Free Hallmark Card

3 Free Hallmark Encouragement Cards!

Hallmark is sending out 3 free Encouragement cards to help spread words of support! And they're giving away a million of them!

Don't worry, they're spreading them out so that we each get a free 3-card pack of greeting cards. I don't know what I'd do if they sent me all one million freebies. It'd probably involve building the world's largest greet card fort on my apartment's roof.

These ship without any cost, so enter your mailing address and you're all set to get this $9 value freebie. After submitting your address, you'll get a confirmation number on the next screen.

Last year, Hallmark gave away 3 million general greeting cards in total (they ran this promo three separate times). My friends and family don't have many winter birthdays, so I went with a generic “get well soon!” card. It's nice to have them on hand for those last minute events. In fact, I keep a drawer full of them, some of which include timeless messages as “Y2K is almost here!” and “I'm glad to hear you didn't contract SARS.”

If you love this freebie, then you'd love my mom. I swear, there are more unused Hallmark cards in her house than any other object. You could combine every individual coin, light bulb, and battery and I promise you there'd still be 10 times the number of cards. I'm sure if I dug deep enough in the drawer, I could find something for National Dog Day.

free united states pocket constitution

Free United States Pocket Constitution

If you're always wondering which Amendment promises no cruel and unusual punishment (it's the 8th) or which promises freedom of speech (1st) or even which promises free jelly beans on Tuesday (sadly this one hasn't been passed yet), then pick up a copy of this free United States Constitution from Hillsdale College.

This booklet contains 52 pages with the United States Constitution, The Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, and the 11-27 Amendments.

After submitting your address, you'll get a confirmation page saying your freebie is on the way along with a request for donations. You can close this window without entering any credit card info and you'll still get the freebie!

Free Paso Robles Postcards

Free Paso Robles Postcards

The town of Paso Robles, CA is giving away free limited-edition postcards. Now for the unfortunate good news, bad new. The good news is Paso Robles is partially an anagram for “bloopers,” which sounds fun. Yet the bad news is Paso Robles also makes an anagram for “barless,” which sounds miserable. Use this arbitrary, pointless info however you see fit.

Postcards will begin shipping in late January. Please allow 7-10 days for mailing time. Available while supplies last.

[Thanks to Hiffer Jean for sending these in!]

Free Greeting Cards

Three Free Greeting Cards

Free Greeting Cards

The Human Rights Campaign is giving away three free greeting cards!

You're finished once you submit your mailing address on the first page. It will take you to a page asking for donations, but they aren't required in order to get this freebie.

You know, there's a small but non-zero chance that the owner of a greeting card company might read this post. If such stars have aligned, I'd like to make my pitch as a potential Greeting Card Author Prodigy. I think I'd be great at it and have included a few samples of my work below:

Roses are red, Violets are blue, Hey look over there, That cow just said moo.

That could be used as a fun road trip card. Or maybe for cow enthusiasts! But what about a more intimate card? Oh, I've got just what you need:

Roses are red, Violets are blue, Something something something, I love you!

See, I can write sweet nothings. I'll be awaiting your response and will accept payment in the form of burlap sacks stuffed with cash.

Free Reusable Straw

Free Reusable Metal Straw

One small way to limit the waste of disposable plastic straws is to stop using them! Like all other plastic, much of it ends up in the oceans, where it breaks down into microscopic pellets that frequently ends up in sea life. That's what we call No Good.

So, in order to help cut down on this travesty, you can get a free reusable straw made out of … paper? How are we supposed to clean a paper straw? Heck, wouldn't our beverages themselves ruin a paper straw? Am I insane?

Oh, it's made out of metal. That makes so much more sense.

[thanks to all the Hiffers who sent this in!]

Free Mike Bloomberg Matches

Free Mike Bloomberg Matches

Free Mike Bloomberg Matches


If you've enjoyed watching Mike Bloomberg light giant piles of money on fire lately with all his TV ads, then you'll love these free “You're Fired” Mike Bloomberg matches. I tried signing his campaign office up for these, so he'd get the hint, but no luck.

Free Penzys Kind Heart Pin

Free Penzeys Kind Heart Pin

Though Sunday, January 5, you can get a free Penzeys kind heart pin. I'm honestly not sure if this form will submit, as it showed up a few months ago when Penzeys first ran this promo. But it's worth a shot before the promo ends.

This deal comes around once every few months. It's primarily an in-store freebie. So if you want to guarantee to get this freebie, I'd stop by your local Penzeys to pick one up immediately.

Otherwise, I'd fill out the form and cross your fingers, like I'm doing! 🀞

Free Wildflower Bookmark

Free Wildflower Bookmark

Free Wildflower Bookmark

The Nature Conservancy of Arizona is offering free wildflower bookmarks that you can stick in a book or the ground.

Yep, you read that correctly! Not only will this bookmark keep your pages straight, but it will also sprout wildflowers if planted in soil.

I'm no scientist, but I feel like a bookmark that grows flowers is one step closer to the fabled Money Tree! With my luck, my Money Tree will only grow rubles.

Free Pint of Halo Top Ice Cream

Free Pint of Halo Top Ice Cream on Sept 22

Free Pint of Halo Top Ice Cream

Halo Top Creamery is celebrating the first day of fall by giving away a free pint of Halo Top ice cream on September 22 only. They're promoting their Pumpkin Pie flavor, but you'll be able to get any flavor you want.

The coupon will become available at 12:01 am ET on 9.22.18 and you'll have to redeem it by 11:59 pm ET that night at a local retailer.

Judging from my understanding of scripture, eating this freebie will not only be delicious, but should be enough to get you into Heaven!

This offer isn't available in CA, CO, KS, LA, NV, TN and WI. However, if you live one of those states, Halo will release a free coupon that day where you can get a non-dairy pint for free! Most companies simply write off states where local laws forbid them from giving things away, so it's nice to see Halo not leave those Hiffers out in the cold.
