Strange Travel Tip: How to Get Something for Nothing

Discounts are great, but free stuff is even better.  Here are a few ways to get something for free:

Got a birthday? Get a free meal, free ice cream, movie tickets, and more just for celebrating the day you were born. You’ll find a big list of things you can get for free on your birthday at

Sign up for samples. From coffee to recipe books to vitamins, find all kinds of samples and other free promotional items at

If you’re in the U.S., find plenty of free things in your town by going to, finding your city or region, and then clicking on “free” under the “for sale” header. In the “free” section of the D.C. Craigslist today, there’s a stainless steel grill, lots of furniture, fabric, a 40” T.V., and a lot more.

From restaurant gift cards to photo flip books, is a catch-all for free stuff on the web. Take your pick -- but do read the fine print before signing up for anything.

Have a great Halloween!
