There are a lot of sites you may come across that will offer free stuff. It may be hard to tell which ones are legit and which ones are not. Most of us are put off by the ‘catch’ many sites put in place for you to get free stuff. For example, they may ask you to start their free trial, download their app, invite x number of friends, register your account, or more.

Moreover, you may come across sites that offer stuff that you don’t really need, or you already have in plenty—for example, a sticker to your car, pens, or fridge magnets.

There are companies and sites out there that offer legit free stuff. You will find useful stuff on these platforms. For example, you can get gift cards, gas cards, beauty products, and more. We have compiled a list of companies and sites that seek to promote their products and get regular business from potential customers.

1. Swagbucks

Swagbucks is a platform that rewards your account with points for doing various activities. This includes doing online searches, taking surveys, watching videos, shopping, and more. Some of these are activities that you take part in often, if not daily. You need to shop from a retailer that partners with Swagbucks to earn points.

Once you earn enough Swagbucks points, you can redeem them for gift cards in major stores like Walmart, Amazon, Target, and more. You have hundreds of options when it comes to stores that offer gift cards for Swagbuck points.

Alternatively, you can redeem your points for cash rewards. Swagbucks will send the cash to your PayPal account. This platform has an age limit. You have to be 13 years or older to join and earn free stuff.

2. Walmart

The giant retailer also offers free stuff. Walmart has free stuff to give under its Walmart Sample Box Page Program. This program is slightly different from the free site programs. You will start with a free sign up to the program.

Walmart will give you your first sample box immediately. After that, they will send a new sample box every three months. You will only need to pay for the box’s shipping. Walmart charges a flat fee of $5 for shipping the box.

The box contains an assortment of items. You get to decide which product category you want. For example, you can choose the Beauty Box to get different beauty products or the Baby Box for different baby products.

3. Target

Target also offers free stuff and samples. Their program is called the Target Sample Box. It is close but different from the Walmart Sample Box. Target’s Sample is not entirely free, like the Walmarts Sample Box.

However, these samples are available in very good deals. For example, you will get products worth between $25 to $30 for as low as $5 to $15. This program may be almost as equal as Walmart’s Sample Box because they offer free shipping for their products.

Target’s sample boxes usually deal with beauty products. They include makeup, hair care, and skincare products. This can be an advantage or limitation, depending on what you are interested in.

Target offers the beauty box every month, and it usually contains about 5 to 7 products.

4. InboxDollars

InboxDollars is similar to Swagbucks in how it works. They also offer points for participating in various activities. You can earn dollars from watching videos, downloading apps, taking surveys, playing video games, and more. Their surveys usually pay between $0.50 and $5. However, some pay around $10 to $20.

These dollars accumulate as you do more activities and get to redeem them for retail gift cards, Visa gift cards, or ask them to mail a physical check. The minimum amount you can redeem is $30.

You can use these gift cards to get free stuff at various popular stores. It is free to sign up on InboxDollars, and they will credit $5 to your account immediately you sign up.

For some platforms, it is an added advantage to sign up on the email list as you will get access to exclusive deals, or personalized deals like the ones Everyday Mom Sampling Club offers.
