Can you really get free baby stuff or is it just a way to get you to give up your email address and info?

November 262009

I signed up for some "free baby stuff" sites and now I get alot of these emails saying "free coupons" or "free baby gifts" and "free diapers", ect. I have complied with a couple of the surveys until I get to the point where I have to actually make a purchase of something I don’t want or give out my cc info. Has anyone ever actually gotten any of these "free" offers without the hassle? Usually, all I end up with is more junk emails and more bogus offers. Suggestions on good sites that don’t require you to give so much personal info??? I’d even take diaper coupons and things like that as long as I don’t have to buy something first or commit to something I don’t want, like an estimate or a sales phone call.
Thanks, in advance!

No I have never done those things. When I was pregnant I called every 800 number on every baby package I could get my hands on and asked to be put on their mailing lists. I ended up with lots of coupons and free samples. I often got free formula from carnation.

    Maybe you can go to a real baby store like babys ‘r’ us ect. because the internet free scams are rubbish and you can get viruses i the computer. good luck with the baby.

    I have tried to get the free stuff off the computer like you did and yes they all are scams! The only way to truely get any free stuff is to do like the one person said and call the 800 number on the pkgs. Also I hit rummage sales, clip coupons and look in the newspaper for free offers and stuff. I have even once found in the paper a woman who was just giving away 5 pkgs of diapers cause her baby grew too fast.

    Both are true. There really is free stuff out there, but they will make you give information making it possible for them to bombard you with advertising. There are also more scams out there than there are real freebies.
    There are some sites devoted to steering you to the real freebies. Just do a web search for freebies, and always be carefull what information you give out and who you give it too.
