    How To Get Freebies Without Being Scammed 

     

    Here is your ultimate guide to getting legitimate free products in 2018 without getting scammed or ripped off. 

     

    We all love good freebies, and fortunately, there are many websites online that are happy to give them to you.  Although many of them list the same products, for the most part, it is very important to ensure that you go to the best sites so that you don't waste a lot of time sorting through rubbish. 

     

    Begin by making sure you read all of the fine print

    There might be a catch with some freebies, including needing to buy something (so actually that isn't at all free!).  Make sure that you read any fine print to know what you are getting into and what the terms and conditions are. 

     

    Look for reviews

     

    Before you sign up for anything, first do some research on the company or website, and look for comments and reviews online.  If there is just one bad report, don't get all hung up on it.  However, there is probably a good reason if nobody has anything good to say. 

     

    Don't give out your payment information

     

    If you never give credit card numbers out then there won't be a chance of you getting charged unexpectedly for anything.  There are some free trials that might ask you to enter in your payment information.  If you do decide to do that make absolutely sure to cancel before you are charged anything. 

     

    If it sounds too good to be true, then probably it is!  

     

    It is possible to get items for free like freebie rewards and free samples, but you will never get a free car, hundreds of pounds in cash, etc. So if an offer sounds way too good to be true, then most likely it is.

    Freebie sites

    FUNKY TAPE MEASURE 

     

    As a crafter you can never have too many tape measures! So when funky tape measure asked me to review one of their personalised tape measures I was happy to.

     

     

    The tape measure arrived quickly and was packaged beautifully in a nice box so it looked like a present. It was protected in tissue paper too. The print was clear with nice bright colours and the quality of the tape measure is really good.

    There are so many options you can have but I asked for the keep calm and cast on slogan on mine. I love this tape measure it's so shiny and really robust. Has great measurements on each sides of the tape too which is a must have when measuring larger garments that I'm making.

     

      

     

     

    The Funky Tape Measure has a belt clip at the back and a lock for when you are measuring. It also has the measurements on both sides which are good for different types of work and it is rated as EC Class II which the people at Funky Tape Measure explain means it can be used by builders and tradesmen as well as just people who are doing DIY and crafts.

     

     

    So if you are looking for a different style of tape measure that you can personalise then Funky Tape Measure is the place for you!
