The truth about getting free stuff in Canada, is that most freebies start on Facebook fan pages. What do Cadbury Dairy Milk, Triscuit Canada, Maple Leaf Foods and L'Occitane en Provence all have in common? The answer is that these are just a handful of companies who recently gave away free products to Canadians that originated from Facebook!
What does this mean to the average Canadian--and how do you get free chocolate bars, boxes of crackers, packages of bacon and vials of designer hand lotion?
First, you need to have a Facebook account in order to qualify for many of these freebies. Next, you need to find out which companies are offering free product coupons and samples--and when.
Checking out a good site like Zwap (in the freebies section) will definitely tip you off to Facebook offers. Other sites like Smart Canucks and Red Flag Deals also have forums for free stuff.
Sometimes knowing when and where a freebie is being offered is not sufficient to pluck what is free. When quantities are limited (which is always the case), time is of the essence to hurry to get a freebie for yourself!
Wishing all of us many more great freebies for 2012!
