A lot of people complain about the number of freebies on Facebook now, so let's see if they have the same aversion to Twitter. CVS is offering a coupon for a free candy or drink. Similar to Facebook freebies, you have to access their Twitter app in order to get this freebie. I guess it's time for me to make a tutorial on removing these as well. Based on my current to-do list, the expected ETA for that is around 2046.9
Occasionally people ask why they should follow HIF's Twitter or Facebook page. Well, for starters, it's how some Hiffers were able to get the large Tide sample from last week's Freebies Received post.
Basically I sometimes find smaller offers or freebies that are about to expire. Neither are worth the time or effort it would take to write a proper post, either because they're only available for certain people or will die before I can think of something funny. So instead I throw them up on Twitter and Facebook.
As a bonus, questions asked on Facebook are answered by other Hiffers
somewhat lightyears faster than if they were emailed to me. Turns out they're a pretty helpful and knowledgable bunch.
EDIT: This is no longer available.
If you want some free binaca, you can get a coupon for one free product via snail mail by signing up on their site. You have to click on steps one and two before the signup form appears under step three and you'll also have to confirm your email. The coupon should be good at all Walgreens and Wal-Marts but it might also work at additional stores.
On a related note, can anybody else think of binaca without simultaneously thinking of Jim Carrey talking with his butt in Ace Ventura? If so, kudos to you.

EDIT: Looks like this one died pretty quick.
Napster just posted on their Facebook page that anybody can get a free 1GB Creative Zen MP3 player by commenting of their status about the first concert you ever saw. You have to mention who it was, what year it occurred, and where it was held. After you've done so, send an email to [email protected] with your name and address and make sure to put EWW 7/7 in the subject line.
They're also offering this through their Twitter page. Simple follow them, tweet the same info as requested above, and then email your info.
A 1 gig MP3 player isn't that big, but it should be more than enough to hold all of my High School Musical soundtrack CDs! What can I say, I like to rock out while I'm working.
If you still have some free True Lemon lying around then take a picture of yourself drinking it, send it in, and get a free True Lemon tote bag! If you don't have anything to tote, you can always use it to carry around freebies. I find that giving away free stuff out of a bag is a great way to meet people at the mall and have the cops called on you!6
If you hate your current soap enough to take a picture of it, then do so and Dove will send you some free soap via Twitter. Dove should then contact you with a link to fill out for your free soap. Having trouble?
- Log-in / register with Twitter.
- Go to Dove's Twitter page and click the “Follow” button.
- Take a photo of your current soap. Then go to TwitPic.com and log-in with your Twitter info. Finally, upload your picture here.
- Head back to your Twitter page and send a message to Dove in the “What's happening?” box. Make sure to include a link to your picture as well as @Dove somewhere in your message. Look at mine for an example.
I know a lot of people are anti-Twitter, but the fact of the matter is that more companies are starting to use it to give away freebies, similar to how they do with Facebook. Best to embrace it now instead of missing out on offers down the road.
