Free Home Depot Kids Workshop

Free Home Depot Kids Workshop

The next free Kids Workshop at Home Depot has been announced! You normally register ahead of time for these events, but now it's “first come, first serve.” Each local Home Depot is holding their event on different days and times.

March Freebie: Design and build your dream backyard where you and all of your friends can play!

You can find more info on this month's free craft here. The Home Depot Kids Workshop lets all kids keep their craft and receive a free certificate of achievement, free Workshop Apron, and free commemorative pin while supplies last.

These workshops are aimed at kids aged 5-12, though the age range is simply a guide instead of a strict rule. I can also confirm grown adults aged over 30 sometimes have trouble helping their little brother because I'm terrible with tools.

There are only a limited number of spaces available! Find your store, then scroll down and register. When I used to take my little brother, they didn't enforce a strict arrival time. We would often show up around 10am and have plenty of time to get the project finished before noon!

Home Depot Promotional Sales

While you're at the workshop, you might be interested in the latest online and in-store promotions at The Home Depot! Many of these deals are not tied to any event, with up to 75% discounts!

Home Depot also has a cool “Buy of the Day” section, where they offer one-day only sales at huge discounts. It's worth checking out, you never know what they have!

Arm & Hammer Clump & Seal Cat Litter Rebate

Arm & Hammer Clump & Seal Cat Litter Rebate, up to $19.99!

Arm & Hammer has a long-term rebate offer through July 2021 where you can get a free Clump & Seal cat litter, up to $19.99 in value! There are actually two cat litter rebate offers you can ultimately get. Two free boxes of cat litter might last my cat a whole day!

You can submit your rebate either online or by mail. Simply press the yellow “submit this offer” button for the correctly sized cat litter, then click “Accept Terms and Submit this Offer” and follow the instructions. Purchases must be made by 6/30/21 and rebates must be submitted by 7/31/21.

The rebate form says you need the original green peelie sticker from the box, plus the receipt and original UPC. However, if you submit your rebate online, they don't ask for the peelie. All you have to is take a picture of the receipt and enter the UPC. I've confirmed many other people have gotten their rebate already by submitting online without a peelie.

Update: I contacted Inmar Rebate Center and confirmed this rebate is valid for online purchases, not just in-store purchases!

A PDF or screenshot of the digital receipt or invoice for the online purchase should be accepted.

So virtually every Hiffer should be able to get this huge freebie!

[thanks to the awesome anonymous Hiffer who sent this in!]

Free Wink Condom

Free Wink Condom

Signup here to get a free Wink condom. There's a “blink and you miss it” joke somewhere in there.

I'd never heard of this brand before. However, I found they're a legit Japanese company that seems to be breaking into the US market. In that case, giving away freebies makes perfect sense!

If you're a new Hiffer, don't miss our huge list of free condom opportunities based on where you live!

Free Parents Magazine Subscription

Free Parents Magazine Subscription

Mercury Magazines are back with a fresh, free 2-year subscription to Parents magazine. Like with all other MM freebies, you're all set after you submit your mailing address. Ignore any “additional offers” and you'll come away with a 24 month freebie.

I don't know who owns Parents magazine, but I'd like to take this opportunity to pitch my services as an author. I may not be a parent, but I think being an older sibling certainly gives me an angle that warrants my own column. Heck, I could easily pound out a few thousand words on the Top Twelve Ways To Scare Your Sister or Eight Surefire Methods To Tie Up Your Brother by this time next week!

Free Dollar General Beauty Tote Bag

Free Dollar General Beauty Tote Bag

Sign up for free and take their short beauty quiz and Dollar General will send you a free beauty tote bag!

Chances are we'll get extra coupons, along with free samples, in our free tote bags. I should say “chances are good” that'll happen. Chances are bad that our freebie will contain a rabid badger. I'm just saying, it's not a zero percent possibility!

They have 200,000 of these to give away by 12/31/21, but I doubt these last until the end of February, let alone December. They offered these last year and they expired within a month.

Free Paid Clinical Trials

Legit Clinical Trials Paying up to $800!

If you're one of the millions of Hiffers perpetually broke (I assume millions of you read HIF over each other's shoulder on a single, shared laptop), I know how you feel. However, it could be worse. Imagine if we were also sick on top of being strapped for cash! I know when I was going through chemo, the last thing I needed was another bill.

If you find yourself in a similar boat, one possible method of making a little side money is through paid, legitimate medical research studies. If you have a qualifying illness and live in a needed area, you can apply for a paid clinical trial earning hundreds of dollars!

These types of studies help doctors and research scientists better understand illnesses and diseases as well as find treatments and cures. Some of the studies are demographic while others involve study products or placebos. The trials are run by Acurian, a company who specializes in recruiting potential qualifying candidates for the trials.

When applying for these, I still recommend using your freebie email and freebie phone number. That way, if you change your mind on participating in a trial, you can easily stop any future calls or emails.

While researching Acurian and clinical trials, I came across, a searchable database of licensed clinical trials run by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. While many of these do not pay for participation, I've included links to recruiting studies for many of the diagnoses below. When applicable, I also included links to unpaid NIH clinical trials.

As usual, I'm not a professional anything! If you get accepted to a paid study, please make sure to talk it over with your medical doctor first!
