Tips For Signing Up For FREEBIES

Getting FREE stuff in the mail is the best but I want to make sure that you are getting just that...totally FREE stuff. Here are a few tips to when signing up for freebies:

1. NEVER sign up for a freebie that requires you to give your credit card information. Any legitimate free offer will not ask for this.

2. You may want to create a separate email to use when signing up for freebies so your regular email doesn't get slammed. You can create a free account with google, yahoo, aol, etc...

3. Get in early- most freebies are of limited supply and once an offer is passed around the blogosphere, it goes fast!

4. Use legitimate sources to sign up for freebies, for instance - the company's own website, facebook, or twitter. Here are some great places to find freebies:
*My Baton Rouge Mommy - check back often for the best free offers available!
* free samples
* - sign up now to start receiving free samples, full sized items and high-value coupons
