Free Samples -- January Week 4

Well I goofed guys. Since this was originally a monthly blog I completely forgot it was now weekly and missed a whole week. Luckily it's a leap year so that makes up for it. (Some how). So this month I have lots of exciting new sites for you to visit. Thanks to a new site called Entrecard I've been able to find not only great sites, but awesome blogs filled with freebies. By now you may have noticed "Todays Featured Blog" over in the right hand corner. Well that's one of the many users who use this blog promoting service. So if you love me (and who doesn't haha) then check out the blog that's featured today. While I'm not picky on who advertises on this blog, I will make sure that each site that does is rated PG-13 and under. So don't be afraid to click over with kids in the room.

While your here don't forget the ongoing contest for other bloggers and site owners. For every non spam comment you make, you win a chance to be that months Honorary Mention. Which includes not only being part of Site of the Month and My Favorite Freebie edition but also gives you the opportunity to write your OWN ad! *Please keep in mind that if your site or blog is about anything offensive such as porn (pictures) or hate speech then you aren't eligible to win. Make sure you leave contact information. I test my links constantly to see if they are working but if you find one that I have missed please contact me so this can be rectified.

Stop! It's freebie time!



Free iTunes Store Downloads

This is a great blog for those of us who have Ipods or simply like free music. If you have iTunes you probably know that they give out several free items a week, from songs, to audiobooks, to shows. Finding all the free stuff can be a pain, so luckily we have this site to tell us what's free and when. It's convenient, it's reliable, and it's accurate. So head over to this site to catch up on all the freebies that iTunes has to offer. 8/10



Stuff To Get

Okay, this was a site that I debated with myself whether or not it should be included. It's has some pros and a lot of cons. But in the end I just couldn't say no. It's a brand new blog only a few months old. But it's definitely shaping out to be something special. While this is NOT a true freebie site, it's first couple of posts included: free game sites and freeware software. Since this blog promises to deliver more of this type of eclectic posting with some interesting sites, I'd call this a site to watch closely. Rating reserved for future posts.



TV Heaven

A good sized blog site that lists shows available for watching and downloading off the internet. While not the biggest of sites, it still has some good links and a nice collection to keep you occupied for hours and hours. 7/10



OV Guide

This site is the ultimate in watching movies and tv shows online. To describe all it has to offer would take pages. This is the must see site of this week. This site lists everything from free movies to free shows to free anything you can think of. To not see this site will mean your life is not complete. This may sound like overkill in praise but I have this one bookmarked and so should you. 10/10



Great Books

Great Books is a wonderful site for lovers of classic literature. It features a chapter a day in the form of podcast. Download it to bring on the road or just sit back and listen to some of histories greatest books. This is all completely free and really easy to use. 9/10



EGames

A great site for the gamer in all of use. This large selection of free games will keep you shooting, punching, and racing for hours on end. For those that need to kill some free time or want to just sit back and have some fun, this site is for you. 9/10



Moneysponser

Moneysponser is a fairly intensive site with a good amount of freebies. While this site does offer some "free" samples, this is by no means the norm. The plus for this site is the in depth ad you get when clicking for a freebie. It tells you all about the product you're going for, which is a great idea considering it might not be something you want or need after checking it out. 7/10



Freebie Fanatics

Another blog full of great freebies. While only a blog, it has many of the features and in fact surpasses some full websites. Proving that you don't need your own domain name to run a fabulous webpage. It's informative, it's thorough, and it's easy to navigate. A great site and absolute must see for any true freebie hunter. 10/10

Free Samples -- January Week 2

Hey faithful readers of Free Sample Quest. You might be noticing some big changes soon. Here's the first, Free Sample Quest will now updated weekly! What you talking about blogger, you might be asking. Well it's simple, there are so many great free sample and software sites out there that updating once a month just wasn't cutting it. So now you get %75 more free stuff for the price of %0! Second is the delivery of those sites. A new theme and more content for you to enjoy. Freebie Site of the Month and My Favorite Freebie will now be posted at the end of each month in their very own edition.

Plus an exciting contest for other bloggers and site owners. For every non spam comment you make, you win a chance to be that months Honorary Mention. Which includes not only being part of Site of the Month and My Favorite Freebie edition but also gives you the opportunity to write your OWN ad! *Please keep in mind that if your site or blog is about anything offensive such as porn (pictures) or hate speech then you aren't eligible to win. Make sure you leave contact information. I test my links constantly to see if they are working but if you find one that I have missed please contact me so this can be rectified.

So without further ado, here are the freebies!



Mr. Freeloader

Mr. Freeloder is a website to check out but with lots of caution. This is another site that makes no distinction between free and free* so be careful what you click on. One link brought me to some website that wanted to download a toolbar. If you have the patience to wade through the free* offers then check out this site. It does have some quality freebies. It's an even split between legitimate freebies and avoid at all cost "freebies". 5/5



ThunderFap

When a freebie site lists as one of it's facts "we don't post offers that aren't 100% free" you know it's a keeper. This is an easy to use site that offers some interesting freebies as well as the more standard ones. The only issue you might have with this site is that there are a number of broken or expired links. But none leading to a freebie hunters foe, the fill out a survey for a gift, site. Thunderflap is going on my daily check list and I suggest it goes on yours. It has an optional weekly newsletter. Update on that next time. 9/10



All 4 Free Freebie Tree

A large site that sincerely wants to bring you free samples. Right on the front page you are encouraged to contact the webmaster with broken or expired links so non of those here. This a general freebie site with it's share of bad freebies but the majority are great. It does link to trial offers but explains why they are listed and what your freebie will be. It will take some time to go though each category and link on this site but it's worth it to find the freebie gold. 8/10



1 Stop Free Shop

While this isn't a traditional freebie site it deserves a mention. It's best freebies are the craft, needlework, and woodcraft pattern links. It does have some nice home and family freebies available for you to check out as well. So check this one out for family friendly and creative freebies. 6/10



A Huge Deal

This is not a freebie site. But this site is full of coupon codes. The majority of this site seems like a giant advertisement but in reality it's a site simliar to mine. I take you to freebie sites and they take you to sales. How long the sale is on for, what the sale is about, and if possible the coupon code to get you some interesting offers. For the general freebie hunter this isn't the site for you. For those that actually WANT to buy items at sale prices then then it is. The best part that everyone is encouraged to check out is the store reviews. Whether your buying over the internet or just walking in, who couldn't use a review of the store. 7/10



Dream Freebies

A small site with only a few freebies. But the ones that are here are worth checking out. This site will only take a few minutes to check out and you really should. The site itself is pleasant to look and it and easy to get through. A nice little site with a few quality freebies. 6/10



Baby University

Family friendly and baby freebies are the specialty of this site. While they are limited on what they offer for samples, the samples are a lifesaver for new parents. The freebie links are easy to find and they are truly free. A true must see for parents new and old. 9/10

Free Samples -- January

Happy New Year! I hope it was good one for everyone out there. Hope Christmas brought lots of good cheer and the new year brought a new resolution that we can all stick to (crosses fingers). I have lots of new freebies to bring to you. Some new stuff to brighten the year. So let's all say a final goodbye to 2007 and bring on the freebies for 2008! This month I'm bringing you some non-traditional freebie sites suggested by you guys and gals. Plus I'm introducing a few new things. First will be the Freebie Site of the Month. This is absolute must see site of the month. This is the one folks, so make it your first stop. And don't forget My Favorite Freebie. This will be a direct link to one freebie. It's my favorite and hopefully it will be yours. Please feel free to post comments and let me of any offers I might miss! Now let's go!



Best 101 Free Computer Software For Your Daily Use

That's a very long name for a very simple blog. And who can argue with free software. This blog links to some fantastic software (freeware/shareware) to make your computing life easier. It would be impossible to explain all the stuff you can get from checking out this blog. So, you're just going to have to check it out yourself. It's nicely laid out into categories so finding what you need will be a snap. This blog takes the programs we need and want everyday and lays them out for it. As a bonus, check out the comments for some picks that are not listed. As with all software be careful when downloading. Always run a virus scan after downloading anything. 10/10



101 Best Web Freebies - Freebie Site of the Month

The reason this hits as freebie site of the month is because of the shear number and quality of the freebies it links to. If you need a slighty easier life then you must check this site. 101 Best Web Freebies is brought to you by BusinessWeek and it shows in the quality of writing. But don't let the name scare you, it's not just for businesses. It links to freebies that can used by the regular person. It includes everything from photo-editing to comic books to learning how to draw, this site is a winner. 10/10



25 Free Mmorpgs

Continuing the theme so far, I bring you another blog. This one for the gamers. 25 Free Mmorpgs is a blog that lists the games we can download or play in our browser for FREE. Free in MMO's means free to play and download but extra stuff costs you money. But the gaming experience isn't in any way less fun by being a "freebie." So if you're a gamer, this is a must see site. The writer even goes so far as to give you all the information in neat little paragraphs similar to what you see here. 7/10



Free audio and video stream broadcasting software

This page is small and has only four offerings but for those of you that want a podcast or a web show and can't afford the staggering prices for broadcasting software then this site is for you. It lists the workable free software you can use to get that podcast off the ground. While I have not downloaded all this software, McAfee SiteAdvisor gives this page a green. With no spam, viruses, or trojans emanating from the 124 downloads they took from this site. Once again I stress running a virus check after each download but this gets a clean from the experts. So check it out. 6/10



Play Free Games Online

Here's another great one for the gamers. This site lists free to play multi-player games. The requirements to become listed in the directory are intensive so you know only quality games will make it. The only catch in this site is that while it lists many free to play games, it also lists free to play for a TRAIL period games. Leaving you with the decision whether you want to continue playing or not. Since the majority are free to play indefinitely this is a terrific site for us gamers to find something new to spice up our Fridays nights ;) 8/10



Best Online Documentries

Are you the documentary type of person? Then prepare to fall in love with this site. Over 650 quality documentaries to watch completely free. Sit back, grab some popcorn, and get ready for some great viewing. 9/10



My Favorite Freebie!

This is a freebie for gamers. Register with Goozex and get a credit for a free game. This is a game swapping site so with your credit you mark the game you want and when it becomes available it is sent to you. I signed up and within 1 day my game was in the mail. Joining this site is completely free. Plus Military personal get THREE free games upon joining!
