started this, I've won 14 different contests for about $440~ in prizes! It's not a lot, but I only do it a few minutes each day, like while I'm watching TV or waiting for something to download. Over $400 in winnings isn't too bad with such a low investment.
With instant win contests, you can enter at least once a day, usually with nothing more than an email address. The trade off is that instead of winning a car or a house, you win a gift card or a prize pack.
However, I've had better results with these types of contests. If you think about it, companies never have trouble getting people to enter contests for mega prizes. Everybody and their cousin wants a free vacation, duh. But when companies offer multiple smaller prizes. every day, your odds go way up. Why?
There are way more total prizes.
There are less people entering.
So try your luck with these instant win contests and see if you can't pad your stocking a little this Christmas 😉
This freebie was first published in 2009, but is still available as of 2021!
That sound you just heard was the ol' Reliability Train rumbling through town, bringing with it your annual reminder to sign up for this classic freebie!. These two free Breathe Right nasal strips have been around for so long that I think we should induct them into the Freebie Hall of Fame.
Don't get too excited though, it's not as prestigious as it sounds. It's basically a space on my bookcase where I needed some color. It sits right between a broken clock and an old t-ball trophy. I was the only kid not to punch a teammate that year!
I was actually on a team the last time I wore one of these free Breath Right nasal strips. It was back in high school on the football field. You should have seen me, I was a beast! Tirelessly running up and down the field and always hanging around with the tough guys was a recipe for instant popularity. It seemed like everybody knew and was talking about me, which always made me feel great. And the girls! Oh, the girls. They were always pointing at me and laughing – no doubt thinking of a hilarious joke I'd recently told in class.
I probably didn't need to wear full football gear to be the water boy, but people were always throwing good luck charms at me, like empty beer bottles. Sure, they hurt whenever they hit my head, but the more they threw, the faster I ran, and the more hydrated our team was! What great fans, huh?!
I never learn what happens if you wear ten Breathe Right's at once? Does that give you ten times the amount of oxygen you'd normally get? Don't worry, I plan on testing this out in the interest of science / filling a lazy Thursday afternoon.
When I moved to New York City, I was blown away. It had great comedy and public transportation and yada yada BUT THE FOOD! I instantly fell in love when I discovered how many different cuisines I could sample every meal. I was flabbergasted how easy it was to order a BLT at midnight followed by Thai noodles at 3am if I was still hungry.
Soon after I moved here, the ads in the subway became blanketed with food delivery apps and websites. Combining an app with ordering food was a match made in heaven. You're no longer put on hold while ordering and your order is rarely incorrect! Being able to go from your phone to food at your door in minutes was like an evolution in tech to me.
While most of these sites started in limited cities, most of these apps expanded nationwide in recent years! That's why I put together this list of discounted food delivery for as many Hiffers as possible.
If you have a takeout or delivery place near by, then your town might be on one of these sites! The best way to find out is to enter your zip code or address on their homepage. Many of the websites have a list of cities & areas they serve at the bottom of their main page too.
These sites also famously only give discounts on your first orders to new customers. However, they confirm your identity via your credit card. Soooo, if you have multiple credit cards and make a few different email accounts … well … 😉
If any of the discounted food delivery codes below don't work for you, please let me know in the comments so I can find a new code!
Discounted Meal Delivery Codes
Delivery.com – Save $10 off your first order of $15+ by using this link. One of Delivery.com's best perks is being the only food delivery service that also lets you earn rewards! You earn 20 points per $1 spent, which are redeemed for gift cards or free food. Of all the sites listed here, I find they send out the most “random” discount codes via email too. Once every 10 days or so I get a limited 10-15% promo code, which is great compared to how infrequently other sites offer these.
DoorDash – Get $5 off your first three orders of $15+, through select cities get $10 to $15 in free credit! Unfortunately, I can't tell which cities get how much credit, so you'll have to see for yourself what DoorDash offers in your neighborhood.
GrubHub – $7 off your first order of $15+ with no promo code needed as long as you use this link. It's been my go-to food delivery site for years.
Seamless – You'll save 7 on your first-time order over $15. I'm beginning to see a pattern here.
Postmates -You'll want to download the app then enter code 6x9h. This will give you free delivery credit (up to $10) on your first order.
UberEats – Again, after downloading their app, enter code eats-uberhif to save $5 off your first order plus get $100 in delivery fees waived.
EatStreet – They have a website, but they only offer $5 off your first order via the app only. After downloading it on iOS or Android, enter code UICXW1 at checkout.
Caviar – Caviar was recently purchased by DoorDash, so they are slowly integrating their platforms together.
Eat24 – Eat24 is no more! They were recently acquired and rolled into Grubhub, which…let's be honest, was the best choice here. Yelp was terrible as the owner and operator of Eat24 IMHO.
Amazon Restaurants – Yet another recent dropout to the meal delivery services is Amazon! I was surprised to see them give up so soon, but their Restaurants program never did seem to get past the trial stage. It seems they've pivoted to Amazon Fresh grocery delivery, which makes more sense given their acquisition of Whole Foods.
With these codes sites and promo codes, you can be eating for cheap in no time! But what about when you want to order ingredients for your next meal on the cheap?
Discounted Groceries Delivery Codes
Amazon Fresh – I've personally used Amazon Fresh for over a year now for most of my groceries and they never disappoint. They always have a weekly-changing, full-sized item that's on sale for $0.25, so it's kinda like a freebie!
For a limited time, new Amazon Fresh Members can save $10 off Grocery Orders of $35 or more with promo code GROCERY10 at checkout.
Instacart – New users get anywhere from $5 to $20 off their first order for free, plus the delivery fee is waived on your first order.
Peapod – You can get same-day, instant grocery delivery service via Peapod if you live in the following areas: Chicagoland, Milwaukee, S.E. Wisconsin, Indianapolis, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Southern New Hampshire, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, S.E. Pennsylvania.
New customers get $20 off your first order, plus free delivery for 60 days.
Discounted Alcohol Delivery Codes
Drizly – They don't sell food, but this new company delivers something equally important for some people – alcohol! Code DRIZLYDEAL, SORRYWELATE, SORRY5, and RESTOCK should all save $5 off your first order and your alcohol will be delivered to your door within 1 hour! I don't know about you, but there have been a million times I've wanted booze in my hand within an hour!
So there ya have it! If you're a human who eats food and enjoys occasionally letting somebody else cook for you, use some of these sites to score some discounted meals.
Countless studies have shown that condoms are highly effective at reducing the risk of transmitting and contracting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). The CDC agrees and also reminds us that condoms also decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy, especially among younger adults.
Recent research reported that CDPs as structural interventions:
Increased condom use, condom acquisition, and condom carrying.
Promoted delayed sexual initiation or abstinence among youth.
Provided cost-effective and cost-saving outcomes on future medical care costs by preventing HIV infections.
Significantly affected condom use behaviors and helped reduce HIV/STD risk among a wide range of at-risk groups (i.e., youth, adults, commercial sex workers, high STD populations, and males).
However, some people find it difficult to secure free condoms, either because of their remote location, embarrassment, or uncertainty in where to get them.
So how can we stay sexually safe without spending lots of money? It turns out, many state governments are already trying to help out! Studies show that investment in local family planning can easily saved over $7 for every single dollar spent. Condoms are also extremely cost-effective, cheap to transport, and easy to both store and give away.
Thus, it shouldn't come as any surprise to learn that many states fund free condom programs! They're broken down into two main categories – free condoms in-person and free condoms mailed to your house. All of the mailed offers linked below include free shipping and promise to send your freebies in nondescript packaging.
Free Condoms for Everyone in Person
In most states (about 40-45), local health clinics give away free male barrier condoms to teens and anybody who makes around 150% of the poverty level. On top of that, about 35 to 40 states also send out hundreds of thousands of free condoms to participating agencies to give away to residents. You can't sign up for them individually, but they're provided free of charge at local community health centers and businesses.
And by “businesses,” I mean nondescript type places like bars and restaurants! Not all of the free condoms require walking into a clinic or health center.
In the early 2010s, a site called Condom Finder gained a lot of well-earned attention. Their mission was to give away one million free condoms each year by creating a database of all the local free condoms locations nationwide. It was a great resource for its time, but unfortunately I do not think it is up to date as of 2020. Luckily, I found better alternatives!
Your first stop for local free condom resources should be the federal Health and Human Services male condom page. Halfway down, there's a “Find a family planning clinic” search box. This was the best search box I found that tapped into local option. It's not the only place you should search, but I think it has much better information than Condom Finder.
If you're a young woman between the ages of 18-29, I'd then make a quick stop at Bedsider and enter your zip code for “get birth control delivered.” Some states own HHS websites, like Illinois and Massachusetts, specifically say to check it.
The next guaranteed resource for free condoms is Planned Parenthood. They have a well-documented information page on condoms, along with a location finder. They have clinics across the country that offer free condoms to those who need them.
The final resource is Google! Allow me to explain all the ways how.
Free Condoms for Students
Almost every single university offers free condoms to their college students. It'd be impossible for me to list them all, but you can easily find your school's free condom locations by Googling “free condoms UNIVERSITY NAME”. Then substitute your school's name for “UNIVERSITY HERE” and viola!
You can do this for almost any college, university, or school and find ample free condoms. Even small, remote colleges in America typically offer a free condom program and have full details on their website.
Free Condoms by Mail
Beyond all 50 states, there are free condom programs in many cities and even local counties. I've included a few city examples below, along with links to each state's official program! I also highly suggest searching Google for “free condom” and your location. I've included an example link for each state below, but you should also search for your nearest large city and county no matter where you live. You'd be surprised how many locations offer free contraceptives!
Here are just a few examples of cities. I can't stress enough that you should search for your nearest major city, some of their mailing windows are quite large.
Since the dawn of HIF, major sports teams and their affiliates have offered free kids clubs. These offers are continually changing, but this week I compiled all of them into the post below! I'll continue updating this post going forward as new kids kits are released or updated.
So what do you get with a free kids club? Well, that depends on the team! The most common freebie are fan badges, lanyards, and draw string backpacks. However, some teams offer free tickets to games! How cool is that?!
Paid kids clubs are sadly more plentiful. While some are insanely expensive, I noticed quite a few in the $20-$30 range that came with nice swag and multiple tickets to games. Depending on your family plans to attend game, some of these look to be decent offers where you can save some money with the little ones.
Finally, I've included all the dud teams as well, who offer no free or paid kids club. I've also included instructions on where to look for possible new clubs, since these change with each sports new season!
As always, please share in the comments if you find any new or altered sports kids clubs!
Free Baseball Kids Clubs ⚾
Professional MLB teams are tied for the most free kids clubs (9) out of 30 teams. That's 30% of teams offering offering freebies! They also lead the way in paid kids clubs at 18, leaving only 3 professional baseball teams offering no kids club whatsoever.
Fans ages 15 and younger are eligible for this free club. In addition to a membership card, you win prizes for each game you attend. Kids also received one free Sunday ticket at Chase Field during 2019! While the free tickets didn't happen in 2020 since there were no fans at the stadium, it's safe to guess they'll return in 2021.
This free club is for Braves fans ages 14 and under. They get a free Braves passport and lanyard, opportunity to earn prizes for attending Braves home games, and ongoing invitations to exclusive, Kids Club only events. There's also a paid, upgraded club available with more perks.
I first wrote about the free White Sox kids club back in 2009 and I love to see they're still going strong! This year, kids get a free personalized ID badge. These give to access a new prize each month at the Kids Club Prize Redemption Kiosk.
The Bucaroos Kids Club is exclusively for Pirates fans 14 & younger. Along with the paid upgrade option, the free club gets you a free Chick-fil-A sandwich or nuggets and a free Pirates ticket voucher! This is the first kids club I've come across that offers free food!
The Compadres Kids is for kids 14 and younger. You earn prizes for attending games, but the site also mentions earning points to redeem for rewards and experiences. Compadres Kids also get access to events like Kids Sunday Signings, Kids Run the Bases and Catch on the Field.
The Jr. Nats Rookie Membership is available for all fans ages 4-12. It comes with a membership card and lanyard, plus meet and greet opportunities. There's also a paid, upgraded club available with more perks.
While their kids club is paid-only, the Orioles have brought back Kids Cheer Free. This popular program allows fans aged nine and younger to attend games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards free of charge. For each regularly-priced individual game Upper Deck ticket purchased, adults can add up to two additional free Upper Deck tickets.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find any sort of kids club at all for these final teams. Maybe we should tweet at them and ask why?! If you get a response, be sure to tweet at @heyitsfree and let us know!
They say basketball is the most global American sport. Well, the NBA is doing a good job of exporting freebies! Professional basketball teams have overtaken their baseball counterparts for the most free kids clubs, offering 13 free clubs, up from 9 last year. However, they only have 4 paid clubs, leaving a whopping 13, or 43%, of teams with no kids clubs at all!
Now, for the bad news. The NBA season is currently suspended because of the pandemic! As such, many of the following free kids clubs might be closed for registration. However, they offered a free program for 2019-2020 and in most cases are still taking applications.
The NFL must have gotten the message! While last year they only had 4 free clubs in the league, it's now up to 8 free kids clubs out of 32 teams! That means 25% of the league offers a free kids fan club.
Another 8 (25%) look to have paid clubs for 2020. That leaves 14 (44%!) of teams with no kids club to speak of. Smart business?
Choose Your Adventure: You have a multi-billion dollar industry rife with long-term safety issues. Do you A: invest in both safety and the next generation of fans by offering kids clubs or B: Ignore kids altogether. If you're the following teams, you picked B!
Uh oh, hockey. Professional hockey teams barely eked out victory over football last year, but have fallen to last place this year. They remain at 5 teams out of 31 (16%) providing free kids clubs for their young fans. That's the lowest percentage of all the major US sports.
Of the remaining clubs, 11 (35%) are paid and 14 (45%) have zilch.
Hockey has a very similar schedule to basketball. Like the NBA, the NHL is also entering their playoffs at time of publication. We should have more info on the 2019-2020 kids clubs later this year.
Don't ask how I found all these free minor league baseball kids clubs! When I started looking, my expectations were rather low. I was pleasantly to find seven great free clubs! If you live near any of these towns, be sure to check them out.
Another idea is to search for your favorite college sports teams kids clubs! There are thousands of colleges across the country and some of them are bound to have some awesome free programs! If you find any, please don't be shy and share in the comments!
If you know of any free clubs, kits, or caboodles I missed, please share!
