    My mailbox was jam packed! I got the Miracle Whip, Ocean Spray Sparkling juice, Eucerin, $5 Bounty Coupon :0), Garnier Shampoo, and the Vista t-shirt (did not take 21 days for the cheap mailing). Can’t wait to see what else comes in next week!

  • Alison

    Crap, I just noticed you said to not use your personal phone number. I just filled out a bunch of requests for freebies and used my cell number. It’s the only number I have. What should I have used? And why shouldn’t we use our personal number? Will they telemarket?

    • Becky

      Some of them will… I use my real number only for sweepstakes.. .the rest I use either 208-555-6993 or 208-555-5555 🙂 Here are the notes from that first Freebie post:
      A few words of advice:

      * Create an email account for “freebies”. Use this email for freebies, and you won’t have to give our your personal email, and have your personal account spammed with the emails from all of these companies. I get over 200 emails a day from companies I’ve signed up to receive freebies from. I don’t want to have to sift through all of those when I’m looking for an important email from FabuLESSly Frugal!!
      * Don’t give out your personal phone number. And don’t give out anyone’s number by mistake. I use my actual area code, then 555-5555, so (208) 555-5555. Using the 555 insures it’s not someone’s actual number. Giving your phone number out to these websites authorizes them to call you. Even if you are on the National Do Not Call List. HOWEVER, if you are entering a Sweepstakes, it is important to give your real phone number, so they can notify you.
      * DO NOT GIVE OUT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. Ever! If you have to give them that kind of information then the Freebie is just not worth it. I won’t be posting any that ask for this info, but should you find a freebie, keep it in mind.
      * Samples take time. Your mailbox will start filling with wonderful freebies after about 4-6 weeks. Some can take up to six months. Don’t get upset with the company sending the freebie, be gracious, and try to say thanks! Also, after I sign up for a freebie, I try to forget about it, so I get a surprise each day in my mailbox 🙂

  • Danielle

    I’ve signed up for ocean spray 2 or 3 times within the last 3 months, and haven’t gotten any yet. Hopefully one will come soon!

  • Alison

    Thank you Becky! I’ll try that from now on. 🙂

  • Sherry

    Anyone else having problems with the Honey Nut Cheerios? It keeps saying invalid email but its my email.
