Five Ways to Make Giveaway Promotions Work for You

Do you have that friend or acquaintance that always seems to be getting things for free, whether in sample size or even full size, thereby saving all kinds of money out of their own pocket? And it’s more than just the money savings; when you’re getting things for free, it’s quite normal to get a first look at new products, models, flavors, scents, etc. With that said, you’ve probably also looked at that friend or acquaintance and wondered how they do it, where do they manage to get all this free stuff, and better yet, how can you get in on it?

Here we’ll take a look at ways to make giveaway promotions work for you, including some handy tips to ensure you’re getting the stuff you actually want.

Start Doing Your Research

The first step in finding free things is to do your research. Ask that friend or family member how they are doing it, where are they getting this seemingly endless supply of free stuff. Often the internet can prove to be a great source where free stuff is concerned.
Take Just Freebies as an example - you can discover them online.  The site works by gathering all the very best free product offerings out there, saving you from having to search them out yourself. As well you'll also find coupons and other bargains available through the site. The site gets about 1.5 million visitors per month, making it one of the most popular of its kind.

Visit Company Websites

It’s also a good idea to visit company websites of products you are interested in to see if there is a free trial offered. Sometimes you can join the company’s email list or provide your address in exchange for a free sample or free trial of the product. Just make sure you aren’t giving out your credit card or payment information for anything. When the products are free there is no need for this information.

Only Take What You Are Interested In

Another tip is to make sure you are only taking giveaways and free stuff that you are actually interested in. When you see the word “free” it can cloud your mind and fool you into thinking you need everything. If you take this approach, you’re probably going to end up with a lot of waste that other people could have used. Just because it’s free it doesn’t mean you necessarily need it.

Always Read the Fine Print

It’s also important that you read the fine print of these giveaway promotions, just to be sure you aren’t missing an important detail.

Be Prepared to Wait

The one downfall with these giveaway promotions is that rarely do they arrive in the mail quickly. Remember, these companies don’t want to have to spend a fortune on shipping, so they will pick the most economical option – which is the slowest. If you want the item in a hurry, you’re best to look for a coupon that you can redeem for a free product, or that you can send in and get reimbursed for. This means you won’t have to deal with shipping at all and the product will be in your hands quickly.

Start Enjoying All That Great Free Stuff as Well


With these tips, you’ll be able to start enjoying all that great free stuff as well. This means you can sample new products that have just been launched, and those items that you’ve been wanting to try but haven’t wanted to shell out the money on until you formed an opinion on them.
