Free Lime Helmet

Free Lime Helmet

Lime, one of the new rent-a-scooter companies popping up everywhere, is giving away 250,000 free helmets if you pledge to wear them. I don't ride that many scooters, but I do fall down all the time. Think Lime will be cool with me just wearing my helmet around the house?

You should get a confirmation email saying all 25,000 helmets have been given away. But that was the previous free helmet promo Lime ran in November 2018, this is a new offer that launched today with 10x the amount of freebies. It looks like they forgot to update their email.


Free Martian Gardening Simulant

Free Martian Gardening Stimulant

Let's face it – none of us are likely to make it to Mars. I know, I know, I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But, we can get our very own piece of Mars for free!

The Martian Garden is giving away a free sample of free Martian gardening stimulant to students, teachers, and space enthusiasts.

Wait, this is supposed to help stimulate a garden? Isn't Mars barren? 🤔


Send Your Name to the Sun

Send Your Name to the Sun

Last year NASA let us shoot our names off to Mars. It was the closest I'd ever come to being an astronaut. At the very least, it was a cool way to let our future alien overlords know which ones of us appreciated space. Maybe they'll spare us.

However, with the current state of affairs in today's world, I think this new freebie seems a little more on point. To heck with Mars, let's send our name into the sun!

You have until 4/27/18 to sign up and have your name fly aboard the Parker Solar Probe spacecraft. This probe will go closer to the Sun than any spacecraft before it, as it plunge's through the Sun's atmosphere and is embraced by the warm, cleansing heat of our nearest star.

Still confused? Let this video by William Shatner answer none of your questions and leave you even more baffled.


Free National Park Maps

Free National Park Maps

One of HIF's most popular pages is our free state maps section, where I keep a running list of every free highway and road map available. Well today I added a new site to the list – free National Park maps! This site is run by a map enthusiast who also works as a park ranger. He's compiled over 1,600 high maps and I cannot confirm nor deny that I spent hours just surfing his site today.


free wildflower seeds

Free Cheerios Wildflower Seeds

Cheerios is giving away free wildflower seeds today. It might seem a little weird for a cereal company to be giving away flower seeds, but it's a little-known fact that a pinch of pollen is part of a healthy, balanced breakfast.

I wonder if this is a marketing ploy to convince people to plant Cheerios.

I was also able to find this $1/2 General Mills Big G Cereals coupon.


free weed alert poster

Free Weed Alert Poster

Some people like to keep track of all the different birds they've seen. Others enjoy marking off all 50 states license plates. However a new hobby has entered the arena: weed spotting!

Just pick up this free weed alert poster, head outside, and prepare to be … well, probably bored looking at weeds.


Free Sunflower Seeds

Too bad these free sunflower seeds are meant for planting, not eating. In order to get them, look for the image above (it's in the lower left) and upon clicking it, your email program will open. Send them you name and address and you're all set!


Send Your Face Into Space

Two years ago NASA offered to send your name to the moon. Now they're willing to blast your face into space! Sure, it's not a traditional freebie that comes in the mail, but I can't resist having my face float amongst aliens.

I fear it's the closest I'll ever come to traveling off our planet on account of my fear of heights. Plus, there's the fact that I'm vastly under qualified nor am I a rich Russian oligarch who can buy my way up there. But I'm sticking with the whole heights issue as my main obstacle.


Free AAA Fuel Cost Calculator

With rising gas costs and summer on the horizon, I thought this might be a helpful if not cool freebie for those of you who are planning on driving this summer. AAA has put together a free fuel cost calculator. After seeing how much it's gonna cost me to go to the beach this summer, I might just stay at home and fill my bathtub with cold water instead!


Free Worldwide Webcams

EarthCam is a totally free live webcam portal that streams hundreds of cameras from tourist and travel destinations! Unlike other portals with many dead links, the site is managed on a daily basis and EarthCam provides a view on a live webcam world and keeps looking for the best livestream webcams out there to display them on this site.

Someone singing in front of the Kremlin? A base jumper at the Eiffel Tower in Paris? A fight on the dance floor? A murder on the bay theatre? A car race at New York? With some luck (and very good eyes) you even can catch the Queen shopping in London! If you visit the webcam pages at different times you can watch beautiful live pictures of the Eiffel tower by night, a sunrise in Greece or a sunset in Portugal. Recently added were the magnificent webcam of the pyramids in Egypt. The main purpose is to watch Live what's going on in the world, at this moment.
