Free Kindle eBooks

Here's today's list of free Kindle eBooks. Many of these are available to everybody!

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!

Free State Road Maps

Free State Maps & Travel Guides

Below you'll find a full list of free state maps available from most state tourism departments. As a backup, I've also linked to any state Department of Transportation that give away free maps, both online or physically mailed to your house.

Almost every state offers a full map in their visitor's guide. For the DOT links, virtually all of them offer multiple free, highly detailed online .pdfs of their highways, roads, and other travel methods.

On top of that, many DOTS (I'd guesstimate 40ish) also have some sort of “click here to order a physical map” link. If you're looking for a highway map you can stash in your car's glovebox, this is the link you want to look for on your state's DOT site. You might have to click “highway map” or “road map” before the order form will appear. You might even want to click “Maps” in the menu bar and do a fresh search, because like I said, it's an option for most states!

If you manage to find a dot map or order form that I missed, please let me know. Here's to never getting lost again!

Free Alabama State Map – This is the first .travel website I've ever seen. Cool story, huh? (al dot map)

Free Alaska State Map – Here's the first case of “so, does this come with a map?” (ak dot map)

Free Arizona State Map – Their site promotes “Old West activities.” The heck is that? Like riding around on a horse and shooting pistols in the air? If so, then Arizona here I come! (az dot map)

Free Arkansas State Map – They have a plethora of travel brochures and even a Living in Arkansas guide for those considering moving there. Wait, where are you going? (ar dot map)




Free California State Map – It's no wonder they offer a free map given how many freaking tourism commercial they run! (ca dot map)

Free Colorado State Map – Their site tagline is “come to life.” Sounds like they're reanimating the dead out there. (co dot map)

Free Connecticut State Map – They don't update their site too often, but at least they finally offer a free map with their tourism guide. (ct dot map)

Free Delaware State Map – The only thing I know about Delaware is that President Biden is from there and it's the only state that sometimes loses commercial air travel.

During four periods since 1990, Delaware has been the only U.S. state without any scheduled airline flights: from 1993 through 1998, again from 2000 to 2006, from April 2008 until June 30, 2013, and between April 2015 and February 2021.

No wonder people are looking for highway maps here! (de dot map)

Free Florida State Map – When I first made this list in 2009, there was an “Authentic Florida Expert” everywhere on the site. She looked like a stereotypical grandma, but now she's nowhere to be seen. Uh oh, you know what that means… (fl dot map)

Free Georgia State Map – If I know Georgia, they'll also send you a peach. (ga dot map)

Free Hawaii State Map – Screw the map, their site has some cool pictures of volcanoes and lava! (hi dot map)

Free Idaho State Map – Not only do they have free maps, but Idaho even offers a free children's brochure. It's just a single page that says “hope you like potatoes,” but at least it's something. (id dot map)

Free Illinois State Map – Every time I visit Illinois, I lean into their state name and always drop the S at the end of words. It drives my friends bananas. (il dot map)

Free Indiana State Map – Indiana earns the distinction of being the first state site I've seen with a prominently displayed “free things to do here!” section. I guess that's what it takes to get people to come to anywhere in Indiana outside of Pawnee. (in dot map)

Free Iowa State Map – Just the place to go if you're really excited Presidential elections a full year ahead of time. (ia dot map)

Free Kansas State Map – Quick, can you name three cities in Kansas?! Neither could I. (ks dot map)

Free Kentucky State Map – Their state logo is by far the best I've seen yet. (ky dot map)

Free Louisiana State Map – I have nothing bad to say about Louisiana because New Orleans lets you walk around with alcohol TO GO. (la dot map)

Free Maine State Map – While signing up they want you to “be sure to indicate which regions of Maine and activities interest you.” Uhhh, does eating lobster and telling people I've been to Maine count as interests? (me dot map)

Free Maryland State Map – I can't tell you the number of times the state of Maryland has screwed me over, so visit with caution. I hated Baltimore years before The Wire ever aired. (md dot map)

Free Massachusetts State Map – I've still yet to ever correctly spell this state's name. It's the only item on my Bucket List I doubt I'll ever accomplish. (ma dot map)

Free Michigan State Map – Michigan's page has a section called “Air Zoo.” We can finally see when pigs fly! (mi dot map)

Free Minnesota State Map – Minnesota has over 11,000 lakes. I want maps for each and every one of them. (mn dot map)

Free Mississippi State Map – I always forget how to spell this state. What comes after the M again? (ms dot maps)

Free Missouri State Map – Their site advertises that internships are available. For the whole state? (mo dot maps)

Free Montana State Map – They offer a free winter guide in addition to the state map, but I can give you said guide right here. Step 1: stay inside. Step 2: go outside once spring arrives. (mt dot map)

Free Nebraska State Map – Nebraska wants us to “share the road trip.” See, even their own tourism board thinks the best part of Nebraska is driving away from it! (ne dot map)

Free Nevada State Map – Fill out the form you'll get a free state maps for the price of none! (nv dot map)

Free New Hampshire State Map – Their phone number is 800-FUN-IN-NH. I wonder how many people call it looking for 800-DUNG-ON-I. (nh dot map)

Free New Jersey State Map – “It's never too early to begin planning your next New Jersey getaway vacation!” Really? Fine, I want to book a room for August 10-12, 2081. (nj dot map)

Free New Mexico State Map – NM should capitalize on Breaking Bad and change their slogan to “Come for the meth. Stay for nature.” (nm dot map)

Free New York State Map – I always thought the “I Heart NY” campaign was for the city, not the state. Shows what I know. (ny dot map)

Free North Carolina State Map – They offer a free winery and Civil War travel guide. It's as if they were targeting me alone. (nc dot map)

Free North Dakota State Map – I heard North Dakota exists, guess it's not a myth! (nd dot map)

Free Ohio State Map – Their website used to be called DiscoverOhio.com. But then Ohio 2 was discovered and they've been awfully quiet ever since. (oh dot map)

Free Oklahoma State Map – I'm kind of interested in their additional “Agritourism Map.” Is this a tourist industry that Oklahoma made up? (ok dot map)

Free Oregon State Map – I love that they also offer an official kid's guide to Oregon. Like it's that complicated. “Hey kids! Are your parents coming here? Then so are you! Now shut it.” (or dot map)

Free Pennsylvania State Map – The last time I drove through PA, I paid around $12 trillion dollars in tolls. This is me right now thinking about my next road trip through the state. (pa dot map)

Free Rhode Island State Map – Their site says “put down that spreadsheet, tear yourself away from your inbox for a second, and fill out this form.” Uhhh … RUN, THEY'RE WATCHING US THROUGH OUR COMPUTERS!! (dot maps)

Free South Carolina State Map – Home state, represent! Don't be fooled by the domain name, it's legit. We're a sneaky bunch, just ask Major Robert Anderson. (sc dot map)

Free South Dakota State Map – Ok, wait a minute here. South Carolina's slogan: Smiling Faces, Beautiful Places. South Dakota's slogan: Great Faces, Great Places. It's like South Dakota wasn't even trying! (sd dot map)

Free Tennessee State Map – I doubt their slogan of “we're playing your song” is accurate. I didn't hear any polka music being played. (tn dot map)

Free Texas State Map – Their travel guide is 272 freaking pages long! That's not a guide, it's a book. (tx dot map page)

Free Utah State Map – I'm extremely disappointed Utah removed the separate checkbox for German visitors, as it completely ruined my Utah being a vacation mecca for Germans joke. Their DOT only has a high-res map to view, but you can still get a highway map from the first link. (ut dot map)

Free Vermont State Map – I'm not sure how all the seasonal maps differ from each other, but it's nice knowing that I have so many options with them. (vt dot map)

Free Virginia State Map – I once living in Virginia. It was as exciting as this story. (va dot map)

Free Washington D.C. Map – Our nation's capital isn't quite a state (even though it should be!), but you can get a free map via their visitor's guide. (dc dot map)

Free Washington State Map – As a Mariners fan and frequent traveler to the Pacific Northwest, I must say I absolutely love this section of the world. (wa dot map)

Free West Virginia State Map – I image WV looking like a scene from Justified but with more coal and moonshine. (wv dot map)

Free Wisconsin State Map – I spent some time in Wisconsin once. Believe the hype. They've got some good cheese. (wi dot map)

Free Wyoming State Map I updated their slogan to “Wyoming: Forever west. Until continental drift takes care of that.” (wy dot map)

Free National Park Maps – This website has over 1,600 high-res scans of national parks! You can search by state or alphabetically, as well as download many of them.

That took a lot longer than I thought it would. I need a vacation.


Free National Parks Admission

Free 2022 National Parks Admission Dates – Next is August 4!

The next free National Parks admission day is right around the corner. These 5 annual freebie go great with our free highway maps list!

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.

2022 Free National Park Admission Dates

I've written about these free National Park Admission days since they debuted in 2009 and the numbers are finally in. Hiffers love them! Maybe you could even end up like Mikah Meyer and visit all 419 National Parks! It only took him 3 years. ๐Ÿ˜‚

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.


File Taxes for Free

File Your 2021 Taxes for Free

Is it seriously tax time again? Already?! You've got to be kidding me. I swear, it's every freaking year, like clockwork.

Before I get to any freebies, let's get one thing out of the way. If you assume I'm going to take this opportunity to rewatch my favorite Simpsons tax day clip, then you know me too well!

If you're looking to get your IRS tax return in faster than Homer or before another huge backlog piles up, then I've got some free and discounted options below!

Who can file their taxes for free?

According to the IRS, anybody who made less than $73,000 a year can file their taxes for free online. This means roughly 70% of Americans are eligible to file for free!

The IRS has put together a collection of 8 Free File IRS partners that each specialize in certain states and AGI. Here's the full list of 2022 providers with direct links to their IRS Free File Program pages and I've listed any free state filings they offer.

H&R Block Free – Another free federal and state tax option is H&R Block. On top of being free, they're heavily promoting the difference between them and TurboTax.

H&R Block TurboTax 2021 Free Tax Difference

H&R Block is offering 45 forms required for filing your free online taxes, which is twice as many as TurboTax. They specifically mention these situations to look out for.

  • For Families – Child and Dependent Care Expenses
  • For Students – Student Loan Interest Deduction
  • For Students – Tuition and Fees Statement
  • For Uninsured – Health Coverage Exemptions

Obviously, if any of these situations apply to you, H&R Block sounds like the way to go! Here's a full list of supported forms on their “free online” plan.

If you find you need to upgrade to a different plan, you can get up to 20% off.


TaxAct – Another provider offering $0 federal and state tax filings is TaxAct. Their free plan is for people with basic 1040 or W2 income.

A new feature for 2021 is their free service now also includes dependents, retirement income, college expenses, and plenty more scenarios.

If you need to upgrade to their paid plans, I have a 20% off promo link to help save even more money.


Credit Karma Tax – Credit Karma Tax is a premium product that's 100% free, from start to finish. That includes all of our super-useful features, plus free filing for all supported forms and situations. Have a side-hustle? Own a home or sold some stock? Other tax services might charge you to itemize these deductions – but we don't.

From what I can tell, they don't even have a premium plan, so there's really no coupons or promo codes needed.

I will note that I've seen some negative reporting on this company. Long story short, they use your tax returns to target you with financial advertising…


TaxSlayer – The final, highly rated service on our list offering both state and federal tax returns for free is TaxSlayer. Like the others, this is primarily aimed at single, married, and student filers with a basic 1040.

Their paid services start at $17, but SLAYIT35 should save 35% off any of their plans!


FreeTaxUSA – We also have FreeTaxUSA, who my friend swears by. One of their nice perks is that they offer all of their federal plans, both Free and Deluxe, absolutely free. So if you have a slightly more complicated federal return, you can still get it completely free with FreeTaxUSA.

The downside is they don't offer any free state tax returns. However, I looked around, and believe you can save 10% with either code FREETAXUSA10 or COUPONS10.


TurboTax Free EditionAs of 2022, I can no longer recommend TurboTax Free as a good filing option. Pro Publica recently published a scathing expose detailing all the complex ways Turbo Tax tries upselling you to pointless services you don't need.

TurboTax still offers both free federal and state tax returns if you qualify and only need basic forms, like a 1040. But overall, I'd personally prefer to go with a different company.

Free Military Tax Options

Those in the military have an extra option with MilTax. It's a free service by the Department of Defense that uses a version of H&R Block's software. It's available to all active-duty service members, anybody in the National Guard or the reserves, and to their families. Their free program has no income or tax form restrictions as well!

One nice perk is they have both a free toll number (800-342-9647) and a live chat if you have any tax questions!

Where can you get free personal tax help?

If you need help with filing your taxes, you may qualify for the free IRS' Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program if any of these conditions apply to you:

  • People who generally make $58,000 or less
  • Persons with disabilities
  • Limited English-speaking taxpayers

There is also a free IRS' Tax Counseling for the Elderly (TCE) program that can help you if you are at least 60 years old.

Both VITA and TCE sites are managed by IRS partners and staffed by their volunteers who want to make a difference in their communities. The IRS-certified volunteers who provide tax counseling are often retired individuals associated with non-profit organizations that receive grants from the IRS.

VITA and TCE sites are generally located at community and neighborhood centers, libraries, schools, shopping malls and other convenient locations across the country.

To locate the nearest VITA site near you, use the VITA Locator Tool or call 800-906-9887.

To locate the nearest TCE site near you, use the AARP Site Locator Tool or call 888-227-7669. These sites are typically only open between January and April.

Wrapping Up

So there you have it! With one of those sites, you should be able to file both of your taxes for free or extremely cheap.

Now hopefully we get a break from all these taxes next year! I hear it's a leap year, that's gotta help us somehow.


Get Free Stock Shares

Robinhood: Free Share of Stock, some $200+!

It's hard not to love this free stock program from Robinhood. Thankfully, this promotion is 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! 3,400+ Hiffers have now joined and gotten free stock worth over $5,000 $12,500(!) $16,500(!!) $20,000(!!!) since I first published this. Nine Hiffers received shares of Apple, worth $175, and eight more Hiffers received shares of Facebook, worth $328!

And don't forget Webull also gives out free stock shares to new customers!

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 gremlin in my washing machine.

When I first started investing, I found tradition brokerage fees of $7 per trade to be way too expensive. That's why I joined Robinhood many years ago and never looked back. It's an online brokerage with commission-free trading and no monthly fees designed for beginners. It's available from both a desktop computer or mobile app on your smartphone.

What sets Robinhood apart are their no-fee trades, which means you never pay a commission or transaction fees when you buy and sell stocks or cryptos. The concept of free stock trading was so popular, that now other trading apps have copied Robinhood!

It's also completely safe, as it's officially licensed & regulated by FINRA and are regulated by SIPC just like all the big Wall Street or financial companies, like Charles Schwab or Vanguard.

As luck would have it, 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 and the value of your stocks, but you have a 1-in-100 chance to get a value of at least $20 and 1-in-1000 get at least $50 in reward stock.

The minimum lowest stock you can get is a fractional share priced at $5, so you're guaranteed at least something! You can also convert your free stock into any other stock or into crypto like bitcoin or ethereum.

As of 2022, you have a chance at getting stock in the following portfolio of S&P 500 companies:

  • Apple (AAPL)
  • Microsoft (MSFT)
  • Amazon (AMZN)
  • Facebook (FB)
  • Alphabet Inc. Class A (GOOGL)
  • Tesla (TSLA)
  • NVidia Corp. (NVDA)
  • Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK.B)
  • Nike (NKE)
  • Disney (DIS)
  • Visa (V)
  • Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
  • Walmart (WMT)
  • Procter & Gamble (PG)
  • Comcast (CMCSA)
  • General Motors (GM)
  • Eli Lilly (LLY)
  • Honeywell International (HON)
  • Applied Materials (AMAT)

How to Get a Free Share of Stock

Free Johnson & Johnson stock

Hiffer Jenn recently got a free share of Johnson & Johnson worth over $138!

To get your free share of stock, simply join and wait for your account to be approved. This typically takes less than one business day. Remember, you must be a new Robinhood account holder who hasn't previously registered an account!

You must 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 work!) 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 & withdraw the money out of the app and into your bank account.

At this point, you can also earn additional free stock shares by sending your referral link to friends and family. As you invite friends to open free accounts, you'll get up to $500 more in free stock per calendar year.

As the numbers show at the top of this post, HIF has a lot of readers who've taken advantage of this great off. A ton of them earned shares 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.

Robinhood has complete full terms and overview of this promo on their site, which are very easy to read. They also contain some frequently asked questions about the rules, regulations, and referral program.

So there you have it! So if you've ever wondered if the free stock from Robinhood offer was legit, now you see it clearly is! Fingers crossed you're one of the lucky Hiffers to hit it big with a share of Facebook or Apple. Good luck!


Free Racing Hero Card

Free Racing Hero Cards

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!

Entries with NEW! were recently added.

Zachary Tinkle has to be my favorite name. But he's no Dick Trickle!

Know of any free hero cards that I missed? Please let me know in the comments!

Previously Offered Hero Cards

  • Carl Long Veedverks
  • Clint Bowyer
  • Chris Buescher
  • John Force
  • Matt Snider
  • Procore Racing Crew
  • Sheldon Creed
  • Tricky…the mascot? Or maybe there's a furry NASCAR driver out there?! ๐Ÿคฃ

Free Magazine Subscriptions

How to Get Hundreds of Free Magazine Subscriptions!

If you want to stop paying money on magazine subscriptions, then this page is for you! Just be careful – not only will you save money, but you might also get so many free magazines that you'll lose every inch of kitchen counter and table space ๐Ÿ˜€

Below is an auto-updated list of every current free magazine offer we've found, sorted with newest offers at the top.

The date shown after each title is when we most recently confirmed the availability.

Current Free Magazines

You can also browse our free magazine archive. This includes both active offers along with expired offers so you can get a feel for the types of freebies typically offered throughout the year.

How to Get Free Magazines

It's amazingly simple. All you need in order to get magazines for free is:

  • A mailing address

That's it!

You will never need a credit card number or any payment information. Do not fill out any form that asks for any type of payment for a free magazine!

The selection of titles and number of magazines will change each month. Most offers are for either a free one-year or two-year subscription.

Why do companies give away free magazines?

That has an easy answer – they want your contact information so they can resell it to marketers and advertisers!

Haha, there's just no way to sugarcoat it.

Many times a single brand will sponsor a free offer by purchasing a huge amount of subscriptions to give away, like 50,000. In exchange, they'll receive a copy of the survey results and contact information of everybody who gets the freebie.

So how do you get around this? I'm glad you asked – don't give real personal information!

Can I use fake info to get free subscriptions?

Absolutely! In fact, if anybody asks, my name is Mr. Snrub. No, seriously, I always sign up with the fake name Montgomery Snrub! ๐Ÿ˜Ž And it's fine – the USPS delivers my magazines each month addressed to Mr. Snrub!

On top of that, I always give fake answers about my age and occupation. There's no law saying you have to be honest on the Internet!

For emails, we always suggest using a free email address just for these type of freebie offers.

You just want to make sure to give your actual mailing address so they know where to deliver the magazine issues each month!

Are these magazines actually free?

๐Ÿ’ฏ Yes! I know it seems too good to be true, but these offers are legit for all the reasons I explained above.

Remember, you will NEVER need to provide a credit card or payment whatsoever. Not now, not tomorrow, not ever.

If you somehow reach a page asking for your payment information, even for just a single dollar, then you have mistakenly clicked on a wrong link somewhere and should exit the page immediately.

Will I ever get a bill?

NO! You will never get a bill for your free subscription.

Some magazines will send you a renewal request that looks like a bill, but if you look carefully there will always be fine print text that says “this is not a bill.”

Seriously, I've been running this website since 2005 and have received hundreds of free subscriptions over the years. Not once have I ever received a bill.

Can I get free magazines if I already have a paid subscription?

Absolutely! Free subscriptions actually stack on top of each other! So if you already pay for a magazine, you can “add” additional years to the end of your subscription for free.

Let's say you bought a one year subscription to People magazine and have three months remaining before it expires. If you signed up for a free subscription today, it would start the month after your paid subscription ends. You would then have your three remaining months plus the next 12 months for free, giving you a total of 15 additional months.

There's no limit on these either. Most magazines are offered for free multiple times each year, so you can keep stacking the subscriptions on top of each other and continue getting your favorite magazines for free!

Is there a limit to how many free magazines I can get?

Not that I've ever found! It would be impossible for me to literally count the number of magazines I've got since I started this site over 16 years ago. I've never once encountered any sort of limit!

What can I do with all these free magazines?

Aside from reading them yourself, you could send them to a friend or family member as a present.

You could also donate them to a local library, school, doctor's office, or business. It's always nice to have new reading material in a waiting room.

Do I have to send the magazines to my house?

Nope! You can send them to your office or wherever else you want. Literally any valid USPS mailing address will work.

This also means it's super easy to sign up a friend or family member for a free sub. It's like getting them a gift all year long that you don't have to pay for!

Where can I get digital magazines?

For digital magazines, check out Mercury Magazines and Valuemags listed below.

Companies That Offer Free Subscriptions

What are some websites where I can access free magazines and ebooks to read online?

You can get enough reading material to last for hours every week and still have plenty leftover to donate, use for art projects, or burn in the backyard for impromptu s'mores.

Mercury Magazines

Mercury Magazines are the irrefutable king of magazine freebies and it's not even close. They don't have a central list of available publications on their site, but instead they release roughly 10 to 20 new offers each month, one at a time. You never need a credit card or payment info whatsoever.

When requesting a freebie from MM, you'll always have to answer three simple occupation-related questions. Then, you'll submit your mailing address and that's it!

You can skip all of the subsequent “special offers” by clicking “No Thanks” at the bottom of the page. After you decline all the “bonuses”, you'll eventually reach a confirmation page for your free subscription. However, you don't actually have to load this confirmation page. I always exit out of the browser immediately after submitting my address!

If you don't want to answer the profession questions, then select these basic responses! 1-4 / Other Industries / Homemaker / Other Function / None / None

Mercury Magazine Job Answers

I've used those answers for years without any problems.

Here are some of the top available Mercury Magazines offer:

RewardSurvey

RewardSurvey updates their free title selection on a monthly rotation, like clockwork. In fact, we keep a running list of all monthly RewardSuvery freebies here! The beauty of RewardSurvey is they rotate some high-value magazines, like ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone, Time, and Wired.

One difference with RewardSurvey is they require you to spend “reward points” to redeem magazines. However, these are easily earned by taking short – and random! – quizzes. Seriously, my two most recent quizzes were on my choice of travel methods and my choice in peanut butter flavors.

These surveys only take about 3-5 minutes to complete and then you can immediately redeem the points for freebies.

Free Trade Publications, Books, & Magazines

One of the most long standing sections of HIF is our free trade publications area. You've probably never heard of most of these. I sure know I haven't. But since they're insanely specific to certain jobs or professionals, I'll sometimes run across computer or website magazines that I sign up for. Seriously, they have an insanely massive list of free magazines up for grabs.

Give the “topics” list a glance to see if there are any you might find useful!

Recyclebank

It couldn't be easier to earn RecycleBank points. You can rack up enough for a free magazine subscription in under 10 minutes! We have a detailed guide on all the free RecycleBank points methods here.

One of the best aspects of Recyclebank is that you can see what's being offered without signing up. Their rewards page for magazines has a whopping 41 free magazines right now!

Valuemags

Valuemags.com routinely offers free magazine subscriptions as well. They typically have 5-15 offers available, with new publications rotating in every month or two.

One nice perk with Valuemags is that they'll email you confirmation of your free magazine subscriptions!

If there are any current Valuemag offers, they'll be listed here:

RewardsGold – Closed

Started in 2005, RewardsGold and their sister site RewardsCountry were the premier sites to get free magazine subscriptions. However, in December 2018, both sites went offline for an overhaul. If and when either site returns, I'll post a full list here.

Now please don't sign up for all of these unless you want to give your mail carrier a hernia. ๐Ÿ™‚


Free RewardSurvey Magazine Subscriptions

Free RewardSurvey Magazine Subscriptions

All magazines listed below do not have a fee with them! I omitted any offers charging processing fees and only list 100% free subscriptions below!

Free magazine subscriptions in exchange for random surveys have been a staple in the freebie scene for as long as I can remember and it looks like 2021 won't be any different! RewardSurvey is one of the leading free magazine providers and thankfully it looks like they're getting better offers as 2021 goes on.

It's important to remember that offers are unique to each account! One of the main reasons I keep coming back to RewardSurvey is they tend to always offer me at least one new, rare, exclusive free magazine offer each month.

After signing up and completing a short survey (usually around 20 basic questions), you'll get $20 credited to your account that allows you to request most of the free magazines they offer. You can then log back in once a week, take the new survey, and add more free money to your account that can be redeemed for more free magazines or refer a few friends. All in all it takes me under 5 minutes (usually broken up during commercial breaks while watching TV) to get enough credit for the most expensive magazine offers.

October 2021 RewardSurvey Free Magazines

As usual, I'll continue listing free magazines I was offered. Depending on our profiles, we may have different magazines offered, so your mileage may vary.

Offers with a mean they are new this month. Also, some offers are hidden until you click the “see all offers” link in the bottom right of the page!

Free Meal Delivery Promo Codes

Order a Meal with Discounted Food Delivery Codes!

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

Grubhub – New users get $7 off their first order of $12+ with promo code AFF7 as long as you use this link. They've been my go-to food delivery site for years.

New users on mobile can alternately save 25% off their first order of $15+ with code AFF25. This promo code only works in their mobile app with this link.

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 $30 in credit ($10 off each of your first three orders of $15+), though 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.

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.

Bring Me That – Use code bda3f3 to save $5 off your first meal.

EatStreet – They have a website, but they only offer $5 off your first order via the app only. After downloading it to your phone, 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.

thumbs-up

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.

Fresh Direct – New users get $25 off $99 with code GET25.

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.
