Free Magic: The Gathering Deck

To say that I was a nerd growing up would imply that I'm no longer a nerd now. And seriously, how much more geeky could I be than writing for a freebie website and listening to podcasts while playing Dungeons and Dragons on Facebook? Yeah, exactly.

Back in November, I happened across a freebie that made me a bit nostalgic… See, in high school, I was a bit more of a nerd than I am now. I played Magic: The Gathering, Star Wars Collectible Card Game, and a vampire collectible card game. Yup, I'd scrounge up my money and buy decks of “collectible cards” that were supposedly worth “money.” And then, I remember the day that Pokemon cards came around, and all of my cards? Were worth about what I paid for one deck. Le sigh.

But now, I don't feel as bad by requesting this free deck of Magic: The Gathering cards. Because after I receive this free deck? I shall rule the world!

Until the new set comes out and totally pwns me… πŸ™


Free Custom Photo Bookmarks

Free Bookmarks

Everybody talks about the missing sock in the dryer conundrum that plagues us all, but how come we don't hear more about the vanishing bookmarks? I've gotten dozens of bookmarks over the years, however once these free bookmarks below arrive in the mail, my official Bookmark Count will be one. Where the heck do they all go?! Am I the only person who seems to be cursed with this phenomenon? Please tell me I'm not alone.

Most of these are physical bookmarks they'll send via the mail. There are also a few bookmarks you can print from home, if you have some thicker stock paper.

More Free Bookmarks

If you're looking for more themed bookmarks, then check out other bookmarks that are still active!

How to Easily Find Free Bookmarks

You can also find limited edition free bookmarks with good Google searches. I use request “free bookmark” -printable and it showed me to a lawn care specialist offering a free bookmark once. Years later, the same search took me to a dentist on the other side of the country offering to send me a bookmark in the mail.

And then there was the free scented bookmark I found. Finally! I can't tell you how many times I've been reading a good book and suddenly thought to myself “I could go for a good sniff of something right now.”

To find more bookmarks, substitute “request” for other words like send, mail, or sign up. Play around with it and let us know what you find!


Free USB Thumb Drive Stick

Free USB Flash Drive

Some days, I don't know what I'd do without my USB flash drive. I can keep snippets of lyrics on it, Mobile Firefox, world domination plans, and pictures of my wife and cats.

So when I saw these offers for a free USB flash drive, well, I couldn't resist. I only hope that I can get a new one for my lunar domination plans. First? I'll need a fish bowl and some rocket shoes…

Here are the active USB thumb drive promos I've found. The professions in parenthesis are what you'll need to pretend to be πŸ˜‰

If you find any more, please share in the comments!


Free Emergency Radio

Wow, it feels like I haven't posted a freebie in years. I've finally vanquished the bubonic plague that tried to take me down this past week, so I guess it's back to normal from here on out. I'm not sure I remember how to post a freebie though. Let's see, I used to ramble a little bit and then I'd make an uncomfortable segue to the freebie, like this free emergency radio. Then I'd toss in a closing zinger to wrap up the post into a neat little package before hitting the “publish” button.

Phew, good to know I haven't lost my touch!

Free Emergency Radio Giveaway

While the freebie above has long since expired (I posted it almost 12 years ago!), we've been getting a ton of people looking for one of these lately. So I decided to run a giveaway for a free NOAA emergency radio with both solar and hand crank charging option!


Free Firefighting Posters

Free Firefighting Posters

The U.S. Fire Administration have countless free publications available on their website. They have a whole host of pictographs, fire prevention posters, inforgraphs, handouts, pamphlets, and more.

I didn't order any since I'm a bit paste the stage where I put posters on my wall, but I'm sure there are a few parents out there who might be interested in getting a few for their kids. It's either these or a bunch of Hannah Montana & High School Musical posters, which incidentally are the #1 source of fires in the Goob household. I can't stand those freaking things and watching them burn is fun!


Free Dry Erase Whiteboard Marker Samples

Free Dry Erase Markers

Dry erase boards are awesome for hanging up next to your desk and being used to jot down important little notes and reminders that you promptly forget all about after writing them. Of course, you'll need a few free dry erase markers to write down that appointment next week that you'll miss or the phone call to return that you never will!

The sites listed below offer free pens for your whiteboards. In order to get your free dry erase marker sample, click the “Request a Free Sample” button on each site and fill out the shipping form.

These black markers are used for printing promotional samples, so they won't be brand name like expo markers. But they'll come full of ink and in many cases, they are unbranded markers from similar name brand supplies. So the freebies work perfect for classroom use, around the house, or in office settings. These markers also clean off white boards with normal alcohol or xylene cleaner.

You might get a follow-up email asking if you want to purchase more erasers or different colors, but these are not a bill. They're just an upsell attempt that can be ignored.

Sometimes you can get free whiteboard markers from sites like PINCHme too. I don't believe they currently have any samples, but it's always worth checking to see if they've restocked lately!


Free Can Koozie

If you're anything like me, you hate touching anything cold. In fact, almost every woman in my life thinks it's hilarious to wait until their hands are ice cold and then grab my arm or face with them. What is up with that, ladies?! Come on! Us men are not fans of that! So with that said, you can understand why I'd be signing up for one of these free koozies to keep my beverages chilled but my hands nice and toasty (you can see examples of the different options here). Unfortunately, it's freezing where I live right now and I'm bundled in about 19 blankets, so I doubt I'll be able to use this thing anytime soon!


Free World Heritage Map Poster

Woo hoo, a new map! This free World Heritage map poster will be sent to anybody who becomes a free member over at their site. They even have a .pdf copy of the map on their site that you can stare at in awe until your own copy arrives in the mail. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some staring to do.

They've since added a small shipping fee, so I've marked this as expired. However, they're still offering a free map if you're interested!


Free Worth It Motivational Poster

Free Posters

If your walls are looking a little bare, sign up for one of the free posters and publications listed below! They're the perfect icebreaker for anybody who comes into your place:

Friend: Hey, where'd you get that poster?
You: Uh, from Goob and HIF.
Friend: *weird look creeps upon their face*
You: This site called HIF links to free stuff…and the guy who runs it is named Goob.
Friend: *slowly begins to back away*
You: You know, it's a lot cooler than I'm explaining it.
Friend: Oh hey, look at the time *drops car keys as they fumble with your front door* I think I'm supposed to be somewhere else right about now.

I'm optimistic you're better at explaining HIF than I am.

A lot of these post are for displaying information about wildlife, animals, etc. for your kids or their school. Many of them are gorgeous print posters and I know some of the schools around here could use some extra stuff on the walls to spice up the classrooms, so I just ordered some!
