Free National Parks Admission

Free National Park Pass for 4th Graders worth $80!

In addition to the free National Park Admission Days scattered throughout the year, did you know that 4th graders can get a free entrance pass worth $80 as well? Even better, these freebie passes work for the entire family!

Simply sign up here and then use your pass at any national park this summer. This pass will grant free entrance to 3 adults and all children under 16, as long as you're all traveling in the same car with your 4th grader.

You'll need to print your pass and bring it in the car when you visit a park. Electronic copies aren't accepted and each pass has a unique code, which means you can't share it.

Don't forget you can also request free national park trip planning kits for select parks around the country.

2021 Free Fishing Days

2022 Free Fishing Days

The free 2022 fishing days have been announced for all 50 states and DC! On these specific days, unique to each state, you are allowed to fish without a fishing license. Most of the 2022 dates seem to fall around early June, but there are plenty of May, July, and August dates on there as well.

Most freebie sites only list the dates, but I've put in the extra work and found all the corresponding links & announcements to back them up. Below are all 50 states free fishing dates along with links for proof!

Make sure to check your state's official website for extra details. Some states actually offer free fishing rods, tackle, and bait during their free fishing weekends!

On a related note, I learned about the existence of fishing licenses the hard way. I was grateful the game warden took pity on me when he saw I not only failed catching a single fish, but was also tangled in the fishing line when he pulled up.

Saved by my own ineptitude!

Free Wildflower Seeds

Free Wildflower Seeds

Airwick has brought back their offer from last year where they'll send free seeds to plant in your yard. I'm guessing they want us to help make the air smell better.

Hey, wait a minute, that's Air Wick's job! 😀

Expired Free Seed Offers

In 2016, Bayer ran a campaign giving away flower seeds so we could help our local bees. That offer has long since expired, but luckily I found a new offer today for free wildflower seeds aiming to help both bees and butterflies!

Choose from either Black-Eyed Susans or Butterfly Milkweed seeds and plant them in your yard. Once grown, they'll help keep your local bees & butterflies find pollinator-friendly plants. It's a tough world out there for bees. First they have to deal with colony collapse disorder, then there was that whole weird Seinfeld movie, and yet now their worst nightmare has come true as they can't find flowers to pollinate!

They also released this little video. It's a bit old now, but it's cute and has upbeat music and isn't that all we really need right now?

Free Michelin Tire Gauge for Teenagers

Free Michelin Tire Gauge for Young Adults

If you're between 16 to 24 years of age – okay, let's be real for a second. I know HIF's demographics. I've been running this site for almost 17 years now. There aren't any teenagers reading this site anymore 🤣. Let me try this again.

If you're the parent of a young adult (much better), then be sure they sign up for a free Michelin tire gauge. They'll also be entered to win a content.

They only have 10,000 of these to give away, so please don't request one unless you're a teenager. The good news is this offer just went live today, so if you sign up now, chances are you'll get a freebie. Freebies will begin shipping after the contest ends on 2/22/22.

Free Proven Winners Gardener's Idea Book

Free 2022 Proven Winners Gardener’s Idea Book

Signups are now open for the free 2022 Proven Winners Gardener's Idea book. I feel like a fraud requesting this freebie since I don't have much of a green thumb. I swear the last time I went to buy a plant, a few of them verbally shouted “nooooo, don't let him pick us!” while inching their pots deeper onto the shelf.

However, if you're not a plant serial-killer like me, then this freebie will contain tips & ideas on great way to get ready to garden this spring.

These booklets are set to ship in late March 2022, but supplies are limited so you should signup today. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.

Free Tree from Arbor Day Foundation

Possible Free Tree for Your Yard!

The Arbor Day Foundation has teamed up with utility companies around the country to offer free trees for your yard! This is a promotion aimed at lowering your summer energy bill while helping make your area a little greener.

By planting trees, you can save up to 20% on your summer energy bills and clean the air & water in your community.

To see if any are available in your area, head here and enter your address. For a full list of participating companies and areas, see this page.

Free Ducks Unlimited Decal

Free Ducks Unlimited Decal

I'm not much of an animal hunter. I have, however, participated in many a human hunts as my teams main “Seeker” during late night games of Manhunt and Capture the Flag, so I think I'll get myself this free Ducks Unlimited decal for my window. Decals should arrive within 2-4 weeks.

This freebie has been around since 2007! It's not every day I find a freebie in our archives that's been active since the Bush Administration.

Free Vegetable & Food Seeds

Free Vegetable & Food Seeds

Alpha Foods is running a “grow your own meat” campaign where they'll send us free packets of food & vegetable seeds! There are three packages of seeds and I think they're going to send us all three!
