Look what came in the mail! Maybe it doesn't look like much to you, but I'm in the "free" business. Anything I can get for free is money in my pocket. It's like winning a contest without all the effort.
So, how do I do it? Mostly by watching Facebook and Twitter. As I see people post free samples, giveaways, contests and the like, I go enter. Usually you just have to like their page and enter your mailing info. It just takes minute. If that particular page posts too much for your liking, guess what? All you have to do is "unlike" them and then it's gone!
I figure if these companies want to spend their advertising money on postage instead of TV, then I sure as heck can help them out. I feel like I'm doing my civic duty as well. The Postal Service needs the business and I DVR everything to fast forward through the commercials. Everybody wins!
One of my favorite Facebook pages is MojoSavings (MojoSavings.com). They are prolific posters about really good freebies and contests. I'll share some of my other favorites when my next mailed freebie comes in. The mailman must think I'm crazy, but at least I get something besides bills. Don't forget to like my Facebook page. I share the really good freebies that I find there.
