Legitimate Freebies

June 2, 2014 Free Stuff

Many online freebie offers, especially those who offer to mail you a free t-shirt, free mug, free gadget, free memory stick or free magazine, are usually not what they seem to be. If you are a student who fills up a request form for a free memory stick, what would you expect to receive? Most likely you will receive lots of marketing spam or CPA offers about student loan, student scholarship, weight loss, acne treatment, or dating…

Sometimes, intangible freebie offers are more likely to be legitimate, e.g. free online service, free web hosting, free pc game, free eBook, or free online storage, and etc.
