Question: Why is there no cost? There have to be some strings attached.
Answer: Easy. Companies are looking to drum up interest in their products and services.
Question: Will it take me all day to complete the necessary forms?
Answer: Roboform (which is absolutely free) will simplify things and make the process smooth and effortless.
Question: Why is this not available to those in Canada (or any other countries)?
Answer: Since sweepstakes are seen as deceptive in many cases, there are a ton of regulations in place. The United Kingdom, Canada and individual states have their own regulations as far as sweepstakes go, which means that things may be quite different depending on the location of the entrant. For instance, Canada and many countries in Europe require people to solve a math problem, which means that skill is involved. This prevents it from being seen as a form of gambling.
Unfortunately, this is the category that samples and freebies tend to fall in.
Question: I filled out tons of forms why didn’t I receive anything?
Answer: It is crucial that you fill out each form correctly.
It is also important to note that some companies only offer a limited number of freebies, even if this is not specified.
There are also some who are nothing but scammers. They are only looking to gather your information so they can sell it to others. This is why I avoid listed freebies that are on sites that have free hosting, like Geocities.
Question: Why are there pop-up ads on your site?
Answer: One of them is a contest. The other notifies you of freebies and contests that are time sensitive.
Question: Can I sign up for your newsletter without receiving a barrage of spam?
Answer: Sign up for a free email from Yahoo or Hotmail. You can use this for all of the freebies without worrying about your real account being compromised.
Question: What do you do with the email addresses after they are provided?
Answer: Nothing. It is kept in a database that only I have access to. The only thing I use it for is to send the Just Free Stuff newsletter.
Questions: Are there advertisements on your site?
Answer: Absolutely not!
Question: I signed up. Why haven’t I received a newsletter?
Answer: We use a double opt-in process. This means that you will receive a confirmation after signing up. You have to click the link in that message to confirm your interest.
If you are having issues after doing this, get in contact with me.
Question: How do I unsubscribe or change the email address I use?
Answer: Each newsletter has links that allow you to unsubscribe and update your profile, and yes that actually work. If you have any trouble, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will take care of it for you.
Question: What do I do if I have more questions?
Answer: You have my email address. Put it to good use.
