How to Get Cheap/Free Products


Today, I wanted to share some of my favorite ways to score great deals and free products.  These are the programs I consistently use and are all fairly quick and easy.

  1. DSW – DSW has a free rewards program that allows you to earn points for every $1 you spend and get $5 or $10 coupons throughout the year.  They also send a $5 or $10 coupon on your birthday.  They always have a huge section of clearance shoes and accessories and it’s usually pretty easy to find an item (or two!) for free or extremely cheap.  My best friend has gotten tons of shoes for either a penny or completely free.  Although it’s easier to find free items with a $10 coupon, the $5 ones are perfect for scoring smaller items like socks or clearance jewelry! You can sign up for the program here or in stores.
  2. Kohl’s – Kohl’s also has a free rewards program that allows you to earn points for every $1 spent and get $5 coupons for every 100 points.  They send $5 coupons for signing up and on birthdays.  Kohl’s has clearance and sale items year round and it’s usually pretty easy to find something close to or under $5.  The last time I earned a $5 coupon I put mine toward these leggings (mentioned in this post).  You can sign up for the program here or in stores.
  3. Target – Target just revamped their Cartwheel app and it’s better than ever!  Before the update, the app allowed you to get discounts on certain products by scanning the bar code on items or searching the app to see if they were on sale.  While the app still offers these discounts, it now allows you to earn points even if you purchase items that are not on sale.  For example, if I bought a mascara that wasn’t being offered at a discount on the app, I could still earn points from the purchase.  Once you reach 5000 points, you get an item for free.  Some of these items include free makeup, coffee, food, household products and more.  To sign up for the program, simply download the Target Cartwheel app and create an account.  Once you’re signed in, click on “Offers” to search or scan items.  When you’re ready to check out, click “Check Out” and it will bring up a bar code for the cashier to scan and you will start earning points!
  4. Coupon Blogs – Although coupon blogs are a little different than the programs above, they are a great way to learn about free products and deals.  I subscribe to Coupon Pro (mentioned in this post) and Krazy Coupon Lady and get emails every day about different freebies and discounts.  I sign up for at least one or two freebies a week and print coupons when I see a discount on an item I was already planning on buying.  My best friend introduced me to both of these sites and I have been hooked every since!  To subscribe to Coupon Pro click here and for Krazy Coupon Lady click here.

Do you know of any programs or blogs that offer deals or freebies?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. Such great advice! Getting something for free is the best feeling. I also love Shop Your Way rewards ( because they occasionally give you free “Surprise Points” to use towards merchandise at Sears or Kmart. A lot of times, the points can get you free stuff.

    I’m still trying to figure out Target’s Cartwheel App. I use it every time I shop there, but haven’t figured out the points and rewards feature quite yet. I have the app opened right now, and don’t see any points or a rewards section. I wonder if Android version has this feature yet? If not, hopefully it will soon!!
