Welcome to “How to get freebies”, your complete guide to getting free gifts and
freebies from sites online. Firstly I would like to thank you for reading this ebook
and hope you find it informative and easy to understand.
What’s this ebook all about?
Most internet users will have surely seen adverts like “Get a free PS3” splashed
over the internet and dismissed them as a scam. Mostly these websites are, but
some are not. In this guide we will explain the economics behind the freebie
sites, provide proof that they work, and much more.
Also included is a special feature on how to get referrals, which is the hardest
part in the freebie process. To get started please continue to read this guide, and
within minutes you could start getting freebies.
What freebies can I get using this ebook?
You can get almost anything, most consumer items are available. Games
consoles, mobiles, HDTV’s, cash, Ipods, Jewellery and other MP3’s. You can
decide what free gift you get.

~How the free gift sites work~
Freebie sites ship thousands of products each year, but how do they continue to
afford this and how can you really get your very own freebies? This section
details how the legitimate freebie site makes a profit.
The freebie process
To get your free gifts most freebie sites require you to
• Create an account at the freebie site
• Complete an advertisers offer (sometimes free)
• Refer a required number of friends (Referrals)
What is a referral?
A referral is someone who you send to the freebie site, who then completes an
offer. Once you have created an account at the freebie site you will be given a
personal link. Give this link to family and friends and if they sign up via your link
they will count as a referral for you.
How can they afford to pay for the free gifts?
Freebie sites are paid by the advertisers to send them new customers. When you
complete your offer, the freebie site receives around £20-£30. The advertisers
are happy because you are trying out their products. For every referral that
completes an offer, the advertisers pay the site. Once you have the required
referrals, the freebie site will send you your free gift and still make a tidy profit.
Look at the diagram:
1: You create an account with the
2: You complete an advertiser’s offer.
3: Your referrals also sign up to the
freebie site and complete an advertiser’s
offer. The advertiser then pays the
freebie site for all the customers they
have received (you and your referrals).
4. The freebie site then sends you your
free gift free of charge, and still makes a
small profit from your order. Your
referrals can then refer friends so they
can also get free gifts.
- 5 -
How do the freebie sites make a larger profit?
When people receive their free gifts, the site only makes a small profit. There are
other ways the sites make a larger profit:
• Someone signs up, completes an offer but cannot get all their referrals (a
certain number of referrals are needed to obtain a free gift).
• Someone signs up, completes an offer but forgets about the site.
• Someone signs up and breaks the rules.
In each of these three cases the member will not receive a free gift, and the site
will make a lot of money.
Look at the diagram:
Customer 1 got their free gift from the site, they
did everything correctly and followed the rules.
Customer 2 completed their offer but did not get
the required number of referrals. So they did not
get their chosen freebie.
Customer 3 tried to scam the site, and got
banned, they will not get a freebie.
The moral of the story: Be customer 1, don’t try
and scam the freebie site, you will be caught. Do
everything correctly and keep to the rules, you
will get your freebies. For more details on not
breaking the rules, see our step by step guide.

~Free gift proof~
What I’ve received?
I myself have received a free Xbox 360 + games + accessories, an ipod, and
multiple payments through Paypal. Here are some pictures of my gifts.
There are thousands of people on the internet who have also received free gifts.
Below is a compilation of some links, articles and videos, in which you will see
proof that you can really get free gifts online. These are from individuals like
yourself and larger companies.
• Geek.com_article written in 2004 about free ipods. A great resource from
when the idea was just taking off.
• NBC_7_News including quotes from members who got their free gifts.
• Engadget_report talks about the idea behind freebies online.
As well as articles there have been many TV clips, reports and reviews, here are
just some of them.
• BBC_report (download) or watch it at youtube)
Here’s a few freebie forums, where the aim is to discuss freebie sites and the
ideas around them.

~Step by step guide~
Follow these steps to get your free gift…
Step 1: Registering for your freebie
First choose your site from the site review section, page 12,13 and 14
Just follow the link and sign up for an account. Enter your real details, so they
can send you your freebie when they are required to. Do not enter fake details;
you risk not getting your free gifts from these sites. Don’t worry, all the info you
enter is totally safe and secure.
When signing up. Remember to follow these rules:
• Use your real email and information.
• Only one account per household
• Don’t sign up to the same freebie site twice
• Don’t use a public computer (internet café, university, library) if you do the
site may think you have multiple accounts and ban you.
• Don’t use a proxy website or service this includes AOL. Proxy websites
mask your real computer address. Internet explorer works the best.
• Always read the Site Terms of service carefully, so you know exactly what
to do and not to do.
Step 2: Completing an advertisers offer
For recommended offers please read our offer section further into the ebook.
Note: You will have to earn 1 full credit over all, this may mean completing 2 half
credit offers. Most offers are full credit though.
Don’t worry about this step, I have completed offers and never paid a lot of
money to complete them. Completing offers can be fun if you choose the right
offer for you. You may even find a product you really like. Please don’t skip this
step, you are required to complete it to get your freebies. Once logged in, you
will find an offers page on the free gift website, go to it now. You will see that not
all offers are free, but most are. I prefer free trials of products. Choose an offer
which appeals most to you. Try and find a free one, so you will not have to pay!
Read the requirements of completing the offer, so you understand what you have
to do to get credit, and also what you are committed to.
When completing an offer, remember to follow these rules:
- 9 -
• Keep track of the offers you’ve done, for example like in a spreadsheet. Never
complete the same offer twice, even on two different referral websites.
• Read all the terms and conditions of the offer you wish to do.
• Keep ALL confirmations that you have completed the offer, like screenshots
and emails. If you do not get credit you may have to submit these for manual
All offers are different, some may cost money, some will not. Please follow our
offer guide to make sure you find the best offer possible.
Step 3: Refer your friends
After completing your offer you will need to refer a certain number of friends so
the freebie site will send you your free gift. When in your account at the free gift
site you will find a page with your referral link on it. Any one who signs up
through that link and completes an offer, counts as one of your referrals. By
doing the same process your referrals can also get freebies. Remember there
are loads of ways to get referrals. Please do not spam, you will not get your
freebie if you do. If someone reports you, you will be banned from the freebie site
and will never get your freebies.
Always give your friends your unique referral link
Here are just some of the ways to get referrals:
Tell your friends: Some of your friends/co-workers/ family/ relatives may be
interested in signing up to get a free gift of their own. But remember, don’t let
them sign up on the same computer or network as you.
Advertise your link: Do you have a website, a blog, or a myspace, add your link.
These are great places for posting your referral link. Be careful when posting on
forums, it may be classed as spam, if it is you will be banned.
Trade referrals: Take a look at:
• Freeipodguide.com/forums &
Some people will be interested in trading referrals. Look around and join the
community. These forums are very friendly, and members will welcome you, and
help get you started.
Remember to tell your referrals exactly how the freebie process works, and any
one who is open minded to the idea, will be interested. If they need convincing
you can always send them to the proof websites we mention in our guide.

~How to get referrals for your freebies~
Once you’ve completed your offer, you will have to get your referrals to obtain
your free gifts. Read our guide below for tips on how to get referrals
Freebie sites require you (after completing your offer) to refer friends to the site.
Your friends can also get free gifts like you. You will have to give people a
special link, which can be found on your account pages. If they sign up via this
link they will count as a referral.
Getting referrals can be the hardest part of the freebie process, but stick with it
and give it patience and perseverance. It may take a quite a while but remember
you are aiming for totally free gifts that could be worth hundreds of pounds.
8 hottest tips to getting referrals
(Only here at how to get freebies)
Tell your Friends…
This tip is much overlooked. And was the original idea to getting freebies.
Your friends may seem sceptical about “getting free gifts” but after you have
started receiving your freebies or show them real proof, they will jump at the idea.
Remember to offer them your personal referral link. Don’t forget to remind them
to follow the rules, check out our brief freebie rules or our step by step guide or
our freebie FAQ’s section.
Use a domain…
Sometimes people don’t want to visit your personal referral code, (e.g.
www.apple.real-incentives.com/?referral=355) by buying a domain you can
shorten this to something like www.myfreexbox360.co.uk which you can set up to
direct to your referral link.
You can choose two paths when choosing a domain. The two options are free or
paying for a domain, of course paying for one gets a quality domain, but a
downside is it will cost you money. 1&1.co.uk sell .co.uk domains for £1.99 a
year. Network solutions can check multiple domains at a time but I would
recommend you buy from 1&1 once you’ve found one.
You can also choose to use a free domain service. Disadvantages are that they
usually include popup adverts and are sometimes hard to use and unreliable. .tk
and cjb.net are two of the most used free domain services.
- 11 -
Advertise your referral link…
Do you have a website? Or a blog? Add your referral link, and see how many
sign ups you can get. Explain the concept to them. Try adding posters around
your neighbourhood explaining how to “get freebies online” or to be more specific
“get a free playstation 3” if that’s your chosen gift and add your referral link.
Did you know you can get 250 free business cards from vistaprint? You can use
it to advertise your referral site. You will have to pay postage, but it can be a
great marketing technique. It is best to find a short domain that directs to your
referral link, because some people don’t want to type in a long web address with
a referral code.
MSN, AIM and other instant messengers…
Add your referral link to your screen name or say “I got a free xbox (insert your
chosen gift), ask me how”. Be creative! You may find people flocking to talk to
you, and keen to get their very own free gifts. Remember the more you are
online and the more contacts you have, the more possible sign ups.
Or you can try and create conversations with people and mention and try and
explain the freebie idea to them. Ask them if they want one and give them your
Advertise & trade…
Go to some of your favourite forums, and if it is not considered spamming, post a
thread there. Remember if you are reported for spamming you will not get your
freebies. Try adding a link in your forum signature, that’s where it mostly is
allowed. You might want to add a colourful banner to your forum signature, so it
is eye catching.
On some forums you can trade referrals, so you sign up to their site, if they sign
up to your site. But remember to read the rules of trading and the Terms &
Conditions of all freebie sites.
Two freebie forums
Do you have Myspace? Maybe you could send out a bulletin to your friends
including your referral link, or add a section about freebies to your page, so all
visitors to your page will see your link.
Also you could try making a myspace dedicated to referrals and add a lot of
people to your friends.
- 12 -
Think outside of the box and stay motivated. Remember the best ideas are the
ones that haven’t been thought of yet or only a few have tried. Keep trying and
you will succeed.
This tip applies to all of the above…
Complete your offer ASAP, so you can tell your referrals which offer you did,
what offers you would recommend and the ease with which you completed them.
They will appreciate this “one-2-one” help, and feel they may also like to get a
freebie. Remember to give them your referral link.

Do you have a question that you want answering? We’ve got the answers.
General freebie sites
Are all freebie sites legitimate?
No, not all sites are. But all sites featured in our guide have been checked and
send out their gifts to members like you. So there’s no need to worry if you stick
with these sites.
Which are the best freebie sites?
Again all sites in this guide would be recommended, but we would suggest you
use Real-incentives, which is a good site for beginners. For all sites we
recommend that you check out our sites section.
Freebie site registration
How do I register for a freebie site?
For more information check out the step by step guide, but in brief once you have
found a site, enter all CORRECT information and never sign up using a proxy, a
site that masks you computers address (this sometimes includes AOL). Always
access freebie sites on a personal computer and never let others log into their
accounts on your computer. If you access two or more accounts on one
computer on network they will be banned.
What happens if I sign up referred?
If you are referred it is exactly the same, you can also get your freebie by
completing the freebie process. We highly recommend being referred because if
you are signing up it may as well count towards someone else’s reward. If you
sign up un-referred you are just giving extra money to the freebie site.
Should I give my real information?
Yes, you should always sign up with correct information. Remember they need
your correct information to send you your freebie.
Can I sign up to the same site twice?
You can NEVER sign up to the same freebie site twice, you will be banned if you
do and you will never get your deserved freebies. Don’t let other people on your
network (I.e. in your house) sign up to the same freebie site. Signing up to the
same referral site will appear that you are trying to refer yourself, you will be
caught and banned.

Freebie site offers
What is an offer? Why do I have to complete one?
An offer is a trial or discount of an advertisers product. It may cost money to
complete an offer, some are free, some are around £10. When you complete an
offer the advertisers pay the freebie site around £20 pounds. This is how the
freebie site can afford your gift.
Can I do the same offer twice?
No, you should never do the same offer twice, this is the biggest reason people
never get there freebies from the freebie site. We recommend you keep track of
the offers you have completed in a document or a spreadsheet.
Which offers are the best?
Well it’s down to personal choice, always choose an offer you could be genuinely
interested in. Check out our offer section for reviews of the top offers, so you can
Should I read the terms and conditions?
Yes, you should and make a note of any important information that you may
need. Save a copy into a document and save it to your computer. Make sure you
understand what the offer requires and always enter the correct details when
signing up to an offer.
Can I just sign up and cancel?
No you cannot, you have to meet the offer specifications. If you do sign up and
cancel it may be classed as trying to scam the freebie site. You will be banned.
How long does it take to log that I have completed an offer on the freebie
It should state how long it will take on the freebie site. It can be instantly but It
can also be a couple of days.
Freebie site referrals
What is a referral?
A referral is someone who you send to the freebie site via your link. They must
complete an offer to count as a complete referral and count towards your gift.
Can I refer myself?
No you cannot, if you do you will be banned. Resulting in you never getting a

To receive freebies from your freebie site you must complete an advertisers offer.
This is how the freebie site affords to send out your free gifts. Here is a section
on how to stay wise with offers and what to look out for.
(Please note these offers are mostly UK only)
Top offers – (which ever offer you choose always check the terms and
conditions in case the offer has changed)
This offer is one of the best. It is a free (to your door) DVD rental service. The
Lovefilm trial is totally free with no obligations when cancelling. You can watch
great DVDs and you send them back when you’ve done.
This was the first ever offer I completed, and it was hassle free and easy.
Easy DVD rentals
Another DVD rental service, but this one is not free. Easy DVD is the cheapest
way in the UK to rent individual DVDs. To complete this offer you must sign up
to Easy DVD and purchase some credits. You can choose three packages of
which we would suggest the cheapest. £7.96 for 4 credits. Easy DVD accept
most major credit card companies for payment.
Unfortunately this offer costs money. For this offer you must deposit and bet £5.
- 19 -
Coral is an online betting service which means you do not have to download any
programs. Your wager will be matched up to £20 so when you bet £5, coral will
match it with a free equal bet.
Offers to watch out for…
Always be careful when signing up to offers, check the offer requirements and
understand what you are signing yourself up to. Some offers require monthly and
annual subscriptions, which can total to a large amount of your money. Stay
away from these offers unless you were already going to get the product
available. Some types of these offers include telephone and TV subscriptions,
credit cards, insurance, web hosting and membership to certain websites.
