Great Resources for Free Stuff Online

 

The best things in life aren’t always free, but it sure is nice to get stuff without paying. If you’re shopping on a dime and got no time to wade through internet slush-piles, you might try some of these resources we’ve collected. Here are some favorite go-to places for free games, downloads and handy how-to videos.

Great Destinations for How-To Videos

And, some folks’ very lives depend on the proliferation of how-to videos on the web. This article from MakeUseOf.com lists some of the most popular destinations for how-to videos and tutorials.

And if You’re Really Ambitious

If you want to branch out and try scoring things beyond the web, you might learn something from the author of The $39 Experiment. He wrote letters asking for free stuff from a wide range of companies, and then documented their (mostly) generous responses. Some of the letters are hilarious in their own right. Willing to try this with Apple or Microsoft, anyone?

Dear Apple, I really like that cute gadget called the iPad 2. Do you want to send me one, so I can share it with all of my friends?
