First, there's Swaggable. You sign up, browse products and click "want" on things you'd be interested in trying. Once they have products that you might be interested in, they send you an invitation to try the product. All they require is that you give your feedback on the samples.
Next, I want to talk about another of those work-from-home sites. This one is called EarningStation. You watch videos, take surveys, etc and get "Station Dollars". You can trade these in for gift cards and other rewards. This one doesn't pay cash. But aren't gift cards almost as good? Plus they have coupons you can print (it seems you do NOT get Station Dollars for that, but I'm not 100% sure yet).
And finally, here's a list of freebies you can get on/near your birthday. Some require you to sign up to their newsletter. Others, you just go into a location and show ID to prove it's your birthday. Not all places may be available in all areas, but this is still quite the extensive list!
Okay, that's it for now. Until next time.....
