Freebies are always welcome, aren’t they? Even when they aren’t really free – when the price is included in the other item that you buy – people normally fall for the ploy. In this day and age, we should get our hands on all the freebies that we can. Even the smallest of savings can make a difference in the long run. Here are some awesome freebies that you might be interested in.
Free video games
There are lots out there. If you have a PS3, go online to the PS Store and find free downloads. Many of them are demos, but you get to play them for no cost at all. Visit other web sites like PopCap Games, BigFishGames, and OnlineFlashGames for tons of other free software.
So you like to shop online? Who doesn’t? Try using online stores that offer free shipping, though. You can save hundreds of dollars in a year if you shop online a lot. Retailers like Blue Nile, Shopbop, and Zappos offer free shipping. Other big names offer free shipping for certain purchases as well.
I love the open source community! You can get so many useful programs without paying a cent. Try OpenOffice instead of Microsoft Office. AVG and Avast anti-virus work excellently – and they’re free. Picasa is great for photo editing. Just take a look around, and you’ll see that there is not much need to pay an arm and a leg for expensive software.
Free books, music, and movies
Free audiobooks, e-books, and music abound online. I am talking about work being offered for free – not downloaded illegally. You can also go to your local library and start using their resources. They probably have an extensive collection that will delight you to no end!
