Free Harley-Davidson Poster

As if it wasn't enough that there's this free Harley-Davidson poster offer, well, its actually one of 32 posters. Yup, Harley wants you to not only be happy with getting the motorcycle of your choice, but with finding the freebie poster of said motorcycle of your choice even before…

Now if only every freebie had this many choices…


Free Human Rights Information Kit

I think the first human right is that we should all have the right to have pancakes for dinner and steak for breakfast. As you can tell from the multiple food posts in a row, its time for me to eat so I don't get much loopier than this. So while I'm waiting for this free human rights information kit to come, I might have to create my own list of human rights and see if I can get people to follow them… I think my first right should be something about cake…

(Thanks again, Audrey!)


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 NASA Space Shuttle Engine

Free NASA space shuttle engine

My dream of one day conquering a distant planet took a giant leap forward today when I discovered that anybody can stroll over to NASA and get a free space shuttle engine.

Can’t scrape together nearly $29 million, but still want a taste of outer space? You can now get an actual engine from the shuttle for free, as long as you cover the costs of moving and housing the eight-foot-diameter, four-ton behemoths. The AP reported on Saturday that NASA tried to sell them for $400,000 to $800,000 apiece in December 2008, but got no offers and is now literally giving them away.

Four tons is nothing. I've been eating Wheaties for a few weeks and recently stepped up my workout weights from two to five pounds. I'm more worried about my space suit. As of now, the only thing I have is an old rain jacket with two giant trash bags duct taped to the bottom.

Tobacco Freebies, Gear, & Swag

Free tobacco cigars and cigarettes themselves are fairly rare. But freebies and swag from tobacco companies are some of the best freebies still offered! Great freebies are offered from various tobacco companies multiple times throughout the year – just check out the list below! Tobacco conglomerate Altria are constantly offering great free gifts and giveaways via their subsidiary brands, like Marlboro or Copenhagen.

If you don't want to miss out, I advise making a free account with Altria's three main parent companies – Philip Morris (cigarettes), US Smokeless (smokeless), and John Middleton Brands (cigars & pipes). Then when the next high value freebie is released, you won't have to waste time going through the verification process.

Your login credentials will work across all similar brand websites. I'd personally start with Marlboro. As you can see, registering with Marlboro then lets you login to 11 additional sites as well, which greatly increase your odds of snagging a freebie!

Philip Morris Brands – Cigarettes

  • Marlboro
  • Basic
  • Chesterfield
  • Commander
  • Dave's
  • L&M
  • Lark
  • Merit
  • Parliament
  • Players
  • Saratoga
  • Virginia Slims

Once setup there, I'd head to Copenhagen – the website, not the Danish capital. The bulk of smokeless freebies come from either them or Skoal.

US Smokeless Brands – Chewing & Smokeless Tobacco

  • Copenhagen
  • Cope
  • Skoal
  • Red Seal
  • Husky

Finally, I'd register with Black & Mild to gain access to their great offers.

John Middleton Brands – Cigars & Pipes

  • Apple
  • Black & Mild
  • Carter Hall
  • Middleton's Cherry Blend
  • Gold & Mild
  • Kentucky Club
  • Prince Albert
  • Royal Comfort
  • Sugar Barrel
  • Walnut

Now let's talk about that verification process for a minute. If you've never signed up for a tobacco freebie before, it can seem a little hard. The trick is that tobacco companies are forced by federal law to make sure you're not a minor. Thus, they must pay for a system that checks your identity against your state's DMV system.

When you register, depending on the state you live in, you'll possibly need to enter the last 4 digits of your social security number. Again, this is completely normal for tobacco freebies. The system using bank level of encryption to cross-check your name and address with the DMV's database to make sure you're 21 or older. Federal law mandates this!

This is why registering ahead of time is crucial. If their verification system is lagging or down and you haven't pre-registered, then you might miss out on the free samples, coupons, and offers!

Free Lanyards

My college gave out something similar to these free lanyards every year, except back then I called them Key Thingies To Swing Around. I think I nailed myself in the head while swinging my keys around approximately 92 million times in college. And it never once never messed never with me mind!


Free Engagement Gift

I love how this site doesn't say what the free engagement gift is. I also initially thought the company, whose real name is Conde Nast Bridal Group, was Conde Nasty Bridal Group. I think my version would have been a much funnier name, but maybe that's just me. Anyways, I posted this since I've got a ton of friends who recently got engaged, which baffles my mind. I can't even fathom being married this young, but again, that's probably just me.


Free Hotel Samples

If you don't mind pretending you work for a hotel (by filling in a hotel name in the, you guessed it, hotel field), then this company will send you a box full of free hotel samples! You know, those little bars of soap and bottles of shampoo that we all take with us when we leave anyways. It looks like this company is based in Europe, but I promise you, their hotel goodies are just like ours.


Free Rosary Beads

Free Rosary Beads

Free Rosary Beads

Here's yet another free rosary beads offer from Mary Queen USA!

I'm not religious at all, but I must admit that when I saw the offer for a free Rosary beads, I signed up within 30 seconds. This is a classic freebie that's been around for quite some time!

Note both signup forms have a field for donations, but they're marked optional.


Free Aluminum Cans & Bottles

I'm really hoping these aren't just regular aluminum bottles and cans, but super cool free aluminum bottles and cans. The ones on their website look kinda cool, so we'll see.


Free Fishing Decals

If you're a fan of fishing, then you'll love these free fishing decals that you can put on your vehicles or windows. As for me, I'm waiting on the decals that have Calvin peeing on a fish.


Free 35mm Roll of Film

For those of you who haven't already joined the digital age and are still using cameras that take rolls of film, here is a nice offer for some free 35mm film.
