If you’re here, it’s safe to guess that “free” is one of your favorite words.
If you’re like most people and love getting free stuff, freebies at Reddit are going to appeal to you.
But what is Reddit?
In Reddit’s own words: it is “home to thousands of communities, endless conversation, and authentic human connection. Whether you’re into breaking news, sports, TV fan theories, or a never-ending stream of the internet’s cutest animals, there’s a community on Reddit.com for you.”
It’s basically a huge forum (it’s one of the top 10 most popular sites on the planet, by the way) divided into hundreds of thousands of sub-forums – known as “subreddits” – that cover almost any topic you can think of.
Join InboxDollars for free. InboxDollars pays you to watch videos, search, shop, take surveys, and more. They have paid out $57 Million so far!
And if there is no subreddit on a topic you like you can start one on your own.
What about the freebies?
At Reddit Freebies, you’ll find free stuff galore.
Absolutely layers and layers of free stuff.
Most offerings include other people’s comments to alert you of their experiences and perspectives. Good or bad.
To give you an idea of what kind of free stuff you can find here, I gathered a list of some of the popular items.
There are, of course, hundreds, if not thousands of other freebies being posted to /r/freebies every single day, so it pays to keep an eye on it.
But for now, here’s a sampler kit of what you can find there:

5 things to know when browsing Reddit Freebies.
Hate missing out on free stuff?
Then pay attention to the following must-know tips. Knowing them will greatly increase your chances of getting what you want.
1. Many freebies have limits, like:
- While supplies last
- Tuesdays only
- Before 4:00 pm (or after, or whenever)
- Seasonal only—like springtime or Thanksgiving
- Location—by nation, by state/province, by city
So, for some objects of your desire, you’ll need to move fast or live in the right place.
2. Subscribe to r/freebies
Here’s the thing…
For beginners, Reddit is a tough place to navigate. It is unlike any other social media/forum you have ever used. It takes some getting used to.
For example, If you search “freebies” from the home page, you get a different listing and different page set-up than you do when you go straight to Reddit Freebies.
On the other hand, you might like having more options.
Either way, to make things easier for yourself, just subscribe to /r/freebies (yes, it’s free).
When you log in to Reddit, you’ll be able to see a list of all the subreddits that you are subscribed. Plus, Reddit will automatically display some of the latest and most popular posts on those subreddits on your homepage. That means you won’t miss anything and you can get to the subreddit quicker and easier.
3. Use the “hide expired” and “show expired” buttons.
If you want to browse efficiently, click the “hide expired” button to avoid wasting time.
If you’re curious about all the recent possibilities—or if you like to torment yourself with “Oh, girl! I just missed it!”—then select “show expired.”
In this case, at least the “expired” entries are made clear, so you won’t be confused about what is still “live” or expired.
You can also “Sort by Region” here—meaning by nation or global.
4. If you’re not sure about a freebie…
Reddit keeps comments about all the freebies with each freebie link.
See what others are saying about a particular freebie.
You can join and comment too if you like.
5. Use the search feature to search within /r/freebies
Entries are random, but there is a Search field. So, look for anything free you like—e.g., art, coupons, food, you-name-it.
Be sure to check the little box to “limit my search to r/freebies.”
Otherwise, you pull up a universe of anything containing your keywords.
Even then, you’ll get off-target items.
For example, a search for food freebies not only brings up lots of pet food freebies but also a bumper sticker like “No farms, no food.”
To browse the most recent and closest listings for your free goodies, go to Reddit.com and Reddit Freebies.
How to find more free stuff on Reddit
Now, /r/freebies isn’t the only place to find totally free stuff on Reddit. There are many other subreddits, some of which focus entirely on a certain product or category of products.
Here are some of the most popular and active subreddits where you can find free things, discounts and info that can lead you to save money overall:
- r/freebies and samples
- r/free stickers (Focused entirely on free stickers.)
- r/Redbox (Subreddit where people share Redbox codes for free movie rentals.)
Not enough for you?
I’m going to give you the link to the mother load of free stuff on Reddit.
It’s the Wiki page for freebie related subreddit.

The bottom line
Reddit is an awesome – and rather unknown and underutilized – place to get things without paying for ’em.
Be sure to keep an eye on /r/freebies and a few other subforums if you like getting free stuff. You never know what you’re going to find.
If you like what you unearth there, you will want to return often to keep mining the never-ending variety of freebies at Reddit.
