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 Home Depot Kids Workshop

Next Free Home Depot Kids Activity Kit on August 6!

The next free Kids Activity Kit from Home Depot is almost available! These in-store events take place on the first Saturday of each month from 9am to 12 noon, which means the next event is Saturday, August 6! No registration is required.

If you prefer, you can purchase this month's kit here while supplies last and guarantee you'll get one! This is completely optional though. You can also purchase an earlier kit, which supplies last. I've linked to the ones I could find down below.

August Freebie Event: Summer Camper

The kits include nails, screens, stickers, and wooden pieces. You will need to provide your own sandpaper, wood glue, hammer, and #2 Phillips screwdriver.

Home Depot August 2022 Free Summer Camper

In addition to keeping the craft forever, each kit comes with a free certificate of achievement, free Workshop Apron, and free commemorative pin. You can find more info on this month's free craft here.

These free craft kits are intended for kids aged 5-12, though the age range is simply a guide instead of a strict rule. I can also confirm grown adults aged over 30 sometimes have trouble helping their little brother because I'm terrible with tools.

There are only a limited number of kits available per store! Find your local Home Depot and then call ahead to make sure they still have free kits available.

Most stores give these away at the customer service counter. Other stores reportedly give these away near the checkout registers.

Don't miss the free Workshop Extension Activity!

Each free kit also has an “extension activity” created in tandem with Discovery Channel Education. These are kind of cool, as they let your child “upgrade” the free craft they built. For instance, the November 2021 Amphibious Military Vehicle extension teaches your child how to build life vest for their imaginary passengers.

Free Home Depot Kit 2022 Schedule

If you really want to plan ahead, here's the full Home Depot kids workshop schedule for 2022. While supplies last, free kits are available during their entire month.

During normal years, these are in-store events held on the first Saturday of each month from 9-12pm. However, due to the ongoing pandemic, they've halted the in-store events and shifted this cool freebie to a month-long take-home kit.

Please remember to call your local Home Depot store to make sure they have remaining kits available!

Get craft kits for home for under $5!

If you miss out on any kits, Home Depot is now selling previous months kits online for less than $5! After purchase, you can opt for free in-store pickup at your own convenience.

Home Depot Promotional Sales

While you're at the workshop, you might be interested in the latest online and in-store promotions at The Home Depot! Many of these deals are not tied to any event, with up to 75% discounts!

Home Depot also has a cool “Buy of the Day” section, where they offer one-day only sales at huge discounts. It's worth checking out, you never know what they have!


Free Duracell Batteries AA AAA Office Depot OfficeMax

Free Duracell Batteries at Office Depot & OfficeMax

Through Saturday, August 6, Office Depot/OfficeMax Rewards Members can get 2 free packs of Duracell Coppertop batteries after rebate rewards! You'll get 100% back in store credit added to your rewards account. This credit can be used on anything during your next purchase.

Here are the exact steps to follow:

  1. Create a free Office Depot/OfficeMax Rewards Members account and login.
  2. Add at least one of these battery items to your cart and proceed to checkout.
  3. Select free in-store pickup if you want to keep this 100% free. Otherwise, select a shipping option to send these straight to your home.
  4. Receive 100% back in Rewards Member credit. It will become available in your online account within 5 weeks.

At the very least, you can use this credit on the next battery promo, giving you a rolling free battery offer all year long! They seem to offer this 100% rebate at least once a month.

I'm happy these are Coppertop and not Copperhead batteries. I'm 1% Indiana Jones, in that I loathe snakes. And Nazis. And I love history. Hey, look at that, I'm closer to 3%!


Free Hallmark Card Each Month

Free Hallmark Card Each Month in 2022!

Join their free Crown Rewards program and you'll get a free Hallmark Card in-store each month through December 31! Each card is worth up to $3.99, so this entire offer is valued around $48.

To redeem this, simply use the coupon they email you or login to your account and look under Hallmark Offers or view their card selection here.

This offer previously expired in June 2021, but it was so popular that they extended it throughout 2022. That gives us 18 extra freebies!

Free Micro Center 240gb SSD

Micro Center: Free 256GB SSD

If you have a local participating Micro Center (full list of 16 states at bottom of coupon page), then request a coupon good for a free 256GB SSD! Similar sized solid state drives usually retail for around $30, so this is a nice little freebie!

Additional Micro Center Freebies

Here's an auto-updating list of all the active Micro Center freebies still available!


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 McAlisters Deli Iced Tea Day

McAlister’s Deli Free Tea Day on July 21

This is the 12th year in a row that I've promoted this delicious freebie. Time flies when you're … slowly … drinking tea? I don't know, I was never good with proverbs.

The next free Tea Day at McAlister's Deli will be held on Thursday, July 21. Stop by your nearby location and get a free 32 oz. tea.

According to the fine print, free tea includes sweet tea, unsweet tea, sweet tea/unsweet tea, tea/lemonade, LTO Blackberry Tea and flavor shots.

The offer is valid from 10am to close with no coupon or purchase necessary. If only all in-store freebies were this easy!

Also, if you enjoy McAlister's, make sure you sign up in advance for the McAlister's Deli birthday freebie!

[thanks to everybody who reminded me!]


Free Lowe's Kids Workshop Craft

Free Lowe’s DIY Kid’s Kit – Muscle Car on August 20!

Registration is now open online for a free DIY kid's workshop to be held on Saturday, August 20 from 9am-12pm. Here's the signup link.

Lowe's has brought back their popular free kid's projects with DIY kits available every 2nd weekend of each month! The suggested child's age ranges for the Lowe's DIY Kits are between 4-11. All supplies and instructions are included, making it a fun children's task to complete.

​Cruise into Lowe's with your mini DIYer for this month's free Muscle Car Kit! We'll provide all the parts needed to roll away with a fun, hand-built car that kids can really play with.

These look so cool – and they actually work! 8 year old Goob would have loved this toy and 39 year old Goob would totally pick it up late at night after all the kids had fallen asleep.

Free Lowe's Kids Workshop History

For over a decade, the free Lowe's Build & Grow workshop clinics were a staple monthly freebie. Just like the free Home Depot Kids Workshop, you could take your children to Lowe's on certain weekends and come away with a cool, custom built freebie. They were in-store workshops though, where attendees could make awesome projects right in Lowe's with the provided tools, safety gear, and work space. Then 30 minutes later the kids would always get to take home the cool toy craft they just made along with a collectible commemorative pin. They even gave coupons and discounts to workshop participants!

They shut the program down in 2017, so it was really nice to see registration for these kits return in 2022. I really hope you and your family have been enjoying these freebies too!


Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event

Free JCPenney Kids Zone Event on August 13

Mark your calendars! On Saturday, August 13, stop by your local JCPenney between 11am-noon for the next free Kids Zone event. These free events are held by JCPenney on the second Saturday of each month. Just like my laundry cycle!

Your child will design and make a free pencil pouch to design & take home. Craft pouches include 3 markers and an erase. They'll also get a free ID badge, lanyard, and collector's pin, and a Master Medallion once they complete 6 crafts.

All necessary materials will be provided and you don't need to signup ahead of time. As a thank you for coming, parents also receive a 10% off coupon valid for that day only. The coupon can be used either in store or online.


Free A&W Root Beer Float

Free A&W Root Beer Float thru Aug 6

I'm sure I don't have to tell you that Sunday, August 6, 2022 is National Root Beer Day. What you might not realize is we get a free A&W root beer float now through August 6! That's right, you can get your freebie over the next 3 weeks. This is the first time A&W has offered a freebie on multiple days during their annual celebration!

All you have to do make sure to join their free A&W Mug Club today and you'll then get a free coupon to take to your local A&W and pick up your freebie.

Okay wiseguy, you're right, that's not all you'll have to do. You'll need to walk inside or at least go around the drive-tru and ask for your freebie. It's not like the floats will be sitting outside in the parking lot.

When making your free Mug Club account, be sure to enter your birthday to automatically trigger the A&W free birthday food offer!
