8 Ways to Score Freebies

Freebies?  Where?  Who doesn’t love free stuff?  What more if you get free stuff doing nothing?  Well.. here are 8 ways to score freebies.  Not all of them are free doing nothing.  Some needs a little bit effort which doesn’t require a significant amount of your time.

Attending a Grand Opening or a Convention:  I remember when I was still working in Beijing.  A retail store opened in our office building and as a way to show our support, we went there on the first day and spent about an hour of our time to listen to what the store is all about.  At the end of the talk, they gave each person RMB 50.  Some grand opening offer discounts or will give swag items.  My sister got a canvas bag from Uniqlo when they opened in Chicago.  When I joined my sister on a dental convention in Anaheim, I got a lot of dental stuff to bring home.

Enroll in loyalty programs:  My mother-in-law asked me to purchase some items at Bath & Body Works as Christmas presents, I’m planning to claim my 3 free products this weekend.  At Walgreens, my online purchases for my friends earned me Walgreens cash, which my husband happily spend in-store.  Head to the store you normally frequent, check if they have loyalty programs and join.

Starbucks for Life

Every year during the Christmas season, Starbucks usually launch their Starbucks For Life game.  As usual, with my luck on raffle and game prizes, I’m not expecting anything.  This year, the game will end on January 4.  The good thing about this game is you can actually play it without purchasing anything.  You just need to scroll down towards the bottom on the fine print to get a game play.

So far, I’ve won 50 stars and a lot of missing one item for each of the categories.  Last year, I won the Christmas card set and some stars.  Should I hope for something and be disappointed or be positive and claim that I will win?
