I have gotten many many free things from the internet and it was almost always something that I would use. I do a survey site that I am a part of and they are always sending me stuff to try. One of the things I tried was a face scrubber and different types of pads to use with it. When it came out in the store I saw that for everything that they sent me would have costs over 35.00 and I got paid eight dollars for trying it and got to keep it all. I am also a member of a few freebie sites that I get several things from every month. However I do have a po box that I use for everything to get sent to and I have never had a site ask me for any real personal information.

well, thats really amazing that you got free stuff that was quite a worth..i have always been thinking of starting an account with freebie sites but felt insecure when they ask one's mobile no.'s..i mean, when the person is giving address, why phone no. and mobile no.?

Well, I don't know if that is worth all the hassle and trouble going through all these. We get online would definitely love to earn some extra money, but would it be worth the time and effort to go through all of them if those samples and freebies found out to be scams?

I never done that, and I heard that they will pay higher price for that. I want to try it too, but I also heard about some scams about that. I just in dilemma mode right now, should I or should I not to register or apply for it?
