Do you actually search for discount/ coupons or freebies online?

Since I am starting my own business, I have to basically maintain a frugal life in every way to sustain my business. I start to search for some coupons or freebies or even discount online and compare different prices online. I do"register" for some lucky draw for freebies too, hoping that I don't have to spend a penny *laughs*. What about you? What's the coolest thing that you have got?

hello wondericequeen i will take all of the coupons and freebies that i use that i can get my hands on. lol i have a family of four and i have to stretch every penny that i have when i go do any kind of shopping for us. and i get all kinds of freebies everyday that i get from an email from either marysfreebies and also jim and jackie's freebie newsletter. sometimes i will not get the marysfreebies newletter each day, but i do recieve it several times a week. and i guess that the best coupon that i have recieved before would have to be the Nutella coupon that i recieved awhile back, they sent me two free coupons and i kept one of them and gave my sister-in-law the other free coupon. i also recieve loads of coupons for dog food. i just recently recieved a coupon in the mail for $5.00 a bag of IAMS dog food. whoo hoo! it doesn't expire until the end of June this year, so i have plenty of time left to use the coupon for the dog food. and i guess that the best freebie i have ever recieved in the mail before has been things like deodorant, microwave popcorn, coffee and cereal. take care and have a beautiful day today!

I look for freebies everyday, and coupons every time I shop. I have a ton of great freebie sites bookmarked... so I go look everyday to see if there is anything that I would like, available. It's pretty fun :) They're not usually full-size products, but still cool. I get shampoos and conditioners, magazines, perfumes, information books, lotions, snacks (like bars, cookies, cereal or popcorn), trash bags, anti-aging stuff, pain relievers, laundry detergent, makeup... all kinds of stuff. Nothing on its own will add up to much (unless you win something from drawings, or something), but when everything adds up, it's a lot of money. I've had things arrive that I had wanted to try before, but never got the chance to buy it or just never wanted to spend the money (just in case I didn't like it). Some of these I'm glad I never bought the product, and others I'm glad I got the sample because I love it. So anyway... I have a bunch of freebie sites that I could give to you, if you wanted. A few of them are the best ones, so I check those everyday, and others aren't as good, so I check them once in a while. These sites also have a good amount of coupons, too :) *Freebies tend to take a while to arrive, but if you keep ordering freebies, in about a month you'll have different freebies coming in almost everyday. Tell me if you want me to message you with the links :)

I am not living in the states, so I wonder if the freebies or coupons would be applicable to me. But you sounded like having much fun *smiles*. That's the good part!

Well, there aren't as many freebies for people outside the U.S., but I at least know of one site that has some freebies for other places. I'll send that one to you, and if I find any more, I'll send those too :)

I do search sometimes, and often I find some good things online which will help me to save money. I don't spend all of my time searching though, as I know that I can make more money by going on here and Neobux than I could searching for other things, so I only do it when I have a spare few minutes and have nothing better that I could be doing.

I agree! I think we cannot be obsessed about searching for those online, otherwise, we are just wasting time!

Yea sometimes I do think it's a waste of time too, but if I see it accidentally, I would try!

Sure, I like to search for such kind of information. In fact I have joined some groups about it so that I will learn more this information. I know a good website called 51saving, it is very nice and I have got some products free of charge there. Perhaps you will find it interesting. Usually I get the cosmetic samples. I love China
