Newbies Guide To FreebieList.com

Welcome to FreebieList.com. We source all the latest free products, services, software and giveaways in the UK to save you time and money. Request freebies here and products will begin dropping through your letterbox on a regular basis – probably much to the dissatisfaction of your postie! Before you get started, we recommend you read these FAQs, especially if you are brand new to our website.

Just some reassurance for you: at FreebieList.com we are 100% family friendly, so safety and security is our number one priority. Everything you’ll find has been checked beforehand to ensure it’s legitimate, and we never send out unsolicited e-mail to visitors. You don’t even require an e-mail address and password before entry. Just surf right in!

Free stuff?! What’s the catch?

Companies give out complimentary goodies to attract consumers to their brand. But is there a catch? After all, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, right? Actually, there is a catch but it’s a fairly innocuous one. To claim something for nothing, you usually have to opt-in to an e-mail mailing list. And to receive a physical freebie, you’ll have to submit your home address to take delivery of the item. At FreebieList.com, we only include legitimate free stuff from companies who treat privacy seriously. Our speciality is rooting out the truly worthwhile offers.

Are your freebies totally free?

Our listings are zero-cost in the vast majority of cases. If there is a particularly attractive offer with a postage fee or small purchase requirement, we may include it, but with a clear label so you know what to expect. While we do list some trial offers that are time-limited, these are at no cost and allow you to cancel during the trial period.

Do I need to worry about spam?

We do not deal in spam (junk-mail) here at FreebieList.com. To put a definition on the term, spam is unsolicited – and none of the sites we list should send you unsolicited e-mail. For some giveaways and competitions, you may need to enter your e-mail address and opt-in to receive promotional newsletters. In these cases, you may find yourself receiving messages from the companies you request from. You can unsubscribe from these mailings at any time. Top tip: It is worth setting up a secondary e-mail address to prevent your primary inbox from becoming too cluttered.

How do I request free samples?

To obtain product samples, browse through our website categories to find items that interest you. Once you have found something of interest, click the link to be directed to the external offer page. From here, all you have to do is complete a short online form. Links to any relevant privacy policies and terms and conditions are provided on the external offer page. Be sure to read these before applying for any offers.

How long will I have to wait?

It depends. Some companies begin sending out their samples within a few weeks, but the norm is within 28 days. On occasions you may have to wait a bit longer. We have known some samples to arrive within 1 week!

My friend received their sample… but I never!

On occasions, a sample you’ve requested may never arrive, even when your friends have received theirs. Companies offering free samples over the Internet regularly underestimate the demand for their products. As a result, they tend to run out of freebies very quickly. At FreebieList.com, if we don’t receive a freebie, then the offer is removed fairly rapidly to avoid any disappointment. In any case, requesting freebies early will ensure you get first pick. Keep trying! There’s plenty freebies to choose from and even expired samples will usually become available in the near future.

Can you send me samples for an event?

Can you send me samples of [insert item name here]? Unfortunately, since we only review and list samples from manufacturers, we have no freebies to send to you direct. If you’re organising an event, it is a good idea to get in touch with many of the large cosmetic, health and beauty companies. Some of them may be able to send you many thousands, depending on the nature of your request.

How can I receive the latest updates?

Many of the real-life tangible items available at FreebieList.com are often short-lived and get snapped up quickly. Demand for samples is extremely high and companies with limited stock levels soon run out. It is worth keeping a close eye on this page as we constantly update as new offers become available. We recommend you subscribe to our newsletter to get a roundup of the latest listings on a regular basis. Also, don’t forget to follow us on our social media pages.

Other than the above, there really isn’t any more you need to know at this stage. If you have any comments or suggestions about FreebieList.com, feel free to contact us.
