Free USPS Boxes and Envelopes

Free USPS Boxes, Envelopes, & Shipping Supplies

Ever wondered what you could do with a bunch of boxes? Well wonder no more my friends, because the USPS gives them away – for free! So go get your free USPS shipping supplies and build a fort for your kids…or yourself.

I originally posted this in 2006 (πŸ‘€) and it's still going strong all these years later.


Free POW MIA Recognition Day Poster

Free 2021 POW/MIA Recognition Day Poster

The 2021 version of a free POW/MIA Recognition Day poster has released. Sign up today in order to receive yours before September and you get to choose from an 11″ x 16″ or 20″ x 30″ sized poster.

Observances of National POW/MIA Recognition Day are held across the country on military installations, ships at sea, state capitols, schools and veterans' facilities. It is traditionally observed on the third Friday in September each year. This observance is one of six days throughout the year that Congress has mandated the flying of the National League of Families' POW/MIA flag. The others are Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day.

Click the blue “order poster” near the top right to pull up the form. It looks like they've removed the old questions requiring an answer to “how are you going to use this poster.” I guess they finally realized most people put posters on their walls.


Free IFCJ 2022 Fellowship Calendar

Free IFCJ 2022 Fellowship Calendar

IFCJ is giving away a free 2022 Fellowship Calendar. It's never too early to start requesting free calendars for next year!

You only need to submit your mailing address on the first page. You can ignore and exit out of the donation requests shown on the confirmation page.


Free Personalized Bottle Labels

Free Customized, Personal Bottle Labels

Alcohol companies frequently give away free customized, personal labels that fit on their product's bottle. You are typically able to upload a photo of your own, which they'll turn into a sticker and mail straight to your door.

I discovered a few of these while tidying up HIF's archives lately. One unexpected bonus of going through all that old work was reading the random jokes I've made throughout the years. If you throw out logic and reason, a few of them even made sense!

These free labels are constantly going up and down throughout the year. I'll use this post going forward to keep all the free personalized bottle label offers together on one simple page to find them.

Free Positive Promotions 2021 Calendar Sample Pack

Free Positive Promotions 2022 Calendar Samples

This free Positive Promotions 2022 calendar sample pack that we can sign up for might not be guaranteed to come, so let's cross our fingers and see what happens. This is the 4th or 5th year in a row they've offered it, so they have a nice track record at least.

Positive Promotions is an on-demand print company for promotional material, so this type of freebie is right up their alley. Veteran Hiffers might remember Oriental Trading ran a similar calendar promo for close to 10 years!

The form requires a company name and job title. I always say I'm the Caretaker of Goob Inc. My body is a temple, but it's for a religion long since forgotten to history. Luckily UNESCO deemed me a world heritage site in 1921. I'm just the latest guy hired in charge of making sure soil erosion or excessive sugar consumption doesn't destroy my core.


Free IKEA Secure Hardware Kit

Free IKEA Secure Hardware Kit

If you've got a small child at home or the prospect of a drunk-Goob ever visiting, you might want to pick up a free IKEA secure hardware kit. They're clearly designed for IKEA chests and drawers, but they should be simple L brackets that should work with most generic furniture as well.

They have two kits to pick from, depending on the size of your furniture, however you can pick both of them if you have a ton of potential weapons furniture.


Free ASPCA Pet Safety Pack

Free Pet Safety Window Decals

This free ASPCA pet safety pack is a classic offer that's still active. I posted this free pet window decal first in 2008 and yet here it is, active as ever. If you don't have a pet rescue window decal up on your house yet, or an Animal Poison Control Center magnet, then I'd definitely sign up for this freebie. It's such an easy, free way to make your dog, cat, or pet safe in the middle of a fire or emergency.

I've put these up in every home I've lived in. My brothers and I even once put the correct information on them instead of creative insult names for each other! Although, now that I think about it, my old pet window cling isn't by the front door anymore. That can only mean it peeled off, fell on the floor, and was most likely eaten by one of my dogs.

Looks like I need to request a new pet rescue sticker. Next to it, I'll put a HIF sticker and little drawing of me slumped over my computer and drooling. Because let's be real, if there's an emergency, I'm probably going to need to be rescued as well!

You'll need to confirm your email after requesting these. Once that's out of the way, you can expect your freebie in 8-10 weeks.


Free Charmin Toilet Paper Roll Extender

Free Charmin Toilet Paper Roll Extender

The ever classic free Charmin toilet paper roll extender freebie is still active and has a new link for US residents. No more precariously balancing larger rolls of toilet paper on broken towel racks!

You can order up to 3 free roll extenders per household and freebies should arrive in 2-4 weeks.

I feel like this freebie is a Top 10 for Longest Active Freebie, no? Trust me, young freebiers, this is an ancient offer. Gotta love the classics!


Free FTC You Are Here Bookmark

100 Free FTC Bookmarks

The FTC offers many different variations of free physical bookmarks in bulk. The smallest quantity you can order are 100 of them, so these might be great for any teachers or book clubs out there in HIF land.

I didn't personally order these because I didn't want to waste a hundred bookmarks. If you're only looking for a single free bookmark, then use this list of free bookmarks that I keep updated. I still use my tick identification bookmark, which is a sentence I never thought I'd utter!


Free Hard Water Test Strip

Free Hard Water Test Strip

Morton Salt is giving away free hard water test strips. I used to joke about the silly concept of “hard” water, but not anymore. Last week I turned on my shower and was greeted with an iron anvil to the chest.

I still have no clue how it got through my pipes.

These freebies should arrive within the next two weeks.
