Here's a new signup form offering free La Roche-Posay sunscreen. The 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 during my last vacation. 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.
Check your Sampler accounts for possible free Axe antiperspirant stick and dry spray. I didn't personally qualify, but then against Sampler seems to hate me. I never seem to qualify for anything anymore. I must have made fun of them one too many times over the years. 🤷♂️
Here's a new link for yet another round of free TENA adult sample kits. This new link has a huge selection of pads, liners, and underwear available for both men and women. You can also use the older links below to find additional, different TENA samples still available.
My friend Tina TENA has revamped their classic free women's pads and free men's guards samples to better centralize all the full-sized samples they offer. These are a great freebie for those who can use them properly, but they also make me a bit nostalgic for times long past. When I started HIF over a decade ago, I used the first TENA freebie to convince my little brother that I wasn't potty trained. It was a long-con prank that I still consider one of my top 10.
And now he's about to graduate from college!
You can click the orange “GET FREE TRIAL” next to any item you'd like to sample. There's also the green “Get a Free Trial Kit” near the top that will instead ship samples based on your answers to two questions. I know, it's a lot of pressure, try not to panic or choke like yours truly. My hands are trembling over here.
*clicks link and freezes like a deer in headlights*
Lastly, they have a whole line of free TENA Intimates samples you can choose from. Some of these free trial links are broken, but a handful are still working as of 2022.
All of these sample programs from TENA run independent of each other, so you can sign up for as many as you need!
While hanging out with my adult brother recently, he shared a story that quickly had me gasping for breath through fits of laughter. The short version is while running extremely late for work one morning, he was frantically looking for clean underwear when he remembered a freebie “underwear” package had arrived days prior. Within minutes, after scrambling to get dressed so as not to be late for work, he breathed a sigh of relief as he climbed into his car. As he regained his thoughts and his brain finally caught up to the unfolding reality, he quietly asked aloud to nobody but himself “hey, are we wearing a diaper right now?”
Hahahaha, there is no way I could have been born into a more perfect family.
Signups are open for next year's free Colgate Bright Smiles, Bright Futures classroom kits. They usually ship around February each year. The kits contain a video and other easy-to-use classroom materials, like posters & storybooks, plus free Colgate toothpaste and toothbrush samples for 25 kindergartners or first-grade students.
I presume the video is a guide on health care and not something fun like The Matrix.

For the rest of this year, you can redeem this rebate and get free Differin acne treatment gel! This rebate offer only applies to one purchase of Differin Gel 15g or 45g, up to a maximum refund of $35.
Eligible purchases must be made by 12/31/22 and you must submit your rebate form by 2/7/23. They ran this promo in 2021 as well, so you won't qualify for this current rebate if you took advantage of the previous offer.
If you missed the earlier free EpiPen replacement post, then definitely check that out. It's an amazing freebie that's still active if you can't afford an EpiPen.
In that post, I briefly mentioned how HIF has a brand new free prescription card that you can print out and start using immediately. It's a free drug card that helps people without health insurance afford their important medicine. You can print this page or bookmark it and start using it immediately!
Well, today I woke up to this alert.
That's a $78 prescription bill that some Hiffer only paid $25 for! I have no idea who they are or what they bought, but the idea that I helped somebody knock 2/3 off their medicine bill puts a giant smile on my face.
If you don't have health insurance but still need medication, then all you have to do is print out a free drug card and take it to any participating pharmacist (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, most grocery chains, and thousands of independent retailers) to get a free discount on your prescription drugs.
How much are the free prescription savings?
Most savings are anywhere in the 10-30% range, but as you can tell from the example above, some drug discounts go as high as 85%!
Again, this discount drug card is only for Hiffers without health insurance, but it's 100% free and all you have to do is print out a card at home and take it to your nearest participating pharmacy the next time you need any medicine!
Multiple Ways to Save on Meds!
It's surprisingly easy to use the free drug card.
Each of these methods works, so take your pick!
Print unlimited copies of this page (in black and white, no need for color!) to always have a copy. Keep a card in your car glove box, purse, wallet, etc. so you always have a free card when you need it!
You can also give printed cards to friends and family who qualify. There's no reason not to share the savings!
I will follow up with you via email, so please use your correct information!
Print a free pet drug card too!
It's not just us humans that need meds either! If you have a pet, you can also print out a free pet drug card! 🐶 🙀
Make sure you print this page or bookmark the link on a smartphone so you don't miss the savings!
I can't emphasize enough that this drug card isn't meant to replace health insurance, but instead help those without it. If any of you fall into that category, hopefully this will help you save a little money!
If you have experience with these, please share in the comments.
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.
If you don't mind going on a little link hunt, you can easily get a full-sizedfree NeilMed Sinus Rinse bottle kit OR Neti Pot. Simply click through to where it requests your name and pick “p1886b” from the dropdown list. After that, you'll be presented with 17 “slides,” which you don't have to read and can quickly skip through. You'll then be presented with a signup form and finally, a “quiz” where you have to get 18 out of 20 questions correct.
The quiz lets you change your wrong answers in real-time though! You can randomly click until you get the correct answer or use the answers I listed below. 😁 All in all, it should only take a few minutes to request this great freebie.
For years, this freebie took 6-8 weeks for delivery. I'm not sure if covid will interfere with that here, but don't be crazy surprised if this shows up in mid-June! This is for a large-sized product though, so the wait is worth it in my book. Especially if you suffer from allergies, sinus clogs, or colds!
Sometimes these freebies come with packets of Sinus Rinse, which is a sinus rinsing something that does something for congested noses. If that ringing endorsement didn't encourage you to sign up, how about this humdinger of a fact. “Some research shows that hypertonic (2.7%) or more concentrated solution may help reduce sinus congestion better than isotonic (0.9%) solution.” I have no idea what that means, but it sounds technical and therefor impressive. I'm easily persuaded by science.
Does anybody else get the impression that this company was formed solely because the owner liked sticking weird things up his nose? No, just me? Okay, carry on.
