Free Bass Pro Shop Halloween Events

Free Bass Pro Shop & Cabela’s Halloween Events

Continuing their annual tradition, you can join Bass Pro Shop's Halloween events and get all sorts of freebies. Their costume parade will be Saturday, October 29 and Sunday October 30 at 3pm. They will also hold trick-or-treating throughout the weekend.

There will also be a free Cabela's Halloween Event on Saturday, October 29 and Sunday October 30 at 3pm.

In previous years, they gave away the following items. However I can't tell if they're doing all of these in 2022.

  • FREE Photo
  • FREE Crafts
  • Pumpkin Toss
  • Trick-or-Treating
  • Costume Parade with prizes
  • Cookie Decorating

Free Cordless Window Shade

Free Norman Cordless Window Shade

Norman is offering an amazing high-value freebie by giving away a free cordless window shade to any household with a child 8 years old or younger!

They'll let you pick the width and height, which seems to imply they're sending an actual full-sized product instead of just a sample, right? Or am I missing something entirely here?*

Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) recommends that only cordless window coverings or window coverings with inaccessible cords be used in homes with young children. Parents and parents-to-be have a million things on their minds when it comes to raising their children. But every parent needs to be aware of child safety, and this begins in the home.

They only have a select amount of freebies to give away each day, but they always restock their supply after midnight. A lot of other freebie sites posted this offer last week and it kept expiring quickly, so I held off on posting it for a little while so as many Hiffers as possible could get a freebie.

*spoiler alert – my brain has not been working properly since Juls' death, so I readily admit I might be missing something here.


Free Huggies Potty Training Kit

Free Huggies Potty Training Kit

Each kit comes with the following items:

  1. Pull-Up Pants
  2. Cooper's Big Kit Books
  3. Cottonelle Wipes
  4. Potty Training Reward Chard and Sticker Sheet

Free Sesame Street Fire Safety Coloring Book

Free Sesame Street Fire Safety Coloring Booklet

FEMA and The US Fire Administrationn are still giving out free Sesame Street fire safety coloring booklet. This educational freebie comes with the whole Sesame Street gang, including Elmo and apparently Ernie's big brother?

This fire safety coloring and activities booklet is intended for children ages 3-5. Grownups ages 18-99 can still color it and learn fire safety tips too!

You have two options to receive this freebie:

  1. Download and print out the coloring book at home.
  2. Add the coloring book to your shopping cart, create a free account, then checkout.

If you opt for the snail mail option, shipping should be 100% free!

Free LEGO® Red Brick

Free LEGO® Red Brick

If you have a local store, then swing by on one of the dates listed below and get a free 66-piece LEGO® Red Brick to take home. This is a celebratory giveaway for their 90 years of existence and the Red Brick model cannot be purchased, so fingers crossed this becomes a collector's item down the road.

A limited quantity will be available on a first come, first served basis each day.

  • Wednesday, August 10
  • Thursday, August 11

Don't forget you can also get a free LEGO Life magazine subscription!


Free Backpack Filled with School Supplies via Verizon

Free Backpack Filled with School Supplies on July 31

This great annual freebie is back for Hiffers in 26 states! Participating Verizon Wireless locations are giving away free backpacks filled with essential school supplies on Sunday, July 31, from 1-4pm! A full list of 1,244 locations and addresses are available on their Wireless Zone Locations page.

Each backpack comes with pencils, a pencil box, folders, paper, a ruler, and glue. Your child must be present and hopefully they're not dressed like the dapper young man in all of their ads, because that means they're 100% better dressed than me. You do not have to be a Verizon custom either.

These freebies are given away on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last, so I'd show up early if you really want this freebie. They're giving away 130,000 free backpacks this year, which averages out to about 100 freebies per location, so these will go fast!!

Last year there were only 13 states with participating locations. It's nice to see that number double this year!


Free PETA Teach Kind Stickers

Free PETA Teach Kind Stickers

Here's another signup form still active for some free PETA Teach Kind stickers. This offer looks like a whole sheet of stickers and they don't seem to have any PETA brand markings on them whatsoever.

I think this offer is meant for teacher's only since it asks where you teach at. I said I taught at Goob School, given that I'm only as smart as a 2nd grader.


Freebies for Good Grades

Freebies, Discounts, & Deals for Good Grades!

I was a nerdy, smart kid with my nose perpetually in a book and that trait carried over into adulthood. I'm the guy at the end of the bar more interested in reading my Kindle than socializing with strangers. Yet I've never been offered freebies based on how much I read or how smart I am! Oh, to be a kid again.

There are a lot of other websites with outdated information on freebies for good grades. I only included offers I could verify to some degree, but I strongly encourage you check with your own locations no matter what! Since these restaurants are usually franchises, offers heavily vary by location.

Rewards via Report Cards

Allstate – Full-time students getting good grades qualify for their Smart Student Discount. They don't specify what constitutes “good grades,” nor do they say what the savings will be, so you'll need to ask your personal agent.

Amica – They have a form you can fill out requesting a good grade discount.

Applebee's – While not quite nationwide, they confirmed on Twitter that it's up to your local restaurant as to whether or not they give out freebies for good grades.

Many of the largest Applebee's franchises offer an “A is for Applebee's” reward program, where students 12 and under can get a free meal from the Kid's Menu if they receive an A on their report card. Here is The Rose Group's page, which covers DE, MD, NJ, and Baltimore. Meanwhile here's NRP's page, which serves FL, GA, and TX.

Your best bet is searching for “A is for Applebee's” on Google and then adding your city or state.

Many other freebie sites erroneously say this is a nationwide deal, but it's a great example of what kind of offer you can expect if your local franchise participates!

Baskin Robbins – They also confirmed on Twitter that giving away free scoops is “at the discretion of each franchise owner.” So call your local creamery!

Chuck E. Cheese – Anybody can print their Super Student Award 🙂 It's a redeemable certificate for 10 free tokens per day, however a food purchase is required.

Coldstone Creamery – They responded to my inquiry with “Hi, our stores are individually owned and operated. For special promotions and offers such as this, please reach out to your local store.”

So it sounds like this might still be active on a regional basis.

Farmer's Insurance – They have a “good student” promo where full-time students in high school or college under the age of 25 may qualify for a discount as long as they have good grades.

Financial Institutions – Hundreds of small banks, credit unions, and even insurance companies offer rewards for good grades as well! I highly suggest checking the website of any smaller institution you're with, as well as asking your local branch. I've seen some small banks offering up to $25 for good grades! Others offered smaller cash rewards, discounts, and other prizes.

I wish these offers had been around when I was a kid. I would have made some serious cash!

Geico – They offer a “good student discount” on insurance that's available when driving aged teens maintain a B average or better.

Jason's Deli – They replaced their old JDPickleCards offer with a new Kids Cash system. Kids under 12 got a free kid's meal at participating locations.

Liberty Mutual – You'll need a GPA of B or better in order to trigger their good student discount.

Nationwide – Students drivers aged 16 – 24 who maintain a B average qualify for a discount on auto insurance. Homeschooled students also qualify if they score in the top 20% of a test's national performance.

Pizza Hut – Pizza Hut used to have a site dedicated to this, but I believe it's since degraded to a “location specific” freebie. I'd definitely call ahead and ask! Hopefully they still recognize the great and classic Pizza Hut good grades deal. Seriously, I can remember getting this freebie in the late 80s!

Each marking period, any child who has 3 A's or the equivalent thereof, will receive one Personal Pan Pizza and a small soft drink or carton of milk by presenting his or her report card to the manager. This offer is good for Elementary and Middle School students. Dine-in only. Students must be present and the original report card must be presented.

Progressive – Save an additional 10% in most states just by maintaining a B average or better.

State Farm – Their “Good Student Discount” lets you save up to 25% if your teen driver gets good grades. These savings may last until your teen turns 25. Homeschoolers may also qualify with other options, such as submitting evidence they've taken certain national standardized tests administered within the past 12 months and ranked in the upper 20%.

Unconfirmed or Regional Offers & Freebies

Other sites report the following companies give freebies for good grades, but I've been unable to verify these claims on a nationwide basis. I've reached out to the following companies on Twitter, so please feel free to also message them and help get an answer 🙂

In the meantime, before trying to redeem any of these below, I'd make sure you call ahead first.

  • Bob Evans – As of 2019, the Star Student program “is not a program that is currently active at our restaurants.”
  • Burger King – Free hamburger or ice cream cone for scoring 100% on a test. This sounds crazy regional, so I would contact your local BK to see if they're participating.
  • Cheryl's Cookies – Their Cookies for A's program is for K-8th grade students, but I can't find any information regarding 2022.

    A very popular program at Cheryl's is the Cheryl's Cookies for A's. Students present their report cards at retail locations and receive a free cookie per A, for up to 3 A's they have earned.

  • Chick-fil-A – Free 8 pack of nuggets if you have all A's and B's on a report card.
  • Culver's
  • IHOP
  • Krispy Kreme – Free original glazed donut for each A, up to a half-dozen.
  • Marco's Pizza – Free one-topping pizza.
  • McDonald's – K-5 grade students with straight A's get a free Happy Meal. 6-12 grade students get a free Value Meal.
  • Red Robin
  • Sonic – As of 2022, they say “promotions vary by drive-in, we recommend contacting your local SONIC directly for the most up-to-date information. Thank you!”
  • The Melting Pot – The Boca Raton, FL location offers a free three or four course meal for straight A's! Others might have similar deals
  • Wendy's

I'll keep this list updated as I find new offers, so if you find anything I missed, please let me know in the comments!


Free Enfamil Baby Formula

Free Enfamil Baby Formula

Enfamil is giving away free 10oz. Enfagrow Toddler Next Step baby formula. I think this is an enfantastic offer for enfanew parents, but let's not overlook the important questions here. Why does Enfamil name all their enfaproducts with the same prefix. It's enfaweird.

In order to receive this freebie, your toddler must be at least 12 months old to qualify. Allow four to six weeks for delivery.

They also have a Savings and Support center where you can request up to $130 in savings and coupons.


Kids Roller Skate Free

Free Kids Roller Skating in 2022

Next up in our summer freebies series is a “OH DEAR GOD, JUST GET OUT OF THE HOUSE FOR A WHILE!” offer for all those stressed out parents 🙂 You can grab free kids roller skating passes good at a variety of locations in 36 states.

Once you locate a nearby rink, click their name to see dates, times, and age limits for their free skating. Register an account, then download the MyHownd app on your smartphone. This will be the app that lets you claim your kids free passes each week. Your first set of passes will be available in the MyHownd app on Monday morning following your free registration.

You will receive 2 Kids Skate Free passes per child, per week. These passes are only valid for one week and will automatically expire, but they're replaced with two new valid passes every Monday!

Some locations have a $4 signup fee to register. While not free, these passes don't expire until the end of the year, so you make your money back pretty fast.
