Top Tips for New Freebie Hunters

 

Many people just love freebies be it breaking world records in order to get a lifetime supply of nuggets or joining a queue of 1,000 people for 2 hours to get a Krispy Kreme doughnut free of charge.  These people can do anything possible to get things free of charge.

 

However, in order to make the most of freebies, there are some rules you should follow. This article is going to help you learn about some of the most important rules that will help you become a good free stuff hunter.

 

Never Expect Too Much

It is rare to get full-sized freebies as many businesses deliver free products either in small envelopes or tiny sachets. The main goal is to try the product and see whether or not you would like to buy the product in future. This will help you avoid wasting your hard earned money on products that you may not enjoy.

 

Another thing to remember is that you will not always get each and every freebie you apply for. Even if you claim every free sample going, it is very likely that you will only get 70 per cent of them. Is your incoming mail a little sparse? If so, don’t quit on your journey to become a freebie hunter.

 

Keep applying for freebies despite this and I can assure you that you will start receiving so many freebies. Checking the T&Cs before applying for a freebie will help you ensure that you only apply for freebies worth your time. This is because of the fact that T&Cs will help you know how big the product will be and the number of samples available.

 

You Will Only Get If You Ask

To get UK free stuff, you have to write letters or send an email asking whether they have free samples. There are people who have received huge boxes of free items or money-off vouchers from businesses when they contacted these businesses telling them that they enjoy their products. If you don’t like something, don’t lie. Keep in mind that some companies like giving out replacement freebies and an extra if their products are not up to scratch.

 

Never Feel Guilty

I know that some people may pity their favourite companies thinking that these companies are spending millions on freebies. However, the truth of the matter is that the company will not spend a lot on sending you only a few freebies. In fact, your favourite company is benefiting from this since each sample package sent out is more likely to help them get one new customer. If your favourite company sends you a free product and you like it, you are more likely to buy it again.

 

Create a Second Email Address

Creating a second email address is very important for any freebie hunter out there. This is because of the fact that doing so will help you avoid receiving spam mail. You should also set up second social media accounts and phone numbers to avoid unwanted calls and for the same reason as setting up a second email address.

 

If it sounds too good to Be True, it probably is

Most of the transaction have both an upside and downside but we forget the downside when we are given a product free of charge and we end up valuing a free product more than what it is worth.

 

As such, we end up ignoring our friend, commonsense because we assume that we have received a quality product for free. Some companies have realized this and can sell your soul in exchange for a tiny sample. Therefore, it is good to be careful as a freebie hunter to know what you are getting.

 

Ensure that the free product sounds genuine (no business can offer you a £1,000 gift voucher free of charge for nothing). Also, remember to read the T&Cs to fully understand what you are signing up for.
