Let’s face it: free stuff is great! These days there are lots of online resources that enable you to get free products and services.
Just do a web search, and you’ll come up with tons of results for freebies. It’s a lot of information to sort through. I’ve researched some of the options and compiled the list below to help you narrow down the resources to get free products.
Good luck finding some great freebies to try!
Please note, this post is a compilation of resources, not an endorsement of these third-party sites. I have not worked with all of these sites.
Many networks are available that work with brands and consumers to provide free products for testing. Some of these require recipients to share their experiences with the products via social media.

Members (Influensters) unlock expert and lifestyle badges and earn an impact score that measures their social media presence. Surveys help match members with VoxBox campaigns for a good product fit. (I received my first VoxBox over the summer with several great products inside.)
