Free stuff I got in 2011

January 2nd, 2012 at 03:54 pm

Since I am an inveterate list-maker (it would likely take years of therapy to understand why), here is my list of stuff I got for free in 2011, via online survey product testing, online forums and other sources.

6-pak of flavored Propel water
4 rolls toilet paper
Box of Kleenex
3 rolls Charmin Extra Strong
1 tube of Tomís of Maine toothpaste
About a half dozen free Teva-Neuroscience dinners plus free lip balm, sunscreen, pens, tote bags
22 free cans of Halo cat food
3 cases (24 bottles each) of bottled water with returnable deposits (via my town, after Hurricane Irene)
4 rolls of Angel Soft toilet paper, plus 10 $2 off coupons (She Speaks)
Facial cleanser, moisture tint lotion with SPF, lip balm and eyebrow pencil
2 boxes kitchen garbage bags (40 bags total)
$35 ($15, $15 and $5) in Amazon gift cards (credit card forum,) Redeemd $12 for 1 yr sub. To Kiplingerís, redeemed $21 for Amazon.com hand mixer. Balance $2.
Another $40 in Amazon gift cards from same forum. Redeemed with $2 balance above for a pair of navy slip-on Grasshopper sneakers and 2 packets of soybean vegetable seeds!

    Surveys and product samples: Myview, Toluna, Pinecone, Global Test Market, I Say and Opinion Outpost. It's through the online surveys that you very occasionally may get invited (if you qualify) to participate in an ongoing forum on a given subject, which is where you'd get the Amazon gift cards. The Teva Nueuroscience dinners are free for people who have MS and the free Masonicares dinner/lectures are a local thing in my area I often see in the paper. The cat food, umm, was an online coupon I discovered I could continuously print, and so I did.
