Man, there’s nothing better than free stuff. Like when you’re walking through a mall’s food court and an employee offers you a bite-sized morsel of bourbon chicken impaled on a toothpick?
Always take the bite-sized morsel of bourbon chicken. Always. Every single time. You don’t even have to be hungry. Right?
The point is, we all love free stuff. But not all free stuff is worth loving.
After extensive research, our crack staff of freebie-ologists have put together this sweet list of quality freebies for you. Only the finest freebies are allowed in this list. From coffee to coconut oil to diapers, here’s the ultimate list of our favorite free stuff online.
Free Pancakes, anyone?
Sign up for MyHop (that’s IHOP’s loyalty program) to get a free stack of pancakes. Once you create your account, you’ll get an email with your coupon.
A few tips: Be patient for the email; we received it several hours after signing up. Also take note of the expiration date, which was two weeks out for us.
Get a Free $83 For Playing Solitaire
Lots of us already play Solitaire on our phones for fun or just to pass the time. Want to see if you can win money at it?
There’s a free iPhone app called Solitaire Cash that lets you play for real money. You could get paid up to $83 per win.
You might be thinking: There’s got to be a catch. This is definitely one of those spammy apps, right?
Wrong. There really isn’t a catch. Sure, you can pay to play in some higher-stakes tournaments, but there’s no pressure. And, in fact, there aren’t even any annoying ads.
With each game, you’ll battle it out against at least five other players. Everyone gets the same deck, so winning is totally a matter of skill. The top three players who solve the deck fastest can win real money — anywhere from $1 to $83.
Over on the App Store, it has over a million downloads and more than 15,000 ratings, averaging 4.7 stars (out of 5).
To get started, just download the free app and start playing your first game immediately.
Free Bagel and Shmear
Welcome to the Shmear Society! OK, that sounds a little weird, but Einstein Bros. Bagels has a pretty legit rewards program. When you sign up, you’ll get a free bagel and shmear (or cream cheese).
Plus, you’ll start earning points — two points for every $1 — good for more freebies. It’s super easy to join, and who doesn’t need a good carb kick?
Free $225 in Cash
If we told you that you could get paid to watch videos on your computer, you’d probably laugh.
It’s too good to be true, right?
A website called InboxDollars will pay you to watch short video clips online. One minute you might watch someone bake brownies and the next you might get the latest updates on Kardashian drama.
All you have to do is choose which videos you want to watch and answer a few quick questions about them afterward. Brands pay InboxDollars to get these videos in front of viewers, and it passes a cut onto you.
InboxDollars won’t make you rich, but it’s possible to get up to $225 per month watching these videos. It’s already paid its users more than $200 million.
Enter your email address here and you’ll immediately get a $5 bonus to get you started.
