Getting Started

If you are looking to start getting free stuff online, you may be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information that can be found on the search engines.  It can be difficult to determine which sites are the best ones to sign up for.  So, I’ve provided a simple guide to get you started on the right path.  It applies to most of the major, reputable freebie networks.  Please, read the whole guide before you start, so you know everything that you need to do.

Step 1: Choose the Gift You Want

No freebie network is likely to offer the same gifts as another network.  So, in order to choose the network you wish to use, you first need to decide which gift you would like to receive.  For instance, if you were looking for a Macbook Pro, you would want the Apple website listed below.  Likewise, if you want the new Xbox 360, you would look at the console network listed below.  Go ahead and choose one of the sites below, and then move on to step 2.

Apple Products          Sony Playstation3           Xbox360S/Nintendo Wii           HDTVs           Mobile Phones           More…

Step 2: Sign Up

Now that you’ve decided which website you want to sign up for, go ahead and do so.  You’ll need to give them your name, mailing address, and email.  Note that the mailing address is only used to mail you your gift, not to send you advertisements.  Likewise, the only times you will receive emails from the freebie network is when you first sign up, when one of your referrals completes an offer, or if you have a problem with your account.  So, do not, under any circumstances, give fake information. Doing so will prevent you from accessing your account, and could even get you banned.

Step 3: Verify Your Account

Once you’ve signed up for a freebie network, they will send you an email asking you to verify your account.  This email contains a link that you need to go to in order to use your account.  This email has a rather annoying tendency to end up in your spam/junk folders.  So, after a few minutes, if you don’t see the email in your inbox, check to see if it ended up blocked by your email provider.  Once you’ve found the email, click or copy the link into your web browser, and go to the webpage.

Step 4: Activate Your Free Gift

This is the most important step, and the one that drives most people away.  In order to be eligible for your gift, you must complete an offer from 1 of their advertisers.  These offers range from free 2 week trials to pay as you go poker games.  Expect to spend $0 to $30 on these offers.  Note that, however, you only have to do this once.  If your network allows it, you can receive multiple gifts, but only have to complete an offer for the first one.  This information is indicated in their terms of service.

Step 5: Gain Credits

Once you’ve completed your offer, the only thing standing between you and your free gifts are the number of people required to sign up.  These referrals need to both sign up under your referral link, as well as complete an offer of their own.  There are many ways to get people to sign up.  Facebook, Twitter, blog posts, or forums are all useful.  Use your imagination!!

Step 6: Order Your Gift

No w that you have the required number of referrals, simply place your order with your freebie network.  Then sit back, and wait for it to arrive.  Don’t feel like waiting?  Then go ahead, and start the process all over again.  If your chosen network allows multiple freebies start at step 5.  If they don’t, you’ll need to choose a new network, so go back to step one.

I hope this guide has been of some benefit to you.  If so, then enjoy the free stuff you’ll be getting.  If not, please, let me know what I can do to change the guide so that it is more helpful.  Thanks for reading, and good luck!
