I remember as a kid, my favorite store in the local mall was Hickory
Farms.  That's because they always had lots of free samples scattered
around the store.  If you're like me, you can't resist the urge to get
something for free.  The web is chock full of freebies, and FreeBitz
is a great place to find the best "free stuff" offers around.  
At FreeBitz you'll find hundreds of freebie offers in a dozen
categories, such as Business, Computers, Contests, Fun Stuff, Home,
Internet, Kid's Stuff, Multimedia, Pets, Software, and Webmasters.
You can get free fonts, mousepads, software, CD-ROMs, a myriad of
product samples, and lots more if you poke around.  Here a few tips
for navigating at FreeBitz:
 - If you're looking for something specific, use the SEARCH feature.
   I entered "recipes" and found 26 items - cool.
 - Try the DAILY SPOTLITES to see items just added to FreeBitz in the
   last day or two.  Some offers only last for a day (or less) because
   they're so popular.
 - Try the TOP FREEBIES area to see which offers have been most
   popular on the site, both by the number of page views, and by
   visitor voting. Right now the top offers are the FREE Schick Silk
   Effects + Razor, a FREE Internet Keyboard, and FREE Pearl Necklace.
 - Or use ADD FREEBIE to suggest a new freebie site if you've found
   one not already listed at FreeBitz.
Of course you've heard the saying "There's no such thing as a free
lunch". Most of the sites offering free stuff do ask you to give up
some personal information in exchange for the goodies.  Usually that's
a fair trade, but if a particular site asks for info you don't want to
divulge, skip it and try another.  Oh, and reading the privacy policy
at any site where you have to enter personal data is always a good
If you've gotten your fill of freebies, the only thing left to do is
go shopping.  But don't hit the cyberstores until you pay a visit to
DealOfDay first.  They've scoured the net to find the best deals,
bargains, discounts, and coupons to help you save big.  
Competition is fierce amongst online retailers, and many of them are
trying special promotions to earn your business and loyalty.  It's not
uncommon to find huge discounts, free shipping and other great deals
at online stores.  Here are some of the deals I saw today at
  - 70% discount on brand-name vitamins at
  - $10 off your $20 purchase at
  - Free Shipping with $25 Purchase at
  - $10 off your purchase of $10 or more at
  - 50% off Ink and Toner Cartridges at
  - $20 off your $50 purchase at
You won't find most of these specials deals if you visit the sites
directly.  Some require special discount codes or links that you can
find if you visit DealOfDay first.  You can search for deals on
specific items or browse 20 categories of the huge deal database at
DealOfDay.  If you're going to buy something, shopping online is
smart.  Getting a great deal is even smarter.
That's all for now, see you next time!  --Bob Rankin
