You may not realize it, but you are probably passing up hundreds of dollars worth of freebies all because you failed to do one thing: ask. There are places you likely frequent on a regular basis that are handing out freebies every single day, but only to those who request them. Here are some of the best places to ask for freebies.


Doctor’s Office - If a doctor hands you a prescription, ask for a free sample. Drug companies give doctors lots of freebies to hand out. You may get a month or two worth of free medicine without having to stop by the pharmacy.


Cosmetics Counters - Next time you’re passing through the cosmetics counters at your favorite department store, ask for some freebies. This is especially useful if there’s a product you want to try, but you’d rather get a sample before spending serious cash on it. Cosmetics companies know lots of people want to try before they buy, which is why getting freebies is fairly common here.


Restaurants or Ice Cream Shops - See something on the menu you’re not quite sure about? Ask if you can try it. A little taste may be enough to satisfy your craving so there’s no need to order a full serving.


The Freecycle Network - Freecycle is a great place to score lots of freebies. The Freecycle Network is made up of 4,793 groups with more than seven million members around the world who simply want to keep stuff out of landfills. Simply post what you’d like for free and another member of the group may have it. Of course, it’s a good idea to give back, so make sure you hand out free stuff to others when you can.


Your Hotel - When you’re on vacation, ask your hotel if they have any freebies. You may get an upgrade, free food or a discount just for asking. Hotels typically aim to please, and a small freebie can be enough to make guests very happy.

Why not just go from place to place eating samples? Maybe steal the saltines and ketchup from the condiments bar? What is this, advice for bums?

You can save on drug cost with drug discount card. NeedyMeds, a national nonprofit, has a free drug discount card that's accepted at 60,000 pharmacies. The average savings is nearly 50%. It's good for prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs and medical supplies (when written as a prescription), and pet prescription drugs purchased at a pharmacy. The card is free and there's no registration process. Anyone can use the card regardless of income, age, residency, or insurance status. You can learn more and download a card from our website - www.needymeds.org.

There's also a list of drug discount coupons and information on patient assistance programs.
