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 240GB SSD! Similar sized solid state drives usually retail for around $30, so this is a nice little freebie!
Mark your calendars! The 20th annual Free Comic Book Day is slated for Saturday, August 14, 2021. We can get a free comic book that day at participating locations and this year they'll have even more freebies!
Free Comic Book Day 2021 will feature up to fifty free titles available at participating local comic shops. The titles will be comprised of up to twelve gold and thirty-five silver sponsor titles. Titles will be announced to the public in March and will appear in the April 2021 edition of the PREVIEWS catalog.
So mark your calendar and pick up a free issue for the … kids at home? Suuuuuure, let's pretend it's not for you and say it's for the little ones.
It's been years since I've read comic books. I even tried drawing my own once. It didn't have many super heroes, but starred a kid who refused to eat his vegetables, couldn't talk to girls, and looked ridiculous in his baggy jeans. I guess it wasn't so much a comic book as a journal. No wonder Marvel never took me seriously.
To make matters worse, I harshly learned on a recent date that comic books aren't an appropriate answer to “what have I read lately?” Suffice to say, there wasn't a second date.
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 from 2pm-8pm as part of their annual celebration. All you have to do is stop by 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.
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 $24.
To redeem this, simply use the coupon they email you or login to your account and look under Hallmark Offers.
One classic offer that always pops up this time of year is Taco Bell's free Doritos Locos taco. Since there was a comeback win in the NBA Finals, we get a free Doritos Locos taco at Taco Bell on Thursday, July 22.
This annual freebie has been around since 2008!
Signups for the next free virtual Michaels Kids Camp Creatology workshops are now open for multiple dates in the future! These free events are on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 4pm CT until August 6 and are designed for children ages 13 and up.
One small gripe is that they want you to pre-purchase the art supplies for $30 per weekly kit, which seems excessive to me. However, you can click through and see what each kit contains and then buy the supplies yourself for much cheaper. Heck, if you already have crafting material around, then you'll probably be good.
This is the 11th 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 22, 2021. Stop by your nearby location and get a free 32 oz. sweet or unsweet tea.
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!]

That's where most freebie announcements stop. But McDonald's is upping the ante by holding a contest where one MyMcDonald's Rewards member will win free fries for life, a prize valued at $19,685. 👀
Oh… oh please…whoever wins this, do not eat twenty grand worth of fries. Your arteries are begging you.
Where was I? Oh, right, the free
heart attack lifetime fries. Finally, McDonald's says 66 customers will be rewarded with 1 million McDonald's rewards points, which can soon be redeemed for free food.

As part of their menu relaunch, Subway is giving away a free 6″ Turkey Cali sub to the first 50 consumers to come in & ask for a free sub on Tuesday, July 13.

If you're scrambling for ideas and events to occupy the munchkins this summer, you should check out the annual free Apple Camp returning for 2021! These free events run each summer for kids 8-12. This year they are doing one day sessions that last for two hours. Kids will explore their creativity through fun, hands-on projects by making movie magic with short videos using the Clips app on iPad.
Apple Stores across the country are accepting reservations for limited slots. In past years, these slots filled up fast, so I'd sign up today if I were interested.
I first wrote about this freebie back in 2009, so Apple's been doing it a while! It always sounded like a pretty cool activity to me. Then again, I'm 37 years old, so I may not be on the cutting edge of what's cool these days.
If you have a nearby CVS, then be sure to download their free app to get in-store freebies each week through July 31!
