Can you really get free stuff on Facebook?
While you may think Facebook is only for keeping up with friends and family, the reality is that Facebook is a great place to find freebies.
Most businesses and companies use the giant social networking platform to gain fans that they can turn into customers.
To do that, they give special deals, coupons, and freebies to people in exchange for “Likes”.
These are exclusive promotional coupons and discounts that you can not find anywhere else.
Plus, many of these companies also give special birthday freebies to their fans on their big day.
In most cases, to get the freebies, all you have to do is “Like” the company’s official Facebook page.
Finding freebies on Facebook
The easiest way to get free stuff on Facebook is to use the search function.
I would also recommend you create a separate Facebook account just for that reason if you do not want to clutter your personal account.
On that account, be sure to only enter the information you don’t mind these companies seeing. After all, they don’t just give you freebies because they like you so much! They use your information to, later on, advertise appropriate stuff to you.
Once you have the account set up, simply use the search box on the upper right of your Facebook page to find companies you want freebies from.
Let’s say, your dog eats Beneful dog food. When the search results are shown, simply click on Beneful and go to their page.
There, on the top-center of the page, you will find the “Become a fan” button which you can click on. Then the company will send you updates whenever they have special deals or are giving free samples away.
While you are there, be sure to check the page thoroughly as most of these companies will have a few tabs on their page, like “Freebies“, or say “Special Offers“. This is where you can get your hands on some free stuff.
Some of these companies may let you print out coupons right from that page, other times you may have to enter your email address to have the code emailed to you. Either way, you get your free item.
Example freebies on Facebook
To give you an idea what to expect and the kind of free stuff you can get through Facebook, I have gathered a few examples.
Keep in mind that most of these freebies and deals are time sensitive, so some may not be available by now. But they were at the time of writing this post.
Become a fan of Nivea on Facebook and get a free sample of Nivea lotion.
You have to fill out a short form. Only available while supplies last.
All you have to do is fill out a short form to get a free sample of Beneful Healthy Smile adult dog food
3. Skin Plumping Cream – Hado Labo Tokyo Skin Plumping Gel Cream
Click “Like” on their page and fill out the required form.
4. Free ZarBee’s Allergy ReliefShared
All you need to do is “Like” their page and fill out the sample request form.
Obviously, companies don’t just give out an unlimited number of these. After all, they use these free stuff giveaways as an advertising tool.
It helps them get the name of the brand or the product out there and have people talking about them. The end goal is to sell more of these products and make more money.
If they gave their products to everybody for free, that would put them out of business really quick. So they always give a limited number of their products out for free.
What does that mean for you?
You have to be quick.
Keep your eyes open.
Follow your favorite companies on social media, especially Facebook, so when they announce a new giveaway, you can grab yours quickly before they are all gone.
Becoming a fan of your favorite brands on Facebook, Twitter, and other major social media platform is a great way to score freebies that otherwise you would have never gotten.
The best part is that it’s free, you don’t have to trust a third-party site with your personal info as you are working directly with the company.
So, next time you come across a Facebook page belonging to a brand you like, be sure to Like it for a chance to get some exclusive Facebook freebies.
