Free Seed Card

Free Wildflower Seed Card

Arm & Hammer is giving away a free wildflower seed card to the first 155,000 people to sign up. They're only at 85,000 right now, so you've got a little time.

Seed cards are basically biodegradable business cards with little seeds in them. You then plant the card, the paper breaks down into plant nourishment through a complicated process that one scientist referred to as “no comment Goob, stop calling my home phone,” and then a few months later you've got a free plant!

You might have to copy and paste the link for it to work, so here ya go.

Your free seed card should arrive in 4-6 weeks.

Free Yellowstone Trip Planner

Free National Park Trip Planning Kits

Today I found these free National Park trip planners for places like Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Grand Canyon, Black Hills, and more! These are great freebies to pair with your next free National Parks Admission day trips!

These guides include trip planner publications, park maps, email newsletters, and travel information and deals from their preferred travel partners. Some of the parks offer unique travel guides on road tripping to visit them. For instance, the Yellowstone guide includes places to check out while driving from Salt Lake City, Chicago, or Denver.

According to National Park Trips, each guide should include the following:

  • Our favorite road trips to the parks launching from cities with major airports and other popular launching points. Some road trips include itineraries for multiple parks.
  • Overview of national park entrances and their closest gateway towns.
  • Basic national park maps so you can get your bearings.
  • Guides to lodging inside the parks
  • Wildlife-watching field guides.
  • Itineraries of the best things to do in the parks.
  • A packing list
  • Park entrance fees
  • And more

Ohhh, I love “and more!”


Free Seeds Packet

Free Packet of Seeds

Feed a Bee is offering free garden seed packs while supplies last. Each seed packet contains about 200 wildflower seeds and you can request up to 20 free packets!

The seeds included are a mix of wildflowers, including partridge pea, black-eyed Susan and purple coneflower, that will grow well in most regions. I'm hoping they sprinkle in a few of those Money Trees my Dad was always talking about! I still contend he should have bought one instead of working so much.

I believe the earlier free wildflower seeds offer is still active too!

Free TNT Firework Club

Free TNT Fireworks Club

This freebie was originally posted on Dec 2, 2008 (!!!) and is available again.

Talk about a freebie offer that never quits! I first posted this free TNT Fireworks Club offer over a decade ago, but it's still kicking. I've even still got one of their stickers on my old laptop. There's also a poster, magnet, and some tattoos that come with this, but no fireworks unfortunately. I was looking forward to getting a stick of TNT and blowing something up like they do in the cartoons.


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? 🤔
