Other Ways to Get a Free Calendar
You can request calendars on the websites above. Those aren’t your only options though.
Here are a few more ways to get a calendar for free.
14. Check with car dealerships
Some car dealerships like Toyota, Ford, and GM sometimes give out calendars. So be on the lookout.
15. Ask at auto parts stores
Check with auto parts stores like NAPA, Autozone, and AdvanceAuto as they may offer free calendars.
16. Contact companies directly
Sometimes free calendar giveaways are kept low key. So a company may not post a request form on their site, like the ones above, and instead, they’ll just wait for people to request freebies. So, send a DM to your favorite brands on social media or visit their website for a contact form or email address you can use to request a free calendar.
17. Contact local banks
Be on the lookout for calendar giveaways next time you’re at the bank. Many banks prepare calendars but just keep it low key. So ask for a calendar, and you may get one!
18. Participate in contests, giveaways, and sweepstakes
Whether it’s a contest, a giveaway, or a sweepstake, be on the lookout for opportunities to get a calendar for free. Many companies host contests where they give away freebies, and many give away promotional items like calendars. A good place to keep up to date with giveaways is on social media. Just enter and you could win a calendar. It’s important to note though that there are a lot of scams out there. So do be careful. You should never have to pay to enter a contest, giveaway, or sweepstakes.
19. Ask at real estate agencies
Some realtors get promotional materials printed out to hand out as freebies. This can include calendars. Major agencies offer these out, so visit these offices if you’d like to get your hands on one.
20. Chinese restaurants
I’ve had a free calendar from a Chinese restaurant near me. So it’s totally possible you could get one as well. Lots of them offer wall calendars. The best part is that since Chinese New Year is later, you can often get one up until mid-February.
21. Check with local churches
Some churches give away free religious calendars each year. So it can be worth seeing if your church offers one this year.
