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!
